ज़ुल्मत कदी में मेरी शब-ए-ग़म का जोश है
इक शम्मा है दलील-ए-सहर, सो ख़ामोश है
ज़ुल्मत=अंधेरा; दलील=सबूत; सहर=सुबह
दाग़-ए-फ़िराक़-ए-सोहबत-ए-शब की जली हुई
इक शम्मा रह गई है सो वो भी ख़ामोश है
फ़िराक़=जुदाई; सोहबत=साथ; शब=रात; शम्मा=दिया
आते हैं ग़ैब से ये मज़ामीं ख़याल में
ग़ालिब सरीर-ए-ख़ामा नवा-ए-सरोश है
ग़ालिब=छुपा हुआ/रहस्यमय; मज़ामीं=विषय; सरीर=कलम के घिसने की आवाज; ख़ामा=कलम; नवा=आवाज; सरोश=फरिश्ता/देवता

Our Wonderful Quotocracy
by Pratap Bhanu Mehta
courtesy: Indian Express
There is a constitutional revolution underway. It has long been in the making. But its full logic is unfolding now. This new type of regime it will beget defies classification. It cannot be captured by the categories bequeathed by those who understood different regime types: Plato or Polybius, Aristotle or Kautilya, Montesquieu or Madison. This new regime is not a monarchy, aristocracy, republic or a democracy. It has its distinct identity, values and institutional frame. Behold all, the rise of Quotocracy! Experience the bliss that is this new dawn.

This is to condole the sad demise of Boa Sr. who breathed her last yesternight (26th Jan, 2010) at Port Blair.
Boa Sr. was the oldest and the most prolific of the Great Andamanese people of the Andaman Islands. Her death brings a silent catastrophe to the community which lost a heritage that is equal to identity. The deaths of Nao Jr. last year was the loss of the window from that community to the other world. The loss of Boa Sr. is the loss the house itself. What remains now is only the ruins in a shape and size that cannot even tell of the edifice that was there once.

Welcome to this brand new look of my blog! :)
Now this is really interactive website. It really took me a lot to develop this. There are still some glitches on it. My SMTP server does not seem to be working as good as it should. May be it is Vista Ultimate that I switched to a few days ago. Anyways, but thanks to Joomla! CMS, I have done it finally.
This is my personal blog. Earlier it was hosted at Wordpress™, but since I was enthusiast to host a website of own, I started this new site! Looks it would be fun working on it.
As any personal website, I plan to upload stuff of my interest on this website. Currently it has all the content that was there on my wordpress blog. I have already updated some sections of this site. I plan also to upload more works of mine.
