 Best 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
