Yes, dhoop kinaray

Just to throw my own two cents to the post by Adnan, there's a rubai by Faiz Ahmed Faiz called Raat yun dil mein, which goes something like:

Raat yun dil mein teri khoi hui yaad aayee
Jaisay veeranay mein chupke se bahar aa jaaye
Jaisay sehraon mein haulay say chalay baad-e-naseem
Jaisay beemar ko bewajah qarar aajaaye

No wonder its no longer than that. A piece of art indeed! And no I'm not missing anyone in Istanbul. Its a wonder why I couldnt find any mp3 for this song through google. It must be out there somewhere.

There seems to be a mis-match in the first sentence of this stanza. The actual wording that you mentioned and the one I got from another guy are different from the one in the actual song. Anyway, its one hell of a listening pleasure.
