  • Pakistan fought a 17-day war with India in 1965. In these times war is still going on.Being a witness as a college student, September is a month of memories and such thoughts.

    The 6th of September came again
    and brought memories of war
    blasts and fights in darkness so close
    courage prevailed as fears grew
    everyday a front opened, new-
    each day brought a fresh death
    young and tender with
    a soft breath cooled
    a formless form
    when nothing was gained
    from the destructive storm'

    thrown and blown and shown around;
    and all that was Holy stately and grand
    was in an instant brought to the ground;

    Memories remain of
    a love lost
    a shattered dream
    a silent scream
    And the War goes on….
    And bodies fall
    And so do the leaves
    And so do the trees
    And so many tears
    And September Calls …

    Who is being fooled …
    Who is being ruled
    Who is hiding and law abiding
    Who is lost and who is found;

    I wonder who is the victor
    And when will be the last round
