La-Makan-O-Makan Bolta Hai

lā-makāñ-o-makāñ boltā hai

jaise saarā jahān boltā hai

kyoñ haiñ ahl-e-zabān mohr-ba-lab

kyā koī be-zabān boltā hai

koī suntā nahīñ kisī kī har ik

apnī apnī zabān boltā hai

laakh gard-e-safar rahe ḳhāmosh

rahguzar kā nishān boltā hai

saarī mahfil dhuāñ dhuāñ sī huī

kaun sho.ala-bayān boltā hai

ḳhushk dhartī bhī chup nahīñ rahtī

jab kabhī āsmān boltā hai

vahm hai ik umīd-e-sub.h-e-tarab

mujh se merā gumān boltā hai

āsmāñ tak hai gosh-bar-āvāz

kaun ye darmiyān boltā hai

rañg-e-ruḳh be-zabāñ sahī ‘at.har’

dil kā hai tarjumān boltā hai
