Is the Supreme Court out just to get the Government?

Listening to a new item on the radio today, a single thought occurred to me “What the hell is wrong with the Judiciary?” Now that seems to be a question that has been asked by almost everyone in the last few days! So there is nothing new there! But in all seriousness, just for emphasis, let me say it again. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE JUDICIARY?”

It actually seems the judiciary has limited its role to simply making the Government look bad! More so it seems that the most important role of the judiciary as an institute has become to just be a hindrance in the Governments path!

Every decision that the Government takes is called in for accountability almost immediately by the Higher Courts, and it actually seems that half the time the Government is making rounds of the courts!

In their self-belief that they are doing the right thing, the Apex Courts are forgetting that if it is about revenge, then they are taking it out on the wrong party. And if it is about doing the right thing, then you first need to re-consider the recent verdict on Mukhtaran Mai‘s case.

In all honestly, I seriously feel that this Government has hardly had any break to actually continue working seriously! If it isn’t MQM making a fuss, it is the Judiciary playing all God-like!

And it has to be said, that the failure of this Government is because of such hindrances!

Is using too much “I” wrong?

A friend pointed this thing out to me that I use a lot of “I” in my messages I use. Let me quote his message for you

“just read ur txts… its all ‘I don’t’ and ‘I feel’ everything is from your perspective.. if everyone starts seeing things frm their perspective, u knw wat’ll happen.” 

Now I have never really thought about this before, but when you come to think about it, YES maybe I do use it a lot now! I never use to before! This I know for a fact.

It was always about the other person, it was all about being nice and sweet! But now not so much anymore! Reason! Because sometimes you just have had enough of  it people!

You always tend to get hurt this way, or at least I have! So Some times yes, you do feel like being all “I come FIRST! ” and when I do that, you can think of me as a self-involved person as much as you like!

The Youth Parliament: Reviews on the First Impression!

Let me break the news people, although I have my doubts how many of you out there are actually reading it. But I have been selected as an MPA for Sindh Assembly for the Youth Parliament! And I have to tell you it was simply exciting.

I have always had an interest in Politics… I mean I come from a family in which for the longest of time we only had one picture in our house, and that too of Karl Marx. So I guess my political views are clear to you all now.

We went for the first ever session of the Youth Parliament completely unaware as to what was to be expected out of the whole program and what was to be expected out of us. Once there for the program on the 23rd of April 2011, due to began at 10:00 am and delayed for at least an hour, things started to look to me just as blurry as the state of our country at the moment.

The First Ever meeting of the Youth Parliament, Sindh Assembly

The itinerary for the day consisted of Elections, Oath taking ceremony, Cabinet Selection and Oath Taking and lunch! We had absolutely no idea about the elections or how the parties were to be formed, but it turned out that the campaign session for the election was in full swing all over Facebook to which I was completely oblivious. But i guess we are the youth who are all ready to bring a revolution about through the internet!  Continue reading

Five stages of Grief

” Lexie: Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.

Mark: It isn’t just death we have to grieve. It’s life. It’s loss. It’s change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That’s how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can’t breathe, that’s how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won’t feel this way. It won’t hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can’t control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you’re past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Chief: Acceptance.

– Lines from Greys Anatomy


These for me are some of the most beautiful lines ever written! They are honest, relate-able, and is about something that we have all been through. Loss, Grief, Change are all emotions that we feel on a daily basis, and somehow we learn to accept it and move past it to a point where it doesn’t hurt that bad.

A modern day love story – Part 2

Last Saturday, the second of my best friends – the first got married last year only – got engaged last Saturday, and it was story that truly made one believe in true love.

The two of them had been together for almost 10 years now, and to be honest, I never thought that they would work out.

After all, he is a Sunni belonging to a Memon family – who rarely marry out of their community, and the she is a Shia, belonging to

Her Happy Day!

Quetta. I won’t deny it, but we often spoke of them as a helpless couple, with absolouetly no future.

But alas, they proved us all wrong! And actually made it happen!

He fought his family all this time, and then even started standing on his own two feet, so that if and when the time comes, he would be able to support himself if such an occasion arose.

Really modern day Chivalry isn’t it?

She stood by him for all this time, and never once lost hope!

And the two of them together make me want to believe in love and relationships… which in itself is a great feat!

But there was no need for such! One day his father dropped by at the door of my friends house and asked her father for his daughter hand (my friend that is ).

The engagement was a great affair, and the wedding is due September. And I only have the best wishes for the two of them.

May they have a great blessed life!

A few thoughts on Jashn-e-Faiz

Getting any major event done in the city of Karachi nowadays is a big deal, but to be able to get an event done without the banner of MQM, is a feat of a different dimension altogether.

Overall, getting so many people together in the name of Literature is a big deal and on that ground the event was a total success. But I am sure, that much has been written about this since yesterday. I am here to share that I felt yesterday on a personal level.

So the concert begins, but let us all remember people, that this is all happening in the name of Faiz Ahmed Faiz, so a bit of respect is in order. But sadly, it was not to be found.

At the Concert, held under the banner of Faiz Ahmed Faiz

Chanting of all sorts, disrespectful in nature mostly was the norm of the day, and it has to be said that mostly it was happening from the people I thought would least do it. Most of them were people I go to University with, so therefore it was sad on so many levels for me.

Later in the night, some people decided that it is just okay to take off your shoes hold it in your hands and then wave them around.. the idea sickened me to my core, and a lot of screaming and angry protest had to bring them down.

Is it just that so many years of being confined to no entertainment has made us lose our sense of how to behave in these places? Or do we really think that this is all okay?

Food for thought !

A modern day love story!

Did anyone see that movie Love ajj kal? Well consider this post a sequel to that movie. This is not my story, but was shared with my

Love Ajj Kal Source: 3.bp.blogspot.com

by a friend, and happens to be the love story of his brother.. well a pretty unsuccessful love story!

And this is how it goes….

They met online, and talks between them come closer and closer, until love had taken over both of them. The distance melted away, and they started to make their visits frequent….He lived in Karachi, She was in Islamabad!

The love affair lasted for around 8 years. I am not too big on the details.. but I guess that like every relationship, they must have had their ups and down!

But alas! This was not to be! The girl was diagnosed with cancer! And is now counting her final days! The guy at this point decided that he wanted to marry her!

But the girl refused! Probably not wanting to tie the guy down!

Now till this point the story is great!

Here is the modern, insensitive twist!

The guy is getting married in this September to some other girl! He has not met her, but was chosen for him by his family! Continue reading
