SUNA HAI JUNGLUN KA BHI KOI DASTOOR HOTA HAI

I am feeling sad to start my blog with something sad, but the prevailing situation in our beloved city forced me to do so. I still remember when i first entered Karachi years ago, with sweet memories of my father and our old happy days. I still remember the days when we used to visit Karachi in winter holidays with our beloved father. How beautiful and peaceful was the city in those days? but what happened during last 20 years is a horrible reality for all karachiittes. The recent events of terror reminded me of the unfortunate events in the mid 90's, which caused thousands of death, destruction of property and business. This beautifull city deserved something defferent than this. God bless all Karachittes peace, safety and hormony.

Suna hai janglun ka bhi koi dastoor hota hai
Suna hai sher ka jab pait bhar jaye
to woh hamla nahee karta
Darakhton ki ghani chhaon mein ja kar let jata hai
Hawa kay taiz jhonke jab darakhton ko hilate hain
To maina apne bache chhor kar
Kawway kay andon ko paron mein tham leti hai
Suna hai ghonsle se koi bacha gir paray to
sara jungle jaag jata hai
Suan hai jab kisis naddi kay pani mein
baye kay ghonsle ka gandami saaya larazta hai
To naddi ki rupehli machhlyaan usko padosi maan leti hain
Koi tufan aa jaye koi pull toot jaye toh
Kisis lakri kay takhtay par
Gulehri, saanp, bakri aur cheetah sath hotay hain
Suna hai janglon ka bhi koi dastoor hota hai
Khuda wanda, jaleel o mohtbar
Daana o beena, munsif o akbar
Mere is shahr mein
Ab janglon ka he koi qanoon nafiz kar

Welcome to the Blogging world with one of the most haunting lines from Zehra Nigha . The gloom and the bleakness that is overcast must not hinder our trust that man and humanity will eventually triumph.

Ye raat bhar ke judai tu koi baat nahian
Ye chaar den ke khudai tu koi baat nahian

Salaam peerless,

Warm Welcome from me too!

I am glad to see another poetry lover's blog.
I also love poetry about social issues and hope to read more at your blog.

Karachi has been a city of my dreams and I remeber the day when I was able to enter this city (1997).
But my stay in the city lasted for 3 or 4 hours and I had to capture another train for going back to Lahore.
And that's the only time I could manage to see the city of lights.
I hope I will visit Karachi once more. I pray that may Allah make your city a city of peace and prosperity. Ameen.

Thanks for your comments

surely you will enjoy some good poetry, the same is my case as far as Lahore is concerned (a transitional stay of some hours).
