Wafaa or Anaa ? वफ़ा या अना ?

       क़र्ब के ना वफ़ा के होते हैं 
      झगड़े सारे अना के होते हैं 
                    ~ फ़ैज़ अहमद फ़ैज़  ~ 

Qarb kay na vafaa ke hotay hain
Jhagday saare anaa ke hote hain 
                      ~Faiz Ahmad Faiz~

( Neither to gain closeness, nor for the sake of love
All quarrels and fights are - to satisfy one’s 'ego' )

क़र्ब     Qarb       -     Closeness 
अना     Anna      -     Ego
