This is a GHazal by Ameer Minai (sung by Jagjit and Chitra Singh). It is very similar to the following GHazal by GHalib: "meharbaaN ho ke bulaa lo mujhe chaaho jis waqt maiN gayaa waqt nahiN hooN ke phir aa bhi na sakooN" The confusion is caused by the fact that shers from both these GHazals were used by Jagjit and Chitra Singh in one of their albums. In the words of U.V.Ravindra, the GHazal which "...has been attributed [completely] to Ameer Minai in the Jagjit Chitra album is actually a PAIR of hamradeef ghazals. Jagjit and Chitra apparently (used to) revel in singing this kind of due(t/l). In this particular case the pair of Ghazals is by Mirza Ghalib+Ameer Minai, with Jagjit sing(h)ing [;-)] the Ameer Minai part and Chitra crooning along the original Mirza Ghalib Ghazal."
