Dikhayi Diye Yun … The original ghazal

A lot of you people out there must have liked/loved this ghazal from the movie Bazaar – dikhayi diye yun ki bekhud kiya… humein aap se bhi judaa kar chale. A little while back, I found this complete version of the original version of this ghazal. Its so beautiful that I just thought I would post it here… (Video towards the end)


faqeeraana aa’ye sadaa kar chale
miyaaN Khush raho ham du’aa kar chale

jo tujh bin na jeene ko kehte the ham
so is ehd ko ab vafaa kar chale

shifaa apnee taqdeer hee meN na thee
k maqdoor tak to davaa kar chale

vo kyaa cheez hai aah jis ke li’ye
har ik cheez se dil uThaa kar chale

paRe aise asbaab paayaan e kaar
k naachaar yooN jee jalaa kar chale*

ko’yee naa-umeedana karte nigaah
so tum ham se moonh bhee chhupaa kar chale

bahut aarzoo thee galee kee tiree
so yaaN se lahoo meN nahaa kar chale

dikhaa’yee di’ye yooN k bai-Khud kiyaa
hameN aap se bhee judaa kar chale

jabeeN sijda karte hee karte ghisee*
haq e bandagee ham adaa kar chale

parishtish kee yaaN tak k ai but tujhe
nazar meN sabhoN kee Khudaa kar chale

jhaRe jis tarah* phool gul-ban se yooN
chaman meN jahaaN ke ham aa kar chale

na dekhaa Gham e daustaaN shukr hai
hameeN daaGh apnaa dikhaa kar chale

ga’yee umr dar band e fikr e Ghazal
so ye kaam aisaa baRaa kar chale

kaheN kyaa jo poochhe ko’yee ham se Mir
jahaaN meN tum aa’ye the kyaa kar chale



Needless to point out.. its Mir Taqi Mir at his best!

The Test That Should Not Have Been

Deep Outrage is an understatement of what I feel about this last test match between India and Australia.

I consider the third umpire’s behavior (by not ruling Symonds out) a grave violation of all that umpires stand for – integrity, committment and the power to observe. Something that viewers across the globe were able to see within 3 action replays, a third umpire could have taken 10 replays to consider. This man decided to rule incorrectly on the basis of 6 replays. Do we need such umpires in world cricket? Whats the point of using technology if its sold to such blind impostors!

I think Bucknor should be disgraced and thrown out of umprining panels. The man anyway has the longest reaction time amongst all umpires. He looks like he watches 15 replays in his head without needing any technology and makes all sorts of wrong decisions. Hallucinating pig!

It is said that your company does rub off on you. I saw that happening to Benson. Bucknor is the only phenomenon that can explain what Benson was seeing happen in India’s second innings. Or a bit of Marijuana!

I consider this Australian team’s behavior as that of a bunch of sports-people who at the top of their game will never be able to become great sportsmen, because they lack integrity and humility. Because they are shit scared of something. And yes – I think they are bitches who love barking integrity at the drop of a hat. Suckers dont like being paid back in their own currency. So they report people like Sreesanth and Harbhajan. But the blistering nincompoops do the same sledging all the time.

Its funny how Proctor, Benson and Bucknor don’t report English abuse, but were too sure about an abuse that Harbhajan would most likely have shot in hindi.

The scorecards and history books would say that India lost this match by 122 runs, when those who saw the game should agree that this Indian team could have probably won the match by 6wkts+. It takes great guts to do that, because there is a lot of money at stake too. But if its about pride, then Indian team should walk out of the third test. Let the history books not show that Indian team lost the series 3-0. All it would say is that the third test was abandoned because India decided to protest against the blatant incompetence of umpires and the unsporting attitude of the most successful team in International Cricket. Ozzies can beat the performances of the West Indian team of yesteryears, but never their greatness!
