By now i assume you all have had heard about Malala. Our brave little girl, who stood up against something we all were never able to. So i won't go into detail about what happened to her. I just wanted to express a few words for her, i wish i could go and tell her these words myself and as i can't i will just write them down here.
   Dear Malala, 
I have no words to describe how brave you are, no words indeed. You are a true inspiration my dear, ever since that tragic day i heard about you, i have been praying and praying that you make a healthy recovery, that you get up and walk out of that hospital and show those animals that Allah is on your side and that he will always be. Whenever i hesitate to go to school, i realise that i am ungrateful, thank you for making me realise that. You know whenever i go to school, i think about you and all the other girls being denied education. I think of all them and realise how lucky i am that i am being sent to a wonderful school and have been given access to education. I hope one day no girl is denied education ever. Malala, your name means ''Grief stricken'', and without a doubt you have left the whole wide world grief stricken. Malala i can't promise to avenge the attack on you, but i will try to avenge it, if not by weapons by education. 
Get well soon.
A fellow student.

Scarred for life.

'I remember when we were kids, we did not have to worry about the city conditions at all.'
My mum's words the other day. 
I have been hearing stories about how peaceful our country was, yes occasionally there would be some disturbance here and there but nothing like it is nowadays. Our parents grew up in a peaceful environment, those people creating all the havoc grew up in a peaceful environment. So my question is: Do they have something against all the kids growing up? Don't they want us to grow up in peaceful environment?
I am only a teenager, i can't even drive yet, but i have seen such things happening that my parents had not seen when they were growing up. They pity our generation. 
I was about 5 when i had heard what happened in the States, the news channels kept telling us that a war has been declared. And honestly after that all i remember is destruction. 
If the West hates Muslims, okay fine go on hating Muslims. Don't hate on Islam. Don't hate on our Prophet (P.B.U.H). Don't insult our faith. It hurts. They are saying don't let the actions of those four people represent the States, then why do you think those few bad apples represent Islam in anyway? 
What hurts more is that my countrymen who are apparently 'expressing their love' for my Prophet have completely forgotten what he stood for. He stood for Peace, for humanity, for love. Don't do this, you are in a way also insulting him by going against what he stood for.
Please pray for Pakistan, for Humanity, for peace, for all those people insulting our Prophet and our religion, because that is what our Prophet (P.B.U.H) would had done, as there is nothing more powerful then prayers and no one more merciful than Allah.
And Youtube take down that video, it would mean the world to everyone. 
Thank you.

I am Pakistan.

I am known as a terrorist state but my soldiers are working with the UN to help keep peace, yes i am Pakistan. Perhaps not the best country in sports but all the official equipment for the Olympics and the world cups are from one of town also known as Sialkot, i am Pakistan. The first computer virus was first created in Pakistan by two brothers called Brain. We had the first youngest Microsoft expert that is our very own Arfa Karim. We have produced one of the Best cricketers, hockey players and squash players despite lacking sports facilities. We have excellent quality cotton, it's something to be proud of when you go abroad and see the label at the back and it says Made in Pakistan. We have gotten through dictators, cruel rulers etc. We have survived 65 years people, when it was predicted we wouldn't even last 5.
We are a nuclear state, we are a stubborn state, we may fight among ourselves but lay a damn finger on our country we will rip you apart.
And i am proud to say that yes i am Pakistan.
Happy Independence day! :)

Obsessed Much?

I had a dream.
It was the best dream ever. I was packing my suitcase, and has heading off to France for the Summer! 
(sigh) If only this dream would come true! And maybe one day it will? Can i get a Ameen? And an Insha Allah please? :P
Question: Have you ever been to France?
I have never been to France, heck i have never stepped outside of the Pakistani border. I would totally love to go to France.. 
When i graduate from SJC in a few months, i am enrolling for French language lessons at the Alliance. I already know a few French words, thanks to: My Dad, English to French Dictionary and Google Translator! But i'd probably would need a really big suitcase to stuff all my clothes i took from here and the clothes i would get from there! And a good camera of course would be a must!  
Sigh, i sure dream a lot! Maybe one day i will go to France, who knows.. 
A girl can dream right?

Big Miracle.

