Our Land, Our Home, Our Heart

14 August, huh?

It is almost at our doorsteps. What are you planning to do on this special day? And I am talking about things apart from decorations and fireworks. Yeah, we should celebrate this day. After all, 14 August is our Independence day; a day of love and sacrifice. But I am thinking more along the lines of doing something productive for this land. We should give something back to this land we live on. Don’t you think?

We can start with little things; plant something, throw the trash/waste in the bin, water the ground and along with all of this, be good to our fellowmen. A big number of us already do carry out these acts, but at the same time, a big number of us do not. Can we join our hands on this: work for a better Pakistan?

Millions of people sacrificed their lives to give us the land we now call our home. I think it’s about time we start to own it and treat it like one. 

You know hoisting a flag, or decorating your houses with small ones, once a year, is not enough. It does show our passion and joy we feel for our country. But it mustn’t be restricted to just one day a year. What you say? Agree?

We stand under this flag as one because

We are PAKISTANIS FOREVER!

Ramadan and Eid

Oh Ramadan start hone wala hai! Tumne Eid ka dress decide kar liye? Meine to apna tailor ko bhe de diya hai…..

This is how  most of our population starts Ramadan, well,  mostly the females. Anyway the point of discussion here is that, why we think of Eid first when we need to prepare for Ramadan first? I think we have forgotten that the Eid is a gift to those people who have been good through out the Ramadan. Meaning they have fulfilled every requirements of Ramadan.

Eid is a time for joy for the Muslims, that comes after the month of Ramadan. But if you have made no changes during Ramadan, if you carry on the same routine, then do you really think you deserve this parcel of joy???

And Eid is not a day to let out your inner devils out. It is no doubt a day of joy for Muslims but you do not have to go all crazy and forget all your values neither the things you have learned in Ramadan. But  sadly, a lot of us do that.

Give it a thought and lets make some changes this time.

Wish all the Muslims out there a blessed Ramadan and a peaceful Eid.
