  1. Very strong and harsh words but it expresses our wounds.

    Or as they say in Arabic: بتفرك الملح على الجرح

    May Allah (SWT) bless you and lead you to help with your words all the needy and all the just causes in your lifetime.

  2. As-Salaamu Alaykum Dear Rabab,

    Wonderful poem and heart touching Indeed (-_-).

    It seems someone is confessing about their wrong deeds.

  3. Dear Rabab,

    I really love almost all the words you put down on paper but this poem is utterly different. Your pencil is sharper this time. I read it again and again in order to understand thoroughly. You’ve put your finger on the hypocrisy (as well as many other bad deeds) in almost all communities/societies obviously. So true words which are the results of a critically, well observing, besides wisely and intelligently, thinking.

    I’ll be waiting for your next interesting words.

    All the best 🙂

    1. Dearest Sebnur (^_^),

      I want to thank you for your kind feedback on the poem and for your enlightening perspective; it never crossed my mind to associate ‘A Publicity Whore’ to communities and societies but it’s definitely fitting – very astute of you to make such a connexion.

      1. Dear Rabab,

        I thank you for sharing all your valued works with me and for your motivating kind words 🙂

        I know I always say this, but one more time: I’m glad & fortunate I know you as you’re very positively, inspiring me with your words, your thoughts and your ways 😉

        May You never become silent!

        Warmest of wishes 🙂

    1. Just to clarify, the poem’s about a specific media network but it also applies to all types of media. Although, I’m delighted to add, many readers had their own interpretations of the poem (as shown in some of the comments), which were also fitting and valid.

      Thank you for your kind comment (^_^)

  4. The Truth is revealed by Rabab very nicely in a Poem… Something “vague” & then revealing the deeper message within the Poetic lines.

    Nice!

    Congrats to the poetess & congrats to you [Valibhai Musa] for your analysis.

  5. ‘When I see a literate and sensible lady from a Muslim community, I am simply over- whelmed, as we hardly find very few in India. I appreciate Rabab Maher for her command over the language and playfulness with the words while constructing a poem.

    But to me, mere words are not much important, but the original source of words and context is more significant. It seems that the poetry is the result of conflict with the employer/media rather than deep understanding and visualization of negative role of media all over the world. In today’s world, all sorts of media have become much more powerful and they are at a service of rulers rather than humanity and values of human life. In most countries, media is in the hands of people who have wasted interests and they go to any extent to achieve their goals. This must be condemned.

    The very essence of the poem ‘A Publicity Whore’ is a criticism of the media in a brilliant poetic way, and for this very reason, hats off in respect of the poetess.’

  6. ‘I appreciate and salute the poetess, Rabab Maher, for her marvellous poem and an article beyond that poem as well. This is a real picture of the prevailing situation of the world. Lastly, I would like to say, the Almighty God save the ‘Truth’ from modern Media!’
