While work has kept me busier than usual, I have been doing some reading – on both Spiritual and Poetic ends. A lot has happened since I wrote Khudkushi back in August last year including thoughts of trying out different courses in life, wife of my brother’s high school friend committing suicide and so on. May be her Suicide had something to do with the visit of some fleeting verses as they came by this evening. So I just decided to put them down. I won’t necessarily call it a sequel to Khudkushi as both contain different messages, but I reckon the gist is the same. Though the language may a bit more khaalis than Khudkushi but I tried my best to point out the esoteric words. Comments, as always are welcome.
I hope you are able to understand what I wanted to say. The protagonist of this Nazm is speaking to you after committing suicide…Here is a late night recitation I recorded in June 2011.[audio:http://gdhar.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Khudkushi_ke-bad.mp3]
