Imran’s Poetry – Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara

Imran

LOVED every word of each of Imran’s (Javed Akhtar’s poetry, recited by Farhan Akhtar) poem in Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara.  Read on for yourself to see why I’m so smitten!

1.                                                                                                    
Dilon me tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Nazar me khwabon ki
Bijliyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise
Aazad rehna seekho
Tum ek dariya ke jaise
Lehron me behna seekho
Har ek lamhe se tum milo
Khole apni baahein
Har ek pal ek naya samaa
Dekhein yeh nigaahein
Jo apni aankhon me
Hairaniyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum
Dilon mein tum apni
Betaabiyan leke chal rahe ho
Toh zinda ho tum

 2.
Jab jab dard ka baadal chaaya
Jab gham ka saaya lehraaya
Jab aansoo palkon tak aaya
Jab yeh tanha dil ghabraaya
Humne dil ko ye samjhaaya
Dil aakhir tu kyon rota hai
Duniya mein yunhi hota hai
Yeh jo gehre sannate hai
Waqt ne sabko hi baante hai
Thoda gham hai sabka kissa
Thodi dhoop hai sabka hissa
Aankh teri bekaar hi nam hai
Har pal ek naya mausam hai
Kyun tu aise pal khota hai
Dil aakhir tu kyon rota hai

3.                                                                                                                              
Ek baat honton tak hai jo aayi nahi
Bas ankhon se hai jhaankti
Tumse kabhi mujhse kabhi
Kuch lafz hai woh maangti
Jinko pehanke honton tak aa jaaye woh
Aawaaz ki baahon mein baahein daale ithlaye who
Lekin jo ye ek baat hai
Ehsas hi ehsas hai
Khushboo si hai jaise hawa mein tairti
Khushboo jo be-aawaaz hai
Jiska pata tumko bhi hai
Jiski khabar mujhko bhi hai
Duniya se bhi chupta nahi
Yeh jaane kaisa raaz hai

4.
Pighle neelam sa behta hua yeh samaa
Neeli neeli si khamoshiyaan
Na kahi hai zameen
Na kahi aasmaan
Sarsaraati hui tehniyaan, pattiyan
Keh rahi hai ki bas ek tum ho yahan
Sirf main hoon meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkane
Aisi gehraiyaan
Aisi tanhaiyaan
Aur main sirf main
Apne honay pe mujhko yaqeen aa gaya
