Ammara W Kazi


My efforts of a life time are all in vein,
in grief I’m,
my heart’s in pain,
my strength I’ve lost,

my mind is blurred,
I’ve lost the game.

where I’d fought for this day,
Lahore was burning in 65,
and we’d fought side by side,
but then comes tragedy of 71,
where five of us couldn’t b one

the enemy laughed and enjoyed the show,
we lost are bros in one bloody blow!
once again in kargil you asked for my blood,

For $155 per night — about the cost of a three-star hotel — both men and women convicted of misdemeanors can bunk in a special area of the Fremont Detention Center instead. While the new lodging option was intended to boost revenue and reduce overcrowding in county jails nearby, critics say the “alternative confinement program” is really just a jail for the rich.

With shared showers, foam mattresses, and few amenities other than high-definition television sets, the jail is no hotel. But for those looking to avoid a stay in the larger Glenn E.
