وہ نظریں

 [اپنی  شفیق ماں سیّدہ سرفراز فاطمہ نشتر خیرابادی کی اُن محبّت اور شفقت بھری نظروں کے نام جو شاید آج بھی میراتعاقُب کرتی ہیں]

میری جا نِب کو تکتی ہوئ وہ مُحبّت کی نظریں

اپنی قُربت کا مُجھے اِحساس دِلا دیتی ہیں Read more…

Parveen finally entered the classroom and Sultan’s wait came to an end. After taking attendance, the professor called out, “So, what is deductive logic?”
Silence gripped the classroom and every student sat still, hoping not to attract attention. Sultan looked around, then slowly raised his hand.
“Yes, Sultan!” The professor’s voice boomed and the class heaved a collective sigh of relief. Read more…

Dr Shahzad Rizvi on Muslim Saleem and revelation of his poetic art

April 24, 2011 2 comments
A few months ago my sister, Dr. Imrana Nashtar, who was Reader in Aligarh Universitya nd now lives in the United States, informed me that a gentleman in Bhopal was preparing a directory of Urdu poets and his name is Mr. Muslim Saleem – thus I was introduced to Mr. Saleem in absentia. When I logged on to his blogs my introduction to him became complete:  I discovered his poetic prowess through his Urdu poetry. I thought that it would be a shame if the international readers would be deprived from enjoyment of his marvelous poems. Read more…

صُبح نو

)اُس صُبح کے نام جِس کا   شاید ہماری قوم کوا یک مُدّت سے انتظار ہے(

صُبح نو کا سورج طلوع ہونے والا ہے

تُم یہ دیکھوگے کہ ہر سِمت اُجالا ہوگا

رات کی سیاہی جب چھٹ جائے گی ذہن و دِل سے

ہر طرف روشنیوں کا بول بالا ہوگا Read more…

Woman and Me’ by Dr Shahzad Rizvi

April 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Gliding in the sun-rays
Her body touched the strings of my heart.
Her music created kaleidoscopic images.
I fell in step with her.
We traversed many a galaxy.
Then, all of a sudden,
She dissolved into light and engulfed me.
I was ecstatic.
The union gave me more than a million others might.
Now the essence of this woman
Is an integral part of me.
It gives me the fuel of life, hope, happiness.

Translation of the poem “jab ham ne zindagi ki gineen rahaten tamam” of Muslim Saleem by Dr. Shahzad Rizvi

April 21, 2011 Leave a comment
When we counted all the comforts of life
Years and years became concentrated in just a few moments
It seems a huge tree even now
Though the ravages of time have destroyed all its roots
It felt always as if the awaited one will come to me
But the echo of the footsteps turned away as it got  near me
I and the courage to protest – never – never
My veins suddenly began  to shout
When I broke all the limits spontaneously
Then I realized this is exactly what she wanted
I went around hiding my pain from the world
But my tossing and turning left its mark on the bed

English translation of ghazal (jab bhi jazbon ke liye) by Muslim Saleem by Dr. Shahzad Rizvi

April 19, 2011 Leave a comment
When expressing emotions words turned into daggers
The delicate hands were transformed into murder weapons
When the high and mighty were brought down by the raging storm of time
The lowly ones rose to the occasion and took their place
Slowly but assuredly we learned the art of living
While living among Romans we turned into Romans
Since we plunged into the ocean of struggles of life
we faced such challenges that we became expert swimmers
Leaving poverty and starvation behind when we launched ourselves
our determination became steely like Alexander’s to conquer the world
From afar everything was titillating and tempting and beautiful
And when we touched them up close they turned into meaningless nothings
Muslim – who happened to pass through the universe of my imagination
That many a past moments of my memory became eternally fragrant

RAGE – a short story by Dr. Shahzad Rizvi

April 18, 2011 Leave a comment
The actor pulled out the number nine club from the golf bag that he always kept on the passenger seat next to him, and swung it at the young man who had cut him off. With his car’s top down, the young man had no protection and the club hit him hard on the head. Blood oozing from his temple, he slumped over the steering wheel, setting his car horn blaring. Traffic stopped and everyone craned his neck to see what had happened. A paparazzo, who had been trailing the actor, jumped out of his car and began clicking photos from different angles. A local station’s news crew quickly materialized and began filming the scene. Read more…

Nashtar Khairabadi – ghazal – jaan sambhali na gayee

April 18, 2011 Leave a comment

 غزل

 نشتر خیرابادی

جِس کے دِل  پر یہ لگی جان سنبھالی نہ گئی

چشِم جاناں  کبھی گولی تِری خالی  نہ گئی

نام دُنیا   میں  مُحبّت کا   نِکا لا  میں نے

آپ سے ایک تمنّا بھی نِکالی    نہ گئی

 خونِ نا حق کا  اثر اِس سے سِوا کیا ہوگا

قتل  کرکے  بھی تِری آنکھ کی لالی نہ گئی

 بِجلیاں   سُوے   قفس آیئں گیئں سو سو بار

بننے  کو   شاخِ قفس پھو لوں کی ڈالی  نہ گئی

 رات دِن زُلفِ پر یشاں کا تصوّر ہے  تجھے

ہائے نشتر  تِری آ شفتہ خیالی نہ گئی
