Meray dushmano say kaho

Meray dushmano say kaho koi
Kisi gehri chaal kay ehtamaan ka silsila hi fazool hai
Ke shikast yun bhi qabool hai
Kabhi hoslay jo missal thay, wo nahin rahay

Meray harf harf kay jism per
Jo maani kay par-o-baal thay, wo nahin rahay
Kabhi titliyon, kabhi jugnu’on say sajaye phirtay khayal thay
Wo nahin rahay

Meray dushmanon say kaho koi
Woh jo shaam sher-e-wisaal main
Koi roshni si liye huay kisi lub peh jitney sawal thay
Wo nahin rahay

Jo wafa kay baab main wehshaton kay kamal thay, wo nahin rahay
Meray dushmanon say kaho koi
Woh kabhi jo ehd-e-nishat main
Mujhay khud peh itna ghuroor tha, kaheen kho gia
Woh jo fatehana khumar main
Meray saray khwab nihaal thay
Woh nahin rahay

Kisi dasht-e-lashkar-e-sham main
Meray sur-khuroo mah-o-saal thay, wo nahin rahay
Ke bus ab to dil ki zuban per
Faqat aik qissa-e-haal hai ………
Jo Nidhaal hai
Jo gaye dinon ka malaal hai
Meray dushmanon say kaho koi

Ye jo wakt hay

Ye jo wakt hay Meray Sheher par...
Kayeee Moasmon say Roka hoa...

Issey izn de ke Ye Chal Parey...
Meray Asmaan sai Door ho..

Koye Chand Chehra,

Koye Aftaab Zahoor ho...

Keh Nawah-e-Chashm-e-Khiyaal main..
Woh-jo Khuwaab they, woh Dhuan hoayee..

Wo jo Aag thi wo nahii Rahee
Jo yakeen they,
Wo Guma.n hoay..

Koye Dhund hey ,Jisey daikhtey
Meri Aankh Barf si hoo gayee..

Meri Samt usko Uchaal Dey,..!

Divya

Divya

By Yashpal Translated by Anand


A novel about a woman determined to lead life her way in a male-dominated society. The story is set against the backdrop of a struggle for supremacy between Hindu and Buddhist ideologies in 1st century BC India

Divya is the story of a woman’s struggle to lead her own life. The story is set against the background of the conflict for supremacy between Hindu and Buddhist ideologies in India in the 1st century BC. Ancient India comes alive in all its glory and vigour in this novel by Yashpal translated into English by Anand. It has been hailed as one of the great historical novels in Indian literature. When it was first published in Hindi in 1945, it caused widespread furor because of the author’s portrayal of Divya as a woman who refuses to live by the rules of a male society.

Divya, the granddaughter of the Brahmin chief justice of the Madra republic, is the most talented dancer of the state. Prithusen, Divya’s lover, is an ambitious youth, whose father the merchant prince of Madra was once a slave. Prithusen is declared as the champion of martial arts, but the Brahmin aristocracy refuses to accept him as their equal in spite of his talent and wealth.

Divya, pregnant with Prithusen’s child leaves her grandfather’s house. She is refused shelter in a Buddhist monastery because, as a woman dependent on her family, she does not have the permission of her father or her husband. In desperation, she throws herself and her child into a river. The child is drowned but she is rescued and begins a new life as Anshumala, the chief courtesan and artist of Shursen.

Divya’s repute as the dancer reaches her former teacher Mallika, the chief courtesan of Madra. Mallika, in her old age, is looking for a worthy successor, and travels to Shursen to meet Anshumala. She is surprised and overjoyed when she recognises Divya, and takes her back to Madra.

The Brahmin aristocracies of Madra are now the rulers. The Brahmin chief, Rudradhir, refuses to allow a Brahmin girl to be the chief courtesan. He asks her to become his wife and the first lady of the state. Divya turns him down because she does not want to lose her independence. By losing herself she cannot remain alive, she says. Prithusen, her former lover now a Buddhist monk, offers her the shelter of his religion. Divya again rejects the offer saying “A woman’s religion is not Nirvana, but creation.” Marish, a philosopher who has no worldly possessions and who is an old acquaintance and admirer of Divya, offers his companionship as a male to an independent female. Divya accepts.

