har ek rang ka faqir...

پھنچا حضور شاہ ہر اک رنگ کا فقیر
پہنچا نہیں جو تھا وہی پہنچا ہوا فقیر

poNhchaa huzuur-e-shaah har ek rang ka faqiir
poNhchaa nahiiN jo...thaa vahii poNhchaa huaa faqiir

पहुंचा हुज़ूर-ए-शाह हर एक रंग का फ़क़ीर
पहुंचा नहीं जो था वही पहुंचा हुआ फ़क़ीर
(शुजा)

Shuja'uddin Sajid alias Shuja Khawar। Former DCP Delhi, he quit Indian Police Service (IPS) as he felt himself misfit in the police. This stylish Delhi poet had penned his famous poem on Taj Mahal at a young age. He was bed-ridden for a long time due to serious illness and is back to business ie Shaa'eri.

Read his ghazal in Urdu, Hindi and Roman scripts at Best Ghazals.

Very nice .. but exacly which taj mahal nazm you are talking about?

indscribe said...

Many poets have written on Taj from Mehroom to Sahir. Shuja's poem is nice, I read it long back. Hope to find it soon and put it here.

Indscribe
I am waiting to hear your views on the recent bomb blasts - another sad thing to have happened in these unruly times.

What struck me was the refusal of many victims to receive the government cash assistance? I foun that quite interesting. The argument that they wanted security and not ad-hoc grants.

hi Raza Rumi: Why just Indscribe's views on the bomb blasts?

Raza Rumi said...

I agree that I am not interested 'only' in indscribe's views. However, I like the way he probes, presents an enlightened Indian muslim view and thought that he might shed some light on the community's perspective. In particular, why were they not accepting the cheques? I saw a brief report and wanted to know more. The mainstream Indian media is sensational presents a black or white view of a complex issue such as terrorism!
Anyway, saw your nice blog as well. You seem to be Bulleh's Shah's fan?
