Rubai

A rubai that I said today.

aasaishon kay shehr main roti ko tarastay

hain barkatain yahan wahan aazab barastay

in aafaton say ho gaee afkar ki bhee maut

khud ko kabhi to kabhi zamanay ko kostay

Prosaic translation

in the city of ease and plenty starving for a piece of bread

here are the bounties there the showers of problems

these calamities have caused the death of thought

sometimes we blame ourselves and blaming the age

apologies for the horrible translation
