1. Life On the day when I was born, I was a bit crazy, cool and stubborn. Then I started to grow and kept on growing, Until the day came of my first school morning. I enjoyed my school and I’m still enjoying, Although, sometimes it is a bit boring. I had many friends, some left, some are there, And I wish them to be with me everywhere. Many people came to my life, Some like angels and some with a knife. Some helped me, some left me alone, Some were there for me and some were blown. Forgetting them isn’t easy, ‘cause they were such a big part of me, I fail to understand where they have gone…? Alas! Life is life and we have to move on. Destiny on its own does, Sometimes merrily, sometimes with a buzz. When will our beloveds leave, we don’t know, We just have to go with the flow. And this is actually what is life… It is a mystery in itself…!
2. Parents We have two angels in our life always, Who pray for us nights and days. First one is mother, who nurtures and cares, Second one is father who wipes our tears. They bus us whatever we like, A car, a laptop or even a bike. We forget our worries with our mother, We get relieved from stresses with our father. Father, Mother, Mother, Father They are our world. ‘cause they have sacrificed their life time For our one silly smile. Love them from your heart, Love them from your soul,
‘cause they have forgot to live their life And also to see dreams at night. Don’t hurt them, for Lord’s sake, They ,make us forget our pains and an ache. They have made our world magical, By being so wonderful. By Adeena Jaweed Mir - IX A Indeed; Parents are the best gift from the Creator… And keeping them Happy is the Best Deed ever…!

Kashmir IT IS KNOWN AS THE HEAVEN ON EARTH, BUT NOW IS A BATTLE FIELD IN WORLD. IT'S PEOPLE USED TO CARRY PHONES IN THEIR HANDS, BUT NOW ARE CARRYING STONES IN THEIR HANDS. IT'S PEOPLE WERE FAMOUS FOR THEIR TALENT , BUT NOW ARE FAMOUS FOR THEIR MARTYRDOM. ON EVERY STREETS THERE WERE CROWDS OF PEOPLE ON MARKETS, BUT NOW ON EVERY STREETS THERE ARE CROWDS OF PEOPLE ON FUNERALS. IT IS KNOWN AS THE HEAVEN ON EARTH, BUT NOW IS A BATTLEFIELD IN WORLD, IT'S NAME IS KASHMIR. By Tabin Kawoosa - IX A
