You have an internet connection. You can read English. That places you comfortably in the ‘haves’ of our society. The “have-nots” are not expected to give attention to topics like global warming, recycling, car-pooling and solar energy; food and warmth are needed first.

So you, yeah you, ought to ‘at least’ be thinking about it and perhaps plan on a course of action.

To the best of my limited knowledge, the plan to cut trees along the canal by the government was put on hold mainly because of ‘concerned citizens’ showing collective opposition. It feels good that there are people with their surroundings in mind; in the governement AND in the general society.

So how can you, living right here in third-world Lahore, contribute to your environment? And no, talking and caring about the environment is not gay.

Google and this some school did this great project about coming up with ideas; the initial interest I had was that the project involved Google, it invovled the Internet and it involved community. Environment shinvironment as well. :) peace and look out!

    i don’t mean to be rude, but you really don’t know how to write properly. all your posts have mistakes in them and are about things that have little or nothing to do with lahore, like your “lame joke freudian slip” post and even when you stay on topic (with the canal tree post), you indirectly put down gay people by writing “And no, talking and caring about the environment is not gay.”

    we know what gay is momekh.

    the best (read worst) though, is this new post about religion and “Godly Acts”.


    this is a metblog, not your daily diary. go play good-islamic-girl-suffering-delusions on blogger or orkut, and try keeping this place on topic:

    Allow me to quote you:

    “I can do the ‘individual’ work such as Salat, Fasting and Charity, yes. But ‘spreading the message’ like you mean it, that? Me? But what do I know? Who will listen to me? Why will they listen to me? And there is a reason I am worried that I can’t do it, because I am supposed to do it! It is my duty to spread the word.”

    You sound like you’re talking to yourself, about yourself. You are.

    hehehe… my friend, this is what you say when you don’t mean to be rude?

    But, anyways, I am going to sound a bit rude, but not too much I assure you.

    First thing’s first, you said: “even when you stay on topic (with the canal tree post), you indirectly put down gay people by writing “And no, talking and caring about the environment is not gay.”.

    No, that was quite direct in fact.

    And you need to read a few newspapers, a few columns here and there, you know, just to get you up to speed about ‘writing’ in general. People can and do talk about general stuff as well, including themselves.

    And you told me to “go play good-islamic-girl-suffering-delusions on blogger or orkut”… but I already do that, only that I can’t play the girl part that often, u’know.

    And not directly talking about Lahore makes a post worst? Or is it my writing style that sucks? Any suggestions apart from the ones you have already given?

    Hey! what’s this shit about Global Warning.Yaaaaawwwwn!!!! i’m sick upto my neck of these low-hangin-sliva-drippin-toungue bearer commoners dreaming of overnight riches at cost of my peace of mind.Wanting to pave their way in high sokatee with beady eyes and lowering the temperature with frustrated sighs.It’s funny how people turn to “khissiyani billi” when all their plans of shortcut to the riches are slammed in their face.I think people should consult the “Baji Razia” before enjoying the fruits of love to avoid embarassment later.Charity works where people have their conscience alive.Here if we start social security today the half work force of the country will stop working from the very next day.
    Style ruuuuuulezzzzzz. Cheerios
