A nazam by faiz

Gulshan-e-yaad mein gar aaj dame baad-e-saba,
Phir se chahe ke gul-afshan ho, tu ho jaanay do,
Umer-e-rafta ke kisi taaq pe bisra hua dard,
Phir se chahe ke ferozaan ho, tu ho jaanay do,
Jaisay begana se ab miltay ho, waisay hi sahi,
Aao do char ghari meray muqabil betho,
Garcha mil bethein ge ham tum tu mulaqat ke baad,
Apna ahsas-e-ziyaan aur ziyada hoga,
Hum sukhan hongay jo ham donu tu har baat ke beech,
Unkahi baat ka mohoom sa pardah hoga,
Koi iqrar na mein yaad dilaaonga na tum!
Koi mazmoon wafa ka na jafa ka hoga,
Gard-e-Ayyaam ki tehreer ko dhonay ke liye,
Tum se goya hoon dam-e-deed jo meri palkein,
Tum jo chaho tu suno, Aur jo na chaho na suno,
Aur jo harf karein mujh se guraizaan aankhein,
Tum jo chaho tu kaho aur jo na chaho na kaho!"

Aksar Shab-e-Tanhai MeiN

Aksar Shab-e-Tanhai MeiN
Kuch Dair Pehlay NeeNd Se
Guzrii Hoi Dilchaspi'yaaN
Beetay Howay Din Aish Ke
Bantay HeiN Shamma-e-Zindagi
Aurr Daaltay HeiN Roshni
Meray Dil-e-Sad Chaak Par

Woh Bacchpun Aur Woh Saadgi
Woh Rona, Woh Hussna Kabhi
Phir Woh Jawaani Ke Mazzay
Woh Dil'Lagee Woh QeHqeHay!
Woh Ishq, Woh Ahed-e-Wafa
Woh Wada Aur Woh Shukriya
Woh Lazzat-e-Bazm-e-Tarab
Yaad Aati Hai Aik Aik Sub

Dil Ka Kanwal Jo Roz-o-Shab
Rehta Shagufta Tha So Abb
Es Ka Yea Abtar Haal Hei
Ek Sabza-e-Pamaal Hei
Ek Phool Kumlaya Howa
Sookha Howa Bikhra
Howa RoNda PaRa Hei Khak Per

Abhi Zid Na Ker ...

Abhi Zid Na Ker Dil e Bekhabar
Ke pas e hajoom e sitamgiraan
abhi kon tujh se wafa keray
abhi kis ko fursatain is qadar
ke samait ker teray kirchiyaan
teray haq mein khud se dua kerain!

abhi zid na ker dil e bekhabar
ke tehay ghubaar e gham e jahan
kahan kho gaye aye teray chara ghar
ke rahay hayaat mein raaigaan
kahan so gaye teray hamsafar
abhi gham gusaaron ki chot sehh
abhi kuch na sun abhi kuch na kehh

abhi zid ne ker meray baynawa
abhi ho sakkay to sakhi meray
sab hi khawab rakh mein dafan ker
abhi ho sakkay to ye soch lay
ke taloo e ashk se paishtar
kaheen dard hai to howa keray
koi chot hai to khula keray

kabhi yun bi ho ke sar e ufak
teray dukh ka chaand damak uthay
koi tees khud se chamak uthay
kisi shehar e zakhm firosh mein
sab hi aks khud se khurach kabhi
kabhi yun bi jashn e tarab mana
kabhi is tarah se bi eid ker!!!!

SPELLBOUND

SPELLBOUND BY THE NIGHT
ANGER TURNS INTO RAGE
FORCED INTO ROOMS OF HATE
BLEEDING ALTHOUGHT THERE IS NO WOUND
TAKING PLEASURE FROM TORTURE
I SEE IT EATING ME ALIVE
I FEEL IT BURNING ME FROM INSIDE
SOOTHING OUR SELFISH THOUGHTS
I'M EMPTY IN BODY AND SOUL
NO LONGER ALIVE, DANCING STILL DEAD
DARKSIDE FOREVER ALIVE
DISEASE THAT CAN NEVER BE CURED
LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND, STILL I AM TRAPPED
WILL I EVER BE FREE ?
I WISH I COULD END IT NOW
I WISH I COULD END IT ALL
BUT THERE YOU ARE
PUSHING IT OVER THE EDGE
AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
SPELLBOUND BY MY OWN ILLUSIONS
TO PROUD TO FALL DOWN ON MY KNEES
I WISH I COULD BLEED, TO CLEAN ALL THE WOUNDS
LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND AND DROWN IN MY DREAMS
FOR ALL MY SINS FORGIVE ME
AND AT LAST I'LL BE FREE

Programming pearls ...

Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand. (Fowler)

Debug only code - comments can lie.

If you have too many special cases, you are doing it wrong.

Get your data structures correct first, and the rest of the program will write itself.

Testing can show the presence of bugs, but not their absence.

The first step in fixing a broken program is getting it to fail repeatedly.

The fastest algorithm can frequently be replaced by one that is almost as fast and much easier to understand.

The cheapest, fastest, and most reliable components of a computer system are those that aren't there.

Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.

Don't use the computer to do things that can be done efficiently by hand.

[Thompson's Rule for first-time telescope makers] It is faster to make a four-inch mirror then a six-inch mirror than to make a six-inch mirror.

If you lie to the computer, it will get you.

Inside of every large program is a small program struggling to get out.

Kissi mosum ka jhonka tha

kissi mosum ka jhonka tha
jo iss deewaar per lutki howi tasweer tirchi ker gaya hai

gai saawan main ye dewaarain yun seeli nahin thin
najaane iss dafa kyun in main seelan aagai hai
daraarain per gai hain
aur seelan iss terha behti hai jese
khushk rukhsaaron pe geele aansu chulte hain

ye baarish gungunati thi
issi chuht ki munderon per
yeh ghar ki khiryon ki kaanch per
ungliyon se likh jaati thi sundese
bilukti rehti hai ab bethi howi
bund roshandaanon ke peechey

dopehrain aisi lugti hain
bina mohron ke khaali khaane rukhe hain
na koi khelne waala hai baazi
aur na koi chaal chulta hai

na din hota hai ab, naan raat hoti hai
subhi kuch ruk gaya hai
wo kiya mosum ka jhonka tha
jo iss deewar per lutki howi tasweer tirchi ker gaya hai ??

Death of the imagination

The imagination has been so debased. now the imagination is rather something that exists something outside ourselves. like scincefiction or some imaginative reciepe that no one has ever tasted. like starwars "so imaginative", and start trek so imaginative. and lord of the rings,all those dwarves, "so imaginative". imagination has moved from being a part of our link. from the most personal link from our lives. and the world outside this world, the world we share. so horafiying it is if what is in one's mind donot match wht's outside. why has imagination became a synonym for style. I belive that imagination is a passport we create to take to the real world. i think that imagination is another phrase for wht most uniquly us. some one said "the greatest sin is to be unconsious", holden said "wht scares me most is the other guys face". it wouldnt be so bad if u both be blind folded. most of the time the faces that we face is not of other guyz but our own faces. and its worst kind of yellowness to be so scared of yourself that u blind folds on rather then deal with your self. to face ourselves. thats a hard thing. imagination is gods gift to make the process of self examination bareable.

Maaeri (Opening)

Teriyaan, meriyaan pul gayaa
Pul gayaa har te jeet

Hey maae ki karnaa main jeet nu
Howay na je meet, howay na je meet
