Biography of Akhtar Jawad
My grandfather at Jamia Nizamia, Delhi
when found himself a failure,
he migrated to Medina whereat,
he obtained his dream's lovely allure,
the degree of Shaikh-ul-Hadith there
(the final degree of a Muslim Schollar) .
A pretty rose after a long endure.
My father, a Moulvi Alim from Nizamiah, Delhi
and Moulvi Fazil from Nadvat-ul-Ulema Lucknow,
when as a Moulvi, found himself a failure,
switched to Aligarh for modern studies,
and secured marks during post-graduation
that is still a record.
Then he studied law at Lucknow,
Practiced as a lawyer at Gorakhpur,
but then he found himself again a failure,
How he could be a successful lawyer?
He could never become a liar!
He said, as a moulvi, he's a failure
As a lawyer, he is a failure
And that's why
he switched to the profession of teaching
He obtained the degree of Bachelor of Teaching from Aligarh
And he was appointed as a lecturer there.
I am also a failure,
As an accountant I always finished my works
in two or three or maximum four hours.
My seniors went on adding more works to my job description,
but they could never force me to earn more
by sitting late and working overtime.
I don't mind taking guidance from any book of wisdom
Besides Holy Koran,
I always remained guided by Bhagvad Gita.
" Karmanye vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana."
(You have the right to work only but never to its fruits.)
I am hopeful,
I don't know what I procure,
but the pains I endure,
make me so much confident and secure,
I'm sure, I'm sure and I am sure,
one day I'll be a master of allure.
(If God wishes so.)

Akhtar Jawad Poems
I Am In Love
I am often so attracted, Mesmerized and enchanted, Having watched pretty things, With magic in their wings,
Burning and melting, Lightning but no thunder, Tears dropping drown like icicles, Freezing but not cool,
A Great Poetess
Admired and enjoyed, As a guide I deployed, Messages I found, In her poems so profound,
A Broken Doll
When someone broke my heart, One never knew one was sitting in my heart, I am not picking broken pieces of my heart, I am picking pieces of someone,
A Teen Aged Widow
When the morning star, Sees first sun ray, And disappears, In grief and distress,
Friendship is an amazing relationship, I don't know how others understand, I don't know how others withstand, It is something hidden and locked by a zip.
A word widely misspelled, Dictionary adds and justifies, And over all accepted, A welcoming compromise.
Two Flowers And The Bird
Alas! it's me who fell down in love! But one who got a crown in love, Almost alike both are pretty flowers, Smiled, Oh Bird! In your handsome bowers,
Here Bloom The Flowers
Every day I see the golden rays titillating the partly open dreaming eyes. The virgins open a little, show a glimpse of their colors,
A Guide For Girls In Love
A man who is never sentimental, Always discussing philosophy and ethics, Always busy in business dynamics, And not admires you when you're emotional,
Something Sweeter Than Honey
Colors of your image, aroma of your petals, taste of the honey, I can only imagine
A Ceiling Fan (Heart Beats With Nature -...
I like the rotation of its lovely wings Looks as if three beautiful maids Opaque costume becoming transparent Thanks for the naught, you naughty blades!
A Rose Flower
After a fine mild rain, I walked on the pavements, Of a garden of flowers, Aftershocks of showers,
Shape like a heart in love of someone, Having a name like the heroine of a love story, All round I see the resorts for love, Nude of the nature with a hidden glory.
Keep The Beauty
The dancer of space,
A charming face,
Music of fountains,
And the divers.
All on duty.
Keep the beauty.
