In memory of Dr. Abdus Salam – by Zeeba Hashmi

 

Pakistan's only Nobel laureate, Dr. Abdus Salam

 

The sea breeze.

waving over a land called Trieste,

yet tidings of home,

made less known to us.

for a man who marked his footsteps there,

as the world salutes his legacy.

Dr. Abdus Salam, Dr. Abdus Salam!

Who was he?

I know not much about you,

yet you gave your body to the soil

of my land.

with a gravestone  that humiliates

your name.

Yes, I weep for you.

(by Zeeba Hashmi)
