Margaret Mitchell (also known as Peggy Mitchell or Peggy Marsh), author of “Gone with the Wind” and Wylly Folk St. John became fast friends. Besides a passion for journalism that led them both to write feature stories for the Atlanta Journal Sunday Magazine, they had something else in common: boy nicknames.
In an accident that was traumatic for her mother although she was unharmed, when little Margaret was about three years old, her dress caught fire on an iron grate. Fearing it would happen again, her mother began dressing her in boys' pants, and she was nicknamed "Jimmy". Her brother insisted she would have to be a boy named Jimmy to play with him. Having no sisters to play with, Margaret said she was a boy named Jimmy until she was fourteen.
On the other hand, Wylly’s parents wanted and expected their first child to be a boy and the name, William Michael Folk, was decided long ahead of the baby’s birth. Her parents saw no reason to change their plans when their firstborn baby proved to be a girl. That explains her unusual nickname, which was pronounced the way that we currently say “Willie”. That’s what her family called her during her entire childhood. To add sophistication, she changed the pronunciation of her first name to “Wylie” (like the coyote) when she started college. Her uncle called her “Bill”. No one ever heard her husband call her anything other than “Baby”.
Sir Muhammad Iqbal(محمد اِقبال)November 9, 1877 – April 21, 1938(, widely known as Allama Iqbal, was a poet, philosopher and politician, as well as an academic, barrister and scholar in British India who is widely regarded as having inspired the Pakistan Movement. He is called the "Spiritual Father of Pakistan."
Honoring the Great Poet Of East.
A dream that turned into reality. Today we celebrate the man and his vision which made Pakistan possible.
The great soul of Iqbal!
We salute the divinity of your vision.
That always echoed an inspired voice.
We find no words to explain your horizon.
"We must create a society according to the vision of the great poet, who gave the idea of a separate homeland for Muslims of the subcontinent where they could practice their Islamic values and culture"
HSJ steel wishing the IQBAL DAY to entire nation.

Black world and l one ))) My poet a dream )))😘😘😘🤩 ...............МЕЧТА.................
Представляю: тихая избушка.
Трудитесь.В очах огонь горит .
Вмиг приходит муза,как подружка-
Это вечность с Вами говорит.
И Твоё лиричное волнение,
И Твои прекрасные мечты
Чувствую, как будто на мгновение,
Рядом оказался с нами Ты .
Размечталась...По щеке слезинка
Или капля дождичка сползла:
Да, Я плачу,бедная Каринка .
Я не встречусь с Вами никогда...
Это стихотворение посвещенно
Александру .Сергеевичу .Пушкину
