No Inhibition

This is such a warm support from all of you…COLLAB-A-THON is gaining so much love….

Collaboration Welcome

ahmedridayumn@gmail.com

So…I have recently collaborated with jiyaraobreeze @ J Raouf . Do checkout her blog.She is like a breath of fresh air and is one of the most optimistic and encouraging person I have ever encountered in my life.
The thoughts below are expressed by both Jiya and Rida.



       Concern on Mental Health and                Taboos relating with it.



I discussed with Jiya that how mental health issues are not discussed socially and in many countries…it is perceived that only a mentally retarded person goes to a psychologist.

I was planning to do something with Jiya related to mental health issues especially regarding teenagers..

It is not a shame if you are suffering from depression or mental health issues…we all have gone through it…You..Me..Everyone!
It is high time that people give attention to the health if our minds.

In India, every hour, a student does suicide because of pressure of studies or poor academic result.

          WE NEED TO STOP THIS!

Jiya Speaks

“This is a great idea and of course, I also think that there are other bullying issues that are hidden for example covert racism. I was thinking we could bring in people from the BAME community (minority ethnic groups) and they could share their feelings about bullying too! 

I’ve been through bullying at school, been through racism and also “othering.” In high school, I experienced a lot of bad friends and they would stir up rumours and I’d end up having a physical fight with someone. There were teachers that just walked on by and nothing was done about it. The problem is that there aren’t enough ethnic teachers who understand.



It’s more of an issue in a school where most teachers are not from minority backgrounds. If I were to raise awareness about anything it would be that there needs to be more done to include kids from ethnic backgrounds. But I’m glad to see that you’re bringing awareness about bullying. 
We also need to think about the counselors and whether they get what their students are going through” 🙂

Due to stigma, people are often reluctant to seek help at their counseling center.
When we people will openly express their emotions, other teenagers and folks are likelier to do the same. This decreases stigma and makes  others in need more likely to seek counseling.

Come forward and say…

We,The Conquerors Of Misery

It is my latest piece to be published in the school newsletter. Check it out❤

So,let’s face it.How many of us have said,just 5 minutes more”!

How much these ‘5 minutes” last,say an hour,a day or ages! I recently stumbled upon the news of the British International Development Minister, Michael Bates,who resigned.Well,what is unique is that he was just a couple of minutes late to his office! Anyone of us who ever arrived lare , an apology will usually suffice but for him, it was a dishonor. 

What’s more astonishing in Japan is that all workplaces and school are very strict about the arrival time.It’s such a brouhaha that if a train is delayed there, a train delay certificate is issued that a passenger wasn’t late due to his fault as the population relies on public transport.

These cases strike my head where all of us have been a victim of time mismanagement. It takes a strong willed mind to understand the importance of time, which no person or writing can make you feel.

Yes! You are the conqueror of misery!!!

The video below is where Michael Bates resigns👇👇👇👇👇👇

Raise Your Hands,Potterheads!

Collaborations Welcome..Contact-

ahmedridayumn@gmail.com

Well..everyone loves Harry Potter..but those who don’t know Harry Potter..well..have a clue…get to delve in it the next moment!

 It embarks on a journey of a boy named Harry Potter who lives with his uncle and aunt,because he was an orphan whose parents were murdered by ‘you-know-who’.

  They ill-treat him because he is a wizard and they are muggles(non-wizard).He only gets to know about his identity when he turns into a 10 year old and he goes to the school of Wizadry,Hogwarts and embarks on adventures and meets his best friends,Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley and nevertheless his nemesis Draco Malfoy.

But his biggest enemy was the murderer of his parents-Voldemort.
It is truly a beautiful portrayal of an amazing bond between the characters who have been in the series starting from their childhood till they became adults.

I stumbled upon some funny detention letter for Sirius Black☝☝

I have shared some beautiful shots from Google +.

It is a series which will be etched on our hearts forever.It is a perfect blend for love,magic,wizardry,friendship, and trust and twists.

Relationships have been given much importance. Whether it is an equation between teacher-student(harry with dumbledore,minerva mconagull,professor Lupin etc)..the best friends,and his guardian Hagrid.

I truly loved Professor Snape’s part.He was shown as an antagonist from the starting..but in the end he turned out to be a wellwisher for Harry..

