Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi

One of my favourite lines...........
considering the fact that im a newbie to urdu poetry.....

hazaaroN KHwahishaiN 'eisee ke har KHwahish pe dam nikle
bohot nikle mere armaaN lekin phir bhee kam nikle

Dare kyooN mera qaatil kya rahega uskee gardan par
wo KHooN, jo chashm-e-tar se 'umr bhar yooN dam_ba_dam nikle

nikalna KHuld se aadam ka sunte aayaiN haiN lekin
bohot be_aabru hokar tere kooche se ham nikle

bharam khul jaaye zaalim tere qaamat ki daraazee ka
agar is turra-e-pur_pech-o-KHam ka pech-o-KHam nikle

magar likhwaaye koee usko KHat, to hamse likhawaaye
huee subah aur ghar se kaan par rakhkar qalam nikle

huee is daur meiN mansoob mujhse baada_aashaamee
phir aaya wo zamaana, jo jahaaN se jaam-e-jam nikle

huee jinse tavaqqo KHastagee kee daad paane kee
wo hamse bhee ziyaada KHasta-e-teGH-e-sitam nikle

mohabbat meiN naheeN hai farq jeene aur marne kaa
usee ko dekh kar jeete haiN jis kaafir pe dam nikle

zara kar jor seene par ki teer-e-pursitam nikle
jo wo nikle to dil nikle, jo dil nikle to dam nikle

KHuda ke waaste parda na kaabe se uThaa zaalim
kaheeN 'eisa na ho yaaN bhee wohee kaafir sanam nikle

kahaaN maiKHaane ka darwaaza 'GHalib' aur kahaaN waaiz
par itana jaante haiN kal wo jaata tha ke ham nikle

aaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!
So much suqoon .................

Ghanta !

yes..the familiar expression of dissapointment and anger that one hears in every nook and corner in India er...North India :-) !

am quite pissed with myself over the haphhazard works that i manage to get into and get out of in the past few weeks ....

of course the foreboding sense or you could maybe call it a tinge of arrogance is there......the sense of dooming bravado which one could identify with frank abagnale is there....something almost like 'catch me if you can '.

was bragging in the morning to a colleague how i bshitted my way thru a ppt presented to a client whom everybody places on the pedestal .

ofcourse i could summon the powers at my will ....but for how long ?

and how sustainable is this instant unkarma gonna last ?

as my dad says after one of those never ending question(airre) loops of mine :-)

allah kareem !

Vertu ?

ok not gonna rant about the filthy expensive nokia phone.......
jus puts my present state of affairs in a better perspective........
couple of very interesting albeit confusing options in front of me ......

a job thats too good from all angles except the remunerative part
a job thats quite okayish with a great pay check
a venture idea waiting to explode but in chronic diffused state owing to my own in decisiveness......................

vertu ?

Im speechless...........

"As he stared at her ample bosom, he daydreamed of the dual Stromberg carburetors in his vintage Triumph Spitfire, highly functional yet pleasingly formed, perched prominently on top of the intake manifold, aching for experienced hands, the small knurled caps of the oil dampeners begging to be inspected and adjusted as described in chapter seven of the shop manual."
