English men Greenwashed- Revenge Taken

Standard

Forgetting all the blame-games our “men in green” being imposed in 2010  by English media claiming that Pakistan fixes almost every important match and all the bookies are directly or indirectly connected with the Paki players. Men in green stepped up in the ground with new zeal and strongly replied the English media by whitewashing England team by 3-0. I might say they simply “Made their loud mouth shut” by their stunning performance. Though it took our team 2 years to reply back but it was the best possible reply they could make and just at the right time. English Critics are being slapped hard and  they’re being forced to praise the men in green in their tweets. Rehman and Ajmal twisted their minds with their “Dusras” and the pacy deliveries of Umer Gul broke the defense of English batsman.

Pakistan is the first Asian team to white wash England in the history of cricket. In the third test even after bowled out at 99 runs. Pakistan pulled back into the match by the brilliance of Younis Khan and Azhar Ali. Then after bowlers did the rest to bent down the high heads of English men :D. 

This is a great lesson for the English players and their media that time not always remain the same. There is always GOOD after BAD. Though some of our gambled but we recovered very soon and proved ourselves in the Cricket world. The TRUE CHAMPIONS are those who learn from  their mistakes and rose up high after suffering heavy loss, and yet we proved that we are the REAL HEROES. Now its thir time to be criticized. 

English team get ready for the ODIs and T20s because men in green are ready to test your temperament again. Lets see what happens, hope for the best. Cheers for the Pakistani team 😀

PAKISTAN ZINDABAD !!

“Yes” Together we are the solution

Standard

Well when we talk about ethnicity in Pakistan, there’s always a negative response from people residing in different ethnic regions. Witnessing our elders the Y-generation also caught up by the ethnic fire  and it burnt their harmonic feelings for each other. They’re forced to do riots for the sake and respect of their particular regions. Not many governmental or non governmental organizations aren’t taking such initiatives  to bring youth from different shades of culture under a single umbrella. Youth’s energy is not channelized to work as a unit.

                                                                        

Channan Development Association (CDA) in collaboration with Y-peer Pakistan and Punjab government  arranged Asian Youth Conference and Peace festival 2011 in Lahore, which I believe is one of the major initiative took by Young people of Lahore and across Pakistan . National Delegates (from across Pakistan), including me ;) , Speakers (across Pakistan) and International delegates (across Asia) were invited to gather and talk about peace. To spread love. And to eradicate all the hatred that we’ve taken in our hearts for each other since a long time. The event was based on the theme “Together we are the solution” as I named the blog on this theme.

It was three day fun and interactive festival .Many noted personalities and inspiring speakers accompanied including Ali Moeen, Sarmad Tariq, Amara Anwar, Usman Shahid, Umair Jaliawala, Nazia Ramzan and many Asian young models .I personally interacted with the people of Lahore, Karachi, Hyderabad, Peshawar, Quetta , Islamabad, Gilgit and almost people from every region. I felt very much common among ourselves, and the common thingy was that we all belong to one nation Pakistan. At that time no one was Sindhi, Balochi, Pakhtun or Punjabi.We get to know so much about the cultures of each other and even we had interaction activities and workshops in festival.

I never knew anything about the people of Gilgit, just knew that its Pakistan’s paradise. Never wandered of how talented and passionate they are. I met and heard some gilgitis and they simply inspired me. Even there are not much awareness, and there is lack of education since there not much schools and colleges there, but the youth of Gilgit is taking equal part in political and social activies.

Cultural night was conducted on the second day of the event. Basically it was a concert of noted musicians which turned out into a Cultural night at the end. Experienced the real importance of Pakistani culture. On one side I was extremely overwhelmed to come by variety of colours, dresses and songs depicting different cultures including Punjabis, Sindhis, Balochis, Pakhtuns, and Gilgitis. On the other side I was grieving inside because we have forgotten our identities by ignoring our culture. We’re strayed by the bright colours of western culture. In a while we just lost ourselves. We over leaped our own culture. I also have no identity because I don’t follow my customs any more. One of the major factors of why Pakistani youth facing problems is that there aren’t much awareness among them to revive our customs back. So I believe it was a great initiative took by CDA

I was a little bit sad on the third day because I didn’t want the event to end. In such tough time as Lahore was all caught up by Dengue and viral infections, the delegates showed up and came to the festival. team of CDA, volunteers and executive committee gave their level best even in the chewy time. It really seemed to me that ” Yes together we are the solution”. All of us gathered on a single platform, danced , sung, questioned-answered, and left with tons of memories. Hats off all the young people who organized such an event. I hope to witness such festivals in the near future, and we will make peace instead of war among us Inshallah .

Defence Day: Saluting bravery 46 years on

Standard

Pakistan Defence Day Karachi

Today is September 6 which is marked to pay homage to those courageous soldiers who martyred fighting for the defence of their homeland. Yet now, these soldiers had left no stone unturned in sacrificing there lives for eradicating terrorists from our country. But if we take a brief look on our condition today, then we’ll come to know that in all these years army integrated people from different regions into a  knotted family, why have our politicians failed to do the same ??

Our nation is divided on the basis of interests, regions, activities and Firqas. We lost most of our country by just ignoring unity among us, and we learnt none of the lessons from those martyrs who stood like a unified wall till the end of the war. Unfortunately, we proudly celebrate Defence Day but we never look upon on those struggles which were put by our soldiers to defend our homeland. And we still express negativity for our country. We never think why this day is considered so important to Pakistan’s History, the reason is that  they never loosed hope, they fought like brave lions, and stood like the strongest barrier in front of the enemy, and they made the Green flag rise high. They set up a perfect instance for our youth.

These are the lessons we should learn from them and the day we’ll realize their importance, then the enemies that are looking down us will step back. The reason for writing this blog post is not to criticize people although many of us don’t know what happened on September 6th , which I feel very unfortunate.I just want us to realize the worth of this day and bring it into reality. And we will do it Insh’allah. I still Hope Pakistan . Do you?
