Wayward thoughts: First impressions

First impressions are about instinct. Instincts are about memory. Memories are about knowledge. Knowledge is about experiencing. Experiences are about trying. Trying is about going ahead with first impressions.

They, therefore, also become the last.

I love Mumbai by instinct and experience. Have put up a poll and only one answer allowed, for it is about first impressions.

  1. Farzana,
    Koi shikwa to Nahin.Thanks for sharing .Urdu /hindi poetry and the description of distance leaves us wanting for love even when we have it all.Sorrows of separation do not allow the meetings to be joyful.
    Zindagi bhi nahin.

    Your writing about the poem makes it almost like conversation with a friend and without a mulakaat.Oh at least when there is no meeting there is no fear of separation.

    I think you meant to post this with the song from 'Aandhi'...it feels good to be able to connect, and yes when there is no meeting there is no fear of separation though other fears remain...perception vs. reality...
