What is Love

September 30, 2014

By Hasaan Khawar

“What is love”, the little girl asked. The old man smiled and said: “Have you ever listened to a beautiful melodious tune, which when you hear for the first time, the clock tends to stop, the mind starts to wander into the less frequented corridors of your past, the heart comes into a perfect synch with the notes and you tell yourself this is just the right moment? That melody, my child, is known as love, and that very moment is the essence of it, no matter how short-lived it may be. And life is no more than a rare collection of those precious jewels. So live them to the fullest while they last, because they never come back just like a picturesque scenery, which you take a glimpse at, before the fast moving train of life takes you ahead.”

Tricks of Time

I have always wondered why my clock always moves in a direction opposite to my heart. When I want it to stop, it races. When I want it to race, it seems to stop. The moments I want to make eternal, pass through like a flash and the moments I want to pass quickly last for a life time.

Thursdays

Thursdays mean so many different things to different people. While most of us start to gear up for the weekend, making plans to catch up with friends and family, those of us who are compulsive workaholics, start to get jitters on how they are going to survive without their fiefdom of work. Productivity gurus would anxiously look at their ‘to do’ list to see what’s left over, while procrastinators would take a sigh of relief. Teenagers, who otherwise would welcome the end of school on weekends, would be dreading two days to spend with parents, after five days of unsupervised relaxation in summer vacations. The faithful would start to look forward to their weekly prayers, while those with worldly pursuits would start counting their treasures. The lucky ones with a life of purpose must be looking at their week with pride of fulfillment, while the rest would look at it as ‘just another week’ passing by. The optimists would be all set to welcome the start of a new week and the pessimists would be gripped by fears of unknown. Up in the sky, the founders of Gregorian calendar must be feeling proud, how their arbitrary division of time is touching millions of ordinary mortals, while we continue to slowly inch towards the Friday!
