2007 Roundup


Many people are writing about how the year 2007 went for all of them, well m too doing one or the same thing. I aint sure weither in this year I as a person have really affected someone means did my presence or did my thoughts help somone out, but for me the presence of a few people owing the most to my best friend has helped me alot through the ups n downs that i had to face the whole year.

Starting with the 1st few months, life was a mixture of quite alot of emotions, my birthday was a great thing for me as i had my bestest friend to share it wid me ofcourse along with my parents n m lovely elder sister. Had quite a good time, then had my exams just like everyone else. Yet the time span between mid of June till end of September ill count as the hardest of all for me, unfortunately i really dont like to say it but this was the time i was supposedly on Vacations, spending my time in my homeland, but i really feel shameful to say all this that why do people make life so complicated for others, this was the thing that i saw not only in my relatives but its just the thing that is spread all over, why do we have to face sarcasm over silly things. We cant do something as we are pointed by others who themselves do the samething and have their own stupid reasons for doing so. There is even the fault of our parents who prefer to listen to others and ignore the debate that arises when their children offend of what that is happening around them. I too had to keep my mouth shut and just to act blind and deaf of what evryone opposed over me and my sister, just because if we did say something the issue will come out in the daily morning paper as the Top Headline stating what we had done in a way that it resembled as if we had some connection with Al-Qaeda. It’s like, yes we are living with our relatvies, but is it something that u keep imposing on us? dont we take care of u? does the only thing that matters is money and there is no place left for love and affection? .

Well thanks to Allah the misery finally ended and we headed back home by end of September, it was ramzan the loveliest and the most favourite month for me rather i guess for all of the Muslims, i dont know what it holds but its the month i would love to be for the entire year. Eid was a special package as always, had fun with my family as didnt have any relatives out here whom we can go out and greet, but yet again all of our Muslim brothers and sisters belonging to different countries are our family when we are living away from our country. We share our Eid with them and enjoy in the same way as we do back in our land with our relatives, and its a fact that here we enjoy our time more with them rather then when we are with our relatives because when the matter switches towards finding any possible fault in ur preparation rather then really celebrating the festival then the thing gets offensive and the true taste of love and family bonding is lost.

The month of November got a bit dragged lols really didnt get to know why but it seemed to be like a never ending month, then came December and ofcourse Eid -ul – Azha, well Eid is the only occasion that varies from ages, like its said that Eid is only for Kids and Women ( like u know as poor Men only have to empty their wallets over Eidis and for the shopping of ladies lols). December also had many more things but for now i really dont wanna mention them here.

As for now this entire year for me was like a student, well a man’s whole life is like a student, but this year for me was rather on an emotional journey as before the college studies and kindergarten memories didnt give enough time to think about any other issue, but just as its said by many others that the moment u step in ur professional life ur immediately surrounded by a group of hounds, be it a boy or a girl, life becomes equally tough for both of them, including which career to choose, weither to work and study together or just work and leave studies and stuff like that, for me my career was supposed to be something else but just because of the nature of the people i saw in Pakistan i purposelly refused to step in there alone as i know what i am, and i really didnt want to make my parents feel bad regarding me( ok WHY! coz i just cant have control over my mouth and i cant bear hypocrisy and the person who lies gets on my bad list the very moment). My best friend has really taught me alot regarding many of the issues, he corrected my perception about differnet religious and political issues. I have felt a change in myself from the person i was when i stepped out of high school then in the one whom im now. There is still so much i have to learn, so much i want to see and explore. Just there are prayers for not only myself but for my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters that no matter how bad situation ur stuck in just once call Allah from deep within, ull definitely find a way out of that blackhole that ur in, and to never blame Allah for any thing as He is not the one who messes things up, its our own deeds that drags us on the edge.

There are just two main things that ill surely try to get rid off in the year 2008 inshallah, and that is my short temperedness and a real bad habbit to point out things. I pray that Allah gives me strength to fight against my Will, and never to hurt someone not only by my hand but also not from my words.

Allah blesses all of us Ameen

Dunt know what to say and why m here but right now i feel like i have transformed into some vampire, i wanna bite people drink blood :O i know it sounds weird but this is what m feeling ryt now, bit irritated of all the lies flying around me bugging me each sec. One moment its this thing and the next the thing is spun around a round table, just like a conference on a round table where everyone spills watever is there inside of them when they get their turn, without thinking, without analysing what they really are saying. Dunt know when our nation will develope its self, we are educated its not that we are illitrate but the thing is most of em r literate illitrate means Parhay Likhay Jahil. Dun care what others want, what others think, what will be the consequences and stuff.the list goes on and on..Was really frustrated thats why thought to spill something out, may b i aint right too, but what will be the next Big Lie coming out from the officials??still a mystery..but guess we wont have to wait that much as there has happened so much in the past 24hrs that now we can even expect that in our country babies wont wait 9 months for birth..

27th December 2007


Another day marked in the history of Pakistan, another life lost and listed in the bucket of millions who lose there life everyday, another family included in the rage. Is this where our country is leading, who so ever did all this didnt even think where it might lead, uptill now in the past 2 years i think the records of suicide bombing attacks all over pakistan would have crossed thousand cases in this time span.

Do we care what the other people think about us, do we really care about anything, yeah may be this article would come at a 1000th number in the list of articles that would be typed n printed just now n just like those one’s mine also wouldnt make any mark, but i want to say my word, i want to say what i feel, what kind of rage im feeling now, i aint involved in any party or social circle, i really never care about politics, but what i really care about is what we are doing to mark our country safe and at peace.

