Hum tow Fna ho gye unki aakhon ko dekh kar ‘galib'
Na Jane wo kaise aaina dekhte honge .
_ Mirza galib
#Ye ishq nhi aasan ab itna samajh lijie
Ek aag ka daria hai dub ke Jana hai.
#Mere huzre me nhi kahi or rakh do
Aasman aae ho , jameen PR rakh do .
#Sarm, vehsat , jhijak , presani , naaj SE kaam kyu nhi leti
Ye , Aap , wo , Jii agr kya hai , aap mera naam kyu nhi lete.
#Mere kamare ko sajane ki tammana hai tumhen.
Mere kamare me kitabon ke Siva kuch bhi nhi
#Tumhare maathe PR ye aachal tow bhut khub hai lekin.
Tum iss aachal SE ek parcham bna leti tow achha tha.
#Koi dewaana kehta hai koi pagal samjhta hai .
Magar darti ki bechaeni sirf badal samajhta hai .
Tu mujhse dur kessi hai mai tujhse dur kessa hun
Ye tera dil samjhta hai ya mera dil samjhta hai.
