Ghazab kiya tere wade pe aitbaar kiya...



Daagh Dehlvi داغ دہلوی            PLAY>>>>>>(Ghazab Kiya Audio/Video)


Nawab Mirza Khan Daagh (نواب مرزا خان) was born in 1831 in Delhi. He lost his father at a young age and was raised by his step father, Mirza Muhammed Fakhroo (heir to Bahadur Shah Zafar). In 1865, Daagh left Delhi for Rampur where he joined government service and lived comfortably. He spent the later part of his life in Hyderabad.

Daagh started reciting poetry at the age of ten. His forte was ghazal. He was a romantic shayar and he shunned wine.
Daagh Dehlvi passed away in 1905.

I have attempted one of his very popular ghazals made unforgettable by Rafi Sahab. Music director is Khayyam.

Ghazab kiyaa, tere vaade pe aitabaar kiyaa
tamaam raat qayaamat kaa i.ntezaar kiyaa

ha.Nsaa ha.Nsaa ke shab-e-vasl ashk-baar kiyaa
tasalliyaa.N mujhe de-de ke beqaraar kiyaa

ham aise mahv-e-nazaaraa na the jo hosh aataa
magar tumhaare taGaaful ne hoshiyaar kiyaa

fasaana-e-shab-e-Gam un ko ek kahaanii thhii
kuchh aitabaar kiyaa aur kuchh naa-aitabaar kiyaa
