Aami dhur hothae tomarai dhekhechi, I have seen you from afar aar mughdhoyae chokhae chayae thekechi and gloried in you. Baajae kinkini rini jhini thomarae jae chini chini, the bells sounding allow for your recognition, monae monae kotho chobi aaekechi, and I joyfully painted pictures of you in my heart. Chilo bhaabae bhora dhuti aakhi chonchol, when my eyes brightenedwith deep thought, thumi bathashae urale bhiru onchol, you scattered this world far and wide, koyi rupaer madhuri mor shonchayae rekhechi, and thus, I have to hide you within my soul. Kosthuri mridhotho megh the perfumed filled road foretell an enlightened law, jaano kosthuri, those perfumed waves aapon ghondho dhaelae aeyi hridoyae chuuae gaele, and after fulfilling our hearts with its fragrance, you left.  Shemayarae aaponarae dekechi, thus, it is in stealth that I hide from your face. Koi kopolae dhekhechi laal podhho, therefore it is with you have I found my rosy future, jaano dhol maelae phutae jayae shothho, because in droves the truth beckons all around me. Maelae aamar, in such a mix, bhromor gunjonae thomarae dhekaechi I see you as the future again ….

Ranjish hi Sahi ghazal, Ahmad Faraz, Vocalist, Rafaqat Ali Khan. Jashn-e-Rekhta, Celebration of Urdu. 2016

Ranjish hi sahi dil hi dukhaane liye aa. Sorrow come to fill my broken heart. Aa phir se mujhe mujhe chod ke jaane liye aa. Come to take me away with you. Ab tak dil-e-khush_feham ko tujh se hain ummeedain, heart’s happiness has seen its completion and yet you sorrow remain vigilant. Ye aakhari shammain bhi bujhaane liye aa. Please come to put to rest the final vestiges of life. Ek umr se hun lazzat-e-giryaa se bhi mehruum, I have reached an age where shame has become the cause of my life, thus, I reach for you sorrow to fill my empty heart. Aye raahat-e-jaan mujh ko rulaane liye aa. Cruelly, sorrow appear even it is to make me weep again and again. Kuchh tho meri pindaar-e-mohabbat ka bharam rakh. Show a little respect to my love for you. Thu bhi to kabhi mujh ko manaane ke liye aa, Grief come to manage me in my brokeness. Come, so that I can leave my sorrows behind. Mana ke muhabbat ka chupana hain muhabbat, chupke se kisi roz chatha ne ke liya aa, love can be renewed thus do not hide it within yourself. Secretly, someday come to speak with me. Jaise jaise jaise tum aathe hain na ane ke bahane. Just like you arrive pretending not to, aaise hai kisi roz na jane ke liye aa, similarly do not sell the path you have shown. Aa phir se mujhe mujhe chod ke jaane liye aa. Come to take me away with you. Ranjish hi sahi dil hi dukhaane ke liye aa. Sorrow come to fill my broken heart.

Reverend Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation as a way forward for truth’s mortification; Repentance or Satyagraha is law of being. German designed apology not.

The 95 Theses

Die 95 Thesen


Out of love for the truth and from desire to elucidate it, the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and Sacred Theology, and ordinary lecturer therein at Wittenberg, intends to defend the following statements and to dispute on them in that place. Therefore he asks that those who cannot be present and dispute with him orally shall do so in their absence by letter. In the name of Christ, Amen.


  1. When Jesus Christ said, “Repent” (Mt 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.

Shondha malothi jobae when evening met the arrangement of clouds, blossoms appeared.

Shondha malothi jobae when evening meets the arrangement of clouds phulo bonae jhurae blossoms cover the earth and all of its inhabitants.  Kae aashi bajalae bashi bhoirobee shurae, Who comes with a melodious flute playing the raag bhairavi (morning)? Shajer purno chaandae oruno bhabhiya, the dressed up moon believes it is born again. Papiya probhathi shurae uthilo gahiya , the songbird wakes up singing pleasingly. Bhorer komol bhaebae, believing it to be morning its yearning shaajer shapla phulae, descends on the bejewelled Shapla flower.  Kunjore bhromor dhurae dhurae, In the gardens, the bumble bee spreads the Shapla flower’s scent far and wide. Shaajer shopna kunjonae, with pregnant dreams bikaler shaadher dhaka, the evening orders what must be fulfilled chilo bono bhumi, the safety of our homes among forests.  Shokaler mollika phutailae thumi,  You who have raised  morning’s plume rangilo shaadh rongae of bright red ghodhuli logono, brought about auspicious times shonaalae  ashaar bani of hope’s story biroho bidhurae for the forlorn everywhere.

[Verse 1]
You’ve heard it all before, This time won’t be the same, you can trust me”
But you know my *!! game
Say what I have to, to get what I need
Now the evil delivered swings back at me
Weak attempts at change
Carry me backward
Too little, too late
Now live with the hurt
For everything I have an excuse
But some things are not long hidden:
The sun, the moon, the truth

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I live with the hurt Live with the hurt
This is what I deserve

[Chorus]
Break me down, the only way I’ll learn
The guilt is overwhelming
Take me out, the pain of me returns
My sins f*!! destroy me

[Verse 2]
I am forced to face the fire I create
And watch as it annihilates everything
Hold me back while I watch it burn
The price I pay, the suffering returns
Now the hands of fate are here to collect
Nothing here is safe until I reflect
I run from myself, no end in sight
Numb on the inside from living a lie

[Pre-Chorus]
Now I watch as it burns
Watch as it burns
This is what I deserve

[Chorus]
Break me down, the only way I’ll learn
The guilt is overwhelming
Take me out, the pain of me returns
My sins f*!! destroy me

[Bridge]
You can shelter yourself from the sun
And you can hide from the moon
But there is nothing you can do
When the truth strikes its light on you

[Breakdown]
Now I must live with the hurt
Now I must live with the hurt

[Outro]
The pain of me returns
The pain of me returns
The pain of me returns
Now I must live with the hurt
