Explanation of Moti/Pearls (Creative/Reflective Urdu Poetry) December 31, 2009

Explanation of Creative/Reflective Urdu Life Path Poetry

Here’s my own personal and limited interpretation for the Poem “Moti” from an earlier post found here . If you have any thing to add or deduct, please do so in the Comment Section Below.

Moti/Pearl(s)

Khoobsurti kay rungou.n mei.n piroyay Moti
Jhalak kur gir chukay hai.n asmaa.n say
Hum ney damun phaila kur agaay
Bhur lia isay in Na ashnaou.n say
Phir pyar k dhagay mein pirounay k baad
Kamil kiya galay say laga kur, jo na mukammul thay
Zara sa jhataknay say he, Yeh Dil Fareib!!
Tumam Hudou.n ko paar kur gayay
Kaha tha k Kul Arzoo k Dur Pay
Sajayein gay yeh nayaab Moti
Ho gayay Faslay buhut dour mager
Jub gir kur bikhur parhay yeh Bud naseeb Moti
Ab hum in ki talaash kya karein
Budgumaan kur chukay hain yeh Bay wujood Moti

موتی

خوبصورتی کے رنگوں میں پروئے موتی
جھلک کر گر چکے ھیں آسماں سے
ھم نے دامن پھیلا کر آگے
بھر لیا اِسے اِن نہ آشناؤں سے
پھر پیار کے دھاگے میں پرونے کے بعد
کامل کیا گلے سے لگا کر، جو نہ مکمل تھے
ذرا سا جھٹکنے سے ھی یہ دلفریب
تمام حدوں کو پار کر گئے
کہا تھا کہ کل آرزو کے در پہ
سجائیں گے یہ نایاب موتی
ھوگئے فاصلے بہت دور مگر
جب گِر کر بکھر پڑے یہ بدنصیب موتی
اب ھم اِن کی تلاش کیا کریں
بدگمان کر چکے ھیں یہ بےوجود موتی

Strangers Na ashnaou.n / نہ آشناؤں
Complete Kamil/کامل
throw with the hand,toss,shake off,twitch,agitate Jhataknay/جھٹکنے
attractive,captivating Dil fareib /دلفریب
Rare Nayaab /نایاب

MEANING ON THE LITERAL LEVEL

Moti…What is it all about?

On a literal level, it actually mentions the Rain drops that are weaved in beautiful colors especially when they turn into a rainbow after rain. When the sky gets heavy carrying all those fully loaded clouds around and can bear no more, it lets the water fall to the ground which in a way brings moments of joy to the people below like a blessing from the Heavens above.
The people or an individual so filled with ecstasy can control their/his emotions no more and want to collect and save as much of these precious possessions (rain drops) . For this reason, they extend their embracing arms and warm containers full of emotions forward to fill them with this rain (drops) to the extent possible. They are not familiar with the nature of these rain drops or what it will bring to them but they are inspired with beauty and nature so much that they welcome them in their lives.

These drops , Exquisitely Pearly shaped, transparent and reflective carry a flood of beauty and perfection in them and the Possessor (the person who has them now) wants to adorn, beautify him/herself with it by weaving them in a necklace, worn around the neck ( like an ornament) .

The individual feels as if he/she has actually completed them as they look even more pretty and their beauty comes out/ is complemented by them.

But the person didn’t know about how Fragile, weak and Fake they are. A very little agitation, shaking off is only what it takes to Break them. Little did the person know that such a gentle blow will make them Fall apart. And they cross the limits in the sense that they break and fall apart so now they are not bonded together anymore.

The person’s fanciful fantasies and imagination had made him/her believe (wrongfully) that they will decorate themselves with these Rare Pearls as an embellishment to enhance their charm and beauty and their wishes will get a reality.

But unfortunately, the dream’s broken as now these UnFortunate Pearls are far apart since they had dispersed and scattered on the ground. There is no use finding them , recovering them, getting them back together Since the feelings that the person once held for them don’t Exist anymore. Their Dreamlike, Great Image in his/her eyes has Tarnished/broken and so has his/her Trust in Them.

