Wo Dard Woh Wafa Wo Muhabbat Tamam Shud...

Wo Dard Woh Wafa Wo Muhabbat Tamam Shud... Ley Dil Main Tere Qurb Ki Hasrat Tamam Shud...

Principal vs. Principle

Principal vs. Principle
What’s the difference between principal and principle? The principle is of principal importance. Here’s the background for these close cousins, as well as related terms. Principal derives by way of French from the Latin term principalis, meaning “first in importance.” In English, it initially referred to a ruler, but the word also came to be associated with an amount of money on which interest is paid, because that sum is first in terms of priority and the interest (one hopes) is a relative small amount. Only about two hundred years ago did principal come to be associated with education; the principal, or first, teacher was often also head of the school, and “principal teacher” was simplified to principal. The word is still often used as an adjective, as in “principal violinist” or “principal consideration.” Principle, by contrast, though it was originally merely a spelling variant, came to mean “proposition or truth,” and later “law of nature” and “rule of cond…

Wo dil navaz hy nazar shanaas nahi Mera ilaaj mere chara'gar k paas nahi
Tarap rahy hain zabaN pr kaii saval mgr Mere lye koi shayan-e-iltamas nahi
Tere ujalon me b dil kaaNp kaaNp uTh'ta hy Mere mizaj ko aasodgi b raas nahi
Kabi kabi jo tere qarb me guzry thy Ab un dino ka tasav'vur b mere paas nahi
Guzar rahy hain ajab marhalon se deeda-o-dil Seher ki aas to hy zindagi ki aas nahi
Mujhe ye Dar hy k teri arzo na miT jaye Bohat dino se tabiyat meri udaas nahi

What Is Irony?

What Is Irony?
Recently I was walking and talking with my co-worker, who happens to be a freelance writer and aspiring journalist. We were talking about the fact that our employers were providing us with a Thanksgiving lunch the day after Thanksgiving, and she said, “It’s so ironic!’’ – all emphasis and drawing-out of syllables possible used on the last word. This is a smart girl I’m talking about. She’s a college graduate and has done her fair share of writing and reporting. And even so, she doesn’t know the definition of irony. Merriam-Webster defines irony as: 1: a pretense of ignorance and of willingness to learn from another assumed in order to make the other’s false conceptions conspicuous by adroit questioning —called also Socratic irony 2: a) the use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning
b) a usually humorous or sardonic literary style or form characterized by irony
c) an ironic expression or utterance 3: a) : incongruity betwe…

Nahi jo dil men jaga to nazar men rehne do

Nahi jo dil men jaga to nazar men rehne do Meri hayat ko apne asar men rehne do
Koi to khuwab meri raat ka muQaddar ho Koi to aks meri chashm-e-tar men rehne do
Main apni soch ko teri gali men chor aaya Tum apni yaad ko mere hunar men rehne do
Ye manzilen to kisi aur ka muQaddar hen Mujhe bus apne junoon k safar men rehne do
HaQiQaten to bohat talkh ho gayi hen Mere wajood ko khuwabon k ghar men rehne do

Mitt gaya hon mujko mitta rehne do

Mitt gaya hon mujko mitta rehne do, Mere jazbaat K sholon ko buja rehne do,
Dard sehne ki hai bachpan hi se aadat mujko, Mere riste hue zakhmon ko hara rehne do,
Ab to tabeer ki hasrat hi nai hai mujko, Meri aankhon men mera khuwab chupa rehne do,
Muskurahat pe mera HAQ hi nai hai yaaro, Mere honto se tabasam ko khafa rehne do,
Dil jo toota hai tu aankhen na chalak jaen Sagar, Aj ankhon ko in ashkon se bhara rehne do.

