Old friends vs New friends

Soul of Life!

Friendship is a complicated subject to talk about when there are so many categories of friends that we as a social norm identify and categorize friends in. But I felt like pouring some of my personal observation and share experiences about new and old friendships.

We usually start making friends when we are in pre school. Someone sitting next to us who we share lunch with or have seen crying and trying to make smile becomes our friend. We move on with schooling meeting new kids around and our priorities of making friends keep changing. Puberty hits and all of a sudden we need some more personal space to share our tiny little secrets so we evaluate friends on the basis of who are they connected to and if your word will be leaked out by any. Most of us make great friends during school and college and sometimes university…

People who are gems.

The Way I Think

AsZFvmcetI-FTdsHqAQa16VOubELAJX8wP82AEFtUVz9 People who are gems.

Certain times in your life you are going to lose your spark.
There will be dark nights and empty hands.
You will stumble and cry.
And in those times, you will realize that people will laugh with you on your brightest days but not everyone will stay when it gets dark.

Precisely, in those times, you will figure out who meant well.
Who was worth it, in the end.

You will see people backing off and you will see others lingering around, just to make sure everything is okay with you. You will find some of them walking you through and getting you there, where you feel good all over again.
These are the people who, in the pitch dark night of your life when no one stands by, lift you up.

When the sun shines again and flowers blossom all around you,
make sure you…

Gifts

The Way I Think

3344408079_a0a36703aa_n

Wow! It is really beautiful. I just got a surprise gift from a sweet friend.I wasn’t expecting so, it made me feel out of this world. Receiving a gift made me realize the true meaning of the four-letter word ‘Gift’.

What exactly is a gift? It is not merely a word; in fact it is a beautiful gesture to show the care, love, sincerity & loyalty of loved ones. Gift is not only to spend money, it is also about taking one’s precious time from busy schedules. In fact, buying a gift could be considered as a task. One has to do brain storming to select it. One has to keep in mind the likes, dislikes,needs, wants and wishes of one’s friends & family.

Our beautiful religion wants us to share gifts. There are several Hadiths, which emphasize on sharing gifts.

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be…

اصل خوشی، بچوں کی ہنسی میں

The Way I Think

اصل خوشی: بچوں کی ہنسی میں اصل خوشی: بچوں کی ہنسی میں

چھوٹی چھوٹی چیزوں سے لُطف اندوز ہونا, جن خوشیوں کو ہم نے محسوس کرنا ہی چھوڑ دیا ہے۔
خوش رُہنے کے لیے ،خوشی کو محسوس کرنا ضروری ہے۔

آج سوچیں کہ جو کچھ آپ کے پاس ہے وہ بہترین ہیں تو ہم زندگی کا مطلب سمجھ جائیں گئیں, ایک بار پھر سے زندگی کو جینے لگ جائیں گئیں. بعض دفعہ زندگی گُزارنے کے ساتھ ساتھ ،زندگی جینا بہت ضروری ہے۔ چیزوں کو ضرورت بنا لیا جاتا ہیں، اور اُنکے ساتھ اتنا دلی لگائو پیدا کر لیا جاتا یے، پھر محبت انسانوں یا اِردگرد کے ماحول سے نہیں۔۔۔ چیزوں سے ہو جاتی ہیں۔

Love heals.

We giggled while sitting on the floor of a moving train

“So diamond it is.” He said.

“Yes, one beautiful diamond ring.” I replied smiling.

“But let me tell you beforehand, I am the one who is going to choose it.” He pointed his finger at me warning me.

“Yeah right. You can’t choose jewellery for a girl. You are a man. You should know its not your territory. I am going to choose it. Come on.” I rolled my eyes at him.

“I certainly can’t choose it for any other girl, but I can choose it for you.” He held my hand.

I smiled. My eyes lightened up.

“All right. Then make it two. You choose one and I will choose the other. Even?” I said.

“No problem about that.” We both laughed.

It was a beautiful sunny day and we were coming back to home after…

پانی کی سرگوشیوں میں اک احساس

The Way I Think

پُر سکون چلتا : دریا کا پانی

پُر سکون چلتا یہ دریا کا پانی ،اپنی اندر تازگی کا احساس لیئے۔۔ نہ جانے کتنے انسانوں  کے احساسات و جذبات اور ان سے منسلک خوشیوں اور غم  کو اپنے اندر سموئے  چلتا جارہا ہے۔۔

پوری دنیا سے دور چند لمحے تھکن دور کرنے کا بہترین ذریعہ بنا دیا  قدرت نے۔۔!  کبھی کبھی لگتا ہے یہ پانی دل کا حال جانتا ہے، اور بہترین دوست کا کردار ادا کرتے ہوئے  دلاسے بھی دیتا  ہے۔۔! پانی کی سرگوشیوں میں احساس ہوتا ہے  ایسے بہترین دوست کے ہونے کا جو آپ کو بس سنتا ہے ۔۔

 کیونکہ آج کل  انسانوں نے سننا  ہی تو چھوڑ دیا ہے اپنے سے منسلک انسانوں کو۔۔! وہ آپ کے پاس ہو کے بھی آپ کے پاس نہیں ہوتے۔۔

آج کا انسان شوشل میڈیا پہ ہی شوشل ہو کے رہ گیا ہے۔ عام زندگی میں وہ بس وہ ایک مجسمے یا بت کی طرح کے جس کا…
