Numaish-E-Aligarh

shafaq nazaa men le rahi thi sambhala

andhere ka gham kha raha tha ujala

sitaron ke rukh se naqab uth rahi thi

fazaon se mauj-e-shabab uth rahi thi

mai-e-zindagi jam-e-mai-nosh men thi

vo kaif-e-masarrat, vo lamhat-e-rangin

vo ehsas-e-masti vo jazbat-e-rangin

vo pur-kaif aalam vo dilkash nazare

vo jalvon ke bahte hue khushk dhare

vo namkin aghaz-e-shab allah allah

numaish ki vo tab-o-tab allah allah

vo bab-e-muzammil pe jashn-e-charaghan

falak par hon jaise sitare darakhshan

fazaon men gunje hue vo tarane

vo jan-bakhsh naghme vo pur-lutf gaane

vo har samt husn-o-latafat ki janen

vo arasta saaf suthri dukanen

kahin par hai nazzara karigari ka

kahin garm hotel hai peshavari ka

ba-qadr-e-sukun vo dilon ka bahalna

amiron gharibon ka yakja tahalna

numayan numayan vo yaran-e-college

vo ishrat-ba-daman javanan-e-college

koi tez-dasti o chusti pe nazan

koi sehhat o tandurusti pe nazan

koi husn ki jalva-rezi pe maail

koi shokh nazron ki tezi pe maail

idhar chashm-e-hairan ki nazzara-sazi

udhar husn vaalo ki jalva-tarazi

khiraman khiraman vo ham-joliyon men

nikalti hui mukhtalif toliyon men

naqabon men vo be-naqabi ka aalam

jo laata hai dil par kharabi ka aalam

kisi ka vo chehre se anchal uthana

kisi ka kisi se nigahen churana

kabhi yak-ba-yak chalte chalte thaharna

nigahon se jalvon ki islah karna

kabhi ik tavajjoh dukanon ki janib

kabhi ik nazar naujavanon ki janib

tamasha gharaz kamyab aa raha tha

numaish pe goya shabab aa raha tha

idhar ham bhi bazm-e-takhayyul saja kar

khade ho gae ek dukkan pe aa kar

nazar mil gai dafatan ik nazar se

dhadakne laga dil mohabbat ke Dar se

idhar to nazar se jabin-saiyan thiin

udhar se bhi kuchh himmat-afzaiyan thiin

khalish dil ki donon ko tadpa gai thi

mohabbat ki manzil qarib aa gai thi

khayalat men is taraf ik talatum

labon par udhar halka halka tabassum

nigahon se ahd-e-vafa ho raha tha

isharon se matlab ada ho raha tha

idhar ishq ke bam-o-dar saj rahe the

ghadi men jo dekha to nau baj rahe the

yakayak javan kuchh mire paas aae

jo the astinon pe bille lagae

kaha itni taklif farmaiyega

numaish se tashrif le jaiyega

gharaz chal diye ghar ko majbur ho kar

mohabbat ke jalvon se maamur ho kar

hui jaari rahi thi ajab halat-e-dil

koi chhin le jaise padhte men novel

ham is tarah bab-e-muzammil se nikle

lahu jaise tuute hue dil se nikle

bahar-e-hal ab bhi vahi hai numaish

naved-e-tarab de rahi hai numaish

vahi jashn hai aur vahi zindagi hai

magar jaise har shai men koi kami hai

are o nigahon pe chha jaane vaali

mire dil ko rah rah ke yaad aane vaali

tiri tarah jalva-numa hai numaish

tire husn ka aaina hai numaish

numaish men teri latafat hai pinhan

numaish men teri nazakat hai pinhan

nigahon ko nahaq tiri justuju hai

yaqinan numaish ke parde men tu hai
