Music : Jagjit Singh
Lyrics : Rana Sahri

This ghazal refelcts my mood of the moment.

***
Koi dost hai na raqeeb hai,
tera sehar kitna ajeeb hai.

Woh jo ishq tha woh junoon tha,
yeah jo hijre hai ye naseeb hai.

Yahan kiska chehra padha karoon,
yahan kaun itna kareeb hai.

Main kise kahoon mere saath chal,
yahan sab ke sar pe saleeb hai.
***
कोई दोस्त है न रकीब है,
तेरा शहर कितना अजीब है.

वह जो इश्क था वह जूनून था,
ये जो हिज्र है ये नसीब है.

यहाँ किसका चेहरा पढ़ करूं,
यहाँ कौन इतना करीब है.

मैं किसे कहूं मेरे साथ चल,
यहाँ सब के सर पे सलीब है.
***

रकीब/raqeeb=enemy/दुश्मन
सलीब/saleeb=cross (for explanation see manish’s comment)
हिज्र/Hijre=Sepration/वियोग, विरह (28-02-2008)

In the third sher all the emotions of an intimate relation is comprehended. When you are so close with someone where a whisper seems louder than shout. A whisper seems to shake the feeling of being close. You can stare at the face , you can look into the eyes without hesitation and lost in tranquality. You read the person through the eyes. And if you have ever read , able to read , such a pair of eyes, you are scholarly then put all scholars togather.
