Anwar

[A dark prison-house guarded by sentries at Constantinople. Thc mid-night of a new moon with silence prevailing everywhere, except occasional footsieps of sentries walking with heavy boots. A young soldier belonging to the National Army under the command of Anwar is lying captive there. Although rebellious in appearance, he looks older than his age. Today he has faced a Court Martial. Tomorrow he will be shot dead. So this is the last night of the luckless warrior fastened by iron chains around his limbs'. Suddenly he wakes up.Shouting, but finds nobody nearby. Only cold wind weeps for him, 'O the motherless'! ' The young rebel bites his left arm, loosing temper as he remembers' the treachery of his countrymen. He remembers his commander, who gave him the weapons to free his motherland. He shouts loudly calling his commander, 'ANWAR'.]

the b1ood has no more that warmth and valour,
