    That is deep!
    If this is your personal feeling than may God help you and if this is just an artistic piece of certain ‘painful’ Pushtu words than fine.

  2. let me try to arrange, translation is over to A5.

    Zama Jwand da Azala
    Sargardan de…

    zRha me JaReegi
    Saah mein bandeegi

    BTW, aadil, do you remember NEELI JHEEL in an URDU text book by Shafiq-ur-Rehman. Things on the other side (of this door) are not very different ……

    1. Yep, I remember the short story with the moral ‘everything that glitters in not gold’ .. a good one .. you’re true but what to do with a curious heart intent on steppin in to the forbidden realms πŸ˜‰

        Yes, it was in our text book too πŸ™‚

        It just came to mind with your reminder but I don’t remember the plot much.

  3. alaka, we need to arrange a trip to Murree or Nathia Gali; somewhere to the colder part… che aab o hava de badala shee… suna hay all the beauties are visiting the places aaj kal.
    You may invite MZ & Co… mein Azure ko thudday maar k le aaonga. πŸ™‚

    1. A good idea actually but we’ll need to wait for it; am jumbled in so many things in and out. Will love to go there somewhere in August and the company of all four of us would just be amazing I guess πŸ™‚

  4. yes, showsha choRe do abhi se… get as many folks pakka as possible. goongay ko bhi bula lo. πŸ™‚
    mein apnay 2 weeks k bed-rest se 2/3 din deduct kar loonga. πŸ™‚

    1. Ah .. goonga! he’s still in the far off lands; I wish he was here then I wouldn’t be as bored in isb as I am these days 😦
      Hey, bed rest? sacha mucha ya office say chutti ka bahana? πŸ˜‰
      Hows you doing with your health? ..

  5. Aadil, in the same spirit… : )

    da dunyagai karoona
    khatam shval na khatmeegi

    Ya khuddaya
    sail la me zRa keegi

    kho chaabi vraka da
    da darvaza ba sanga kulaveegi

    1. alaka ta kho poora shayer okhatey! πŸ˜€ hahahah .. you know what I’m working on a booklet of translations from Pushto which might complete in two or three months. Will invite you for its opening ceremony.

  6. Alhamdolillah


    This was really deep. Sometimes from your posts I feel that you are not hopeful and in pain, I meannot necessarily feeling it, Im sorry, but… hopeless of Allah’s mercy as I said earlier..

    Think that He’s cradling you, and forget about the mistakes you’ve done. InshaAllah you’ll be writing more happy happy stuff soon πŸ˜€
