    Regarding Zardari, there are news that A pair of shoe hurled towards him. It’s all over on Pakistani channels

    Hum he Qatl ho rahey haiN, hum he Qatl kar rahey haiN

    That is the great truth. It is we who are killed and we who kill. When we realize this, maybe then we can start a process of rebuilding.

    Call me an idiot for pointing out things wrong.

    But I do love the Great Allama. Time and again I gravitate to his poetry. Even when he is down, he stirs you up and shows you the way out of the morass.

    I know there are a lot of fans of Faiz and Faraz. But both are too depressing. Their poetry is reflective of their times and experiences. Their struggles. Their hopes dashed. They are realists for sure, but do show a way out?

    It is possible that this depression is evident in some of the posts, their style and their context? After all, one can always find glass half empty; grass green on the other side; the other lane moving faster.

    Resistance to the usurper and tyrant is good and necessary. Fine, but there has to be a positive contribution, a game changer (popular term these days) that shines the light at the end of the tunnel. Depression is not a problem solver.

    I really do gravitate towards the Great Allama. To my mind, he has always presented a problem and a solution. And his solutions are always guided by the principles of serving the humanity.

    And serving the humanity is to protect and nourish the Creator’s creations. Depression is man induced acceptance of failure. Failure is not an option in the ways of Creator.

    Yep, I am an Allama’s idiot for sure.
