- Sahibzada Habiburrahman Qlandar �Momand�
From Sabawoon by Qalandar �Momand�
Qalandar momand has written poems and prose for decades. He fought and struggled during his life for the poor people against injustice in our community. He says,
Gulistan mee ka pa weeno taza keege
Har azghay dee ham zma pa zRa kee maat shee
If the garden need to be fresh by my blood
I hope every thorn breaks in my hearth.
Many of his friends left him during his life. Let�s read what he says about it:
Tasoo ka reshta da menee prekRa, raana beel shway
Za ba mo da laaree rafeeqaanoo yaadawom
Haagha chee rawaan day, zRa chaawdalay, pkhee taNaakee
Haagha Qalandar darta yaraanoo yaadawoom.
If you cut the relationship of love, and did separate
I�ll remember you as hardship buddies
The man who still walks broken hearth and inflamed feet
That is Qalander I am talking about.
Qalandar �Momand� is a strong, honest, the man of rules and self conscious Pakhtoon.
He left many friends or his friends left him because of the entire above attribute.
Daw ba kRee yaaraan pree Qalandara deer
Ta chee kooma laar da zhwandaana ghwaaRee
Qlaladar! You will sacrifice a lot of friends (friendships)
For the way you have chosen for your life.
Because of this struggle he had never acted as a hypocrite. He was honest all the time. That is why he suffered a lot. For example he says,
Zmong pa barkha haagha wreezee chee azghee loyawee
Haagha chee gul tokawee, hagha pa chaa wawareedee?
The clouds that growing thorns were our portions
Who did it rain on, which grows the flowers?
He also says,
Ka zandaan kee mee zRa tang woo kho qafas woo
Gulestaan kee mee daa walee zaRgay tang day?
If my hearth was annoyed in the jail, it is because it is a cage
But why did my hearth annoyed in the garden?
Qlandar Momand also wrote in Urdu and English. He is a great Pakhtun journalist.
