Aik Azaad Nazam, Ravi Ke Naam…

dsc_0002-2

If you are wondering who this guy in the picture is.. thats my husband, Mohsin… but I call him Mr. Incredible (why he got his nick name, find out here..).He’s a thinker, a poet, a musician and a very patriotic Pakistani.

On this September 6, while the Pakistani nation was celebrating our War heroes and the victory in the War of 1965, he was lost in his thoughts of what actually comes out of war…. and hence this azaad nazam.

Let me give you a little background on who “Ravi” is… So, during one of the travels, Mohsin came across a taxi driver, who was an Ex-Indian Air Force Pilot, who fought in the War of 1971.This nazam is based on Ravi’s true story.

This is a letter to Ravi , beautifully written by Mohsin… screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-8-24-00-pmscreen-shot-2016-09-07-at-8-24-23-pm


Here it is  -the Roman Urdu version, for people who CAN understand urdu but can’t read the urdu script.

Nothing good comes out of war, EVER!

P.S. I apologize to my readers, who don’t understand Urdu, but the poetry will get lost in translation…

    Loved the poem.. even though I was not even born when this happened but it felt I saw a whole video through this poem. I wonder how ppl have gone through this. Hats off mohsin bhai. This is really beautiful.

    Wow. I attempted reading the pure urdu version but struggled after a while. Read it in English then again in Urdu. It’s so profound! War is always ugly, so true. Well written and love the shot you be captured of your one and only 🙂
