Because your every word is something that inspires a physical reality.

12 Aug

Because your every word is something that inspires a physical reality.       

Because your every word is something that inspires a physical reality,

That reality morphs itself again and again, till I tire of its numerous forms.

You present me one side, and then refuse another,

The minute I turn to check on the coin, it appears to be a feather.

That feather flies away, twisting its fragile existence in the bipolar winds,

The winds mess with my hair till everything seems a mess.

Incomprehensive, is that a word, my love?

That defines you.

Touch her

13 Jul

ImageTouch her, for she has never been touched.

Soothe her, for she knows not comfort.

Heal her, because her wound still bleeds.

Entrap her, cause she runs from freedom.

Promises weren’t made, they were created at the coffee table,

Hopes don’t rise, they are given birth.

 

I go back home after dance class and lie in bed,

In my dreams I twirl cause nothing needs to be said.

 

I wake up two months later and contacts have been deleted,

Emotions that once existed have depleted.

A rant about a darn institution! Please read up :D

Originally posted on Rants from Karachi:

Educational involvement becomes rather serious and impactful when one decides to enroll into a University for ‘undergraduate studies’. Investing four years in order to attain a complete specialization in one field is a good chunk of your youth. However these years are compensated if the students receive a good education and environment, unfortunately a few students at University of Karachi regret these four years rather than cherish them. However the majority of students graduate from this institution with uplifting experiences and are quite oblivious to the corrupt roots that tangle many students and their educational flair. Hold on tight readers, and don’t hesitate from letting me know what you think!

I chose to write about this because I believe that there are many students out there who are being silenced into authoritative submission which eventually leads to a rot of talent and knowledge. Teachers are meant to be a source of hope…

Read up on my post about lack of street lights in Karachi, Pakistan! :)

STREET LIGHTS IN KARACHI AREAS: PAKISTAN, WHERE IS THE LIGHT?

“Arey chor chaar ke apney Saleem ki gali, Anarkali bulb laganey chali!”

Did I just include a Bollywood item song in my post? Yes, I did!

I’m not exactly sure where Anarkali resides within the numerous neighbourhoods that are oozing out in the perimeters of Karachi, but I’m sure she’s frustrated by the ‘street light’s or rather “lack of street lights” in the city. Two consecutive nights I drove in the surrounding areas of Gulistan-e-Johar and I found it rather distracting that I literally had to peek at the windscreen to make sure that someone’s not crossing the death-awakening corners of narrow streets.

It doesn’t help when you’re one of those drivers that multi-task, that is “drive and cuss”. Since I’m one of those people who drives rarely and swears enough to compensate for the 360 days that I…

South Asia, where is it going?! Follow this blog and leave your ideas :)

FOR SOME GOD FORSAKEN REASON, I WAS REMINDED OF MY FINAL YEAR THESIS, WHICH USELESSLY LIES IN MY CUPBOARD TILL TODAY. I HAVE PASTED A FEW EXCERPTS FROM IT TO GIVE YOU A ‘ROUGH’ IDEA OF WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. ITS KEY PLAYERS INCLUDED SAARC AND EU, BOTH ARE SIGNIFICANT REGIONAL INSTITUTIONS IN TODAY’S WORLD. HOWEVER EU SEEMS TO HAVE A STRONGER GROUND AND STANCE THAN SAARC, WHICH IS WHY I CHOSE EU AS AN EXEMPLARY MODEL FOR THE DEVELOPING SOUTH ASIAN SOCIETY WITH RELEVANCE TO ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES.

*SAARC- South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation

*EU- European Union

“The historical development of a myriad of events and efforts shaped the progressive yet gradual significance of ‘Environment’ as a thriving hot topic in the International scenario. Primary efforts can be traced back to the nineteenth century whereby international commissions for the Rhine and Danube Rivers were established, moreover the International Joint Commission between…

Here’s a new post from “Rants from Karachi”!

Normally, I blog about specific things which have a direct relevance to the perimeters I live within, but this time it’s different!

Why?

Because it’s worth it.

Tonight I was going through the numerous tweets on my laptop screen, and I came across a short link which I clicked on and read up on a purely genius idea which emanated beautiful creativity! This is the link: http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject

It’s titled “The Sketchbook Project 2013” and people who participate will get their sketchbooks placed in the Brooklyn Art Library. In order to be a part of this exciting venture, all you need to do is pay up a bit and get your very own sketchbook all the way to your address, which you can fill with photos, cut outs, poems, pictures, stories or travel experiences.

The dynamics are diverse for each sketchbook, you can choose whichever category you like the…
