Born in Srinagar (Indian occupied) Kashmir in the post world war years, I found myself taken to a new country Pakistan.The first ten years were happy and peaceful.1965 saw the beginnings of a war across the borders. (India and Pakistan )At a very young age I experienced blackouts, martyrs, war songs, defeat and compromise.In the school time years I had read about world history, world war I and other History books which inspired me greatly. As as a teenager becoming aware of the dangers, the hardships, the loyalties, the patriotism and the love of land in times of conflict I saw the effects from close quarters.
I have not seen my place of birth…and now I dream and write about my homeland, about life and humanity and peace and war…as wars are still going on…I hope to create awareness to make this world a better place-to make people think…those who can read…I thank them for doing so and I would like to say please share good thoughts as only the true and the good will survive….
I aim to make as many friends as possible and to spread peace and tolerance through my poetry. May Allah help and guide me. amen