People are talking s**** about us and we dont have a single word to defend ourselves, are we so selfish, is this wat we are, dozens of politicians have come and left causing the same harm, the same destruction. Kharabi mulk Pakistan mai nahe hai kharabi lafz Pakistani mai hai, the problem is not with the country the problem is with us the so called citizens of Pakistan, yes she has died, the lady has passed away then why on earth are u causing so much harm, so much anger against the people who have nothing to do with it, what is the fault of other citiznes that u r burning cars, breaking glasses, open firing, what is the purpose of all this, is it giving us any spiritual relief, is it of any use, people who are innocent and dont know what has happened so far, coz they were at their work places till now, u r killing them beating them up, just for the fault that they r heading back towards their houses. People at their home dunt feel safe as people in rage are breaking the windows of their houses, burning their cars down, yeah sab kia mulk Pakistan ka kasoor hai, nahe yeh sab hum Pakistanion ka kasoor hai, then why should people point on our land we should be the ones who should be pointed…

Im just sick and gtng sicker even more, sitting so far from my land worried bout my loved ones who r stuck in their homes, risking their lives, is this is the reason and the point in which we fight for freedom is this democracy, the freedom to do anything in the country, burn people alive, kissi ka ghussa kissi pr nikal diya jaye, if we have the knowledge the sense to choose what is right then why on earth do we elect them are we f**** blind why cant we see whats going on around us. Plenty of propaganda displayed by media is increasing the ever pumping rage of the locals

I dont want to say much as my senses arent with me right now, m shameful of what and where has our citizens lead our country, we keep on pointing fingers at everyone not knowing that the remaining four fingers are poiting back at us. If anyone wants to know what others are thinking about us and wants to defend our say…do visit this link

Pakistani Culture


The lady in the right clearly depicts how a Pakistani woman is portrayed around the globe in the present age, bt where on earth has those “kurta, shalwar and sheehsay wali chaadar” disappeared, wasn’t that our heritage? Is this the way our culture was meant to be, isn’t it considered to be blind pursuit of the western trends?
Why are we following the things that are not meant for us, here talking bout pakistani culture, or the way a pakistani girl should dress up doesnt at all means that she should be in a black gown, all covered up till only here eyes are visible, the way hijab is described in Quran doesnt at all means that a girl should compulsorily be in a skarf, rather she can cover her head n hair by possibly anything, and the concept of abaya n all too explains that a woman should b dressed up in a manner that she doesnt make herself appealing to the market, or seeming to be wandering as their at home, it doesnt explains any where that she should certainly be in a black gown. Its just coz of some misconceptions that has led to such confusions not only between Muslims but also the manner in which Muslims are being presented in the outer world.

Now my question here is that Is this the way we expect our women to dress up? Do we expect to see such a girl to be roaming around the streets? Would any of us expect our mothers, daughters, sisters or wives to dress up following this culture? Then why has our media gone so far showing the stuff that at all isnt representing what we are? Who is responsible for all this? The governments, the channel heads, or the people? Is this how our media should be show casting our culture, is it representing the true Pakistani heritage in the best possible ways or it seems to be influenced by the western culture. As all of the people that are appearing on our channels deeply marks the state of western influence over them, but our media wasn’t like dis at all just 5-6 years back, then what has happened to our dramas? what has happened to our cultural values? have we forgotten it all?


Is it necessary to appear on screen pretending to be as we are one of the western nations, preparing award shows that portray us as some other state. Was this the word on which Pakistan was battled for, was this supposed to be the end after 60 years of independence that we become part of the same thing from which we unchained oursleves long ago. For progress and development is it compulsory to take off our clothes and start speaking junk not just about anything but on our country as well, where has prode gone? where has the pride of being a Pakistani and a Muslim gone ?
Following some other culture isnt bad, unless you follow the rules of being the member of an Islamic State as well as representing yourself as a Muslim, why does the other nations now point us on being Muslims, thanks to the growing Media and Osama Bin Laden, one has made us a terrorist and other a social fool. Spending millions over mobile adds where the public doesnt have anything to eat 3 days time a day, how could they possibly spend on mob credits. Is this marketting? Or is it like chasing the bandwagon? Its almost perplexing to see all this happening and no thought about it. Why is this being the only part that we have to follow, what about science and tecnology, i know we are low at the resource level but when there can be done so much for TV Channels then why not for libraries and computer institutes, if we can collabrate together for TV Soaps then why not in this?

The 24/7 running dramas that isn’t the way we have our family values, teaching our young and old both at the same time about plotting schemes, making false relationships, degrading family values and many more other things that werent part of us before. Our family values arent this as it is being showed, its simply copying and pasting some other stuff upon stuff without any inspection or scrutinising what effect they would possibly cause on our nation and the changes are being felt. Young girls ruining theirself just to look like a model neither realising the fact that that’s TV, that world isnt real and in fact those innocent girls are far better then them. If channels could become a bit true meaning playing a sincere role in character building and nation building as well.

I still belive the same that following other cultures isnt a bad thing unless it keeps u within ur boundaries, and disaster happens when one forgets what he/she is, and start following blindly everything that leads to a stage where the conseqeunce is losing ur ID there is a famous urdu quote stating “Kawwa chala Hans ke chal aur apni chal bhe bhool gaya”
