ki puchhde ho haal fakeeraaN da!

A masterpiece in my opinion by Shiv Kumar Batalvi! Such sadness in there and such a beautiful Ghazal in Punjabi.

ki puchhde ho haal fakeeraaN da, saaDaa nadiyaaN vichhRe neeraaN da
saaDaa hunj di jooN ne aayaaN da, saaDaa dil jaleyaa dil-geeraaN da

eh jaandeyaaN kuj shoKh jahe, rangaaN da hi naaN tasveeraaN hai
jad haT gaye, asi ishqe di, mull kar baiThe tasveeraaN da!

saanu lakhaaN da tan labh gayaa, par ik da man vi naa mileyaa
kya likheyaa kise, muqaddar si.. hatthaaN diyaaN chaar lakeeraaN da

taqdeer taaN apni sauNkan si, tadbeeraaN saathoN na hoiyaaN
na jhaNg chhuTeyaa, na kan paaTe, jhuND laNg gayaa ainj heeraaN da

mere geet vi lok suninde ne, naale kaafir aakh sadinde ne
maiN dard nouN kaabaa kah baiThaa, rab naaN rakh baiThaa peeRaaN da!
