بازیچہء اطفال ہے دُنیا مِرے آگے
ہوتا ہے شب و روز تماشا مِرے آگے

A dear Pakistani friend posted this famous couplet by a renowned meastro and her comment on Face Book . It translates somewhat like this. “I find the world like a children’s playground where people keep making silly spectacles of themselves day-in day-out”. 

I was reminded of this seeing our politicians’ feverish election campaigns where all corrupt, tax-evading, scheming, liars, thieves and cheats are trying to prove that they are the messiahs the nation direly needs, and it will be a colossal national loss if they are not re-elected.
