Mountains Of Hope

This is a poem I wrote for Aania, daughter of my friend Asif Siddiqui. Hope you like it. 

Innocent eyes
Stare at the world
Hoping for Change,
To obliterate boundaries,
Dreaming of
Rising above
The name
And the religion
That tags along,
Asking questions
Not from others
But herself,
My identity
Is by my Work
And nothing else..
Don't judge me,
Look at the footprints
In the snow
I am going to climb
Mountains of Hope
Come along
Join me,
Come with me....

My Tweet Review Of #MaryKom

1) There's something bout that's irresistible 4 it's a true story told rivetingly with an Extraordinary performance by Priyanka Chopra

2) Priyanka beats all her performances by a long distns.She spills blood,punches out negativity..yes u'll surely fall in love wid her

3) The fearless fighter,the rebellious-yet-loving daughter,d sensitive mom,resisting-the-demons of losing boxing,PC is Stellar in all

4) Priyanka Chopra deserves every award possible.If Oscar is the yardstick 4 the best,thn she surely deserves a nomination

5) Screenplay by Saiwyn Qadras is the backbone of the non linear trajectory n the surprises keep u interested...Always!

6) Sunil Thapa as coach is inspiring,Darshan as Mary's husband is wonderfully understated...Lots of unknown North East faces r superb

7) Music layers the story beautifully. and then finally r exceptional

8) If inspiring,real,hard hitting,motivating cinema gives u a kick,thn don't miss 4 anything.U'd also witness Women-Power, Literally!

9) I refrain from the star system in reviews but I'd give ***** stars to for it's one of the best films I've seen in a long time...
