Cause of death: Stupidity!


The post-mortem report issued after the extinction of mankind, will state cause of death as stupidity. Why? Because, despite being un-quantifiable, stupidity is very easily identifiable in words and deeds, and indeed it is the leading cause of termination of life.

آؤ بچو سیر کرائیں تم کو پاکستان کی۔


میں جب بھی رب کا شکر ادا کرنا چاہتا ہوں تو سب سے پہلے اس بات کا شکرگزار ہوتا ہوں کہ اس بے نیاز ذات نے مجھے پاکستان جیسے عظیم ملک میں پیدا کیا۔ پاکستان وہ خوبصورت باغ ہے جس میں پھولوں کی تعریف تب ہوتی ہے جب وہ مرجھا جائیں۔ ہم ان بیہودہ اقوام کی طرح نہیں جو مرجھائے ہوئے پھولوں کی قدر نہیں کرتیں۔ ہم تو پودا لگاتے ہی اس لئے ہیں کہ وہ مر کے دائمی حیات پائے۔

Country roads take me home


Back in the days, nursery and primary school curriculum included a lot of poems, but the best of the best was:
Rain, rain go away,
Come back again some other day,
Little me wants to play.

ابھی نہیں، تو کبھی نہیں۔۔۔





TV ads influence people's linguistic trends. In countries like Pakistan, where language has least preference, when it comes to betterment, such advertisement trends, which propagate linguistic distortion are as dangerous as threats of terrorism.

Beheading human rights - What kind of world are we living in?


Although I am a strong opponent of drawing definitive lines along the vectors of good and bad, but sometimes you need to have some idea of the differences between right and wrong.
I have written earlier about my disappointment in the Nobel Award Committee’s incompetence, after they blessed Barrack Hussein Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize.
