Nuktacheen Hai Gham-E-Dil



नुक्ता-चीं है, ग़म-ए-दिल, She is (such) a critic, (that) heartache
उसको सुनाए न बने [x2] doesn't get to be recited to her [x2]
क्या बने बात, जहाँ Why would a word succeed, where
बात बनाए न बने [x2] a manufactured word/matter wouldn't? [x2]
नुक्ता-चीं है, ग़म-ए-दिल … She is (such) a critic, (that) heartache …


ग़ैर फिरता है लिए यूँ तेरे ख़त को कि अगर [x2] The other wanders around carrying your letter in such a way, that if … [x2]
कोई पूछे कि यह क्या है someone asked: what is this?
तो छुपाए न बने [x2] then he would not be ableto hide it [x2]
नुक्ता-चीं है, ग़म-ए-दिल … She is (such) a critic, (that) heartache …


मैं बुलाता तो हूँ उसको मगर ऐ जज़्बा-ए-दिल [x2] I do call her, but oh! the heart's passion … [x2]
उस पे बन जाए कुछ ऐसी कि बिन आए न बने [x2] … may (it) make it to her a little, so that she cannot go without it! [x2]
कि बिन आए न बने … she cannot go without it …
नुक्ता-चीं है, ग़म-ए-दिल … She is (such) a critic, (that) heartache …


इश्क़ पर ज़ोर नहीं है, यह वह आतिश, ग़ालिब … [x2] There is no control over love, this is that fire, Ghalib, … [x2]
कि लगाए न लगे … that starts with difficulty
और बुझाए न बने [x2] and doesn't get to be extinguished [x2]
नुक्ता-चीं, है ग़म-ए-दिल, She is (such) a critic, (that) heartache …
उसको सुनाए न बने [x2] doesn't get to be recited to her [x2]
