These five couplets will inflame your imagination
Urdu poetry has innumerable shers where the two lines do not seem to have any apparent connection. Only after intense thought, one does realize that the two lines have a deep-rooted correlation. Here we bring to you five such shers. Read and give them a thought. We have provided hints for each sher to help you think and understand the real intent of the poet.
Hint: Longing for the beloved is never-ending.
Hint: Wax is a by- product of honey.
Hint: One lives in fear rather than hope
Hint: Expectations are often belied.
Hint: Height is but only an illusion
Do share with us your understanding of these shers.
