26th : #Tarahi Mushaira -

The misra is
The Tarahi Mushaira is a particular form where a misra is given, and poets compose their ghazals using that misra and the behar (rhythmic metre) of the misra. 
 make it a grand success


"Ye mulk humara hai, ye mulk tumhara hai"

The radio will be hai
qaafiya will be ara
guide for tarahi 

(Giving links of previous #tarahi as well -

27th : #mehman

28th : #NazeerAkbarabadi

29th : #AdeemHashmi

30th : #mitti

31st : #Seemab Akbarabadi ( death anniversary)

NOTE :Radeef is the word/phrase that is repeated at the end of the second line in every shair. In your example, it'd be "yaad hai."
Both lines of the very first sher (matla), usually end in the same radeef.

Qaafia is the pattern of word(s) that rhyme and come just before the radeef in the second line of a sher. i.e. zamaanaa, dabaanaa, lagaanaa

chupkay chupkay raat din aansu bahaana yaad hai
ham ko ab tak aashqi ka wo zamaanaa yaad hai

baahzaaraan iztiraab-o-sadhzaaraan ishtiyaaq 
tujhsay wo pahlay pahal dil kaa lagaanaa yaad hai 

tujhsay miltay hi wo baybaak ho jaanaa meraa 
aur teraa daanton main wo ungli dabaanaa yaad hai

#Tarahi Mushaira on 26th January

What is Tarahi Mushaira?
In Tarahi Mushaira one line (misra-e-tarah) of a ghazal is provided by the organizers and the participants write their own shairs based on the same.
Misra-e-tarah for this Tarahi Mushaira is provided by @AshishJog

"Ye mulk humara hai, ye mulk tumhara hai"

Participants are requested to tweet their shairs based on the above misra-e-tarah. The shair should follow the same Qaafiya, Radeed and Beher. Please add hashtags #Tarahi and #Shair to your tweets.
Qaafiya, Radeef and Beher of the misra-e-tarah are explained below.

Qaafiya - "Tumhara"

Participants can use both "ara" (such as humara, sitara etc.)  as qaafiya.
Radeef - "Hai"

The given misra is set in Beher-e-Mazaara Musamman Akhrab. The arrangement of Arkaan in this Beher is as follows-

Maf-uu-lu   Faa-i-laa-tun  Maf-uu-lu  Faa-i-laa-tun
2-2-1          2-1-2-2           2-2-1        2-1-2-2
"Saare jahaa'n se achchha Hindostaa'n humaara" by Allama Iqbal is  set in this Beher.
This is the poem by Ashish Jog from which the misra is taken.
The description is also given by him.
