A girl was born and at that time nobody thought that she will grow up to be an amazing lady and that she will change the world of many people around her. That girl happens to be my mom today. I don’t know what you say about the person who has always been there for you, tolerated your crap and actually gave a shit about you. No matter what I do, she is always there for me. When I was little, people asked, who do you love more or who is more amazing? I always replied without thinking, My Dad. Now when someone asks the same stupid question, I reply, Can you choose between a Mercedes Meclaren F1 and a Ferrari 458? No you can not. Because they are both awesome and breath taking. Same is the case with my mother and father.
She is heaven on earth. She is like the rainbow which comes out after the rain. Just like the rainbow consoles the sky after getting wet by the rain, she consoles me after I fight with my friends or get lousy grades. Ofcourse she yells and shouts first. Difference is, a rainbow has seven colours in it. My mom has millions of colours in her. She is like a fully bloomed rose whose fragrance makes you crazy even from a mile. She is like this Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume whose scent is still in your clothes even after you have washed it.
I remember how she didn’t give my class the Best Decorated Class Of The Year Award because she was the judge and I happened to be her daughter. How she always calls me a crazy mentally ill person infront of my friends. How she scolds and lectures a kid she doesn’t even know on the importance of studies. People make friends in a few minutes, she makes friends in a few seconds. She is so full of life and such a lively person. Everyday I look at her and think how lucky I am to have her in my life.
Today is her Birthday. We all surprized her by baking a Giant Cookie and topping it with all kinds of stuff. Well technically Moawiz had already told her.
Hundreds of drewdrops to greet the dawn.
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover.
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn.
But only one mother the wide world over.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!! The Most Amazing and Extraordianry Lady I have ever met. I am PROUD to be your daughter.
Whenever I look out of my bathroom’s window, I see the moon smiling at me, sometimes giving me a wide grin, sometimes just a tiny smile. After having a bad day or a good one, when I look at the moon and its different faces, each one more beautiful than the other, I forget the entire bad day or I remember every single detail of the good one.
People say that the moon just looks beautiful from far, but when you go near it all you see is the ugliness, all the spots and bends in it. But thats not what I think. It depends on what you see and how you see it. I think that the moon is beautiful, inside out. Like all of us, it has its fall outs and back draws but thats what makes the moon what it is today, Pure and Beautiful.
You know, in ancient times, moon was used as a navigator. All the sailors and travelers used to find their way, whether at the sea or in the desert, because of the moon. It is said that you can never loose your way and get lost if you follow the moon. Whenever moon didn’t use to come out, all the sailors and travelers used to be lost. Moon was the torch and the light which showed them their way. They depended on the moon to come out and show them the way on dark nights.
We all are like a moon. We all depend on someone to show us the way. Whether it is happiness, success, trust, friendship, hope, belief or love. We don’t want to loose our way, so we follow our moon not to get lost in the darkness of the world. Thing is that simultaneously, we all are the moon too. We don’t know this but we are the moon for someone. Somewhere, someone depends on us to give happiness, to share success, to trust and be trustworthy, to make friends and be a good friend, to hope, to believe in yourself and others. We will never get lost just like the sailors and travelers, if we all follow our moons. And we wouldn’t let someone else loose their way if we be the moon. So I say, Be The Navigator that shows someone the right path, Be The Light that gives someone hope, Be The Smile that lits up someones face, Be The Moon that makes someone believe. BE THE MOON.
I think when you have the potential to do lot and when Allah gives you so much. Then a person does not regards those things and wastes it. I know that I have a lot of talents and I am capable of doing a lot. Alhumdulilah. I am not bragging. I just don’t know what to do with them. Its like I am wasting my life. I want to do something useful with it. Something bigger than being a doctor. Although I have no idea what profession I will choose, one thing I am sure about is that I want to be a writer and write a book someday. I want people to feel the passion in my writing. I want them to be inspired by it. Like today I am inspired by a lot of peoples writing. I don’t want people to pick up my book, read it and put it down. No, I want them to read it, feel the passion and inspiration, get up and do something positive and always remember the passion and inspiration they felt by reading my book. I think thats all for today.
Finished reading My Feudal Lord by Tahmeena Durrani. I was actually waiting to read it but after finishing it I didn’t like it that much. Tahmeena has exposed the feudal system in Pakistan. Not that there was any need of doing that because people know how politics is. But then I guess not all of them do. Some of them are blinded by the fake promises that politicians make. In her autobiography, she has written about all the bad things that she herself did. The worse part is that after admitting that, she justified her misdoings. I don’t think that having an affair while married to a very nice guy is justifiable. How can you say that you fell for another guy because you never had a childhood and you only married your husband to get away from your mother? That you never really loved him. That it was just an illusion. Okay. We do wrong things all the time. But when we are accepting them, then there is no need to justify your actions. You know you did wrong. End of discussion.
She describes her 14 year marriage life period with Mustafa Khar as a very tragic experience. It is a story of corrupt politicians and their lives. How politics eats up families. How it destroys your relationships. Takes away your beliefs and in the end you are left with nothing. Politics is like this marsh in which you just go on and their is no way out. Its this addiction like alcohol or cigarettes.
But I have to say, the woman had great power to do what she did. To raise a voice among the people she lived in. Her journey began from Lahore, took her to the dirty streets of Kot Addu, then the country side of England, even in politics to save her husband, more like herself and it took her back to where it all had began, Lahore, the City Of Lights. She still remains the elegant, sophisticated and beautiful lady she once was.
Isn’t this quote true? I have always believed that it is upto you to live a happy life. Life gives you hard times all the time. The trick is to live such that you not only get past all the hurdles but do it with a smile on your face. Our personalities reflect our behaviour and then ofcourse how we live our lives. We don’t have to live our life in misery. We can find happiness even in that misery. It is upto us to live a happy life or a miserable one. Indeed happiness is you.Happiness is us.
