Load we share

Mostly artists spend so much time on a single piece of art, they work days and nights to create brilliant masterpieces. Same is the case with writers. When we write, we work hard even on a few lines, we compose ideas, we gather thoughts while drafting a fine piece for our blog. And then what happens in a blink of an eye is “power failure” that makes the Titanic of our creativity sink. Oh, it breaks the momentum in no time and leaves you strained for nothing.

Yesterday, I spent quite some time composing my part of blog and when I was almost smiling while having a final look at my composition, the words disappeared suddenly, leaving a black screen in front of me. My fingers, a little above the keys, jammed there in the air, and my eyes started searching for lost words. But soon I realized that what happened with them, and it was too late for me to take any action, load of creativity was shedding and then stopped. So this small incidence made me think of big loses that people could have, “merey to kuch alfaz hi thay jo kho gaye” (what that was lost, just were my words).

We are expected to have 2-hour load shedding shortly, so many people out there are going to lose one or another thing in this period of time in the absence of electricity. I wonder sometimes, if anyone actually has ever tried to save electricity and water for others?

    yep!
    we do spend a lot of time..
    but a little solution is to use some word processing software and to save your proceedings frequently..
    I know its a bit hectic to press “ctrl+s” again and again, but in MS Word you have an option of autosave. You can have an interval of even 1 minute, viz; your work would be auto saved every 1 minute..

    and about saving the electricity, just w8 for my upcoming post..
    you’ll know how careful we and our goverment is!

    I’ve never been able to re-create any writing lost to power failure as it was written originally.

    I share the loss with you :(

    I can see what you mean… we forget to save an awefully lot of things… power, water, heritage, dignity, democracy, lives… the list goes on…

    @IC: In a broader sense, you can take it like that. But if we can realize, we CAN work for betterment in these areas, there is always a room present for your part of duty. Isnt it so?

    Didn’t anyone mention we have never been even average at saving ‘Nature’

    “time nahi hai” , life is mechanical and man is a machine now, so no one cares about Nature, until Nature hit us hard.

    So true, here in Islamabad at time of real crises in summer, when water is of high importance; I’ve seen people washing cars and giving water in their lawns generously … same goes for other things. Tissues are wasted as if they grow on trees … we are the ppl who think only about ourselves and not the nature.
