    Dear Masood Anwar,
    Good one!!!
    It reminds me of: “kissi ney aik sahab sey poocha key aap shaadi say pehlay kyaa kartey thhey, javaab milaa key ” jo kuch bhee dil mein aataa thaa vo kartaa thaa”. Do not want to take anything away from nice English poetry!!!!

  3. Col (R) Shah Alam (34 PMA) says:

    Good one, Masood. The finesse still gleams and confirms that “Aatish abhi bhi jawan hai” :)

  4. Maj (R) Aziz-ur-Rehman, Air Def (15 War Course) says:

    A beautiful composition and could be a reflection of sentiments of majority of young ones, who are transformed into new mould after marriage.

  5. Maj (R) Hasan Jawaid (USA), 1st SSC says:

    True, thoughtful, and a good poetic reflection. Very nice.
