Sab Mein Shaamil Ho

The First Song… has to be Mohammad Rafi’s:

Lyrics by Sahir Ludhianvi

सब में शामिल हो मगर सबसे जुदा लगती हो
सिर्फ हमसे नहीं खुद से भी खफा लगती हो

sab me.n shaamil ho magar sabase judaa lagatii ho
sirf hamase nahii.n khud se bhii Kafaa lagatii ho
sab me.n shaamil …

आँख उठती है न झुकती है किसी की खातिर
साँस चढ़ती है न रूकती है किसी की खातिर
जो किसी दर पे न ठहरे वो हवा लगती हो
सिर्फ हमसे नहीं…

aa.Nkh uThatii hai na jhukatii hai kisii kii Kaatir -2

ज़ुल्फ़ लहराए तो आँचल में छुपा लेती हो
होंठ थर-थराये तो दांतों में दबा लेती हो
जो कभी खुल के न बरसे वो घटा लगती हो
सिर्फ हमसे नहीं…

zulf laharaa_e to aa.Nchal me.n chhupaa letii ho -2
ho.nTh tharraa_e.N to daa.Nto.n me.n dabaa letii ho
jo kabhii khul ke na barase vo ghaTaa lagatii ho
sirf hamase nahii.n …

थर थाराहठ, Thar Tharaahat: Quiver, Quake, Tremble

जागी जागी नज़र आती हो न सोई सोई
तुम जो हो अपने खयालात में खोई खोई
किसी मायूस मुसव्विर की दुआ लगती हो
सिफत हमसे नहीं…

jaagii-jaagii nazar aatii ho na so_ii-so_ii -2
tum jo ho apane Kyaalaat me.n kho_ii-kho_ii
kisii maayuus musavvir kii du_aa lagatii ho
sirf hamase nahii.n …
