picWelcomeIntroduction……By                Yasmin Bokhari

 Zahid Shamsi is a Renowned poet, writer, critic, journalist, religious scholar and an active social worker. Over the time he has evolved Spiritually. His belief is that his spiritual energy has penetrated into his Soul due to two very strong logical reasons. One,the struggle of all the prophets, stamped by our last prophet, Hazrat Mohammad Mustafa SAWW’s teachings which were to design the best civilization for mankind. And two,the natural biological energy of his soil in his genes, purified with the five waters of the flowing rivers of Punjab, Pakistan, makes him understand the values, culture and above all the nature of the people. Hence this all combined, reflects his identity. He firmly understands that ultimately he is answerable to his soil in rendering his duties and responsibilities , because he knows that one day he has to go back and become compost with the soil and at that exceptionally important moment he need not be embarrassed he would rather embrace the soil with grace, dignity and a smiling face.
