ASAD [9]

These sh'ura (poets; plural of shaa'ir) can sometimes be rather cute. They offer an excuse just for the sake of it knowing full well that no one will buy it. Here's how the poet Abdul Hameed 'Adam' explains his "shamelessness".

शायद मुझे निकाल के पछता रहे हों आप:
महफ़िल में इस ख़याल से फिर आ गया हूँ मैं!
shaayad mujhe nikaal ke pachhtaa rahe hoN aap
mahfil meN is Khayaal se phir aa gayaa hooN maiN

- Abhay.
ASAD _also_ stands for "A Sher A Day" !

I am not at all sure, but I remember this she'r like this:

shaayad mujhe nikaal ke pachhataa rahe *ho.n* aap

Could you please check?

A wonderful sh'er indeed, whether it's "ho.n" or "hai.n" :)

did put a smile on my face.

I checked. It is indeed "hoN" in the first line, not "haiN". Corrected. Thanks, Vinay.
