I had been thinking of posting this Nazm by Javed Akhtar for quite some time now and finally decided to put it out this evening. Although it really is a very short and simple Nazm, but there is still something in it, that makes me want to read it over and again. A personal choice I reckon. Here’s the recital in Javed Akhtar’s own voice. Enjoy.
