‘Insha g utho ab kooch karo is shehr main g ka lgana kya’ is a beautiful song and poem by Ibn-e-Insha, a great legend Urdu Poet from Pakistan. Insha discusses the dejection of a lover from both personal and social aspects. The hero of the poem is the speaker himself. He calls himself Insha. He is too dismayed at fall of events. Therefore he is desirous of leaving his hometown.
The speaker expresses his inner belief that he is not longer a sane human being. Particularly from his outer appearance; therefore, he must go. He compares himself to a noble person that deserts the world in the search of God. He tells that his heart is bruised intensely. Interesting enough is his way of relating the countless holes(wounds) in his heart. He tells us that one cannot beg with a cloth that has a thousand holes, similar is the condition of the poet.
He also tells us that despite his poor and shabby condition; his beloved would be waiting for him, so he must reach there on time though he is already late. He is caught with the intriguing thoughts if his beloved would ask him the reason of coming late then what his excuses would be. Like a typical lover, Ibn-e-Insha believes that beloved is as pretty as angels but he wishes to touch and feel the beauty of his princess lover which he cannot.
Roman Urdu of the poem ‘Insha g utho ab kooch karo is shehr main g ka lgana kya’ by Ibn-e-Insha.
Insha g utho ab kooch karo is shehr main g ka lgana kya
Wehshi ko sakoon se kya matlab, jogi ka nagar main thikana kya
Is dil ke wareeda daman ko dekho to sahi socho to sahi
Jis jholi main so ched huwy us jholi ka phelana kya
Shab beeti chand bhi doob chala, zanjeer pari darwazay par
Kyun der gaye ghar aye ho, sajni se karo ge bahana kya
Phir hijar ki lambi rat mian sanjog ki ik aur ghari
Jo dil main he lab pay anay do sharmana kya ghabrana kya
Us roz jo un ko dekha ik khwab ka alam lagta tha
Us roz jo un se bat huwy, wo bat bhi thy afsana kya
Us husn ke suchay moti ko ham dekh saken par choo na saken
Jise dekh saken par choo na saken, wo dolat kya wo khazana kya
