Thank God That I Feel And Cry.

Early in the morning, I was yet to dealing with my first cup of coffee for the day when the newspaper made an entry from under the main gate of my house. The news paper was filled with news of a bank being robbed, Action against another KBCA man, Lyari unrest claiming another innocent life, a young lady being killed buy her own father, and three dead bodies found in different parts of the city. Such a newspaper is sure to give you the blues, but it is not in any way the newspaper’s fault, it’s the city, It’s the country, it’s our society we live in.

How can I change it ? What can I fix ? I am tired, baffled, I am sorry they are the people of my society I wish they could see where they are going.

At times I end up questioning my own sanity, why the hell do I care ? Why the hell can I not be like others, plastic devoid of all worries, but that is only possible if I am devoid of my emotions and sentiments too. And I will be a demon then.

It’s better to feel the pain, it’s good that I bleed and suffer, it’s better to be a human, Thank god I cry and feel.

Thank God That I Feel And Cry.

Some Quotations And Thoughts.

“Difference”: A fragmented thought.

Would it have made a difference if we would all have voted ? I don’t think so, It wouldn’t have made much of a difference, but the need is to educate people so they can pick a sane man plus to tell them that they have a right to ask for their constitutional right, they have right to lodge a complaint or protest in case someone in power tries to take away their constitutional right. They have aright to question the people responsible to run the state affairs. And they have right to get an answer back as well.

Let me tell you a story, around 13 years back in an election a candidate of a certain party won the election, his only promises to the people before the election besides getting them their constitutional rights was “I will make two maternity homes for you people, one for the women and one for the men”….. Is that what people wanted from him?? a maternity home for men!! Actually Not, people did not knew who to chose, how to chose. The party they favored had given this freak a ticket so they voted for him.

It is sad that people have stopped questioning there choices, they have started taking every thing for granted. They have stopped voicing their concerns. They say we are just the people while they are The People of Pakistan.
