Ghair Ke Hath Mein Hai Johar-e-Aurat Ki Namood
The spirit of man can display its self without obligation to another,
But the spirit of woman cannot fully reveal its self without another’s help.
Atisheen, Lazzat-e-Takhleeq Se Hai Iss Ka Wujood
Her desire is the secret of her fever of sorrow:
Her existence is full of fire with the wish to create.
Garam Issi Aag Se Hai Maarka-e-Bood-o-Nabood
Here is the fire which opens the secrets of life;
That is the heat which sustains the struggle between to be and not to be.
Nahin Mumkin Magar Iss Uqda-e-Mushkil Ki Kushood!
I too feel sad about the oppression of women,
But this knotty problem cannot be resolved.
