When you derive pleasure from my pain, don’t forget that you are creating a chain…
Shed not a single tear
for me when I am gone
I won’t be there to plead before
to forgive you for your wrong.
Mourn not in slightest repentance
for all that you have done
it wasn’t something accidental
or light enough just for fun.
You knew what you were doing
when you singed my soul that gleamed
by breaking bonds of humanity
with shameful deeds that teamed.
Deriving immense pleasure
from every bit of my pain
while setting standards for others
you forgot you’re creating a chain.
For God forbidden tomorrow
cruelty becomes a way of life
how then will you manage to protect
The flesh of your daughter and your wife.
If you really want to cry
cry for your offsprings days of glum
for what you sow so deliberately today
they will woefully reap for years to come.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
