One of the interesting theme in urdu shayari is the after effect of “failed love “ or behavior of “mashook/mashooka ”after the death of the unlucky soul.
The sher is usually very visual .
Here are two shers by fan kar : riyaz khairabadi
“ham dil mein khush ke sabz-ye-turbat hara hua ,
Voh is ada se roye ki palke bhi nam naheen !”
I had become very hopeful and happy that the grass around my “grave “wou ld become more green ,
But he/she cried ( when he /she visited my grave as a courtesy) in such a way that there were no tears even to make the eyes moist.( forget about profound grief which may result in lots of tears. )
Sabz-e-turbat : grass near ( my ) grave .
“Haath gustakh hai …uth jayein na ye daman par ,
Bach ke niklein meri markad ( grave )se guzarnewalo !”
Oh all those who are passing by my grave,
Please be careful…
My hands are bit “gustakh” …they may catch hold of your “daman”
( if your daman is caught than I may not easily leave )
Note : may sound spooky to some, but has dimensional depths in these kind of shayri….
