With this thinking, we bring to you this beautiful Urdu ghazal written by Urduwallah Anand Halve, an admirer of the language, just like all of us.

Zindagi ke parche me ek sawaal reh gaya,
Har imtihaan me mera ek sawaal reh gaya

Khwaabon ke tuutne se kuchh na badlaa,
Shikwa, gila, afsos, gham, malaal reh gaya

Teri har taareef me khamiyaan si thii…
Sach ka izhaar ankahi misaal reh gaya

Rait pe hamare qadmon-ke nishaan mit gaye,
Dil pe tera naqsh-e-paa beherhaal reh gaya

Haath ki lakeeron pe har haadse lafzon se sajaaye,
Diiwan me apni khabar-e-intekhaal reh gaya…”

– Anand Halve
