Sher on Tevar
Lovers are easily identified
by the attitude they have towards their beloveds. What is love if the lover’s countenance remains blank, or least expressive? It should be interesting to explore what brings a certain gesture, or mood, or visage to a lover. Here are some verses that bring you closer to how poets represent the expressions of lovers and what they really stand for.
ham ne dekhā hai zamāne kā badalnā lekin
un ke badle hue tevar nahīñ dekhe jaate
hum ne dekha hai zamane ka badalna lekin
un ke badle hue tewar nahin dekhe jate
