john elia, the greatest among comtemporary urdu poets

aajkal john elia ka daur chal raha hai
i cannot stop till i can hear/read all the material on him online
hum zaahil hain urdu ke maamle main. par aise shairon ko samajhne ke liye urdu sikhi ja sakti hai. bilkul..

gazal: uske pahloo se lag ke chalte hain
recited in jash-e-john elia at dubai

--
uske pahloo se lag ke chalte hain
hum kahin taalne se talte hain

main ussi tarah to bahalta hoon
`aur` jis tarah bahalte hain

woh hain jaan ab har ek mehfil ki
hum bhi ab ghar se kam nikalte hain

kya takalluf karein yeh kahne mein
jo bhi khush hain hum usse jalte hain

hai use door ka safr dar-pesh
hum sambhale nahin sambhalte hain

hai ajab faisle ka sehra bhi,
chal na padiye to paanv jalte hain

ho raha hoon main kis tarah barbaad
dekhne wale haath malte hain

tum bano rang tum bano khusboo
hum to apne sukhan mein dhalte hain
