This is the poem I like the most so I thought of sharing with you all!
You are the sunlight in my day,
You are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon,
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me life,
How not to fight, and what is right.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me,
You are the eyes that help me see.
You are the one who knows me best,
When it’s time to have fun and time to rest.
You are the one who has helped me to dream,
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.
Afraid of life but looking for love,
I’m blessed for God sent you from above.
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul
You are the greatest friend I know.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my Mom.
The sun is hidden below the clouds in the sky.The glistering rays of the sun are acting as an orange shadow.The sky looks beautiful with blue and orange combination.

Hoping to get the long desired peace in Pakistan has been the main concern of the media during the past few days.There are a lot of high hopes from the 12th elect Pakistani President -Mamnoon Hussain who is an IBA graduate that he will certainly help the country to improve its economic standards.
It is a mere fact that the entire Pakistan saw its worse five years when People Party was in power.Mr Mamnoon is a well educated person and his interview aired on ARY news yesterday brought hope to all Pakistani’s that this change will bring betterment in our country.
The biggest question is ,’Can we ever bring peace in Pakistan?’. Definitely yes.The simple solution is to eradicate poverty and to provide necessities(shelter,clothes and food) to the unpreviledged members of our society.Satisfaction in everyone’s life will be the starting of a peaceful nation.I believe that peace can not be brought by prayers and meditation but only by action.And I do wish that the new powerful party-i.e PML Nawaz along with the new elected President will work to fulfill their promises to the general public.
A peaceful Pakistan is a dream of every citizen.Our country has been blessed with every sort of natural resources(from minerals,goldmines,scenic beauty to the Arabian sea and the beautiful five rivers).Despite these resources Pakistan has been the victim of instability due to high corruption rate and terrorism.
Peace leads to prosperity and happiness.Thus it is the responsibility of every citizen to work with determination so that they can contribute towards the development of the peaceful nation.
YOUR IDEAS AND COMMENTS TO BRING PEACE IN PAKISTAN AND THE WORLD ARE WELCOMED.
Today,the heavy rain in Karachi was the ‘talk of the town’.I was watching a speech on internet when I saw my siblings running in the balcony.Soon after,I could hear the drizzling of rain and then it started raining cats and dogs.The weather turned pleasant after weeks of humidity.
We all took the first rain shower since we came to Karachi.I could see children starring at us as we went lunatic but it was fun We all were fasting so did not eat the pakoras.The trees and plants near our house became lush green and I saw the birds flying to get to a dry place( I presume).It rained the whole day which was shown on all the local news channels.
There was loadshedding due to electricity break down in many places of Karachi and some of the people were unable to reach their homes.The first picture above is at night and the other one is taken just when it started raining. However,there was no loadshedding at our place..alhumduillah and I had an amazing time today.I wish it rains again….soon!!
After one complete month of fasting we have a great day to celebrate that is Eid-ul-Fitr which is also called the methi(sweet) eid. Its a three days occasion filled with fun and joy.
People make new dresses and cook their favourite sweet dish at home.Even the ladies go to parlour to get their facial,eyebrows and hair cut done.If you really want to see the craze please make a visit to Karachi on Chaand Raat(the night before eid)
You wont believe that all the Karachities are out of their home (despite the high crime rate) enjoying the happy moments with their family.
For me the best thing about eid is Mehndi.I love henna and I don’t remember any Eid on which my hands were not filled with beautiful red patterns and design.I was so lunatic that till grade 7 I used to go to Parlour to get Mehndi/Henna on my hands till elbow giving the beautician 500 rupees for one side of the hand.
Last year I took classes and learned myself how to apply the designs on others hand.So this will be the first eid of my life when I will put mehndi my self instead of wasting my parents money and compelling them to take me to the beauty parlour.
The bright red patterns look amazing on lady’s hand and I believe that everyone should apply henna on their hands atleast once.It looks great!
Pakistan is known for its traditional arts and the Pakistani trucks and ricksaws are famous all over the world for the beautiful patterns ,drawings and calligraphy on it.Recently a Pakistani person displayed a Truck in an American exhibition and every one was amazed by the awesome work on the truck.
Here is a look of 2 most beautiful masterpieces:
It just seems like yesterday when I was a kid and used to play around with my cousins.There was no tension to study hard and get good grades.Those were some awesome days that I will cherish forever.
I used to play scabble and monopoly with my first cousins.The best feeling was when my dad use to let me stay at my cousins house for a sleep over.Me and my brother along with my two closest cousins used to stay awake all night watching some hilarious movie on T.V.
Our favourite show was Drake and Josh which used to come on Nicklelodean.One day (when I used in grade 3) we all decided to cook Maggie noddles as we were so hungry.We slowly went in the kitchen not to awake the elders and started cooking when my cousin broke the glass and my grandmother came and shouted at her.Me and my cousins were very close to one another.We used to spend hours playing with Barbie dolls,Doctor doctor and pretending to cook something.I really want those days to come back in my live.
Further more,I had a lot of second cousins of my age and we all were good friends.But sadly,every one went to different countries all because of migration(globalization) leaving me alone in Pakistan.Some of them went to Dubai and rest to America.
The sad part is that I rarely talk to anyone because they seem so busy in their lives.In grade 9 I went to Dubai for summer vacations but my cousin was busy with her friends and electronic gadgets.We were once so close with each other but now its all over.Even if we’ll meet everyone will be a stranger as its been ages since we talked or met each other.
I wish we all stayed in the same place and growed together as its so nice to have your cousins near you with whom you can share every single thing.Lucky are those who are living and enjoying together despite the globalization.
As those days can never come back all I can do is remember these awesome memories for the rest of my life.And I wish my cousins feel the same!
