Being a girl, I came across a lot of scenarios where I had to fight to get my right. Especially being an engineering student, I answer many questions on daily basis about why I like engineering, why didn’t I join any “girl field” and so on and on. For years I have been a very strong person especially when it come to gender biasing and racial differences. Luckily, Allah gave me the best parents and family, who understand my interests, and supports me and my sisters in any field or any decision we make in and for our life.
I came across this video and I was surprised how gender biasing is affecting the men in our society now. Why the person is judged by what they do, instead of how talented they are.
Our parents should stop listening to “wo kia kahenge” (what will they say?). Honestly, sometimes I wonder who are these “they” people. 😀 Why our parents care more about these people more than their own kids?
Ehsan Hilal, a confident young man, ready to face the world with his talent. He is a great belly dancer and chose this because he finds it peaceful. Kudos to him for standing for his dreams!!! (Y) (Y)
Champions believe in themselves, even when no one else does.
Since I was small, my grandmother told me how difficult and stressful her life was as an orphan. Few years ago, I got a chance to visit an orphanage. The kids in the orphanage were very happy and excited to see the visitors. This excitement made me convinced to adopt a baby.
When I tell this to my family and friends, they smiled and appreciated me for my positivity, but when they realized that I am really serious about this, they start telling me how difficult my life would be, specially because I want to adopt a baby very early in my life ( I Am 22 and planning to adopt next year, when I will be in my Masters). So here I would like to mention my reasons, why I want to adopt. (Please feel free to comment and express your concern about my decision)
Although orphanages provides food, clothes and shelter to the orphans, but I believe that the children needs more than that. They need a family who value and love them.
I want to give them importance. In orphanages, all kids are treated in a same way, everyday. They have fixed timetable for everything. From food to clothes, they do what they are asked to do. I want them to have a life just like how I had. Free and fun.
Requesting my mother to make my favorite dish, or convinced her to buy me the clothes that I liked are some good memories, which I believe all children deserve.
People who goes through tough time in there life tend to be more talented and hardworking if they are given the chance. I want to provide the kid with the best education so my baby can take part in the wellbeing of our society. I believe kids can become champions only if they are given the correct path.
Parents are the biggest blessings of Allah. I have been away from my parents since last 4 years. I know how it feels to be away from family. But whenever I am happy, sad, sick, tired, stressed, tensed or angry, I Skype with my parents and share my problems. But unfortunately orphans can’t even wish to meet or call their parents.
In my life I have been attending a lot of weddings. I have never seen in my 22 years life any orphanage invited to attend a wedding. They spent their entire life in orphanage and have no idea how weddings are. They don’t know what Mehndi Henna Night, Bridal Shower, Valima reception etc means.
These are just few of many reasons that I have to adopt a kid. Honestly, I sometimes feels scared that after I will die, God will ask me “ Why you didn’t do anything for the orphans?”
And I won’t have any answer to that. Will I say “Because my society was not accepting” or “ Because people around me were too scared that I will ruin my life and career”.
This fear make me want to adopt a baby more. I hope one day soon, I will proudly post a blog showing my adopted baby (ies).
PS: if you are capable of affording a child, please do so. Orphans also deserve a family.
PSS: Please let me know if my decision is okay or should I wait few more years?
The beautiful raindrops are falling from the sky on the trees. The sun, filtering from the sky is touching the leaves, and reflecting back into these wonderful combinations of green, yellow and orange as if the rainbow is reflecting back from the leaf.
This in not a scene from a natural beautiful scenery neither it is the scene from a romantic movie. This is something, which is fascinated by most but is unique to most. This is a stunning form of art which Pakistanis witness every day moving across the roads. This form of art is called “TRUCK ART”, but for the driver, it is their beautiful baby.
Truck Art is an indigenous form of art, which originates from Pakistan. This art combines together the beautiful floral arts, colour designs, poetic calligraphy, portraits of heroes and actors, designed mirrors, jingling bells and tassels and colourful animals. This is why the English names for these trucks became, “Jingling Truck”.
Believe it or not, these vehicle drivers spent from $3000 to $5000 on each vehicle. Why? Because they simply love their vehicle. For them and their family, their vehicle Is their pride, their everything.
Each and every component in these masterpieces contains meaning. Usually, the most common art pieces contain shapes of the peacock, tiger, pigeon etc. Peacock usually presents the beauty of Pakistan, but for their driver, the peacock is the pride for their bus. Pigeons symbolise the peace, harmony and love which also present the personality of the driver.
The arts of each region perfects the beauty of their art in their signature way. Where Rawalpindi uses plastic decoration, Karachi uses reflective tapes which are locally called “Chammak Patti”. The cities like Quetta and Peshawar, which is North of Pakistan, uses wood trimming.
The back of the vehicle is often used to honour and tribute the celebrities.
Truck Art is inspired by all the artist around the world.

Pakistan is a colourful country. The nation who loves playing with all colours around the palette.
