Shakeel Badayuni’s paean to Lucknow

Lakhnau ki tehzeeb tarikh mein bemisaal ohda rakhti hai….. Ek shair Shakeel Badayuni ne ise ek geet mein bahut khubsuri se bayaan kiya hai. Aap khud hi dekhen …

Yeh Lakhnau ki sarzameen
Yeh Lakhnau ki sarzameen
Yeh rang-rup ka chaman
Yeh husn-o-ishq ka watan
Yahin to woh muqaam hain
Jahan Avadh ki shaam hain
Jawaan-Jawaan haseen haseen
Yeh Lakhnau ki sarzameen

Shabaab-o-sher ka ye ghar
Yeh ahl-e-ilm ka nagar
Hai manzilon ki god mein
Yahan har ek rah-guzar
Yeh shahr laaladaar hai
Yahan dilon mein pyaar hai
Jidhar nazar uthaaiye
Bahaar hi bahaar hai
Kali-kali hai naazneen
Yeh Lakhnau ki sarzameen

Yahan ki sab ravaayaten
Adab ki shaahakar hain
Ameer ahl-e-dil yahan
Gareeb jan-nisar hain
Har ek shaak par yahan
Hain bulabulon ki chah-chahen
Gali-gali mein zindagii
Kadam-Kadam pe kah-kahen
Har ek nazaara hai dilanasheen
Yeh Lakhnau ki sarzameen
Yeh Lakhnau ki sarzameen……
