jainrohit Posted August 23, 2012 Share Posted August 23, 2012 background saki is a persian word for a girl / boy who serves wine , but in ghazal terminology , its the epitome of beauty , intoxication , zeal and pursuit of love , loneliness and everything else . many wonderful and immortal ghazals have been woven around the theme of saki . the ideal place for a (lesser mystic ) ghazal poet is the tavern , where his companion is loneliness , glass of wine and saki .... perhaps , the greatest definition of saki is described in a famous song of hindi banaaya hé mainé tujhé apna saaki rahé kis tarah phir mere hosh baaki (having made you my saaki , how can my worldly consciousness be left ??) Like a homeless Bird searching for a tree , saki To quench my sorrows i have come to thee , saki Which one is more scarlet ? Your lips or this red wine dark past ! red has been color of my glee , saki Adrift i was , extended pause , mundane was life Now embrace me like wind does to the sea , saki Your glances make my heart dance till it gets tired Pardon my tender heart , accept its plea , saki Fortune never favored me , i have been tormented my hopes are on you , please no treachery , saki Let your golden locks dangle on your full moon face let them dance , with your fragrance , set them free , saki "rohit " is mad , he wanted to write something else ; Your beauty makes many ghalibs awry , saki .....
