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!

Do You Miss Yourself?

Do you miss yourself?

The person you were before your first loss, before you had your first heartbreak, before you came face to face with the harsh side of this world, and all those double faced people?

Do you miss that version of yourself before all of this?

I know I don’t. I just miss the good old times I had, when I was naive.

What Matters…

The number of people standing beside you don’t matter, what matters is honesty and loyalty. Even if it is just one person, as long as there is trust and sincerity in the air, you will be just fine.

A Plea…

I know I am not the only one, still we are not enough. 

I have a wish, a request, probably a long-sighted dream. It saddens me to see our people filled with so much hate for each other. We can’t be born with this!

Babies are a gift from heaven and heaven is a no place for hate or anything dark. None of us are born with hate in their hearts or hate for their fellow beings. It is something that is drilled into us. 

Hate is not the first feeling we encounter, whereas love comes naturally and is there from the very beginning. 

I am not talking about some crazy love or even romantic kind, I am talking about the deep, pure one. The kind of love that makes you put others first, the kind that compels you to be respective and caring towards everyone despite of their status, color, religion, age or background. 

We should not hold others’ differences against them. We should try not to hold any grudges against anyone. No one is perfect; after all we are humans, we are not supposed to be.

Things are tend to go wrong from time to time, life is not a smooth ride. But at least we can try to have a stable mind. If one of us is having a break down or something, at least the other one can try to be on the good end. It all depends on what you value more, tearing or keeping together, spreading love or planting hate, becoming a better fellow being or just making it all about yourself.

This is a simple plea; simple but demanding, that’s why I am requesting you to at least try. With all your heart ‘n’ soul give it a try to:

  • Be humble.
  • Be kind to others without expecting anything in return.
  • Be polite with everyone irrespective of their ages, color, rank, religion or background.
  • Replace the love of power with the power of love.
  • Put a stop to violence, sexism and racism.
  • Be humans not Gods.
  • Be respectable towards others irrespective of sex, color, rank, religion or background.
  • Fight the evil in yourself and never let it win.
  • Spread as much love as you can and as long as you can.

The list of good deeds can go on and on but just writing about is not it. Make these deeds go on and on by touching hearts ‘n’ soul of those around you.

Try to offer your understanding, love, respect, friendliness and peace to the world, even when you don’t get much in return, keep trying. One day, your good heart will touch another, and from there another and so on. The chain has to start from somewhere…

We are all humans with a beating heart, right? Then let’s prove it.

Are You Up for the Challenge?

People are not your personal punching bags. They can be million things but never this. Just because you are hurting, doesn’t mean that you are allowed to scar others or if it is raining upon you, doesn’t give you any right to push others in the puddles as well.

There are people among us, who are bleeding, who are dragging their lives around, who are barely alive but still, somehow they find a way to ease others’ paths. They are quite few, almost near to none, but THEY ARE among us. So, you see, it is possible; being nice to people, even when one is hurting, is not some ‘alien concept’, rather, it is the time when it matters the most.

You wondering why? Well, anyone can be nice and gentle when they are in high spirits but when one’s world is crashing down and they still remember to be kind and gentle, can be quite a challenge.

Are you up for it?

Two Distinctive Traits

Being proud and being shy can never come on the same level. Sometimes, people mistake one trait for another.

Let me tell you some differences between the two.

Proud people look down to you, shy people can’t even look up. 😉 Well, they can but they have trouble making eye contact. Some proud people make you feel bad about yourself. Shy people, well, they mostly turn out to make a fool of their own selves or stay in the background.

Somethings are Better Left Alone…

People are getting tired of asking what’s wrong,

and

She is running out of nothings to tell.

 

In herself, she carries a fire,

A fire of words, of feelings,

of emotions, of stories.

 

Somethings, she will never be able to open up about.

Inside they burn her,

Outside they are nothing more than a wandering smoke.

 

How to fix this,

How to begin…or

Even from where…

Rules for ‘Give and Take’

“If you want something from people, you need to learn to give as well.”

“Why?”

“Because people are no magical pouch. You can’t just take and take from them and expect them to be always there for you.”

Break the Silence, Raise Your Voice!

justice

We talk about human mannerism, as if we are the most mannered people around

When there can’t be any more savage animals than us, ever found!!!

I don’t know where to start on this, or even how!

There are monsters, real monsters plucking off our little delicate flowers, our darling little angels. Such horror!!

You probably heard about the current incident. About Zainab, a 7 year old kid, who was kidnapped, rapped and then murdered. This incident took place in Qasur, Pakistan. Her dead body was found among a pile of heap.

world-asia-42637027

A delicate little flower was plucked and squashed. Just like that, as if she was nothing, as if she meant nothing. And she is not the only one. There are billions of boys and girls, who are facing the same horror around the world.

Can you imagine what their families must have gone through? Can you even feel the pain, the agony they must have been going through? We can’t do much to take away that suffering from them, but we can stand by their side and can raise our voices for justice, justice for those children.

This is not a random matter that you can ignore. You need to, we need to raise our voices, raise ourselves for these innocent little souls. We need to get justice for them. We need to stand up as a society, against such barbaric crimes. We need to put an end to this.

We hear about such tragedies now and then, shed some tears on them, feel bad for a day or two and then become silent again. Can’t you see, the silence is strengthening the rapists!

Break the Silence, and

Hang those Culprits!

Don’t let this littel girl’s (Zainab) murder be just another tragedy. Please, I am requesting you, do not let this incident go under the rug too.

Raise Your Voice,

Raise Your Words,

And Make them Pay!

This is sickening, how such criminals can walk free. They are monsters and monsters deserve to be caged and punished. Make him pay. Set an example for the whole world, for others like him, so no one even thinks about going down this lane again.
