• Aadatan Tumne Kar Diye Vaade,<br/>
Aadatan Humne Aitbaar Kiya;<br/> 
Teri Raahon Mein Har Baar Rukkar,<br/>
Humne Apna Hi Intezaar Kiya!
    Aadatan Tumne Kar Diye Vaade,
    Aadatan Humne Aitbaar Kiya;
    Teri Raahon Mein Har Baar Rukkar,
    Humne Apna Hi Intezaar Kiya!

  • Zindagi Ka Lamha Bahut Chhota Sa Hai;<br/>
Kal Ki Koi Buniyad Nahi Hai Aur Aane Wala Kal Sirf Sapne Mein Hai!
    Zindagi Ka Lamha Bahut Chhota Sa Hai;
    Kal Ki Koi Buniyad Nahi Hai Aur Aane Wala Kal Sirf Sapne Mein Hai!

  • Waqt Rehta Nahi Kahin Tik Kar;<br />
Aadat Is Kee Bhi Aadmii Si Hai!
    Waqt Rehta Nahi Kahin Tik Kar;
    Aadat Is Kee Bhi Aadmii Si Hai!

  • Kaayi Si Jam Gayi Hai Aankhon Par;<br />
Sara Manzar Hara Sa Rehta Hai;<br />
Sehma Sehma Daraa Sa Rehta Hai;<br />
Jaane Kyon Dil Bhara Sa Rehta Hai!
    Kaayi Si Jam Gayi Hai Aankhon Par;
    Sara Manzar Hara Sa Rehta Hai;
    Sehma Sehma Daraa Sa Rehta Hai;
    Jaane Kyon Dil Bhara Sa Rehta Hai!

  • Haath Chhute Bhi Toh

    Haath Chhute Bhi Toh Rishte Nahi Chhoda Karte;
    Waqt Ki Shaakh Se Lamhe Nahi Toda Karte;

    Jiski Aawaaz Mein Silwat Ho Nigahon Mein Shikan;
    Aisi Tasveer Ke Tukade Nahi Joda Karte;

    Shahad Jeene Ka Mila Karta Hai Thoda Thoda;
    Jaane Waalon Ke Liye Dil Nahi Thoda Karte;

    Lag Ke Sahil Se Jo Behta Hai, Use Behane Do;
    Aise Dariya Ka Kabhi Rukh Nahi Moda Karte;

    Jaagne Par Bhi Nahin Aankh Se Girti Kirchein;
    Iss Tarah Khawabon Se Aankhein Nahin Phodaa Karte;

    Ja Ke Kohsar Se Sar Maaro Ki Aavwaz To Ho;
    Khasta Deewaron Se Maatha Nahin Phodaa Karte!
    ~ Gulzar
  • Aap Ke Baad Yeh Mehsoos Hua Hai Humko;
    Jeena Mushkil Nahi Aur Marna Bhi Dushwaar Nahi!

  • Ek Purana Mausam Lauta

    Ek Purana Mausam Lauta, Yaad Bhari Purvaee Bhi;
    Aisa To Kam Hi Hota Hai, Vo Bhi Ho Tanhaee Bhi;

    Yaadon Kee Bauchharon Se, Jab Palke Bhigane Lagati Hai;
    Kitni Saundhi Lagti Hain Tab, Mazee Kee Rusvaii Bhi;

    Do Do Shaklen Dikhti Hain, Is Bahake Se Aaeene Mein;
    Mere Sath Chala Aaya Hai, Aapaka Ek Saudii Bhi;

    Khamoshi Ka Hasil Bhi, Ik Lambi Si Khamoshi Hai;
    Unkee Baat Suni Bhi Hamne, Apni Baat Sunaee Bhi!

    Translation:
    Purvaee: Easterly Breeze
    Maazi - Past, Yore
    Rusvaii - Disgrace, Humiliation
    Saudaii - Crazy, One Who Loves Deeply, Insane, In A Frenzy

  • Dil Dhoondhta Hai, Phir Wahee

    Dil Dhoondhta Hai, Fir Wahee Furasat Ke Raat Din;
    Baithhe Rahe Tasavvur-E-Jaanaa Kiye Huye;

    Jaadon Kee Narm Dhoop Aur, Aangan Mein Let Kar;
    Aankhon Pe Khinch Kar Tere, Aanchal Ke Saaye Ko;

    Aaundhe Pade Rahe Kabhee, Karawat Liye Huye;
    Barfilee Sardiyon Mein, Kisi Bhee Pahaad Par;

    Waadee Mein Gunjatee Huyee, Khaamoshiyaan Soone;
    Aankhon Mein Bheege Bheege Se, Lamhe Liye Huye;

    Yaa Gamreeyon Kee Raat Jo Poorawaaeeyaan Chale;
    Thhandee Safed Chaadaro Pe Jaage Der Tak;
    Taaron Ko Dekhate Rahe Chhat Par Pade Huye!

    Translation:

    Tasavvur - Contemplation