MEANING ON THE NON-LITERAL/RHETORICAL LEVEL

This might have several interpretations but the underlying meaning is the same. Sometimes, we just come across such people in life that we start considering them Our Life. These people can be given several labels …they could be Friends or Relatives etc. but they sure Seem like a Blessing from God just like the much awaited Summer Rain. We develop love, care and affinity for them suddenly due to Some similarities and nice, outward behaviors that they display. We feel that we complement them in every form.
The 7th,8th lines can be interpreted in a number of ways. Like for instance, A slight misunderstanding (on their part) shows us how Fake the relationship was. It held no Promise for future. They never trusted us in the first place. OR they broke our trust or when we tried to test them, they failed.
All our dreams are broken and there remains no color anywhere anymore. Neither we can put them back in the exalted and high position that we did before, nor we can allow them any place in our life. Once the boundaries are crossed and the damage is done, it cannot be Undone!!

Explanation of Kamal e Zaat – Human Pinnacle (Life Path Creative Urdu Poetry) December 27, 2009

Explanation of Creative Urdu Life Path Poetry

Just my own personal and limited interpretation for the Poem Kamal E Zaat. If you have any thing to add or deduct, please do so in the Comment Section Below.

Kamal e Zaat / Human Pinnacle

Jhulas kur he Taqat milti hai Awaz ko
Jul kur tuptay Suraj mei.n, jaa.n milti hai purwaz ko

Juzb-e-bahim bhi ho mager, Kawish-e-Wahid say
Kamrani milti hai Baraat ko
Bay Sabati mei.n rawaa.n zindagi kay saath ko
Fana ho kur he, sabaat milti hai zaat ko

کمالِ ذات

جھلس کر ھی طاقت ملتی ھے آواز کو
جل کر تپتے سورج میں،جاں ملتی ھے پرواز کو
قطرے جو بساط نہیں رکھتے، کھو جاتے ھیں ریت میں
جزبِ باھم بھی ھو مگر ، کاوشِ ِ واحد سے ھی کامرانی
ملتی ھے بارات کو

فنا ھو کر ھی، ثبات ملتی ھے ذات کو

MEANING ON THE LITERAL LEVEL

Kamal-E-Zaat…What is it all about?

Kamal means Completion, Perfection , Attainment.

Zaat means Entity (that has[/which is perceived or known or inferred to have] a distinct, separate existence (living or nonliving) , though it need not be a material existence.

Kamal-e-Zaat stands for a “Entity(e.g. Soul) that has attained perfection.”.

” ذات کا کمال /ذات کا تکمیل کو پہنچنا ۔ کمال حاصل کرنا ”

The writing symbolizes the life of a Droplet of Water. How it moves on with its life, passing from one stage to another and what it attains ….

A too humble and modest drop of water that has to fight continuously the struggle in/of life and pass through a test that has been presented to it. On a literal level, it discusses the circumstances it has to go through during the whole process called Life. When you look at its life cycle, it has to get itself burnt to actually change from liquid to vapour (vaporization); a process so essential and quite noticeably the Only process that will make it RISE towards the sky. The drops that don’t find the strength or are unable to go through the whole process of burning themselves, losing their physical identity ( at some point under the scorching heat of the sun or fire ) will just meet a fate of loss; a loss that shows itself in the form of the drops getting buried in the sand and losing their identity altogether in the vast expanse and mass of the sand.

It points out another fact that no matter if all these drops are united together like in a great ocean or vast seas, not all will win in changing their fate and taking them to the next, higher level of existence ( the state when they are in the form of vapor hung high in the sky ) . It takes the courage, the strength, the utmost desire of ONE drop to be the First to rise and lead the way for other drops to follow.

The last part though concludes the whole cycle though pointing out another important fact in the water life cycle. The fact that the water’s (drop’s) transition and change of states is CONTINUOUS from solid (ice) to liquid (water) to gas (vapour) and then back to liquid (water) again i.e. When the water rises to the sky and gets accumulated in the clouds and then changes to ice or back to water and falls down as the heavenly shower (rain). The whole process is gradual but continuous and NON STOP.

Though the highly Unreliable nature of drop’s life makes it lose its Physical Identity ( Physical Identity which is a way that others Recognized you, it’s a Reason of Being Known or Attaining Recognition and Fame ) BUT in Reality, Losing this physical identity, this annihilation, this Non existence is the ONLY WAY that makes and paves the way for THE DROP to be actually Attain the Pinnacle, the Highest point, the Perfection and Completion of Self, the Inner Self since this is the ONLY WAY to Achieve Great Goals/the goals that its meant to achieve with the Talents and Potential that lies Within.

