Allah Ho Akbar a Shia's Cry

Allah Ho Akbar a Shia's Cry, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Usurped were his fathers right
Ali the Lion of Allah
Superman of Islam in every fight
Najazhul Balagha Peak of Eloquence
Height of Height
Hussain his Son with his head
Decapitated

Muslims hate Muslims
Puritanical paroxysms

Hussainiyat
A Shias Honor
A Shias Pride
Enemies of Shiasm
Could not
Misguide ..
The Good the Bad the Ugly
A split open wide
It was to save Islam from
Its own enemies
That Hussain lived
Yazidiyat died

The Unsung Hero Of Our Life .. For All Time Mumbai Postman

The Unsung Hero Of Our Life .. For All Time Mumbai Postman, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
he never grumbles
or complain unlike
others during diwali
he does not threaten
to go on a strike
for fat bonus or gain
he is there at your
doorstep come
shine or rain,..
soon with the
advent of
email digital era
he too will disappear
like the good
old telegram
the red letter box..
memories down
the drain...my
tribute to the
humility of the
Indian postman
death of a service
