Ignorance is Bliss - a new view on this idiom

The most important element because of which universe exists in all its glory is Balance. God has created everything with so much detail, but this fact amazes me that still balance prevails everywhere, in every single creation individually and also collectively. "Ignorance is bliss" - a unique gift from God for his most loved creation but this profound statement holds true only for the world where our intellect can't reach.

Imagine for a second that you could know and see everything which is kept hidden. You can see every germ that surrounds you and every bacteria that is dancing over your belongings. Wouldn't your life turn into something equivalent to hell? You would even become scare of touching anything because of the fear of being ill.

Lets put our imagination little forward. Think what will happen if you know everything about your future. If you get to know that your future is full of misery, you will start worrying about it in present itself, either future won't prevail anymore as you already know about it or future will become bitter part of your present. You must be thinking that what if the future is bright then simply you won't be able to enjoy it to the fullest because suprise and benefit of doubt will soon get over.

God has created everything in balance and that makes this all so beautiful. Even some part of ignorance becomes bliss for you but to understand this view on the bliss you still need knowledge. Afterall life is not a cup of cake.

I should go for an eye test!

If you watch the following images from your seat in front of the computer, Mr. Angry is on the left, and Mrs. Calm is on the right.


Get up from your seat, and move back about eight feet...they switch places!"

Happy Children's Day

Children's Day is celebrated universally on 20th Nov. I personally love being with kids. I find them very cute.. who doesn't?! I like their innocent mischiefs, gentle hands and soft cheeks. Now let me recall and cherish some memories of my childhood.

Mashallah se, people say and I also believe that I was a gifted child. I guess every person on this earth is gifted but when we talk about children.. some are more lucky than others. My ather met with a huge accident but by the grace of my dear God, he survived it. At that time I hadn't even seen this world with my eyes. He always said that I was his good luck charm.. I hope I can live upto his his words and expections. On the contrary, sometimes I think, maybe he is my good luck charm and my mom too :). Mashallah se I was good at studies, extra-curricular activities, debates, drama, dance.. everything except sports =P.. I was also a little shararati(mischievous) in a sense that I was very much stubborn(I still am!). I used to shout, scream and cry alot. I used to ring door bells of my neighbours and then ran out of the scene. I also used to lock their doors from outside.. OMG thats so much fun for every child but then the scoldings that came from my family was not that awesome. I hadn't made any close friends in those years but I guess it worked out in my favor. I excelled in studies and got confidence which brought praises as well as jealousy/criticism too. But there is one thing for sure.. I was hell more innocent than others as anyone could fool me so easily. I guess any good that I am today is all of because of my dear God and then comes my family, specially my mother, pappa and my cousin sisters who have done my upbringing to the finest.

So how little Raheel decribes himself in three words: Intelligent, Creative and Moral. Yaar Now I am 5'6" big young man so I am allowed to blow out my own childhood trumpet. I am still a child at heart and otherwise too =P

Love Test that you don't wanna miss!

Well, I usually don't believe in such things but this one is really incredible. It's a Love Test and is really fantastic... well actually they have pshycologists and computer engineers behind the fantastic algorithm of this test. Just try it once, the results and analyses it showed to me were just perfect... to my amazement! It also shows the influence of names on different people and their astrological chart.

Disclaimer: The results can turn out to be offensive for some people so take the test on your own risk. If you have guts then take it because its just fantabulous.

an incredible reading experience

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is undoubtedly a winner. Little difficult to understand because the writing style is highly philosophical and symbolic.. perfect for my reading taste. The book carries dozens of learnings under the layers of text. Pick up those which are practical or your favorites and it will be easy for you to remember those key learning points. I have always believed that whatever God decides for you is for your own best, the only thing to call for help and listen to him - "when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." The lessons learnt in addition to the one described are numerous.. focus, determination, understanding and analyzing situations, learn from nature, loving HIM the most, lessons are endless, so the task of listing 'em all is kinda impossible. This book is such that whenever you'll flip and read through its pages, you will learn something new than before for sure!

So what did you learn from this awe-inspiring book? If you haven't read it then go and fetch a copy today, I bet, you won't regret!

Indian Public is insanely filled with insanity, maybe because of sanitary problems. Beware this title is very long duh!