When the book first came out, the assertions by Divya such as “the mistress of a noble family is not a free woman, she is not independent like a disreputable courtesan,” outraged many of Yashpal’s contemporaries. But over the years, a core of younger critics and scholars continued to stand by Yashpal’s revolutionary ideas.

As Kamleshwar, the well-known Hindi writer and television personality said in a television interview, “Divya proves that Yashpal’s first and foremost concern is the tragedy of unequal status of women ... Yashpal was not just a revolutionary who fought for India’s independence; his ideas and his contribution to Indian literature were equally revolutionary.”

Bernard Queenan, a three-time winner of the prestigious Nemo literary contest run from Oxford University, was closely associated with the translation of Divya. Queenan said that, “Yashpal’s literary persona is reminiscent of George Orwell, with whom he has some obvious affinities. Here again is the gritty realism of life at the level of the street, in all its dust and grime. Here too is the biting satire of the society of his time as seen through the savage eye of the uncompromising non-conformist. And here are the consuming passion for social justice, the conviction of the ultimate worth of the individual, and the creeping shadow of disillusionment with the dictates of any doctrinaire orthodoxy ... Divya is an Orwellian fable or morality, in which the tribulations of a central figure underline the pernicious forces — religious, social and political — that attempt, but fail, to stifle the aspirations of the human spirit.” In many ways, Yashpal was ahead of his time. Discourse on women’s rights and their status in society are hot topics in India and elsewhere today. But Yashpal came out in support of women’s right over their bodies from his very first writings. He supported birth control and family planning in his novel Dada Comrade, published in 1939, when such things were barely talked about. Similarly, he also raised the issue of social ostracism and discrimination against backward/scheduled classes and untouchables in Divya over 60 years ago

As the most outstanding writer of post-Premchand period, “Yashpal’s work has historical importance … He successfully combines politics and psychology with social realism, the two distinct trends of post-Premchand era,” said Asaghar Wajahat, Hindi writer and Head of Hindi Department at Jamia Millia in New Delhi

While Divya received critical acclaim, criticisms were levelled at it on various fronts. Despite the author’s assertion that “The basis for Divya is history, but history coloured by imagination,” many contemporaries of Yashpal could not stomach his not so-glorified portrayal of the classical period of India’s history. Many scholars found in it historical anomalies relating to political and social systems prevailing at the time. Some questioned the mixing of Greek and Indian cultures to the extent and in the regions as depicted in the novel. Others were critical of the description of clothes and festival rites as described in the novel.

Unlike most historical novels, the main character in Divya is not any famous historical figure or event. It is an example of the author’s commitment to social realism, and of his perspective on history that analyses the circumstances and issues in the context of the situation prevailing at the time. Yashpal in Divya rejects both the inequalities of the Hindu caste-system, its inherent contradictions about the position and role of a woman in the society as well as the deterministic nature of Buddhism for the realities and needs of the palpable world. He said, “History is not a matter of belief, but of analysis. History is the self-examination by man of his past.”

Pakistani readers will find it interesting that Sagal, the city where most of the action takes place in the novel and where Divya was born and lived, is the modern city of Sialkot now.


Some clicking lines from the book, these lines show Divy's responce over the offers of her 3 suiters...

In a voice devoid of any emotion, Divya asked the Acharya, “What further orders await this unfortunate creature?”

Sitting down on the mat spread by the guard, the Acharya said, “Devi, your place is not that of a dancercourtesan. You are of high birth. Your place is that of the mistress of a noble family. I am here to offer you the place of the First Lady in the house of the Acharyas. Devi, oblige me by accepting the offer.”

