Celebrating the colours of Pakistan: The 2nd annual Pakistan Blog awards!

Okay, so I had thought of writing a little review on these awards but apparently I cannot remember anything after and before the time the one and only Imran Khan came through the doors of the hall, gracing us with his presence.  I apparently was star struck and grinning like a fool but then again who was not? Any Blogger there would know what I went through.
Well back to the awards, big and hearty congratulations to all the winners.  And those who did not win well there is always a next time. Yes, Maryam Aftab my sister said to nominate yourself next year even, you never know *wink*
A Sindhi band from the interior played their tunes with their complicated instruments never letting the audience get bored with their magically melodies, little kids preformed representing various parts and colours of Pakistan looking absolutely adorable, a comedian in the end whose name was something with an ‘S’? And then of course *swoon* Imran Khan.
So any blogger who might have had been there? If so hope you enjoyed, won etc there.
Oh a note to that person who has been haunting my blog for a while, I will NEVER use proof read so yeah go hit your head on the wall.

Poet's Corner!

The bells ring from the hilltop
There she goes with her golden locks
The bells ring once again
As if welcoming her.
Can someone tell her
That she looks like an angel
Finding a way back to the heaven?

So yeah hope you guys like it!

Out of the blue.

I had been running in circles,
They seemed to never end.
But i took charge, and
Now i am walking ahead.

Stronger then you will ever be.
And while i go, you can watch.

Reasons why God did not make me British.

Well i have lived happy 15 years as a Pakistani and hopefully many more years as one (a Paki i mean).. But I just can not deny the fact that I would had loved to be British at some point.. I mean come on!! British accents are just mind blowing. 

So a few years ago my Dad told me that my Dad's grandfather had ''married'' someone in Old Brit. while studying law there... (hmmmm why do everyone go there for law??) But did not tell his father until he was forced by his father to marry a local Pakistani woman from their society.. (Problem with my family, Land lords with big cars and awesome Gothic houses. Come to think of it i do not mind). 

So yeah technically that sort of gave birth to of me day dreaming of well being a Brit. When today in our History books, i read about the British coming to the subcontinent and being enemies etc etc, come on how can they be enemies? They introduced the bit of education here, didn't they? While the Moguls were busy singing.. (No offence to the Moguls, love their culture) And come on have you heard them talk? Yeah so as you might have guessed by now i am absolutely in love with Brits, for reasons i do not even understand.. Or maybe i do..

So there is a little list i made about why i am not British..
  1. Being British means having that amazing accent, so i would have apparently never stop talking. So just to keep me from talking 24/7 God did not make me British.
  2. Most of my favourite celebrities are well British, so i would be forever stalking them. So just keep me busy with real stuff i am not a Brit.
  3. I heard England has winter like most of the year, i love winters hardly winter here so i would spend most of my time outside then inside the house, so just to keep in the house i guess?
  4. I heard they have amazing school uniforms there... I would apparently never change out of my uniform and my mum hates it when i do not change ASAP after school.. So yeah thats why!
  5. I would keep running into the wall between platform number 10 and platform number 9 to reach platform number 9 and 3/4 every September 1st..
  6. And if i saw an old man with a big white beard i would go and hug him thinking he's Dumbledore.. 
Yeah so that's why i think i am not a Brit... 
Come to think of it if i was a Brit and well did all the things i mentioned above i would be sent to an asylum. xD

I am from.. Narnia.

Just a crazy fan girl, who longs to see her favourite band in her country performing live or maybe coming on T.V once in awhile. But no she can not, why is that so? Because she is from Narnia, yes Narnia!
No channel that shows her the love of her life airs in Narnia, she goes to this video site to view them preforming but ahh the stupid message that says ''You can not view this because it is not available in your country'' Why? Because she lives in Narnia!
So people this is the story of well a Narnian!
I am a Narnian longing to see 1D in Narnia...ermm Pakistan!
Personally i think 1D should come here as Zayn Malik is of Pakistani descent.. You know to meet his family and well preform...
So well I am from... Narnia!

The Apple Man

Today as i came back from school, crept into my brother's room and played with his fish. He told me that Steve Jobs expired, truly sad to hear. He was a man of vision, he made apple into more then just a fruit or the apple that fell on Newton to torture science students all over the world.
Random thought: Will iphone or ipad get any less expensive so i can finally afford it, you know in the loving memory of S.J...

