Eid Festivities that Speak of it’s Grandeur 

Sewaiyan on all stalls, in explicit varieties. Women shopping all night as if shops would never be available again. Men matching their kurtas with excitement to offer Eid’s Namaz this year. And kids, making special space for storing their Eidi this year. No wonder why the grandeur of this festival draws everyone closer at home, no matter where they were for the rest of the … Continue reading Eid Festivities that Speak of it’s Grandeur

On A Voyage With The River

On my boat in parallel with the river, I was lost somewhere, uncertain with shiver! The feet were assigned, the luggage was destined, Yet being away from home, heavily fined. I looked around for the lass of mine, Like Eve was made from Adam’s spine, But soon realised Cupid was angry with me, Turning deaf ears to my heart’s succumbing plea. I murmured to her … Continue reading On A Voyage With The River

Longing for Belonging…

While the night painted into deeper and deeper shades of blue, her longing eyes were still looking for some belonging in the audacious blankness of the vast sky. Sitting under the labyrinth of those branches, in the company of the tree, that had grown along with her over the years, she had been expecting some magic to happen that night. She had heard in her childhood that the people who … Continue reading Longing for Belonging…

Notices at Night…

With warnings studded like gems in gravel, A few roads are haunted hell to travel; Deceptive destinations don’t have a measured distance, And walking with principles is a foolish persistence! Your close ones will snatch your optimism, Will criticise, seeking rainbow in the prism; Shunning the principles that govern the result, Will demotivate adding spicy spoiled insult! Night after night, I am sleepless and thoughtful, … Continue reading Notices at Night…

Myths Of The Mirror…

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, show me grim realities of them all?” Asked a twenty year old, in anticipation of a traditional reply. However the mirror had much more to convey, with total internal reflection bringing enlightenment. The mirror responded in a satire: The walls of the hospital had heard more prayers than the walls of the churches! Now I know, nobody remembers God in … Continue reading Myths Of The Mirror…

Impossible said “I’m Possible!”

One of the greatest happiness in the world is accomplishment of something, you thought you never had potential for! Having invested so much, when you have sacrifices your nights and overexploited your days, the joy of its completion is simply extraordinary. Well, this reminds me that the word ‘Impossible’ says, ‘I’m Possible”. And there are darlings (love redirects here)  in my life, who made me … Continue reading Impossible said “I’m Possible!”

Why Did You Finish Eating After Me?

I have two amazing juniors in my affectionate garden, who turn away from each other every now and then. Well, it’s true that fighting is birthright of juniors, but what to do when the subject of arguments is not broken pencils or toys? When it is not half-read comics or teasing? Well, it might sound strange that food feeds them for dispute. Be it the burgers at … Continue reading Why Did You Finish Eating After Me?

Happily Ever After?

Once upon a time in history it was never said, that if something loses it’s existence or changes it’s appearance, it never had any valuable experiences. Every fallen, dead leaf, once danced enthusiastically on a windy day, Every drenched, wrecked ship, once sailed high spirited on bay! Everything that attains an end, definitely had a beginning. Birth and death are two universal truths, and the journey between … Continue reading Happily Ever After?
