    Maj Gen Parvez Akmal’s literary piece is a good contribution to Army’s Literary Brigade’s achievements. Luminaries like General Dr. Shafiqur Rahman, Major Zamir Jafri, Col Mohammad Khan are just unforgettable. They keep on inspiring generations.

    AoA. Ramadan Mubarik.
    I am extremely grateful to you all for your kind comments on my modest effort; Mr. Mehmud Ahmed’s encouragement particularly touched me, though I can never imagine rubbing shoulders with the ‘Literary Brigade’ greats!! I haven’t even met Col Rashid Cheema and can’t thank him enough for introducing me to such learned people. Allah willing I’ll keep this literary communication alive and look forward to your objective comments.
    Profound regards,
    P. A. Lala

    The poem describes the prevelant scenario in an effective and touching manner. The situation is worsening day by day for the public but people at the helm of affairs are busy in conceiving and launching failed projects like Sasti Roti Schemes….of course wasting or minting big chunk of funds???

  4. Akhtar Malik says:

    Very nice piece of poetry indeed.

  5. Mehmud Ahmed (Brampton, Canada) says:

    When I was in active journalism and served in Lahore and Rawalpindi, I had the occasion to meet frequently what the Khaki-wallahs described “Army’s Literary Brigade”. It was headed by Brig Gulzar and had Major Dr Shafiqur Rahman who later became a General, Major Zamir Jafri, Brig A R Siddiqui, Col Masood, Col Mohammad Khan, Siddiq Salik who became a Brig and died in Bahawalpur Crash, Major Agha Babar. The Brigade had its civilian wing also that had Ikram Brelvi, Ikram Qamar, Roshan Naginvee (Military Accounts) and some others who use to write for Al-Hilal. One could often meet them in the Halqa-e-Arbab Zauq, some private sittings at residences and in later years in the GHQ Library where Col Mohammad Khan used to play host. After these luminaries completed their innings and departed for yonder, I thought the Literary Brigade had been disbanded. But reading various comments and poetry pieces in these columns, I feel I was wrong and am reminded of a line from Iqbal:
    Aisee chingaree bhee Ya Rab upnee khakister mein thee.
    Thanks to “Native Pakistan” that this hidden talent has started coming into lime light.

    Life was very simple in the past. Good poetry. Sir, keep writing. Regards.

  7. Lt Col Rashid Zia Cheema says:

    Nice story of ‘roti’.

  8. Azam Gill, France says:
