Continuing with the Jagjit Singh mood this autumn, here is another of his classics.
Tum Itna Jo Muskura Rahe Ho
Kya Gham Hai Jisko Chhupa Rahe Ho
You who is smiling so much
What sadness is it that you are hiding?
Aankhon Mein Nami, Hansi Labon Par
Kya Haal Hai Kya Dikha Rahe Ho
Your eyes are moist though there is a smile on your lips,
How are you and what are you portraying?
Ban Jayenge Zehar Peete Peete
Yeh Ashq Jo Pite Ja Rahe Ho
It will become poison that you drink
These tears that you keep swallowing
Jin Zakhmon Ko Waqt Bhar Chala Hai
Tum Kyon Unhe Chhedhe Ja Rahe Ho
Those wounds that time has healed
Why are you digging them up? (?)
Rekhaon Ka Khel Hai Muqaddar
Rekhaon Se Maat Kha Rahe Ho
This is a game of fate you are playing (?)
You are losing to fate.
I would welcome any corrections, especially since ghazals have a lot more Urdu words in them and I never learnt any.
