When the stream of desires flows and mixes with the river of day dreaming;

When passion, love and emotions meet together and form an unusual bond;

When the strings of heart play a romantic song;

When echoes of music touch the soul;

When the eyes blink and imagine wonders;

When the fingers move and create fantasies;

When loneliness spreads over crowd; and

When love conquers;

There my personality starts with a usual outlook so that no body can predict what I am behind my name.

From Education sector to Journalism industry, it is a trodden journey. Music is something I can’t live without. The beats of drum, the notes of guitar, the melodious flute, the sounds of piano; I am in love with all. Mostly I prefer music in Urdu and some times Punjabi too as I love Sufi music. I know a bit of sketching and do it in my leisure. Sometimes I read. Up til now I like Elif Shafak, Mumtaz Mufti, Ashfaq Ahmed, Banu Qudsia, and Mushtaq Ahmed Yusfi. Amongst my favorite books are The Gaze, The Architect’s Apprentice, Talaash, Ali pur ka Eeli, Zavia, Raja Gidh, and Aab-e-Gum.

The picture is Still life oil pastel work which I sketched back in 2010.
