  1. 1. ‫الرحيم‬ ‫الرحمن‬ ‫هللا‬ ‫بسم‬ DMC CLASS OF 1985 DIGITAL MAGAZINE MAY 2014 SPECIAL ISSUE ‫مسيحا‬‫شاعر‬ ‫اور‬ An anthology of poetry By Graduates of Dow Medical College Edited by Dr. Saleem A Khanani (Dowite 1985) Dr. Sameena Khan (Dowite 1985) A DOW DIGITAL PUBLICATION
  2. 2. ‫الرحيم‬ ‫الرحمن‬ ‫هللا‬ ‫بسم‬ This is indeed a matter of pride for the editors of the DMC Class of 1985 digital magazine to present a unique publication, an anthology of poetry by the graduates of the Dow Medical College, Karachi Pakistan! Doctors are perceived as being serious and dry individuals whose scientific minds do not allow them to indulge much in finer arts. Nothing can be further from the truth as will be apparent from the selections of poetry by doctors in this small volume. Doctors are like any other normal human being, full of feelings, sensitivity and emotions. They enjoy looking at monuments of arts, watching spectacles of nature and listening to lilting melodies and reading good literature. The atmosphere at Dow was not just one of dead bodies, test tubes, rolling drums with carbon paper, petri dishes and lecture halls. There was a lot of culture, politics, sports, fun and arts. Poetry competitions, i.e., bait baazi, poetry recital by both invited poets of repute and budding physician-poets were routine. Some of the students made a name for themselves as poets during student life. And then there were ‘silent Miltons’ who kept the sober tenor of their way only to emerge later in life. This anthology combines both. We hope that the readers will enjoy reading these fine specimens of poetry. The poets are arranged according to alphabetical order of their last names.

  7. 7. SWEET SWEAT On the street of shagreen-like life, As jejune ingénue I shambled Free as a deer always had a hike (A deer with musk in hide) Then arose a fragrance, mutely With propensity, tried to solve the mystery, cutely The scent I tried to find in unprofane pang Pried and wondered the mind mustang But the fragrance neither arises from fecund pus Nor from the oozing blood crus Of deep wounds that rest in my soul For they are inodorous Though ephemeral, lingered on as a col Then inane penumbra shuttered When my ego muttered The odour, a psalm and sweet Is of my own own sweat And now I Free as a deer always have a hike (A deer with musk in hide) SOHAIL ANSARI

  11. 11. DOORS When one door closes Other opens Beckoning Beguiling Inviting Exciting Exotic Mystic There are many doors To open and close in our lives Some doors are slammed shut " no more of that " Some closed softly " it was good, but it is over" Some we keep ajar In hope In anticipation There are many doors in the heart Some open, relaxed Taking, absorbing, observing And when the excitement is piqued They are shut and others open To spread the warmth, spread the glow Closing a door, leaving behind means Opening new possibilities Departures entail arrivals somewhere else Syed Khalid Anwer

What does the thought think? What does the dream dream? How do the beats beat? What does the love love? THE THOUGHT POLICE Syed Khalid Anwer The thought police is after me Gathering my thinking Capturing my thoughts It can leave you distraught Puzzled, emotions fraught Ruthless in their thinking Inflexible in their thoughts Not concerned about the context Just the content of the thought I told them I am enjoying the process Joyous thinking and delirious thoughts one should have absolute freedom of playing with their thinking tinkering with their thoughts I even quoted Descartes ‘I am, therefore I Think’ it threw a spanner in their thinking and they scratched their heads, confused about all the thoughts they might leave me now and come after your thoughts better be succinct about your thinking clear about your thoughts I laughed, nice to side step them To muddle their thinking Befuddle their thoughts Trial and tribulations of my thinking Probing of your inner thoughts Who could have thought

  14. 14. T H I N K I N G ( thinking again) I am very close to my thinking To me it is very dear my thinking I have no fear of my thinking Even when spears are in my thinking sometimes it whispers my thinking And goes all pear shaped my thinking And I say oh dear dear, what am I thinking Then I revert back to some serene thinking And it then again endears my thinking There is a lot of flair in my thinking When it is in top gear my thinking I know you would be reading this And thinking.....

  30. 30. AISHA IDRIS DOW 1987 My name is Aisha Idris aka Aisha Shafiq Thahim After a year of House Job, life stopped making sense. So tentatively l joined Psychiatry as a PG, and thank God for making one good decision. I am a mother of three, two daughters and a son.I love reading indiscriminately, so that covers all! At any given time, I am reading usually three books at a time, according to the mood at that moment. My eldest daughter 20, doing BBA gives me a feeling of Deja vu! She is so much like what I was in Dow 80's, and definitely more street smart!! My second daughter is 17, and our family's literary gem. My son is 13 and our baby and the heir apparent to his father, being the only son of the eldest son something like British Monarchy! Other interests are soft music, ghazals, old Indian, Pakistani songs. Follow Pakistani Politics and Cricket for whatever it is worth! For work, l am the proprietor of a modest Psychiatric Unit. It suits me as I can make my own timings. My one unfulfilled fantasy is travelling around the world. Presently I am better described as a social recluse. ‫دے‬ ‫مہلت‬ ‫کتنی‬ ‫وقت‬ ‫جانے‬ ‫کون‬ ‫کچھ‬ ‫ہے‬ ‫قرض‬ ‫کا‬ ‫لمحوں‬ ‫ہوئے‬ ‫گزرے‬ ‫جائے‬ ‫پڑ‬ ‫نہ‬ ‫کم‬ ‫نقدی‬ ‫کی‬ ‫عمر‬ ‫کيلئے‬ ‫جوئے‬ ‫اس‬ ‫بےچيين‬ ‫ہے‬ ‫دل‬ ‫مگر‬ ‫ہيں‬ ‫ليتے‬ ‫سن‬ ‫بھی‬ ‫کی‬ ‫اس‬ ‫چلو‬ ‫تو‬ ‫ہے‬ ‫ٹھانا‬ ‫جو‬ ‫نے‬ ‫دل‬ ‫کرديں‬ ‫طرف‬ ‫ايک‬ ‫کو‬ ‫بچار‬ ‫سوچ‬ ‫پھر‬ ‫ليں‬ ‫مر‬ ‫ہی‬ ‫موت‬ ‫کی‬ ‫مرضی‬ ‫اپنی‬

