That one time I served the royal military (not literally- I'm wearing the army music band's uniform here while acting as a British soldier👸👨🚒) .
👨🚒This one is from last year when we organised a play for Mrs.COAS on the occasion of 23rd March on behalf of ladies club. .
👨🚒So the play started from the very plaintive story of Anarkali, evoking a keen sense of sadness in the audience. Then it showed the imprisonment of Bahadur shah zafar, the fall of mughal empire, with poignant songs from the Movie lal qilla (lagta nahi ha dil mera)- definitely one of my favorite poetry songs with a tinge of historical chronicles. .
👨🚒It then showed the struggles of our great leaders, the making of Pakistan and the atrocities that people endured at the time of partition- daughters & mothers raped, men slaughtered, children orphaned and women widowed. .
👨🚒It ended with the beautiful cultural performances, the happiness that came at the stake of all the suffering.
👨🚒I'd end it with a verse from Faiz' poetry - "Ye dagh dagh ujala, ye shab gazeeda seher, wo intizaar tha jiska, ye wo sahar to nahin."
We're the army of Jinnah, his hope
the poem of Iqbal,
The blood of Aziz bhatti,
The dauntless sons of Bin Qasim,
We need to rise, work hard and progress to turn that mottled dawn into a dawn of hope & power! It's not the leaders that make good nations, but good nations that make good leaders. If you need leaders like Umar RA, Ali RA then you need to be the riayah like Abu Hurairah Ra. .
