Speaking about comments…
Sulphur man commented,part of his comment said:
Kinda reminded me of that sher by Ghalib
“Kaaba kis muh se jaoge Ghalib
Sharam tumko magar nahi aati”
This reminded me of a shair as well but not Ghalibs though.Let me first tell you a lil background about the poem.
So a little more about the poem… I had written the first one when I was supposed to be studying Khairz.Second one which is the English version was for a friend who couldn’t understand Urdu. 🙄
I think it was a good idea that I tried to make an English version since most people understand English.Nonetheless,I love the Urdu one more. ❤ It has more power and obviously originality. 😛 When I had finished the Urdu one I was glad I wrote something which had something to say and might make the reader ponder about life.
To be honest sometime later a thought just hit me.The whole of the poem can be summarised very easily and the funny thing is that it had been,I just didn’t realise it.
The picture that I wanted to display,the message I wished to deliver the reminder that I intended to present was in that poem.The essence however can be put in a few words that were penned by the great poet Allama Iqbal. 😎
Which transliterates to :
Khuda ne aaj tak us qaum ki haalat naheen badlee,
Na ho jisko khayal aap apni halat ke badalne ka.
More over in the Quran also there is a verse that talks about this!
He just put that in his own poetic style.
“It is a fact that Allah does not change the condition of a people unless they bring about change in their own selves.” (13:11) QURAN