Dus ke Dus le gaye dil, although the title sounds pretty cheap but the contestants are from Indian Idol and Fame Gurukul, playing their part for a noble cause which is collecting funds through public votes for Indian Earthquake relief efforts. By now, you should have known that I am a sucker for these musical indian reality shows.. maybe because I am a big reality tv buff and great hindi music fan. If you 'confused desis' act as if hindi music isn't that cool or worth listening then losers phleeazze stop faking it! But during all these shows, the only thing which makes me extremely angry and disappointed is the indian public. Seriously they don't know how to respect their own talent.

Today Aditi Paul was voted out of the show.. shit! I can't see all this happen. People, Mona and Aditi were the only two potential contestants and later Rahul Saxena also joined the league. How can one be voted out despite being a singer of such high callibre.. and at such an early stage?! Utterly disgusting. She was so upset with the result that when she was asked to sing her favorite song “Piya Tere Karan Karan” once more before departing, she decided to sing it only for her friends/fellow contestants, rather than the voters of India!! Very wise move.. I appreciate it, you did it right! Any celebrity who says that what ever they are is because of public, it is a white lie and all bullshit.. you have achieved all this only because of your talent. The song rendered by her was flawless. If you still don't understand how I feel about this vote out then read this.

Atleast Mona is safe.. relieved. Infact, as this show is telecasted one week late in pk so I also know that Mona is in top 3. Yaay!! I am so happiee. Mommiee dear, I am in love!!

PS: I hope you know who Mona Bhatt is, if not go through the archives.

PSS: I went to my old CA school today. Got a very well response from everyone in that white uniform.. haye I so very much wala hate it, but I preferred not to talk much.. partly because I was in hurry and those people are really very boring =S. This Nova pink colored styling gel smells too good. I can sniff it for hours but I don't wanna go insane and become addicted =P

Me-era = Mad Cow

This post is not for foreign readers. Sorrie but you can still go through the archives.

I sometimes wonder why our lollywood actress are such idiots. Amongst them the dumb-est, stupid-est and everybadthing-est is Meera, the diva of paindoo english. She went to India and all the gossip hoo-haa followed her. She came back to Pakistan with tons of negative publicity and a fatwa in her kitty. Lets analyse what her pea-sized mind contains.

I was watching Aamanna's favorite 'Begum Nawazish Ali' - eid special; I know he will kill me for this statement. S/he/whateva(referred to the hijra host) invited the great poet Ahmed Faraz on the show and the second guest was queen of dumbs herself - yes you guessed it rite - Meera jee. Yes according to Meera, all of the bollywood stars including Shahrukh Khan calls her Meera jee. Shahrukh Khan respects her very much - hey I ain't saying this, it is a Meera jee's own quote.
Her quote, try to imagine her and her accent: "Main bharat gayi wahan sab se mili.. yash chapra, sanjay dutt, sohail khan unke bhai saleman khan, preity zinta.. shahrakh khan, sab itna raspact(she means respect) deite hain sab kehte hai muje meera JEE. Main kahti hoon ke ab muje sirf meera kahein nahi lekin woh toh meera Jee meera JEE, badi izzat dete hain kehte hain we rally(really) raspact you." Yeh my foot I know for which act Shahrukh respects her, gotcha! And the best part Rani Mukherjee is her best friend.. kill me!

While she was on that me-me-me-and-only-me-era ride and was busy in blowing her own phata huwa trumphet, the hijra asked Ahmed Faraz about national hereos. She interrupted Faraz Saheb and this is what she said: "Hamarey yehan bhi barey achey national hereos hain.. Shan hai Moammar hai yeh bhi ache hero hain" and Ahmed Faraz passed sarcasm on her: "Begum sahiba thorey unche level ki baat kar rahi hain." And I fell down laughing on the floor =p

The nonsense is not over yet. She asked Ahmed Faraz to write a TV Serial or Film for her prodcution house. Bhai itne barey shair ko bilkul corner kardia. Kehti hai mein apki bohat badi fan hoon, muje aap se arsey se milna tha aur itna bhi nahi pata ke he is not a writer but a poet.

Conclusion: Meera's head is bilkul khaali.. no asraat of anything.

*I want aspirins*

Dishum Dishum

Once, Newton came to Pakistan and watched a few Lollywood movies that had his head spinning. He was convinced that all his logic and laws in physics were just a huge pile of junk and apologized for everything he had done.

