{183,14}

karne lagaa pusht-e chashm-e naazuk
sote se u;Thaa jo chau;Nk kar raat

1) she began to give coquettish sidelong glances
2) when she awoke, with a start, from sleep last night

 

Notes:

S. R. Faruqi:

pusht-e chashm-e naazuk karnaa = to show off sidelong glances and coquetries

First of all, look at the supreme idiom pusht-e chashm-e naazuk karnaa . Only three or four poets have made use of it, and no one at all has placed it within an episode the way Mir has.

This is the third verse of a five-verse 'verse-set'; for a full discussion, see {183,12}.

Note for grammar fans: The form sote se would nowadays of course be sone se .
