On his 84th birthday, we bring 10 excerpts from Gulzar’s poems that beautifully capture the depth of love and life.

  • Udd ke jaate hue panchhi ne bas itna hi dekha,
    Der tak haath hilaati rahi wah shaakh fiza mein.
    Alvida kahne ko? Ya paas bulane ke liye?

  • Na main utarunga ab saanson ke saahil se, na wo utaregi mere aasmaan par jhulte taaron ke peengon se,
    Magar jab kehte kehte daastaan fir waqt ne lambi jamhaayi li, na wo tehari na main rok paaya tha,
    Bahut phoonka sulagte chaand ko fir bhi use ek ek kala ghat te hue dekha,
    Bahut kheencha samandar ko magar saahil talak hum laa nahi paaye,
    Seher ke waqt fir utare hue saahil pe ek dooba hua khaali samandar tha.

  • Aaina dekh kar tasalli hui,
    Hum ko is ghar mein janta hai koi.

  • Suno…jara rasta to batana.
    Mohabbat ke safar se wapasi hain meri.

  • Humne dekhi hai un aankhon ki mehekti khushboo,
    Haath se chhooke ise, rishton ka ilzaam na do,
    Sirf ehsaas hai ye, rooh se mehsoos karo,
    Pyar ko pyar hi rehne do, koi naam na do…

  • Ek baar waqt se, lamha gira kahin,
    Wahan daastan mili,
    Thoda sa hasake, thoda sa rulake,
    Pal yeh bhi janewala hain…”

  • Hamne sapna dekha hai koi apna dekha hai,
    Jab raat ka ghunghat utrega aur din ki doli gujaregi,
    Tab sapna pura hoga,
    Thoda hai thode ki jaroorat hai,
    Zindagi phir bhi yahan khoobsurat hai.

  • Kahin kisi roz yoon bhi hota, humari haalat tumhari hoti,
    Jo raat humne guzaari marke, woh raat tumne guzaari hoti.

  • Woh yaar hai jo khushboo ki tarah,
    Woh jiski zubaan urdu ki tarah,
    Meri shaam raat, meri kaayanat,
    Woh yaar mera saiyya saiyya.
