guftagu – sardar jafri

Recitation “tarannum” by sardar jafri song by seema saigal

گفتگو بند نہ ہو – علی سردار جعفری
ہند۔پاک دوستی كے نام

 

گفتگو بند نہ ہو
بات سے بات چلے
صبح تک شامِ ملاقات چلے
ہم پہ ہنستی ہوئی یہ تاروں بھری رات چلے

 

ہوں جو الفاظ كے ہاتھوں میں  ہیں سنگِ دُشنام
طنز چھلکائے تو  چھلکایا کرے زہر كے جام
تیکھی نظریں ہوں ترش ابروئے خمدار رہیں
بن پڑے جیسے بھی دِل سینوں میں  بیدار رہیں
بےبسی حرف کو زنجیر  بہ پا کر نہ سکے
کوئی قاتل ہو مگر قتلِ نوا کر نہ سکے

 

صبح تک ڈھل كے کوئی حرفِ وفا آئیگا
عشق آئیگا بصد لغزشِ پا آئیگا
نظریں جھک جائینگی ، دِل دھڑکیں گے لب کانپیں گے
خامشی بوسۂ لب بن كے مہک جائے گی
صرف غنچوں كے چٹکنے کی صدا آئے گی

 

اور پِھر حرف و نوا کی نہ ضرورت ہوگی
چشم و ابرو كے اِشاروں میں محبّت ہوگی
نفرت اُٹھ جائیگی مہمان مروّت ہوگی

 

ہاتھ میں ہاتھ لئے سارا جہاں ساتھ لئے
تحفۂ  درد لئے  پیار کی سوغات لئے
ریگزاروں سے عداوت كے گزر جائیں گے
خوں كے دریاؤں سے ہم پار اُتَر جائیں گے

 

گفتگو بند نہ ہو
بات سے بات چلے
صبح تک شامِ ملاقات چلے
ہم پہ ہنستی ہوئی یہ تاروں بھری رات چلے

गुफ़्तगू बंद ना हो – अली सरदार जाफ़्री

हिंद-पाक दोस्ती के नाम

 

गुफ़्तगू बंद नो हो

बात से बात चले

सुबह तक शाम-ए मुलाक़ात चले

हम पे हंसती हुई ये तारौं भरी रात चले

 

हों जो अल्फ़ाज़ के हाथौं में हैं संग-ए दुशनाम

तंज़ छलकाए तो छलकाया करे ज़हर के जाम

तीखी नज़रें हों तुर्श अबरू-ए ख़म्दार रहें

बन पड़े जैसे भी दिल सीनों में बेदार रहें

बेबसी हरफ़ को ज़ंजीर बा-पा कर ना सके

कोइ क़ातिल हो मगर क़त्ल-ए नवा कर ना सके

 

सुबह तक ढल के कोई हरफ़-ए वफ़ा आएगा

इश्क़ आएगा बा-सद लग़्ज़िश-ए पा आएगा

नज़रें झुक जाऐंगी, दिल धड़केंगे लब कांपेंगे

ख़ामोशी बोसा-ए लब बन के महक जाएगी

सिर्फ़ ग़ुन्चों के चिटक्ने की सदा आएगी

 

और फिर हरफ़ ओ नवा की ना ज़रूरत होगी

चश्म ओ अबरू के इशारौं में मोहब्बत होगी

नफ़रत उठ जाएगी मेहमान मुरव्वत होगी

 

हाथ में हाथ लिए सारा जहां साथ लिए

तोहफ़ा-ए दर्द लिए प्यार की सौग़ात लिए

रेगज़ारों से अदावत के गुज़र जाऐंगे

ख़ुन् के दरियाओं से हम पार उतर जाऐंगे

 

गुफ़्तगू बंद नो हो

बात से बात चले

सुबह तक शाम-ए मुलाक़ात चले

हम पे हंसती हुई ये तारौं भरी रात चले

Whatever brickbats of abuse we have, let them be hurled with words (only). Let sarcasm fill the cup of poison to overflowing. Let arched eyebrows show all the bitterness they can, but let the hearts in our bosom throb with love, however we can make them do it. Let not feelings of helplessness put chains on the feet of Talk. And if there is a killer, let him not kill our voices.

By morning some word of love will be cast into shape. Love will come even if on stumbling/unsteady feet. Eyes will be lowered, hearts will throb, lips will tremble. Silence will blossom into fragrance like a kiss on the lips. Only the sound of blooming buds will be heard. In poetic imagination when a flower blooms and the petals unfold, there is supposed to be a gentle sound of unfurling – chiTakna.
