Women Under The Veil

Beyond The Misconceptions!


“A society has no chance of success, if it does not educate its women”

– Khaled Hosseini (A Thousand Splendid Suns)

I’m not a student of politics who can give word perfect reiterations of human rights and state legislations. Nor am I a preacher, who can address every word of God sent down to man without blinking twice. I am merely a spectator in a mass of confusion, a writer aiming to put forward her feeble thoughts, a teenager who knows her rights.

H I J A B, a word that has caused immense misunderstandings over the recent decades, why are Muslim women obliged to wear it? How can any female be oppressed in such a way in the 21st century? When will they let go of such archaic laws and let women be free?

As global media is growing, we are becoming increasingly aware of issues in parts of…

Autumn’s Susurration

Crispy, yellow, tattered leaves

Crumbling softly underneath

Sombre, shabby, shoddy shoes.


Sidewalks, footpaths, orange-patched

Street lamps showering concrete steps

Crunching, crackling melodies

Of dried up, weary chestnut shoots.


Wings of South fluttering home,

Languished grasses wildly grown

Earth rejoining its progeny

Seeking haven in one’s roots;



From the nearing, biting wind,

Giving goosebumps on the skin,

When nascent in the crispy breeze

Dissolved in amber, auburn hues.


Once fierce, now golden rays

Pouring upon the lazy days

Of coffees and unsipped poetries;

When all would reborn and resurrect,

After Autumn’s hazel quietude…

An Expected Apology

There are a few things in life which we know would happen yet we don’t know what it would feel like when they actually happen. I could write more as an introduction to this short post but I believe its enough to say that this post itself is an example of what I wrote in the first two lines. I have read blog posts saying sorry to their readers for a long unplanned unsung absence. I have read them expressing fear of having lost their followers, their gratitude for not losing any and I have wondered of the time when I would do the same. I used to think if I would ever really stay away from writing for so long that I’d have to apologise for my absence. The thought always amused me…

But here I am writing this unasked for apology because yes what I feared or more appropriately expected least to happen, actually did. I have been away for so long, no writing and no checking of my feed, nothing. A blog death! But I am more than happy that a blog death has waay more chances of resurrection. This post marks one:D Honestly putting it, my blog is not of a regular nature, I only write out of inspiration but it’s true that inspiration for me doesn’t take this long to come into writing. I really am sorry for getting busy in all sorts of other stuff and not paying attention to this blog at all.

Grateful to the few who are still there to read this and more grateful to all my followers. Thanks for not unfollowing me ;D I am definitely excited and motivated to write again(:
