Aap sub kee khidmat mein: Was COVID-19 predicted in 1790?
Mir Taqi Mir Ka Aik Laazawal She'r (said in 1790 approx)
AJEEB DARD HAI JIS KEE DAWA HAI TANHAI
BAQAAEY SHAHR HAI UB SHAHR KAY UJARNAY MEIN
[Weird is the hurt whose remedy is isolation- Survival of the town now lies in its own destruction]
Does it reflect on COVID-19?
Salam o Rahmat
'Ajeeb dard hai jiski dawa hai tanhaee
Baqa'e shahr hai ab shahr ke ujarnay mein'
My translation [Weird is the hurt whose remedy is isolation- Survival of the town now is its own destruction]
This is a most pertinent and befitting she'r for the Corona-shaken world (SEHMI HUI DUNYA).
Thanks & blessings!
