The Week, in the December 3 Edition, has a story of Imroz's love for Amrita... and it has 2 superb pieces of poetry... methinks both by HER..
Can someone please please lay their hands on this copy and get me those two pieces of poetry?
In the meantime, read this and you will know why one is so desperate to get that stuff..
Amrita once wrote of her love for Imroz:
kisi ka jurm ho, karte hain tere naam rakm,
Gila hai jo bhi kisi se vo tere sabab se hai..
No matter who wrongs me, the blame rests with you,
All my anger, with anyone in the world, is because of you..
(Don't bother trying to make sense of this in a rational model of love)
And this, in her own words, is the sarmaya(gist) of her life:
kuchh dard tha, jo maine cigarette ki tarah kiya hai
kuchh nazmein hain, jo raakh ki tarah jhaadi hain..
nazm kaagaz ko dekhe, aur yun munh mode,
Jaise kaagaz paraya mard ho...
