Nida Fazli and Ghazals

I am mad about Ghazals to the extend that I write some myself. There are tons of very high quality songs with soul stiring lyrical values. Nida Fazli and Gulzar are best at it. I was inspired to listen to Ghazal by hearing Nida Fazli’s song “Garaj Baras pyasi dharti ko phir pani de moula” (sung by Jagjit Singh).

I was generally doing some shareaza lookup for ghazals and hit upon this amazing ghazal written by Nida Fazli (sung by Jagjit and Chitra).

Duniya Jise Kehte hai, jaado ka khilona hai
milgaaye to mitti hai, khogaaye to sona hai

Truly Inspiring!

By the way, here is the most recent ghazal I wrote:

Kyun mere dil ko jala rahe hain yeh log
Zakhm bhare dil ko sata rahe hein yeh log

Usko bhulane ki kosish mein khud ko bhul gaya
Mere ghar ka pata kyun batate hein mujhe yeh log

Mekhane mein bhi hum ab hum nahi rahe
Uski kasam na jane kyoun dilate hein yeh log

Kabhi hasaate hein kabhi rulate hein yeh log
Mere khuda bade khudgarz hain tere yeh log

I was challanged to write this on spot in office when one of my colleague gave me the first line to begin.

  4. Hi Shalin,

    Good to see that you like ghazals and you write yourself as well.

    Let me tell you that i am also a major time fan of ghazals…I almost like all of’em….nida fazli, gulzar, bashir badr n many of them….but the one whom i can call THE GOD of ghazal writing is MIRZA GHALIB (i wrote “is” because he is still alive in the hearts of ghazal fans).

    I have a blog on indiatimes and i expect ur visit and comments. http://o3.indiatimes.com/ghazals

    Thanks

  7. bahut khub.

    One from me:

    khusbu aati hai mere kafan se phoolon ke
    chaman bhi chal raha hai kiun, janaze ke saath-2
    hur gaam (step) pur nizat milta hai mere kalib(body) ko
    yeh allam(zamana) ro raha hai kiun daraze-dard ke saath-2
