    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    Where lie the problems and the solutions?

    The educated and the enlightened who keep quiet while silently watching the predicaments like frightened Owls?

    Or the hungry leaders who keep prowling and looting the resources meant for the proles ?

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    On mental health issues and mental toughness

    All they care about are the mortal human bodies

    That will one day decay and get lost in the cosmos

    Neglecting the most important, the immortal human souls

    No one care about your mental health, they just feed you carbohydrates

    Not knowing there is big fire burning inside the minds of the big guys and girls

    You fought all the internal demons that are trying to bring you to your knees

    If one day you let your tears out, and cry ones, twice, or thrice before you continue the unending internal battles

    They say " Come on big guy/girl ! Don't embarrass yourself and the big guys/girls, only the weak minded cries

    They don't know : “People cry, not because they're weak. It's because they've been strong for too long", not sometimes but all the times

    So you suppresses your emotions away from them, because those emotions have no values in their eyes

    They have no idea that your emotions and your tears came from strength and from the warrior mentality that you posseses

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    Had we known any better

    We would have been greater

    And take care of our brothers and sisters more smarter

    But Mama Africa when I want to move out of town to explore greatness, your sons and daughters say " So you are neglecting your family? Otherwise, stay closer"

    "It's too dangerous outside, better safe in your own little town in that shelter"

    But in the shelter it's size is smaller , and it's raining and leaking, I am catching fever

    And no growth in comfort zone whatsoever

    " Don't go to those gardens,
    we were told by our ancestors their fruits taste bitter "

    Some rules are meant to be broken, so I explore the gardens, I became an explorer

    My God! I found out those bitter fruits taste better

    And other many fruits taste more sweeter

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    I wanted to marry, they said "Yeah but only in our little Town, no any place safer"

    I grew up in that little town, not knowing the greatness of people like Alexander

    The way of life, traditions and mentality of my town were all I ever knew, nothing newer

    Until He came to my rescue, and sent me further

    He say " Travel and see for yourself the nations and civilizations that were former "

    Because traveling widens your horizons and makes you a good observer

    Nothing much can you see if all your life you are an insider

    Get out and tell me what it's like to look at your town from perspective of an outsider

    "Is your judgment the same?", No my judgement is more objective, because now I am more of an observer

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    Would you forgive me for not knowing any better?

    I have this autistic sister

    Spending every penny of our earnings out of love for her to get better

    Taken to gazillion of times to traditional healer and Islamic Center

    Bombarding her with herbal remedies lacking medical trials and license whatsoever

    She has been said to be possessed by the evil spirit, Jin, so said the insider

    I began to believe what they said, until when I saw similar situation approached in different accurate ways by outsider

    The outsider said to me " all her activities, symptoms and signs are busy telling you ' Look I am not possessed but Autistic female, so I am your Autistic Sister"

    " That's why you are missing the prevention, diagnosis,and management of such cases, now what you gonna do that you know better?"

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    " Yes my son, now what would you do about your sister's situation? , Answer the damn question"

    I would study the case, and refer her to right medical institution

    And pay more attention in the society for early diagnosis, management of similar or entirely different cases with their prevention

    " Son, Is that all you learnt from the outsider, after all the given information?"

    Mama, the outsider built special schools for people struggling with mental disorders for special intervention

    They built homes for them, and say " Look beautiful come over here it's more safer in this accommodation"

    Protecting them from the society that always attack them due to it's ignorance of clear picture of their condition

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    " Ok now tell me what about your other brother who couldn't talk fluently like you, didn't you get inpatient waiting, thinking he was taking centuries, for him to express himself and his situation?"

    " Wanting him to think, act and speak like he has no limitation"

    " Tell me what the outsider said about his condition"

    Oh the outsider said " Your brother has what we call 'Apaxia' for decades" , everything has level, stop calling anything you don't understand 'evil spirit'. Mama, you see Apaxia and Autism I never heard about them where I grew up. What a tribulation

    The outsider further said : "Look, these beautiful humans, one has Autism, one has Apaxia, this is how to better their condition to avoid any further complication"

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    " Glad to hear that, but what about woman, her freedom and liberty in this society ?"

