Do your bit!

30 Mar

An attack launched at the Manawan Police Training Center near Lahore by unknown terrorists has left 25 injured and 20 policemen have lost their lives. Some bulletproof vehicle, have been sent to the training institute to recover the dead bodies.

The Heavily armed terrorists, some wearing police uniforms are still inside the building. And the gun battle is still going on. Police and the Army Rangers have circled the building. Tear gas shells are being thrown inside the building.

Yes another attack on our Nation has left us dumbfounded, again! A sad sight! No need to feel crippled by the fear, we need to stand boldly and face the situation.  We salute our Police, Army Rangers and all Armed forces, May God be with them.

Why all of this is happening, who are the dark forces behind it, what are the root causes is a different debate altogether. Now for the current situation that we’re into, people like me are just sitting at home, watching the news. So, the least we CAN do is make dua and never doubt it’s powers— seek help/protection from the Almighty Allah. The One with all the powers. He who is exalted in power, Wise.

Recite Aayat Kareema as much as possible.
Aayat kareema with translation

Make 2 nafil Namaz-e-hajat.
Keep praying to Allah!

So, Pakistani’s can we do this?
Yes we can!
Yes we can!

Do your bit!


26 have passed away, 90 injuired, and 4 Terrorists have been captured.

According to news correspondents who are inside premises of the Academy, commandos of elite force and army have captured the terrorists alive. After clearing the compound and arresting the terrorists, the commandos fired in jubilation and screams of “Allah Akber” and “Pakistan Zindabad” could be heard all over.

The gun-battle which begun at 7:30 in the morning came to an end at 3:30 pm. Our brave, praise worthy Police officers and other Law enforcement agencies have taken charge of the premises of the training center. 4 terrorists have been killed, some have been arrested and the rest committed suicide. 🙂

We have won the battle.

Jazak Allah khair, sun ker kushi hoee 🙂
Subhan Allah!

Book Fair ends today

18 Feb

Yes, the 23rd Lahore International Book Fair at Fortress stadium, Lahore ends today. It would be nice of you to step out of our cave and go buy some books before you go into hibernation again :p Heh! well who am i sass you, i found about the Book Fair yesterday 🙂 But as soon as i found about it, i didn’t waste much time and within an hour, i was among “The Fair people” 🙂 hoping to find something to grab their interest. People who had already targeted what they were looking for quickly moved from one section to the other, passing all sort of  books neatly placed on a table, in wooden wall shelves and metal staLahore International Book Fair 2009nds.

This Book Fair has been organized by the LIBF trust.

The LIBF Trust was set up in 2006 by four leading members of the book trade in Pakistan. They are: Zubair Saeed, Najam Sethi, Saleem Malik and Mohammad Faisal.

The aims and objectives of the LIBFT, which is a non-profit NGO, are to promote the cause of book publishing, book selling and book reading in the country.

I bought two books for myself, one one  Cocktails and other solely about Chocolate deserts. 🙂 If only i had more time i wanted to buy more on science and literature, maybe drawing, but alas! Only visited half of it and it was time to go, had to leave with a thought of coming back today insha Allah and who knows, i just might go there again. Because the place is worth the time, a nice clean place with decent people walking around all sort of books some even on 10-30% discount. I took some pictures of the fair and would have taken more, if only those darn batteries hadn’t died.

Books books everywhere!


I’m sure you would take some time out of your oh-so-ever-busy-time to visit and hopefully find something of your interest and worth the bucks 🙂 Ask for me I’m already looking forward to the next years Book Fair!

Happy Reading folks!

Wo load shedding kia hoee?

7 Feb

Man! it’s been more than forty eight hours now and no load shedding. It kinda feels weird in an absolute ear-to-ear smile kinda way 🙂 Wonder what’s going on. Haven’t heard anything from the government though.

Right before this absolutely No-load shedding, light used to go out for two hours after every hour but, now no nothing, it’s not that I’m complaining, i don’t see anything to complaint now 🙂 but just thinking out aloud as to, what exactly happened here. How in earth did our government manage to accommodate the whole Punjab or maybe the whole country i don’t know all of a sudden, just like that. hmmm

Well what ever happened to all the energy crises,
I’m lovin’ it. 🙂
