A pair of Afghan Mujaheddin fighters - father and son - armed with antiquated weapons that they use to fight the Soviet interlopers. The Martini-Henry rifle carried by the boy is possibly more than 100 years old.
Happy birthday my dear from the entire family of this Ef .. may you live for the longest years and may be even more happier within .. love from us all ..Aditi
Mother’s never come with an expiry date .. they live forever .. in peace and in concern .. ironic that on Mother’s day we talk of such .. we talk so because a Mother passed on .. a friend lost his .. and an entire generation drifted away .. gone to the heavens and gone in silence and calm ..
It is Mother’s day on the 8th and its 1 year of Piku and 24 years of Khuda Gawah .. and one cannot but wonder at the string of coincidences and ironies that unfold ..
A friend loses his Mother, on a day when a year passes of a film when the Father daughter relationship almost resembles that of Mother and her sibling .. when an Afghan Father faces the dilemma of a daughter that is a replica of his wife ..
You shall NEVER be able to detract the woman, side step her, ignore and push her to the back .. ever ! Woman is what gives us life, gives us reason to live through, brings and introduces us to the world and blesses us even as we fault or disobey or ignore what we respect as the one that gave birth to us ..
She, the woman, is 50% of our strength our existence our presence .. and they need respect and position and paralleled continuance … they guarantee the future and the present … they are the stronger not the weaker being .. they have something that is unfathomable, and than the Lord for that .. may it ever remain so ..