I finally saw the movie Big Miracle, and i don't know what i was waiting for? I mean why didn't I watch it as soon as it was released? Totally loved the whole plot and the fact that it was based on a true story just made my heart ache! Like finally the Americans did something good in my eyes!
The movie is based on rescuing whales and people coming together to help them, it just shows how this cruel world of ours is functioning because there are good people out there somewhere. I have been quiet fond of whales since the fact that a baby whale had washed up at a beach in my country and my father had taken me there to see it. It was bigger then our house! I truly think whales are just magnificent. I mean all the God made creatures are, and some people just tend to ignore them because they can't do anything for them. Just imagine if you help an animal who can't just straight out tell you they are in pain, how much happy Allah will be with you?
The movie was so full of emotion i truly do not know i how kept my composure. When that baby whale died hours before the big rescue, it was heart breaking i was literally praying that please God let the others survive at least. I just wanted to jump inside the screen and help out to, i wanted to be there as well but since it had happened almost a decade before i was born, i probably wouldn't had been a big help considering i was not alive back then...
Oh well a great movie over all, please watch it, if you have not seen it already. It really makes one appreciate  nature.

Mango Season

It's summer. Which can only mean one thing: Mangoes. As soon as June begins crates of mangoes start arriving from different relatives of mine. Half of the refrigerator is filled with them and the smell drives me mad.
Honestly i hate mangoes. They make me sick and just looking at them makes me want to gag. I am very anti-mangoes. Scratch that i am anti-fruits. I can not stand mangoes specially. If i accidentally touch a mango, you will most probably find me in the washroom scrubbing my hands. My lets say 'mango fear' has decreased a little as once upon a time i couldn't even stand in the same room where a mango would be.
Some of you will say that i hate mangoes because i have never tried them. Wrong. I once tasted it. I spent the whole hour gagging and cleaning my tongue.
And as if everyone wants to torture me they keep bringing freaking mangoes!
Questions: Does any of you like/love mangoes?

Hi! I know i have not posted in like weeks! My laptop's motherboard got fried and has gone to get fixed.. So yeah. Very unlucky year for me i should say!
Well hope everyone is doing great! :D
And check out this funny video made by someone.
P.s. some of it is in Sindhi don't get confused with Punjabi!
It's very funny and if any one needs translations i am happy to help!

Waderai ka Beta

Okay bye! i will try to post more often!! :D

I Love You Mum!

 It was one of those nights where she screamed her lungs out in her sleep in the middle of the night, thrashing in her bed trying to get out of the dream. Stuck in that horrible nightmare. She screams and screams no one seems to hear her. Suddenly two warm arms hold her firmly and whispers to her, pulling her out of the dream she thought she'd never be able to escape. 
'Shh, everything will be Okay. Everything IS okay.' But her sobs continue, she knows subconsciously that she is there but is unable to really get back to reality. 'Come on now recite the Kalma and everything will be alright.'  Her warm embrace brings her out of the nightmare, her advice helps her sleep peacefully and her presence makes her stronger. 
And that is my mother, she is always there for me even when i have my totally unexpected mood swings and despite my occasional teen tantrums. 
Thank you mum for everything, for always being there. And that i love you to bits even when my attitude stinks. 
I truly do not know where i will be if i did not have you! <3

Nothing tastes better than sweet FREEDOM!

Hello everyone, how you all doing?
My exams are OVER for good for now...!! I feel like a bird now, free to do anything i like and want! These last couple of weeks have been hectic! Seriously i have worked by butt off and i really hope my result is actually good this time. In my preliminaries i got a fudging B (Imagine the horror, stupid high achieving family), so yeah got a big lecture from my parents AND siblings about it.. I really hope i get an A+ not even a simple and sweet A. You ask why? Go to my parents.
Well enough about exams, they are OVER! It's just i have not opened Blogger for what a few weeks and zap its changed? I am not sure what to think about these changes...
So yeah it's MAY! Which means in simple Mahnoor Shah vocabulary that a REALLY long Friday before the two month weekend! I know some of you may find it lame but i kind of like say random silly stuff like that.
So any Summer plans?
i thought i had plans until the summer camp i had attended last year lowered the fudging age limit and now i can not go to that and they added a new course even that i so want to take...
Oh btw i might be changing my blog name soon... I thought i might change it when i am not a teen anymore but i feel like it... Should I?
And i have many stories to share i just hope i will be not lazy and actually post them!
Hope to post soon! :)

I don't know what to feel anymore..