Fathers, what will we do without them?

Today i heard the most heartbreaking news, it was about my friend's father who passed away. He had a heart attack and did not survive. It is just so weird, she used to be the most lively person among us, always laughing always happy but today her world shattered into tiny pieces. She lost her father.
Fathers are a blessing of God just like mothers are. I don't know what i would do if God forbid i lost mine. A daughter is always a daddy's girl, when your mother does not agree you run to your father. Your mother refuses to pay for your stupid requests, you simply make the puppy dog face at your dad and you have that really stupid thing you think you want at that time.
Fathers are no less the most feared person in the house, yet we children love our fathers, because they support us, they pamper us, they are our wall, they provide protection and hear what you have to say about a certain situation with amusement.
The greatest gift i ever had. Came from God; I him Dad.-Author unknown
My prayers are with my friend, her family and with them who have lost their fathers, because in my opinion they are very strong to live without one, for i would be lost without mine.
May Allah rest his soul in peace, ameen.

Wishing for rain as she stood in the Desert

''Please.." She murmured, "Please come back!!" She shouted this time. And all that answered back was the silence... Finally realising that no one is listening. He didn't care.. He left me here, he didn't call.
Her thoughts buzzing inside her head, were driving her crazy.. It was like her world would fall apart and she would have nothing but the darkness that would eat her up.
The room was dark, she didn't feel the need to turn on the lights. Curled up on the floor she sat, wishing that he would show up just once and explain to her that what had she done wrong? In her life she had been abandoned by almost everyone she loved, they left her either by just choosing to leave or it was God who took them away. She had no one to turn to anymore. And she desperately longed for to see her family, to see him. She knew no one would return to her, but she kept on wishing that they just show her their loving faces and smiles and then maybe she would be able to live her life more lively. But then it was like wishing for rain as she stood in the Desert.

Hope you liked this little story i wrote, it is something that i just thought up of in the middle of well listening to my Ipod and wanted it to write it somewhere.. And well I wrote it here!

We are the victims NOT the cause of Terrorism

It as a day unlike any other, children got ready for school, parents rushing them to hurry up as they will get late if they don't leave ASAP. Then suddenly in the area of D.H.A lives of innocent school going children and their parents lives were shaken by a blast, that no one even thought someone would try to do in a resident/school area.
I was leaving for my school at that time my school being in Sadar i did not know about the blast until a teacher of mine told us in class, all day the tension was at its peak and all kept wondering our cousins, brother and sisters who go that side were safe. After school when i reached home, saw my mom watching the T.V and all i could see on the television of mine was wrecked cars, blown up windows, people crying, ambulances everywhere, police and rangers near the S.P's house, the S.P angry then ever and then later i saw a little cat being carried by a firefighter out of the house.. With a leg missing.. And how could i even explain about the children??
They did not show much about them but news travels fast in our beloved city.
a neighbor of mine who goes to a school which is right next to the place of the blast reported that their school was completely vandalized. Another neighbor of mine said while taking her 5 year old daughter back to the house when heard of the blast saw bodies laying all over the place.. Just sad.
In Pakistan almost EVERYDAY innocent lives are lost by the barbarians called terrorists, everyday a family loses one of their members, a day i don't think passes without a child becoming an orphan or wife becoming a widow. People in other countries mourn and never forgt when one blast or attack occurs in their country, but here in Pakistan where people die of these events on a daily basis what about them?
People all over the world call us terrorists, but have you ever thought that we Pakistanis' are one of the main victims in this war of and against terrorism? Don't we have innocent children and families? Don't we deserve to be happy and safe?
This event that occurred today has left me very sad and angry at the same time. But i am not losing hope for my country yet because i believe every dark tunnel opens to the broad day light.
And i would like people to pray for those children and parents who lost their lives today and for the severely injured.

The lows of being a teen.

