Students from National College of Arts are presenting their final thesis for the year. I would really love to go there and have a look. I feel, works of fresh artists is more original in all respects. Click the image for more details.

what the hell is wrong?

Okay, let’s set the record straight. Can anybody please tell me what the hell is wrong here in Lahore? Nobody here seems to be working, nor they like. What they love is getting paid for nothing. Even after paying huge sums in service fees and other bullshits, you actually have to do what is called tarlay karna.

I pay thousands of rupees monthly to the DHL Lahore and still they somehow seem to be the biggest suckers in the whole city. Every once in a while there’s a delayed shipment, and the bastards at their customer care department don’t inform. You got to choke them yourself. They are always scared of customs for no apparent reason and behave like school kids, pointing out one tihng or another. Their customer care beats the hell out of you. I’m sick of these people. ye to inn kay corporate office ki halat hai!

I was so sick of them that I decided to go with FedEx instead for my business shipments. Can you imagine these FedEx people have given the parking space in front of their office on contract. It’s not even their space; you refuse to pay and they won’t allow to park. Customer care.. what the hell these guys know about dealing with customers? I went there thrice (yes, their corporate office in Gulberg) and every time there was none of sales/marketing person present. I doubt if they ever come to office. I’m not gonna deal with such a company.

Yeh Hai Star!

When many of us are complaining for the most recent ban on Indian channels including Star Plus and Sony, people in my society are quite indifferent. We are not having Star Plus shown but can watch KBC2 and all other soaps.

The Cable Operator’s launched a new channel named MAX whose logo’s placed right in place of the Star Plus logo, hiding it successfully and providing the locals with the scheduled entertainment of “Saas Bhi Kabhi Bhaoo Thi”, as Opee calls it right, type of Soaps with ultra-local adds…

Who’s being fooled??

After a while….. you learn!

After awhile you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.
And you begin to understand that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head held high and your eyes wide open.
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child.
You learn to build your roads
On today because tomorrow’s ground
Is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in midflight.
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate Your own soul, instead of waiting For someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure,
That you really are strong.
And you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn…and you learn
With every goodbye you learn.

where in lahore?

hmm…this is easy!


KBC fever and something on Indian (Bollywood) Actors from Lahore

Some actors occupy the state; few rule it. Some actors hold an audience; few possess it. Some actors light up a scene, few ignite the entire film. These combustible few blaze with extraordinary factors of acting-intensity,
intelligence and authority. There is a charisma apart from the role itself and when, they tread the screen, the co-stars are as mesmerized as the audience. Though Paki people are so so far away from Indians in many senses. But I could never understand (and actually interestingly became crazy to see) why a small girl from Lahore can be so much emotionally attached to the infamous Amitabh Bachan aka Ameet ji. The girl that happens to be my cousin sister, a Lahori school going kid at just the age of 12, a mind-bogglingly drowned under Start Plus craze had kept her screen name on her MSN as: Please pray for


A big round of applause for the batch of 2005, who graduated today! Yeaaay! May there always be stars to guide your way to beautiful things :)

Beyblade Fever

It was the first time that DAWN Lifestyles included a Beyblade battle arena with young boys being crazy with those rounding “Luttoos”. Btw, Luttoos were not that much popular in our days.


“Can you spin it??”