Her eyes fixed steadily the face of the Acharya, Divya replied, “Acharya, the place of the mistress and of the first lady of a noble family, is a rare honour. This destitute woman bows her head before the offer of such a high place. But Acharya, the mistress of a noble family is not a free woman; she is not independent like a disreputable courtesan. Learned Acharya, the honour given to the noble bride, the respect given to the noble matron, and the authority given to the First Lady are there because of the man who gives her protection. It is not an honour due to the woman; it is an honour due to the powerful man who owns her. Arya, this honour and respect can be obtained by a woman only by willingly surrendering her inner self.” After a few moment’s silence, she continued, “Learned sir, what is left of the woman who has given up her self? The Acharya must forgive this humble servant. Even though destitute, she wishes to live independently. By losing her self she cannot remain alive.”

Just then, the bhikshu approached the seat of the Acharya, and said,

“Devi, I, Bhikshu Prithusen, a devotee of the Buddha, am here to receive into the bosom of the Buddha the woman oppressed by society.”

Divya’s eyes opened wide as she heard and recognised the voice of the russetbhikshu standing in front of her. A shudder ran through her body. She heaved a deep sigh and sat motionless, looking at the face of the bhikshu.

Bhikshu Prithusen raised his hand in benediction and said, “Devi, by the mercy of the Buddha, it has been possible for you to realise that attachment and infatuation are only illusions. Devi, peace does not lie in riches, nor in prowess, or in the gratification of the senses. Everlasting peace lies only in Nirvana. Devi, no sorrow of the world can mar the beatitude that lies in Nirvana. The unhappy ones of the world, oppressed by society, find peace in the shelter of the Buddha, in the shelter of the True Faith, in the shelter of the Monastic Order. Come into the sanctuary of the Infinite Mercy.” …

Her eyes lit up again. In a voice trembling with emotion, she said, “Honoured sir, what is the position of a woman in the religion of the bhikshu?”

In a calm voice the bhikshu replied, “Devi, the bhikshu’s purpose is Nirvana. The woman represents temptation. As such, she is a hindrance in the path to Nirvana and, therefore, has to be given up.”

“Honoured sir, then follow your religion of Nirvana,” Divya replied in a slow but firm voice. “A woman’s religion is not Nirvana but creation. Let the bhikshu permit her to follow her own path.”

When his chance came to speak, the traveler from the East drew near and addressing Divya, said, ,

“I am Marish. I have come all the way from Mathurapuri to be near you, Devi.”

Once again Divya’s eyes opened wide and lit up with wonder and curiosity. The traveller, covered with dust from head to foot, said, “Devi, I cannot offer you the place of the First Lady in a royal palace; I cannot give you the assurance of the eternal joys of Nirvana. I live in the midst of the joys and sorrows of this world. Experience and reflection are my only assets. I can only offer to share those feelings and experiences with you. I am a traveler along the world’s rough and dusty roads. On that journey, impelled by the desire for your womanhood, I offer my manhood to you. I want an exchange of support. In this fleeting life I can only offer a feeling of fulfillment.”

He paused for breath, and added, “By reproducing my kind, I can try to add another link to the chain of human continuity.”

Divya sat quietly for a few moments, lost in thought. Then no longer needing the support of the wall, she stretched out both her hands towards Marish. In a tremulous voice, she said, “Grant me the abiding shelter of your arms, Arya.”

Fear of Public Speaking


It is said that public speaking is the thing people fear the most, yet sooner or later most people will have to speak in front of a group at work. Whether training new employees, giving a presentation to management or even conducting an interview, being an effective speaker can help you get ahead at work.

Consider this:

At any public speaking event, each participent gives a speech and is evaluated by audience. Some speakers do a lot of research for their speeches, while others focus less on the research and more on their delivery. Over the years the audiences have been consistent in their evaluations.

So, who do you think rates higher?
A. A speaker with fabulous information and so-so delivery
B. A speaker with fabulous delivery and so-so information

The answer is "B." Of course, the ideal situation is to have both fabulous information and fabulous delivery but, for many audiences, delivery is the most critical factor. Poor delivery can make the most interesting topic sound boring, while excellent delivery can make even a dull topic come alive.

