watan ka rag

zamin hind ki rutba mein arsh-e-ala hai
ye home-rule ki ummid ka ujala hai
mrs-besant ne is aarzu ko pala hai
faqir qaum ke hain aur ye rag mala hai
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
watan-parast shahidon ki khak laenge
hum apni aankh ka surma use banaenge
gharib man ke liye dard-dukh uthaenge
yahi payam-e-wafa qaum ko sunaenge
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
hamare waste zanjir-o-tauq gahna hai
wafa ke shauq mein gandhi ne jis ko pahna hai
samajh liya ki hamein ranj-o-dard sahna hai
magar zaban se kahenge wahi jo kahna hai
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
pahnane wale agar bediyan pahnaenge
khushi se qaid ke goshe ko hum basaenge
jo santari dar-e-zindan ke bhi so jaenge
ye rag ga ke unhen nind se jagaenge
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
zaban ko band kiya hai ye ghafilon ko hai naz
zara ragon mein lahu ka bhi dekh len andaz
rahega jaan ke ham-rah dil ka soz-o-gudaz
chita se aaegi marne ke baad ye aawaz
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
yahi dua hai watan ke shikasta haalon ki
yahi umang jawani ke naunihaalon ki
jo rahnuma hai mohabbat pe mitne walon ki
hamein qasam hai usi ke saped baalon ki
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
yahi payam hai koyal ka bagh ke andar
isi hawa mein hai ganga ka zor aath-pahr
hilal-e-id ne di hai yahi dilon ko khabar
pukarta hai himala se abr uth uth kar
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle
base hue hain mohabbat se jin ki qaum ke ghar
watan ka pas hai un ko suhag se badh kar
jo shir-khar hain hindostan ke lakht-e-jigar
ye man ke dudh se likkha hai un ke sine par
talab fuzul hai kante ki phul ke badle
na len bahisht bhi hum home-rule ke badle

marsiya baal-ganga-dhar-tilak

maut ne raat ke parde mein kiya kaisa war
raushani-e-subh watan ki hai ki matam ka ghubar
marka sard hai soya hai watan ka sardar
tantana sher ka baqi nahin suna hai kachhaar
bekasi chhati hai taqdir phiri jati hai
qaum ke hath se talwar giri jati hai
uth gaya daulat-e-namus-e-watan ka waris
qaum marhum ke eazaz-e-kuhan ka waris
jaan-nisar-e-azali sher-e-deccan ka waris
peshwaon ke garajte hue ran ka waris
thi samai hui puna ki bahaar aankhon mein
aakhiri daur ka baqi tha khumar aankhon mein
maut mahrashtra ki thi ya teri marne ki khabar
murdani chha gai insan to kya patthar par
pattiyan jhuk gain murjha gae sahra ke shajar
rah gae josh mein bahte hue dariya tham kar
sard-o-shadab hawa ruk gai kohsaron ki
raushni ghat gai do-chaar ghadi taron ki
tha nigahban-e-watan dabadaba-e-am tera
na digen panw pe tha qaum ko paigham
dil raqibon ke larazte the ye tha kaam tera
nind se chaunk pade sun jo liya nam tera
yaad kar ke tujhe mazlum-e-watan roenge
banda-e-rasm-e-jafa chain se ab soenge
zindagi teri bahaar chamanistan-e-wafa
aabru tere liye qaum se paiman-e-wafa
aashiq-e-nam-e-watan kushta-e-arman-e-wafa
mard-e-maidan-e-wafa jism-e-wafa jaan-e-wafa
ho gai nazr-e-watan hasti-e-fani teri
na to piri rahi teri na jawani teri
auj-e-himmat pe raha teri wafa ka khurshed
maut ke khauf pe ghaalib rahi khidmat ki umed
ban gaya qaid ka farman bhi rahat ki nawed
hue tariki-e-zindan mein tere baal saped
phir raha hai meri nazron mein sarapa tera
aah-o-qaid-e-sitam aur budhapa tera
moajiza ashk-e-mohabbat ka dikhaya tu ne
ek qatra se ye tufan uthaya tu ne
mulk ko hasti-e-bedar banaya tu ne
jazba-e-qaum ko jadu ko jagaya tu ne
ek tadap aa gai sote hue armanon mein
bijliyan kaund gain qaum ke viranon mein
lash ko teri sanwaren na rafiqan-e-kuhan
ho jabin ke liye sandal ki jagah khak-e-watan
tar hua hai jo shahidon ke lahu se daman
den usi ka tujhe punjab ke mazlum kafan
shor-e-matam na ho jhankar ho zanjiron ki
chahiye qaum ke bhisham ko chita tiron ki

