The Sun also Shines in Pakistan

Books by Manjari Sharma

My book is about the torture of being victims for one's colour or culture. The novel talks about how everyone is biologically and mentally connected to a star. The story talks two stories in parallel: one in which the Star- which happens to be the most respected star in society as well as a Pakistani also turns out to be world’s biggest criminal. While this part of the story talks about all the vicious crimes he committed and the terror he spread, the parallel

I wish that I could take that night back. I haven’t been able to sleep quite well since. That’s a lie. I’ve been sleeping a lot. I just haven’t been able to sleep peacefully. I’ve heard that if something troubles you a lot And you end up ignoring it while laying aw  Read More...

Don’t worry, it will never be alright.

We will be alright. We will dance, We’ll sing, It’ll be okay again But was it ever okay? To go back to a normal being, Normal has to exist on some plane But the truth lies On every line Is that I have always felt like this again and again. I have always had my tears on the edge of my eye  Read More...

Dead rose petals squashed inside a book

They say that when you a sing a lie more than thrice, Some part of your conscious believes it to be the new truth. Ironically, every time I told someone our story it became a little less of the truth. It became the sad old reality and the magic drained out. Simply of two people, once together and th  Read More...

I understand what numb feels like now. Numb isn’t not feeling pain, It’s being so used and abused by that pain With every single blade that the silver hits just like the skin. The blood that runs through the veins of the blade, the skin and knife so indifferent. It’s feeling like i  Read More...

It’s hard for me to say that I find my body worthy Of fitting in a crowd where I can show it off. I find it weird to leave my stomach uncovered Because that’s all I’ll be thinking about when talking to someone Or riding my shorts too high when I meet your eyes. You see, losing a fe  Read More...

Listen. I’m seventeen. I’m meant to be a contrast of knowledge. I’m meant to know very little about the real world But I’m assumed to speak too much. I’m supposed to be reckless, running around dark parking lots But I also sit in my room stressing out about college. I&r  Read More...

You wield the power to change her into a monster. You hold her hands tightly with yours and she Can either feel the softness of your palms Or your clenching fingernails.

They ask me why I’ve gotten such a big mouth for a lady And too thin of a stomach for a girl. They question my hair, picking it apart strand by strand I wish I could scream back at them, “Beware, this is a no man’s land.” These legs weren’t silked for you to trace along  Read More...
