ANIS AND SHAKESPEARE - A COMPARISON by Syed Ghulam Iman(publication 1950)
MIR ANIS 1220 H to 1292 H - 72 years

Written in old age.
Piri ke valvalemein, khiza ki bahar hein
(this is the exuberance of old age, this is the spring of autumn)

Sir Asman Jah of Hyderabad stipulated that if Anis recited marasiya wearing Hyderabad pagri, he would offer him Rs: 5000/- a great sum at that time. Anis declined.

Panegyrics are written for living one, and elegies are meant to extol the virtues of the dead.

Har katraho nachiz, gauher ho nahi jata
Jiske pas asa ho, use Musa nahi khete
Har hat ko aakil yadbeza nahi khete
Halat pahan ke bhi na razalat ki boo gayi.

Shakespeare: 'MAN'

What a piece of work is man!
How noble in reason! How infinite in faculties!
In form and moving, how express and admirable!
In action how like an angel! In apprehension,
How like a god! The beauty of the world!
Paragon of animals! and yet to me,
What is this quintessence of dust.

Harja teri kudrat ke hein lakho jalvein
Heran hu ke do ankhein se kya kya dekhu
Gulshan mein saba ko justazu teri hein
Bulbul ki juban pe guftagu teri hein
Har rang mein hein zalva teri kudrat ka
Jis fuul ko sunghta hun bu teri hein.
Virtue itself turns vice, when misapplied. Sahekspeare.

Nure khuda ki madhe bashar ki hein kya mazal
Phoncha kahi n khel malak ka jahan khayal

Brevity is the soul of wit

Bas ei anis taweel se behtar hein ikhteyar

LIFE
Why what is pomp, rule, reign, but earth and dust,
And, live we how we can, die we must.

Gafil tuje kyu khawais duniya e dani hein
Paiband zameen har koi darvesh o gani hein

Kis bag pein asab khiza a nahi zata
Gul konsa khilta hein jo murza nahin jata.

Resignation and patience

Hota agar n katl to aati n kya azal
Gar aaj bach gaye to yehi marhala hei kal
Rehne ki yeh jaa na taharne ka hei mahal
Duniya mein sabr se nahi bahter koi amal.

We cannot but obey
The powers above us - could I rage and roar
As doth the sea she lies in, yet the end
Must be as it is. Perciles - Prince of Tyre (Shakespear)

Hum log to majboor hei, mukhtar vahi hei
Mushkil mein garibo ka madadgar vahi hein
