Come join us – Mehfil@Prithvi

Ye Hanste huwe phool, ye mehka huwa gulshan
These smiling flowers, this fragrant garden,

Ye rang mein aur noor mein doobi huwi raahen,

These paths dipped in colour and light
Ye phoolon ka ras pi ke machalte huwe bhanware

Drinking nectar of the flowers, the bees sway,
Main Doon bhi toh kya doon tumhen ae shokh nazaaro

What can I give to you, O splendid Nature?
Le- de ke mere pas kuch aansu hain kuchh aahen
All I have is few tears a, a few sighs.

Sahir Ludhianvi.
(English translation: Nasreen Kabir)
