REALITY CHECK

As a child, I thought promises were meant to be fulfilled and forevers would last forever. I thought everyone meant the words that came out from their mouths and that people were actually happy if the smile on their face.

But i was wrong.

I grew up and reality gave me a hard slap across my face to wake me up from a dream of a fool, to tell me that I was all wrong. All I saw was people yelling at each other with their broken dream and promises in their hands. They showed me that some forevers would last for not more than three seconds long. Then I saw how people spat out lies to mask up their true intentions and how most of them shone brightly with the prettiest smile on their face only to break down, to drown in their pain when no one was looking.

As a child, I was hopeful and happy. But now i am only trying my best just like everyone else.

Being your daughter.

No matter how many years have passed, Nothing in the world can fill this space.

DEAR MUMMA,

I am fine here, so please don’t worry. Everyone takecare of me and love me. But it’s not the same, mom. I am not the same person anymore. It feels totally different. Right from the moment I wakeup I feel responsible as a woman. I am no more the girl of the house. I have suddenly become a lady. I can no more just keep sleeping beacause I feel like I need to get up and start my day by making tea in the kitchen. They all are nice to me. But no one comes to wake me up from the bed, kissing my forehead. I can’t scream from the bed “Mumma” and then it hits me mom that you are no more with us at home. You no more live with us.

It is not fair on me, Mom. For so many years , you raised me, gave me all love and care, and then one day you left me. I never wanted this and I don’t like it. I Miss you, I miss our discussions, I miss our gossips and I miss everything.

Now I have to think twice before I ask for everything. I look around for approval. I overthink about what people will think of me. They don’t say it but being a independent working woman, I am always scared of being judged. There are times when I just want to lock in room and stay there. I want to be pampered, forgiven and listened to. I too feel like doing the wrong things. I too want to live freely. But I can’t Mom. There is always this responsibility that I am now woman of the house and I can’t let your upbringings down.

I am writing this to you, maa. Because whom else I can share my pain with? You understand me. You know how it feels. I am missing being your daughter. Some times I just wakeup and wish it just a dream and you will be back with us. I am always smiling here but i am not always happy. I miss our old family. I feel so helpless when I can’t go to your room and hug you tightly. Sometimes I just keep staring at our family pictures and I just cry.

Women’s Day

This beautiful creation of the God! The angel on the earth makes our life a wonderful experience all together. Imagining life without a woman is quite hard-hitting. This angel shakes the cradle with one hand the earth with the other hand. The fact that all the great people of the world are born from the womb of a woman and it is a woman from whom those great people have taken their initial teachings. And that is the reason we have always emphasized upon giving the due respect to women in their life. And that is why women’s day is celebrated with so much of zeal and it has spread throughout the world. 

1. Celebrating Woman is a way of feeling gratitude to the each and every woman in one’s life, be it in the professional or the personal life. International Women’s day is observed every year on 8th of March and it is observed around the world to celebrate the velour of women. In most of the country the day has been observed as a national holiday. Women from rvarious cultural and ethnic groups come together crossing all the boundaries to remember their struggle of many decade for peace, justice, equality and development. The day allows women to raise her voice for an equal opportunity in whatever field she wants to participate in; same a man is provided with.

2. The bottom line of celebrating women’s day is due to the wide spread differences in various fields- the pay difference of 14.9% between men and women, only 21.4% of seats for women in parliament around the world, lack of awareness for women education and many more.

International women’s Day all about feeling women realize their worth and giving them boost to achieve as per their actual potential. On this day the world unites to appreciate their courage to cross all the hurdles and make such tremendous improvement in all most all the spheres of life. Besides that, it is the most important thing to be given emphasis is the work that still needs to be done to fill that gap completely that had existed from ages.

3. A general myth that exists in the society is that issues related to women empowerment can only be addressed at an infinitesimally slower pace. Many people out there in society believe that the gender gap not really exits and some are also of the belief that the efforts made by individuals cannot actually make difference to the gender gap that exists in the society. These beliefs have over the years debilitated the power of women. The first in this Endeavour to eradicating this deep rooted menace is realizing that the problem can only be identified and solved by interacting with the people who are actually irrational taboos of the society. On this day we must realize that every single person’s contribution towards fighting a threat of the society counts. International women’s day is all about being aware of the fact that each individual has to work in their own way for changing the ugly face of the society.

Women’s day!

STORY OF EVERYONE’S LIFE. 

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, longlost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger) but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience help to create who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.

Make every day count!!! Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

New Year 2018. 

How about we step into this new year with the resolve to be more open to others, be less critical and less judgemental.

All of us are guilty of being a little sarcastic of how others choose to live. We all have laughed once or more at someone on how they chose to look.

Let’s all remind ourselves that we all are human just trying to survive and find happiness.
May Allah give all of us happiness in whatever we do.

HappyNewyear! 😊 

Happy2018.

PLIGHT OF ROHINGYA MUSLIMS

The killing of Rohingya Muslims by Myanmar forces is so horrible that anyone having a conscience can barely give a glance to the pictures and videos circulating on social media sites. From cutting them, alive to setting them on fire, everything has been done. Infact, No way of torture and molestation is left in the process to ensure ethnic cleansing. 

Unfortunately, the role of muslim countries and religious scholars is so dubious in the entire scenario. It is a great failure of the political and religious leadership of musilm world. Mere issuance of press statements to condemn the massacre in Myanmar is not sufficient. Concrete steps are required to halt this massive killing. Although the situation demands active involvement but so far we the muslims have barely shown some passive actions. 

Despite, the severe ethnic cleansing of Rohingya’s , the Muslim countries have adopted the criminal silence. Unlike Turkey, no civilised state has raised its voice against the Buddhist government of Myanmar. Unfortunately, there is a crises of unity among muslims states, including the recently formed coalution of 41 Muslims, majority nations and the OIC. Besides the U.N and other human rights organisations are also not playing their crucial role for peaceful settlements. 

To settle the Plight of Rohingya Muslims, both the U.N Security Council And the OIC should immediately summon meetings of their member states. The Muslim countries should internationally isolate Myanmar . More importantly, all the muslims countries should be on same. Because of this we can tell the West that we would not let our Rohingya muslims alone in difficult times.
