Biography of Humera Sultana

I teach English Literature at Imam Bin Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.I got my doctorate in English Literature (Literary Criticism) from MANUU, Hyderabad, India. Besides studying English Literature, I calmed down my spirit of curiosity about understanding Islam by doing my Master’s in Islamic Studies from Osmania University, Hyderabad, India. OU applauded my spirit of enquiry by awarding me two gold medals! Also, I have a Post Graduate Diploma in the Teaching of English from CIEFL, Hyderabad, India.
Furthermore, I started teaching English language and literature in 1995. Ever since then, I have exulted in showing the sophomore or the undergraduate the awesome capabilities of the English language and the surprise and mystery of the human soul by inspiring in them a love of English language and literature.
Interestingly, I am a student of life, love and the soul and have been inspiring the love of these entities in my students. And added to this, WHEN INSPIRATION STRIKES I carve it out in the form of a poem, tweet it or jot down as a facebook status. I strongly believe that self-love is the best gift you can give to yourself.
Dr.Humera Sultana.

The Epitaph

The roots that hold my heart are buried in my bowels
Its veins spread in my being and coiled up in the pit.
A coil stir sways the heart and the groins groan
A chill goes down the spine, an eerie feeling clenches the ribs
Lightning strikes the heart, it’s a birth of love’s anguish
A pleasure explored, a desire muffled
A secret whispered, a wish fulfilled
Freezes marrow and squeezes through every cell
Strangles a sob in the chest and shivers its way out.
