cricket match

bezar ho gae the jo shaer hayat se
cricket ka match khel liya shaeraat se
waqif na the jo dosto! aurat ki zat se
chauke laga rahe the khayalon mein raat se
aai jo subh sham ke naqshe bigad gae
sarron se hum gharibon ke stump ukhad gae
naz-o-ada o husn ne jadu jaga diye
pahle to opner ke hi chhake chhuda diye
one-down pe jo aae to stump uda diye
rah-e-farar ke bhi to raste bhula diye
go catch wery-low tha magar be-dhadak liya
ek mohtaram ko ek ne gali mein lapak liya
kya kya bayan kijiye ek ek ka bankpan
jalwa-figan zamin pe thi taron ki anjuman
husn-o-shabab o ishq se bharpur har badan
shaer pawilion mein the pahne hue kafan
jitni thin beautiful wo slip par gali pe thin
jitni thin ower-age sabhi baundary pe thin
pariyon ke jis tarah se pare koh-qaf par
ek long-on par thi to ek long-off par
ek thi cower mein ek hasina mid-off par
jo short-pich thi gend wo aati thi naf par
thahre na wo crease pe jo the bade bade
mujh jaise tim-tam to wicketon pe phat pade
wo lal gend phul ho jaise gulab ka
jis tarah dast-e-naz mein saghar sharab ka
saya hawa mein nachta tha aaftab ka
bumper mein sara zor tha husn-o-shabab ka
aise bhi apne ishq ka maidan banate the
empire har apeal par ungli uthate the
jab ball phenkti thi wo gesu sanwar ke
nazdik aur hote the haalat haar ke
kahte the match dekhne wale pukar ke
ustad ja rahe hain shab-e-gham guzar ke
ustad kah rahe the ki phatkar match par
do do jhapat rahi hain sharifon ke catch par

cricket aur mushaira

mushaire ka bhi tafrih aim hota hai
mushaire mein bhi cricket ka game hota hai
wahan jo log khiladi hain wo yahan shaer
yahan jo sadr-nashin hai wahan hai empire
wahan pe shart ki ho zor-e-bazu-e-mahmud
yahan ye qaid ki ho lahn-e-hazrat-e-daood
wahan tamaddun-e-mashriq ki maut ka gham hai
yahan adab ke janaza pe shor-e-matam hai
wahan riyaz-e-musalsal se kaam chalta hai
yahan gale ke sahaare kalam chalta hai
wahan bhi khel mein no-ball ho to faul hai
yahan bhi sher mein ihmal ho to faul hai
wahan hai lbw yahan ye chakkar hai
ki andalib muannas hai ya muzakkar hai
wahan bhi sirf muqaddar ka khel hota hai
jo unlucky hai yahan bhi wo fail hota hai
wahan hai ek hi kaptan puri team ki jaan
yahan har ek player bajae khud kaptan
yahan kuchh aise bhi kaptan pae jate hain
jo ran banate nahin hit lagae jate hain
wahan jo log anadi hain waqt katte hain
yahan bhi kuchh mutashaer dimagh chatte hain
hua kare agar score us ka zero hai
yahan jo shakhs phisaddi hai wo bhi hero hai
nigah jin ki pahunchti hai hashw o ita par
bana diya hai yahan un ko back stoper
adab-nawaz pe shout yahan bhi hote hain
ye bad-nasib ran-out yahan bhi hote hain
'hanif' bhi koi bogus cricketer to nahin
magar 'asar' se ziyaada free-hiter to nahin
baja hai 'fazl' ke sixer pe marhaba kahna
magar 'firaq' ki baundary ka kya kahna
mere khayal ko ahl-e-nazar karenge catch
mushaira bhi hai ek tarah ka cricket match

adib ki mahbuba

tumhaari ulfat mein harmonium pe 'mir' ki ghazlen ga raha hun
bahattar in mein chhupe hain nashtar jo sab ke sab aazma raha hun
bahut dinon se tumhaare jalwe 'khadija-mastur' ho gae hain
hai shukr-e-bari ki samne apne aaj phir tum ko pa raha hun
lihaf 'ismat' ka odh kar tum fasane 'manto' ke padh rahi ho
pahan ke 'bedi' ka garm coat aaj tum se aankhen mila raha hun
tumhaare ghar 'nun-mim-rashid' ka le ke aaya sifarshi khat
magar tajjub hai phir bhi tum se nahin main kuchh 'faiz' pa raha hun
bahut hai sidhi si baat meri na jaane tum kyun nahin samajhtin
qasam khuda ki kalam-e-'ghaalib' nahin main tum ko suna raha hun
tumhaari zulf-e-siyah pe tanqid kis se likhwaun tum hi bolo
'shri-ibaadat-barelwi' ko main tar de kar bula raha hun
main tum pe hun 'jaan-nisar-akhtar' qasam hai 'munshi-fida-ali' ki
bahut dinon se main tum pe 'sahir' se jadu tone kara raha hun
agar ho tum 'hajara' to phir mujh se mil ke 'masrur' kyun nahin ho
tumhaare aage 'opendr-nath-ashk' ban ke aansu baha raha hun
hasin ho zehra-jamal ho tum mujhe sata kar nihaal ho tum
tumhaare ye zulm 'qurrat-ul-ain' ko batane main ja raha hun
meri mohabbat ki dastan sun ke ro pade 'josh-malsiyani'
sukha ke pankhe se un ke aansu abhi wahan se main aa raha hun
meri tabahi pe chhap denge nuqush ka ek khas number
'tufail-sahab' ke pas sare musawwade le ke ja raha hun
'wazir-agha' pathan hain sath sath yaron ke yar bhi hain
pakad ke wo tum ko pit denge main kal unhen sath la raha hun
'hakim-yusuf-ali' ne jab meri nabz dekhi to ro ke bole
'jigar' hai zakhmi tabah gurde ye baat tum se chhupa raha hun
malihabaad aaj ja raha hun main 'josh' laun ki aam laun
hain donon chizen wahan ki achchhi main laun kya tilmila raha hun
jo hukm do 'wajida-tabassum' ka kuchh tabassum main tum ko la dun
tumhaare honton pe gham ki maujon ko dekh kar tilmila raha hun
fasana-e-ishq mukhtasar hai qasam khuda ki na bor hona
'firaq-gorakhpuri' ki ghazlen nahin main tum ko suna raha hun
meri mohabbat ki dastan ko gadhe ki mat sarguzisht samjho
main 'kirshn-chandr' nahin hun zalim yaqin tum ko dila raha hun
pilao aankhon se taki mujh ko kuchh 'al-e-ahmad-surur' aae
bahut hain gham mujh ko aashiqi ke bina piye dagmaga raha hun