dard-e-dil

dard hai dil ke liye aur dil insan ke liye
tazgi barg-o-samar ki chamanistan ke liye
saz-e-ahang-e-junun tar-e-rag-e-jaan ke liye
be-khudi shauq ki be-sar-o-saman ke liye
kya kahun kaun hawa sar mein bhari rahti hai
be piye aath-pahr be-khabari rahti hai
na hun shair na wali hun na hun ejaz-e-bayan
bazm-e-qudrat mein hun taswir ki surat hairan
dil mein ek rang hai lafzon se jo hota hai ayan
lai ki muhtaj nahin hai meri fariyaad-o-fughan
shauq-e-shohrat hawas-e-garmi-e-bazar nahin
dil wo yusuf hai jise fikr-e-kharidar nahin
aur honge jinhen rahta hai muqaddar se gila
aur honge jinhen milta nahin mehnat ka sila
main ne jo ghaib ki sarkar se manga wo mila
jo aqida tha mere dil ka hilae na hila
kyun daraate hain abas gabru musalman mujh ko
kya mitaegi bhala gardish-e-dauran mujh ko
kya zamana pe khule be-khabari ka meri raaz
tair-e-fikr mein paida to ho itni parwaz
kyun tabiat ko na ho be-khudi-e-shauq pe naz
hazrat-e-abr ke qadmon pe hai ye farq-e-niyaz
fakhr hai mujh ko usi dar se sharaf pane ka
main sharabi hun usi rind ke maikhane ka
dil mera daulat-e-duniya ka talabgar nahin
ba-khuda khak-nashini se mujhe aar nahin
mast hun hubb-e-watan se koi mai-khwar nahin
mujh ko maghrib ki numaish se sarokar nahin
apne hi dil ka piyala piye madhosh hun main
jhuti pita nahin maghrib ki wo mai-nosh hun main
qaum ke dard se hun soz-e-wafa ki taswir
meri rag rag se hai paida tap-e-gham ki tasir
hai magar aaj nazar mein wo bahaar-e-dil-gir
kar diya dil ko farishton ne tarab ke taskhir
ye nasim-e-sahari aaj khabar lai hai
sal guzra mere gulshan mein bahaar aai hai
qaum mein aath baras se hai ye gulshan shadab
chehra-e-gul pe yahan pas-e-adab ki hai naqab
mere aaina-e-dil mein hai faqat is ka jawab
us ke kanton pe kiya main ne nisar apna shabab
kaam shabnam ka liya dida-e-tar se apne
main ne sincha hai use khun-e-jigar se apne
har baras rang pe aata hi gaya ye gulzar
phul tahzib ke khilte gae mitte gae khar
patti patti se hua rang-e-wafa ka izhaar
naujawanan-e-chaman ban gae taswir-e-bahaar
rang-e-gul dekh ke dil qaum ka diwana hua
jo tha bad-khwah-e-chaman sabza-e-begana hua
bu-e-nakhwat se nahin yan ke gulon ko sarokar
hai buzurgon ka adab in ki jawani ka singar
ilm-o-iman ki tarawat ka dilon mein hai guzar
dho gae chashma-e-akhlaq se sinon ke ghubar
rang dikhlati hai yun dil ki safa yaron mein
raushni subh ki jis tarah ho gulzaron mein
kis ko malum thi is gulshan-e-akhlaq ki rah
main ne phulon ko kiya rang-e-wafa se aagah
ab to is bagh pe hai sab ki mohabbat ki nigah
jo ki paude the shajar ho gae masha-allah
kya kahun rang-e-jawani mein jo is rag ke the
baghban ho gae gulchin jo mere bagh ke the
go ki baqi nahin kaifiyyat-e-tufan-e-shabab
phans ke janjal mein duniya ke ye qissa hua khwab
mast rahta hai magar ab bhi dil-e-khana-kharab
sham ko baith ke mahfil mein lundhata hun sharab
nashsha-e-ilm ki ummid pe jine wale
simat aate hain sar-e-sham se pine wale
aur hi rang pe hai aaj bahaar-e-gulshan
sair ke waste aae hain azizan-e-watan
farsh aankhen kiye baithe hain jawanan-e-chaman
dil mein tufan-e-tarab lab pe mohabbat ke sukhan
kaun hai aaj jo is bazm mein masrur nahin
ruh-e-sarshaar bhi khinch aae to kuchh dur nahin
magar afsos ye duniya hai maqam-e-ibrat
ranj ki yaad dilata hai khayal-e-rahat
aaj yaad aati hai un phulon ki mujh ko surat
khilte hi kar gae jo mere chaman se rehlat
chashm-e-bad-dur gulon ki ye bhari dali hai
chand phulon ki magar is mein jagah khali hai
ye wo gul the jinhen arbab-e-nazar ne roya
bhai ne bahnon ne madar ne pidar ne roya
khak rona tha jo is dida-e-tar ne roya
muddaton in ko mere qalb-o-jigar ne roya
dil ke kuchh dagh-e-mohabbat hain nishani un ki
bachpana dekh ke dekhi na jawani un ki
khair duniya mein kabhi soz hai aur kabhi hai saz
naunihaalan-e-chaman ki rahe ab umr daraaz
bhai se badh ke mujhe hain ye mere maya-naz
mere monis hain yahi aur yahi mere hamraaz
mar ke bhi ruh meri dil ki tarah shad rahe
main rahun ya na rahun ye chaman aabaad rahe

barsat

hai dilati yaad mai-noshi faza barsat ki
dil badha jati hai aa aa kar ghata barsat ki
bandh gai hai rahmat-e-haq se hawa barsat ki
nam khulne ka nahin leti ghata barsat ki
ug raha hai har taraf sabza dar-o-diwar par
intiha garmi ki hai aur ibtida barsat ki
dekhna sukhi hui shakhon mein bhi jaan aa gai
haq mein paudon ke masiha hai hawa barsat ki
hon sharik-e-bazm-e-mai zahid bhi tauba tod kar
jhumti qible se utthi hai ghata barsat ki
asl to ye hai mai-o-mashuq ka jab lutf hai
chandni ho raat ko din ko ghata barsat ki
wo papihon ki sadaen aur wo moron ka raqs
wo hawa-e-sarw aur kali ghata barsat ki
par utar jaenge bahr-e-gham se rind-e-baada-nosh
le udegi kashti-e-mai ko hawa barsat ki
khud-bakhud taza umangen josh par aane lagin
dil ko garmane lagi thandi hawa barsat ki
wo duaen mai-kashon ki aur wo lutf-e-intizar
hae kin nazon se chalti hai hawa barsat ki
main ye samjha abr ke rangin tukde dekh kar
takht pariyon ke ud lai hawa barsat ki
naz ho jis ko bahaar-e-misr-o-sham-o-rum par
sar-zamin-e-hind mein dekhe faza barsat ki
