In today’s Podcast of Hindi, today we will walk in the world of Hindi Ghazals. Whenever there will be discussion of Hindi Ghazal, that discussion will be incomplete without Dushyant Kumar. It should be said that Dushyant Kumar was the person who told that ghazals are above sur, sura and sundari. He also showed that ghazals in Hindi can be as romantic and murderous, as much as political and deadly. See his ghazal-
Many puppets of a doll have a life
Today the poet is surprised to see this spectacle.
Special roads are closed since then for repairs
This is the most recognizable identity of our times.
An old man is in the country or say
There is a skylight in this Andheri closet.
Mashalat-Amaz are political steps
You will not understand politics, you are immature now.
This way, the restrictions of e-religion are yours.
Since independence, Ramadan has been in the country.
Yesterday he got dressed in a rag
I asked the name and said that it is Hindustan.
How do millions of people stay in me?
Every ghazal is now a statement to the Sultanate.
It has been melted as Pir Parvat
There should be some Ganges out of this Himalayas
Today this wall started moving like curtains
The condition was that this foundation should be shaken
On every street, in every street, in every city, in every village
Every corpse must be waving
My goal is not just to create a ruckus
I try to change this appearance
If not in my chest then right in your chest
There should be a fire anywhere, but the fire should be lit

The one i cover
Let me tell you that ghazal
There is a forest in your eyes
Wherever i forget
You pass like a train
I tremble like a bridge
If i come to light
Since an arm was uprooted
Lift more weight
I try to forget you
How close i get today
Who will play this distance
I’m angel tell the truth
This whole body will be bent and weighed down
I was not convinced you must have been cheated
Many rivers dry up by coming here
I know where the water is going to be
It is amazing that you do not listen to the sound of your death
All of them are tests, what must have happened there
This noise is heard in your city
That someone in the forest of humans must have been laughing
Died after spending many hours
They all say now, no, it must have happened
Here only the dumb and deaf people live
How would you like to have a fire there
