Tribute to Kavish Badri: A unique Ghazal

Kavish Badri's Urdu ghazal
Renowed Urdu poet Kavish Badri died in his native town, Ambur, in Vellore district of Tamil Nadu recently. One of the masters of Urdu poetry, Kavish Badri was among the most prominent Urdu writers in South India.

One of his ghazals with a unique ‘radeef’ is being posted here. It’s just a glimpse to the master craftsman who enriched Urdu language and literature for decades.

He was 84. Kavish Badri was published in Urdu journals across the world. His ghazals were a permanent feature in literary magazine, Shabkhoon.

Vellore has a subtantial Urdu speaking populace. In fact, one of the pioneers of Urdu ghazal, Vali Vellori (not to be confused with Wali Dakhni) also hailed from this town.

  7. this urdu ghazal of kavish is good but its not pleasing to read it as there are certain mistakes in typing. It should be corrected as while reading the shers sound odd if it looks like out of wazan or behar that is poetic balance.as a singer and poet myself I feel very uncomfortable reading this ghazal. thanks

  10. Kai badnamia’n hoti , kai ilzam sar jatey
    Magar ae kash ham dono’n hamee’n dono pe mar jatey

    Agar tum khab hotey to tumhe aankho’n mai rakkh letey
    Na goya neend se phir jagtey hatta k marr jatey

    Agar hum roshni hotey to phir ahsas ki lau se
    Zamee’n ko chhorh detey mill k dono’n chand par jatey

    Agar tum phool hotey to tumhari khushboo mein rehtey
    Samandar ki tarah hotey to ham tum mein utar jatey

    Hamarey khal-o-khadd kaise hain ye ab tak nahi dekha
    Agar tum aaina hotey to hamm kitney sanwar jatey

    Agar sooraj hi hotey to phir apni dhoop ki surat
    Wajood-e-yaar ki dharti pe SHAHI hum bikhar jatey.
    Poet:Yaseen Shahi
