What is Ghazal?

Ghazal is a short poem rarely of more than a dozen couplets in the same metre. It always opens with a rhyming couplet called matla. The rhyme of the opening couplet is repeated at the end of second line in each succeeding verse, so that the rhyming pattern may be represented as AA, BA, CA, DA, and so on. In addition to the restriction of rhyme, the ghazal also observes the convention of radif. Radif demands that a portion of the first line -- comprising not more than two or three words -- immediately preceding the rhyme-word at the end, should rhyme with its counterpart in the second line of the opening couplet, and afterwards alternately throughout the poem. The opening couplet of the ghazal is always a representative couplet: it sets the mood and tone of the poem and prepares us for its proper appreciation. The last couplet of the ghazal called makta often includes the pen-name of the poet, and is more personal than general in its tone and intent. Here the poet may express his own state of mind, or describe his religious faith, or pray for his beloved, or indulge in poetic self-praise. The different couplets of the ghazal are not bound by the unity and consistency of thought. Each couplet is a self-sufficient unit, detachable and quotable, generally containing the complete expression of an idea.

timi ke gayau

timi ke gayau, jeevan lee gayau
meraa sapanaa kaa rangaharu, har khushee lee gayau.

dier gayau tadpaahat, jagaaun laai raatabhar
mero muskaraaunu, mero hanso lee gayau.

dude aankhaa, chhaayo andhyaaro pan
gayau ta gayau diyo baat roshanee lee gayau.

lee gayau mero rang baat suwaas timi
meraa dinaharu baat samay lee gayau.

basee rahe aaune baato herer timro
mero parkhaai baat milan lee gayau.

yasaree bitdai chhan timi binaa meraa yee dinaharu
meraa harek palaharu baat samayako dhaaraa lee gayau.

We can no longer have everything we want, we can be more than we imagined....!!

Nice one Shivani ji. Mr Shahi, you are a luck husband !! Wish you both all the happiness.

Bhagya kohi yasari pani liera aauchhan
Jun ek arka bina Ek pal pani katna saktainan
Uff, malai pani kohi yastai maya garne hunthyo,
Mayaa ta chhodau, mero shahar nai chhodera gaye uni
Kam se kam ek nazar herne
Fursat nikale ko bhaye pani ta hunthyo.

Even though we know how far apart we are, it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star. And the night wind start to sing a lonesome lullaby, it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky.

Thanks Naaz ji.

Jeevan saathi lamo samaya samma tadha rahada din haru katna dherai apthyaro parchha. This distance is too much and very hard to me to handling myself.

Un lai veeda garda thaah thiyena
Ki yasari tadpinu pani parla,
Ghar ko purai sansaar liera gaye
Ghar chhodera jane wala !!

We can no longer have everything we want, we can be more than we imagined....!!

The Ghazal was very nice.

But take care yourself, at least, at this time. Just relax and be happy. Later, all goes fine as before.


REGARDS,

Nasamjhanu ab malai hridayama prit chhaina
timro lagi lekhnu parne banki kunai geet chhain!

nabol bho saphaima timilai ma chineko chhu
sangai marne sangai bachne duniyako rit chhaina!

timi hansi khushi banch ma aansuma dube pani
yudda hamro chalne nai chhha tara haar jit chaain!

dekhe maile chokho maya bhogisake chotharu
jhutho maya lagayer kasaiko ni hit chhain!!

Jadou!