Here are four traits of successful speakers, followed by a number of ways you can develop these traits.

Confidence:

Good speakers may sometimes feel nervous, but they try not to let it show. Speakers look and sound more confident when they make eye contact with the audience, move naturally, use audiovisual equipment effectively and speak fluidly (avoiding too many "uhs" and "ums").

Credibility:

This is an audience's perception of how believable a speaker is. To be credible, a speaker must be seen as someone who is knowledgeable about the topic. However, this does not mean someone who is a "know-it-all."

Enthusiasm:

Magnetic speakers are enthusiastic about their topic, and they share that fervor with their audience through variety and energy in their voice, gestures, and body movements. Other terms that can be applied to these speakers are "high energy" and "passionate."

Ease:

Natural speakers don't lecture, they are at ease. Even when speaking in front of an audience of hundreds, they speak as if they were having a conversation with a group of friends. Other terms that may be applied to these speakers are "real" or "down-to-earth."


Ways to Improve Your Skills


• As with any skill, one of the best ways to improve is by just doing it. With speaking, this means getting yourself in front of as many audiences as possible.
• When there are opportunities for informal speaking at work -- such as introducing a new employee, volunteer for the job.
• If you're presenting a training program at work, make sure you ask audience members to give you feedback by filling out an evaluation form.
• When possible, consider taping yourself practicing or giving presentations.
• You can then see or hear for yourself the areas where you may need to improve.

Seek Not My Heart


Oh gentle winds beneath moonlit skies,
Do not you hear my heartfelt cries?

Below the branches, here about,
Do not you sense my fear and doubt?
Side glistening rivers, sparkling streams,
Do not you hear my woeful screams?

Upon the meadows, touched with dew,
Do not you see my hearts askew?
Beneath the thousand twinkling stars,
Do not you feel my jagged scars?

Seek not my mournful heart kind breeze,
For you'll not find it 'amongst these trees.

It's scattered 'cross the moonlit skies,
Accompanied by heartfelt sighs.
It's drifting o'er the gentle rain,
A symbol of my silent pain.

It's buried 'neath the meadow fair,
Conjoined with all the sorrow there.
It's lost among the stars this night,
Too far to ease my quiet fright.

No gentle winds, seek not my heart,
For simply ... it has torn apart.

Love


"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it does not keep record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices when truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever"

(The Holy Bible; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a, NLT Version)

Mohabat


Duniya main buhat kam log aisay hotay jin say aap mohabbat kartay hain...unn say bhi kam log aisay hotay hain jo aap say mohabbat kartay hain...

(In "Hasil" by Umaira Ahmed)

Wajood aur Zaat


"Har aik ko bhikari bana kar rastay me bithaya hua hay,
or har aik khud ko malik samjhta hay.jab tak thokar nahi lagti,
jab tak ghutnoon par nahi girta apni aukaat ka pata hi nahi chaltaa.
wojood kay naseeb main hay bhikari hona bus Zaat bhikari nahi ho sakti. Wojood k muqadar me mangana hay Zaat ka wasaf daina hay.
Main to kia BB! sab bhikari hain.Aj nahi to Kal, Kal nahi to parson
kabhi na kabhi bhikari banna hi parta hay.Mangana hi hota hay.
Koi Ishq mangata hay koi Duniya or jo yeh nahi mangta woh
Khuahish Ka Khatam hona mangata hay."


(In "Shehr-e-Zaaat" by Umaira Ahmed)

Realization


Allah humein kissi moqe par yaad aye na aye ,do moqoon par zaroor yaad aata hai aaik jab ko koi cheez chahiye hoo ya phir koi cheez chen jae"
.......................................

