Ek Nabz hain

Ruba`i
Ek nabz hain ke thamti nahin
Ek nafs hain jo marne nahin deta
Teri ummeed to kab ka chod chuke hain
Bas ek khwaab hain tera jo sone nahin deta
Nazm
Ek nabz hain ke thamti nahin
Ek nafs hain jo marne nahin deta
Teri ummeed to kab ka chod chuke hain
Yeh dil hain ki mehfil se uthne nahin deta
Ek baat har jagah dekhi hain jahaan mein
Hausla badhate sab hain Madad koi nahin deta
Duniyawaalon ko kya kar bura kahein hum
Jo unse humein kuch na mila toh aur koi kya deta
Thak toh bahut chuke hum zindagi se, neend bhi bahut hain aankhon mein
Bas ek khwab hain tera jo mujhe sone nahin deta

Kuch diye gaye the …

Kuch diye gaye the humein Kuch hum yahaan laaye hain
Kai khwab hamare sehar ne churaye hain

Kaagaz ke the kuch khwab jo sabaa ne uda diye
Kuch kachchi mitti ke the, woh kismat ne dhaaye hain

Aankhon se tapke the kuch, Kuch tere hothon se chalke the
Tere saare khwab hum dil mein samet ke laaye hain

Paa liya tujhko toh khuda se aur kya maange Shaoor
Jitne khwab the sab haqeeqat banke aaye hain

Zakhm-e-musalsal se haal-e-jism khastaah hain
Itne ghaav hain hum par, khoon hamaara ristaa hain
Bazaar-e-duniya ke mizaan mein roz jism tulte hain
Dil yahaan pe bikte hain, Imaan yahaan sastaa hain
Koi nahin is shehr mein jo unka pataa bataa sake
Jis kisi se pucha humne, hum se zyaada gum-gashta hain
Koi mehram aisa mila nahin jo dard ki dava bata sake
Koi nahin is shehar mein jo apne dil se vabastaa hain
Jis kisi se pucha humne, “Kitni dur hain manzil ?”
Gaur se humein dekhta hain, abas hum pe hasta hain
Kaisa tabassum hain hothon par, kya noor hain unki aankhon mein
Kismat mein apni woh shae nahin, koi aur hain jo dil mein basta hain
Sunaa hain dast-e-tahammul mein badi shafa hain Shaoor, thoda sabr karle
Sabse juda hain manzil teri, sabse alag tera raasta hain

Osianama hosted a retrospective of Dilip Kumar and Marlon Brando films between 1-10 Dec 2015 at the renovated Liberty Cinema, Mumbai.

Went for Marlon Brando`s “On the Waterfront”, Elia Kazan`s masterpiece about crime and corruption on the docks in 1940`s America. The movie was a major hit and earned Brando`s his first Oscar after being nominated thrice in previous years  – A Streetcar named Desire (1951), Viva Zapata (1952) & Julius Caesar (1953)

Altough the exhibition was billed as display of memorablia of both the actors hardly anything connected to Brando was displayed except a few letters and posters. On the other hand there was treasure of posters (all hand painted !!!), cutouts and lobby cards relating to Dilip Kumar from some of his biggest hits like Mughal-E-Azam which had a whole section dedicated to it. It was also the opening movie for the festival on 1st Dec with Saira Banu as the chief guest.

Jiski Umeed Thi ..

Jiski Umeed thi yeh nahin woh gulistan hain

Haqeeqat-o-Khwab ke beech ab bhi faasla darmiyan hain

 

Umeed thi jis nijaat dehande se

Uska to khud chaak gareban hain

 

Yeh behre kuch sunne ke qabil nahin Toh chahte hain hum bhi gunge ho jaaye

Kya khaak panaah denge humein Apni basti mein yeh khud anjaan hain

 

Kaise hua ke aawaam ne milke awaaz uthai

Soch soch kar woh hote pareshan hain

 

Azaad to hum barso se hain lekin

Yeh desh aaj bhi kyun lagta zindaan hain

Jo Tu Hain …..

1-mughal-paintings

 

Jo  tu hain to sehra bhi gulzar hain
Tere bin gulshan bhi khaarzaar hain
Tujh mein kho kar khud ko paaya hain
Abhi to dil ko chain, sabr-o-qaraar hain
Jab tu tha, labon par kuch hasee si thi / (Jab tu tha labon par, kuch hasee si thi)
Tu gaya to hum roye zaar-zaar hain
Tujhe paa na sakaa meri qismat thi shaayad
Tujhe bhool jaana bas ke dushwar hain
Kya shauq-o-guroor lekar nikle the ghar se, bhool gaye the
Bisaat-e-dil mein hamesha apni haar hain
Koi kaam aasaan nahin , har raah mushkil hain
Mohabbat hain yeh, Ishq hain, Pyaar Hain
