"Ok guys, good news! I've brought my laptop and speakers" announced the guy from Islamabad. All excited, he took his laptop, connected the speakers and started playing that really torturous i-am-urban-and-i-listen-to-english-music sound. I wonder if everyone from Islamabad is such an eccentric, listening to English music, watching bizarre serials, using products and brands that are hard to find anywhere else but good old 'Isloo'. And when the show-off session approaches the end, they start whining about how they miss Isloo. Pathetic!
What bugs me most is the huge deal it is for an Islamabadite to stay in a town a little more than hundred kilometers away; that how is our town so disparate from Islamabad? Fine, understood that they have better roads which we don't, they have cabs instead of our rickshaws and yup, they have the advantage of calling themselves the citizens of the capital, yet it remains inexplicable how can they listen to such repugnant music and watch boring movies without songs.
Its not that we don't listen to English music, we know all the big stars, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, that Enrique guy, that Hanna Montana girl, that GaGa woman, to name a few, but we prefer the new Atif Aslam song featured in that new Katrina movie. Weird thing is that not only is this Isloo-baby oblivious and uninformed about that Atif Aslam song, but he gives you disparaging looks if you mention that you know all the superstars like Britney and Boyzone.
He also mentioned that he worked on a radio station back there in Islamabad. I reckon it was something… 94… yeah, PlanetFM94. That is where he plays all that torturous – what he calls – music. But who knows, maybe the sort of music that we listen to is equally detestable to him. Maybe his thoughts reciprocate what we perceive about his ideas and tastes.
I wonder if the personalities diverge to such an extent as you travel along the GT Road, and with those personalities vary the choices in music. But this divergence itself is not the question. The question is how these differences signify? Does this individual choice of music enrage itself into a violent clash of ideology or transform into something productive, positive exposure maybe. Does this difference encourage enmities or does it persuade more tolerance. I really can't say about everyone, but maybe we should go for the latter. Maybe different music isn't that big a deal. Maybe we should give people more space and maybe, we should listen to and accept, rather enjoy each others' music.

Newtons 3rd law states "every action as a equal opposite reaction". I wonder if this applies to people?! Most of us just run through life regardless of the route we take just too focused on the destination. Well lemme pop your bubble, the only destination in our lives is at the end of it; the grave! Life itself is a journey, sure there are pit stops but a journey that starts at birth and ends at death. Its this journey that makes us who we are and who we become.
Karma does have a little play in our lives. its simple really if your nice to someone someone is gonna be nice to you. Sure there are some pricks you cross that u really wanna beat up but the smart thing to do is just let it go because he's gonna get his from someone some where.Same goes for the principle of helping people. Don't help people because you have to, help em because you want to.
It doest matter who your helping or if the person is great full. Just help him because its gna come back to you in a good way. We all have to strike a balance, nature itself fights for balance so rest assured whatever you do in life its gna come back some way :) ; good or bad depends on what ou did.

Smile as they say is that a curve that set many things straight.That smile is always an asset when its on your lips and an achievement when it's on someone else's becuase of you. Lets take a moment and think about all the times that we made others smile. Doesn't a chill go down your spine when you see all those smiling faces in your closed eyes and giving you such a sense of achievement knowing that you were a reason for it.
Smile is an amazing gesture, the simplest one but the most effective. So if you haven't smiled today as yet do it right now because we all look better when we smile.
Even though this is something that is pretty much talked about all the time everywhere but I just felt the need because it is not too long ago when it struck me and I ended up questioning myself as to what was the last time I was the reason for this particular gesture on someones face that we call smile.
Really hope that this question starts poping up in most of our minds, because if we take up this responsibilty of spreading smiles around us, then welfare would a mere understatement to describe our society.

'Gone'; a word tossed around a bit too much. Its probably just standard English but it means a bit too much!.. it could mean an action a verb if u will or merely the absence of someone. The passing of someone.
Funerals are always sad, you just cant help it but think that you might be next. Some of them just bring the ugly out others however; more constructive. Someones death just might bring you closer to someone else or maybe just deepen some cracks. Its really up to you for that matter.
Its an odd feeling laying someone in their grave. You cant really understand whats going on but you can realize that your time is gonna come so better shape up or just start digging.
Some realities of life just cant be escaped. The world is a yard sale; everyone must go.
