A Perpetual Love Affair


I am greatly fascinated by her; I simply love her sight and all places and abodes where ever she resides is like a sacred sanctuary to me. My love affair started with her at my adolescence, she was so young and beautiful than, she has maintained her youth and majesty and grown even prettier. To her overwhelming and startling beauty, grace has been added. Her acquaintance is like a treasure to me an insurmountable treasure that she fosters.

Her feel, her contours, the scent of her smell all combined makes her the most ravishing, most exotic and highly desirable. Her beauty is not just skin deep she has added other dimensions to her serenity , her exalted beauty transcends all known barriers of time and space. She coexists with me despite various differences of opinions and sometimes with even divergent and opposite views.

What ever I hide from myself I see in her and whatever others hide from me I discover all in her, she is like a mirror to me, a mirror that see's within and also without, I call her my BOOK.

Book talks to me and I frequently indulge in conversation with her. During reading, I often, start reading into her which makes me the co-author of the Book. I have always maintained that Book is written by three writers, one who pen's the script, second the character which is being scripted, third is the reader who is not a passive but an active author of book, as book evolves with the participation of reader, it grows outside and also inside the reader, a most astonishing and rare phenomenon something incomparable with other things but only equal to that miraculous human spirit.

    Keep up the beautiful, tight, cleverly poignant work, friend!!!

    Because of you, I know I will at last become the reader I once was...and of the sort of books I've always loved...(And some credit also goes to Khurram Ali Shafique!

    By the way, would all of you please watch for a new and beautifully-hearted fellow from the Pashto area to maybe show up and make him very welcome? Just in case...

  5. hmmm...I simply fell in love with your post...Dar Sahib...what a illustrations and dialogues...

    I adored this line...before and still find it amusing and true....

    "Book is written by three writers, one who pen's the script, second the character which is being scripted, third is the reader who is not a passive but an active author of book, as book evolves with the participation of reader, it grows outside and also inside the reader".

    Your post has made me again to think and to love my books...to find true friendship and everlasting relationship.

    Books....I called them my part time lovers...hmm...

    They don't have any rules...all the set of rules are from readers....whenever...wherever...whatever the book you choose...they are ready to give you the full authority over them....

    I called them...best furniture...

    Simply superb post Dar Sahib....

    hmmm...I have took the printour of this post to keep it in my selection....thanks !

    my idea is not of a docile companion but one who is at peace but also belligerent , logical but emotionally charged, intellectual but spiritually stimulated.

    Thanks for your very heartfelt appreciation and liking I am pleased, but if there is any good thing in the post it is because of you, as I pointed out in my opening comment that the post was inspired from your writings, if anything is good about this, the credit goes to you.

  9. I can certainly see how you, Thinking inspired, via your writings, this piece! As you are also inspiring me and although a very "slow starter" which such imagination linked to reality...IF I start as an artist - imaginary writer of such pieces this will also be because of you more than 50 % worth anyway! I am so happy to be in this little community of writers, readers and dreamers...

  10. hmmm...Dar Sahib...you gave me too much credit...

    But anyways...if you are insisting...I am taking it...but what a responsibility???

    Thank you so much for giving me such honor...blushed me away...

    Thank you so much.
