KEE PUCHHADE HO HAAL FAQIIRAAN DAA

An all time favourite of mine from Shiv Kumar Batalvi :-

KEE PUCHHADE HO HAAL FAQIIRAAN DAA

Kee puchhade ho haal faqiraan daa Saadha nadiyon vichhre niiraan daa
Saadhaa hanj de juunein aayaan daa Saadhaa dil jalyaan dilgiiraan daa

Eh jaanadeyaan kuj shokh jahe rangaan daa hii naan tasviiraan hai
Jad huT gaye assii ishqe dii mul kar baiThe tasviiraan daa

Saanun lakhaan daa tan taan labh gayaa par ik daa man vii naan milyaa
kya likhyaa kise mukaddar see hathaan diyaan chaar lakiiraan daa

Taqdiir taan saaDhii saukan see tadbiiraan saathon naa hoyiiyan
Naan Jhung chhutyaa naan kan paaTe jhund lang gayaa inj Hiiraan daa

Main daanashwaraan sunindyaan sang kayii waarii uchchi bol gayaa,
Kuj maan sii saahnuun ishke daa, kuj daawaa wii sii piiRhaan daa.

Tuun khud noon aaakal kehndaa hain main khud noon aashak dasdaa haan
Eh lokaan te assi chhaD dayiiye kinoon maan nein dende Piiraan daa

Mere giit vii lok suninde nein, naale kaafir aakh sadinde nein
maiN dard nuun kaabaa kah baiThaa, rab naan rakh baiThaa piiRhaan daa

Haal Faqiraan daa. Suno, Shiv dii aapnii hii aawaaz wich :-

Kii Puchhde Ho Haal Faqiraan Daa
