Grey days, blue moments and melancholic times, we all have them. Sorry my peeps out there for such a dejected starting to a fresh post here. But it’s that horrendous chapter of a life which one has to face, struggle through and survive. It is not always about blithe eras, perks of being fortunate and pristine happiness. Besides it is also about the accursed happenings, unwelcomed misfortunes and DAMN FAILURES!Life can take a serious turn within the glimpse of an eye, times can be real hard and enigmatic condition of your inner self becomes nothing but a fear and dejectedness growing stronger and deeper. It is surreal that how every single detail acts against you and you’re just left with the big question mark shouting NOW WHAT?
Emotions so pure, feelings so real, love redefined – Raanjhanaa will melt your heart. A story so enormously packed with all those eminent elements required to create a masterpiece. One will laugh at those punch lines possessing BANARSI accent, will surely enjoy the MASTI of KUNDAN and his clan and shed tears as the story takes some serious edgy turns. Storyline, characters, soundtracks all are just BRAVO…… especially the character of KUNDAN played by DHANUSH has given the spark plus vintage style to the movie. This man has done a wonderful job, from accentuating banarsi accent to delivering some heart touching scenes through remarkable acting skills… simply Dhanush has won hearts of masses. His on screen chemistry with beautiful Sonam Kapoor playing zoya is sizzling. Her elegant style, aggression has beautified the on screen character. Sonam has played the character of a Muslim girl whose mind set takes turns from childhood to adolescence, but on the other hand MAST kundan is still the same…. Crazy and passionate about only love of his life; “Zoya”.Read More »
Writing – it is truly the form of another cathartic art. It is the way to de stress. Creating something through words is always a wonderful experience. Train of thoughts, roller coaster of emotions, deep perceptions, some picturesque sites, inspirations or tiny bulbs of ideas may serve as the main elements to create some innovative piece of writing. And I prefer one’s very own style of writing is the CHEMICAL ‘X’ element to it. A kind of talent which is the source for the production of something novel and unique. Describing feelings and emotions, situations, characterizing personalities, construction of plot, forming articles and the list goes on….. All in one is a single course. For someone it’s a passion, for any other fellow it could be only psychological therapy and for some mate, it’s a job (a tough one)
“and believe me , best pieces are written , only that comes from within ones heart .. without any scheduled timed pressures and restriction of forms .. writing is flow of creativity .. sometimes and for some people its outburst of emotions .. for some its rozi roti .. so for the rozi roti people , they ‘need’ readers ……. Rest are free souls. Amen.”
P.S: Ma’am ANDALEEB a bundle of thanks to you for the discussion we did on this post, I have quoted your comment above. 🙂
Standing across the street and watching the liveliness reflecting from crazy traffic to moving shoppers, feeling the aroma of scrumptious street food in the air, hearing chatters and some FILMI music playing in the background….. It is the ordinary street showing the true essence and glimpse of images that what liveliness of KARACHI is all about.
From dharnas to protests, frequent strikes and aggravation by NA MALOOM AFRAD… my beloved Karachi is dueling on these realms. I read somewhere that Karachi is like that old lady who used to be young once. And I laughed at it…I mean seriously?? Let’s not talk about the dominating political party fiasco or the absurd results of elections. Makes me feel sick talking on these sites. I wonder people have just so much time to castigate every teeny tiny bad happening here. I can’t fathom why so much craziness to create hype? C’mon MAN just come out of that damn box.
But still it’s the city of people who raise hope, who can’t tolerate a single word against “city of lights”, who are persistent on the immense power of DUA. And I believe it’s because of them Karachi is still young. 🙂
I am a firm believer Karachi is still love for all the karachities (true ones). From graffiti to rickshaw shaiery, thalley wali aaloo chat to some unhygienic sugarcane juice, port grand to do darya and our so own SUMANDAR, there’s no place like KARACHI.
INSHA ALLAH things will be better, don’t stop to make dua.
