ghurbat main hon...

Medieval Quarter, Barcelona (2005) Posted by Hello

Ah the delight at coming across invocations of Desh in such distant lands, to know that the unknown brother who spends the nights spraying graffiti on the property of shop-keepers he sullenly dislikes by day, he too shares a confused love of a confused idea. Desh!

Ghurbat main hon agar hum, rehta hai dil watan main
Samjho wahin hamein bhi, dil ho jahan hamaara!

- Mohammad Iqbal, from the song that needs no naming
