Poet Balraj Komal's Urdu verse: Ek Aurat ایک عورت

Balraj Komal is a noted Urdu poet, who is based in Delhi. Komal, who was born in Sialkot in today's Pakistan, had migrated to India, after partition. He is considered a poet of modernist [jadid] stream.

Though he is essentially poet of Nazm, this famed poet has also written ghazals. His verses like 'Akeli' and 'Kaghaz ki Nao' are well-known. He has won several awards including the prestigious Sahitya Akademi award. Read his verse 'Ek Aurat' [A woman]

Voh ek thee
Hazaar suuratoN meN mere saamne
Tuluu' jab huii
To mera aasmaan ban gayee
Nai azeem lazzatoN ke darmiyaN
Main apne mustaqil muqaam se
Ufaq ki simt phailta chala gaya
Hisaar-e-marg o zindagi ko raundta chala gaya

Balraj Komal

Now read the same verse in Nastaliq script [Urdu]

وہ ایک تھی
ہزار صورتوں میں میرے سامنے
طلوع جب ہویٔ
تو میرا آسمان بن گیٔ
نی' عظیم لذتوں کےدرمیاں
میں اپنے مستقل مقام سے
افق کی سمت پھیلتا چلا گیا
حصار مرگ و زندگی کو روندتا چلا گیا

بلراج کومل
