एक नज़्म उनके नाम

रहते हैं इन्ही दरीचों* में हम भी
जो तुम देखते हो, वही देखते हैं

ये गुमनाम सडकें, ये बेनाम चेहरे
क्या तुम देखते हो, जो ये देखते हैं

कहने को तो है, सिर्फ बुतपरस्ती** ये
क्या तुम देखते हो, क्या हम देखते हैं

छोड़े कारीगर ने, निशाँ ऐसे गहरे
जहाँ देखते हैं, उसे देखते हैं

ये कहना गलत है उनकी आँखें नहीं हैं
जो वो देखते हैं, हम देखते हैं

कहीं हैं ग़ज़ल, खूब तुमने भी ग़ालिब
जो हम देखते हैं, हमीं देखते हैं

खिली उनके चेहरे पर मुस्कान ऐसे
ज्यों गंगा के तट पर, दीये देखते हैं

दरीचे - windows; बुतपरस्ती - idol worship

year's first verse dedicated to the love of my life. can't promise that i'll be able to translate this, but try i'll sure. love you all. and yes, may the new year be full of beauty and bliss :)

My favorite lines:
खिली उनके चेहरे पर मुस्कान ऐसे
ज्यों गंगा के तट पर, दीये देखते हैं
I hope I'm reading it correctly! Here's what it sounds like to me:
"The smile lit up her face as if, lamps on the banks of the Ganga".

Jo hum dekhte hai, kya tum dekhte ho?

Amazing as always. Love the way u write. Gaalib toh gaalib hai janab, jo woh dekhte hai sirf wohi dekhte hai. Par tum mein jo hum dekhte hai woh talent dekhte hai.

Likhte raho.

Cheers!
Srush
