Equally important fact to think about

Many people live their lives on principles which they inherit from their elders and from society they have lived in. These principles can be from a religion,society or human made. Principles are the core for living a disciplined life and acting is important to fulfils these principles. Heard from someone that principles are one of the main ingredient which makes a human life better than animal.

There are many people who do not bother or get time to think about the purpose of life and what will happen after death. This has become more as a tradition which is being followed by majority of human beings now. Humans are born, first they learn from their homes or places they live in their childhood and then from the surroundings they live their rest of lives. Some people say that they have been unlucky as they have more responsibilities or conditions in their lives which made them act in ways which is not acceptable by any human or society. And others say they are lucky and happy with the life they have. We all are some how forced to make our minds to think in a direction which make us act and live our lives according to some principles which might not be acceptable in all societies.

The number of years we are going to live is not known to any of us. People are perfectly healthy and the next moment news of their death comes. On the other hand, there are people who are ill with deadly disease and the very next day news of their good health comes. In any case, one day all of us will die. And I believe that we need to spare some time, if not possible every day then at least once in a week to research on this very important fact of life.

We are so busy in making our life better by switching jobs, opening new businesses or moving to new places etc. We should also not forget about the life after death. Instead of only living and leading a life with principles that we have learnt from our surroundings, it is wise to keep doing research by reading books of knowledge that are there for many years, discussion with people who claims to have knowledge, by thinking about facts and figures which will keep increasing our knowledge.All this will help us in reaching conclusions which are wise and meaning full.  

Internet is one of the greatest invention of out time but sadly information that we see on Internet is not always authentic and true. So in addition to doing research on, we should also read books of  knowledge that can found in big libraries or book stores.

Yes I know, as I already said we are so busy with our lives these days that we hardly get time to do these things. However, trust me it is not impossible. And don't forget that its is equally important to think about life after death than live here on earth.

Some facts of life

After a long time I decided to add another post in my blog. during this time I have gone through some real changes in my life. Luckily I am free from some serious issues which were bottleneck to progress in my career and family life. At the end I was able to gather few thoughts that I hope will be agreed upon by all my readers.

Life is started for every child with some beautiful things that are responsible for making his/her life better. My life also started with a loving father,mother,sisters and brother. I am the youngest brother and son so I always got the main attention at home by everyone.I was the one left at home when my elder brother left for higher education. Now it has been about 13 years I left my home and living a life away from family.

If I try to collect all the fruitful things that has happened in my life so far are because of my family. I have realized one thing that people in our family are the only beings who are always with us when there are bad times. They put all there energies and power to make our lives better. No matter whether it is money,power or moral support. We will never find people who are also there for us in bad times no matter how bad it is and will try their best to take us out of trouble no matter how long it takes.

I thank to God and pray for the people who don't have anyone for there support in this world. Life is not at all that easy as we see it in our homes in childhood. It is full of  pain.

 It is our decisions that make our lives better.There is fate for everyone but also freewill is in power of every individual. Taking the right decision and making the right move is something that counts.

It is said by Hitler,which I strongly believe and try to follow. "Think billion times before making a decision but never back off after making decision."

May God help us to make the right decisions and give us the courage to stand on our decisions once we have taken it.

Mentality of some of our status conscious people

Some people which majority are ladies are very status conscious, my ladies readers, please no offense, its just what I have observed in my life. It is said in words of wisdom that it is good to live a life according to your social status but ignoring some important factors like health, our own impression in front of other people that includes children and other people feelings etc. leads to a society with people who waste most of their brain in doing destructive activities.

People who belong to such a society always say to eat meat, chicken, BBQ, grilled food instead of eating vegetables and lentils. And they say that this should be followed specially when we are in some social gathering like with friends, wedding ceremony or some occasional gathering because they think that people who eat vegetables, lentils are not appropriate to sit with so called high class people. Where in fact vegetables and lentils have same food nutrients as in meat and also keep us away from many dangerous diseases like cancer. Meat and vegetables both are necessary for health and if this is kept in mind, instead of worrying about what other people will think of us, is a very creative step for us and for our society. 

Such people say to drink soft drinks like Pepsi, Cocacola, Marinda, 7up, Sprite and Fanta instead of fresh water. Well dear for your information soft drinks are not at all healthy since they make our stomach weak ,so I would prefer to have fresh juice or water to avoid any stomach problems that I might get eventually.

They talk about wearing expensive clothes, watches, shoes and going out in luxury cars to casual friends or family parties. They say to stand with people of same status. Where in my view how you look from inside matters more than how you are from outside and being nice with everyone regardless of their social status has been the quality of great people.

They say drive car even when your office is on 10 minutes walk from your house. Where walk is a very important part of every day routine to keep us healthy and stay away from many diseases specially heart  diseases. And also driving car is not at all good for our environment where we live and breath every day. Such people never stop being a politician even when they don't even know ABC of politics. Pulling leg of others, back bitting, lying and attitude problem some prominent characteristics of these people.

The list goes on and on and to maintain status wherever we go has became part of our culture. And the result of it is discrimination among people based on wealth, spending too much money just for sake of showing status and dragging some people to inferiority complex etc. I do not see any positive outcome of doing all this so why not we change it starting first from ourselves and then educating close relatives and friends. And I admit that bringing such a change needs very wise decisions and their implementation not only by individuals but also by government.

