Life and its diplomacy!

“The reality of life is that your perceptions — right or wrong — influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place”

Birkman, Roger

If you are able to read it, it means you live a luxurious life because of having a computer to use and to have internet to read this article. There is always a day when your life shows you the practical side. You never get to know the hardships your parents faced in bringing you up until and unless you go through that process and the stage.

These are some of those days in which I am realizing, absorbing and digesting some of the hard realities of life. The biggest reality of life which I always denied, the reality that money is an important element of life to remain happy. The reality that you can’t get a job with a handsome salary after spending thousands on your education.

I have now come out of my books and learnt the real meaning of inflation and its impact on low class people and most importantly the differentiation of classes. I always had misconception that after spending around 3 lac in some private university will get you a job of at least 50k but it was just my figment of imagination. Life is not easy nor the method of acquiring money.

The reality of a common middle man is to work 9 to 5pm like a donkey and still pray not to have shortage of money at the end of the month. He cuts down his budget to nurture his children. He buries his own needs somewhere deep hidden from everyone while the short and easy definition of low class category is they live hand to mouth. No saving, No change in lifestyle, and a life no one would ever want to live.

When you get out of your home to explore the world, you will get to know that life is not a piece of cake. You can’t have everything as soon as you ask for. If you are able to do anything with your father’s references, you don’t need to be proud of it because it’s not you; it’s your father who should be given a credit. You are just a piece of shit without them. Get out of this glittery world and taste the harsh side of the world. The Real side!

Life is just a diplomatic game. Be a Politician and win it!


Change!? Maybe YES!

It’s embarrassing to admit that we should count over selves as those Pakistanis who have become completely disillusioned with the state of affairs of the nation. We are becoming numb to whatever happen to any kind of news, whether it is good or bad, satisfying or disturbing, until and unless it affect our lives, we are CONTENT and living our lives as nothing is happening. This “hopeless” emotion comes when someone is kicked off or if he is cornered and upon lack of attention available, he chooses the option which is most suitable to him, the option of SELFISHNESS which can give him inner satisfaction and minimum amount of displeasure.

Most of the readers will be questioning this sentiment and might be outraged with this idea of mine. From quite few days, whether I am on twitter or face-book, I look in newspaper or flip channels; there is a new BIRTH of an old face. A man considered as Fanatic (JUNOONI), extra patriotic and obviously Idealistic by most of the crowd. Also a Former cricket player- IMRAN KHAN!

There are many followers as well as opposers of him, having different opinions. According to a news paper some say “Yes, that’s who we are looking for — someone who can set us on the way to a prosperous and a disciplined society.” Some even went and said that “He’s bigger than Quaid-e-Azam, new country can be made by anyone, the real task is to rescue drowning country”. Some people are so hopeless that we listens statements like “Each and every politician is equally corrupt. He is just getting youth attention because he is SHARPER than ZARDARI. He will create MASS DESTRUCTION soon- just watch him!!”

If we talk about Imran’s jalsa. Like so many others, I was surprised to see the number of people who attended it and more shocking was the youth who were so enthusiastic to give support to an upcoming-new leader in corrupted scene of politics where there is Haqqani conspiracy on one hand and Mirza’s comments on the other hand. No doubt I admit that at least Imran Khan did better than the rest in stating his plan on how he intends to RIGHT the national WRONGS.

Well, If we keep picking out mistakes in everyone, nothing will work. After all at the end of the day we all have a responsibility for nation. The way we do mistakes, the way we close our eyes from our responsibilities, these politicians can also do the same. We can criticize or bash a particular person who is trying to help or we can applaud him for what he has done for the country so far.

After revival of Imran Khan, I realized that every disillusioned citizen is subconsciously a patriot waiting in silence for someone to inspire his reawakening and maybe Imran Khan did it. We have both options whether to criticize or applaud so why not to TRY some CHANGE!? We already have suffered and tolerated many of the politicians, let Imran Khan try! We can atleast hope for the better future !