A siren goes off somewhere and suddenly everyone is rushing out of the building, shouting and crying for their loved ones.. Someone grabs me from my arm and drags me along with them, stunned for awhile i didn't realise what was happening until we are out of the building, than i feel it... And it happens in seconds but what feels like years i see my world come tumbling down, i turn to face the crowd to search for my friend who knows me better then i know myself to find comfort in his strong arms but he is no where to be seen..

So yeah today 28 countries got a tsunami warning because of an earthquake in Indonesia of 8.9 magnitude, i feel  sort of depressed, first the Siachin avalanche where 100+ of our soldiers are stuck and now this. Hopefully the tsunami will die in the sea only.. Yes i am scared, i don't want to die just yet hell i haven't even appeared for my board yet, i don't want anyone to die like this..

I think we should pray for everyone to stay safe and not just only our country or our family but all those countries which are in danger of this disaster, then maybe Allah will listen to that one lucky person's prayers and we all will be safe..

Let the Hunger Games Begin!!

So today i FINALLY got to see The Hunger Games! I must say they chose the cast perfectly.. From Katniss to all the way till the freaky President Snow. I was never a big fan of Peeta in the books, but i think Josh Hutcherson did a really good job in playing Peeta and i sort of like him (Peeta) now, Jennifer Lawrence for Katniss? Perfect! Liam Hemsworth for Gale? Perfect, i always sort of loved both of them, hehehe. 
Even though the movie lacked those memories of Katniss about Prim and Gale back home in district 12 and her thoughts weren't exactly given out to the audience.. But overall i loved the movie! 
After reading and now watching the Hunger games i wish i could shoot like Katniss.. And yes i admit whenever i read any book from the trilogy, i get nightmares because i am in the games as well..
May the odds be ever in your favour!

Sukina The girl who mourned fictional characters

In the dark room she sat with no one to keep her company. Only her shadow and her loud heartbeat and sometimes a sob.. Sometimes someone would peep in from the door and call out her name.
'Leave me alone!'
And the door would be closed again, this time she wouldn't even hear her loud heartbeat. Feeling lonelier than ever she sat, finally sleep seemed to come to her but her sister struggling to open the bedroom window mad her alert. Why didn't her sister just use the UNLOCKED door instead? She wondered.. Seeing that her sister had tossed a parcel inside the room tied to the string of an oddly shaped balloon, she wanted to ignore it but curiosity got the better of her she got up switched on the lights burning her eyes with the bright lights and took the parcel in her hand, the balloon was in the shape on owl. Opening the parcel she found a letter and a book. The letter was in her sister's hand writing and it went a little like this:

   Dear Miss Sukina Shah,
I have been informed by a very considerate relative of yours that you have not taken well to my demise, I suggest you get yourself some chocolate frogs and read my own personal copy of the tales of Beedle the Bard. And as for my demise all i can say is that life is something lent to us humans and eventually like all borrowed things has to be returned to the rightful owner.
And your sister would like me to tell you to and i quote "To get back to your senses."
                                                      Your's truly
                                                       Albus Dumbledore.

Smiling, Sukina put the note and the book in her shelf, and came out of the room at last and found everyone waiting for her. From that time onward everyone knew how to handle Sukina when her favourite characters in a novel died.

P.S I have decided to occasionally write about Sukina, a girl basically who mourns for her for her favourite character in a book like she is mourning for her loved one and all other really crazy things she does. I named her Sukina because i am in love with this name and Shah as her last name because i didn't feel like being creative and gave her my last name.
P.P.S i know the tales of the beedle the bard was published like years after harry potter and the half blood prince but still i sort of went for this only! Hope you like this little piece..

