It’s not the time to express; stay quiet

O folk! Be quiet, below, and be quiet

Truth is noble yet, venom’s bowl awaits

Are you silly? Don’t be Socrates; be quiet

Truth is a virtue! Better if someone else dies

Are you Mansoor, to be hanged? Be quiet

Lethem says; the sun revolves around the earth

Let the sun spin around; better to be quiet

Suffocation in the party, satirical airs stab

Think, ponder and recollect, but stay quiet

Hot tears, cool sighs! How the heart feels?

Stroll! Don’t unveil conditions, just be quiet

Watch with eyes closed, keep self-poised

Follow  Insha ji, watch, muse and! Be quiet

کچھ کہنے کا یہ وقت نہیں۔ کچھ نہ کہو، خاموش رھو
اے لوگو خاموش رھو، ھاں اے لوگو خاموش رھو
سچ اچھا پر اس کے جلو میں، زھر کا ھے اک پیالہ بھی
پاگل ھو؟ کیوں ناحق کو سقراط بنو، خاموش رھو
حق اچھا ، پر اس کے لئے کوئی اور مرے تو اور اچھا
تم بھی کوئی منصور ھو جو سولی پر چڑھو، خاموش رھو
ان کا یہ کہنا سورج ھی دھرتی کے پھیرے کرتا ھے
سر آنکھوں پر سورج ھی کو گھومنے دو، خاموش رھو
مجلس میں کچھ حبس ھے اور زنجیر کا آھن چبھتا ھے
پھر سوچو، ھاں پھر سوچو،ھاں پھر سوچو، خاموش رھو
گرم آنسو اور ٹھنڈی آھیں، من میں کیا کیا موسم ھیں
اس بگیا کے بھید نہ کھولو، سیر کرو، خاموش رھو
آنکھیں موند کنارے بیٹھو، من کے رکھو بند کواڑ
انشاءجی سے دھاگا لو، لب سی لو، خاموش رھو
(ابن انشاء)

His story is famed that he fell in love with a damsel

That damsel’s beauty was not charming or captivating

Girls were prettier and fairer than flowers in that locale;

She had appeal in her talk and some magic in chanting

The same alluring magic that enlightens lover’s feelings

 Being so engrossed in her love he forgot his own being

There lived a nutty nut in a town, and he was called Insha

 Neither playful actions nor any lovely chat between them

They only met on the way or chuckled on the telephone

We made fun of their affair; it was a simple pass time only

Whatever they had was veiled, the secret was their solely

One day there was no boat no shore in violent love’s ocean

There lived a nutty nut in a town, and he was called Insha;

One day when in the rainy season, was heavy monsoon rain

Viewers saw them, on the shoreline sitting hand in hand,

From dusk to evening, evening to night drifters went home

 What a magical night it was, felt like penning a tale on them

There lived a nutty nut in a town, and he was called Insha

 They made many promises and undertaking to live together

The promises they made had no surety but added losses

The maiden deserted him making an excuse of her helplessness

 He was heartbroken, underwent depression and helplessness

That day we know how hard it was to make a lover realize

There lived a nutty nut in a town, and he was called Insha

His heart ached; tears ran down his eyes like flowing a river

Bearing grief, never shared with anyone, remained silent

Foolish are the ones who tease him in distress and torment

He made one appeal to his friends and foes; he will hear

To whatever they say about him but not to talk his affair

There lived a nutty nut in a town, and he was called Insha

Not known the actuality, sharing what so heard

What the maiden chanted, was her back fairy-tale

One evening invited her, opened his heart to her

That night committing suicide ended his fairy-tale

It was known from the newspaper about the matter

There lived a nutty nut in a town, he was called Insha

Let me say that to look for the facts, is not at all fair

Let the name and fame of the dame be behind a veil

I can deceit, you can cheat is but doable, let be in veil

This can be my narrative; it may be my personal affair

That dame repented! What’s the use of resenting now?

