Ek Baap Ki Fariyaad

Budha Ho Gaya Hoon Mai Thora Waqt De Diya Kar
Baith Kar Doh Chaar Hi Sahi Mujh Se Batain Kar Liya Kar
Tu He Meri Lathi Hai Tu He Meri Roshni
Kuch Duur Rasta Meray Saath Bhi  Tai Kar Liya Kar
Mar Joaoonga Ek Din Chala Jaoonga Chor Kar
Jo Bachi Hai Zindage Uss May Kuch Lamhay Meray  Liye Rakh Liya Kar.

The above few lines were penned by my maternal uncle (mama) Muhammad Ather Tungekar from Karachi, Pakistan.  The lines represent a general feeling of all parents and is not reflective of Muhammad Ather Tungekar’s personal feelings.

In reply to his lines, I put forth my views of what generally is happening today.  Again, my thoughts should not be viewed as situational to me.

Tumney mujhey apney god mein sulaya
Tumney mujhey apney haathon sey khilaya
Tum hi they jiski ungli pakadkar
Meiney apna pehla kadam badhaya
Tum hi they meri har mushkil mein merey saathi
Tum hi they jis sey meiney apney dil ki har baat baanti
Tum hi they jisney mujhey kaabil banaya
Tum hi they jisney mujhey sahi manzil ka raasta dikhaya
Aaj mein jis kaamyabi par hoon
Tum hi to ho iski wajah
Par aaj waqt kitna badal gaya
Mujhko milney ko tumhara dil tadap gaya
Mein bhi kitna bekhabar sa hoon
Apney farz sey anjaan sa hoon
Aaj mujhko saath dena chahiye tumhara
Aur mein hoon key apney duniya mein uljha sa hoon
Mujhko jab thi tumhari zaroorat, uff bhi na kiya aur sath diya
Ab hai tumko meri tadap, aur mein…yeh haal hai key tumhari fariyad bhi ansuni si hai
Waqt aur bhi badlega, woh din bhi aaega
Jab mujhko tumko dena hoga kaandha
Tab bhi shaayad ehsaas na hoga
Tumhey waqt na dena ka afsos bhi na hoga
Waqt phir aur bhi badlega
Waqt ka chakkar mujhko le aaega us umr par
Jis umr par ki thi tumney yeh fariyaad
Tab shaayad ehsaas hoga mujhko
Kaash dhyaan diya hota
Kaash tumko waqt diya hota
Ehsaas hoga us akeley-pan ka, jo tumko us waqt mehsoos hua hoga
Kaash meiney na ki hoti yeh galti
Kassh meiney apni zimmedari puri ki hoti
Mein na jaanta tha us waqt
Bachpan sey lekar budhapey tak
Har shaqs guzarta hai ek jaisey haalat sey
Kal meiney kiya tha aap ko rusva
Aaj shaayad mujhko bhi hona hoga rusva
Yehi hai har waqt ki kahani
Kadva sach hai…maano to haqeeqat hai…
Na maano to sirf khud key dil ko behla rahey ho
