There Goes the Evil

"He is drunk", said the supposedly pious man leaving the mosque back towards home; pointing at the man who was lying on a street bench under a tree rich with dry autumn leaves. He was followed by another man saying the same about that cold senseless man on the bench. It has always stayed a human nature generally as well as specifically to stay judgemental at spectacular aspects of world and its happenings. An old beggar, who had witnessed this whole scenario, looked at him curiously as every passing person cursed, claiming him evil, Satan and drunk. It was a cold night and the old beggar had no coins to fill his starvation except a small blanket he carried with him and a half slice of bread. Scared of the drunk evil man he thought he might rob his blanket and the bread or perhaps he might hurt him as he is evil and being drunk would be out of  his senses too. As the streets cleared in silence, the man got up from the bench and walked towards the beggar, The poor old defenceless beggar lost the grounds under his feet along with the voice to cry out for help as he saw him thrusting his hands into his pockets to take out the knife. He closed his eyes rather than seeing his chest ripped from his shoulders.

As the foot steps stopped, nothing happened except the sound of the coins and a cash change dropped in his blanket. Shockingly opening his eyes, the old beggar was amazed to find the man neither drunk nor his shining face and the quiet stare of his eyes showed the horrors of an evil. As the man turned to walk away the poor old beggar stopped him and asked, "They said you are a drunk, evil, Satan, why would they say that"?

The man smiled and replied  ''I do get drunk some times, my fellow ! Yet they were just helping the evil ! A dark evil marketing his presence indebted within their souls''.

Dissipated, the old beggar blessed the man as he walked away down the street.

Rights to Ask ?

Pakistani people are obsessed with the might of  the army, some times they are so obsessed that they fear army and the intelligence agencies more than the enemy itself.

Question 1 :   Does fear causes respect in hearts ?

Question 2 :   Can a poor nation like us afford such a huge infrastructure of military and weapons worth                
                      billions of dollars ?

Question 3  :  Is it wise not to show the least interests in nation building, political stability and education
                      giving  more  importance to war slogans and hatred ?

Question 4 :   Raising the voice for your basic rights is a treason ?

Question 5 :   Can our international policy not rely on better flexible diplomacy in terms of peace rather than
                      conflicts in the region with our neighbour countries ?

Question 6 :    Would my children have better future in the same exhausting environment we have lived
                      all our lives ?

Sachin Tendulkar ‘’ A legend of Spartacus, Napoleon Bonaparte and Alexander’’ in the arena of World Cricket.

I grew up watching the greatest legends fading and appearing in the arena of Cricket, Nothing could have been more pleasures than watching Pakistani team winning the 1992 world cup. Imran khan standing as a champion while thousands cheered as he gazed upon them with a crystal trophy shining high up above the hearts of the people. This was a Legend I was going to see the last time on the grasses of the stadium. How could be anyone with such a glory was going to part its self from the gladiatorial fights of the arena for whom I had always cheered.  I admired the man as I admired the legends of Andy Roberts, Allan Border, Greg Chapel, Kepil Dev, Rod Marsh and the legends I heard about Frank Worrall. itself
Yet my heart forged to see a legend who may appear on the grounds and yet may leave but his versatility over his opponent shall be remembered as legends of all the legends in arena. When he stands even the skies fall upon the knees of the glory, when he moves so the ground moves as for the glory and when he waves his sword high against the most ferocious bowlers attacking him he slits off the opponent with the blade of his sword. He wins the hearts of the millions again and again and continues to do so as long as the strength of his arms lays upon the glory and yet his legend lives for centuries to comes.

As the time passed with my mind and thoughts seeking for a champion, a man hardly five and a half feet tall caught my attention. He looked smaller than the other giant Gladiators, They called him Sachin. How can this little man face the fury of the greatest bowlers of the arena when even the greatest giants feared for being slaughtered mistaking to step upon the pitch? But the man was different. He had a glittering shine in his eyes and a shimmering move as he walked upon the sands of the pitch. His Helmet armor shined in the sunlight as he stood a knight with the sword thriving to strike the gold in arena. Without the stress of fear the man passed through the shadows of the giants gazing upon him with the thirst of Blood and destruction, It seemed like they wanted to tear the little man apart making a lesson for no man with such a stature to ever even consider entering the arena in their presence. As the giants opened the gates of the hell upon the man running on the ground to throw the hell fire upon him the man waved his sword and stroke the hellfire crushing the heat with its blade high across the arena. The entire arena rose as if the lost spirits had awakened in the call of victory. Yes! This was the man ‘’ who brought the entire arena in the roar of the glory’’ they cheered and chanted his name and loved him but what they didn’t know the greatest legacy of the man had just begun, He was to bring more glory to them as for the years to come. No one had ever been as versatile as the man appeared each time facing the giants winning the hearts of the people. Each single day as passed his glory shines high above the skies. He became the greatest of all the gladiators, even the most ferocious giants now feared facing the man. He made his entire nation proud and people from all across the world love him as he entertained them. His name is Sachin Tendulkar. Though today he has officially announced to leave the arena yet the world will remember him for a thousand years as the greatest gladiators of all gladiators, the glory that shall shine in his name for ever and a legacy to be followed for generations to generations.

