I had been looking forward to this evening for a while now and I had planned to enjoy my heart out. But the reality was it that after every few minutes, my brain took me off for a flight.
The show had its moments no doubt, but after a few minutes I felt like I was drifting away. I was realizing that I am at a very long place, or at least in a place that has nothing to do with Pakistan. The jokes, if had been stated anywhere else in the city, would have resulted in a public lynching. But here we were all sitting together in this auditorium, with all these amazing sponsors and amazingly burger kids and with no worry about being possibly attacked by anyone.
I am a liberal person, but at a point, it got to a place where even I thought that okay this is too much. This is going beyond a certain level. I dont know if I am making any sense here, but I think what struck me the most that day was the distinction that each area and each class can bring to what is acceptable and what is not.
Yesterday, a breakthrough happened… an event took place that was truly significant and that hasn’t been achieved before. The two neighbors, India and Pakistan, signed an agreement making the lives of millions of people significantly easier by relaxing the visa restrictions. This is something that people have been fighting and struggling towards for ages and finally we have it.
But is this a story that has actually been celebrated across the nation? The answer is a flat, big “NO”!
The focus is once more on the blunder that PPP has done… with regards to the Local Body Ordinance. Now I am not saying that it should be ignored. I mean focus on it with all the might you want, but that doesn’t mean that we can ignore, a very historical event that has just happened.
It seems like one big controversy against the Present Government and I am appalled!
Politics is a dirty game, and more than that it is a game that requires wit, cunningness and the recognition of the opportunity when it comes in front of you. Imran Khan, right now, is doing the same, however whether that opportunity is worth the risk is another debate. But there is no doubt that his popularity has today risen to a level where if you are not a Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaaf supporter, you are bound to get some serious lashing and ultimately leading to the conclusion, “Oh that means you are a Zardari supporter”, *SIGH* (But more on PPP later).

In its initial days, there was little buzz regarding this party and the supporters that you would find on the streets were few and far between. His charismatic appeal was still his Cancer hospital and the 1992 World Cup victory. But beyond this, there is little in him that can attest to his leadership qualities.
Founded in the year 1996, the man’s leadership capabilities were being judged by the way he led the team in 1992, and as the only victory to his name, there was little or nothing more to attest to his Political Career. The initial members who joined the party were much in awe of this man. But there was another reason as well, or so is my analysis. Continue reading
People, I have had enough! And I say this with complete seriousness! Because this time I really have had enough!
And let me unabbreviate the word KESC for the lucky people out there in the world who have had never had to suffer the wreath of Karachi Electric Supply Corporation – the K.E.S.C!
After suffering for .. let me count.. no .. actually let me restate myself … after enjoying electricity for a mere 4 hours in 24 hours, that too in bits and pieces as KESC played games with us. The games included giving us the hope that we finally have electricity before turning it off again within half an hour – a cruel joke my friends! Continue reading
Dear Mr. MQM Leaders, both in and outside the country with their British Passport,
My Salutations to you, which are to be followed with a lot of questions, which I hope that you would be able to find time to answer among all the bloody
target killing politics that you have to deal with.
I hope that you would not take any hard feelings towards these and would treat them as nothing more, but the thinking of an idle mind who was stuck at home for 4 days because of the things in the city caused by your
rift with ANP noble plans to rid the city of the terrorist that live in a certain hill in the city! Therefore my first question to you follows the very reasonable question regarding your cause.
- Why have you taken upon yourself to rid the city of these terrorist that live in a certain city?
- Why are you so whiny demanding to the extent of being stubborn, like a 16 year old dumb chick?
- What makes you so special that you think that only, as per your words,
you deserve the urban centers of Sindh deserve the Local Government Ordinance? Continue reading
“Is there a foreign hand involved in these attacks?”
“Can this possibly be an American attack?”
“Is Israel or RAW involved in it?”
“Why did they rush the Chinese out of the base?”
“Is this related to Baluchistan or the fact that the Gwader Port was only handed yesterday to the Chinese?”
The attack on PNS Mehran. Image from:dawn.com
Any major event in Pakistan goes hand in hand with the conspiracies that surround it. The attacks today at the P.A.F base is not indifferent to this rule! Continue reading

Continuing on the thread from tomorrow, let me share with you one of the things that truly help’s me in venting out and as a result calming myself down when I am in shit or when I am feeling shitty or when life all around is generally shitty.
And that magical thing people is writing! I love writing! Did you know that about me! I just love to write! (Note to self: Add this in my About page, which you need to visit ASAP, if you haven’t already)
It’s the sort of thing that helps me pour my heart out! I am good with words and expressing myself in words, and not the spoken kind, people! I mean the kind that comes out from my pen, and now my keyboard!
And I can honestly say nothing helps me more than writing! Continue reading