Ho raat akeli pichly pehar

Ho raat akeli pichly pehar, or chand angan mai aa jaye. Tum chand ki manind tanha ho, ye baat hamain tarpa jaye.
Kuch khwab saja kar palkoN pe, tum chand sy batain ker laina. Ham yaad tumhi ko karty hain, tum yaad hamain bhi kar laina.
Kuch baat na ho jab aisy hi, nam aankh tumhari ho jaye. Tum baat kahin pe karty ho, dil or kahin pe kho jaye.
Jazbat k aisy alam mai, muskan labon pe bhar lena. Ham yaad tumhi ko karty hain, tum yaad hamain bhi kar lena

Wether, Weather, Whether

Wether, Weather, Whether
Wether is a prime example of a word that will slip past the spell check. It is easily confused with two of its homonymswhether and weather. Flying fingers find it easy to miss the single letter that separates them. Unless you’re a farmer, you might not even know that wether is either a: male sheep or ram (the Oxford Dictionary of Etymology traces its roots to Old English, Old High German, Old Norse and Goth) or a: castrated ram or billy goat (according to A Word A Day). We all know that MS Word can be easily confused, but there’s no need for us to face the same confusion. Weather, that stuff up there in the sky, is the ‘condition of the atmosphere with respect to heat or cold, calm or storm, etc’. That’s according to the Oxford Dictionary of Etymology. Interestingly, when it was first used in Old English in the 12th century, weather always had adverse implications. In the 14th century, the term also referred to the wind direction, and its roots lie in various …

Chalo aaisa krain mil ke sitaray bant letay hain

Chalo aaisa krain mil ke sitaray bant letay hain Zarurat ke motabiq hum saharay bant letay hain
Muhabat krne walon ki tijarat bhe anokhi hai Munafa chor detay hain khisaray bant letay hain
Agr milna nahi mumkin to lehron pr kadam rakh kr Abi Dariya-e-Ulfat ke kinaray bant letay hain
Meri jholi mein jitnay bhe wafa ke phool hain inko Akathay baith kr saray bant letay hain
Riwayat ke Elawa pas apnay kuch nahi lekin Isi dolat ko hum qismat ke maray bant letay hain.

That vs. Which

That vs. Which
One of our readers, Justin, recently wrote to ask: When proofreading a peer’s article on the solar system, I realized that she, and I, are unsure of the proper use of “that” and “which” in a sentence. Below is [SIC] two examples of the same sentence, one using “that” and the other “which.” “To our knowledge, it is the only body in the solar system which currently sustains life, although several other bodies are under investigation.”“To our knowledge, it is the only body in the solar system that currently sustains life, although several other bodies are under investigation.” Which is the correct sentence, and what is the general rule of thumb? Justin, I’ll give you the answer now, rather than making you read to the end of the whole article: the second version of that sentence, using that is correct. When To Use “That” and When To Use “Which” Before I come on to the “that”/”which” rule, just a reminder that “who” should always be used when referring to people. The boy who t…

Don't eat chowmein, it leads to rape, says Haryana khap leader

Please be updated that this is not a work of fiction but yet another extremely strong **** that "It Happens Only in India", this is not my writeup in total but an article halfway captured from a leading news/mag website:

A khap panchayat in Haryana's Jind district has blamed consumption of chowmein behind the growing incidents of rapes in the state saying it leads to hormonal imbalance.

As one of the site stated:

Rapes are not caused by patriarchal notions of masculinity. Nor is the objectification of women as property or as symbols of honour the reason why rapes happen. Then why the growing incidence of this horrific crime?
A Haryana Khap leader has come up with his own novel explanation, where he lays the blame squarely on..."Chowmein".

