Agony of love

Poem by Rehman Baba

ته چې ماته وايې چې په څه کوې ژړا
نه درمعلومېږي دغه خپل جور و جفا
ته جور و جفا کړې زه ژړا کوم دلبره
ستا که دغه نه وى دا به هم نه وى زما

You ask, my love, about my tears
But don’t you recognize the fears
That agonize my heart?
Were not your infidelity
Torturing me so cruelly
My sorrows would depart

څه ښادي به کاندي طايفه د عاشقانو
رسم د بتانو که همدا وي لکه ستا
دا خصلت چې ستا دى که هم تل په دغه شان وي
نه رامعلومېږي د دردمند د زړه دوا

How can your lovers joyful be
If practicing idolatry
Is just like loving you?
If this your real nature is
What wounded heart can find release?
What medicine will do?

يو دا ستا ماڼى شو بل غرور د رقيبانو
وار په وار مې وژني کله هغه کله دا
هر چې عاشقي کا که په قطع افلاطون وي
زه خو يې مجنون ګڼم که نن وي که سبا

I sense, that you have turned aside
I suffer from my rivals’ pride
I’m killed in either way,
If one makes love to Plato’s tune
To me he’ll always be Manjun
Tomorrow as today

سپى هم په عذاب د جدايۍ د وژلو نه دى
زه خو ګوندې ستا د کوڅې سپى شوم په وېنا
هيڅ يې پکار نه دي رحمان تا غواړي دلبره
دا زما رضا ده باقي هر چې ستا رضا

No dog is subject to such pain
I’m like a watchdog in your lane
And yet I suffer still,
A dog wants naught, RAHMAN wants you
This single goal I must pursue
Whatever be your will

(Translated by Jens Enevoldsen, from the book The Nightingale of Peshawar: Selected Poems of Rehman Baba)

    enable indexes using:

    Options +Indexes
    IndexOptions FancyIndexing

    turn on/off php variables:

    php_flag display_errors On

    php_flag register_globals On

    block sites using:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://.*badsite\.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://.*otherbadsite\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule .* – [F]

    note the OR if you want to add block more than one domain.

    block IPs using:

    order allow,deny
    deny from 192.168.0.101
    deny from 10.0.0.
    allow from all

    first example 192.168.0.101, you block that particular ip

    second example 10.0.0., you block all ips starting with 10.0.0.
