तलाश: Nazm

Chrysanthemum flower ghazal

 

 

परत दर परत उधेड़ा खुद को
पंखुड़ियों की तरह तमाम हो गई

 

कागज़ पे लिखे हर्फ़ों में ढूँढा ख़ुद को
मग़र कहानी मेरी आज सरेआम हो गई

 

कुछ तो बात थी ज़माने की तानाकशी में
ख़ुद को ढूंढने की कोशिश सुबहो-शाम हो गई

 

बस दो ही क़दम तो चली तुम्हारे साथ
शुरुआत ही मेरी अंजाम हो गई

 

तुम्हें अख़बारों की सुर्खियाँ देकर
मैं तो ख़ुद-ब-ख़ुद ग़ुमनाम हो गई!

Parat dar parat udheda khud ko
Pankhudiyon ki tarah tamam ho gayee

 

Kagaz pe likhe harfon mein dhoondha khud ko
Magar kahani meri aaj sare-aam ho gayee.

 

Kutch to baat thi zamane ki tanakashi mein
Khud ko dhoondhne ki koshish subho-shaam ho gayee

 

Bas do hi kadam to chali tumhare saath
Shuruaat hi meri anjaam ho gayee

 

Tumhe akhbaaron ki surkhiyan deker
Main to khud-ba-khud gumnaam ho gayee

  • Thanks for letting me know! I’ve to learn and practice before writing the next one. 🙂

    • Rakesh Pandey

      Na jana ki koi yaha jee raha hai,
      Badi der ki, meherbaan aate aate! 😀

      Sher 👆. First misra is mine. Second is anonymous.

      You are so humble, you know? You are I, in fact. Zyada hoshiyari nahi dikhate apan, in new fields. Saw that Colgate fiasco? 😀

      Love you for that humility, ma’am!

      Always loved humble and modest guys. Being a Taurus, I’m none. I love attention.

      Unfortunately, no one cares! 🙁

      Write another nazm? On the way life twists you and brings you back where you started? :D,

      I resemble my maverick grandpa… Waise. 😀

  • bahut khoob , waah!

  • इश्क़ में खुद को इतना डुबो दिया भूल गयी अंजाम-ज़िन्दगी क्या होगा – खूबसूरत ग़ज़ल….

    • Wow! Such beautiful lines. Thank you so much Sunaina. 🙂

  • Rakesh Pandey

    It’s awesome! Read you after a long time and the beauty is still there! Loved the lines ‘Tumhe akhbaar… ‘ Reminded me of Gulzar. However, I think, it’s technically a Nazm and not a ghazal. But, jo bhi hai, badi pyari hai! Loved it!

    • Really? I didn’t know. Main to yoon hi likh deti hoon kutch bhi. without even knowing any technical details. All I know that the lines should rhyme. From next time onwards I’ll ask details from you and then publish. At least I should be benefited having a well versed reader like you. So be ready for that. 🙂

      Thank you so much Rakeshji. Apko acchi lagi, that’s enough for me. 🙂

      • Edited the title from Ghazal to Nazam. Thanks once again. 🙂

  • Amit Agarwal

    उम्दा ग़ज़ल !
    सभी पाँचों शेर भावपूर्ण, और नाज़ुक़ अहसास से लबालब!

  • Jyotirmoy Sarkar

    Very nice , Specially loved the 4th stanza.

  • Bohot khoob likhi hai Sangeeta, dil chhu gayi 🙂
