Itni Shiddat se Maine Tumhe paane ki Koshish ki hai
Ki har Zarre ne mujhe tumse milane ki Koshish ki hai....
Kehte hai agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaaho toh poori Kaynath tumhein usse milane ki Koshish mein lag jaati hai..

[When you want something with all your heart, the entire Universe comes together to unite you with your desire]

A dialogue from Om Shanti Om. I don't like the movie. But this piece of shayari has stuck with me ever since. Whenever I think about it, it invariably brings a smile back to me. Makes me want to prove myself.

As another famous Urdu saying goes:
Khud ko kar buland itna, ki har taqdeer se pehle, Khuda khud bande se pooche, Bataa, Teri raza kya hai?
[Make yourself so strong, that when God sits down to pen your destiny; he himself chooses to ask you what YOU want your destiny to be]

khud ko kar buland itna,
chadha main jaise taise,
phir khuda me mujhse khud poochha,
abe ab utrega kaise..........

sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab humare dil mein hai,
dekhna hai zor kitna bazuein kaatil mein hai,
hum to ab bhi ladte hai magar eh bismill,
ab toh apni azaadi ladkiyon ke dil mein!
dekhna hai zor kitna bazuein kaatil mein hai

(now i am not this clear in my thoughts, the above piece is from Gulaal, the new anurag kashyap movie)

@kits: Ah! well said..whoever tht is..i thought you wr going all rdb on me..

Ankit Poddar said...


i actually thought of doing that, no really!

but then i read VL's comment, and i was like, i don't wanna lag behind!

Ankit Poddar said...


just struck me, it is saazish and not koshish in the second line!

Blue~Flame said...

@kits: you're just being daft, you know.
I'm not attempting to understand it anyway, so we can all rest in peace.
