Apni Haqueeqat: My Reality

NS Rajan: नि सु राजन

 

Apni haqeeqat hum kahaan pehchante hain

Kis muqaam pe pahunche hai, kya jante hain

 

Mehfil mein dukh ke afsane kahe jao

Tere haal pe log ab hasney waley hain

 

Mere dil ke raaz aap bhala kyon jaane

Khali mera daman tere labrez paimaane hain

 

Do chaar aansoo hi bahaake jaana tum

Apni khushk aankhon mein ab weerane hain

 

Haseen jalwa mil bhi jayega ek din

Jaane do yaar, sab kehne ki baaten hain

 

Usko bhoolne pahunche maikade mein hum

Sharaab na mili , jaam mein aansoo payen hain

 

Taare doob chale hain, ab to bas Nisura

Kyaa raah dekhein kya naye bahaane hain

 

 

अपनी  हकीकत  हम  कहाँ  पहचानते  हैं 

किस  मुकाम  पे  पहुंचे  हैं , क्या  जानते  हैं 

 

महफ़िल  में  दुःख  के  अफसाने  कहे  जाओ 

तेरे  हाल  पे  लोग  अब  हसने  वाले  हैं 

 

मेरे  दिल  के  राज़  आप  भला  क्यों  जाने 

खली  मेरा  दामन  तेरे  लबरेज़  पैमाने  हैं 

 

दो  चार  आंसू  ही  बहाके  जाना  तुम 

अपनी  खुश्क  आँखों  में  अब  वीराने  हैं 

 

हसीं  जलवा  मिल  भी  जायेगा  एक  दिन 

जाने  दो  यार , सब  कहने  की  बातें  हैं 

 

उसको  भूलने  पहुंचे  मैकदे  में  हम 

शराब  न  मिली  , जाम  में  आंसू  पायें  हैं 

 

तारे  डूब  चले  हैं , अब  तो  बस  निसुरा 

क्या  राह  देखें  क्या  नए  बहाने  हैं 

 

Have no clue what my destination is

Where have I reached what am I to say

 

If you keep sharing your tearful tale of woe

Rest assured people are going to laugh at you

 

How would you know  my heart’s sad  secret

My bowl is empty and your glass so brimful

 

Do shed a few drops of tears for me

My eyes, so dry, are the desert itself

 

Beauteous delight will one day be mine

Let hopes be begone , why air your thoughts

 

I reached the tavern hoping to forget my love

Where is the wine, my glass is only  full of tears

 

Stars too are departing now,  end this Nisura

Why  do you still await, any  new excuses to proffer?
