Tum aao to sahi


'Dreamworld' by Neha

Tum ko hum dil mein basa lengay tum aao to sahi
sari duniya se chupa lengay tum aao to sahi

ek wada karo ab hum se na bichro gay kabhi
naaz hum sareY utha legay tum aao to sahi

bewafa bhi ho, sitamgar bhi, jafa peshah bhi

hum khuda tum ko bana lengay tum aao to sahi
raah tareek hai aur door hai manzil lekin
dard ki shammain jala laingay tum aao to sahi

tum ko hum dil mein basa lengay tum aao to sahi
saari duniya say chupa lengay tum aao to sahi


-Mumtaz Mirza

Key to Urdu Words: Basa: To dwell, Naaz: Pride, Jafa: Oppression,Taareek: Dark

Acchi Gazal Hai balkeh boht Umda!
in third "shair" there is a typographical mistake however. that is "Jafa ke shah"instead of "jafa Peshah"
correct kr lain
take care

You mean it should be "Jafa Peshah" instead of Jafa ke Shah? what does Peshah mean?

Thank you!

NadeemSiddiqui said...

if we see literally peshah means"profession" or Job but in this phrase"jafa peshah" means "habitual betrayer" the person who betrays and his/her conscience doesnt prick.

did you read Pathrao? kaisi lagi?

see you

Hi Nadeem,

The poet is Rahat Indori...see the amazing Youtube video ( link is in the original post)...you will like it even more after you hear him recite it!!

Peace,
Neha
