    Hi Ritesh, You have somehow read my mind. I have been thinking of this ghazal for some time.Thanks.
    By the way, I was amazed by the last sher of Prem Warbartoni’s ghazal.

    You are doing a great job . Can you please include Ghalibs
    ‘ बस कि दुष्वार है हर काम का आसान होना
    आदमी को भी मयस्सर नही इन्सान होना
    in your future post.

    This is amongst the best of Ghulam Ali’s renditions.
