Hindi Bhi Farangi Ka Maqallad, Ajmi Bhi!
The death of fancy is so widely spread
That men of Pers and Ind by Franks are led.
Hko Baithe Hain Mashriq Ka Suroor-e-Azali Bhi
I feel sad that Behzads of modern time
Have lost Eastʹs rapture sweet and joy sublime.
San’at Tujhe Ati Hai Purani Bhi, Nayi Bhi
O artist, of your talents I can tell,
You know the ancient crafts and new so well.
Aaeena-e-Fitrat Mein Dikha Apni Khudi Bhi!
You have portrayed many a natural sight,
Display your self in Natureʹs mirror bright.
