Mail from Mohsin

Category: Personal.

I received a mail from Mohsin. He was my colleague in Bangalore.

He sent this sher.

Lakh nagma bemisaal hai mera
Asl ki naql kamal hai mera
Duniya samaj thi hai uruj lekin
Mohsin yeh hai zawaal tera

That's a nice Sher, Mohsin.

Let me translate this.

A lakh extraordinary songs are mine
To duplicate the truth is my art
The world thinks of this as progress
Oh Mohsin this is your downfall

Mohsin, I remember the songs we used to sing in the cab on our way back home from the night-shift, and the Shayaris we used to recite on the terrace, and during the training sessions. :-)
