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.
