An Avadhi Love Song

Main guzashte hafte mushaira ka ek CD suna tha aur iske hawaale se meri Faizabad ke shayar Rafiq Shadani se ta’aruf hua, aur unke Avadhi bol ka lutf uthaya…. bahut der ke baad maine yeh zabaan suni thi. Berhaal, yeh jo main aapke samne geet rakh raha hoon, is mein Rafiq sahab ne mazahiya shairi ki purani rivayat ka amal kiya hain – jis mein koi mashoor shayar ke naami kalaam, ya aage daur mein, filmi geet ya ghazal ka ek misra asar badhane ke shaamil kar liya jaata hai….

Aise is mein bhi hai…. jabse maine yeh suna tha,  yeh mera man mein dohrata rehta tha aur main khud hi hansta tha. Aap ke saath iski shirkat karne ka khayaal mujhe tab aaya jab ek raat mujhe ek khwaab mein maine khud ko ise kisi ko gaate hue dekha…. Ya Rab. Kabhi mujhe apne tasavvur ki unchi parwaz se khauf lagta hai. Khair, jaane dijiye. Aap geet padhe aur Rafiq sahab ke lafzon mein: “Na pasand aaye to wahan se hi wapas kar dijiyega”

Ham kahe ye unse darat-darat
Taure naam ki puja karat-karat
Ham japbe maala marat-marat
Tori gali mein karbe gasht-gasht
Tu cheez badhi hai mast-mast

Yeh duniya ranga-rang bhayi
Tore karan kitno jang bhayi
Kitno ki tapasya bhang bhayi
Ba hamro man bhi ast-vyast
Tu cheez badhi hai mast-mast

Ke taure roop ki charcha gaon-gaon
Taure chahne-waale thaon-thaon
Taure zulf mein dhoondhe chaon-chaon
Ba waqt hai bahut sakht-sakht
Tu cheez badhi hai mast-mast

Tu khao jaalebi kurur-kurur
Ham tumka taaki murur-murur
Tu hamka koso buzur-buzur
Tabahun bhi tauri gali lagabaye gasht-gasht
Tu cheez badhi hai mast-mast
