same old story

Posted by in Thoughts

another resolution that i will try to blog more, there is enough topics to talk about but i guess making time for such posts is the actual issue. Thre are enough rants that i can have but the problem is if it is a even worth it to post them or just keep them within me. I never get it when people post every min of their lives online, every meeting with someone is posted with the picture on facebook or twitter. I prefer the life of anonymity, where i…read more

NYPD spied on Muslim Student … REALLY

Posted by in Thoughts

Am I even surprised about this, this goes on as a norm in the American Society and there is no qualms about it, be it the constitution or any other law. As the laws are different for the poor or the second class citizens, the same is true for laws regarding terrorism. If the rich can get away with murder and minorities get stuck with long sentences for simple crimes, the same can be said about Muslims rights being trampled upon in the name of National Security. Before there was…read more

There was a time

Posted by in Thoughts

There was a time when i couldn’t afford khakis from Walmart and was so happy that i was able to buy my self pants or clothes once. SubhanAllah, there is so much that i don’t thank Allah for, his blessings are numerous and i am un thankful. I pray to him that he makes me a better person and gives me the ability to thank him more often than i do now. Inshallah and Ameen.

September 11 2011 (My day)

Posted by in Thoughts

It has been 10 years and I would rather forget that day but I still do remember quite a lot of things that happened on that day. It was a normal day for me and I was driving to work in Arlington (less than a Mile from Pentagon). While driving i got a text message from my roommate that a plane had crashed into the world trade center. I thought it must be some drunken Wall Street guy in a Cessna and ignored the importance of that event. By the…read more

Karachi and Pakistan (A Solution)

Posted by in Pakistan, Politics, Thoughts

When we hit a 1000 dead then maybe we will do something about it. Until then we will just sit and watch. I don’t get it, Pakistan as a nation had become so ineffective that we can’t even fix our own house. I think the word castrated comes to mind. Our Armed forces can’t deal with the issues of security, Pakistani people are confused about whom to ask for help, we hate American help but can’t live without it. It is like a drug addict in denial that he/she is…read more

How long can we wait (A view from over there)

Posted by in Current Affairs, Pakistan, Thoughts

Pakistan needs to be liberated, either by hook or crook, in my opinion either the Libyan style rebellion or a saner solution which I think is Imran khan. There is a lot of talk about Imran khan right now; his popularity is increasing much to the dismay of Zardari-Sharif and Co. But there are many who still doubt his leadership and qualities. You can always find plenty of articles or news segments about him in negative light from various news outlets, some call him a Taliban Sympathizer or some call…read more

Intelligence not required

Posted by in Thoughts

I am a bad exam taker; I have had times when I have left exams without writing a single word on the paper because I couldn’t BS my way through it. I have always been in awe of people who are able to do exams and score well. I don’t know what my problem is but it surely is a problem. I have been struggling with a preliminary exam for some time. This December the window into that exam will close also and might never open again. If I fail…read more
