JAGAN NATH AZAD KI NAZM, GHALIB PAR

30 Jun

Ham sakhun fahm hain Ghalib ke taraf daar nahiN

DekheiN is sehre se kah de koi behtar sehra.

 

Ghalib himself advocated that people should look at the substance in the lyrics and should not like them ONLY because they are from Ghalib. This is a great position taken by the greatest of all poets. In the above sher he says this much about the sehra he wrote for the dulha who was probably a prince of his time, but by extension it applies to all of his shaayri.

In this nazm Jagan Nath Azad gives a well deserved tribute to him.

    Wah janab, Azaad ki kia khobsorat nazm ap ne share kardi he. yaqeenan ye aik tareekhi nazm he. Aza ki apni hesiyat bhi boht baRi he. inhon ne ghalib ki zameenoN par on ko boht khobsorat andaz me khiraj e tehseen paish kia hay. shukria share karne k liye.

      Ghalib ki zamenein, tarkeebein, andaaz, khayaal, kya kaya kahein ham to aajiz hain khud apni hi be sabaati par. Lekin itni samajh zaroor thi ke yeh sab ko pasand aye gi, lehaza……

    Such a beautiful compliment in the shape of Nazm coming from such a legend Jagan Nath Azad matters . Obviously Ghalib alone deserves it . Thanks Shakil Bhai

      Mazhar Sahab, Ham jaise kam fahm to zubaan kholne ke bhi qabil nahin hain. Azaad ko yeh zeb deta hai ke unke bare mein kuchh kahen. Ham to bas dam bakhud se rah jaate hai Ghalib ko paRh kar. Hamein andaza tha ke yeh aap jaise urdu lovers ko zaroor achchi lage gi. woh hi hua.

    Mumkin naheen ki bazm-e-tarab phir sajaa sakoon,
    Ab ye bhi hai bahut ki tumhain yaad aa sakoon.

    Ye kyaa tilism hai ki teri jalvaagaah say ,
    Nazadeek aa sakoon na kaheen door jaa sakoon.

    Zauq-e-nigaah aur bahaaron kay darmiyaan,
    Parde gire hain vo ki na jin ko uthaa sakoon.

    Teri haseen fizaa main mere ai naye vatan,
    Aisaa bhi hai koi jise apanaa banaa sakoon.

    ‘Azad’ saaz-e-dil pe hain raqsaan ke zam-zame,
    Khud sun sakoon magar na kisi ko sunaa sakoon.
