कविताएं भावनाओं सी होतीं
शब्दों को पद्यों में पिरोतीं
सपनों का यथार्थ रूप
कविता अंधकार में धूप

क्रांति लाती कविताएं
हास्य से मन मोह जाएं
गंभीरता से भरे कुछ शब्द
सोचने को मनुष्य विवश

आहट ये विश्वास सा
भूत भविष्य आज का
समाज का सटीक चित्रण
कविता कामनाओं का उदाहरण
#Kवी #youthday
छत ये मिट्टी की
सोने नहीं देती
बारिश का डर तो
हर वक़्त बना रहता

निश्चल है ये मन
मस्तिष्क मगर फिर भी
जाने क्यों मचलता सा
होनी से डरता सा

एक दिन अपने छत को
पक्का मैं बनाऊँगा
पर मिट्टी तो फिर भी
वो साथ में आएगी

From Mundeshwari Devi Temple, Bhabhua, the oldest functional temple in the world, India is land of mystical temples, usually elaborated structures & are our most valuable assets. These temples remind us of architectural brilliance those days. My words for majestic temples.

Today is Int'l #YouthDay, a day for celebrating youths globally, encourage us & propose ways to improve our lives. Sadly in Nigeria, it's another day to discuss an unfavourable govt policy that suffocates an employment window for youths & MSMEs. This time Uber & Taxify. Thread
The public transportation system is ranked amongst the worst in the world. An insufficient and decadent multi-modal system, and an inhuman public road transport impacts negatively on the overall quality of life of Lagosians. The emergence of ride hailing apps helped reduce that.
Prior to their emergence, the average Lagosian had to either go by the buses or engage yellow taxis who charge exorbitant fares despite, an overwhelming majority of them being older than 20years, break down frequently and are inhabitable for humans. LASG turned a blind eye.

Take a photo or a video of yourself wearing a mask, share it and nominate friends to do the same ⬇️
Let me be clear - masks alone will not stop #COVID19 - we must 𝗱𝗼 𝗶𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝗹:

I won’t agree with @JoeBiden on plenty, but this November 3rd I will be voting for him as our next President.

I hope you will too. Here’s why:
100 Days. Because Joe cares about preserving and strengthening our global relationships. While T has trashed our allies in NATO, Joe recognizes the importance of trans-Atlantic diplomacy:
“Defending the liberal international order requires that we resist the forces of European disintegration and maintain our longstanding insistence on a Europe whole, free, and at peace.” Because yes, “The EU has been an indispensable partner of the United States.”

Here are some truths about that day that have not been publicized in honor of the legacy of the 600 odd brave lives lost (the media will tell you less than 200) in June 1976. #june16 #YouthDay2020
I once had the pleasure of meeting some of the student leaders of the time. Namely Sibongile Mkhabela, the only woman student leader who was one of the Soweto 11 Accused, who is now CEO of Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. Image
The "Soweto 11 Accused" are young student leaders who were captured and mostly tortured (electrocuted, testicles twisted with pliers and the latter) in jail for starting the protest.

Imagine if kids at Morris Isaacson told the brave ones who were protesting being taught in Afrik & Bantu edu on this day in 1976, to stop because of the school’s “reputation”? B/c they felt the school’s image & racist teachers needed to be protected more than black CHILDREN?
That’s what you ladies and gentlemen sound like when you say stupid shit like that about the women and girls fighting racism in schools today. That they should stop because an inanimate object (the school) is feeling pain but black pain doesn’t matter
I feel like it’s serendipitous that this convo and fight is happening around this time. A time for deep reflection on what has changed in SA and to look even deeper at what has not. The attitudes of many white South Africans unfortunately still mirror those of 1976 ...(cont.)

Happy #YouthDay #PSL football fans, I'm back with another piece of interesting research. So I went back and looked at crowd attendance at #AbsaPrem football matches

Here is what I found. THREAD 👇

#Amakhosi4Life #OnceAlways #DownsLive
It's a known fact that crowd attendance has been an issue for a long time. Others have mentioned price while travel time and safety are also major factors for a lot of fans. I will look at pure attendance numbers as well as jump into some research I found around #PSL attendance
To make things easier, I focused on the top 10 crowd attendance averages for the last 3 years. I then looked at the big three teams (Chiefs, Pirates and Downs) and tracked their average attendance record over the last ten years.
