Islamabad Calling

It’s been a while since I’ve last had some food for thought and there’s an obvious hunger inside my soul. Never did I know that there would be such a drought of inspiration in the city I moved into, where people are barren lands. Yes, it isn’t wise to blame your surrounds for personal exasperations but there is definitely some truth behind the philosophy of people exuding vibes – good or bad. Yet I long for the literal green pastures of Islamabad and the company of good friends, colleagues and mentors whose presence would keep my spirits high during times when uncertainties made their way into my thought processes.

Now again is the time to fix my gaze to the same green pastures and wait for the miracle of the law of attraction – who knows if I find my lost connection. InshaAllah I will.

We Are Sorry, Sri Lankans!

No one ever imagined that calamity of such magnitude would strike Pakistan and Pakistan’s cricket right in the heart of its cricket headquarters and that too at the expense of its guests; the Sri Lankan cricket team who braved the international concerns to visit Pakistan when no one was prepared to visit. The visitors’ bus was attacked by unidentified terrorists while en route to the393223 Gaddafi Stadium for the third days play of the second cricket Test between the two teams. 6 Sri Lankan Players were reported to be injured in the unprecedented incident of its kind along with a few officials.

The act is extremely despicable and it shouldn’t have happened. The innocent cricket players haven’t done any wrong to anybody. It could only be carried out by some f*ing cowards. It is for sure, however, that the incident will prove destructive for the game of cricket in Pakistan.

Let us demand for a thorough investigation of the incident! Let us demand for the culprits to be found out and brought in to justice! Let us pray for the martyrs of the incident! Let us say SORRY to the Sri Lankans for the unfortunate events that struck them on our land!
