Naqsh Faryadi

Mirza Ghalib 1797 (Kala Mahal) – 1869 (Chandni Chowk, Delhi)



Urdu Script

نقش فریادی ہے کس کی شوخیِ تحریر کا
کاغذی ہے پیرہن ہر پیکرِ تصویر کا

کاو کاوِ سخت جانیہاۓ تنہائی نہ پوچھ
صبح کرنا شام کا لانا ہے جوۓ شیر کا

جذبۂ بے اختیارِ شوق دیکھا چاہیے
سینۂ شمشیر سے باہر ہے دم شمشیر کا

آگہی دامِ شنیدن جس قدر چاہے بچھائے
مدّعا عنقا ہے اپنے عالمِ تقریر کا

بسکہ ہوں غالب اسیری میں بھی آتش زیرِ پا
موۓ آتش دیدہ ہے حلقہ مری زنجیر کا

Devnagiri Script

नक़श फ़रयादी है किस की शोख़ी-ए तहरीर का
काग़ज़ी है पैरहन हर पैकर-ए तसवीर का

काव-काव-ए सख़त-जानीहा-ए तनहाई न पूछ
सुबह करना शाम का लाना है जू-ए शीर का

जज़बह-ए बे-इख़तियार-ए शौक़ देखा चाहिये
सीनह-ए शमशीर से बाहर है दम शमशीर का

आगही दाम-ए शुनीदन जिस क़दर चाहे बिछाए
मुदद`आ `अनक़ा है अपने `आलम-ए तक़रीर का

बसकि हूं ग़ालिब असीरी में भी आतिश ज़ेर-ए पा
मू-ए आतिश-दीदह है हलक़ह मिरी ज़नजीर का

English Transcript

Naqsh faryaadi hai kiski shaukhi-e tehreer ka
Kagazi hai pairahan har paikar-e tasveer ka

Kaay-kaay-e-sakht-janeeha-e tanhai na poochh
Subha karna shaam ka lana hai juu-e-sheer ka

Jazbah-e-bey-ikhtiyaar-e shouk deykha chahiye
Sinah-e shamseer sey baahar hai dum shamsheer ka

Aagahee daam-e shunidan jis qadar chaahey bichhaaye
Mudad aa anka hai apney aalam-e takreer ka

Baski hoon Ghalib aseeri mein bhi aatish zer-e pa
Muu-e aatish-deedah hai halkah meri zanjeer ka
