Kuch asha’ar ek unwan par II

This was supposed to be a regular series, as I promised in its first post a few days back. But the great vissectitudes of life – a overwhelming flurry of momentous developments, some expected and a greater lot unexpected, kept me from following through on my committment. However, excuses and explanations can go on and on but it will be more apt to return to the point. I will just say that from now on, I will make a determined and resolute effort to be regular in posts – not only on this series but the others too. 

Anyway, Berhaal, mudda par laut te hai. Is silsila ka doosra jo unwan main ne chuna hain, woh hai “Tanhai-o-bekasi”. Is unwan par kuch jaane-mane shairon (jis mein ek na-maalum bhi shaamil hain) ke asha’ar aapke nazar. Aghaz Hakim Momin Khan ‘Momin’ se. Tawajju chahunga.

Hanste to dekhte hain kisi ko kisi se ham
Munh dekh dekh rote hain kis bekasi se ham

Ab Hazrat ‘Dagh Dehlvi’

Ab dil hai maqam bekasi ka
Yun ghar na tabah ho kisi ka

Dabistan-e-Dehli ke in donon alambardaron ke bad dekhiye ahl-e-Dabistan-e-Lakhnau ka kya khayal hai

Asr Lakhnavi ke lafzon mein

Idhar se aaj vo guzre to munh phere hue guzre
Ab in se bhi hamari bekasi dekhi nahi jaati

Aziz Lakhnavi:

Ab is bekasi se to behtar hai mar ja
Are zindagani basar karne waale

Safi Lakhnavi:

Vo josh-e-tanhai-shab-e-gham voh har taraf bekasi ka aalam
Kati hain aankhon me raat sari tadap tadap kar sehr hui hai

aur Saqib Lakhnavi:

Main ro raha hoon jo dil ko to bekasi ke liye
Digarna maut to duniya mein hain sabhi ke liye

Ab to khayal aa raha hoga kuch danishmand logon ko ke aise unwaan mein Fani Badayuni abhi tak nazil nahi huye. Khair intezaar khatm ho gaya.

Yeh kis qayamat ki bekasi hai! Na main hi apna na yaar mera
Na khatir-e-beqaraar meri, na deedah-e-ashkbaar mera

Is ke baad Raghupati Sahai Firaaq Gorakhpuri… is unwan par unke do asha’ar

Main hoon dil hai tanhai hai
Tum bhi jo hote achcha hota

aur

Is dil ki qismat mein tanhaiyan thi
Kabhi jis ne apna paraya na jaana

Ek namaalum shair:

Yeh kaun aata tanhaiyon mein jaam liye
Jalv mein chandni raatein ka ihtimaam liye

Afsar Meeruti:

Dikhave ki hain sab yeh duniya ke mele
Bhare bazm mein ham rah rahe hai akele

Saghir Aligarhi:

Tanhai firaaq ka aalam na poochiye
Goya kisi ke sog mein aalam khamosh tha

aur aakhir mein Adeeb Malegaonvi. Is ko maine akhir ke liye is liye rakha tha kyunki is khayal se main khaas ittefaq rakhta hoon, aur is saal mehsoos bhi kar chuka hoon. Berhaal…..

Bhari duniya mein koi bhi nazar aata nahi apna
‘Adeeb’! Ek daur aisa bhi guzar jaata hai insan par

 Aaj ke liye itna hi. Silsila jaari rahega…. Shab ba-khair. Khoda nigehbaan
