Poem: ‘Jub Umr Ki Naqdi Khatum Hui’ Poet: Ibn-e-Insha Volume: Dil-e-Wehshi (published Posthumous) Notes: This poem is one of the last of Insha. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. While in UK the news of his terminal illness leaked in Pakistan. He received a lot of support from his friends. An anonymous fan of his offered him 5 years of her life to live. This poem is a tribute to this anonymous person from a dying man. –Banjara

    Khalid you (and Insha) have reminded us of the time when “she” will be standing at the door…….staring
    It is not a question of “if”
    It is a question of “when”
