चौदवीं का चांद | They Put a Man on the Moon

March 2009. Acrylic and Pen on paper. Dimensions 13.5 x 11 inches (10X6.25 inner)

 

Lyrics of the song "Chaudavin ka Chand" from the film of the same title (1960)

चौदवीं का चांद हो, या आफ़ताब हो,

जो भी हो तुम खुदा कि क़सम, लाजवाब हो

ज़ुल्फ़ें हैं जैसे काँधे पे बादल झुके हुए

आँखें हैं जैसे मय के पयाले भरे हुए

 

Translation:

Are you the moon on its fourteenth night, or are you the sun?

Whatever you are, I swear to God, you are incomparable!

Your hair brushes your shoulders like the clouds floating above

And your eyes are intoxicating like an overflowing glass of wine.
