MUSLIM SALEEM’S FAMOUS COUPLETS
Zindagi ki tarah bikhar jaayen……kyun ham aise jiyen ki mar jaayen
kar di meeras waarison ke sipurd….zindagi kis ke naam mar jaayen
rooh ke karb ka kuchh mudaawa no tha….
doctor neend ki goiyan likh gaya
wo dekhne mein ab bhi tanawar darakht hai
haalanke waqt khod chuka hai jaden tamam.
