मायाजाल न तोड़ा जाये
लोभी मन मुझको ललचाये
मिल जाये तो रोग है दुनिया
मिल न सके तो मन ललचाये
मेरे अाँसू उनका दामन
रेत पे झरना सूखा जाये
ताश के महलों में हरदम
काँच की चूड़ी खनकी जाये
प्यार मुहब्बत रिश्ते नाते
‘सानी’ कुछ भी काम न अाये

— ज़रीना सानी

Dr. Zarina Sani wrote this when her 13 year old son* once told her that she wrote very tough Urdu and he could not understand it and that she should perhaps write for the common man.

  1. “Mil jaye to rog hai duniya, mil na sake to man lalchaye”

    How very true. A beautiful poem that lives to its purpose. Even a person like me with zero urdu knowledge could understand it.

    1. Thanks for leaving a comment, Nupur. Yes, it is a very beautiful poem; there are so many of hers that I want to share. Will be putting several of them online soon.
