Zikra Us Rani ka

Zikra Us Rani ka

Queen 2014 Hindi film

I am an avid reader of life. And an observer. I think and look at the world, then look at the world and think again. At times try and express what’s going on within me.

Main aksar zehen se kuch yu sauda kar leta hoon,
Beshkimti khayaal chand lafzo me khareed leta hoon.

ZIKRA US RANI KA (QUEEN)

Zikra us Rani ka
Jiske haatho ki mehendi ka rang
Din-ba-din pheeka pad jaata hai.
Jo har din use, ek kadam
Khud ke kareeb le jaata hai.

Zikra us Rani ka
Jiska sharaab peena achchha lagta hai,
Jiska gum se rishta kachcha lagta hai,
Jiska har pal jeena sachcha lagta hai.

Zikra us Rani ka
Daadi jiski muhaajir thi,
Pareshaaniyo me bhi muskaan jiski saahir thi,
Aur zindagi ki pechida raaho me
Jo tajurbo ke saath haazir thi.

Zikra us Rani ka
Jo apna bojh khud dhhoti hai,
Apne bag aur apni pehchaan ko
Nayi himmat se sanjoti hai,
Jo lamho ke bikhre motiyo ko
Apne kirdaar ke dhaage se piroti hai.

Zikra us Rani ka,
Jo Ibn-E-Batuta ki yaad dilaati hai,
Safar me doosro se milti hai
Aur khud ko paa jaati hai.
Jo tanhaai ko pinjra nahi,
Apne pankh banaati hai aur ud jaati hai.

Zikra us Rani ka
Jo samaaj ke rivaazo ki khabar leti hai,
Zikra us Rani ka
Jo apne andaaz me
Apni baadshaahat
Aur apne aane ki khabar deti hai.
