Woh Humsafar Tha!

20 Nov

One of the most famous songs these days is ‘woh hmsafar tha……..’. The drama Humsafar made it popular but little did most of us know that it is a work of renowned poet Naseer Turabi. It was innitially sung by Abida Perveen and now for the Hum TV drama Humsafar Qurutulain Baloch has sung it. She has undoubtedly done justice with the theme of the poetry and put soul into it.

Tark-e-taulaqaat pe roya, na tu, na main

Laikin ye kaya ke chain se soya, na tu, na main

Woh humsafar tha magar us say humnawaayi na thi

Keh dhoop chayon ka alam raha,judaai na thi

Na apna ranj na auron ka dukh,na tera malal

Shab`e firaq kabhi hum nay yun ganwayi na thi

Mohabbaton ka safar is tarha bhi guzra tha

Shikasta dil thay musaafir shikasta paayi na thi

Adawatein thin,taghaful tha,ranjishein thin magar

Bicharhnay walay main sab kuch tha,bewafaayi na thi

Bicharhtay waqt un aankhon main thi humari ghazal

Ghazal bhi woh jo kisi ko abhi sunayi na thi

Kabhi yeh haal keh donon main yakdili thi bohat

Kabhi yeh marhala jaisay keh ashnayi na thi

Ajeeb hoti hay rah`e sukhan bhi dekh naseer

Wahan bhi aa gaye akhir jahan rasayi na thi

    Thank you for the information on the poet. It is a pity that people get famous due too some poetry but never bother to mention who was the poet. Similar is the situation with famous ‘gorakh dhanda’ by Nusrat Fatah.
    It is said Naseer Turabi wrote these lines when Bangladesh was created!