Zindagi main hum kabhi na kabhi uss muqaam per aajatay hain.. jahan saray
rishtay khatam ho jatay hain.. wahan sirf hum hotay hai aur Allah hota hai.. koi
maan baap, koi behan bhaii, koi dost nahi hota.. phir humain pata chalta hai k
humaray pairon talay koi zameen hai na sar pe koi asmaan.. buss sirf aik Allah
hi hai jo is khala mei bhi humain thamay huay hai.. phir pata chalta hai k hum
zameen per padi miiti k dhair main aik zarray ya darakkht per lagay aik patay se
ziada wuqat nahi rakhtay. phir pata chalta k huamray honay ya na honay se sirf
humain farq perta hai.. sirf humara kirdar khatam hojata hai.. kainaat mein koi
tabdeeli nahi atti .. kisi cheez par kooi asar nahi parta…………….Phir hamari aqal
thikanay aajati hai ..

Ishq


"Ishq insan ko kainat k kisi dosry hissay mein la jata hay. Insan ishq majazi se ishq haqeeqi tak safar tab karta ha jab ishq la-hasil rehta hay ,jab insan jholi bhar bhar kar muhabbat karay or khali dil aor hath lay kar phirray..."

The organization officially commenced on January 1, 1995 under the Marrakesh Agreement, replacing the General agreements on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), wich commenced in 1947. The World Trade Organization deals with regulation of trade between participating countries; it provides a framework for negotiating and formalising trade agreements, and a dispute resolution process aimed at enforcing participants' adherence to WTO agreements which are signed by representatives of member governments and ratified by their parliaments. The WTO has 153 members, representing more than 95% of total world trade and 30 observers, most seeking membership. The WTO is governed by a ministerial conference, meeting every two years; a general council, which implements the conference's policy decisions and is responsible for day-to-day administration; and a director-general, who is appointed by the ministerial conference. The WTO's headquarters is at the Centre William Rappard, Geneva, Switzerland.

G8


The Group of Eight is a forum, created by France in 1975, for governments of eight nations of the northern hemisphere: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; in addition, the European Union is represented within the G8, but cannot host or chair. "G8" can refer to the member states or to the annual summit meeting of the G8 heads of government. The former term, G6, is now frequently applied to the six most populous countries within the European Union. G8 ministers also meet throughout the year, such as the G7/8 finance ministers, G8 foreign ministers, or G8 environment ministers.

Each calendar year, the responsibility of hosting the G8 rotates through the member states in the following order: France, United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada. The holder of the presidency sets the agenda, hosts the summit for that year, and determines which ministerial meetings will take place. Lately, both France and the United Kingdom have expressed a desire to expand the group to include five developing countries, referred to as the Outreach Five or the Plus Five: Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and South Africa. These countries have participated as guests in previous meetings, which are sometimes called G8+5. Recently, France, Germany, and Italy are lobbying to include Egypt to the O5 and expand the G8 to G14.

European Union


The European Union (EU) is an economic and political union of 27 member states, located primarily in Europe. Committed to regional integration, the EU was established by the Treaty of Maastricht on 1 November 1993 upon the foundations of the pre-existing European Economic Community.

The EU has developed a single market through a standardised system of laws which apply in all member states, ensuring the freedom of movement of people, goods, services and capital. It maintains common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries, and regional development. A common currency, the euro, has been adopted by sixteen member states constituting the Eurozone. The EU has developed a limited role in foreign policy, having representation at the WTO, G8 summits, and at the UN. It enacts legislation in justice and home affairs, including the abolition of passport controls between many member states which form part of the Schengen Area. Twenty-one EU countries are members of NATO.

The EU traces its origins to the European Coal and Steel Community formed among six countries in 1951 and the Treaty of Rome in 1957. Since then the union has grown in size through the accession of new countries, and new policy areas have been added to the remit of the EU's institutions.

