POEM: Brilliant Beasts,Ghosts of our Land

The Brilliant Beasts, Ghosts of our Land



By Idris Katib



Peace of our land they plunder

And tear the fabrics of our joy

Only to put all and sundry asunder

In the manner of their ploy



The religion they hide under -5

For which they commit homicide

Brought knowledge as the first guide

Yet they live in the great blunder

That the way true is suicide



They seem to be read yet not well read -10

To come to terms that… Continue

POEM: Ibipeju

Ibipeju

One,whose birth united

Kins from far and wide

The crowning birth*.



Ibipeju,

My guardian angel

Who propelled the wheel of progress

My companion from youth

Who fought a silent fight



Ibipeju,

Who waited a long wait

A decade of tortuous

And tempting wait

Betrayers attempted to break the vow*

But she stood her ground



Ibipeju

A blessing of a wife

An alter ego

A tagged messiah*

And… Continue

ISLAM AND THE MEDIA

Islam and the Media



Discussion on Islam and the media cannot be done in isolation of the definition of either of the keywords, since the two are inextricable.



Thus, Islam, on the one hand, is generally defined as a religion of peace and submission to God's command-peace with Allah and peace with humanity. This is because the word " Islam" has its derivative from "Salaam", meaning "peace". It was popularized by prophet Muhammad, the son of Abdullah who was born in 'the year… Continue

LITERARY CHARACTERS AND THE REST OF US

Literary Characters and the Rest of Us



By Idris Katib



Living in literary world is another world entirely. It is different from the general world, our world. Our interests are not literary people's interests. So are theirs not ours. They travel into their own world of meditation, deep thinking and analysis of all that exists. They belong to either of two poles: those of science and those of literature. They are both researchers who unravel what we fail to unearth. They put… Continue

Male and Female Thinking

Imagine a typical husband-wife conversation: She says: “You are so stubborn, like a donkey!“, while he says: “You are illogical“. Why is that? Well, females have a bigger corpus callosum, which connects the two hemispheres of the brain, so they see everything from an emotional standpoint: Their memories and their dreams at night are about feelings, and that women are more romantic in physical terms (sex) is a no-brainer. Females, especially if they are…
