Hazaaron Khwahishein Aisi

The ghazal this time.
Was searching for the words of this ghazal and found it at this wonderful place: Ghazals of Mirza Ghalib

For the complete ghazal of which the title is just the first line hop over to : Hazaaron Khwahishein Aisi

Of course as usual this meandering led me to the question : What is a Ghazal? Here is the answer: What is a Ghazal?

Before I close this post here is somehting I found in the last page which was very beautiful:

Ghazal rudaad hai naakaamiyon ki,
Ghazal mehrumiyon ki daastaan hai |
Ghazal riste hue zakhmon ka marham,
Ghazal ek chaaraa-e-dard-e-nihan hai |
Ghazal ka husn hi hai, husn-e-aalam,
Ghazal ka noor hi noor-e-jahan hai |
– Jagdish Bhatnagar ‘Hayaat

[Rudaad – Story, Tale; Mehroom – Devoid Of; Risna – Leak; Chaarah – Aid, Cure, Help, Means, Redress, Resource, Remedy; Nihaan – Hidden, Buried; ] from Urdu – English Dictionary

One thought on “Hazaaron Khwahishein Aisi

  1. Something we all forgot – The song “Banwara Man” from the Movie is wayyyyyyyy beyond superb! Its one of those rare songs that has burnt itself into my CD player! Swanand Kirkire is the dude responsible for the song!
    There’s another winner song (qawwali types) “Man Yeh Banwara” which is very very classy!

    -Venky.
