Her heart rebels and brazenly denies…

  1. The sun sets in her expectant eyes,
    Her heart rebels and brazenly denies…

    Beautiful lines:
    Shah Abdul Latif writes 5 chapters of his renown book Shah Jo Risalo for Sasai, a loving character of Sindh:
    Following is English Translation of Chapter 1 of Sur Sasai:

    1
    Now or after, my destiny
    is my Beloved one-
    The labour of poor one, O God
    let it in vain not be
    I beg for nothing, but to see
    my loved-one in this life
    2
    Sasui’s heart breaks from pain’s torment and rends all hearts around; Immaculate Sasui, her eyes
    are e’er on Punhu bent;
    Her virtuous mind on Beauty of
    the glorious One intent; Faithful up to the last…all spent- the maid in mountains dies.
    3
    Sasui, undone by longing, yet affects the longing more; Drank deep of Punhu’s company and yet for more doth fret;
    Aye, still more thirsty they do get who drink draughts from this stream.
    4
    Seeing the flood of Beauty, they who drank a sip from there
    It all the more increased their thirst their longing and despair; Although they live in mid-stream ne’er this boundless thirst is quenched,
    5
    Sasui, before you follow Punhu, feel your utter helplessness; Take naught for granted, attitude unservant like do not possess; Oh, with yourself take only love, and without ‘Self’ you must progress… Make no approach to Azazil,
    to save yourself from deep distress; Keep company with hopelessness so that you nearer come to hope.
    6
    Do not rejoice in comfort, seeing sorrow do not fear…
    In sacrifice don’t crush your own, nor houses new do rear;
    Dead one, don’t die, in no case here try to maintain your life.

    1. Good going. However, the sun did not set in her eyes because she was closing them. Her eyes were open and the sun set in them. Meaning, the sun of hope set in her eyes that were still expectant and hopeful. Her heart rebelled against this dying of hope and denied it/revolted against it. So, even in the most hopeless situation, her heart did not fail her. She did not fail herself.