I’ll always remember Harry Potter because I’ve grown with it.

Do share your stories and experiences, Potterheads..Cheers to all the potterheads…#WeloveHarryPotter❤❤

Murder Of The Locks(A Suggested Post)

Hiya Folks!!

My lovely Merakians❤❤

So..I had a suggestion from a dear friend..Anirudh bro.. where he suggested that I use my style of poetry to portray social issues..I was so moved that I thought that it should be implemented ASAP.

Such Motivating Words😊

This poem is very special as it is dedicated to the bravest and most strongest of the women who didn’t break even in the worst experiences of their lives…

A BIG SALUTE TO ALL THE REAL LIFE WARRIORS!

She had the most luscious locks

Which she was always proud of

Had  her hair

looked after 

By her mother

With sheer pride

Till she became the bonny bride


Alas! The kingdom of my fantasies

My world, my dreams , my king who’s 

most precious is his queen

But what was this fate…this ill destiny

Wrapped in this painful ecstasy


His myriad emotions..

 the strangest  mélange of feelings

Her wrists clenched by the fists of devil

Did she deserve to be beaten like a slave

Caged like the injured bird

Stoned by those marring beatings.


Those locks..those beautiful locks

Went to the parlour one day

Dangling till her swollen nape

“Cut them short”,she said 

Wearing a hooded cape

“But,that’s the finest hair I’ve seen”

“Why you want to cut then and be mean!”

Shrieked the barber.


Cut it shorter,she resorted

“Keep it till your pretty ears”

the barber exclaimed

A pixie is in vogue

But shortening your hair

Was still an idea,lame.


“Make them shorter”,she cried

“Oh..no!! Don’t make me a perpetrator”

“And make me a sinner”

“By murdering those locks”

Sighed the barber ,shocked.


“Make my hair that short

That it doesn’t be that long enough

Enough to come in the hands

Of the perpetrator

To Get Hold of my hair

And make my locks

The weapon to make my soul bare.”


It is not just the end to the violence

Her voice is now not unheard

The tears in her eyes

Is not the weakness

But the anger within her

Which has made her blood boil

And brought the vapours in her eyes.


Her locks are now cut

She has begin her journey 

To write her own destiny

Without any societal ifs and buts.


#Respect Them

#Love Them 

#But Don’t Ever Take Them Weak Because She’s a Diamond That Can’t Be Broken by Anyone.

    Rest In Alone

    ahmedridayumn@gmail.com

    Came across a dead twig

    Separated from its roots

    Death must have prevailed in it

    Without any greater energy than in its roots

    Poor twig,cut from its supreme power

    Making its soul shriek,with the moan

    It is gonna rest in alone


    Will anybody remember its groan,

    The pain,the suffering, it suffered

    All its painful cries,when it was severed

    Wandering in the air

    Like a broken and battered soul.

    The heart was filled with mystery

    Hidden was the rarest treasury

    The beats knocked like a bell

    But who knew there was hell

    The hands reached to grab

    The essence of life

    Love was what all she seeked

    No one knew the terrible seizure

    Of the spirit of the lovely soul

    Hidden in the eyes

    Was darkness

    And everything that

    Could make tears roll.

    Desire was too real

    But the shadow dabbled

    In the puddle of those black pearls

    Hatred now prevailed

    Slit is the wish which hailed

    Which mixed in the air

    With a withering cry

    Which went unheard.

    It wasn’t sold , the feelings

    Here they were precious as gold.

    The shadows followed,followed from the darkest corners where

    It couldn’t be reached

    The passion couldn’t get more terrible

    The lives of them 

    Were in the hands of destiny.
    A light lit in the darkest cave

    Somehow, helped the thirsty slave

    It went away in a blink

    Cut were the ties and their absolute link.

    Soon appeared one day

    Unseen and unheard

    Wished that things will be

    Finally settled in this world.

    The chirping of the birds

    The cackling of the buds

    Were all unseen and unheard

    Only to find that the light

    Has actually vanished the shadow

    Gone with the wind

    The heart is still filled with mystery

    The passion is still flowing

    Hidden the rarest treasury

    Has finally been wiped off

    From it’s endless misery.
