On his 85th birthday today, we take a look at some of his best lines he had penned down:
Dawa agar kaam na aaye, to nazar bhi utaarti hai
Ye Maa hai sahab, haar kaha maanti hai.
Aankhen meech, chaadar ko kheench, khud ko dhak leta hoon.
Kal agar nahin utha toh yeh chaadar khoob kaam aayegi.
Zindagi yun hui basar Tanha,
Kafila sath aur safar tanha...
Apne saaye se chaunk jaate hain,
Umra guzri hai iss kadar tanha.
Kabhi toh chauk ke dekhe koi hamari taraf,
Kisi ki aankh mein humko bhi intezaar dikhe.
Hum ne aksar tumhari raahon mein,
Ruk kar apna hi intzaar kiya.
Ek hi khwab ne saari raat jagaya hai,
Maine har karvat sone ki koshish ki.
Aisa toh kabhi hua nahi,
Gale bhi lage aur chhua nahi.
Aapse itni si guzarish hai, aaeye bheeg lein ki baarish hai,
Humne kab aapse kaha miliye, sirf mausam ki ye sifarish hai.
Tham kar reh jati hai jindagi..,
Jab jam kar barasti hain purani yaadein.
Apne andar ke bache ko hamesha zinda rakiye sahab,
Hadd se jyada samajhdari jeevan ko berang kar deti hai.
Achi kitabe aur ache log, turant samajh nahi aate,
Unhe padhna padta hai.
