naisaiku week 11

[ echoes of indian poetry - 4 ]

" unka joh hai farz woh ahle siyaasat jaaneN
mera paiGham muhabbat hai jahan tak pahunche "

( ~ Jigar Muradabadi - a voice from urdu poetry )

here to wherever
politics its duty knows
( left to itself politics )
here to wherever ~ Jigar Muradabadi

/naisaiku 4 /translation/z.g.©

{ loosely interpreted so as to conform to the naisaiku format-
- - paraphrase_ those that indulge in politics / politicking , would know of their duties-mine is a message of love as far as it would go // cited for educational purposes only.}

the teacher teaches
as it's ever unfolding
as it's ever unfolding
teaches the teacher ..

Hi Zoya, we never stop learning, do we? The Meaning of Life is something I've been trying to come to terms with constantly.

The way you wrote this is spot on, as it displays a cyclical thought, which was the original intention of The NaiSaiKu form.
Very well said! Thank you for posting it!
