10: Why 'Justuju' or Longing Is Actually the Essence Of Life
Play • 10 min
In this episode of Urdunama, find out how our Justuju or desire for better things is actually the essence of our lives. Our aspirations, goals, and all the planning we do to achieve them prepares us for the great scheme of things in our lives.

Urdu poet Altaf Hussain Hali has written about this thought in this beautiful couplet.

Hai justuju ki khoob se hai khoob tar kahaan, 
ab theherti hai dekhiye jaakar nazar kahan.

The first line says that the heart is always on the quest to find the best of the best things. We always have another desire even before having achieved the one that hasn't yet been fulfilled. In the second line, the poet wonders that at what point will all his longings stop.

Tune in.
