Remembering my Space


Yeah well as you must have heard that “appearances are often deceiving”. Well that is the case of the title of this post 😛

Actually this was not my first blog per-say. In fact I started blogging way back in December 2004. I was still in university and it was my 4th semester of BCS. Back then all these things like social networking, blogging, etc was not that “in”. At that time msn came up with msn “spaces” a sort of a blog but it was much more “kewl” than the blogs we had today. And I loved it for its interface, and easy customizability and widgets.

But over time first I moved to blogger and then to wordpress for its larger audience but also because msn gave notice that they are going to shutdown spaces. (!@$(!%@@!$ ). But they at the end gave an option to import all my posts. But “only” my posts not all the lot of other data like photo albums, lists, etc. Anyways I have bored you enough, so let’s come to the point of order.

So I have decided that I will repost some of the stuff from my “space” here. It will keep my blog active and I don’t have to do much effort … my lazy self is so happy for this ingenious plan of mine 😀

So if you haven’t dare’d to hit the follow button yet … now is the time!


P.S. Today 24th November is the birthday of my most favorite poetess of all time … the legend “Parween Shakir”

kuch to hawa bhi sard thi kuch tha tera khiyal bhi…

dil ko khushi k saath saath hota raha malaal bhi…


baat wo adhi raat ki raat wo purey chand ki

chand bhi unchait ka uspe tera jamaal bhi…


sab se nazar bacha k wo mujhe kuch ayse dekhta

ek baar tu ruk gaya gardish-e-mahoo saal bhi…


dil tu chamak sakey ga kia phir bhi tarash k dekh lain

sheesha garan-e-shehar k haath ka ye kamaal bhi…


usko na pa sakey thai jab dil ka ajab haal tha

ab jo palat k dekhiye baat thi kuch muhaal bhi…


meri talab tha ek shaks wo jo nhy mila tu phir

haath dua se yun gira bhool gaya sawal bhi…


uski sukhan tarashiyan mere liye bhi dhaal thein

uski hansi main chup gaya apne ghumon ka haal bhi…


gah-e-kareeb shahrag gah-e-baeed wehm-o-guman

uski rafakatoon mai raat hijar bhi thi wasal bhi…


us ky hi baazowon main rahey or us ko hi soochty rahy

jism ki khawahishoon pe thy rooh k or jaal bhi


shaam ki nasamjh hawa pooch rahi hai ekpata

mauj-e-hawa-e-ku-e-yaar , kuch to mera khayal bhi !
