Green Tea

I’ve been drinking this special Green Tea every morning and night for the past few weeks in a bid to lose my spare tire. Tonight, Begum reminded me and asked whether she should make it.

Me: Aray haan, main to bhool hi gaya tha!

Begum: Haan, dekho kitni achhi hoon main!

Me: Yes begum!

Begum: Khud hi bolna para mujhay!

Me: Yaar main bhool gaya tha na.

Begum: Green tea ki baat nahin kar rahi hoon main!

Dream Come True

All it takes is a fight to remember how much I love her!

She went out of her way just to make me feel better and I did nothing for her. I feel so stupid!

And I cherish her more than ever!

I put tears in her eyes time and again, she comes back to me to make me feel better. I long for the time when I can repay it and show her how much she means to me, even though I always end up acting like a jackass to her. I want to kiss her feet again and again and again till the end of time.

It hurts to think that I have to leave her behind, I love to see her beautiful face whenever I can. When she calls me to wake me up sometimes, her soft voice is the perfect thing to wake up to. I wonder how awesome waking up to her beautiful face would be like!

It takes some time, staying away from something wonderful in your life in order to remember what its worth and how much it means to you. Then when you see it again, its an instant elevation into the realms of majestic euphoria, the fulfillment of all your wishes, like drinking cold water after days of extreme thirst!

She is that wonder in my life, my heart and soul, my sweet little dream come true.

She is my Cheekoo!

Once upon a time, I used to blog.

Yeah, right here.

At that time, you could’ve considered me to be a waila, or at least semi-waila to be honest. But nowadays, its just too hard to find time to do anything other than work, studies and sleep. Sometimes I sneak a movie or two in, but that’s about it. Also, according to a recent study conducted by the Haraamkhor and Kaamchor Association of South Asia, wasting time on Facebook and Twitter does not count. Totally legit!

Also, I’ve been working on a personal project of mine the progress of which has been subject to mood swings, relationship ups and downs, office hours, spikes in haraamkhori, etc. But its a good project. And classified. :D

Somewhere between all this work load (both actual and imaginary) lie one or two urges to blog that get drowned by the bout of haraamkhori that follows within a matter of minutes.

So, how did this post happen then?

I got bored of haraamkhori. :(

Testimonial: Anum Batool

Dramaayyy! That’s what i like to call him.That’s what he really is.

Okay Ali, i’m free to honor you with anything..right? =P but sadly i cant insert bad words here that go best with you =P

This crazy tall thing.. cousin of mine (sigh!), is the most impossible case i’ve ever come across with..and for that i’m obligated to bear his never-ending idiocies no matter what.

He never misses a chance to annoy me.. but still one way or the other makes up to it. The best thing about him is that he’s so perfect in cheering you up at the worst of your moods. He does it really well.

A complete package of awesomeness yet proud shamelessness, with lot of self-obsession.

He’s crazy, he is annoying but really is a sweetheart.And yess, he is a cute pathan. =D

PS. Don’t go for his looks. They are deceptive. =P

On a concluding note, it’s always good to have a cousin like him. =)

Tragedy Of The Wise And The Knowledgeable

It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

It is the dream of every intellect, every talent, every art to be recognized for what sets it apart from the rest. Some dreams come true, others don’t.

One common thing about all three: they are not very common. And due to this, they have to come across undeserved stupidity from their counterparts.

For one to fathom completely the level of knowledge or intellect of another, one must either be on the same level as that person, or even higher. Wisdom can not be judged by stupidity as stupidity lacks the necessary criteria to guess where wisdom draws it’s conclusions from. It is knowledge that begets wisdom, and it is wisdom that accepts knowledge.

Stupidity, on the other hand, rejects knowledge and fails to recognize wisdom, thereby, closing all doors upon itself.

The biggest grief of a wise man, or the knowledgeable, is to watch his efforts to enlighten be absorbed into the immensely dense black hole of the stupidity of a nation. Nothing comes of it, no positive response, no credit for his work.

Except for criticism, mostly, resulting from the collective mindset of the subjects not being able to comprehend the depth or magnitude of the information being passed to them. But it can also be due to some bias or enmity that they refuse to accept it.

“Don’t pay attention to who’s saying; pay attention to what’s being said!”

Hazrat Ali (A.S.)

The common mind then resorts to one of two options: a) Total ignorance b) Judgments, according to it’s own level of ‘wisdom’.

And these judgments by the ‘audience’ tend to be on the same level as their thinking, therefore, getting readily accepted without proof. In the end, the heart-broken wise man looks on helplessly as his efforts go to waste and his character is belittled at every chance fate gives his enemies.

Wisdom and knowledge stand their ground, yet the sunlight is mostly blocked by clouds of bias, ignorance, stupidity, etc, but with whomever few getting it becoming wiser and wiser and wiser…


Dedicated to my mentor, my father-figure, my source of knowledge and wisdom

Allama Dr. Syed Zameer Akhtar Naqvi

May Maula (A.S.) bless him with a long and prosperous life and keep his shadow on our heads until the Awaited One arrives!


“When this world favors somebody, it lends him the attributes, and surpassing merits of others and when it turns its face away from him it snatches away even his own excellences and fame.”

Hazrat Ali (A.S.)
