Ab main samjha

Writing again. After almost an year. Because when you are reminded of things you used to enjoy, you should thank the reminder and get back to doing them.

Ghulam Ali playing in the background. This version of 'Hungama hai kyon barpa' starts with this killer sher:

Ab main samjha tere rukhsaar pe til ka matlab
Daulat-e-husn pe darbaan bitha rakha hai.

That is a good end to a day that started when I woke up to another couple of really nice lines on TV (which  had Shakespeare in Love on):

I must hear from thee every day of the hour
For in a minute there are many days.