3. The Economic and Social Council (assists in promoting international economic and social cooperation and development);

Kabhi Russtay Aagay chaltay hain
Kabhi Aasein Tour naheen Charhteen
Kabhi khadshay pooray hotay hain
Kabhi Aankhain deikh nahee sakteen
Kabhi khawab Adhuray hotay hain

Tum ko mein bata don phir
Chahatoon kay rishtoon mein
Phir girah nahi lagti
Lag b jaye tu us mein
wo kashish nahi rehti
Ek phika phika sa rabta tu rehta hay
Dilkashi nahi rehti
Rooh kay taluk mein
Zindagi nahi rehti
Lakh bar mil ker b
Dil kabhi nahi miltay
Yaad k dareechon mein
Zehan k jharookon mein
Titlioon k rugoon say
Phool phir nahi khiltay
Ess liye mein kahta hon
Ess tarha ki batoon mein
Ehtiyat kertay hein
Ess tarha ki baton say ijtanab kertay hein.

Meri Zindagi tou Firaaq Hai

Meri zindagi tou firaaq hay..
Wo azal say dil may makee.n sahi
Wo nigaah-e-shok say door hain..
Rag-e-jaan say laakh Qaree.n sahi

Hamain jaan daine hay aeek din..
Wo kisi tarah woh kaheen sahi
Hamain aap khainchiye daar par...
Jo naheen kaheen to hameen sahi

Sar-e-toor ho, sar-e-hashar ho...
Hamain intizaar kabool hay
Wo kabhi milain, woh kaheen milain...
Wo kabhi sahi, woh kaheen sahi

Na ho in pay jo mera bas naheen...
Kay yeh Aashiqi hay hiwas naheen
Mai in-he ka tha, mai inhe ka hoon..
Wo mery naheen to naheen sahi

Jo ho faisla woh sunaeyee...
Iisay hashar par na uthayee
Jo karaingay aap sitam wahaan...
Wo abhi sahi, Wo yaheen sahi

Isay daikhnay ki jo lo lagi...
Tou naseer daikh he laingay hum
Wo hazaar aankh say door ho...
Wo hazaar parda nasheen sahi

Koi zungeer ho,

Zumanay ki kisi tulwar ka loha nhi chulta!!
Yai aisa shehar hai jiss mai.....
Kisi aamar ,kisi sultan ka sika nhin chulta!!
Ugar chusam-e-tumasha mai zura sii bi milawat ho........
Yai aaiena nhin chulta!!
Yai aise aag hai jis mai...
Budan sholay mai jultay hain to....
Ruhainay muskurati hain!!
Yai wo sailaab hai jis ko....
Diluno ki bustiana aawaz dai kur hud bulati hain!!
Yai jub chahay kisi bii khwab ko tabeer mil jaiey,
Jo munzar bujh chukay hain unn ko b tanweer mil jaiey,
Dua jo bay thukana thi, usay taaseer mil jaiey,
Kisi rustay mai rusta puchti tuqdeer mil jaiey,
Muhabt rok sakti hai sumay k taiz dharay ko!!
Kisi jaltay shuraray ko, funah k istaray ko!!
Muhabat rok sakti hai,kisi girtay sitaray ko!!
Yai chukna choor aaieenay ki kirchiana jor sakti hai...
Jidhar chahay yai bagay mor sakti hai...
KOI ZUNGEER HO USS KO,
MUHABAT TOR SAKTI HAI!!

