امیدوں کو نہ توڑو ....سمی یوسف کی آواز ہم پاکستانیو کے لیے

Thanx god the forefathers of Pakistani cricket are dead long ago

Disgrace is all ours gentlemen

Thanx god the likes of Fazal Mehmood and Kardars are now in their graves and have been spared the humility of watching a bunch of stupid idiot kids of their own nation sully the name of their beloved country and sport in such a degrading manner. I know these guys will make a comeback soon after the usual drama of suspension and appeals and in the name of Pakistani cricket but at least they should never be allowed to call themselves heirs to such marvelous marvelous gentlemen.

It is feverish and flooded but Pakistan can yet thrive and about "good" generals

Why we are calling another general?

Mohsin Hamid, one of the most well known English novelist of PakistanIt is feverish and flooded but Pakistan can yet thrive wrote a very beautiful piece about Pakistan of today and I want to share it with you here. Read and feel better as well as educated.

I am reading a lot about pros and cons of "good" generals taking over Pakistan to cure it of all its diseases inflicted by "corrupt" politicians. I am also writing and contributing a lot in various blogs with my opinion. Two things that I will like to copy here which I wrote on our very own FASTIAN, samir butt's blog.

Mohsin Hamid
1. I think it is very irresponsible and idiotic of leaders of mainstream political parties to even think of inviting “patriotic” generals to cure Pakistan of all its diseases. One thing…I don’t think Ayyub, Zia or Musharraf were less patriotic than others and some “other” generals are more patriotic than these three gentlemen. Second thing…there is no politician “less” patriotic and “more” corrupt than any generals of our army and we know that too.
The problem lies in the fact that we as Pakistanis have spent around 63 years under authoritarian and hierarchical governments rather than true democratic governments. The governments were always authoritarian in Pakistan whether military or civilian. The solution to overcome these authoritarian regimes is not to impose another military supervised doctrine but to let the democracy move forward. We should trust the collective judgment of 180 million people of Pakistan. With the passage of time, democracy will start taking care of itself…and NO…I don’t agree with you that we don’t have that much time….Nations HAVE that much time always…

2. Which army has transformed the democracy of India???? And by the way do you really think there is no corrupt politician or ghundas or criminals in Indian politics? Which army transformed the democracy of America? And by the way don’t tell me there are no interest groups and mafia and corruption in USA? Did army transform the democracy of France? And by the way don’t tell me that president of France Sarkozy is not taking kickbacks? Which army transformed the democracy of Italy? And don’t tell me Mr. Berlusconi is all neat and clean like milk? Why is it so that only in PAKISTAN, we always invite army to root out the corruption of politicians? The army comes, we deliver sweets, the generals plunder even more for decades, and they can’t prove a things against these CORRUPT politicians and then the generals leave with the same politicians again responsible for handling the rot they left behind? Zaradari or no Zardari, the question is not of him but of democracy. Shall we Pakistanis never learn and lives in our so called castles of high morality? I again say, let the democracy correct itself.

امید صبح نو

امید صبح نو کی اب کہیں سے تو نوید آے
اجالے کی کرن پھوٹے گھڑی کوئی سعید آے

Proud to be a Pakistani...Proud to be a survivor

Who can defeat a nation that can smile in the face of such Adversity
And who has such a courage


And such a faith in itself

Listening to the non-stop rantings from our media and thinking about several things. Things like what a nation we are that we have faced a flood in year 2010 like world has never seen before in past 300 years and still we have survived. What a nation we are that we faced one of the most severe earthquake just five years ago in 2005 and we still survived. What a nation we are that we are facing terrorists, suicide bombers, corruptions, dishonest leaderships, senseless media, mad jingoists, floods, earthquakes and we still survived. I bet no other nation has so much resistance as we do. No nation would have survived even the one tenth of what we have survived in past sixty three years. I listen many people saying Quaid-E-Azam must be very disappointed to see the state of our affairs. I say he will at least be proud of the fact that he lead a nation that matched courage of his own in the face or adversity. We have lived through very difficult times and we shall surely live through this time as well...with or without foreign aid, with or without hypocrite leadership, with or without mindless media.

I am a Pakistani and am proud of it. I want to live here and die here among those who have taught me how to live a life worth living.

But as I always say, it is my perspective...second perspective...and gosh I am happy with it.

My comments published by Daily Mail over the article published in daily mail titled "Why Cameron should count ....."

Asif Zardari
Recently there was an article published by Daily mail titled "Why Cameron should count his fingers after shaking hands with Pakistan's Mr Ten Per Cent". I had some thoughts about it which I sent to the newspaper and they were gracious enough to publish those. Following is what I had to say;
"I don't know why you need to twist facts even in such a reputable newspaper as daily mail. Why you need to put banning of 500 websites in the account of president while those websites were blocked because of material they hosted which was sensitive for Muslim's feelings? why do you need to trivialize bad remarks from your prime minister while exaggerating jokes about our president? why do you need to highlight our bad areas while glossing over your absolutely out of the mind follies? Why are you still not able to see the problem which is afflicting us today but will surely reach your doorsteps as well? Sorry but by writing such naive things, you are repeating same mistakes that we committed and consequently imposed a president like Zardari on ourselves."

How Microsoft is positioning itself in the age of cloud computing

How Microsoft is viewing things in 2014
 They say a picture is worth a thousand words and this picture meant much more to me than that. Quite simply: Global IT spending in 2014 will be a whopping 2.5 trillion. The traditional IT market share in this mammoth amphibious will be just 400 billion. Microsoft is gearing up to tap this market through cloud computing tools such as AZURE. So the question for us in Pakistan is very simple.....are we gonna let another train miss our station?????

Aik dua Watan K Liye

Khuda Karay Ke Meri Arz-e-Pak Per Utray
Wo Fasl-e-Gul Jisay Andesha-e-Zawaal Na Ho

Yahan Jo Phool Khilay, Khila Rahay Sadi'on
Yahan Khizaan Ko Guzarnay Ki Bhi Majaal Na Ho

Yahan Jo Sabza Ugay, Hamesha Sabz Rahay
Aur Aisa Sabz Ke Jis Ki Koi Misaal Na Ho

Khuda Karay Ke Na Kham Ho Sir-e-Waqar-e-Watan
Aur Is Ke Husn Ko Tashweesh-e-Mah-o-Saal Na Ho

Her Aik Fard Ho, Tahzeeb-o-Fun Ka Oaj-e-Kamaal
Koi Malool Na Ho, Koi Khasta Haal Na Ho

Khuda Karay Ke Meray Aik Bhi Hum'Watan Ke Leay
Hayaat Jurm Na Ho, Zindagi Wabaal Na Ho

                  Khuda Karay Ke Meri Arz-e-Pak Per Utray
                  Wo Fasl-e-Gul Jisay Andesha-e-Zawaal Na Ho

آ گیئ فصل سکوں

صادقین
آ گیئ فصل سکوں چک گریبان والو
سل گئے ہونٹ' کوئی زخم سلے یا نہ سلے
دوستو بزم سجاؤ کہ بہار آئی ہے
کھل گئے زخم ' کوئی پھول کھلے یا نہ کھلے


ماہ-آزادی مبارک
