Mouzu-e-Sukhan by Faiz Ahmead Faiz


गुल हुई जाती है अफ़सुर्दा सुलगती हुई शाम
धुल के निकलेगी अभी चश्म-ए-माहताब से रात
और मुश्ताक निगाहों की सुनी जाएगी
और उन हाथों से मस होंगे ये तरसे हुए हाथ

You've Got To Be Carefully Taught

"You've Got To Be Carefully Taught," (Lyrics from South Pacific.)
This is so true in our country. We are unfortunately tought to hate from the day we are born. Our mothers would tell us, beta/beti (son/daughter), marry any one but a muslim. Or how we are taught to ignore atrocities on lower casts but asked to stand up for the cast/community/religious honor... We are taught to hate woman by our religion, our customs, our socital bias, our overlooking for domestic voilance and rapes by relatives. All this we are carfuly taught.

Dawn's Highway

Indian, Indian what did you die for? Indian says, nothing at all.

Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind.

Me and my ?ah? mother and father ? and a grandmother and a grandfather ? were driving through the desert, at dawn, and a truck load of Indian workers had either hit another car, or just ? I don't know what happened ? but there were Indians scattered all over the highway, bleeding to death.
