why vegetarions?

The question that I asked you yesterday was,
Why people are turning into vegetarions these days?

The answer is quite simple.. because,
IT'S THE BIRD FLU SEASON

and when it will be over then because all the nightmares that KFC brought in our lives with its yummy chicken =s
Poor government that has to force hosts of different shows to eat in front of the camera and face all the humiliation just to tell people that hey weirdos its safe to eat the chicky.. LMAO =P

Soul Patrol gets the high

The white haired guy with an adoring fun personality, Taylor Hicks is crowned with title of American Idol Season 5 and with this Soul Patrol wins.

Finale was rocking.. loved every moment of it. Good music, Great songs, Fun-filled fillers and touching moments, what more can you ask for?! Far better and more creative that the stupid Indian Idol.

Btw Crazy Dave Hoover was rocking, he is the male copy of our own lollywood jumping sleazy cow-queen Saima.

For all desi readers, I ask you the most intellectual question of the century:
MERI BHAINS KO ANDA KYUN MARA?

Social Roundup

Last Sunday, we had to discuss a cartoon in our self-development class for teachers and be cynical about it as we were the black hats.. it was about water and sewerage issue in Pakistan in accordance with Water Day. I was chosen to give presentation in front of 50-60 students. As soon as I started speaking I made every point so humorous that once I end a line the only thing I hear are giggles and laughters. One student commented 'Bilkul theek bandey ko bheja hai' translated as They have chosen the right person for this job =P. Those 3 minutes were so much fun that I can't even tell you. It also helped me to gain back my confidence. I have observed that my vocab is just fading away. I don't have right words anymore and I don't know why. I mean as far as writing is concerned I don't find any difficulty but my communication skills are getting worse day by day. I don't know is it because I have become so much involved in the writing process that I need to rejunevate my presentation skills. I used to be very good in conducting presentations mashallah se but I guess now I need to concentrate a bit more to get to that level again and then improve it more.

Then yesterday one person asked me a question where do you live? I answered his question then he asked me where are you from? Now I just went out of words. I mean this is a tough question to answer. Is there any accurate answer for it? I haven't find one till now. I mean should I tell him my geographical roots or my family roots or my religious roots.. whateva!

Few days ago, I got a very sound and important advice from a stranger but I will Inshallah share it with you all on friday in HOPE blog so mark the day in your calenders.

Everything is so messed up!

Ohh I so hate Star Plus dramas and they are back to drive me insane... duh!! The sound effects, dialouges and all the melodrama.. arghh :@ It is such a pity that after such big break, people have so easily bounced back to see the same improved nonsense. Our elders need to chill serously!! It is so annoying to wake up while listening all this shit uff!!

Life is all boring and sleepy these days. I have noticed that I am feeling terribly weak these days. I can't even stand a wind, now thats alarming! More but only healthy food and less illness.. thatz my motto from now on.

Blogging scene is dead and same is my blog. Now I don't get that high nor I feel like blogging these days. I don't know why is this happening. Is it boredom or lack of time or simply because of less interaction? I haven't started this blog to rant and ramble about my personal life. I found it as a good intellectual, creative and intereactive platfrom but as I said now it seems as if all this is DEAD!! Don't worry I won't be leaving it so easily but guys please wake up!! I should too.. I mean I dont get time to visit other blogs and I so regret this :(

I think that Bloggers.Pakistan is very good initiative.. good luck guys and have a great reading experience.

A sfory I got by e-mail on account of MOTHER'S DAY

After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said I love you but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some timE with you.

The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my Work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie. "What's wrong, are you well," she asked? My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news.

"I thought that it would be pleasant be with you," I responded. "Just the two of us." She thought! About it for a moment, and then said, "I would like that very much."

That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing
the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary.

She smiled from a face that was as radiant as angels. "I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed," she said, as she got into the car. "They can't wait to hear about our meeting". We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Large print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips "It was I who used to have to read the menu when you
were small," she said.

"Then it's time that you relax and let me return the favor," I responded. During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation - nothing extraordinary, but catching up on recent events of each other's life. We talked so much that we missed the movie.

As we arrived at her house later, she said, "I'll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you." I agreed. "How was your dinner date?" asked my wife when I got home. "Very nice. Much more so than I could have imagined" I answered.

A few days later, my mother died of a massive heart attack. It happened so suddenly that I did to do anything for her. Sometime later, I received an envelope with a copy of a restaurant receipt from the same place mother and I had dined. An attached note said: "I paid this bill in advance. I wasn't sure that I could be there; but nevertheless, I paid for two plates - one for you and the other for your wife. You will never know what that night meant for me. I love you, son."

At that moment, I understood the importance of saying in time: "I LOVE YOU!" and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in life is more important than God and your family. Give them the time they deserve, because these things
cannot be put off till "some other time."

Pass this along to everyone with an aging parent, to a child, to an adult, to anyone with a parent. Here's hoping today is better than yesterday and tomorrow.

It is not only important to say I love you but it should also reflect in your actions. I am against nuclear family if your parents aren't part of it. I won't fly flag for joint system either because if you have many brothers then its difficult to live together in accordance with requirements of present day's life but your parents SHOULD be there as a part of your family always.. don't leave them to live alone or let them suffer in an old age home. Please I just hate those kids who are unthankful for the wonderful blessings that God has bestowed upon them. I know everyone wants to transcend the boundaries and be sucessful.. wants to move on but this is not a way to do that. With parent's blessings you will be happier which is the most important thing. Secondly privacy issue.. parents are sane enough to give your privacy and in th first place why you need privacy from parent, are you seperated souls?!

ROGER, R E A D T H I S CRAP! OVER!!

Have you listened to the album Kailasa and especially the track 'Teri Deewani'. The magic is in the voice dude.. sufi rock sound and Kailash Kher's mesmerizing voice reaches to the deepest chord of your heart soul. The video is so good.. both the track and the video has so much feel to it. I mean at first you will feel like it is a no-or-low budget video but it has Jami's genius and Saqib Malik's feel to it.. such music videos are rare in India.

I have been listening to lots of music lately. I mean not bundles of songs but few songs whose fever isn't getting over. If you don't like hindi bollywood movie songs still you will adore the tracks of 'Fanaa'. The best track is 'Mere Haath Main' for sure. Its beauty. Its serene. It makes you cry if you feel it to the highest degree. But what the shame, the promos tell that that director hasn't done justice to it while shooting it. I know it would have been hard to interpret such fine-tuned song and catch it through the lens. Secondly, Kajol is playing a role of blind girl in this movie so here is another limitation. No problem.. just imagine the whole beauty yourself ;)

Shubha Mudgal has a great powerful voice and we know that. She still sounds feminine which is also great. If you are into semi-classical stuff then she will rcok you!

I have started reading Edhi's Autobiography. Have just completed thirty pages. It is very touching yet disturbing. Will tell you about it whenever I finish it reading.

I want to learn Salsa!! BUT WHERE TO GO? next..

Help this kid, he is a leukaemia patient. You will earn some virtue outta it.

So after so much recommendations, this is the last one. Blogosphere is filled with ideas but these days it kinda bored up. I just googled something few days ago and I got a this blog link. I thought the idea to be very powerful. I am heard about weight-loss blogs, homeless people's blogs or education blogs but this one has a twist. It is a diary of an anonymous clueless individual who is feeling anxiety because his house is not his anymore.. not like a homeless story but a simple house-selling story. By now what I have observed that some new twist comes everyday.. an interesting and unusual blog for me.
