Ghazal #7


आज मन बहुत उदास हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं
कोई मेरे आस पास हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं
Aaj man bhut udaas ho ye zaroori to nhi
Koi mere aas paas ho ye zaroori to nhiN

बादलों ने आख़िर अपना लहू बरसाया है
बुझ गयी हमारी प्यास हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं
badalon ne aakhir apna lahu barsaya hai
Bhujh gyi hamari pyaas ho ye zaroori to nhiN

तेरे ग़म में मेरा जिगर आँखों से बहा है
तेरा ग़म मगर ख़ास हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं
Tere gham Mai mera ziagar aakhon se baha hai
Tera gham mgr khaas ho ye zaroori to nhiN

तू, तेरा हाथ, मेरे काँधे पे तेरा सर
सारा जहान पास हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं
Tu, tera haath, mere kandhe pe tera sar
Sara zahana paas ho ye zaroori to nhiN

IIT Guwahati campus has its own ways of thanking you when you spend a night in its lap. I remember that night, a couple of my friends spent the entire night on a bench near this lake, a few of us slept in between on the same bench and when they woke up they saw this beautiful scenery. I was one of them. This Ghazal I wrote just after waking up on the bench near the lake. “…सारा जहान पास हो ये ज़रूरी तो नहीं”