Ugh summer is back, I do not like summers. I consider myself to be more of a winter person. Stupid summer, summer means lots of sweating (ughh), gola gandas (yum?), load shedding (sometimes), sun burns and occasionally tanned to such an extent your mother tell you that only feature visible on the face is the eyes, even though summers mean flowers and lots of them everywhere but still i find summer to have no smell at all..
Whereas winter, ahh they smell so good! They small of burnt charcoal and wood, the soft cozy blankets, and what not?
I hate Summers but its here, time to keep my loving sweaters, shawls, gloves etc inside to take out clothes that are summer appropriate.. :/
Happy summers blahh :P

And the Oscar goes to...

Just wanted to congratulate Sharmeen Obaid Chinoey for her achievement!! People like her really show the world how just AWESOME we Pakistanis are, am i right? Ofcourse i am!
And honestly i was bursting with pride when i saw her receive it! And then give that speech! Is it just me or was Sandra Bullock moved to tears?
Even the documentary was about the acid throwing accidents happening in our society and so not portraying the good side of Pakistan, but nonetheless made by a Pakistani.

The Humsafar tragedy

Today 4th of February 2012 all Pakistani women and some men if i am not mistaken, were desperately waiting for the 20th episode of the very famous drama by the title Humsafar. Yes they showed the previous episode of the show, people across Pakistan are outraged! How can they do this? HOW?
Why did they put us through this torture? why? People across the country are asking this question.
But according to the official Humsafar Fan page they had a technical fault that is why aired the previous episode, i say Bull everything. (sigh) Yes, i am heart broken.
Some funny tweets i came across during the outrage that went on because of episode 19 being repeated:

  • Technical Problems ki zemedari Taliban ne kabool karli- Rehman Malik :P ROFL  ( Trans: Taliban accepts the responsibility of the technical problem - Rehman Malik)
  • Wives daughters sisters mothers grandmas -general female population suffers severe withdrawal symptoms of missed "Humsafar" dose.
  • Guys, if she says she's ditching Humsafar to talk to you; DON'T FALL FOR IT AND PROPOSE! It's a repeat episode
  • People crying over how they are showing last weeks #Humsafar episode. "Sab Zardari ki galti he" #AveragePakiStatement. (yes blame the president!)
And believe me i could go on and on.. You know what the worst part was? The official page posting all new episode of Humsafar do NOT miss it!  Oh and some funny pictures to go along as well of the 'tragedy'.

Oh and Happy Eid ul Milad un Nabi!

Saying goodbye to another year!

So i just noticed that my first 2012 post was well a kind of sad one, you know about the genius girl's death and all. So yeah about 2011 it had it's ups and down. Highlights and low lights of my life in 2011.
2011 Highs:
  1. I got to go to summer school in my dream university!
  2. Went out of Sindh for the first time (yay me!)
  3. My hard work paid off i got into Science ( as my school is crazy and well they wont give you marks even though your exam went super great and they wont give science as well unless you get more then 75% in the all subjects)
  4. The final Harry Potter premier! :D
2011 lows:
  1. Dad had a heart attack.
  2. Grandma died.
  3. I got Dengue and Jaundice at the same time! (lucky me)
  4. No more Harry Potter movies or books.. :(
Well that's well my 2011 and i hope that 2012 will be way better, don't we all?
I do not have any new year's resolutions this year, as i have got so many things to do like study for preliminary exams, study for board, plan the farewell for the graduating seniors, get an A? Ameen. (hahah)
Well i know what to do when 2012 ends get the 2012 movie dvd, watch it and laugh.  Maybe after my exams i will most probably start video editing! 
Total random and out of nowhere question: How do you know its actual love not your heart's way of telling you it's constipated.. Hahaha never mind don't answer that.. 

P.s i just realised that i had not said a good bye to 2011 as i was wondering where the hell are fire works because in Islamabad i spent my new year's eve looking for a open restaurant and fireworks. I missed Karachi, hehe.
2011 Best Highlight.

The pride of Pakistan: Arfa Karim

She was the youngest Microsoft certified professional and held that title from 2004-2008. She was the pride of our country and will always be remembered.  She suffered from cardiac arrest after an epileptic seizure in December and has been under hospitalization ever since, today she passed away. It is a big loss for the country but also for those parents who were extremely proud of their brilliant daughter. May her soul rest in peace and may she find a place in heaven, ameen.
