PTI – Jalsa in Karachi 25th Dec

“Imran” ko rokna abh mushkil hi nahi namumkin hai! – Imran has now become unstoppable!

Yeah, Alhumdulillah that’s true and that too for good. So Congratulations to all Pakistan who supported him all the way through. He has become the flavour of this era and there is no doubt about his overwhelming public support from all over the country and even from overseas. It is also clear now that not even establishment can provide you with such huge support. I mean I watched it online because I was not in the country, there were people from all walks of life and that too in very large numbers and not a single reported mishap at Mazaar-e-Quaid – MashAllah and Alhumdulillah!

It was clear that people over there were the true Pakistanis who were fed up with whatever previous governments have been playing them up with, and now they’re very much interested in what PTI – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has got to offer! People want ‘change’! Something different, something lively and fresh, something that will make this country what Allama Iqbal dreamt about it and what Quaid-e-Azam struggled for, and I think Imran Khan will succeed inshAllah in providing people with exactly that!

Many politicians joined the PTI after watching it making it big in Lahore Jalsa where people were shockingly blown away by the huge number of people that turned up. These politicians need no introduction as they’re the same old players from other political backgrounds. After this influx of new politicians the media and of course the general public raised their eyebrows over issues like how will Imran Khan bring about the revolution that he keeps on talking about with these previously tried faces. Well, this question was well handled by one of PTI’s senior member, he said, ‘It doesn’t matter if the people are the same or not, because the mission and the policies are not the same and these people are only joining only after understanding the mission and policies of the PTI, not because they have their own interest’. According to me, I think if Imran and his lot live up to their words, then this will be surely bring about a revolutionary change in the country.

Making it happen in Karachi – the city of lights or better known as the city of mights, is an achievement on its known because who wouldn’t agree upon Karachi being owned by MQM, forcefully or peacefully that is a different question, but yeah, Karachi ‘was’ MQMs’ but alas, not anymore by the looks of it Today at Mazaar-e-Quaid. People of Karachi are very much done with MQM, I guess, they are looking forward to keeping their cellphones to themselves for a while, they have decided not give in to those  ‘bhatta collectors’ every week. Karachites are done with the ‘Target Killings’.  Karachites are done with ‘Load-shading’. Karachites are done with ‘Telephonic Speeches’. People of Karachi are done with you ‘Altaaf Hussain’ and they’re done with your ‘MQM’. Yeah that’s about it. People of Karachi have had enough and they showed it to the whole world Today at PTI’s Jalsa.

The Lahore Tsunami, as they called it, was the ignition and now it has become a full on blazing fire which cannot be stopped by any means. I hope and pray that all this is happening for the good, because if it’s not then like they say, ‘Allah hi Hafiz hai is mulk ka to’!

Thanks for the read, I really wanted to write something on this historic day and wanted to be a part of it somehow!

Learned from bus conductor-7

Well expressed!

Your blog post reminded me of an incident which happened with me!

What happened was that I was travelling on such a bus in Pakistan and I gave a 100 rupees note to the ‘conductor’ (same age as mine at that time, about 16 or 17), he gave me the wrong change back. When I asked him, he said something and then I said something back which I honestly don’t remember, but what I remember clearly was that we ended up arguing about something and I said those harsh words after which he ignored me and moved on to the next passenger.

What I said was: “Agar parh likh letay to yeh din na deikhna parta na!”  Translation: “Only if you were educated you would have been better off!”

I’m 25 years old now, almost a decade older, but it still kills me from inside whenever I get reminded of it! :S But I guess I was an ignorant little brat who was doing his O levels at that time and didn’t know shit about life and what to say and what not to say… :S

I would’ve never realised what I’ve said to that poor fellow, but only when one of my best friends (Ibrahim) who was also travelling with me reminded me of it when we reached home. He told me that what I said to the conductor was not nice at all. Then I relived the whole incident in my head and realised how cruel I had been to the conductor.

So yeah, I still feel bad about it and I wish that if I have hurt him, he forgives me before aakhirat. It’s a burden on my chest. :S

What if that bus conductor was never educated? What if he wanted education but he or his parents couldn’t afford it? What if he wanted to become a bus conductor and he liked his job? What if it was his destiny and it was chosen by Allah Mian for him to live his life as a conductor? What if he was only doing it temporarily because of some unavoidable circumstances? What if I have hurt him so much that he cursed me later on? What if he started hating every other pupil that got on to that bus? What if… and What not.. :S

All these questions disturb me even today… 😦

May Allah forgive me for my sins and prevents me from hurting people like this in future! Ameen

Soul of Life!

This long awaited post of mine is finally taking its shape today and finally I have managed to gather words to put together.

I was on my way home from office on 19th of October when this incident took place that really made me learn something thought provoking that our society needs to think about. Well I got the bus and since there was no place to sit, I was standing , accompanied by bunch of other women who were as exhaust as me, yet they had to reach home in time. So this mid-age bus conductor of the coach made a deliberate effort to get in the ladies compartment and started asking for Bus fare. One of the ladies whom he asked, said that “Mai ne apko hundred rupees diye to thay”. ( I had given you hundred rupees already ). To which he replied, “Yeh hundred kia hota…

Update: A visit to Manchester

 

Shower Girl, originally uploaded by M B A Khan.

Last weekend was awesome!

I was with my school buddy Adil Memon, he’s studying at the University of Manchester. I had booked my holidays for this weekend (yeah, I book holidays for weekends because normally I work on weekends), so that I could take some time out. I’ve been working like a lunatic for the last few weeks and Allah knows I needed a break.

So yeah, We had dinner together and then some sheesha. Saturday morning was so lovely that I decided to spend the day shooting in town center and this is was one of the shots that I managed to take. Isn’t it just lovely to see this little girl jumping in joy, lost in her own world of innocence and the carefree attitude she’s carrying in the picture, oh God! I love it for so many reasons.

Well, anyway, I’m going off now, I don’t really find time to blog these days, but tell you what, I do miss it sometimes, and hopefully I’ll restart blogging soon enough!

Bye now,