In the movies of Sultan Rahi(a punjabi actor), Newton was confused to such an extent that he went paranoid. Here are a few scenes

1) Sultan Rahi has a Brain Tumor which, according to the doctors can't be cured and his death is imminent. In one of the fights, our great Sultan Rahi is shot in the head. To everybody's surprise, the bullet passes through his ears taking away the tumor along with it and he is cured!

Long Live Sultan Rahi!

2) In another movie, Sultan Rahi is confronted with 3 gangsters. Sultan Rahi has a gun but unfortunately only one bullet and a knife. Guess, what he does? He throws the knife at the middle gangster? & shoots the bullet towards the knife. The knife cuts the bullet into 2 pieces, which kills both the gangsters on each side of the middle gangster & the knife kills the middle one.

3) Sultan Rahi is chased by a gangster. Sultan Rahi has a revolver but no bullets in it. Guess what he does. Nah? Not even in your remotest imaginations. He waits for the gangster to shoot. As soon as the gangster shoots,Sultan Rahi opens the bullet compartment of his revolver and catches the bullet. Then, he closes the bullet compartment and fires his gun.Bang... the gangster dies...

This was too much for our Newton to take! He was completely shaken and decided to go back. But he happened to see another movie for one last time, and thought that at least one movie would follow his theory of physics. The whole movie goes fine and Newton is happy that all in the world hasn't changed. Oops, not so fast!

The 'climax' finally arrives.

Sultan Rahi gets to know that the villain is on the other side of a very high wall. So high that Sultan Rahi can't jump even if he tries like one of those superman techniques that our heroes normally use. Sultan Rahi has to desperately kill the villain because it's the climax. (Newton dada is smiling since it is virtually impossible?) Sultan Rahi suddenly pulls two guns from his pockets. He throws one gun in the air and when the gun has reached above the height of the wall, he uses the second gun and shoots at the trigger of the first gun in air. The first gun fires off and the villain is dead.

Newton commits suicide...

I am back!!

Okay, if you were thinking what happened to me and why I wasn't blogging for few days then let me tell you that I am still ALIVE by grace of God. But my computer was sick so I couldn't help it. Now I am back and will be at this url as usual; yo man keep tuned in!

PS: I hope someday spectacles will also feature ringtones because I put them here and there and then finding it becomes a tough job. I was wrong, cellphones aren't that hard to find when you have forgotten it somewhere near because they have cute ringtones like hello 123 hello(this is the one activated on my cell.. that lady's voice is so yum, lolz just kidding!).

Me, myself, I and Eid

Okay, so yet another eid passed away. As usual it was boring and blank as there aren't not much of my relatives living in karachi and obviously the earthquake incident. The worst part is when you have sweets, nimco and the unhealthiest chips lying in your house, you can't resist. I ate so much that now I am regretting. Obviously it will give me some extra kilos, sore throat and sinus attack too. Duh!!

The only thing I liked about this Eid was that Geo TV and Ary Digital Channel did a great job by celebrating this eid with earthquake victims especially kids. Those celebrities atleast succeeded in bringing smiles over the faces of innocent kids by playing, singing and giving them eidi/gifts. Kudos to you!!

And remember the work ain't over yet, Keep Donating!!

Makeover

I personally don't like changes which involve risks like a bad hair cut. But I finally gathered courage to get a new hairstyle because I knew it couldn't get worst than my previous one. I got a scissor cut, then came the specs after and eye test and I lost few pounds too so you can see it is a complete makeover.

Now it was testing time. I went to my self development class. As soon as I entered the building, people who were walking, stopped and stared at me. It was extremely funny to see people turning back to see me because they thought as if a new person has come. I got plenty of nice comments because I guess everyone had become so bored of seeing my same static stupid look(I call SSS look). But the shocking part was everyone on net thought that I looked like a geek. I knew that it would happen because if a person is getting a pic of himself, it won't turn out being great in any way - I hate Samsung X-600. Secondly, I ain't photogenic.

PS: the hanging problem which my blog suffered has been repaired. This post is also updated. Have fun!

Some comments:
Maria said: "You look like a total geek!! lolz"
Green Head said: "This is what you look like on a good hair day?!.. lolz!!"
Kamran said: "You seem a little different today than you normally do"

PSS: I am neither chinese, japanese nor korean. yeh sab camera ki badmashi hai!!(Its all camera's fault - for my firangi/foreign readers) =p
