Nida Fazli's Urdu ghazal: Poetry praising the mother

NIDA FAZLI
Nida Fazli is a renowned Urdu poet and lyricist, who has penned numerous songs for Bollywood movies. I have written a separate post on this blog about Nida Fazli and his contribution to literature.


You can also read his verses in Urdu, Hindi and English scripts at the website BestGhazals.Net here. But right now, here is an emotional poem titled Maa.n [Mother]. 


I hope you would like it. 



Besan ki sondhi roti pe khatti chatni jaisee maaN
Yaad aati hai chauka besan phukni jaisi maaN

Baan ki khurri khaat ke oopar har aahat par kaan dhare
Aadhi soi aadhi jaagi thaki dopahri jaisi maaN

Chiriyon ki chahkar goonje Radha Mohan Ali Ali
Murghe ki aawaz se jagtee ghar ki kundi jaisi maaN

Beewi, beti, bahan, padosan thodi see sab mein
Din bhar ek rassi ke oopar chalti natni see maaN

Baant ke apna chehra matha aankhein jaane kahaN gayee
Phate purane ek album mein chanchal shokh ladki jaisi maaN
