The Moth and the Flame

Is nazm k pichay aik choti si dastan chuppi hai–jo agar bayan krdi jaye tau samajhne mai asani hogi. Ye dunya ki sab se purani dastan hai–aik Parwane aur aik Shama ki.

Aik raat Parwana Shama kai pas aya aur jaise he us mai samone laga tau Shama barham hui aur kaha k–‘Ay Parwane tera maqaam ye nahi kai tu mujh mai samoye aur bhasam ho jaye–Tu tau azal hai–tera uncha naam hai’.

Is k jawab mai Parwane ne jawab dia—
~~ La maqam ko maqam na de–log lapata hain, unko qayam na de
Jo hain parchayan-unko azal ka jaam na de
La-parwa basere hain–unko lagam na de

Ye sun k Shama ne kaha–
~~ Mera ujala aaj bhi hai aur kal bhi–
Phir ye baat aj he kyun?

Tau Parwane ne jawab dia–
~~ Aj ko kal ki trha–koi uncha naam na de

Ye sun k Shama puri tapish mai ayi tau Parwana ahista se bola–
~~ Khatam ho jayen gai–par tu kisi ko ye paighaam na de
