Apart from national security and international politics, when it comes to arts and creativity like songs, gazals and poems, I have always been fascinated by writer and singers of Pakistan. Singers like Abeeda Parveen, Farida Khanum, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Nayyara Noor and many writers like Muhammad Iqbal, Qateel Shifai, “Faiz”, Ahmed Faraz have done magnificent work in their field, and gave us a treasure to live with. To cherish human emotions with their words and soulful voices.
Today, while listening Pakistani songs on youtube, I got suggestion of heart rendering poem which was about one of the deadliest attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, Pakistan two years back. It was an unfortunate day for 132 innocent children of Army Public Schools and also for entire human race.
Those innocent children, When they had waved their hands saying “good bye” to their mothers, whose mothers would have thought that it were last glimpses of their children’s lively faces? Who would have thought that steps their children taking towards school would be one-way journey? Who would have thought that the school dresses they were wearing will be torn apart with bloodshed on it? It is even unbearable to think about such a brutal act. But some coward, stone hearten terrorists made this fatal thoughts reality.
On this incident someone has written a woeful poem, which was recited on Pakistani news channel name Ary News.
माँ काश मैं आज स्कूल ना जाता,
शायद तुम्हे फिर से देख पाता
तेरी आवाज़ सुनने को कान तरस रहे है
देखोना माँ बारूदों के गोले बरस रहे है
सारे बच्चे अपनी अपनी माँ को पुकार रहे है
माँ ये लोग हमें क्यों मार रहे है
टिफिनमें दी तुम्हारी रोटी भी नहीं खाई है
माँ आज गोलियोंने हमारी भूख मिटाई है
पापासे कहना अब मुझे स्कुल लेने ना आये
देख नहीं पाऊंगा उन्हें मेरा जनाजा उठाये
मेरे जानेसे अपना हौसला मत खोना
माँ मुझसे बिछड़ कर तुम मत रोना
मेरे खिलोने, मेरी किताबे, मेरा बस्ता,
जानता हु तेरी आंखे देखती रहेगी रोज़ मेरा रास्ता
भैयासे कहना उसका साथी रूठ गया है,
बचपनका हमारा साथ छूट गया है
अप्पीसे कहना मेरे लिए आंसू ना बहाये
रोज़ मेरी तस्वीर को छोटा सा फूल चढ़ाये
तेरी यादोमें, ख्वाबोमें, झिक्रमें, रह जाऊँगा,
माँ में अब कभी वापस नहीं आऊँगा।
माँ में अब कभी वापस नहीं आऊँगा।
It would have been impossible to weight off their heart who have lost their loved ones in this incident. It is very cheap words on such woe, but still I would pray for their soul, May they rest in peace.
- It would be bias to classify creativity and arts with specific nation. I have mentioned those names as a remark of Pakistan’s wide contribution in Gazals and Singing.
- Today, while I was writing this post, a friend of mine informed me about recent terror attack on Indian Army battalion administrative office, Uri-Jammu and Kashmir in which 17 Indian Army Jawaan were martyred. It is our poor luck that we have to face such atrocities. Every such terror attack anywhere in this world brings scar on human race. May those 17 martyr who lived for nation and gave their life protecting us rest in peace.
- The weapons recovered from terrorists have Pakistani marking as per officials.
Pakistan has became terror heaven since last decade. They must stop their double standards on terrorism, and stop feeding them.)
