(Zarb-e-Kaleem-092) Imtihan

Imtihan
Examination

Kaha Pahar Ki Nadi Ne Sang Raize Se
Fatadgi-o-Sar Afgandagi Teri Miraj!

Afgandagi = girawat, gira hona, aajazi

Thus mountain stream to pebble spake,
“This lowly state for height you take.

Tera Ye Haal Ke Pamaal-o-Dardmand Hai Tu
Meri Ye Shan Ke Darya Bhi Hai Mera Mohtaj

You are tread upon and suffer deal,
How nice! my need the rivers feel.

Jahan Mein Tu Kisi Diwar Se Na Takraya
Kisi Khabar Ke Tu Hai Sang-e-Khara Ya Ke Zujaj!

You never clashed against a wall,
Donʹt know, a stone or glass to call.
