Forgiveness ?

How many times do you make mistakes and how many times do you seek forgiveness ?

Right Before You Die

Right before you die,
everything that you've been through
 in life; flashes right before your eye.
--- Sobia Nosheen (1998 - The Blue)

My Obsession With The Sky Above

I tend to stare at the sun for as long as I can. Not a good thing I guess!

Car Race Gone Bad !

A tragic car accident, a car race gone bad in Islamabad on the 5th of December 2010, took lives of innocent civilians. One of the boys who died in this accident was an 11 year old student named Asfandyar. I came to know about him only today.

Lovely words by Asfandyar, "anyone who leaves this world once, would never want to return to this world, even if he gets a chance to." What a lovely little boy. He had written against rash driving and speeding while he was alive. He is probably in a better place by now. He will live on forever. His story opens a connection between the two lifetimes. He was not even meant for this world.

He lives On!

It Said...

Before dying, the mouse said, "It's not my fault that I'm born a mouse".

Now that I'm a mouse, I do what mice do. I can't help it. Thank God you're not a mouse.
Mouse: Are you really gonna kill me?

G: Lemme think about it. Ummmm... Yeah I'll have to, sorry about that. I can't trust you running around with all my clothes and books scattered all around. I didn't invite you, did I?

Education does to a man what heat of the furnace does to a clay pot.

You May Or May Not...

There is wisdom in the years,
go find it.
These are the riches you should not miss to collect.
I have seen most people growing old, but not growing wise. I guess they have wasted the years and have not collected all the wisdom time had to offer them. Make sure you grow wise too besides growing old. Each passing moment holds pearls of wisdom that you have to seek and grab.

If Anyone Remembers...

Shafi kaka served in the Presentation Convent High School, since I was a little kid. Today when I went to Convent, I saw Shafi kaka, and the same smiling face like always. He still serves there and it was really great to meet him. He remembers me, and probably remembers every old student from school. It was lovely talking to Shafi kaka after ages. I wish him health and a long happy life.
