The Present Moment
First Rays of the Sun
These songs express admiration for the magnificence of nature, or virtues of a saint, or awesome qualities in one's beloved.
The poet poses an innocent question: Who is the painter of lush green valleys, majestic mountains, blue skies, tall trees and beautiful flowers that bloom in spring? While expressing joy and awe at the splendor of nature, he wonders whose imagination it is!
This duet showcases Agape or spiritual love. The singers take turns in admiring their beloved through a series of beautiful metaphors. Each verse is also a conversation with divinity.
The poet's beloved is a manifestation of his dreams :)
A beautiful ghazal in appreciation of one's beloved. Sung by Talat Mahmood in 1952.
