यहाँ उम्र बीत गयी देश को मेडल दिलाने में,
और वो एक पल नहीं लगाते अनपढ़ बताने में।@Javedakhtarjaduhttps://twitter.com/javedakhtarjadu/status/836537602819903488 
अपने आप को देश के प्रति समर्पण करने वाला व्यक्ति से ज्यादा ज्ञानी अपनी मातृभूमि पर कोई नहीं होता ।
जय हिंद।@Javedakhtarjadu https://twitter.com/javedakhtarjadu/status/836537602819903488 
Whatever it is, the buzz just refuses to die.