MEANING ON THE NON-LITERAL/RHETORICAL LEVEL

It can have multiple meanings and ways of looking at it figuratively. This is one of them.

If we symbolize a human being to a drop, we can see realize that:

Kamal-e-Zaat is all about a Single Individual Attaining the Height of Perfection of its Being.

Kamal-e-Zaat also points out Losing One’s Outer self to Complete the Inner Self. Though this can be interpreted at a Material level too.

The first 2 lines just point out a simple fact that Hard work and Struggle Define, Make and Result in Human Success.

It can also mean that unless one goes through the Tough, Harsh experiences in life, one can’t find the Wisdom, the Depth, the Passion, the Perseverance, the Strong desire to accomplish and attain something. One cannot feel ……..

The third line just explains the fact that People who don’t have endurance, who can’t stand in the face of all odds can’t succeed, are not remembered and are just lost amongst millions of others, not achieving anything.

The fourth and fifth line just tells us the Unity is not Everything ( unity in terms of thinking alike or carrying similar views and opinions). There has to be a Leader, a Revolutionist, a Person who has the Courage, the guts, the Strength, the Character to Take the First Step. To implement the Impossible and to lead the way and shape the destiny of Millions around it. And due to this Person, Success would come to the remaining as they will Follow his True and Just cause

The life in itself is Temporary, Humans are Mortal. Moreover, the life keeps on changes, human beings go through various phases of life from childhood to youth to old age, various chapters in life marked by successes and failures. The inherent nature of life represents change, constant change and nothing is Absolute, nothing is Fixed, Permanent and Forever.

One only attains Immortality through Submitting himself/herself to a Cause, to losing its Own Existence for a Greater good. Such a person remains amongst the living even when he dies and is Relived through their remembrances of him/her. This is the Actual Existence even though Physical Existence Remains No More. It also outlines the fact that Death gives way to a Permanence to Soul and Such Death is actually an Immortal Life of Permanence, of Eternity.

I love Newton! I love Newton's Law of Motions!! December 19, 2009

Newton’s Fourth Law of Motions

I love Newton. My love of Newton started in school actually, during the Physics class. Of all the sciences, Physics was the one that held true to my heart and I loved to know and learn how things around me worked.

I love the fact that an Apple fell on Newton and I love the fact that Newton, therefore discovered gravity. Uncle Newton, as I like to call him, laid down all those Laws of Motion that were taught rigorously in class. Supposedly, after all those years I reminisce those Laws of Motion and what comes to my mind is utterly a nuisance.  Well, I am still very sober though but I hope you really believe in it after looking at the image below.

With all due respect to Newton uncle, whom I love so much and will always do since without him there wouldn’t be an existence of 4th law of Motion or Motions as I rephrased it.

So,

I love Newton.

I love Newton’s 3 laws.

I love the fact that they gave me an opportunity to write a 4th one.

I love the 4th law too (But I am still not quite sure if he or others would be on the same page here ;p . Though the law is tried and tested and really gives instant results 😉

Newton's 4th Law

Newton's 4th Law of Motion

Newton’s Fourth Law of Motion: “When you got Motions; Just go see the doc and get the Shots!!”

Hmm…So if you got Motions, don’t sit around and look at the apple, don’t eat one in any case, don’t even think of letting it fall on your head. Just do what Newton asked you to do in the image above. Oops!! Well , I know uncle Newton will forgive me.

I wish I had a little Sunshine of my Own! December 3, 2009

Sunshine

For my BEST FRIEND FOREVER..I wish I had a little sunshine!!

sunshine

I Wish I Had A little Sunshine Of My Own!!

I wish,

I wish I had a little,

A little sunshine of my own!

So I could give it to you

I need,

I need to have a little,

A little sunshine of my own!

So I would give it to you

I dream,

I dream I had a little,

A little sunshine of my own!

So I would give my dream to you,

Or let you in my dream,

With eyes closed so firm,

To hold the sunshine close,

To pass it on to you,

Or let you share my share,

With eyes so glassy and bare,

To reflect it all to you.

I wish,

I wish I had a little,

A little sunshine of my own!

To give back to my sunshine

A little sunshine of my own!
