Blogal Remix

I am suffering from looking at objects and persons around me from the point of view of a Blog post. It can be anything, even the Mickey Mouse wearing “lahnga” in the Liberty Market or a Rikshaw Wala talking on latest mobile phone, or even if I am listening to Atif Aslam and a Rikshaw bypasses me with all possible horrifying sounds like khut phut churr pataakhhh put putt ggrrr…so lending me the musical idea of Atif Aslam – Rikshaw Remix, which I can transform into some amalgam later on, as a supporting idea for a post.

Most of the times, I find myself linking one thing or another with LMB postings overwhelmingly. On a drive, at a café, in a bookshop, it happens everywhere. But I end up having a host of ideas, and ONLY one of which makes it to the Blog. The residue remains there in my mind, a remix that never appears on the surface. Side by side, this whole process diverts thinking to be processed from a very different perspective and as a writer, I go out of the horizon and give a look to things objectively from the top, when thinking blogally.

I wonder am I the only one?

    You definitely are not the only one… It happens to me too. For that matter, I always keep the Message Drafts in my mobile phone filled with ideas for blog posts…

    btw, all your mentioned ‘other’ observations qualify to be posted at LMB, especially the Mikey Mouse Lahnga thing! lol

    Ok Kaptaan, soon you gonna have Michky Mouse Featuring Lahori Lehnga on the blog ;)

  3. Faraz (unregistered) on May 26th, 2007 @ 3:10 pm

    offcourse you are the only one….:)

    i mean, a rickshaw remix for atif aslam… now thats something even atif aslam would never have thought of… but now it makes good sense. Maybe someone ought to try it someday :)

    Nooops dear, as your kaptaan sahab says … you’re definitely not the only one …!

    I suffer from this time-to-time too … lol!

    And without muzic, atif is a rickshaw remix :P

    @a4 pie n apple: atif ko kuch nahi kahna :)

    @kaptaan: That micky mouse just vanished from liberty market or at least i was unable to locate him the next day. Jaisay hi milta hay, i will post about him. I wonder if he is a regular reader of this blog ;)

    The post was interesting and more interesting were the comments. :) I really enjoyed reading ’em all.

    No, certainly you’re not the only one. I’ve been into this labyrinth of ideas with the camera in my hand roaming around the streets of Lahore along with our ex-kaptaan (Farhad). With of course ‘Fun’, only some of all the ideas only little of it was transferred or shared on LMB. Even when you’re in restaurant and looking at fork or plate.. or paintings around you wish you have all your LMB friends with you and you could post something and they respond to you right away with loads of comments :) … I absolutely have made up a world around us…

    A fantasy, which we don’t wanna get out of it. We just love it!

    The post is great – and true! :)

    Thank you Opee for understanding the true meaning and the joy of this fantasy…and sharing it with us.

    By the way, in looking at blog today, i imagined all of us@LMB chasing rikshaws, buses, trucks, donkeys and monkeys now a days :)) .Cooool. Bus wo Mickey mouse mil jayeeeeeeeey

    @Faraz: i mean, a rickshaw remix for atif aslam… now thats something even atif aslam would never have thought of..

    Yup, Atif Aslam wouldn’t have ever thought of it but Rikshay wala tow soch sakta hai? :)

  10. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 12:04 am

    @OPee: So now i turned into Rikshay wala :D

    @all: Idea behind rikshaw remix is ….i ment, kuch bhi, imagine any fav song, you are listening to and singing with the singer with full volume and suddenly you get this sound coming slowly towards u pakaaaaakhh…..puttttt tukkh ppuutttt trrrrr…….ttrrr ppprrrr type sounds and it bypasses you , on full threshold,…….so WHAT on the earth would you feel han .. ? :D

  11. Opee (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 12:57 am

    I don’t know how it would feel. But saying: ”
    puttttt tukkh ppuutttt trrrrr…….ttrrr ppprrrr” by your own with a bit loud voice, is pretty funny feeling :D – lol

  12. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:00 am

    lolzz, bus yehi tu.

  13. Opee (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:12 am

    woh bheegi bheegi yaadain… ttrrr ppprrrr..
    woh bheegi bheegi yaadain puttttt tukkh ppuutttt trrrrr.. ttrrr ppprrrr

    – ok ok.. cutting it out! :)

  14. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:15 am


    Goodness, you qualified for the membership of imaginary band, i own :))

  15. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:17 am

    LOL…dhum dhumtruck dhumdhum trucckkkk

  16. Opee (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:36 am

    This is unfair, you quickly jumped from rickshaw to Truck :|

  17. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:39 am


    in fact, this truck version is the height of “fun”(urdu wala). U better stick to rikshaw beats, u need hard work to attain this much height in “fun” to jump onto truck.

    hum kis gali ja rahay hain…….ttttttrrrrr…tarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  18. Hasan Mubarak (unregistered) on June 1st, 2007 @ 1:47 am
