Election 2013 - There Is NO Fate but What We MAKE

I am writing on my blog after a long time.... I think if today we didn't decide some of the important things as a nation then we are never going to do so again.

We've been hearing that this election will be the greatest elections ever in the history of Pakistan. And I want to make my contribution, even it be a meagre one :)

We talk of change a new Pakistan, what is the new Pakistan going to be? Will we return to our lives once the election fever is cooled, will it only be an event like 14th August or 23 March? Will we fall back into the slumber and then curse our government again? Why so, because we brought them to power in the first place?

Lets start the change from our homes. Instead of throwing away the wrapper carelessly keep it inside your pocket, instead of getting favors for ourselves lets do things as per  the way they should be done. Lets not call the might right, but speak out. Treat those below and above you with hte same level of respect. In short, be the person you want your leader to be.

The LDA building burns up, it swallows 22 people, Fire rescue was as efficient as usual, not even a single private helicopter was sent to rescue the lives of innocent burning people.... I think all the major political parties could have done this.

Just think on this that why the President has to go to Dubai to get a medical check up, why can't the ex-Prime Minister's son be safe in his own constituency, why can't the political parties get security for their campaigns in their own sectors? Why don't the children of our highest government officials study in government? 

Because if they would have cared for the public and would have established an infrastructure for good governance, enforced law and order and would have made education their first priority things would have been different.

Their time is up, now the choice is yours. Use it well. For you and your future....   

Don't regret what happened in the last term, you don't have to give the old faces another chance. When they couldn't deliver in the 5 years, what good they will do in the next term? We faced the hell this last term, let us use our vote and tell the leaders that we have rejected their candidates, we know our rights we know our power... We'll elect for our future not for their coffers.

Every party has an excellent manifesto, all of them has a great vision, don't just vote for the vision...
You see, in human body the signal come from the brain.. if any organ is not working correctly the brain directs it and make it function properly. If a party has a strong leader. a strong brain, then he can educate and control its candidate. The captain steers the ship and guide the crew...

So see your leader, if he has the guts to do what they have promised, they will not forget you in their grand palaces. They will not let the bad faces in their party fill their bags, they can take a stand for their nation. Vote for a credible candidate, vote for a credible captain of the team. And be aware of the power you hold in controlling your leader. Reminding him of the promises he made with you.

Am signing off, with the hope that we change ourselves and will not be the puppet in the hands of those we given our fates in the past.

Remember there is no fate but what we make... Good Luck Pakistan :)

Nostalgia. Yes that's what it feels like, being back here at AKz Archives.

Without thinking I looked up the word's meaning. It comes from Greek, and means a state of homesickness - and a pain, an ache a wistful or excessively sentimental yearning for return to past associated with happy memories. I heaved a sigh. Yeah, that's right.

Memories, feelings, stray thoughts just everything comes gushing in, and this time I neither barricaded myself  from them or sank into the usual sadness. I just accepted them, rather welcomed them. Because I knew that sooner or later the time to move on will come and I will have to move on.

I have to make the decision and this can be the first step to start the journey back to being myself. I have taken long and now I have to move forward.

I've lost count of the number of times I thought about taking up writing again, forming words, weaving ideas. Sometimes out of pain and hurt and sometimes out of hope and love. Nothing has been strong enough to ignite the spark and arouse my brain. I wanted to write with all my heart, I wanted complete peace of mind, no interruptions, I wanted to mute all the noise around me and concentrate. But I failed it, like so many other tests. I've always had the luxury of being able to trace my thoughts in words fluently. But the long gap of bitterness, agony, disappointments and abandonment have shaken my confidence here too, and left me struggling with words.

This wasn't how I imagined it will work because until this minute I was still unsure. And then like a piece of jigsaw puzzle fitting in its place I realize that I will not overcome my weakness until I will not make myself to write this time. Not just write but take it to the end, complete this post and publish it!

And now when I write, I write for myself. I write because I still feel am not a lost cause. I hope, oh yes I am hoping, that the odds will be in my favor. I need the leap of faith and I am willing to take it. I know that I can take a lifetime and wait for the right moment or I can make my moment. I chose the latter.

Its tough getting up from a high fall. It tougher to climb up again, but giving up isn't the option now.

Have a great day my readers.
See you soon with something better and interesting the next time. This was just a little message for you and myself.


Its AK signing off.

The Things Unsaid

Hi dear readers and friends!

Hope you all had a great start to the new year and may it proves wonderful and constructive one. Yeah I know you all are expecting the new year resolutions post!! :) Well it wasn't that work kept me away from blogging. I was trying to find out my new year resolutions, to gauge if I have the right amount of virtue to follow them without being astray, and recommend them to my dear readers! :)

Well I started building up my resolutions and to note them down here in my editor, waiting for the right time to complete and publish them. It was as usual that I opened up 'Edit Posts' link from my Blogger's dashboard and glanced upon the post titles, there were all my published post and more than those were my unfinished, non published work! The things that were unsaid, they have not lost their significance, but the time to say them have passed. Leaving them faded and old, like the pages of a book, unread and frail, remaining untouched over the years.

So don't let time build webs over your thoughts and bury them deep inside and further into the deepest corner of your mind. Someday long afterwards you'll find them among the pile of old forgotten items. Say it at the right time. :)

Catch you guys soon, as I hope my application servers restart, I am on a 10 mins break from work!
Take Care. Adios!

A glance back in our memory archives..

Asalam O Alikum and greetings Dear Readers,

Hope you all are doing great with the grace of Allah, in all that you do and where ever you are. :)

I peeped in to say a cheerful hello and to prepare you for the next post, that will be, New Year Resolutions! Oh yeah, its been a tradition I never keep up each year. But I don't like giving up and that to without a good fight, so here I found myself a couple of week back making resolutions. But from the past I have learnt to keep my expectations to a minimum and make reality the ground on which i'll base up my resolutions.

Whats the point in sharing them with you all. Well of course number 1 is that I want to bring the good in the life of others that i find for myself, and number 2 is obvious, I need you as a witness to them, to remind me in case, you know ;)

So lets keep the rest to later while you all take care, give it a rest, its been a year and you too need a lil time off. Take a seat, enjoy life and glance back and reflect.
Today I am thinking tolerance is a gift more precious than silver or gold. You guys think on it too.
While I take my leave with a promise to catch up with you all soon!!

Fiaman Allah!
