The Bawa In Chains

his body held captive
in iron chains , permanently
fused iron manacled immune
to the weight or pain
this way all his life he will
remain an ascetic a monk
completely sane a mystic
through this penance his
moksha attains .. the bawa
in chains travelling from shrine
to shrine from one urus to
the next ..follower of
ali his son hussain ..

a malang a mendicant
mind over matter heart
over brain...

Beti Achhe Din Anewale Hain

nanhe nane hathon se
chane bana .. tere bure
din badalnewale hain
tere nanhe hathon se
chatpata chana log
khanewale hain
tujhe kya padne ki
zaroorat ..teri zindagi
main yeh char chand
laganewale hain
girl child empowerment
ka yeh ek naya nara
 laganewale hain

In 1967, he was honoured with the Padma Shri award by the Government of India.[2] His singing career spanned about 35 years.

Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (A.S)

jis wqt mujhe mot ka aizaz mile tb.
Mere labon pe natiq-e-quran Ali ho.
Dozakh se bhala ku wo dre ga chishty
jis shakhs ka mehshar ma nigehban Ali ho..

Background of Imam Ali.

On the 13th of the month of Rajab, twenty-three years before the migration of the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) a child was born in the family of Abu Talib, the light of whom kindled the whole World. Kunaab Mecci narrates about his birth: "We and Abbas (Ibne Abdul Mutalib) were sitting together when suddenly we saw Fatima bint-e-Asad moving towards the Kaabah in the condition having delivery pain and saying "Oh God I have faith in you and the Prophet (i.e., Abraham) who by your command laid the foundation of this house. O God! I swear you by the same Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) and swear you by the child in my womb make this birth comfortable and easy for me."

This was the time when all of us saw with our own eyes that the wall of Kaabah broke apart and Fatima bint-e-Asad entered into the Kaabah. Then the wall again united.

We ran terrified and trembling to our houses to send our women into the Kaabah for the help …

Giving the Eunuch the Right To Vote Could not Save Him From Becoming the Sacrificial Goat ..

rehabilitation of this  gender is not part of society's  ethos ..drugged on the street
marginalized for androgynous pause
dying for a lost cause ..

to be or not to be what he was not ,
,..held captive in the wrong slot
a battle he fought..cursing his lot
on the soul of humanity treated
as a blot ..hooked to pot.. he lives
he dies every day .. the cosmic
misplaced plot..he rots ..a picture
yet  it was his soul i captured
when i accidentally took this shot

releasing it from human  bondage
from the anvil of hope when the iron
was hot..