There lived a nutty nut in a town, and he was called Insha

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Ka Dewana,

Ek Naar Pe Jan Ko Haar Gia,

Mash Hoor Hai Us Ka Afsana,

Us Naar Mein Aisa Roop Na Tha,

Jis Roop Se Din Ki Dhoop Dabe,

Is Shehr Mein Kia Kia Goori Hai,

Mehtab Rukhe Gul Naar Labe,

Kuch Bat Thi Us Ki Baton Mein,

Kuch Bhaid Thay Us Ki Chatoon Mein,

Wohi Bhaid K Jot Jagate Hain,

Kisi Chahne Wale K Mann Mein,

Usay Apna Banane Ki Dhun Mein,

Howa Aap Hi Aap Se Begana,

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Tha Deewana,

Na Chakchal Khail Jawani K,

Na Pyar Ki Alhar Ghatein Thein,

Bas Raah Mein Un Ka Milna Tha,

Ya Fone Pe Un Ki Batein,

Is Ishq Pe Hum Hanste Thay,

Be Hasil Sa Be Hasil Tha?

Ek Roz Bephirte Sagar Mein,

Na Kashti Thi Na Sahil Tha,

Jo Bat Thi In K Jee Mein Thi,

Jo Bhaid Tha Yaksar Anjana,

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Deewana Tha,

Ek Roz Magar Bar Kharut Mein,

Wo Bhadon Thi Ya Sawan Tha,

Deewar Pe Beech Samandar K,

Ye Dekhne Walon Ne Dekha,

Mastana Hath Mein Hath Diye,

Ye Aik Kagar Par Baithe Thay,

Kia Rat Thi Wo Jee Chahta Hai,

Us Rat Pe Likhain Afsana,

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Tha Deewana,

Haan Umar Ka Sath Nibhane K Thay,

Ehad Bahut Paiman Bahut,

Wo Jin Pe Bharosa Karne Mein,

Kuch Sood Nahi Nuqsan Bahut,

Wo Naria Keh Kar Door Hoi,

Majboori Sajan Majboori,

Ye Wehshat Se Ranjoor Howe,

Aur Ranjoor Si Ranjoori?

Us Roz Humain Maloom Howa,

Us Shakhs Ka Mushkil Samjhana,

Is Basti K Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Tha Deewana,

Go Aag Se Chati Jalti Thi,

Go Aankh Se Daria Behta Tha,

Har Aik Se Dukh Nahi Kehta Tha,

Chup Rehta Tha Gham Sehta Tha,

Na Daan Hain Wo Jo Cherte Hain,

Is Aalam Mein Na Daano Ko,

Is Shakhs Se Aik Jawab Mila,

Sab Apno Ko Begano Ko,

Kuch Aur Kaho To Sunta Hon,

Us Baab Mein Kuch Mat Farmana,

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Tha Deewana,

Ab Aage Tehqeeq Nahi,

Go Sunte Ko Hum Sunte Thay,

Us Naar Ki Jo Batein Thein,

Us Naar K Jo Qisse Thay,

Ek Sham Jo Us Ko Bulwaya,

Kuch Samjhaya Bechare Ne,

Us Rat Ye Qissa Pak Kia,

Kuch Kha Hi Lia Dukhiare Ne,

Kia Bat Hoi Kis Tor Ho?

Akhbar Se Logon Ne Jana,

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek INSHA Naam Ka Tha Deewana,

Har Bat Ki Khoj To Theek Nahi,

Tum Hum Ko Kahani Kehne Do,

Us Naar Ka Naam Maqam Hai Kia,

Is Bat Pe Parda Rehne Do,

Hum Se Bhi To Soda Mumkin Hai,

Tum Se Bhi Jafa Ho Sakti Hai,

Ye Apna Bayaan Ho Sakta Hai,

Ye Apni Khata Ho Sakti Hai,

Wo Naar Bhi Aakhir Pachtai,

Kis Kaam Ka Aisa Pachtana?

Is Basti K Ek Kooche Mein,

Ek Insha Naam Ka Tha Deewana…

I traveled to towns to meadows,

With an ache of craving, in heart

To have a dearly loved, a dear one

To have a luminosity or a sheen;

Say once, that you are mine!

When monsoon clouds float

When spring blossoms around

When the moon showers light

When the sun bathe in sunshine

Or the evening enchanting town

Say once, that you are mine!

Loving arms are heartily open

Why damsel down in the dumps

How long we’ll be deceived in love

How long will you seek to peek?

When’ll heart be elated to peek?

Say once, that you are mine!

Why to fret on profit and loss

It’s not a gypsy’s trade to do

Take away all money and riches

You alone are precious for me;

Say once only, that you are mine
