Let me open the door ..

I have few friends who are fluent in Urdu. One of them is Prakash Makan born in undivided India and now based in Bangalore. He is a close friend and also partner in Clover Greens. Quoting below one of his favorite couplets.

Jaam* Hathon me rahe, aakhree dham thak,
Yeh khwaahish hai meri,
Naa muhtaaj* banoon kisi kaa,
Yeh khwaahish hai meri,
Aur jab maut khat khataye dharvaaza mera
Khudh ut ke Kholun ye khwaahish hai meri,

*Jaam : drink, *muhtaaj : dependent
