“Carnage at the Carnival”


OCTOBER 18 — is the day that has marked history of Karachi, and Pakistan, with blood!

The two bomb blasts left 140 people dead and hundreds injured! WHY? Nobody knows exactly why. Maybe, their sin was that they came to celebrate the return of their (self-)exiled leader, Benazir Bhutto, who was returning home after a span of about 8 years.

The cheerful celebration turned into mourning throng when a bomb blast immediately followed by another (after 90 seconds) very close to the truck on which BB was standing with other leaders of her party. The blasts took place at Karsaaz on Shahrah-e-Faisal.

Following is what happened:

BB thanking God after coming back to homeland after 8 years

Thousands of people who came from all parts of the country to welcome BB

Waving to the cheerful crowd

Blast took place setting 1 couple of vehicles on fire; BB’s truck also visible very close to the blast point

Volunteers taking the injured to ambulances for immediate treatment

The injured

The people of Karachi had not yet forgotten the killing of innocent people on 12th May, and this incident revived their fear of going out and enjoy life!!

I strongly condemn the blasts and want the responsible of these blasts should awarded the severest punishment!

Science & Technology


Advancement in the field of Science and Technology has become a ‘promise’ for any nation to ensure its survival in today’s age … While writing this, something is clicking in my mind: I’m reminded of an essay from the book ‘Points of View‘. The title of the essay is “Does Culture Matter?” Do get hold of the book and read the mentioned essay and tell me what you think..

(BTW, the image is of my laptop’s keyboard :) )

‘Nwe rseearch’ :)


“Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.

Cultural heritage ignored..


Following are some of the photographs my friends took on a trip to the rural area in district Dadu’s taluka Johi. The area is famous as ‘Kaccho’ (ڪاڇو). There are hundreds of such historical sites that need immediate attention of the archeology department to take some urgent steps in order to preserve this precious heritage:

A small tomb-like structure, one of the many like structures

in the graveyard (at Johi) locally known as Butta Qubba (Topless Tombs).

Some graves in pathetic state … one shower will be enough

to destroy them completely!!

An interior view from within a tomb

A topless tomb!

at Johi (district Dadu)

The government should take an immediate notice of this and many other historical sites being ignored in rural areas of Sindh; otherwise, we would not be able to claim to have many cultural things left..

“Enough time..”


The last week has been deadeningly busy for me… No space to have lunch or dinner… Swear!

It’s bad to be busy when it’s NOT your own work and, yet, you have to do it as your own; else, our very caring friends and relatives get sulky for not being caring to them. Now where to go???

I mean one cannot have even time to update one’s blog!! That’s what I think is simply unbearable. But, come what may, I WILL UPDATE MY BLOG…

And I have!

LOL :p

Thousands of Crying Hearts..


Think!

Thousands of hearts cry at the time others celebrate their success, achievement, promotion, fulfillment of their wishes, and many things..

One country celebrates their victory; the other is left to cry over misery that the war brought into their lives and devastated them thoroughly… One family celebrates their newly born baby; the other awaits bread to come and satiate them! Some enjoy their Valentines; while, at the same time, many cry over heart-breaking break-ups!

So many instances!!

I would luv to cry with the sobbing hearts than laugh with the rest!

What do U feel? Do scribble in Comments in the blog…

–Peace

Life is Sadness..


May heart is crying…. No one seems to listen to it!

Yes, this is exactly what I feel at the moment! My life has come to a point where happiness seems to me a Utopian thing. I’m a guy, and I don’t cry b’coz of the traditions… otherwise, if I let out my tears from my eyes, they’re sure to make a pounding sea!!

I cry..

I mean my life has come to a dreadful standstill… Nothing seems moving.. Nothing seems to move towards making my life joyful!

Relationships: that’s the word!

They have the power to make our world an Eden; they have the power to make it worse than Hell!
