Interesting and thought-provoking.
Wishing you great success!
Are books your favorite thing? Do you absolutely adore bookshops? Is hanging out with literary people discussing their work your favorite way to spend your evenings? If you answered yes to all these questions then I can bet you rushed eagerly to the Book Launch and Reading Session by Beyond Sanity Publishing on the 9th of May, 2016, at London Book Company, Kohsar Market.
The turnout at this event was delightful. London Book Company was filled to the brim and people who came a bit later faced difficulty in finding a place to sit. The ambiance was perfect for all bookworms and lovers of literature – bookshelves on either side, dimmed lights and glittering stars amid a darkening evening sky outside.
The CEO of Beyond Sanity Publishing, Irum Zahra, came up with this event to ensure that the love of reading remains alive and thriving in Pakistan. Those who…

Staring on my easel
I gently stroked on the canvas,
from my very soul
the colour of hope
it lack vibrancy, carries only dimness
so much hopelessness!
afraid it might fade away in fullness
I approached for the colour of faith,
It was there with all its radiance
spreading smoothly vital on canvas
further adding the colours of agony and pain
appearing vital but vain
there was a desperate want of life!
I approached for the colour of life
oh! I was running short of it !
despite of my wit
I am so short of it!
there is absolute nothingness
so much lifelessness
Despite of such nothingness and lifelessness
I compassionately looked,
looked on to my incomplete painting of love!
here it gives me the inkling what I have been to you!
where You were looking onto me
You claim that You…

Brilliant by a wonderful friend and emerging author.
To escape all harshness around,
I stepped into the valley of dreams.
Where there lie all sorts of dreams,
Waiting to be dreamed.
There at the corner of the valley
Flows a stream of Lethe.
In order to dream well
one should loose all remembrance
I sipped the water of forgetfulness,
And was lost in the captivating valley.
Where there were sweet dreams
Of bed of roses,
Pixies with pointed noses.
Of lilies,chrysanthemum and hyacinths,
All in fascinating labyrinths.
Of rainy nights,
Of gallant knights,
Of far away lands
Of valleys and islands
Of sweet love song,
Of Keat’s Nightingale’s song,
that I always long .
And of kingdom of heart,
where every end is a fresh start.
Of a die-heart lover
The one that can shower
I am an aging soul
My dreaming days are over!

Flowing free like the river Nile,
Let the silence overflow.
The world’s a beast of a burden,
Lay down the weight of compromise.
Ascend the ladder of heroism one time,
Disregard your reprimand for the breach of rules,
Venerate the Self impenetrable strength
With new found wings of liberty,
Abolish the cloak of anonymity.

Beautiful dearest bestie! xoxo
You are sickened by the weakness
Of men plagued with fear
And if the world persuades you to comply
Turn off your mind, relax
and let it wither.
Dark secrets carried deep inside like
a wisp of smoke spiral down the spine.
On the outside, it doesn’t show.
Glamoured in pretentious smiles,
Living in a matrix,
Superficial love renders itself hollow
Hissing aloud in the
shrouding darkness of ignorance.
Price of walking alone thus,
Forever lacks the creme de la creme of social refinement,
Upon refusal to adjust by anchoring one’s secrets deep,
for the sake of fostering a convivial atmosphere.

Q. First of all tell us about your educational background.
A. I have completed my MS. in Banking and Finance from UMT Lahore. Being a finance student, literature always lingered in my thoughts. I’d always wanted to do something in linguistics or literature but couldn’t pursue my education into these departments. I always wanted to be a writer; whether it was about writing fan fictions…

Beautifully written by my dearest bestie. A wonderful human being. xoxo
Abandoned on the shores of life,
Life bears no forewarning.
Swayed in the flames of love lost,
The heart is a desert parched for rain.
Forgotten time and again.
To break your own heart along the way and
Witness solitary tears trickle down the cheek.
Through years of repent and sorrow,
Stuck in purgatory,
Unable to breathe between two worlds.
Where art thou?
My Saviour, I turn to thee.
Protect me in the palm of your hands,
Gift this forlorn heart the shade it yearns
sheltered under your wings.
As I lay my head to rest,
Let my heart set sail,
Toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
Hear the beat of my drum,
Not having to return to this world of make-believe fairy tales
Run at the mercy of the myriad puppeteers,
House my soul once again in the endless oceans of your unwavering mercy,
