Vaah Jafri Sahab

Husain Haqqani's column, carried by The Nation starts off by saying:

Recent events indicate that General Pervez Musharraf has no intention of becoming the first ruler in Pakistani history to relinquish power without first trying to hold on to it by all means, fair or foul.
I am reminded of my favourite humourous poet Syed Mohammad Jafri's tazmeen of Ghalib:
Hazaaroñ kürsiaañ aesee keh har kürsee peh dam niklay Jo inn par baeth kar khüd say üthay hoñ aesay kam niklay

Waah! Bohat khoob!

The couplet sums up very aptly, the effect that the lust for power can have on people.
