The Exigencies of Life--a Gazal by Begum Akhtar

A beautiful gazal by Fakir in the dulcet voice of Begum Akhtar-

Ishq mein gairate zazbaat ne rone na diya,
Varna kya baat thi kis baat ne rone na diya.

AAP kehte the ke rone se na badlenge naseeb,
Umr bhar aapki is baat ne rone na diya.

Rone walon se kaho unka bhi rona ro len,
Jinko majbooriye halaat ne rone na diya.

Tujh se mil kar hamen rona tha bahut rona tha,
tangiye vakte mulakaat ne rone na diya.

Ek do roj ka sadma ho to ro len Fakir,
Hum ko har roz ke sadmaat ne rone na diya.
