Ab ke bicchde to


Ab ke bicchde to shayad khwabon mein mile
Jaise sookhe hue phool kitabon mein mile...


Ahmed Faraz, who wrote these immortal lines died in Pakistan yesterday. He was 77.

I am shocked. Today afternoon only I said this sher to one of my friend.

And now I read this.

I remember making a note of this couplet in my diary when I was 14...

there was another couplet that I remember listening to, ranjish hi sahi sung by runa ali, and/or mehdi hassan. Immortal lines.

Ahmad Faraz, RIP
