Kashmir’s Soliha Shabir, 22, awarded in India’s World Records reviving Habba Khatoons’ life through poetry

 Soliha Shabir, a 22-year-old author wrote a magnificent work of recreating the life of Habba Khatoons through poetry and had her name added to India’s World Records, Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) on April 7th.  She is the first youngest author in Jammu and Kashmir “who has recreated the life of Habba Khatoons poetry,” says ANI.

In her school days, she played the role of Habba Khatoon a Kashmiri poetess of the 16th century, in a play. Inspired by her life she wrote poems which got compiled as her third book ‘Zoon – The heart of Habba Khatoon’ which got recognized by India’s World Records.

She has felt very connected to “Habba Khatoon from her childhood, she said. “India’s World Records is like Guniess Book of World Records. I registered for it and they verified if I have given the correct information.  I was approved as the first girl from Jammu and Kashmir who has recreated the life of Habba Khatoons poetry.”

“Zoon is the first book that has recreated the theme of Habba Khatoon’s poetry and essence,” said Shabir.

Shabir has so far written three books, ‘In the lawn of dark’, ‘Obsolete- The poem Market’, ‘Zoon — The heart of Habba Khatoon’. She is studying her Master’s in English Literature, and she continues her writing.

She said that she started writing from age of 15 and in her ninth class, she successfully wrote her first poem with the help of her teacher.

She then went on writing, and her first book ‘In the lawn of dark’ is a compilation of 200 self-motivational quotes gathered over years.

She said, “From 8th class, I somehow became less social. I hated making friends. Sabiya Gulzar teacher encouraged me to write after she noticed a calibre for it, then I started writing. Fortunately or unfortunately, I got 91 percent in the 10th standard. There are some societal norms that those who are good at studies should take up medical stream. parents suggested me to opt for medical studies and I chose it. Then I got selected in medical.. but I had no interest.”

Her second book ‘Obsolete- The poem Market’ is a collection of poems.
Initially, Shabir received no support from her family but convinced of her passion and hard work, they supported her and gave her confidence to go ahead.

Her sister, Farhana Shabir said, “I am very proud that at this age she was able to publish books. I urge everyone to follow their passions and make use of their talents. I feel that there are many girls who have different sort of talents, They should come to the fore.” (ANI)
