sannaton ki cheekhon se ye raat sunsaan kyun hai?
kyun ye kuch bolti nahi?
zubaan ke parde kholti nahi?
behte jharne ki jagah,
khoon ki fuharein kyun hain?
iske maile daaman mein,
dard ki daraarein kyun hain?
mazloom hasratein maut ki mehmaan kyun hain?
parindon ka shor kyun nahi,
yahan shamshaan kyun hai?

shayad ye kuch batana chahti hai,
haal-e-dil jatana chahti hai
haare hue sipahi ki tarah,
jeet mein nahana chahti hai
dum todti syahi si,
adhoori daastaan sunana chahti hai

par majboor hai,
laachar hai
shayad ye bhi kisi ki darindagi ka shikaar hai
issliye shoonyata ke aagosh mein samaana chahti hai,
andheron ke gart mein kho jana chahti hai

talkh lehzon se iski aabru lahuluhaan kyun hai?
har dard iski maut ka saamaan kyun hai?
kabhi kabhi yun hi sochta hu,
aakhir ye raat itni badnaam kyun hai?

    well a good question , raat itni badnaam kyun hai .. Well I think we have made it that way by relating everything bad to darkness and night brings darkness ..


    I usually have night shifts at work , so i jsut love nights :)

    Bikram's

  4. Last line packs a punch! I agree with Bikram, we relate everything bad to darkness and night means darkness. we have been made to believe that everything devilish breeds in night. Though night has its own beauty. When else can you marvel at the twinkling of stars, the beauty of mystical moon and acknowledge the existence of glow worms!
