One Day in the Life of Javed Khan

I am so glad to tell you that my new book 'One Day in the Life of Javed Khan' is out! It is very close to my heart for the subject deals with justice and society. It is a Circadian novel that is The story takes place in one day and is based on a thorough research. 

This work proves that those who get injured, die or lose their kin are not the only victims of terrorism. There is yet another class of people whose lives are also ruined because of such incidents. Through a thin veil of fiction, this novel presents the truth along with some specific societal patterns. A young and sincere college student Javed Khan is wrongly framed in a terrorism case and is made to rot for years in prison while his family faces many miseries. By the time he comes out clean, his family has been ruined while his younger sister Ayesha fights demons of her own to hold their lives together. Nevertheless, they set out to start the life afresh, only to realize that they are in for the worse.

Javed represents an entire class of those who are not even acknowledged as victims. There are other important layers and sub-tracks that blend together to weave this story.

The book is available on Amazon World over as print and ebook (in India only as ebook)

Hell- Fire


There are many pressing issues nowadays like massive virus outbreak, Indo-China border tussle, unemployment, suicides, floods, economic slowdown and what not. Sadly, we are invested in scripted political dramas that TV channels play out day and night. We need to understand distractions and prioritize our issues.

Who smoked how much weed and who got into a stupid tweet war with whom are ways to snatch our attention from government’s failures in core matters. We need to see that a hellfire is raging around while we are enjoying it as if it is a holy fire.

Love, did I tell you that
I hand-picked each syllable of
The verses you tossed at me
In your fits of affection,
They still sing in my playlist
I never hush them up

Love, did I tell you that,
The hues you so loved
Are trapped in my knitting pins
On long haunting nights,
That half-done crimson sweater
Still comforts me to sleep

Love, did I tell you that,
The cotton socks we bought
In matching fluorescent colors
In flying pups, giggling kittens print
On the New Year flash sale once
Still warm my feet on coldest days

Love, did I tell you that,
You flew off but I am still caged
With my heart and soul tied
With handcuffs only I can see


We are often handcuffed by things that seem simple and innocuous. They affect us emotionally in many ways.
