Someone asked me, ‘hamaray bachay Iqbal parhain gey ya English medium main hi phansay reh jaeinge’.
.
.
The question reminded me of how I was introduced to Iqbal. .
.
On my brother’s 11th birthday, my father came home with a carton. ‘Such big gift!!’ ‘My brother was excited & was sure that it was new Atari game.(Because I broke his old one🤷🏻‍♀️ .
Then my father opened the carton. To our disappointment the carton was full of books. Dil doob gaya. Ye Kia scene hai bhae 😟
.
.
Abu gee said; let us open the big surprise and he took out a set of books. It was Iqbal’s poetry collection. His Urdu language & Persian language books (with urdu translation)
.
.
Then he opened bang e dara (بانگِ درا) & read ‘Gaye aur bakri’ (گائے اور بکری) loudly. I still remember the last verse saying ; ‘yun tou choti hai zaat bakri ki, dil ko lagti hai baat bakri ki’ (یوں تو چھوٹی ہے ذات بکری کی، دل کو لگتی ہے بات بکری کی)
.
.
Then he asked my brother to read the next, & then I was asked to read the next. To my surprise, I enjoyed reading it!! That is how I was introduced to Iqbal.
.
.
he then said, there might be words that you don’t know. If so happens use this. There he opened the last book, it was ‘Fairoz ul lughaat’ (فیروز لغات)
.
.
An Urdu language dictionary. He showed us how to use it .
.
.
.
I did not know what was he doing by getting those books for us, then giving them to us as a prize and finally reading them for us. .
.
He introduced us to them and he was developing interest and curiosity. As it had always been usual for me to listen to poetry at home, I quickly developed interest. It was a tradition that If any of us would read any couplet/verse (شعر) ، my father would praise and would make it a big occasion. That’s how he instilled a good taste of poetry, a love for books in us. He gave us source to learn the language and made it clear that if we speak a language, we need to speak it as a pro. He still says ;
.
‘Two things are unbearable at my home,ghalat lafz bolna aur ghalat shaer parhna’
.
.
That’s how I learnt URDU. That’s not my kamal, I was just lucky that I was born in that home!! .

I hope everyone who are thinking whether or not to talk to their parents about #lgbtqcommunity, please give a benifit of doubt and start introducing the concept with Facts and see how it goes on. Most of our Parents honestly dont know what #lgbtq Is,since it was never part of any TV serials, #indiancinemas, Reality shows. It could be different with Parents who follow social media but i am talking about people who only watch TV, follow regular News channels & Youtube. .
How do we reachout to rural areas? 
How do we educate them so they can be supportive? .
