“Martini Shaken Not Stirred

Feelings of love & hatred
Is like a ” martini
Shaken not stirred”
But where humanity
Is concerned
Line between them
Is totally blurred

Mixing vodka and
Orange juice in society
Is Totally acceptable
But, mixing hate
As well love
Is totally combustible

Hatred is like a Tsunami
Destroying everything
In its path through
War violence murder rape
Destroying lives of innocent people
Like having a chokehold over them
Till they have breathed
Their last

Love is like a
Bottle of perfume
When we spray
A scented misty
Aroma fills the room
Dispelling the
Gloom & the doom

Lastly, I would
Like to state
Let’s cross the street
By trading Hate
For Love

Choicest Happiness

    I am reaching out to invite you to participate in an exciting project that Zerbanoo Gifford, Founder of ASHA Center in the UK, is heading, which will be launched at the forthcoming World Zoroastrian Congress, New York in July 2022.

    This project is a website that will recognize and feature exceptional Zoroastrian women worldwide. The site will be called ZASHA. The Z for Zoroastrian and ASHA, the righteous way. It also stands for Zoroastrian Alliance of Sisters here and Abroad, which encapsulates the site’s mission and endeavors to honour and connect our Zoroastrian women worldwide. We need to honour and celebrate the collective achievements of all the exceptional women across the globe.

    YOU, Farida are one of the exceptional women I am inviting.