"To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents. Chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts," Jitender Chhatar, a resident of Jind's Chhatar village an…

During lunch at work last week, I ate 3 plates of beans (which I know I shouldn't). When I got home, my husband seemed excited to see me and exclaimed delightedly: "Darling I have a surprise for dinner tonight." He then blindfolded me and led me to my chair at the dinner table. I took a seat and just as he was about to remove my blindfold, the telephone ...rang. He made me promise not to touch the blindfold until he returned and went to answer the call. The beans I had consumed were still affecting me and the pressure was becoming unbearable, so while my husband was out of the room I seized the opportunity, shifted my weight to one leg and let one go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in front of a garbage dump!!!! I took my napkin from my lap and fanned the air around me vigorously. Then, shifting to the other leg, I ripped off three more. The stink was worse than cooked cabbage. Keeping my ears c…

Paida rah-e-khaloos main dushwarian na kar

Paida rah-e-khaloos main dushwarian na kar Chahat nahi tou hum se adakaarian na kar
Lafzon se khalne ki zaroorat nahi tujhe sada dilon ke saath yeh fan.kaarian na kar
Jin Se nahi lagao unhain munh bhi mat laga Be waja har dukan se kharidaarian na kar
Tu shakh-e-gul hai koi amar bail tu nahi Wabasta har shajar se wafadaarian na kar
Iss bheer se pare bhi hai abad khalq-e-shair Apne hi doston ki taraf darian na kar
Iss shugal-e-bejawaz se kya faida tujhe Dil mat dukha kisi ki dil aazaarian na kar
Taza hai dil pe dagh agar pehli choat ka Phir dosri shikast ki tayyarian na kar

100 Beautiful and Ugly Words

100 Beautiful and Ugly Words
One of the many fascinating features of our language is how often words with pleasant associations are also quite pleasing on the tongue and even to the eye, and how many words, by contrast, acoustically and visually corroborate their disagreeable nature — look no further than the heading for this post. Enrich the poetry of your prose by applying words that provide precise connotation while also evoking emotional responses. (Note the proportion of beautiful words to ugly ones in the compilation below; it’s easier to conjure the former than the latter, though I omitted words associated with bodily functions, as well as onomatopoeic terms.) Notice how often attractive words present themselves to define other beautiful ones, and note also how many of them are interrelated, and what kind of sensations, impressions, and emotions they have in common. Also, try enunciating beautiful words as if they were ugly, or vice versa. Are their sounds suggestive of their q…

Yours faithfully, Yours sincerely, Sincerely yours

Yours faithfully, Yours sincerely, Sincerely yours,
In 1928 H. W. Fowler listed these phrases and their uses: Yours faithfully (to unknown person on business)
Yours truly (to slight acquaintance)
Yours very truly (ceremonious but cordial)
Yours sincerely (in invitations and friendly but not intimate letters) With slight variations between British and American usage, these forms are still in use. If you don’t know the name of the recipient… Yours faithfully is British usage. It is used when the recipient is not addressed by name, as in a letter with a “Dear Sir” salutation. I have never seen it in correspondence between Americans. That’s not to say it won’t catch on. I’ve come across letter-writing guides on the web that imply that it is standard American usage. Yours truly is the American equivalent of “yours faithfully” that I was taught by my American business teachers. When I begin a letter “Dear Sir,” I close it with “Yours truly.” When you do know the name of the recipient… Yours sincere…

100 Mostly Small But Expressive Interjections

100 Mostly Small But Expressive Interjections
They often seem disreputable, like sullen idlers loitering in a public thoroughfare, but they actually do a lot of hard work and are usually persnickety about the tasks to which they are put. They are interjections — one class of them, anyway: those lacking etymological origins but packed with meaning. But how do you know how to distinguish similar ones — or spell them, for that matter? Here’s an incomplete inventory of interjections (not including variations of actual words such as yeah for yes or onomatopoeic echoes of externally produced sounds like boom): Ack communicates disgust or dismissal. Ah can denote positive emotions like relief or delight (generally, pronounced with a long a). Aha signals triumph or surprise, or perhaps derision. Ahem is employed to gain attention. Argh, often drawn out with additional h’s, is all about frustration. Aw can be dismissive or indicative of disappointment, or, when drawn out, expressive of sympathy or a…
