‘Just as man could view his appearance in a mirror, he could examine his essence within his own thoughts.
Just as a person could view his external self in a mirror, he should be able to observe the interior of his mind in his thoughts…[through writing].’
~ Orhan Pamuk’s ‘The White Castle’.
I pour my passion as the ink in my pen.
I think, I write, I argue, therefore I am.
I find inspiration in Jinnah, Iqbal, Edhi, Sir Zafurullah Khan, Meena Keshwar Kamal, Hoda Sharawi and in the common masses of Pakistan, whose laborious hands have kept it alive since its birth.
Kashmiri by roots, Punjabi by birth – Pakistani by soul and heart.
A fervent writer, reader, observer and an ordinary student of life who wishes to better things during this stay on the halted caravan of the temporary harbor, called the world.