Aik muhabb-e-watan sherey… :*
December has greeted us, as we are welcoming tentative cold breeze of Karachi. Start of December is a portent that “pristine days of being sloth, tossing plus turning into bed, never ending appetite for midnight craving and unlimited hours of facebooking” are going to over. After few more vivacious days,* DRUM ROLL PLEASE*, we’d be carrying school bag straps on our shoulders and wearing most innocent expressions on our faces just more than ready to start a new voyage like a good sailor. 🙂
Yes my cheekooz, “Back to School” phrase is very much clichéd but very perfect here to utilize. As we all know our sessions of university are going to start in January INSHA ALLAH. And once again we all would be following strict routines and tiresome schedule, flapping the pages of books and notes, trying to pay attention at lectures and off course doing assignments. We are following such sporadic routines, I seriously don’t have any idea how would we cope with our new tough routines of tough schools. L
Excited plus nervy at the same time, feeling Goosebumps and butterflies in the stomach, we all have to prepare ourselves for the big school as our future lie on it. Be prepared guys, cause there will be lots of things to vex you around (don’t panic, just kidding). It’s hackneyed to say, “Stick to the banner of hope and confidence people”. I am damn sure on first day, everybody will be little frightened no matter how much everyone pretend that one is perfectly fine. It’s called HUMAN NATURE cheekooz, nothing bizarre about it. Since this post is getting on serious track, let’s talk about “Back to School Shopping”.
Yes my favorite part! Collect your pocket money and head out for a little shopping. Grab some good sneakers, joggers or trainers. Couple of bags and scarves. Some trendy shirts and plain trousers to go with them. Don’t forget sun block which is most essential. J A lucid phenomenon is that, in the start it would be something like “a fish out of water” but by the time INSHA ALLAH things will settle down. It’s a new journey, another ERA to learn, to explore, and to make new friends. And we should all greet it with very wide grins on our faces (smirk is also fine if you can’t have a very wide grin)
A very best of luck to all my cheekooz, May you excel in your respected fields.Ameen.
P.S : word “cheekooz” is for my all lovely jubbly friends. 🙂
Optimistic visions, circumstances which I want to become the reality one day. I dream a country where acrid trench of explosives will be extinct, a placid place where education will get momentum, a nation which would be idealized. You’ll say I am a visionary, but I say that I am not the only one.
Becoming a witness of catastrophes, land of my country is surely sterile from hope. It is like idea is planted in every mind that after every heart scorching tragedy, we have to prepare ourselves for the forthcoming bad news. I feel ashamed to state this bitter truth that media is equivalent responsible for creating this specific mindset. I am not any certified critique and I also appreciate the job of media presenters to deliver news and to sacrifice everything for the sake of this important duty. Media: the pillar of country’s representation, is it their obligation to break news after news about every single bad occurrence in the country. Is it necessary to spice up things just to obtain higher ratings? Ask yourself. From highlighting rape cases to making fun of cabinet members, why they don’t find any cheering moment in our nation, I confess still there are many reasons to feel proud at.
Our outstanding students won the International debating competition amongst students of 125 countries, making their country Proud, making everyone realize how much extraordinary potential is hidden in our generation. And there is only a typical headline about this big event, nothing more. Mostly Morning shows who create tower of babble by conversing on stupid issues, do they completely forget about to appreciate lighter and positive sides of our nation. An aged fourteen kid got first position in test held in Australia, and media give minimum coverage to such shinning stars of our nation. List goes on of achievements but media is busy in making higher TRP’S.
I dream one day dejected clouds would be vanished and a sun rise will mark the new dawn. I dream one day this rising youth will set the examples, will make a history and will bring revolution to our grief stricken nation. One day every kid will become Malala Yousufzai, Ibrahim Shahid, Arfa Kareem and Ali Moeen Nawazish. INSHA ALLAH.
“Mangoes” have become a touchstone for new terminologies. For instance, in many scenes and situations mangoes refer to common people or usual articles. In this pretext If you remember the famous beats of classic song “KEH DENA” by Alamgir whose catchy remake by Canadian artist Kristie Yung have been aired on for last three or four months, is OST (original sound track) of yet another famous PAK Canadian TV series called Mangoes. It’s very aloof in the list of titles I must say. Another exciting novel usage of this fruit name has been observed in promotion of local brands. In the summers of year 2011 a brand name in Karachi called “Mango People” was introduced. This local brand under the yellow banner showcased very youthful t-shirts conveying short but inspiring messages with splash of different colors. In general sense, mango people refer to common people who live common routines and have so much in common! Mango itself is not only a fruit name but its provision of new pristine meanings and exact encoding of some scenes is very bizarre plus true.