  33. 33. A Love Ballad When you are heart broken, Agony killing your person, And are truly forsaken, And when you need someone, If solitude turns fearsome, Then remember the one, Whose love you'd spurned, The trust you thought cumbersome; Uttering haughtily sarcasm, Me being old-fashioned, Despair , angering you no end. Maybe when you'll think of me, And if you ever will need me, Just call out my name and see, My door never closed for you And never will be, believe me! My heart yours till eternity, For you there is always me.... The door to my home, The door to my heart, The door to happiness, The door of my being, All doors will remain open, For all times to come; Only for you I'm waiting; At the doorstep , sitting!!!! AISHA IDRIS
  34. 34. MUSINGS: Carefree childhood, Sunshine seasons, Children played, fooled More smiles and games, Skipping and dancing, Studying for exams, Only cause of brood; Life became more intricate, Few lines appearing on the slate! Entering bemusing Teens, Thirteen, Sixteen, Nineteen; Years spent at the Dow,exhilarating and how!!!!! But carefree years ending. Oh that one covert secret! So cursed yet so sacred! But life is now extracting, Punishing, then rewarding Losing loved ones hurting, Gaining little ones rewarding, A new universe evolving! So many lessons are taught, Intrigues, betrayals, deceit, Life intrepid, still Death Intrinsic! Making one wonder, marvel What is Divinity's purpose? Are there others in the Universe? Similar, yet so diverse! Am I the reason or consequence of Creation!!??
  35. 35. Air breathing moodily, Waters swarming noisily, Touch incites a Symphony, Fragrance of jasmine heavenly!! Thought wandering aimlessly, Dreams becoming visionary When heart is beating erratically, And love turns away blindly; To become an unwilling witness, Of error, ignorance and strife! When all things seem like nothing, Lord! Bear with my reasoning Why so much suffering? Is that the curse of living??? AISHA IDRIS
  36. 36. A Lovely bride The lonely girl was tired, The waiting game all over; She'll finally become a bride, An end to a bumpy ride! Arid land thirsty, all dried, Lusty showers will then hide, The passion that has died, Sacred emotions compromised. Feeling numb, going through motions The parents now aside, Don't leave me dad, she cried Ma don't cry, she smiled Hansi khusi kar do widah..... And then the car drived, Confused, shy, bewildered Hesitant, she entered, A new life thence discovered. Now novelty took over, Blushing beauty feels smoothered!! The boy she betrothed, Has turned into a stranger. At dawn the morning breeze whispered, Girl you have to become stronger, Or face a big disaster; A woman has taken over, The lonely, lovely bride. May God be always with her! And no one can replace her; Yesterday's fragile bride; Is now a strong Mother.
  37. 37. GIEZLA IQBAL DOW 1985 Giezla was not well known as a poetess while at Dow but her poetry shows maturity and sensibility that can only come with experience. She was kind enough to share some of her verses for this anthology. ‫لب‬ ‫تشنہ‬ ‫بھی‬ ‫سے‬ ‫سمندر‬ ‫ميں‬ ‫پلٹوں‬ ‫کيسے‬ ‫کو‬ ‫رکھے‬ ‫تشنگی‬ ِ ‫وقار‬‫ئ‬‫طرح‬ ‫ميری‬ ‫کيا‬ ‫کے‬ ‫پروانوں‬ ‫هے‬ ‫ساتھ‬ ‫بس‬ ‫تو‬ ‫رونا‬ ‫کا‬ ‫سب‬ ‫کو‬ ‫تو‬ ‫ديکھے‬ ‫کے‬ ‫جل‬‫ئ‬‫طرح‬ ‫کی‬ ‫شمع‬ ‫بھی‬ ‫اور‬ ‫اسکا‬ ‫جوش‬ ‫جب‬ ‫هوءے‬ ‫ابھرتے‬ ‫ديکھے‬ ‫سے‬ ‫دور‬ ‫کو‬ ‫ديکھے‬ ‫کا‬ ‫موجوں‬ ‫لوٹنا‬‫ئ‬‫طرح‬ ‫کی‬ ‫ساحل‬ ‫ممکن‬ ‫رفاقت‬ ‫کی‬ ‫بھر‬ ‫عمر‬ ‫تو‬ ‫بھی‬ ‫ميں‬ ‫دشمنی‬ ‫طرح‬ ‫کی‬ ‫غيروں‬ ‫کبھی‬ ‫الجھنا‬ ‫ميں‬ ‫دوستی‬ ‫ه‬ ‫پھياليا‬ ‫نور‬ ‫هی‬ ‫نور‬‫اپنے‬ ‫سمت‬ ‫هر‬ ‫ے‬ ‫م‬ ‫رکھنا‬ ‫بھی‬ ‫داغ‬ ‫ميں‬ ‫سينے‬‫ه‬ِ‫طرح‬ ‫کی‬ ‫مل‬ ‫کا‬
