Sometimes he looked out of the window at the airplane on the runway or stared at the ceiling of the office where he was. There were three other men besides him in the room. They were wearing uniforms of three different colors. It was obvious that they belonged to different agencies. Awhile later the man in light blue uniform said to him; “if you admit that you are a Pakistani national and sign this paper that says that you are Pakistani; we’ll deport you to Pakistan with a request to the concerned department to treat you humanely”

Turning his face towards the man who asked him to sign the document, he looked at him for some moment and without saying a single word he looked out of the window and at the airplane. The man’s silence provoked the soldier in dark uniform to pull his hair and snarled; “While searching your clothes we found things that prove that you are a Pakistani. You traveled without visa and passport to Iraq and then to Syria. You worked in Syria for an NGO to serve the war stricken people. Both Syria and Iraq has confirmed that you are neither a born Syrian nor Iraqi or Arab. But you are a Pakistani”

The man looked at the man in uniform with any expression on his face and went back to look at the airplane on the runway. The third man fully clad in khaki uniform who was listening quietly lost his temper at last and howling at the man hitting the table said; “Go to hell man! We’re least bothered who you are or where you come from.“Our government doesn’t acknowledge you as an Iraqi or Syrian refugee; you are a Pakistani for sure. We will send you to Pakistan in the air plane you see there on the runway” he then looked at the two officers. Those two men took him to the Immigration Investigation office in hand cuffs then towards the airplane standing on Budapest airport. They handed the man over to the captain of the plane and came back to the same room.

While the plane was waiting to take off, the airhostess brought him a glass of water

The airhostess brought him a glass of water without his asking for it. She kindly said in English to him to drink water. He looked at her gratefully.  She understood his helplessness and heartrending story from his silence. His silence exposed his unaided vulnerability to her. So she assured him more gently that she’ll take care of all the way during this flight from Budapest to Islamabad.

After a while, the plane speedily took off

He was feeling worn out so he closed his eyes and rested his head against back of his seat.  He didn’t know his destination. His thoughts floated same like the plane in the sky. Memories ran on his mind screen one after the other.

Due to bad weather the plane getting imbalanced bound into an air pocket and within no time alleviated again. With the jerk he also emerged from the unfathomable ocean of thoughts. He looked out of the window but there was nothing except sheer darkness.

When the river put on the attire of silence

The thirsty covered their body with dryness

Was it course matted cloth or attire of paper

Whatever it was, we wore what we got ever

When starving got agonizing; sold my attire

To veil nakedness, I put on darkness as attire

In intolerable heat I detached myself from self

In cold became painful, I wore me around self

Bodies need no shrouds if die in earthquakes

Each body’s wrapped in debris in earthquakes

Bedil, while life’s attire was lively and vibrant

I wore my attire wrong side up and upturned
…………………………………………………….

BEDIL HAIDRI
dariyā ne kal jo chup kā libāda pahan liyā

pyāsoñ ne apne jism pe sahrā pahan liyā

vo TaaT kī qabā thī ki kāġhaz kā pairahan

jaisā bhī mil gayā hameñ vaisā pahan liyā

fāqoñ se tañg aa.e to poshāk bech dī

uryāñ hue to shab kā añdherā pahan liyā

garmī lagī to ḳhud se alag ho ke so ga.e

sardī lagī to ḳhud ko dobāra pahan liyā

bhauñchāl meñ kafan kī zarūrat nahīñ paḌī

har laash ne makān kā malba pahan liyā

‘be-dil’ libās-e-zīst baḌā dīda-zeb thā

aur ham ne is libās ko ulTā pahan liyā

Adhere as fragrant breath when meet

Engulf me like my aura if reside with me

If hold my heart; stay as thy own abode

Be there like my reflection in my vision

Be the first bloom of spring to blossom

Live like fresh and youthful flora forever

Stop as if never took a step ahead ever

If you walk, take to the air as gentle gale

If you laugh; laugh like an innocent child

If awake; brighten the darkness as a ray

Drink venom like sweet sherbet, Anwer

Make life eternity when you pass away

HOME

Until eternity this dust will remain gone astray

Will rest in the arms of night until immortality

Will continue to keep closed eyes, closed patiently

From dream to dream until headed for dreamland

The night cannot get away with darkness

Unless each star shines like an perfect moon

Needs to keep struggling with life consistently

Unless O’ Lord, Thou make this house my home

May the gloom put my house in the shade but

The heart should be liven up until the life ends

I’m ready to burn in the furnace of gloominess

Until the tears on my eye lashes turn to pearls

Keep me connected to the pen’s passion O’ Lord

Unless my skill shines like an exemplary skillfulness

Listen to the broken heart’s veiled sadness

I’m silent! Listen to the voice of my silence

Do listen to the sheen‘s rhythm in darkness!

A lamp of hope alone

When, builds a home in dark

Smiles, at its being there!

In the midst of hope and wishes;

Know what, it’s unaware of

The   wicked tricks of cruelty;

Who went beyond the darkness?

Who brought info of radiance?

A lamp of hope alone!

When fondles on my lap,

How deeply my heart aches;

Its bright twinkling eyes,

If couldn’t give vision, but

I promise to guide the way

To the dense forests’ border

Show footprints of those gone;

 A lamp of hope alone

That shimmers in my patio,

I feel drawn to it, lovingly

In its soft dim radiance

Town to town roamed traveler forgot way home

What’s yours what’s mine, forgot mine and thine;

Whence realized mine story is world’s legend

Gladly spent life, forgot grievance and moaning;

 A ray peeped through the darkness feeling shy

Remember the glance, forgot how the face was;

In fun-loving, pleasing, playfully meditatively

Color faded; heart finally forgot wound’s leak;

One glances, one moment of breaths’ string now

When a glance of spirit dies, hard to live a instant;

Who ever to notice, has alike norm in heart,

We remember all; however the era forgot us;

           Some one may say, who said it, what’s in bosom speak,

                                  Said MIRAJI, later regretted, and then forget to speak;