Its a weird feeling that erupts in my chest, making me feel sad and yet it gives me extremely great pleasure, it hurts but is also sweet. Maybe i am a masochistic or just plain crazy. I do not know why and i think i know why, i am torn.
These weird feelings are said to be a part of being a teen, if this is being called a ''teenager'' i am not sure i want to be one anymore. Get away from it all become small once again or maybe just grow old with white hair.
Being a Teen is not easy in this world of ours, those people who you love the most misunderstand you. The many sitcoms you watch never helps to dull those crazy feelings but yes they certainly add more misery to your feelings and at the same time get you away from it all for those 43 minutes.
We teens are just trying to make a place for ourselves in this world, we dream of getting swept of our feet, to break free of the invisible chains tied to us, find a prince or nowadays a vampire or in some cases a Chuck Bass. This what every girl wants. People complain that teenagers sleep A LOT, and my theory about us lazy sleepy teens becomes quite clear in the quotation of my favourite character, Albus Dumledore: 
For in dreams we enter a world which is entirely ours.
That is why we tend to sleep a lot, to enter a world which is ours and no one can take it away from us.
Teenagers are the most misunderstood people, but then again we all have to pass a phase like that, don't we?During one's teen years they go through different stages, e.g
1) the hard working happy teen
2)the i don't care about work that much but still happy teen
3) the still don't care and slightly happy teen
4) the screw work but happy teen
5) the Gothic teen
6) the emos
7) the i am back to my senses and happy teen.
But some strong willed teens usually don't go through all these phases. So i guess that's it of me going on and on about a teen in the low moments. :)

Nosy People, you find them EVERYWHERE.

People these days really need to mind their own business. If you do not like something let it be for God's Sake! Or if you can not, try to at least be nice when upfront? Is it too hard or what?
I have recently come across such a person who being very rude and moody at times which is nerve wrecking, You do not talk to me in person EVER and only on the net, obviously you do not think i am a normal girl as i do not pretend to be fake and put make up on my face and talk like a total stupid person like all the other girls you know and just because i like Harry Potter, doesn't give you the right to go around being a jerk.
Yeah so nosy People you will find them everywhere from your cousins you hardly talk to to your annoying maid who likes listening and interfering in your private conversations.
I keep wondering why do they do that? Is it boredom? Curiosity? Jealousy? Cockiness? Or they secret agents trying to know everyone's life?
I don't mind you commenting on my FB statuses but i would really like it if you kept it to yourself if you don't like it? ( a message to that person, and yes i know that person would probably won't be reading this cause well he is not a blogger.. I hope..)

Celebrating a Milestone in the Life of 10 truly amazing teachers.

Today at St. Joseph's Convent Golden jubilee of two great teachers and silver jubilee of 8 and equally great teachers was  celebrated.
Mrs. Aileen Soares ( Maths, Cambridge Sec.)
Mrs. Sabra Siddiqui (Urdu, Cambridge Sec.)
Celebrated their golden jubilee at St. Joseph's, warm words and praises were said in their honour, Ex-students and students showed their love for their respected teachers.
Qoutations such as the following were said to show how great these teachers truly are:
A good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others
 Silver Jubilee of the following teachers was also celebrated, many students know their names for they have inspired many souls and I perhaps am one of those souls who have been greatly inspired by them as for they are the teachers who have taught me the values of life and made me believe that nothing is impossible if one tries hard to achieve that thing.
And those great teachers are:
Ms. Gulnaz Mondengarian ( She was the class teacher of the third grade for 20 years, now teaches the 5th grade since the past 5 years)
Ms. Shirin Afzal (the Sindhi teacher who taught us our first Sindhi Alphabets)
Ms. Nuzhat Sattar ( A Sindhi teacher, well known in the Matric section for her strict yet funny classes)
Ms. Nilofer Minhas ( An Art teacher of the middle section, whose dedication to the subject made students life in SJC colourful as ever.)
Ms. Sikander ( Another Sindhi teacher well known in the Matric section, for her funny dialogues and for never punishing us when we pushed all the limits)
Ms Seema Yousuf (Islamiat teacher, Cambridge Sec.)
Ms. Rose (My fifth grade teacher, who made me cry twice in her class, but nevertheless i believe she is the reason i have a control on my emotions and well the teeny bit confidence i have.)
And the School nurse! Whose name i can not currently remember! And i should as i have gone to her many times myself!
But not only did our school celebrate the Jubilees of teachers but we also appreciated the domestic staff that served us and kept us safe all these 25 years.
