    The winter and the falling snow witnessed
    The bloodshed, the cries of those devoured alive
    The beasts failed infront of those monsters wild

    The scars burned in the blanket of crystal ice
    The snow a red saree so wide
    The chants of "convert, run or die"
    Like some wide stretch of river in front and on the other a valley high

    The cries, the shouts, the screams
    Muffled under the wintry doom
    The fear, the terror, the panic
    The holocaust of kashmiri pandit

    The ignorance, the helplessness, the weak
    Freedom from the vulnerable conditions they seek

    Their voice silenced, caged never heard right
    All in vain their fight
    The escape seemed impossible, the dead might
    The living were savaged whole and alive

    The culprit roamed free, the innocent in prison
    Where had been at that time our constitution
    Freedom & secularism became mere fantasies
    The zenith passed in the practical authority

    "Justice delayed is justice denied"
    But here the justice was simply thought as a joke before it came right
    Now they scream of justice
    Which is given after being denied......

    P. S. Hey, I have written this just as my thoughts that came to me after watching the "Kashmir files".
    I didn't meant to offend anyone.
    No offense

    Though everyone has the right to
    freedom of opinion and expression,
    society always taunts us saying "this is
    not applicable to You".

    What's Her..?

    ..
    What's her favourite colour?
    What's her favourite food?
    What's her favourite hobby?
    What's her favourite place?
    What's her biggest pet peeve?
    What's her biggest regret?
    What's her ideal gift?
    What's her ideal life?
    What's her biggest fear?
    What's her biggest dream?
    What's her darkest thought?
    What's her best comfort?
    What's something I don't want to know?
    Yet I will keep mum.
    For I know this is not forever,
    Though my love will be.

    All Lives Matter

    We are divided by our races,
    And honestly I hate it.
    It feels like all the love in the world has faded.
    We can't see the hurt on each other's faces.
    Why should I love you less cause the color of your skin?
    Why would I put someone above me because of a darker or lighter pigment?
    All lives matter.
    Everyone's heart is beaten and battered.
    Yeah, we all goin through somethin,
    We all been shattered.
    We're all brothers and sisters through the blood of Christ.
    Whether you're black, white or blue,
    You got a lot a things you're going through.
    So instead of the separating and spreading of hate,
    Why don't we spread the love and find someone to save?
    The burning of buildings,
    The beating of children,
    The hurting of innocence,
    Man it's all ridiculous.
    The police brutality,
    Rioting like it's something you do righteously,
    The fighting so tirelessly.
    All lives matter, not just you or me.

    stop criticising past
    What gone is gone
    What has happened has already happened...
    You are Young, bright and strong
    You need to let go of memories that are more like scars to you

    झुके_शीश

    मत बजाओ डंका अब..अपने उस 'अनेकता में एकता का' तुम!
    शायद उस नारे मेंउतना अब 'दम' न होगा।
    लिखना-लिखाना,
    चीखना-चिल्लाना,
    सब ठीक है..लेकिन 'हकीकतों' की 'पुकार' पर,
    हर 'शीश' यहाँ 'झूका' होगा।

    "Who vs State"

    busy surviving
    we have lost the life
    the feelings
    and the awareness
    courage to raise voice
    against the power and atrocity
    the ill system is regressive
    killing progressive thoughts
    ruining the Institutions
    playing with sentiments
    as they are afraid
    that someday someone will
    point it out that King is naked
    same as in that old story
    and the illusion will be over
    the bubble will burst with impact
    and People will rise
    understanding their rights
    the state will put an obligation
    in the name of religion and Ideology
    suppressing free thoughts
    killing equality
    and incentives for blind believers
    who is one for himself
    who is exclusive
    filled with filthy thoughts
    they will get the reward of their loyalty
    the public hanging will be organized
    in the name of sedition and conspiracy
    free radicals will be hanged
    the crowd will go crazy
    and decades later
    when the truth will slap in their face
    they will erect a statue
    and put the name
    with remaining thoughts
    and will go to their homes
    to repeat the same cycle again,


    Jks.

    Muslim and proud! ������

    Niqab/Naqab - veil or face cover
    Niqabi/Naqabi- one who wears a veil over the face.
    Fatwa - religious ruling.

    There's a general notion about veiled women in this country. And that is they are dumb and easily led by male patriarchs of their homes. That they are oppressed and forced to cover themselves. While that may be true for 1% of the population (keyword: 'maybe'), most of us wear it to please Allaah SWT and then our own selves. Nobody else has any say.

    I know I can't change people's mindsets but I for one, can't stand to be called dumb and illiterate. So wrote this to clear the air. Thank you very much! ��

    Note: If your perception of me changed for the worse after reading this, you've a long way to go ��

    Behind the Veil

    I assure you, my Niqab does not render me dumb.
    And to such incredulous allusions, I refuse to succumb!

    They think me primitive, how pedantic of them!
    I keep my brains covered and my sentiments at hem.

    It is hard for them to believe that I'm a rational thinker,
    They fear I'd spout fatwas, or become a radical preacher.

    Their unwelcoming glares force me to think less of myself,
    In a crowd of prodigious behemoths, I feel like a tiny, tottering elf.

    Their dubious looks leave my confidence in tatters,
    I halt in my speeches, unsure, whether what I say really matters.

