Just a thought...

"A pen is mightier than a sword"....just imagine if someone forgets to put the space between 'pen' and 'is'....

Gardish

The earth about the sun,
The Sun about the galaxy,
The galaxy about the unseen.
A cosmic dance of the lovers,
Unfolding before my eyes.

Look up there,
A thousand majnuns are blazing in the night
With unceasing frenzy,
In search of what isn't there...

There is nothing around here but,
A thousand moths fluttering about a black flame

P.S.I forgot Captain Planet,but he's just too sad...

Naqsh Faryadi!

Hi,

You may have noticed that I ve changed my blog title to 'Naqsh Faryadi' and I presume that most of you would be wondering,why?

Well,'Naqsh faryadi' is an allusion to the first verse of ghalib's urdu diwan

Naqsh faryadi hai kis ki shokhi-e-tehreer ka,
Kaghazi hai pairhan har paikar-e-tasveer ka


I m sure that raised more questions than answers!...Here's the translation & the explanation...

Translation:

Against whose playful writings are the words complainants?
Made of paper attire is the countenance of every image


Well,the two key words are 'naqsh' and 'faryadi'.Naqsh means 'words'/inscriptions and 'faryadi' means a plaintiff/complainant.So it's the words who are complaining against the nature of this universe,asking why was it created in such a mischievous fashion.And that sums up the very essence of this 'blog'.....

If you want a detailed explanation of this hauntingly beautiful verse,i suggest
visiting Fran Pritchett's link....it'll be worth the effort
