Zindagi Sirf Mohabbat Nahin Kuch Aur Bhi Hai

Here is one of my favourites

Khoon Apna Ho Ya Paraya



Khoon Apna Ho Ya Paraya Ho Nasle Adam Ka Khoon Hai Akhir
Jung Mashirk Mein Ho Ke Magrib Mein Amne Alam Ka Khoon Hai Akhir

Bum Gharon Per Giren Ke Sarhad Per Ruh-e-Tamir Zakhm Khati Hai
Khet Apne Jalen Ke Aurron Ke Zeest Phako Se Tilmilati Hai

Tank Agey Badhey Ke Pichey Hatey Kokh Dharti Ki Banjh Hoti Hai
Fateh Ka Jashen Ho Ke Haar Ka Sog Zindagi Maiyaton Pe Roti Hai

Bartaree Ke Saboot Ki Khatir Khoon Bahana Hi Kya Zaroori Hai?
Ghar Ki Tareeqiyan Mitane Ko Ghar Jalana Hi Kya Zaroori Hai?

Jung To Khud Hi Ek Masaail Hai Jung Kya Masaailon Ka Hal Degi
Aag Aur Khoon Aaj Bakhshegi Bhookh Aur Ahtiyaaz Kal Daigi

Isliaye Aai Shareef Insano Jung Talti Rahe To Behtar Hai
Aap Aur Hum Sabhi Ke Aangan Mein Shamma Jalti Rahe To Behtar Hai


English Translation


Whether blood be ours or theirs, Its the blood of mankind.
Whether wars be waged in the east or west, It is the murder of world-peace.

Whether houses be bombed or borders The temple of the Soul is wounded.
Whether our farms be torched or others' It is life that convulses with hunger.

Whether tanks roll forward or retreat, The earth's womb is desecrated.
Whether its the celebration of victory or mourning of loss, It is Life that weeps at the graveside.

War is a problem itself. How will war resolve problems?
Today it will rain fire and blood, Tomorrow, hunger and scarcity.

Thus, O' all people of decency, Its better if war is averted.
And better too, if in our courtyards The flame of peace flickers ceaselessly.

Lovely thread. Sahir sahab was definitely a Shayar first and then a lyricist. smile.gif

Kya miliye..

Kya miliye aise logon se, jinki fitrat chhupi rahe,
Naqli chehra saamne aaye, asli surat chhupi rahe.

Khud se bhi jo khud ko chhupaaye, kya unse pehchaan karen,
Kya unke daaman se lipten, kya unka samman karen.
Jinki aadhi neeyat ubhare, aadhi neeyat chhupi rahe,
Naqli chehra saamne aaye, asli surat chhupi rahe.

Dildaari ka dhong rachaakar, jaal bichhaaye baaton ka,
Jeeteji ka rishta kehkar, sukh dhoondhe kuchh raaton ka,
Rooh ki hasrat lab par aaye, jism ki hasrat chhupi rahe,
Naqli chehra saamne aaye, asli surat chhupi rahe.

Jinke zulm se dukhi hai janta, har basti har gaaon mein,
Daya dharam ki baat karen woh, baith ke saji sabhaaon mein,
Daan ka charcha ghar-ghar pahunche, loot ki daulat chhupi rahe,
Naqli chehra saamne aaye, asli surat chhupi rahe.

Dekhen in naqli chehron ki, kab tak jai-jaikaar chale,
Ujale kapdon ki teh mein, kab tak kaala sansaar chale,
Kab tak logon ki nazaron se, chhupi haqeeqat chhupi rahe,
Naqli chehra saamne aaye, asli surat chhupi rahe.