    " So many troubles she carries on her shoulders, what a tragedy"

    " For years she has been married, but no sons, and daughters of her own, she is not lucky"

    " The society put the blame on her saying she is infitile, that the husband should marry more women more fertile, that she shouldn't be shown any mercy"

    But the outsider found out that the problem of infertility is not only arising from the woman, man's sperm count in many of the cases is the one faulty

    Mama, I couldn't imagine the sadness and weight on your shoulder, hold on little more we are working to fix the predicament even though slowly. It's so bulky

    ( Oh Mama Africa! )

    " My beloved Amin, my faith is being restored, I am proud of you, now I can rest in peace knowing freedom, justice, liberty, mercy and equality would be served in this society"

    You want it?
    Or you need it?
    Make those decisions,
    Hold your emotions!

    If you want it with all your heart
    You'll surely get it with help of "kainaat"
    You must have heard ..
    These familiar words..
    'Kisi chij ko puri shiddat se chaho toh
    puri "kainaat" usse milane ki koshish krti he..'

    So have all the hopes..
    Don't loose the ropes..!
    And ..Be in the game...
    Either you win and take the fame..
    Or you may lose still there ain't any shame!

    Self obsessed (social) network

    A social network once asked me
    Why don't you write so that more & more people can like & share it, after all fame is the ultimate destination right??

    I said "Expression is more important to me than Impression"

    The Glam and Pressure.

    I still couldn't write
    I ought to do it.
    I dont want to,
    look stupid.

    The billboards shine,
    like splendid wine.
    I don't want to,
    look stupid.

    Writers and editors,
    magazines and books,
    I don't want to,
    look stupid.

    I'm an easy man.
    Lazy and pacing,
    both cross,
    to hit the fan.

    These Grown Up Things

    The years are a whirlwind away,
    And the lamp in the kitchen dulls everyday,
    Family didn't matter much when the days were young -Maybe they did
    But we took for granted,
    And like a dream we didn't notice that the house we built,
    Was falling apart,

    Somehow the lines on their faces are deeper,
    My folks aren't getting younger,
    And soon they'll need my weak young hands,
    To guide them to an aged bath,
    Why does the time tick and tock so fast,
    Like a sled in the open vast,

    Eyes need to focus,
    But something shakes my compass and my Ship loses course,
    Emotions pulse through my veins,
    I want to feel, love and pain,
    But this world wants the strong,
    And there is no time to test and be wrong,

    What do I really want?
    Admist this hunger for recognition, fame and protection?
    Would I prefer a pauper's loving arms,
    To the Cold one's riches?
    Why does my heart crave the flame that licks on my skin,
    As feelings cloud my pupils,

    Where do I hit the pause button,
    In this spinning wheel?
    These Grown Up Things,
    Run around my head.
    ~I'm not Ready yet~

    The limelight is for stars People say ,
    but its vain,
    Stars don't shine bright without darkness,
    The limelight is just the void that drains,
    The nicheness,The emotions,the moments and everything real,
    I don't know if limelight makes us more important,
    Or just it's one of the fragile good feels,
    It may seem a fancy term ,
    But once you get time for the real life,
    And turn your life to the mirror ,
    You may feel what the limelight does to your life,your privacy,the real you,
    It's when you'll see the mirror and You'll realise
    Its murdeR!murdeR!murdeR!

    Why the hell she cannot trust her own child
    Does she feel is it ok to blame her for everything that happens or she started hating her ?

    Don't be hard on yourself

    You don't have to be extreme.
    Just consistent.

    Fame and beauty are blind to each other.

    Hate that beauty which try to seduce.