Muhabbat Ham-Safar Meri

Kathan hai zindagi kitni
Safar dushwaar kitna hai

Kabhi paaon nahi chaltay
Kabhi rasta nahi milta

Hamaara saath dai paai
Koi aisa nahi milta

Faqat aise guzaaroon tu
Ye roz-o-shab nahi kat-tay

Ye kat-tay they kabhi pehlay
Magar haan ab nahi kat-tay

Mujhay phir bhi meray maaalik
koi shikwaa nahi tujh sai

Main jaan per khail sakta hoon
Main her dukh jhail sakta hoon

Agar tu aaj hi ker dai
Muhabbat ham-safar meri

Aao Upnay Upnay Khwab Chunaiy

Aansu ub tuk kis honi ko roak sakay hain?
Kub tulak inn k sath buhaiay!
Janay wali peeli rutt mai kitni gurd urii!
Kiss nai kiss ko kitna khoia, kitna yaad kia!
Taiz huwa ki sufaqi ne kia kia kuch burbaad kia!
Aao jo kuch beet chuka usko dufan kurai.n
Girtay patuno ki dairie sai upnay upnay khwab chunaiy
Aur yaad kurai.n wo runglay moasam jinko ubi aana hai
Aur geet sunai.n unn rahuno k
Jo dasht-e-uzal sai nikli thi.n
Aur jin k sath humainy b upnay shehar-e-ubad tuk jana hai
Aienda k khwab hi to wo sikay hain jo,
Urz-o-suma ki hur basti mai chulnaiy walay hain,
yahi dieay hain jo aandi ki rah mai julnay walay hain.
Khwabuno ki iss beer sai aao
Hum tum upnay khwab chunainy
Zahmuno ki ginti ko chorain,
Aao phool ginai.n!!!

Loneliness




Loneliness is darkness
A never-ending night.
Even though the black won’t go away,
You’ll never fall asleep.

Because loneliness sparks a fear
And unlike other nightmares
Awakening will not vanish it;
For the darkness is too strong
To allow any rest.

It makes memories into ghosts
And dreams into spirits.
Too vague to remember
Too important to forget.

Prayer

Do to me oh Allah what is worthy of Thee and not what worthy of me.

(Saadi)
To admonish your brother your brother in private is to advise him and to improve him but to admonish him publicaly is to digrace and shame him.

(Imaam Shafi)

Criticism

When someone criticizes or disagree with you a small ant of hatred and antagonism is born in your heart if you do not squash that ant atonce, it might grow into a snake or even in a dragon.
(Molana Jalaluddin Rumi)

Trial of a Friend

A friend can not be considered a friend unless he is tested in three occassions: in the time of need, behind your back andafter your death.

(Hazrat Ali)

Ease and Hardship

Ease (Yusar) and hardships (Usar) are the feathers that give strength to the wings of your faith, so that your heart and innermost being can use them to fly to the door of your Lord.

(Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jailani)

The Alchemist


"WHEN YOU REALLY want something to happen, the whole universe conspires so that your wish comes true."

These words echo throughout the novel "The Alchemist", by Paulo Coelho. The author suggests that we all need to be aware of our personal calling. Personal calling is in fact Allah’s blessing, it is the path Allah chooses for us here on earth. However, we don’t all have the courage to confront our own dreams. There are four obstacles, which obstruct us.

1.Impossibility:
We are told from the very childhood that everything we want to do is impossible. We grow up with this idea and the time comes when our personal calling is deeply buried in our soul.
2 Love:
Secondly, we know what we want to do but we don’t want to hurt our loved ones. We don not realize that love is just a further impetus, not something that will prevent us going forward.
3.Defeats:
Defeats which comes on the path are more discouraging for those who are following their dreams because they cant say, “oh I did not want it anyway”
4.Fear:
The fear of realizing the dream.

Once these obstacles are surmounted, one becomes an instrument of God and the whole world conspires in his favour.

Apparently, the story is of Santiago, a Shepard in Spain, who has the courage to follow his dreams. He travels from Spain to Egyptian dessert in search of treasure buries in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets the Gypsy woman, a wise king, his love and an alchemist all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one knows what the treasure is or if the Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts out as a journey to find a worldly thing turns into a discovery of the treasure within.

The story of Santiago is an eternal treatment to the transforming power of our dreams and the importance of listening to our heart. The novel appeals because we can easily identify with the protagonist: as all of us have dreams. Santiago, the Shepard symbolizes Man and his travels are in fact journeys of life. Moreover, the novel skillfully combines words of wisdom, philosophy, and simplicity of meaning and language, which makes it particularly readable and more so enjoyable.

