On The Dark Side


The word humanity has now been replaced with brutality. It has been known that, humans are like animals except that they possess an organ called the “brain” which is far more efficient than other creatures. Though with time it has also been proven that humans are not just ‘like’ animals but that they ‘are’ savagely zoological.

The reason I highlighted the brain is because how often, do we proud humans make worthy use of it? Brains teach people to read, write and invent which is appreciable. Now the same agent is also enabling humans destroy other humans merely for power which is worldly and will not accompany us in the hereafter.

Brutalism is at its peak all over the world. The Israel-Gaza war is a recent case in point which has caused deaths with such savageness that the mind also finds hard to comprehend. Regardless of logical reasons, whatever the conflict started over had nothing to do with Gazan children and women. Why didn’t the battle take place at a battle field? Is it justified to throw bombs on people’s residences, kill the unborn in their mother’s womb, execute the children and deprive Palestine of an entire generation?

Brutality has become so widespread that it is now passable by people.Though mass social media declaring “I support Gaza” did reflect strong support on part of the common people, but all the Middle Eastern power greedy nations were quite when the cries of Gazan children echoed, no Muslim countries apart from a couple sent aid to their fellow Muslim brothers.

Lust for power has destroyed homes and lives but what desirous leaders tend to ignore is that what happened at Gaza might someday happen to the same country that they rule at the moment.

Same is the case of my motherland, Pakistan. Suicide attacks, murders, target killings of innocent individuals has now become so common that we Pakistanis don’t panic at all after hearing such dreadful news on the television. People don’t find anything new ,” it’s a routine that that ten to twenty people die on the streets of Pakistan” says a man who comes home exhausted after work, sitting in front of the television fulfilling his political curiosities while listening to talk shows.

Such responses show that people have become immune to this extreme exposure of brutality. It has become inadequate to treat such things as a sign of danger. The criminal series very popular on television these days further become encouraging for ruthless people. They teach creative murder techniques and appealing handsome criminals who seem to be so intelligent that people feel attracted to such characters of the play.

Trust me all of this is not cool at all. I hope and pray that people take a brave stand against these savage criminals and may God melt the hearts of those who have become frozen with complacency.  Let’s make the world, which is only a place of temporary existence, a place where people can live in harmony and die a natural death with relief.



Inspirations In Sunset


The positive sensation that this time of the day clasps is incomparable to anything during the whole day, no matter how amusing your time at work or school was this last hour of the sun’s descending carries its own uniqueness. For me, sitting under the scarlet sky, sipping refreshing green tea, and on top of that, holding a piece of paper and a pen ready to spill my thoughts over, is a perfect way of doing justice with it.

My balcony glows with a spectrum of different alluring colors and ecstasies at the moment. When I raise my head I see the vault of heaven, like a deep blue ocean with no sea creatures but merely some jelly fish scattered in the form of clouds, adding elegant touch to it. It is so inspiring to just stare right at God’s creation and enjoy the pleasure free of cost. The birds with their feathers wide open, pierce the thin moist air, and return back home. Perhaps they bring something back along with them to surprise their little ones left in the nest all day.

As I look towards the West, the sky seems springing into bright colors, it goes from blue to peach to very bright orange and then finally to dull yellow where the actual rounded mass is stored. All day this same source of energy had been affecting nature’s activities, may it be human or other creations of God. Like an exhausted person returns back home dull and tired, the sun after a whole day of work is declining into the horizon with low intensity and showing how feeble it has become . All day our routine revolved along with the sun’s position, the time it ascended in to the sky we also got up from our beds. Then came the evening when the intensity of the sun blazed right on our heads and our level of activity was high too.  Now finally when its setting, our tasks of the day have also come to an end and we return home with either yields or debts.

All of this comes down to one thing, that we ignore many things in our lives which can inspire us utmost and affect us in ways unprecedented. Even if it is the sun that shows up every morning. What if it doesn’t show up tomorrow? Think about that and seize the day, capture every moment and take inspiration from every minor fragment of nature that is present around you. The ball is in your court and it is where you throw it that matters. If you fall down, stand up again, luminous like the evening sun. There will be times when you will be knocked down but don’t forget that the night is not meant to scare you, the sun still illuminates the moon leaving no doubts about its existence. It will come back the next day, the sun retains its remembrance through the moon. Don’t forget to be the sun that sets everyday yet manages to rise up again. KEEP INSPIRING 😀