Importance of loved once in our lives

Father, mother, sisters, brothers, wife, children and all other who are close to our hearts are the people that we need at some stage of our lives and without these people life is not life. I don't feel reluctant in saying that without these people there is no life as I believe that it is not only the case with me.

Important creation of God for giving confidence, showing right path, looking after all basic necessities of life including food, clothes and we need their involvement in many important decisions of our lives for our own good.

Mother is someone who keeps her child close to her from the first day he/she is brought in this world. She keeps the baby for nine months in her womb with many difficulties that no one else can even imagine. There is a very special bond of love between the child and mother from the very start. She takes care of child in early stages where a child has no idea of the world around him/her.She is there for her child when no one else is there and there is no match of sincereness a mother has for her child. 

Well said by great people;
A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.  
~Tenneva Jordan

Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.  
~Marion C. Garretty, quoted in A Little Spoonful of Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.  
~Irish Proverb

Sisters are brother's best friends. Sister is the one who argue with parents for their brother's and sister's rights. They are the one who feel for their siblings and they are the one who always want good for them.  

Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.
-- Vietnamese Proverb

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.
-- Isadora James

To have a loving relationship with a sister is not simply to have a buddy or a confident -- it is to have a soul mate for life.
-- Victoria Secunda 


It is impossible to please all the world and one's father

-- Jean de La Fontaine

 "I talk and talk and talk, and I haven't taught people in 50 years what my father taught by example in one week." 

-- Mario Cuomo

 "A father is a banker provided by nature." 

-- French Proverb 

"Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance." 

-- Ruth E. Renkel 

A brother is a friend given by nature.
Jean Baptiste

"My friends are my estate."
~ Emily Dickinson

All these beautiful people make our life worth living. They are the essence of ones life. They are the one who make us think positive and make us realize importance of this life. Without them life is nothing more than an unsolved mystery full with pain and disappointment.

Realizing how important these people are and live for them is one of important things which I think everyone should do. As great Albert Einstein has said, life is worth living when we live it for others.

Love for this culture

What makes me stay in Pakistan even when every other day there is bombing somewhere near my place or where my relatives lives, when there are so many problems including people are deprived from basic living necessities including food, land, clothes, electricity and gas because of corruption in our leadership, administration and responsible people, where living expenses is so high that an average job doing person is hardly able to save any money and for some, even it is hard to feed their families and the thing is that when it is very easy for me to go abroad to a very developed country and start living a very comfortable life?

Answer to this is that because my loved ones are here.

I left my father's place ten years ago for higher studies, stayed in Pakistan and then went to Australia in 2004. I lived there for five years and last year came back to Pakistan. During this time I have gone through many ups and downs in my life which have taught me many important lessons that I am sure are going to prove big help in my future life for making better decisions.

I learnt that living a life without loved ones alone is like living no life at all. When we reach a certain age our responsibilities increases and people on whom we rely in our childhood start relying on us or need us as they grew old. And at a certain age you have to take these responsibilities and if you start enjoying them, I think no one feels these responsibilities as a burden on them.

Now, even seeing loved ones faces brings such a satisfaction that you won't believe. This keeps me stick to this country and affects are that I have also started to love the culture, people, work and my city.

I feel that I enjoy more when I am close to my loved ones. I enjoy the food, friends company, my work, relaxing at home and company of children. I used to watch Hollywood movies, English TV series alot but since I have come back to Pakistan, I have started to watch Pakistan TV dramas and loving it.

I think some one has said very right that 'we can make our environment hell or the same environment heaven which depends on how we want it to be'. So for me, no matter if we live a very luxury life or an average life, if we don't have loved ones in our lives which include brothers, sisters, mother and father, we are not living but just trying to pass our time in this world.

Do we know how to drive on roads ?

No sir, we have no idea how to drive on roads!

That would be the answer of any one who will see traffic of any city of our country Pakistan. In my view there are two main reasons for this problem, one is that while driving we do not care and follow traffic rules and regulation and second is our traffic police are not doing their job properly.

When we are driving we do make many small mistakes including not keeping our cars in lane, not following traffic signs, ignoring traffic lights and most common I have seen is that we are always in hurry even when there is no need to be. 
Result of all this is so obvious, if we actually start noticing and acknowledging incidents that are happening every other day around us including; pedestrian deaths after being crushed under a car because of someones reckless driving, drivers along with people in a car died as a result of traffic accidents, drivers fighting with each other which in my view is just like animals behavior on someones minor mistake and innocent animals being killed.
One of the bad habits that new generation has adopted is texting while driving. It deviates one's concentration on road and brings many serious life threatening situations for driver and for other living beings. 

In my view, if we start being patient and adopt give way policy, things can get much better. Giving way when we are supposed too, for example when turning on road, parking, entering roads and driving on a straight road. Not using any gadgets that take our focus away from road and following traffic rules all the time.

So what if our traffic police is not doing their job properly or there is not enough traffic police in our cities. If we start taking only few precautions, believe me, our driving would be a great drive every time and we will feel much more free of aggressive behavior that we start developing by reckless driving. And last but not least, by doing so we are not only saving others from serious injurious but also reducing likelihood of us having an accident.
