Theme Of The Poem
Great Punjabi Poet Bulleh Shah has said:
Par par aalam faazal hoya
Kadee apnay aap nu parheya nai
Ja ja warda Mandir maseeti
Kadee man apnay wich warrya nai
Aiwayn roz Shaitaan de naal lardaan
Kadee nafs apnay naal larrya nai
(He read a lot and became a scholar
But he never read himself
He runs to pray into the temple & mosque
But never entered into his own heart
He fights with the devil every day for nothing
He never wrestled with his own ego)
The premise of this poem is based on the above mentioned lines i.e. The need of self introspection and the relevance of being truly what you are rather than pretending what you are not.
