This is the 4th time I am visiting Lahore and every time I do, I see great developments. Perhaps Baluchistan too needs someone like Shahbaz Sharif so as to bring some rapid developments in Baluchistan. I am sure hundreds will argue about not having the kind of funds that Punjab receives but what about the funds that Baluchistan do receive ? Where are they ? I have barely seen a slight change. Anyways, I am not in a stage of arguing and feeling pitiful about my Province. Sometimes our people themselves are responsible for their living standards. Accepting Change in conservative societies is not less than the acceptance of being dishonorable for them. So I have stopped worrying about the misery and frustration they go through.
It took me just 15 minutes to go through the liberty market but I just spent a complete hour in the last corner store that was named as “Variety Books”. Infact there was also availability of tea and fries for the customer who wanted to stay for long. I never enjoy any place as much as I enjoy in book stores. I guess its these words filled in the pages of all these books that attracts me…..
About Variety book store in liberty market lahore ! Well !!! the store itself was very expensive and was fooling its customers by showing the correct and low prices in there price tags at the back of books but a higher price of the same book in the computer receipt that they would provide you to pay for. When I checked the computer listed price receipt and the price tags behind the books, 5 books showed higher prices. Which consequently proves that it wasn’t a mistake but a strategy of fooling your customers. I mean no every customer corrects the prices…. Pity ! do I feel for such greed.
Offtopic, But I am not surprised about what Shaista wahidi did in her Morning show. I knew her over confidence will ruin her some day. Many times have I found her unethical and immoral in her talks. Such attitude obviously does not works out for long ! After all, silly talks and actions somehow leads you upside down!
More to come about Lahore….
Although the idea of starting a new blog was decided few months back yet it took me time to understand the wordpress platform including the important plugins used for SEO and the importance of social media in this regard. Yet again thanks to my loving Husband who already had an established system in which I learned to write and understand all the requirement of running a full fledge revenue earning blog with high quality content. I have now finally started a proper hosted blog site with the name of www.econtutorials.com . It is at its infant stage and needs a lot of work to be done. This baby site requires extensive content over the economics that I have studied in these 7 years of my academic and professional life. Off course ! To be honest I wanted to have an attachment with my studies since I have not been reading anything related to my subject and I seriously don’t want to end up with broken concepts. The content will purely be based on conversational style providing easy notes and lectures to all Economics Students and Professionals. This also adds with other subjects of economics including Micro, Macro , Research Methodology , Mathematical Economics and Econometrics as the core ones. An amalgamation of all these subjects with its content and a bit of SEO would very obviously rank the blog site well, for which than I have some other plans ;p
Apart from getting into extensive blogging again (This time I really want to be consistent). My life has turned out to be the busiest after getting married. From guests of Quetta to travelling and exploring new places within and outside Karachi. Meeting new people and much more. The experience was undoubtedly enjoyable and surely would be so in the future as well. Seeing all these people here striving for educational degrees, job shifts and yearning for a better standard of living does gives me some sort of motivation compared to the monotonous that I had back in Quetta. Although family , friends and colleagues are badly missed there regretting the fact that I could tease few of my friends in their engagement ceremony yet life here gives me great peace of mind. I guess one visionary man in your life can change the complete perception towards the way you live yours…And so have I ….
Although I was never able to read Feryal Ali Gauher’s Novel yet after coming across her articles in dawn , I regret doing so. I would probably read her “No Space For further burials” , which is signed by herself and sent to Syed Khalid Iqbal, Director General NAB Balochistan, who later on gave it to me after going through the Seminar of Anti corruption day organized by NAB in Serena Hotel Quetta, 2012 (where Feryal Gauher was also a speaker including Ansar Burney)
Feryal Ali Gauher, the beautiful and elegant lady, who studied from McGill University, a Pakistani Actress, director, writer and human rights activist. She has such an aggressive expression towards the unjust of women to which I believe is very valid. Undoubtedly her words are touchy! When I was reading her “Half the Earth, half the sky “ article in the Advertisement Supplement by Dawn Newspaper for Women’s Day Celebrations. I felt the anger in her words.
I peer out of the jeep’s window and see myself plunging in to the river below, leaving nothing behind, no legacy, no children to grieve for me, no one to sing eulogies, no one to lament, to clear my closets of useless belongings which prop me up in that other life , the one I live amongst the ones who watch me closely, following every move, waiting for me to falter, waiting for moments of frailty….
It is possible to empower the 300 million women around the world who do not have access to safe and affordable family planning, enabling them to control there bodies and their lives, granting them the space to flower in an environment where they have an equal voice, a voice of reason, a voice which speaks in the interest of their fullest human potential, their future, the earth they nurture and the children they bear to walk that long and arduous road.
And her yet another outclass composition on Sunday magazine of Dawn (23,march.2014)about her journey to Chilas, (where the Diamer Basha Dam is Planned) discussing the agony and suppression of women and lowering Maternal Mortality Rates. She persuades her readers towards development and growth of a country through the factor of Education, Safe and Healthy life and a life worth living for us ! These elements though are long-term yet achievable that would consequently lead to a prosperous life….
For such women who has the courage to write these Brutal yet true facts deserves to be applauded highly..
The only advice I could give to every women is to Never stop trying hard for your life because one way or the other , you will find your destination to whatever you have desired for….
Mein Bhi Mazloomi-e-Niswan Se Hun Gham-Naak Bohat
Nahin Mumkin Magar Iss Uqda-e-Mushkil Ki Kushood!
I too feel sad about the oppression of women,
But this knotty problem cannot be resolved.
