Mujahid Ali Khan, a Delhi-based writer and an award-winning poet, writes poetry with words that trigger immense feelings and emotions in the mind of the readers. His poems are like broken ceilings and his words are like the plaster that falls out and makes its way into the hearts of the people.

Whether it is about love or friendship or the struggles of life that are reflected in Khan's poems, whoever reads them can easily relate them to their own life. That is why the medicine of pain and peace of the heart is the poetry of Khan.
Every day for Khan begins with a new thought, a new way of looking at the world around us, and making readers think differently. Sometimes he comes up with motivating and inspiring ideas. These reflections are turned into tight verses in Urdu, sometimes a ghazal, or a couplet, which he then polishes and posts on social media. The results are there to see - a stream of likes, shares and an increasing number of new fans and followers.
Khan begins his day by thanking God. He is at his best in expressing ideas through poetical means, especially emotions and feelings that otherwise would remain unexpressed. The resulting verses touch the mind, heart and soul of his readers.
One theme is always present in his writings, love. In addition, he dedicates his mini-epics to those who taught and inspired him. Not taboo are themes that are sordid or out of the ordinary, as these characters and subjects give to his poetry the edginess of a movie.
“Poetry is here to motivate us, improve our confidence, and make us see life from a different lens. It begins right in the morning when we send greetings and good thoughts across to our friends, family and others. I am just doing a small job by giving everyone fine thoughts and words to read and share,” says Khan.
