Hangama Hai Kyun Barpa Thodi Si Jo Pi Li Hai

hangama hai kyuun barpa thodi si jo pi li hai

Daaka to nahin maara chori to nahin ki hai

barely have I sipped a bit, why should this uproar be

It’s not that I’ve commited theft or daylight robbery

na-tajraba-kari se vaaiz ki ye hain baten

is rang ko kya jaane puchho to kabhi pi hai

the preachers prattle can be to inexerience ascribed

how does he know the joys thereof, has he ever imbibed

us mai se nahin matlab dil jis se hai begana

maqsud hai us mai se dil hi men jo khinchti hai

that wine is of little use which causes loss of sense

I seek the wine that imbues the heart with love intense

ai shauq vahi mai pi ai hosh zara so ja

mehman-e-nazar is dam ek barq-e-tajalli hai

her heart wishes to torture, mine wants to tolerate

a strange heart she possesses, an odd one I do rate

vaan dil men ki sadme do yaan ji men ki sab sah lo

un ka bhi ajab dil hai mera bhi ajab ji hai

each speck does glitter with heavens brilliant glare

each breath proclaims if I, exist God too is there

har zarra chamakta hai anvar-e-ilahi se

har saans ye kahti hai ham hain to ḳhuda bhi hai

stains besmirch the sun, it’s nature’s miracle

Idols call me a heretic, it too must be God’s will

suraj men lage dhabba fitrat ke karishme hain

but ham ko kahen kafir allah ki marzi hai

taalim ka shor aisa tahzib ka ghul itna

barakat jo nahin hoti niyyat ki ḳharabi hai

sach kahte hain shaiḳh ‘akbar’ hai taat-e-haq lazim

haan tark-e-mai-o-shahid ye un ki buzurgi hai
