Recently, watched Umrao Jaan, and other than being mesmerized by the love story, I also fell in love with the Urdu poetry in it, this gem is one of them.
Hum nay chora tha zamana jinhe panay kay liye,
lo, wohi chor chalay humko zamane kay liye
~ Umrao Jaan (2006)
The one whom I left my world for,
Has left me for the world.
