I am luvin it …..
I love those McDonald ads where they show snacks at affordable rates from the times of our fathers.
There are some other things as well from mere pitaji ka zamana. I remember a good sher which my late father often recited and I have loved it for ever……
Deeye nein sarr par aag rakh karr kasam khaee hai Bakhuda,maine nahin jalaya iss parwaaney ko.
Fannah honney ke baad,parwaaney ki mayyiat bhi nahi uththtee.
Gunehgaar-ey-muhabbat ka yahi anjaam hota hai. Karrey koi,bharrey koi,nigaahein zulm karti hain
Aur dill badnaam hota hai !
A rough translation of above for those who are not so proficient in Urdu and Hindi:( By Shernaz Wadia )
The earthen lamp has just confessed
With a burning flame atop its head:
“Oh God, I would like to clearly state
I am not responsible for the charred moth’s fate!”
There’s none at all, to cremate the one such doom awarded ~
Prisoners of passionate love always, are so rewarded.
Someone else often pays for the faults of another,
The eyes are guilty – the heart with blame they smother!
