Love stories

Love stories that are recited even today of
Heer Ranjha
Jodha Akbhar
Soni Mahiwal
Razia Sultan
Laila Majnu and many more
Where women sat  on pedestal of love
Today has that element vanished?
Is it now only plain worship of deities
not even treated as humane or approachable
How can then love survive
And will such epic love stories be heard

Little hearts


Her little feet danced tinkering her silver anklets, 
her tiny palms clapped as she recited the same verse over again
the syllables of  hunger fell on ignorant ears 
as prose took the stomach to another lane.

Happy birthday Odette

Life breathes afresh as memories rewind
A person who I hold unto closest to my heart
nostaglic childhood moments bubble before me
as I watch the flashbacks trailing from the start.

She is my friend, my first friend at school
classes, books, tiffins we shared together
happy chatters that found a smile on faces,
the little steps we took each weather.

Her admirable nature is what makes her my favourite,
a close guardian to her friends,
times when I was confused, lonely or even happy,
she stood besides me, my sheer motivator beyond any vent.

At school, one competition I looked forward to
is singing, with a  marvel blessed voice she sang,
a symphony that allured everyone
the chorus rejoiced that perfectly rang.

She is one person who I really admire  then and even now,
a poise for life, a gentle being
Words shared between us may be few
but this chord of life itself beams.

Dear Odette, as you lead your life, live your dreams and enjoy every bliss
Bless you abundantly with good health and happiness, to God I pray,
Thanks for everything, keep smiling
Wishing you loads of good wishes, a very Happy Birthday!!!

Wings of Freedom



The gentle breeze flies alongside my wings
Higher near the clouds that stay glued
My feet dangle in midair
Swiftly rowing its way to the hues
I pass by that way, that gate leading to heaven
A unexplained energy resides at that place,
My twitter echoes admist the serene
It wobbles crazy in that space.

I fear to look down at the tiny dwelling underneath,
Once my abode, I cannot find myself go again that street.

You may call it arrogance or poster me as rude,
But I will not budge down soon.
Yeah,my soul nestles there as I see my home there,
But the merciless prey of my family will not be spared.

It is for their fun that my family and friends have borne the brunt,
Those beings who caged many or did hunt.

I would rather let my wings fly here above,
With my few loved ones who live with me
A few of us left though,
It is our world, life without greed.

In your Memory

In those smiles
That sweet voice
I never found pain
In that care
Where there was selflessly giving
I never saw the rain
But behind that light
Hid the grey shadow unknown
You beared it alone
Without any complain
Today I hide my eyes to see you in that state
That has been doing of fate
For I always loved to see your smiling gentle face
It is the memory I want to keep it that way forever in my place.