    Naught Reaching

    Great flames

    Tongues of fire

    Whisper my name

    Burning desires

    One in the same:

    To get high

    And drown in fame...

    Reaching up

    The stars

    Are not enough

    While my arms

    Reap all your love

    My heart is scarred

    And not so tough...

    Laying silent

    Giving up

    In this quiet

    So disquieting

    There's no love

    Can't see stars so

    Enjoy silence.

    Glory Fades

    We were all daffodils and hot chocolate hugs
    Heart-shaped rocks and matching coffee mugs
    We said what we had was enough,
    Not to chase people's opinions of us
    But here you are, laughing in the spotlight
    People's words bringing your pride to a height
    There's no room for me in the crowd,
    No time for us even after you've smiled and bowed
    I'll see you when the glory fades.
    My love, your love, our bright-white potential
    I see your surrounded stage amd feel inessential
    Are you happy with this mistress,
    This distraction from life distress?
    It's not real, a shadow realm of lies,
    Because they don't know the you who picked flowers off roadsides
    Silly boy who grew up when someone saw his talent
    I want to love you, want to leave you,
    Need to find a balance
    I'll see you when the glory fades.

    Fame versus Tranquillity

    Here I am in a hollow space
    Change in perception
    no more race

    Reminiscing at the famous days
    When my actions are subject
    of critic rays

    The multidirectional spotlights
    illuminating the inscrutable
    in their own right

    In the translucent glass of fame
    weakness hidden deep
    emerges to shame

    While loud cheers rarely impress
    As there is much more
    to express

    But the days in the past
    are not as good as the present
    which saves the best part for the last

    I can now hear the song
    by the band of birds and crickets
    singing polyrhythmic tunes for so long

    As I appreciate
    The amity of my beloved
    who loves me and not those who hate.

    Be famous in your own private world where very few people knows you, that's the new 2.0 because publicly famous are almost everyone in today's day and age.

    I think God wanted the world to experience what love feels like, so He sent mother

    My God! Never have I ever seen anyone kinder

    Anyone softer? Anyone stronger? Anyone smarter?

    No! she is simply the master ever

    Difficulties over difficulties, she never retreat nor surrender

    She says "my child no thunder will stop me from giving you shelter"

    "Nothing can stop me from protecting you my dear"

    "From the harsh world come hell or high water"

    One night I heard as if someone was crying only the voice wasn't louder

    I said mama: "were you crying? Tell me who caused it I am ready to commit murder

    She laughed and said: "Your mama is so talented she could make different voices it wasn't real crying my dear"

    " I was testing my talent, now let's have laughter "

    So we laughed at all the night's sorrow

    Until the sun rises she said "Now it's another day yesterday we called it tomorrow

    "Listen carefully my child we all have limited tomorrow"

    "When you wake up that day and mama not there, promise me not to be in sorrow"

    But mama how possible? And can they love me the same?

    Would they help hide my shame?

    Even if I become bigger, without you what use is the fame?

    Who would make magic and provide food with little or no money, then offer me the bigger portion on the table?

    Who would go hungry simply by giving me the only food available?

    Only you give me even your share, then say it tastes in your tongue terrible

    But mama in my tongue it is palatable

    "My child I will be watching over, and you have my blessing, grow up to be a good child and become honorable"

    "There is nothing noble in being horrible"

    "I will be waiting for your last tomorrow when God would welcome you as His noble"

    Contrary To You

    I don't write for any fame,
    But I write for the love of it.
    I want to learn many things,
    Writing is a way of practice.
    I am striving to be a polyglot,
    But Sänskřŧ is my ultimate goal.
    There are multiple languages,
    Yes, situationally in my novels too.

    Rich enough to buy the world
    The money bags weigh tons.
    But is it enough for you on the run.
    For money can bring a man to shame.
    Taking him farther from fame.
    Suddenly a debt is bigger than your home.
    Best to leave your lust alone.