Reader learns that it doesn't matter if one is searching for buried treasure, or for love, or for the secret of turning lead into gold. It doesn't matter if one dies trying, never reaching one's goal. It doesn't matter if one doesn't find what one is looking for, once one gets there. What matters is what one has brought with him on the way, and what one has learned along the way. The people one meets, the hardships and heartaches one goes through, the lessons one experiences has taught him.

The Alchemist tells us how to turn lead into gold. It tells us of the wonder and the uncertainty of change and evolution, the secret of enjoying the beauty of life without becoming hardened by the harshness of reality, the art of living in the moment without worrying about the past or the future, and most importantly, the ultimate secret of the universe, that we are all interconnected. We are all one. With this symbolic masterpiece author has stated that we should not avoid our destinies, and has urged people to follow their dreams.

My favourite quotes:

"We have to be prepared for change." (Page 8)

It is the simple things in life that are the most extra ordinary; only the wise men are able to understand them. (page 15)

“When someone sees the same people every day, as had happened with him at the seminary, they wind up becoming part of that person’s life. And then they want the person to change. If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” (Page 15-16)

“Everyone, when they are young, knows what their destiny is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realise their Personal legend... (Page 21)

It’s a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your destiny. It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth… To realise one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. And when you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” (page 22)

“When people consult me, it’s not that I’m reading the future; I’m guessing at the future. The future belongs to God, and it is only he who reveals it, under extraordinary circumstances. How do I guess at the future? Based on the omens of the present. The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve upon the present, what comes later will also be better. Forget about the future, and live each day according to the teachings, confident that God loves his children. Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity… The camel driver had asked what the circumstances were under which God would allow him to see the future. “Only when he, himself, reveals it. And God only rarely reveals the future. When he does so, it is for only one reason: it’s a future that was written so as to be altered.(page 108-109)

Bay Chehra


Magar wo hijra.n kii taiz barish, jiss main har rang beh gia hai
Wo shakhs meri tamanah k aaienay mai bay chehra reh gia hai...

Zaat


Mai apni zaat mai neelaam ho ruha hun Qateel..
Gham-e-hayat se keh dou khareed laiey mujhy..

Enhi.n pathroun pe chal k


Koi ham nafs nhin hai, koi razz da nhin hai
Faqt ek dil tha apna soo wo mehrba.n nhin hai
Enhi.n pathroun pe chal k agar aa sako tou aao
Meray ghar k rasty mai koi kehkasha.n nhin hai...

Khamosh Aaienay


Jazbay tumaam kho gaiey, lamhoun kii dhool mai
Abb dil mai dharkanoun k siwa kuch nhin ruha
Labb sii liey tou apnay hii kamray mai yun laga
Khamosh aaienou k siwa kuch nhin ruha...

Pathar


Ye socha tha k pathar bann kar jii lun...
Soo andhar se pighalta ja ruha hun...

Chara Ghar


Har Chara-ghar ko chara gharii se guraiz tha...
Warna hamain jo dukh thay bohat la-duwa na thay

Jo chaly tou Jaa.n se guzar gaiey


Na gunwao nawak-e-neem kush, dil raiza raiza gunwa dia
Jo bachy hain sang smait lo, tun-e-dagh dagh luta dia
Jo rukay tou koh-e-gura.n thay ham, jo chaly tou Jaa.n se guzar gaiey
Rah-e-yaar ham ne qadam qadam tujhay yaad gaar buna dia

Fraib


Tulash-e-Manzil k marhalou.n mai ye hadisa ekk ajab dhaikha
Fraib rahoun mai baith jata hai soort-e-aitbaar bann kar

Tulash


Uss ne paikur mai na dhulny kii qasam khaie hai
Aur mujhy shoq-e-mulaqaat liey phirta hai...

Koi Sukhan Aashna Ho


Jee chahuta hai koi sukhan aashna bhi ho
Abb tou shareek-e-dard koi doosra bhi ho
Lafzou.n mai soaz aiey ga lakin ye shurt hai
Ess gham mai meri tarha koi mubtula bhi ho
