Service Announcement on Registrations

From the Engine Room: due to the large number of malware/spam bots attempting to register on the site every day (which has now come to the attention of the website provider, too) I have temporarily suspended access to the registration webform. Registration is still possible, but only I can do it, so if you'd like to become a member of Aglardh please send me an email.

 

Thank you and apologies for any inconvenience caused. I will be looking into addressing the issue via a security module in the future.

Allama Iqbal: Two Planets

I came across Allama Iqbal's poem Two Planets the other day and thought I might give it a try. I rearranged the rhyme structure a little bit in the first half out of necessity.
The original was written in Urdu, which I don't speak, so I worked from the English translation. I can only hope I have not turned the poem into a game of Chinese whispers.