    Is it wrong to dream of regard, from this biased world?
    To let my thoughts run free and for my wings to unfold?

    While I'm an individual, a human being without any allegiance,
    I'm also a servant of my Lord, pledged to only His obedience.

    And deep beneath my layers of black, I love, live, breathe, see and think,
    I imagine, opine, act and hope to fuel a worthy cause with my pen and ink.

    Republic Day

    Hai is desh se hamara swabhimaan..
    Hai is desh pe hume abhimaan..
    Garv se kehte hai, hum hai hindustaani..
    Har ek tak yeh baat pahuchaane ki, humne thaani..
    Badh raha hai aage, ho raha hai desh ka vikas..
    Apni choti maansikta se, lo tum bhi ab avkaash..
    Rashtra sanyunkt hota hai ekta se..
    Mat lado aapas mein, kaam lo zara vivekta se..
    Badlaw nahi basta bebuniyaadi baato mein..
    Kuch swachhata laao tum bhi apne vichaaro mein..
    Kisiko dosh dena, hota hai bahut aasan..
    Hai himmat toh kardo desh k liye, khudko kurbaan..
    Shanti nahi milti mandir mein deviyon ko pujne se..
    Jara baat karke toh dekho, aurton se samman se..
    Naman us din ko jisne dilaayi hume angrezo se azaadi..
    Naman is din ko jisne dilaayi khulke bolne ki azaadi..
    Gantantra diwas ki hardik shubhkamnaaye..
    Aao milkar ise hum sab manaye..

    शीर्षक कुछ अटपटा सा लग रहा है न, पर आजकल की परिस्थितियों में बिल्कुल सटीक लगता है।
    क्योंकि देश में आजकल सिर्फ दो ही विचाधाराएँ देखने को मिल रही है...सत्ताधारी समर्थक या विरोधी।।
    स्वस्थ लोकतंत्र के लिए दोनों विचारधाराएं होना जरूरी है, पर जब एक विचारधारा दूसरे पर हावी होने लग जाये तो शायद खतरे की घण्टी लगती है।।
    लोकतंत्र की खासियत ही यही है कि यह जनता का जनता के लिए जनता द्वारा शासन है,
    और लोकतंत्र में किसी को वोट देना एक स्वतंत्र प्रक्रिया है, जनता किसको और क्यों वोट दे रही है ये उसका निजी मत है और ये उसके स्वविवेक पर आधारित है!!
    जो भी सत्ताधारी दल चुनावो से पहले की गई घोषणाओं को पूरा नही कर पाता या जनता की उम्मीदों पर खरा नही उतरता तो जनता उसको सत्ता बेदखल कर देती है और करती आई भी है चाहे वो कितना भी कद्दावर नेता क्यों न हो!!
    पर वर्तमान में परिदृश्य कुछ अलग सा प्रतीत होता है,
    अगर आप कुछ भक्त टाइप लोगो से अलग विचारधारा रखते है, आप मुद्दों और विकास के आधार पर वोट देने की वकालत करते है, या फिर आप धर्म या जाति की राजनीति का विरोध करते है, तो आपको देशद्रोही होने का तमगा मिल सकता है या आप खुद के समाज के लोगो की नज़रों में गिर सकते है और ये सब इसलिए क्योंकि आपकी और उनकी विचारधारा अलग अलग है!!
    एक मजबूत लोकतंत्र के लिए मजबूत पक्ष के साथ साथ मजबूत विपक्ष की भी आवश्यकता है जो जनता के मुद्दों को बुलंदी के साथ उठा सके, और सत्ता में पक्ष और विपक्ष में बैठना निरन्तर और स्वभाविक प्रक्रिया है
    पर जब तुच्छ मानसिकता वाले लोग जो बेदखल हुई दल के समर्थक है कोसना शुरू कर देते है, फब्तियां कसते है, और नफरत की राजनीति फैलाना शुरू कर देते हैं,
    उन लोगो को ये सब छोड़ के इस बात पर ध्यान देना चाहिए कि..आप क्यों हारे?? क्या कमी रह गयी?? और उन कमियों को कैसे दूर किया जाए??
    समाज को बांट कर नफरत की राजनीति करना बन्द कीजिये, राजनीति में फंसकर आपसी भाईचारे को बर्बाद नही करे,
    जिम्मेदार नागरिक बनकर स्वस्थ लोकतंत्र का हिस्सा बनें!!

    जय हिन्द।।

    Freedom

    Freedom to me is not my cage or the power of my wings.
    It is that I am so attached to my soul that if someone doesn't honour it.. I get impulsive.

    मैं तुम पर अपनी पसंद कैसे थोप सकता हूं ।।
    तुम पर अपनी पसंद थोपना ये गलत होगा ।।

    मगर अभिव्यक्ति की अपनी आजादी है ।।
    इसमें मेरे करने से भी क्या गलत होगा ।।

    When will I be free

    They wished to sail the world,
    Dance through their paths,
    Frame out their captures,
    Sing their voice atop,
    Climb their fears,

    Dive into their deep dreams,
    Fly across the vast blues,
    And so many more dreams
    Held tight throughout the years,
    In the fist closed tightly
    And the hearts which wept daily..

    So many dreams, so many hopes
    All still after ages stay behind the fences,
    Crying and begging loud,
    Asking the same always,
    When will I be free?
