Aao Fir Nazm Kahe Lyrics
Phir Kisi Dard Ko Sahla Ke Suja Le Ankhen
Phir Kisi Dukhti Hui Rag Se Chhua De Nashtar
Ya Kisi Bhooli Raah Hui Pe Mudkar
Ek Baar Naam Lekar Kisi Hamnam Ko Awaz Hi De Le
Phir Koi Nazm Kahen
These verses ask me to return
Caress the pain and let these eyes swell
Use your pen to caress yet another painful vein
Or turn back to the path that was once forgotten
Call out a name, call out your namesake
Another verse begins to speak
WORD- Nashtar- Surgical Knife
On, Aao Fir Nazm Kahe, Gulzar is probably referring to how he engages in writing poetry to overcome his grief and sorrow. Unlike doctors who use knives to make you feel better, Gulzar prefers to write poetry. It’s therapeutic to him.
In the last 3 lines, he is probably referring to how during times of sorrow, he looks back at the times when he was happy. Rather than immersing himself in sadness, the poetic verses lead him to another direction- a road that’s filled with positivity. His pen leads the way.
