JOEYSSS BACKKKK


The title explains my excitement, yo.

I thought Matt LeBlanc had disappeared from the world of glitz and glamour. The world where anything's possible and yeah I'm about to get all cheesy about my feelings for television.

I love you. TV. Honest.

Yes so getting back to Matty. He's starring in a new show series drawma called 'Episodes'. OMGOMGOMG. I have to get downloading now. Shit yaar, second year bhi gaya down the drain.

Butttttt. Joey's back.*

Even though he is not hot and stuff like he used to be buttttttt. Joey's back.

*Which means that Sylar might reappear too somewhere in the future.

Of death...


Death is so painfully familiar, and yet so unsettling every time it hits. The only comfort is that I know they go to a better place...

Of sexy weather..


The weather is yum. It has been raining since some time yesterday night and the cool mist that has travelled inside the house has lulled everyone into a hazy dazy mood with no place for displeasure.

I'm glad I don't have anything important to do and can spend my time lazily daydreaming about epic adventures and then some not so epic ones, right in the comfort of the same computer chair that offers no inspiration otherwise on regular sunny days.

Food is another great part of this mausam, as to counter the effects of the cold I rely on hot tea, coffee, samosas and yes ofcourse, pakoras.

I just saved a tremendously long earthworm (Phylum Annelida; Did you know an earthworm has around two to three hearts in each segment, so that overall it can have up to thirteen hearts on an average? Imagine the emotional quotient of that!) from drowning in the rain by lifting it off the ground and landing it into one of the dry gamlas (flower pots).

The only sad part about today is the absence of my dear sun. But it's there isn't it? Just behind the clouds, letting them have the glory today. :)


How expensive are you?

Got this forward mail today, pretty interesting. It shows the different amounts of money needed to buy a week's food supplies for one family, in different regions of the world.

Yeh awesome kya hota hai?

A question that is perhaps bigger than the reason for our existence. Yeh awesome kya cheez hai bhei? Or in other words, how do you categorize something as awesome. Well, I don't know. If I did, I would be rich. And famous. And not spending my time typing away at this very dispensable keyboard.

Whenever something amazes me, I deem it awesome. And I've noticed it's usually something that's living and breathing rather than plastic. I meet so many interesting kinds of people every other day, they make my tragic little monotonous life a little less mundane. So, I have decided to bring in the *zing* to my blog by featuring these people. I don't know how regular this is going to be, since my plans are very sporadic, but I know quiet a number of people who deserve to know they are- awesome. I'm going to label these posts with 'Mein aur merey awesome log', so if you are interested in finding these posts from the pile of mess I keep posting, you'd just have to find the link in the labels box on the left. No, your other left. Yes, there.

Happy reading, and send me suggestions as to who I should highlight here! :)

P.S. Maybe, it's going to be you next time. He he. ( See, I'm bribing you to follow me ) ^^

Teh Mamaw Parsizz

Apologies for the 'kewlz' title of the post. But it's just that cool, my school.

It's one of the few things in my life that can make me have mawkish feelings and remind me of the existence of my rarely used (metaphorically speaking) heart. It made me who I am. It gave me my friends. It gave me my mentors. It showed me the kind of people who I would want to be like. And then some (most) I would definitely never ever want to be like.

I can never fully describe to you the feelings my alma mater invokes in me, nor would you like me to, I'm pretty sure.

There are many reactions for the name, The Mama Parsi Girls' Secondary School. Ridicule, envy, love, admiration, desperation (ha ha, you see what I did there?) and yet, nobody can escape the one beauty of it.

The architecture.

Even Maliha Ali has to appreciate that the building was one heck of a masterpiece.

So here are some pictures, so that you may see for yourself what a pretty little thing my school was. And tell me if you agree.

Sunrise


It's a tiring yet wonderful journey to college each day, as I get some time to reflect on my thoughts, quietly taking inspiration from my surroundings. The sky is different everyday, and the most beautiful are the winter days, when I see the sun rise with all its glory into the clear horizon over looking the phase VII grounds.

Using all Five

He blinks,
He sees,
He blinks again.
Perceives.

He hears:
A shout, a cry, a lament.
He drowns it out with giggles and chirps.
Intent on not hearing.

Opens his mouth.
Metal, salt, dirt.
The taste of tumult.
So he closes his mouth before he can speak.

He keeps holding his breath,
For he cannot dare breathe,
In the pungent reek of malice
For how long can he reject his need?

Battles with his senses,
Everyday.
Succumbs to his helplessness.
And stays sealed.

But.
He feels.
Despite his efforts.
He still feels.
He feels.


True

How gullible are we?

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!

A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide."

And for plenty of good reasons, since:

  1. it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
  2. it is a major component in acid rain
  3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
  4. accidental inhalation can kill you
  5. it contributes to erosion
  6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
  7. it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
  • Forty-three (43) said yes,
  • six (6) were undecided,
  • and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.
The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"

He feels the conclusion is obvious.

An experience to remember


If you've been following my blog, you'd remember I mentioned I was interning at a social work organisation called 'Jaag mere taalib e ilm'. Well, it came to end today with the certificate ceremony which I sadly could not attend since my left eye is puffed up with some weird infection thing. Anyhoo, Let's get on with Jaag.

It was basically a project dominated by a majority of Szabist students. It consisted of a comprehensive language training course for more than 200 students of the area of Mehmudabad who can't afford to pay to learn the 'language of the elite'. It also had a wonderful workshop for the teachers of the host school where the project took place which was a mentorship program to help improve the quality of imparting education to these children.




The Jaag team consisted of very dedicated core team members who organised the whole program. To name a few I'd say Bemisal, who was heading the whole thing. Cute little thing she is. You wouldn't expect to see so much power and enthusiasm coming from her petite structure but, you'd be surprised. Manaal, who was basically the person from the core team whose job it was to make us internees work. And boy, did she make us work! :P But at the end of the day, if it wasn't for her, we would've been a lot more careless..so I have lots of respect for this woman.

Besdies the core team, it was us internees who helped carry out this project.




The language training course was conducted by us internees who were interviewed and then had to send our curriculum for approval to Jaag before every session. The teacher's training was conducted by several known speakers and intellectuals coupled with some Jaag members.

Another thing that Jaag did was the renovation of the host school by painting the walls, fixing the soft boards and setting up a reading room and art room.



There was a party day themed as 'Orange Day' where students rejoiced on successful completion of the program and enjoyed various activities arranged for them. Television personalities Sahir Lodhi and Faisal Qureshi (Anchor) graced the occasion with their presence.



All in all, it was a lovely experience getting to teach these children and getting to communicate with them. It's great to see that this wasn't just one of those random activities that are done without planning. It was a well thought out project that grasped the root of the problems of Pakistan: education. I hope Jaag receives enough funding and support so these people can continue their original project was of six months instead of six weeks and cover all thirty schools they had planned to.






P.S. I'd like to thank ASA- Assess, Solve & Apply since it was as a volunteer of ASA that I found Jaag. ASA was also a sponsor to Jaag's Mentorship Program. If you want to know more about ASA, go to this link: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/group.php?gid=17267799853&ref=ts
