ہم اپنی ڈگریاں لے کر ، پیسہ کما کر ، کاروبار بڑھا کر سمجھتے ہیں کہ ہم کامیاب ہو گئے ۔ ۔ ۔ اپنی بے اخلاص نمازوں پر ، بے یقین دعاوُِں پر ، ریاکاری کی ملاوٹ والی خیرات دے کر سمجھتے ہیں کہ بڑے نیک ہیں ۔ ۔ ۔

” یہ لوہاروں کا لڑکا ہم سب پڑھے لکھوں پر بازی لے گیا “

For some time now I have been losing hope for my beloved country Pakistan. News of violance, killings and blasts, karachi is burning, loadshedding, shortage of water, people dying of poverty, hunger, disease ! … when you hear and see such things all around you, it dampens ur mood  and adversly affects ur life and even ur behavior , like slow poisoning  .. you get a light but constant headache .. its not much at start .. but when it lingers for days .. well it is worse then the biggest of headaches!!

But today my friend shared this and it lifted my spirit. It didn’t take away all my sorrows but it gave me something to hold on to .. like a piece of wood in middle of a sea storm … it gave me HOPE ! … hope for pakistan , my beloved homeland ❤
