Wo Jo Hum Mein Tum Mein Qaraar Tha

Dreams. Bad dreams aren't good for the soul. It's like feeding your mind the worst of your imagination. Of all the things that one could think of, to think of being stranded in a land you don't recognize and no familiar faces- that's the dream I fear the most. Because reality isn't very different a...

Piya Tora Kaisa Abhimaan?

I wish I could write something impressive. It's been a while since I wrote. Nearly a year. Over three hundred such days have passed that I don't remember my hands trembling, furiously typing in words on my Keep and categorising them under 'Khayaal'. But no more. I wonder sometimes if we could also just do this act... Continue Reading →

Taraana-e-Pakistan (Pak Sarzamin)

Let's open our hearts, shall we? Celebrating 70 years of Independence on both sides. We're so close, so similar. We are basically the same people. We speak the same language, we wear the same clothes, we celebrate the same festivals, we share the love for music and the arts. What's the difference? Really? Music broke... Continue Reading →

Yariyaan

As the new year unfolds, I couldn't help but look back on how much the relationships I've had over the last few years have shaped who I am. People have walked into my life, without a warning, and changed it. For better, mostly. I've learnt so much in 2016. Twenty sixteen. The year of many,... Continue Reading →

Sanu Ik Pal Chaen Na Aave

I know nothing. Nothing.  Imagine being on a boat. A boat that has no oars. A boat riding on waters that are still. Imagine a sun. A sun that lights up everything it touches. In a sky that's spotless. Imagine a body on that boat, under that sun. Imagine that it has no ties to anything... Continue Reading →
