I was wondering in the random world

I was wondering yet again, one click after another took me into the depths of the virtual world. I lost track of where I had begun, how I had started and why had I wondered away. I then found myself on the wiki of the true father of Pakistan. The guy who dreamt of a muslim state and passed the torch to Jinnah they say. He is no other than the man who gave us "Sare Jahan Se Achaa". I was in disbelief, having sung that song in my terrible voice all through my childhood in school assemblies; I now realized that this man was the one who never really believed in the true hindustan or did history corrupt yet another story of Sir Dr. Muhammad Iqbal.

Such are the ironies of life...I didn't know this thing about "saare jahan se accha" - interesting...

Wonder why he changed his mind about "hindustan", if at all, to ask for a sperate Pakistan...
