    apparently by akbar ilahabadi:

    jo bat munasib hai woh hasil nahiN kartey
    jo apni gireh meiN hai usey kho bhi rahey haiN
    bey ilm bhi hum log haiN ghaflat bhi hai taari
    afsos, ke andhe bhi haiN aur so bhi rahey haiN

    we do not seek or attain that thing that is suitable (or necessary) for us
    and that which we already have - we are losing it
    we are uneducated and are heedless, careless
    it is unfortunate that [we] are blind and on top of it, [we] are in a slumber.
