Some beautiful collection from a friend's blog..Part4

A Gujarati poet - Gani Dahiwala in a very famous Gazal of his says this about comparison of his love with the beloved who got separated as :
Tame Raaj Raani na Chir sam, Ame Rank Naar ni Chundadi,
Tame Tan par raho ghadi-be-ghadi, ame saath daiye kafan sudhi
which can be translated as :

Tum ho jaise kisi maharaani ke vastr-aabhushan, hum hai gareeb naari ki chunari,
Tum rehte ho tan par pal-do-pal, ham saath dete hai kafan tak.

Gulzaar, who has written many memorable songs in his long career as poet and who has written some of the most contemporary songs at all times writes in one of his early works about the way of living in this world :

Jab bhi ji chaahe nayi duniya saja lete hai log,
ek chehre pe kai chehre laga lete hai log

And this incompleteness of things that always remains with everyone and that is always beautifully summrized by poets and can also be seen in Nida Fazli's beautiful words :

Kabhi kisi ko mukammal Jahaan nahi milta,
Kahin zameen to kahin aasman nahi milta

Wish to write more on such couplets as I keep remembering them. May be some other time part 2 :) But something here for a day like today (23rd March)
