Bulleh Shah Magic…

Parh Parh Ilm Hazaar Kitaaban,
Qaddi Apnay Aap Nou Parhiya Naee,
Jaan Jaan Warhday Mandir Maseedi,
Qaddi Mann Apnay Wich Warhiya Naee,
Aa-Vain Larda Aye Shaitan De Naal Bandeaa,
Qaddi Nafss Apnay Naal Lariya Naee.

Translation*

Yes, Yes, You Have Read Thousands Of Books,
But You Have Never Tried To Read Your Own Self,
You Rush In, Into Your Temples, Into Your Mosques,
But You Have Never Tried To Enter Your Own Heart,
Futile Are All Your Battles With Satan,
For You Have Never Tried To Fight Your Own Desires

PS: The messy routine makes one drown in frenzy circumstances where oneself is second to all materialistic priorities.

  1. अगर मैं झूठ बोलूंगा तो गैरत मार डालेगी,
    अगर मैं सच बोलूंगा तो हुकुमत मार डालेगी।

    बहुत होशियार रहना है हिन्दू-मुस्लमां को,
    वरना लड़ाकर आपस में सियासत मार डालेगी।..

  2. Thank you Nimmi, most people would have been offended by my comment but you took it in the right spirit.

    I wanted to point out the self-deception in people. People fool themselves and lie to themselves. Being honest to your own self is uncommon. People do not honestly question their own beliefs.

    • I know exactly what you are talking about. And I too think the same way you think. Many won’t say however, I loved and appreciated that there are still people like you who speak up for the mass.
      Thank you dear for your great words. 🙂
