یہ مجھے چین کیوں نہیں پڑتا ایک ہی شخص تھا جہان میں کیا
“Why do I find it so hard to have peace of mind, was there only one person in this world?”
When I heard these words of Jaun Elia it was if he was speaking to my ruh (soul). I could tell from his eyes, even before I heard his words, that he knew loss and deceit just like I did. It felt strange to be connected to someone so similar in disposition and yet so displaced in time. Am I from a bygone era or was he too far ahead of his? I don’t know. Perhaps both of us do not belong to where we come from but I am glad nonetheless to have some spent some time with a fellow sufferer. I wonder what I will make or do that will make my name come alive again on foreign lips long after I am gone. Will I make or do enough to be remembered often or at least occasionally? What about you? Isn’t this enough reason to share your gift with the world?
