My small small wishes!


I like to have small small wishes so that I can use them as a ladder to achieve big ones. I had so many wishes written in my diary, Alhamdullilah I have achieved many, some are still in process. Others still seems far away from my reach.

Below are some wishes I remember I have achieved. I will add others later.

–          To compete in Naat competition

Actually I recited Naat many times on different occasions. But I wasn’t able to take part in any of Naat competition. But there was a play in school. I recited there. It was enough for me.

–          Ipod

–          Mobile

–          Mobile with camera

Okay these three wishes got fulfilled when I was in college. I had to struggle a lot for “Mobile camera” because I was craazzzy photographer.

–          To give speech and to have standing ovation

Okay to give speech was BIG. I represent my whole matric batch in front of school. I gave farewell speech and out of expectations I got standing ovation  Students crying. I can never forget that event.

–        To have a big crowd in front of me.

In university, in front of around 600 people, I recited naat. That was big. It was my birthday too. Okay I know every small thing is big for me. Whatever 😛 I like to take things like this.

I was a host for Cube event. That was fabulous  I never knew I will have to host the program but “fortunately” their host got absent. And I got the mic. 😀

–          To have cute cute chicks ^_^

I bought three colorful chicks. They were so cute. They used to follow me everywhere. Chu chu chu.. I loved them. They loved me. We were happy family until one died because of my fault and gradually others started becoming weak and they died too. I miss them. I want more!

–          DSLR

I got it a year ago. I was crazy for it. This was the actual wish I ever put in front of my family.  I saved all my money for it. When you don’t have anything, you carve for it. When you have it, you don’t value it. This is the case with me.

–       Bahria Lipdub Official Photographer

Heading is enough explainable. 😀 .. I loved the senior batch I worked with. I wish I could have more time with them.

–          Nose pierced

I always loved nose piercing but I never wanted to have It before I get commited. Now I am engaged and my nose is pierced. By the way don’t ever go alone for piercing. It sucks for about half an hour. Believe me.

–          To have my room- wall painted

I always wanted my own room with my own type of setting. And One wall painted. I got my separate room years ago but wall got painted some months back.

–          To have my own dressing table with every kind of perfumes

Yes I am perfumes freak. I love perfumes and deodorants. Though I like stuff toys too. Whatever.

–          My blog to be well known

I wasn’t aware of the name blog until my friend made it for me. After then I just wanted it to be well known. It is still in process. But I guess I have achieved pretty much.

–          To have my article published in any magazine

Okay so this is going step by step. I got blog. Then my first article was published in PKwriter, The Brands, then Circles Magazine then Identity Magazine then News Tribe and then the online magazines list goes on.

–          To have my story published in a book

After I got published myself in online magazines, I wanted to have my works hardcopy. I seriously struggled a lot for this. I failed many times. Like many. I am still failing though. Thanks to my friends who never stopped pushing me.

I wrote a “ghatyaaessst” LONGEST story on Karachi city and got published by “oxford University Press”. Though they have edited it like hell. And I don’t like it at all. But still I have my hard copy in my hand. That is what I wished for. And to be honest Oxford University Press is not a small thing. Come ‘on!

P.s- After seeing edited version, I love my unedited version 😛

Well this wish doesn’t end here. I am still trying my articles to get publish. Still one of my article is submitted. I am ready for accepting failures. 🙂

–          To have blog award.

Actually this wasn’t my wish. A fan of my blog suggested me to get nominated in Pakistan Blog Awards and out of no where I got the award. It was really unexpected. RREALLY UNEXPECTED!

I just wrote this .. I never wrote my feelings out. Because I know deep in my heart. This blog is “ashaan” on me

–          <censored wish>

It is done. Shutup. I am not telling it. -_-

–          To have surprise birthday

My college friends gave me this party. 😀 It was fun. Though I knew this is going to happen but I still pretended it was surprise because I knew they wanted this way and they knew I wanted surprise. So yes! 😛 lets say compromise 😀

I wrote about one of the surprises here given by my uni frnds.

–          To make my parents proud by giving them a special invitation for my any award ceremony.

I want to keep this wish till I die. The first time my parents got invitation was when I was in my first grade then in third grade for getting positions in my class. The last time they got invitation was in fifth when I took part in play told above.

I moved from Saudia and came to Pakistan, had long gap until I was in matric and my parents got official appointment from school to sign a form for “suspension” ..hahah.. Yes I was suspended for two weeks. Forget about the reason 😛

The day I came back from suspension was the day my previous ninth grade result got announced and I was topper of my school. And the same management called my parents to congratulate. Haaaa! -_-

And recently we went to book launccch. A special invitation was received for the story published by Oxford University Press.

– To drive car like full chichori.. I don’t want to drive but to fly! (yes I know how to drive which was my wish. My new wish to drive without getting afraid. I dont want to be a typical “woman-driving” typeee)

This is sdone.. like DONE DONE. details here

– One day I will pick up my friends and will go on long drive ( I know this is going to happen soon- InshaALLAH)

This is done too ! at 8th March 2012 😀 I picked my friends and went to uni then khapppaaa

If I talk about my wishes that are not yet fulfilled. Not achieved yet. SO here they are

– To be a real GOOD muslim (I am seriously saying it. I don’t know if I am working on it. I am confused.)

– To have my solo novel  (I am working on it but I am lazier than a turtle)

– To do bungeee jumping (yes I know I will have to ask my husband for this -_- )


I can’t think of any other wish. Alhamdullilah I have everything I asked for. Alhamdullilah. And the things I didn’t achieve was for my own interest and benefit. I realized it after a time. You will realize it too. Never get dis-hearten for the things you failed. Failing means you at least tried. Try, Try until you get succeed.


Right Place at Right Time!



What would have happened if God would have provided us everything we want? Would we have remembered him? Would there be any connection between God and us?

If you think over it, we only remember God when we are in need, when we are weary and in need of strength, when we are lost and sick at heart, we remember Him. For some reasons, God has deprived us of things we want. There is always a reason behind His acts. It is our responsibility to find those reasons. And to find them, we have to build close connections with THE ONE who created us, who has the authority to do anything and who controls everything.

You should believe that your wish will be granted at the right time and at the right place. We are the creatures of the ONE who loves his creation more than 70 mothers can do to their children. What else can you expect from Him?
