In love with these lines of one of the most popular poets of India – Gulzar.
Main kabhi cigerette peeta nahi
Magar har aane wale se puch leta hi ki maachis hai.
Bahot kuch hai jise main foonk dena chahta hun.
I‘ll translate it to English –
I do not smoke .
But I ask every passerby if he has got matches
Because there is a lot, that I want to set to fire.
Isn’t it wonderful? I saw this image on my whatsap and just loved the beautiful piece of poetry. Isn’t it so deep? And Simple at the same time.
His use of a powerful imagery and a control over words gained by decades of experience is the charm of these lines . His poetry is much different than other poets and that makes him Gulzar saab. (master)
