    Sorry- the community is Mehfil not Mohfil 🙂

  3. Harshad Mark on

    Thanks for posting this. Do you have this nazm/ghazal by
    Beghum Akhtar ?
    I can not imangine this nazm sung by any-one else by Beghum Aktar.

    • lowtechgal on

      Totally agree 🙂

      As a kid I just could not bear the often off note singing and the tone but I cannot help but compare. And every time Begum Akhtar comes out ahead. May be it brings back happy childhood moemories, memories of mom and dad in their youth… may be thats what I need to re-visit every few months.

    Sir, this is a fantastic translation and you have explained the words amazingly. All of them are accurate and reliable. I can’t thank you enough for all these wonderful articles and explanations. They have increased my knowledge of Urdu to a great extent. Thank you so much! Can you please translate ‘Ek Baar Muskura Do’ by Munni Begum as well? That would be great.
