The Betrayal

Those who runied me

Weren’t so unknown

My boat sank

Amongst shallow waters

 

The above is the translation of a famous Urdu couplet, mostly written on the backs of buses and rickshaws in Karachi 😀

Here is the original Urdu version:

Mujhay apnou ny loota
Ghairoun mei kaha dum tha

Meri khasti waha dobi
Jahan pani kum tha

 

For The Daily Post’s Shallow
