Nearer to my God

Enjoy the rhythm and the tune and the feeling that you're closer to God more than you would ever think. :)


Symbolism in doors

Image
Have you ever wondered what went behind the mind of a human being in the creation and installation of doors in buildings? Me neither. Seems obvious doesn't it. That where there should be a place, building or a boundary, there should be a door.

But lets think about this, what created the need for such a thing? I will tell you a story ...

In the beginning of times when humans were scarce and small in number. They never really cared about doors or windows. They were happy living in their caves and trees. Sometimes they had to scare off animals and had to light fires outside to keep animals at bay. Then as the time passed on humans started covering up their entrences with wooden or stone slabs at nights to protect themselves in a better manner from threats.

Lets shed some more light on the word threat.


A statement of an intention to inflict pain, injury, damage, or other hostile action on someone in retribution for something done or not...: "the family has received death threats&…

I would give up my Hummer

Image
We hear so much, give this up in the name of your Lord. Give that up. Etc Etc. Well I was thinking that  even though I don't have one but I would like to give up my Hummer in the name of God.

What I would like to do is purchase a brand new one, all shiny and black with a shade of red in it. Drive it like crazy on top of hills and rocks and really wreck it. Run it into walls, hills, barricades and what not. I mean like really do things that are unimaginable with a vehicle such as a hummer.

Then once its really wrecked and the chesis is out of shape then shower patrol on top of it and light it up. There goes my sacrifice in the name of Lord. Take my sacrifice my Lord I did it all for you. The fire lit in background with hummer burning and exploding in the darkness of the night is a symbol of the Lord's light and fire burning in my heart. It's the Lord doing His work in me and I am lit in his fire. Burning and being consumed.

There goes the new Hummer up into the smoke as it…

Is FaceBook for ever?

Image
The answer is obvious isn't it? We all know it. But still at the moment it is one of the biggest things on the internet and there is no shaking it. Tell you the truth, I myself being a small blogger and a sunday web developer am a bit jealous of the whole facebook ordeal. Why should one guy have so much fame anyway? haha, but that's not the topic here.

What I'm contemplating about here is that above all things, will facebook prove to be a lovely social media companion for the up coming ages? Or is it going to turn into just another stock pile of dirt what people faintly remember about but don't really bother to clean and look over again.

Thing is that, technology keeps on changing and people do so too. In the start there were emails. Then there was chat. While both those things are still with us but we wanted something else. We had buillten boards, forums and now it has come down to facebook. What if there is a leap into future and someone pulls out a new rabbit from …

Are you In Jail?

Image
Jail: A place for the confinement of persons in lawful detention, especially persons awaiting trial under local jurisdiction. Consider yourself walking down the street thinking what you should do today. You think about different options that you have, going to eat somewhere, finishing up on your work, going for exercise, meet your parents etc etc. You have some options, then you start filtering out the less important ones from the more necessery ones. Finishing up your work, have to go to the office tommorow. You're answerable to someone. So you weigh out the possibilities and in the end go on to do something that the situation has forced upon you rather than what you want to do yourself.  Life if we look upon it on the whole is a bunch of random actions that we do out of necessity and situation. All the time we are trying to get control over things when things are actually controlling us. Our actions are always marginalized when we think about the outcomes in terms of availing ou…

Who are we trying to please?

With the advent of Ramazan, people stop consuming food throughout the day. Suddenly become religious and adhere to everything and anything that is remotely is lines to religious conundrum. All of a sudden everybody is a good human and even a sudden thought of doing something awefully remote that is out of the scope of religion becomes such a vanity in the eyes of others.


Ramazan, such a blessing for us lets us be free of the sinful lives we have been living the whole year and now we are good human beings. We are suddenly in a shell packed with all the good and all the bad is no where to be found in the new boundary that we have set up in our life. This goes on till the end of the month. Slowly and maturely people start getting tired of the continous labour with no supplication to provide them energy throughout the day.


Some of them start missing Travih's which they pledged to never miss ever in their lives again in the start of Ramazan. People start longing for the days when ther…

Comó quisiera poder vivir sin ti?

Image
Sin ti mi vida es incompleta. Pero yo entiendo tu tienes muchos amigos y probablemente un novio o esposo. Tu no necesitas la compaña mia. Esta bien pero duelo mucho mi corázon cuando me pieñsas sobre tu.

Algunos tiempos yo quiero muerte. Yo no tengo un ambicion en mi vida sin ti. mi vida es una carretera sin coches y pueblo.


Things move on so fast

You look here and you look there Somewhere close to you but not there Fine day it is for work you swear Still you think that life is not fair I got to get up and set my hair Call my office maybe they wont care Call in sick and just relax on my chair I do nothing isn't that my common affair :)

Pakistan won the Asia Cup Final .. by mistake!

Image
No where in the game till the last bowl did Pakistan look like a winning combination by any means possible. There seemed to be no real dedication in the players and the whole outlook of the team was simply lazy. Just like Misbah ul Haq the current Captain of the team.

Leaders are so important in any field of life and the whole Pakistani Cricket Board is filled with uneducated and incapable people who don't know anything about management and discipline.

I don't know who thinks Pakistan has a very good playing unit. There are so many players in the team that are not fit for cricket at all or at least for one day cricket. I always thought Misbah isn't a good option for one day cricket. Same goes for Younis Khan. I don't know why they keep him around in the team anyway?


Younis Khan has only managed to score 6 fifties in 2011 out of 24 innings. He hasn't scored a hundred. Which shows that all of his knocks were pretty ordinary. He comes in to chip in for some balls. Mo…

Ancient Mariner by Coleridge

Image
Sometimes I think that we give old poems too much importance simply because they have gotten popular over time. We should consider the fact that most writers writing something quite extraordinary, in other words, a word that is out of the norm and not ordinary might just be having a fit of anger or hillucinations when they were writing something that we now think is quite inspirational.

I think Coleridge had a really twisted mind and could have been crazy as well to imagine such things as he did in the poem 'Ancient Mariner'. A mariner having to tell a story to any apointed man he sees otherwise he will feel a huge burden over his soul that he cannot encumber at all? Spirits coming from water into the bodies of dead crew and sailing the ship? Huge bird, the Albatross attacking and eating all what they had and the Mariner killing it then feeling guilty for it?

The whole thing shows how twisted his mind was once he was writing this poem. Probably he was disturbed to such e…

Reaching for the Moon

Image
There are times when I am sitting and your thought comes to mind. I know it has been so long and you might not even know where I am, if I ever existed. But my heart reaches for you whenever your thought comes to my mind.

I wish I had magic, I wish I had some power over you or this world to change things the way I wanted to. I wish I could get close to you, like I wished, like you probably wished once too even for a little while. Even though I know how things are, life is real, it's not about dreams but still I like to dream.


If I ever find you back into my life, if you ever catch my sight even for a while, I hope it lasts forever. Even if it doesn't I will make it last inside me as long as I am alive.
