प्रेम -सुधा जब यहीं पे हो बरसे
बैठ मेरे पास तुम प्रिये
रूपसी तेरे संग को तरसे
नीर सरिता जब आंखो से बहे
अभिसार सरिता को भूल जाओगे
पी जाओ मेरे अश्कों को प्रिये
'रूपसी तेरे अनुराग को तरसे
छोड़ दी है सारी शरमो हया
तोड़ दी सब बन्धन दीवार
बाँध ले मुझे अपने आलिंगन में प्रिये
'रूपसी तेरे प्रेम -पाश को तरसे
रोम रोम में मेरे जब
खिल रही है प्रेम -कली
खो जाओ सुगंध में प्रिये
'रूपसी तेरी मदहोशी को तरसे
क्यों छेड़ना कोई राग
जब गुनगुना रहा है मेरा दिल
तेरे प्रेम के सरगम पे प्रिये
'रूपसी तेरे प्रेम -साज़ को तरसे
तेरा प्यार ही मेरा गहना
और है मेरा सोलह -श्रृंगार
जतन से तुम मुझे सजाओ प्रिये
'रूपसी तेरे प्रेम - रतन को तरसे
NO ! I have not written this marvelous poem. This is a poem 'Someone' posted as a comment to my poem "आयो चलें उस पर्वत पार" !
All I wanna ask to writer, why Rupsee sounds so sad here ? As far as I know her, she is a always smiling girl. A bindass girl.

But I think, I should blame this Rupsee for not letting me put down the pen or keep my fingers off this keyboard. Her thoughts have taken command over me and forcing me to keep doodle. So my request to all the friends to find Rupsee and put her under trial.
Till then please bear with me. Sorry Juneli, you have to ignore my blah blah till I get over it. (though I don't see this happening in far future)
PS. Thanks Noreen for this beautiful picture !

Even choosing Pakistan as mother land, unlike his contemporary poet Iqbal, (who wrote famous ‘Saare Jahan Se Achcha……………..” and later, when crossed over to Pakistan, edited his poem to Saare Jahan Se Achcha, Pakistan Hamara”) Ibne Insha looks hurt with the concept of partition. His poem in this book reflects his questions:
Ibne Insha, wrote this book “Urdu ki Aakhiri Kitab” as reader in style of a school syllabus books of primary classes describing what is what. He has started the book with a prayer (funny of course) and has included all the subject being studied in a school, like, History of world, Mughals, Mathematics, Primary Science, Some educational stories, Animal Science, Bird Science, Things around us, and Nature in his own unique way.
Everything he wrote will make you laugh. Though the book was originally written in Urdu in 70’s (and I read its Hindi translation) but its is still a matter of interest (for those who know some history). Just like every reader book in school he has given questions to solve at the end of every chapter which are also very funny. Like in the chapter of ‘Sikander’ he asked a question, “Film Sikendar E Azam main kis kis ne kaam kiya tha? Us ka koi gana yaad ho to sunayo”.
While writing about history he wrote following for Akbar:
And this while describing Aurangzeb:
There are hundreds of hilarious stories he had written in this little book of 178 pages and so interesting that I read the whole book in a single sitting and then all over again with some what patience. Despite my strong will to put lot of them here I did as much as I could. Here are some 'important questions' he suggested for 'students'.
He also wrote many famous ghazals, "Insha ji Utho" is one of many favourite among ghazal lovers.
My rating for 'Urdu Ki Aakhiri Kitab' : A must read and collectable book !