'' X Military Men ''

  • No matter they left the military long time ago, living on the mercy of civilian organisations they will still  look upon the civilians as below themselves 
  • They will not let you speak even if you are correct.
  • They will try to make the other people believe they are the most intelligent people in the entire world   even though the other person knows he is a total jack ass.
  • They will never let any intelligent or an experienced person to surpass them.
  • They are very afraid of Intellectual people.
  • They will expect you to obey them like a foot soldier, and if you fail, they will hurt your ego.
  • They love to fire; they will keep firing the lower staff trying to show their presence and power.
  • If anyone tries to correct them, they will burn and blaze, pointing and posing fingers with the curves on the forehead, this is their only defensive strategy.
  • No matter even if the person has got the highest GPA’s or educational certificates they will still hire their own incompetent people for the jobs.
  • Even all the day they have got nothing to do, they will still pretend to be busy as in hell ‘’ Look busy do nothing’’ is their old policy
  • If you are discussing about Economics, Finance, marketing or any official work, they will get embarrassed as they know nothing about these things, to overcome their embarrassment they will waste your next 60 min telling the stupid tales of Tanks, Guns, Rifles, and grenades, things nothing to do with any official activity.
  • They speak loud on cell & office phones to gain other people’s attention.
  • They will keep interfering in other people’s business even if it’s not their business.

These are only a few qualities mentioned yet but the main issue still stands much griever. It is said by the year 2020 seventy Million ( 7 crore) youngsters ageing from 18 to 25 would neither have any decent education, nor they will  be having any labour skills to balance their qualities as energetic,decent visionary youth of Pakistan and those with Higher education would face hurdles in the race of adjusting themselves for better opportunities due to the limited seats taken by the retired military officers in both civil and private sectors.

When we talk about the Youth and their secured future, we also have the responsibility as a nation to stand and critics the factors responsible for manipulating the social and financial rites of the youngsters, we have to gather our strength and  stand for those  willing to work for the betterment of the country entirely depending upon the Merit, talent and equal rights.

When Frustration Became an Entertainment

 by Hassan Khan (Xaroo)

I always forget when Jinnah was born, said one of my school fellow when i was in 8th Grade 12 years back during a Pakistan studies class,even after so many years i happened to meet him once again while he was back from US.After a wonderful chit chat i jokingly asked him the same question, do you remember when  Jinnah was born, he was stunned confused with the same answer, i think it was 1876 or 1886. It seemed like i had asked him a wired general knowledge question ‘how Old Abraham Lincoln was when he first shot a Giant wild Turkey, aim sure an average 14 year old US citizen can answer the poor Bird’s murder by the their Sixteenth president when he was just 7 years old,though we also know the fact that 30 % of US citizens cant locate United states on a world map,but that’s not our issue, unless we remember the birth date of greatest national hero of our nation.

With the recent disturbing terror situation and the ever green political instability of our country, people’s life has shaped more like a debating forum.From a big company's executives to the common man sitting at a Dhaba (Local Cheap Hotel) are discussing the same topic of the future of the country, the conversation either concludes with out any result while some of them even get in to serious fights, the best part are rest of the other people sitting there watching them fighting, it looks like they are watching some exciting action movie of John Rambo, i still remember a scene from a Tom Hanks movie, it had a character of an Old man who is a Janitor of the central New York Air port, after cleaning one of the transit passages he sits on a bench watching the people slipping due to the wet slippery floor, he laughs all day long, Tom Hanks come to him asking ! why you always sit here and laugh, the old replies, aim a 80 year old man, i have no kids, my wife was dead 9 years ago, i have got nothing in my life to Laugh and enjoy, watching the people falling is the only entertainment i have got.

I wonder how many people at Dhaba Hotel or the public places sit all day long watching others fighting just because they have got nothing else to do, some of them are holding a file with their resumes, unemployed looking for jobs while some are the labourers waiting for the customer to catch at least a single day work to make 200 Rs (2 and a half Dollars) as at the end of the day he is to be answerable to his wife, while rest of them are not even capable enough with a decent education or any labour skills so they sit all day long having cups of tea, they all seem like a group of intellectual’s with incomplete knowledge but a lots of frustration.

The only thing they can not do is to bring their debating fights in to a synergistic conclusion.

The question is who to be blamed for the lives of  thousands of  these people, should we blame only the politicians with their corrupt background or maybe there is some other reason behind the curtains. Can we blame our military for always initiating the diplomatic policies of wars and conflicts using the name of God and Jihad for the enforced hatred bringing up the causes of  freedom of a Lands most famous ’Kashmir’ that became the sole reason of grass eating situation for our people, how could an Army General neglect the slavery of his own citizen in darkness of ignorance,poverty and Illiteracy, while he talks about the rights of the land which is not even ours, throwing our people in miseries who now doesn't even cares to know the name of Quaid and even those who are well enough to go to schools and institutes, find only the creation of Pakistan in their Pak studies textbooks with the stories of murder,crimes, evil and disinformation, then comes the objective resolution, the constitution and simply ends with mineral resources and useless Orthodox,Oh Lord what happened after words, who is Sikander Mirza, who is Ayub, who is Dr ‘Abdus Salam’the great Pakistani theoretical physicist and nobel Laureate’and most of all do we actually know what Zia ul Haq did to this country.

I can confidently claim an average Pakistani doesn't even knows the exact reasons behind his restricted controlled mind resulting in to incapability of conclusion to his hot line opinion even if he tries all day long.
It is now the time to tell the people Truth ‘Lets not hide our history no matter if it bitter or points her self to any reputable organ,Truth will always be the truth

If we will try to subjugate the History,History will subjugate us

Hassan Durrani
