Mukammal Jahaan.

Somehow in the past week, everything has ended up reminding me of this. Priceless Nida at his best. The endless search of all those friends trying to get married, or trying to stay married, or searching for the better job, the better house, trying to find trade offs, yeh nahi to yeh sahi. From the trivial to the not so trivial... But finally, there it is- the mythical 'complete' world .. it doesn't exist.

kabhi kisi ko mukammal jahaan nahi milta
kahin zami to kahin aasmaa nahi milta

jise bhi dekhiye vo apne aap mein gum hai
zubaa mili hai magar humzubaa nahi milta

bujhaa saka hai bhala kaun vaqt ke shole
ye aisi aag hai jisme dhuaa nahi milta

tere jahaan mein aisa nahi ki pyaar na ho
jahaa ummeed ho iski vahaan nahi milta.
