    Varna Royega Ki Jannat Mein Bhi Ruswayi Hui!
  • Talash Hai Ek Aise Shakhs Kee,
    Jo Aankhon Mein Us Waqt Dard Dekh Sake;
    Jab Sab Log Mujse Khete Hain,
    Kya Yaar Hamesha Hansti Rehti Ho!

    Parda-e-Shab = Veil of night

    Maine Maana Ki Kuch Nahi Ghalib;
    Muft Haath Aaye To Bura Kya Hai!

    I sacrifice my life for you,
    I never knew what prayer is.
    I concede that Ghalib is nothing,
    If it comes free, what's the harm in it?
    ~ Mirza Ghalib
