They say that couples are made in heaven. But they forget that they are united in this world only if circumstances favors them. True soulmates are either those who come victorious from the test of time or those who succumbs to it. This poem is a story of one such couple.

"Your love makes my life complete
In next life ,this cycle I want to repeat.
It feels good....satisfying and great.
that you are my soulmate. "

Every time he read her these words, all his wounds were stirred. He always thought why that girl his wife with whom he promised to spend his life betrayed his trust and earned his disgust.

"When I walked down memory lane,
We were happy.I didn't see any pain,
Our love was above loss and gain,
but to our relation you only gave disdain."

Almost five years have passed to their divorce but still to remember her was his daily course. Telephone ring brought him out of trance, " Come soon! Meet her! Perhaps you don't get another chance." His father called him for his mother's critical condition her last wish was to meet him for some confession. He packed his bags and took the next flight, she would sure to recover if he would be near her sight. 

"Aarav! Apple of my eye,
I know I am going to die.
But there is a burden on my soul,
restricting my spirit's free stroll.

Rosy was not guilty as you thought,
I framed her. It was my plot.
I was responsible for your cry,
forgive me my son." She sigh.

"Forgive you? I didn't listen her clarification. Forgive you? You charged her for illicit relation. Forgive you? You ruined my life. Forgive you? You killed me without a knife." He ran madly out of the room to find Rosy whom he left in gloom. He abused her and cursed her for bad luck. " I hope with misfortunes you always stuck." She said nothing and went away. She was alone but never came in his way. 

He searched where she worked,he searched where she stayed. "She died that day you were divorced," someone told him the place she was laid. She couldn't bear the hatred of one she loved so much, the one who put her life in the cruel world's clutch. 

He silently sat near her grave,
Regretted for what to her he gave,
" I am guilty, wake up and punish,
my grief only your forgiveness can finish."

His guilt stopped his heart rate,
Separated in togetherness was their fate,
Wrote their names in list of Love's greats,
In another world they truly would be soulmates.

  5. Cifar Shayar,

    This is a harsh reality of so many couples. Families have left no stone unturned to ensure that the lovers part ways irrespective of the fact that they are married to each other. That is when the couple should stand up for each other and not believe the world blindly. Tragic story but beautifully written.

    All the best for BAT!


  6. Yes, reality throws some circumstances that are sometimes hard to jump over, even for soulmates. I liked the story, Cifar.

  10. I hope I word it right... When you marry a certain someone... You're promising them your trust loyalty and your word to keep them safe... Not to make them your maid, a substitute for your mother or just a woman to bare your child... You marry her so that your walk to your grave, as time advances wouldn't seem so lonely...

Nami Danam Che Manzil Bood

Nami Danam Che Manzil Bood - Amir Khusro Dhoom - 3's famous track 'Kamli' featuring Katrina Kaif uses a Persian word 'Nami Danam' which means " I don't know" . That word was used by famous Sufi Poet Amir Khusro in this poem also. I am translating it into English as well as easy to understand Urdu (In Devnagri script). नमी दानम चे मंज़िल बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम, ब हरसू रक़्स-ए-बिस्मिल  बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम।  परी पैकर निगार-ए-सर्व कदे लाला रुकसारे, सरापा आफत-ए-दिल  बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम। रक़ीबन गोश-बर-आवाज़,ओ-दर नाज़-ओ-मन तरसा, सुख़न गुफ़्तन के मुश्किल बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम। ख़ुदा ख़ुद मीर-ए-मजलिस बुद अंदर लामकां ख़ुसरो, मोहम्मद शम्मा-ए-महफ़िल   बुद शब् जाए के मन बुदम।  कल रात मुझको ख़बर नहीं,मैं जहाँ मौजूद था, हर ओर बीमार-ए-इश्क़ थे,रात मैं जहाँ मौजूद था।   उस बुलंदी पर चेहरा-ए-मेहबूब रोशन था, बना वो आफ़त-ए-दिल था,रात मैं जहाँ मौजूद था।  उनकी आवाज़ को सुनने जहाँ हर एक तरसा था, मैं ख़ामोश सहमा था,रात मैं जहाँ मौजूद

Na Muhn Chupa Ke Jiye Hum Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jiye

न मुहँ छुपा के जीए हम न सर झुका के जीए। (Na Muhn Chupa Ki Jiye Hum Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jiye) -  I am sharing here a ' Qita ' written by Sahir Ludhianvi which is recently used in Hindi movie 'Sanju '. A song inspired from it also penned by Sahir for the film ' Humraaz' (1967 ) staring Sunil Dutt in the lead role. Literal meaning of Qata is ‘separated’. Qata stands for a series of couplets in a ghazal having continuity of thought. A ghazal having one or more Qatas is called Qata-Band ghazal . Qatas also have independent existence comprising at least four lines. In a Qata , the second and fourth lines follow the same rhyming scheme. (Qita meaning from Rekhta ). Here I have tried to translate it.  न मुँह छुपा के जिए हम न सर झुका के जिए,  सितमगरों की नज़र से नज़र मिला के जिए, अब एक रात अगर कम जिए तो कम ही सही,  यही बहुत है कि हम मिशअलें जला के जिए।  Na Muhn Chupa Ke Jiye Hum Na Sar Jhuka Ke Jiye, Sitamgaron Ki Nazar Se Nazar M

Sitaron Se Aage Jahan Aur Bhi Hain

सितारों से आगे जहाँ और भी हैं।(There are more worlds ahead of the stars)- Allama Iqbal On 15th May 2013 UPA-2 completed its four years,its nine years for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. In celebrating this event, after dinner party he spoke to journalists and quoted this couplet of Mohammad Iqbal, "Sitaron se aage jahan aur bhi hain"  which made me to share complete ghazal here which inspires to not limit yourself and work hard to achieve your goals. For more on this, "Inside Sitaron Se Aage" सितारों से आगे जहाँ और भी हैं, अभी इश्क के इम्तिहाँ और भी हैं। There are more worlds ahead of the stars, There are still more tests in love to surpass. तही ज़िन्दगी से नहीं ये फ़जायें, यहाँ सैकड़ों कारवाँ और भी हैं। This environment is not because of this life, There are hundreds more caravan to rife. कनाअत न कर आलम-ऐ-रंग-ओ-बू पर, चमन और भी,आशियाँ और भी हैं। Don't be satisfied with the world of color and scent, There are other gar
