We do hope that our readers will like this interview accordingly.

Zill-e-Huma: First of all, I would like to pay thanks to your good self for your time for having an interview with us. Then I would request you to kindly say a few words about yourself in your own words so as the readers of All Round View could know more about yourself.

Rabia Basri:

میں بس ایک بار لاجواب ہوا
کسی نے جب کہا “کون ھو تم”؟

It is not that easy to introduce yourself. Well, I am Rabia Basri, writer of three books of poetry, the Co-Founder & President of the Young Women Writer’s Forum, Islamabad, Pakistan since last sixteen years; and I am working as a coordinator and a social worker; and above all a mother of two cute kids.

Zill-e-Huma: Interesting. What are their names?

Rabia Basri: We are five siblings, three brothers and two sisters. My father passed away when I was only fifteen years old; and two years ago I lost my eldest brother, that are the unbearable losses of my life. My mother is a house wife who always stood besides me. My better-half is an ICT Engineer, and an artist working with some Media Projects. He is a very cooperative and caring person who is my strength. I have two kids, Masha Allah my son Rayyan will turn six in October Insha Allah and daughter Hana is four years old Masha Allah.

Zill-e-Huma: What is your date and place of birth, and anything important related to your birth?

Rabia Basri: Well, my birth date is 21st April, and I was born in Rawalpindi. There is noting important related to my birth date except that my baba gave me the 1st gift of my name Rabia Basri, that I suppose is the important point of my birth.

Zill-e-Huma: How was Rabia Basri as a child?

Rabia Basri: I was a very serious kind of child, who doesn’t like mixing up with everyone, and I was very choosy, but still I was very active in Debates and other competitions from my early childhood. I remember my Principal used to help me to stand on chair for debates. She was always calling me as “the pride of the school”. I made only two friends during my childhood and still they are my besties. Losing father at a very young age was a very tragic turning point of my life that changed my life immediately and made me a self made person.

Zill-e-Huma: Was it a physical death or did he die of any disease or any other reason?

Rabia Basri: He died of cancer. I can never forget those moments, as I mentioned above losing my father, seeing him struggling against fatal disease of Cancer was something unforgettable, and indeed the the saddest part of my life.

Zill-e-Huma: Please also let’s know about your educational & professional background.

Rabia Basri: I did Masters in Education. I optioned literature in my Intermediate and Bachelors, as I was always interested in literature.

Zill-e-Huma: And what about your achievements and failures during your education?

Rabia Basri: Alhamdulillah I have been considered a very good student plus very active in extra curricular activities. I was awarded the Best student of College, Post Graduate College Satellite Town Rawalpindi at the occasion of College Convocation. Best debater for four years. I won the best debater award and cash prizes many times. Best Debater at National level and the best poetess award. I was the Stage Secretary of my college,and conducted many programs during my four years of college life. I was Secretary Literature Society. I was the editor of my College Magazine “Rawal Chronicle” this is indeed an honor for me. As far as failures are considered I got admission in Quaid-e-Azam University in M.Sc Anthropology and I couldn’t join due to certain personal reasons. That’s what I still feel regretted.

Zill-e-Huma: What was your favorite subject and which subject did you not like?

Rabia Basri: I love Urdu, English and Physics and I simply hate Maths.

Zill-e-Huma: Almost every person faces struggles and hardships in the early life. Can you please tell us about your struggles and hardships that you faced during your early and educational life?

Rabia Basri: Yes, that’s a very valid question. I have been gone through couple of issues during my school and college time. My Maths and Bio teacher always discouraged me, even I used to give good tests but still she had been in doubts “is it done by you, I mean really you did it” this comment always let me down and still I cannot forget this voice.

Zill-e-Huma: Anything you wanted but could not achieve related to education?

Rabia Basri: My father always wanted me to be a Doctor but after his death, I couldn’t make it up.

Zill-e-Huma: What about your professional life and responsibilities in organization that you are currently involved with?
