Micro Fiction

Years later, sitting alone in his mansion, with no one to hold him, it finally hit him. "This is what she meant."

Kehta Hai Ik Ghulam ...

Do you know what happened just now? 
I was getting off my laptop for the night when I noticed a picture on my face book time line. The picture belonging to a volunteer who is working at a current project of mine for an NGO, had been posted only some 3 minutes back.
What is so special about that picture, you must be wondering!

The picture was of him sitting on the steps of the Masjid-e Nabvi (Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam)

I shot him an absolutely abrupt and probably not the most appropriately constructed email, asking for a favor. He was kind to respond in matters of seconds.

I haven't been calm since. The thought of a real-time pseudo presence has been too much to swallow without crying.

I am frenzied. I am ecstatic. And I am swaying in S.H.M. between the two extremes... gahay khandum, gahay giryam!

.... Bus ik Nazar ka sawal hai!

ps: for all this latest technology, sud shukar alhamdolillah!

The Symphony Of The Soul

يـار مـرا , غار مـرا , عشق جگر خـوار مـرا
يـار تـوئی , غار تـوئی , خواجه نگهدار مـرا

نوح تـوئی , روح تـوئی , فاتح و مفتوح تـوئی
سينه مشروح تـوی , بر در اسرار مـرا

نـور تـوئی , سـور تـوئی , دولت منصور تـوئی
مرغ کــه طور تـوئی , خسته به منقار مـرا

قطره توئی , بحر توئی , لطف توئی , قهر تـوئی
قند تـوئی , زهر تـوئی , بيش ميازار مـرا

حجره خورشيد تـوئی , خانـه ناهيـد تـوئی
روضه اوميد تـوئی , راه ده ای يار مـرا

روز تـوئی , روزه تـوئی , حاصل در يـوزه تـوئی
آب تـوئی , کوزه تـوئی , آب ده اين بار مـرا

دانه تـوئی , دام تـوی , باده تـوئی , جام تـوئی
پخته تـوئی , خام تـوئی , خام بمـگذار مـرا
- Rumi

And Truth Shall Set You Free

 "I’m saying you’ve already done plenty of things to regret, you just don’t know what they are. It’s when you discover them, when you see the folly in something you’ve done, and you wish that you had it do over, but you know you can’t, because it’s too late. So you pick that thing up, and carry it with you to remind you that life goes on, the world will spin without you, you really don’t matter in the end. Then you will gain character, because honesty will reach out from inside and tattoo itself across your face"

From the movie... The Big Kahuna
