زندگی ژار تو ہوسیکو

بو بے قرار تو ہوسیکو

مہ سم موخ دش ہیہ دنیا

اچی اقرار تو ہوسیکو


Zindagi Xhar Tu Hosiko;

Bo Beqarar Tu Hosiko;

Ma sum Mokh Dish Haya Dunia:

Achi Iqrar tu Hosiko"


In these lines, the poet depicts the bitterness of life. He says to his lover that when she smiles, his life becomes so bitter that he gets rid of his own life. When he admire her beauty, the entire world gets angry with him.

Although, in all his lyrics, he depicts the result of love and the bitterness of lonely life.

Javed Hayat is a great pioneer of Khowar language in Gilgit-Baltistan. He devoted a long service full of struggle commitment. His efforts yielded fruitful results and he establish a Khowar Community Anjuman-e-Tarraqui-e-Khowar Ghizer, which is a unit of Anjuman-e-Tarraqui-e-Khowar Chitral.
