Reading progress update: I've read 203 out of 332 pages.

Two thirds of the way through, and even if I had had any doubt whether the guy on the cover of my edition is supposed to be Charles Moray (which I didn’t), I now have confirmation straight from the mouth of the babe (our Teenage Ingenue, aka TSTL heiress-in-peril) — except that whoever created this cover didn’t get the memo about the grey eyes: 561 more words

हम, हमारा इश्क़

हमारे दिल पर राज करना हक़ था उनका,
हम उनसे बेइतहां प्यार करते थे;
फिर भी उन्हें हम पर शक था थोड़ा थोड़ा,
छोड़ कर जब जाना ही था उनको;
अपनी ज़िन्दगी में किसी और को लाना ही जब उनको,
तो क्या उनका मकसद;
सिर्फ इश्क़ में बदनाम करना था हमको।

जो कभी बहारों की खुश्बुओं में ना हों सोये,
क्या उड़ाएंगे उनकी नींद जहां के ये ज़हरीले धुँए,
उम्र तो कम है मेरी मगर इतना जान चुके हूं,
ज़िन्दगी में जिन्हें चाहा सबसे ज्यादा;
साथ उनके ही सबसे पहले हैं छूटे।
