Prologue

Aao Phir Nazm Kahen
Phir Kisi Dard Ko Sahla Ke Suja Le Ankhen

Phir Kisi Dukhti Rag Se Chhua De Nashtar

Ya Kisi Bhooli Huee Raah Pe Mudkar
Ek Baar
Naam Lekar Kisi Hamnam Ko Awaz Hi De Le
Phir Koi Nazm Kahen

AaAao ifr naj,ma khoM

Nazm of the Month - March 99 (Shafaq)

As we celebrate Holi this month, I have selected this particular poem for the nazm of the month. This nazm is also available in the recent Gulzar album released by Polygram 'Aaj Bicchade Hain' and an old album of Polygram 'Wo jo shayar tha'. The singer and Music Director is Bhupendra.

Roz sahil pe khade hoke yahi dekha hai
Shaam ka pighla hua surkh-sunhari rogan
Roz matiyale-se paani mein yeh ghul jaata hai

Roz sahil pe khade hoke yahi socha hai
Mein jo pighali huee rangeen shafaq ka rogan
Ponchh loo haathon pe

Aur chpuke se ik baar kabhi
Tere gulnaar se rukhsaaron pe chhap se mal doon
Shaam ka pighala hua surkh-sunhari rogan

raoja saaihla Pao KDo hao ko yahI doKa hO
Saama ka ipGalaa huAa sauK- saunahrI raogana
raoja maiTyaalao sao panaI maoM yao Gaula jaata hO

raoja saaihla Pao KDo hao ko yahI saaocaa hO
maOM jaao ipGalaI hue rgaIMna Safk ka raogana
paOMC laUM haQaaoM po
AaOr caupko sao [k baar kBaI
toro gaulanaar sao $KsaaraoM po Cp sao mala dUM
Saama ka ipGalaa huAa sauK- saunahrI raogana


 

Nazm of the Month - Feb 99 (Dastak)

This month, a nazm dedicated to Indo-Pak relationship. Gulzar saheb was born in Pakistan and after Partition, he came to India. The pain of partition can be seen in many of his nazms and stories. This nazm has two distinct views on Indo-Pak relations. The nazm starts with a view of awaam (The hope) and ends with siyasi view of it (The truth). I have added few shers of another nazm to symbolize Wagah meeting as a symbol of hope of improvement of relationship.

Subah subah ik khwab ki dastak par darwaza khola, dekha
Sarhad ke us paar se kuchh mehmaan aaye hain
Aankhon se maanoos the saarey

Chehre saarey sune sunaaye
Paanv dhoye, Haath dhulaye
Aangan mein aasan lagwaaye...
Aur tannoor pe makki ke kuchh mote mote rot pakaye
Potli mein mehmaan mere
Pichhale saalon ki faslon ka gud laaye the

Aankh khuli to dekha ghar mein koi nahin tha
Haath lagakar dekha to tannoor abhi tak bujha nahin tha
Aur hothon pe meethe gud ka jaayka ab tak chipak raha tha

Khwab tha shayad!
Khwab hi hoga! !
Sarhad par kal raat, suna hai, chali thi goli
Sarhad par kal raat, suna hai
Kuchh khwaabon ka khoon hua hai

and on wagah meeting of two PM's

Is mode se jaate hain,
kuchh sust kadam raste, kuchh tej kadam raahein

Is mod se jaati hain har ek taraf raahein

Ye soch ke baithe hain
Ik raah to wo hogi, tum tak jo pahunchti hai, is mode se jaati hai

Nazm of the Month for July, 98

The nazm of this month is 'Alaav'. ALAAV (Alaava)

Raat bhar sard hawa chalti rahi
Raat bha hamne alaav taapa
Maine maazi se kai khushk see shaakhien kaati
Tumne bhi gujre hue lamhon ke patte tode
Meine jebon se nikali sabhi sukhi nazme
Tumne bhi haathon se murjhaaye hue khat khole
Apnee in aankhon se meine kai maanze tode
Aur haathon se kai baasi lakeeren phenki
Tumne palkon pe nami sookh gayee thee, so gira di

Raat bhar jo bhi mila ugte badan par humko
Kaat ke daal diya jalte alaawon main use
Raat bhar phoonkon se har lau ko jagaye rakha
Aur do zismon ke indhan ko jalaye rakha
Raat bhar bujhte hue rishte ko taapa humne

rat Bar sad- hvaa calatI rhI
rat Bar hmanao Alaava, tapa

Humdum (June-98)

The nazm of this month is dedicated to the Environment, as we celebrate World Environment Day (5th June) this month.This nazm depicts relationship between Man and Trees. The main character of the nazm is a tree, who according to the poet is his HUMDUM. In this nazm the poet tells about various stages of his life (childhood, marriage, birth of his son and now in old age) and how this 'Ped' has contributed to his life . Like always, Gulzar saheb ends this nazm with a brilliant climax.
HUMDUM

Mod pe dekha hai wo boodha-sa ek ped kabhi ?
Mera waqif hai, bahut salon se mein use jaanata hoon

Jab mein chhota tha to ik aam udaane ke liye
Parli deewar se kandhon pe chadha tha uske
Jaane dukhti huee kis shaakh se jaa paanv lagaa
Dhaad se phenk diya tha muje neeche usne
Meine khunnas main bahut phenke the pathar us par

Meri shaadi pe mujhe yaad hai shaakhein dekar
Meri vedi ka hawan garm kiya tha usne
Aur jab haamla thi 'Biba' to dopahar main har din
Meri biwi ki taraf kairiyan phenki thi isi ne
Waqt ke saath sabhi phool, sabhi patti gaye

Tab bhi jal jaata tha jab Munne se kehti 'Biba'
'Haan,usi ped se aaya hai tu, Ped ka phal hai'
Ab bhi jal jaata hoon. jab mod se gujarte mein kabhi
Khaanskar kehta hai, 'Kyo, Sar ke sabhi baal gaye?'

'Subah se kaat rahe hain woh Kameti wale
Mod tak jaane ki himmat nahin hoti mujhko'

Din-Raat (May 98)  

Teri Ankhon Se Hi Khulte Hain Saveron Ke Ufaq
Teri Aankhon Se Hi Band Hoti Hai Ye Seep Ki Raat
Teri Aankhen Hain Ya Sajde Main Hai Masoom Namazi
Palken Khulti Hain to Youn Goonj Ke Uthati Hai Nazar
Jaise Mandir Se Jaras Ki Chale Namnaak Hawaa
Aur Jhukti Hain To Bas Jaise Azaan Khatm Huee Ho
Teri Ankhen, Teri Thahri Huee Gamgeen See Ankhen
Teri Ankhon Se Hi Takhleeq Huee Hai Sachchi
Teri Ankhon Se Hi Takhleeq Huee Hai Ye Hayat

You can hear this nazm in the Album 'Boodhe Pahadon Par' released by PAN last year.
Music-Vishal, Singer-Suresh Wadekar
