Peace Dr. Shabbir Sahib,

YOON MASHA'LON KI TARHA AYE DOST, SULAGTAY REHNA
TUM ANDHAIRON KO UJALON MEIN BADALTAY REHNA
..........................................

VO APNI KHOO NA CHORAIN GEY, HAM APNI WAZ'A KO KYOON BADLAIN
KHUD SAR BUN KAY KYOON POOCHEN HUM SAY SARGRDAAN KYOON HO
..................................................

NIKALA CHAHATAA HAI KAAM KYA TA'NON SAY TU "GHALIB"
TERE BIMAR HONAY PER VOH TUJH PE MEHRBAAN KYOON HO
..................................................

TUM BHI MOUHABBAT KI BAAT KARO MEIN UHABBAT KI BAAT KARTA HON
..................................................

ABB TAK KEH ANDHERON MAIN BHATKA HUWA THA TU
GAR ROSHNI KI CHAAH HAI, NOOR E KHUDA SEY MAANG

Lovely Ashaarr, Janab Lalchand "Gehi",

You are blessed with a high aesthetic sense---and this precious gift never comes alone.

It reflects on many aspects of your life. Your family and friends are the first ones to appreciate and value this generosity from the Providence upon you.

You know that it is something which cannot be created. So, you command my respect for that.

Mark Twain correctly said that those who are bereft of the precious blessing of aesthetics, fail to even suspect the enormity of loss they suffer at every step through the entire journey of their life.

Take away aesthetics and we are left with 'baloney' or a pitch dark void in our lives.

You will like these ah'aar:

UN KI MEHFIL MEIN BAITH KAR DEKHO
ZINDAGI KITNI KHUBSOORAT HAI

and

JIN SAY MIL KAR ZINDAGI SAY PIYAR HO JAAEY WO LOGE
AAP NAY SHAAYAD NA DAIKHAY HON MAGAR AISAY BHI HAIN

Are you a fan of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, Sir?

Thanks a lot! What refreshing breeze through the foggy atmosphere around us!
