Josh Malihabadi’s ghazal

Josh

Josh Malihabadi essentially a poet of Nazm had an excellent command over language. He is rich in vocabulary and passionate. Born in Malihabad near Lucknow in a Pathan family, Shabbir Hasan Khan Josh, was the grandson of Urdu poet Faqir M Khan Goya. For his strong anti-imperialistic views and his contribution to freedom struggle, he was awarded Padma Vibhushan. But seeing the plight of Urdu, he migrated to Pakistan. Though he regretted the decision. His Yaadon-ki-Barat is a unique biography-novel.

  6. Naddi ka morre

    Naddi ka morre
    Chasma-e-sheereen ka zer-o-bum
    Chaadar shab-e-nujoom ki
    Shabnam ka rakht-e-num
    Moti ki aab gul ki mahek maah-e-nau ka khum
    In sub ke imtizaaj sey paida hui hai tu
    Aur kitney haseen ufakk sey hawaida hui hai tu

    Lahja maleeh hai ke namak khaar hoon tera
    Aur seyhat zubaan mein hai key beemaar hoon tera
    Azaad-e-shair hoon key geraftaar hoon tera

    Hoshiyar is liyay hoon key teray karam sey shair-o-sukhan ka imam hoon
    Aur shaahon pey khand-a-zun hoon key tera ghulaam hoon

    ek fakhr khandan tha woo bhi nahi raha
