kis takalluf-saeed shahidi

viTThal rao singing

کِس تکلّف ۔ سعید شہیدی

 

کِس تکلّف کِس اِہتمام سے ہم

دِل کو بہلا رہے ہیں شام سے ہم

 

مئے چھلکتی ہے رِند  پیاسے ہیں

پھر بھی خوش ہیں اِس اِنتظام سے ہم

 

جب بھی لیتا ہے کوئی نام تیرا

سر جھُکاتے ہیں احترام سے ہم

 

مِل گئی جب نگاہ ساقی سے

ہو گئے بے نیاز جام سے ہم

 

بجلیاں گِر رہی ہیں گلشن پر

لُٹ رہے ہیں کِس اہتمام سے ہم

 

اُس کا ہر اِک قصور کر کے معاف

مطمئن ہیں اِس اِنتقام سے ہم

 

دے نہیں سکتے آپ ساتھ جہاں

اب گزرتے ہیں اُس مقام سے ہم

 

مہرباں تھے سعید وہ کل تک

آج محروم ہیں سلام سے ہم

किस तकल्लुफ़ – सईद शहीदी

 

किस तकल्लुफ़ किस एहतेमाम से हम

दिल को बहला रहे हैं शाम से हम

 

मै छलकती है रिन्द प्यासे हैं

फिर भी ख़ुश हैं इस इन्तेज़ाम से हम

 

जब भी लेता है कोई नाम तेरा

सर झुकाते हैं एहतेराम से हम

 

बिजलियां गिर रही हैं गुलशन पर

लुट रहे हैं किस एहतेमाम से हम

 

उस का हर एक क़ुसूर कर के मो’आफ़

मुत्म’इन हैं इस इन्तेक़ाम से हम

 

दे नहीं सकते आप साथ जहां

अब गुज़रते हैं उस मक़ाम से हम

 

मेहरबां थे सईद वो कल तक

आज महरूम हैं सलाम से हम

dil ko bahla3 rahe haiN shaam se hum
1.refinement, finesse 2.arrangement 3.consoling
The poet/lover is waiting for her, knowing that she will not keep her promise. But he has made all arrangements to receive her. What finesse and what arrangements have I made, I am consoling my heart (that she will surely come) all evening.

phir bhi Khush haiN is intezaam4 se hum
1.wine 2.spills over 3.wine drinkers 4.administration, system, government
This could well be a statement about injustice of the order/system. There is plenty of wine, so much that it spills over, but the wine drinkers don’t get any and they go thirsty. We are still happy/satisfied with this system.

jab bhi leta hai koii naam tera
sar jhukaate haiN ehteraam1 se hum
1.respect, veneration
This could well be addressed to god (or the beloved). Whenever anyone mentions your name, I bow down in reverence.

mil gaii jab nigaah saaqi se
ho gaye be-nayaaz1 jaam2 se hum
1.unconcerned, not caring 2.cup/goblet (of wine)
The eyes of the beloved are intoxicating … all the poet/lover has to do is look into her eyes. Now that he has and is getting his fill of intoxication, he is no longer concerned about the goblet of wine.

bijliaaN gir rahi haiN gulshan1 par
luT2 rahe haiN kis ehtemaam3 se hum
1.garden 2.robbed, losing everything 3.arrangement
In urdu poetic tradition lightning strikes the garden and burns up the poet/lover’s nest/home. He loses everything. He is at some distance looking at the display of lightning strikes, like a fine fireworks display and is amused/pleased at the elaborate arrangement for his destruction.

us ka har ek qusoor1 kar ke mu’aaf2
mutma’in3 haiN is inteqaam4 se hum
1.transgression 2.pardon 3.satisfied 4.revenge
The beloved always breaks promises/ignores/insults the poet/lover. He is prepared to forgive all her transgressions and is satisfied with this kind of revenge.

de nahiN sakte aap saath jahaaN
ab guzarte1 haiN us maqaam2 se hum
1.pass through 2.place
The poet/lover is passing through a very difficult place/phase … perhaps one where he is neglected/ignored. The beloved cannot possibly go through such a condition.

1.benevolent, kind 2.deprived 3.greetings, recognition
Until recently, she was kind to me but today I am deprived even of basic greetings.
