    Hi Yasmeen,

    Right from childhood, I used to wonder, why earth is not a single expanse of plain land-with all the greenery -trees shrubs and all. But, my mother had explained, it is like our life: this moment you are happy, next, you may not. So there are hills, valleys, troughs and big deep oceans and very high mountains on earth. I could not understand the meaning of what she said then; nor do I claim to know now. But your poem explains it.. Great work. Lovely poem. Congrats.

    The hills are always lively.They have always stories to tell and cherish from Hindukush to Himalayas-from Kashgarh to Karimabad- -from Rakaposhi to Everest- from Hunzas to the Tibetan plateaus to to Tawang.Stories never end be it changes the way it tells from Nishapur to Neshabur.Impressive write.
