Dr. Masood Hasan Zaidi Deficiency

Every year the beginning of the June was so joyful. I had plans of how to surprise him on Father’s Day and after you left the start of the month is so depressing.

I miss him each passing day but at times the desire to touch him, to be wrapped in his arms, head on his chest, his palm on my head, his voice uttering my name is so strong that no other thing and no other being can fulfill his absence.

As the  days are passing by, I am encountering success, with each successful moment. I miss  him even more. In crowd, in the moments of  merrymaking; my eyes wander to and fro just to have your look around. I stop at places I smell your fragrance at.

Every such day, or a month enlisting such days; is a throbbing reminder of his deficiency in my life.

Lok Mela, Preserved the Heritage Best For Saima Jatti

Folk’s flavor in harmony initiates from their culture and heritage. Pakistan, being the center of attention for the tourists from all around the world contains a specific importance in depicting its cultural heritage and lok (traditional) music. Lok Mela brings around joyous ten days for the people to get to know about their culture, this year Lok Mela made a folk singer happier too. Lok Mela, preserved the heritage best for Saima Jatti.

Bali Jatti was the first women to be the owner of a stage theater in Punjab but she did not permitted her daughter to adhere her profession but her granddaughter Saima Jatti chose the profession by heritage.

Samia Akhtar as known as Saima Jatti being the granddaughter of Bali Jatti engrossed the spectators by performing the melodious notes and shared the stage with Fazal Jutt on 8th April 2017 at Lok Mela, Islamabad Pakistan.

The annual ten days colorful festival add more  color to it, when the  performing artists  feel proud to take  forward their ancestors profession.

 

During the mela, I met Saima Akhtar.

holds great importance, as the same dress was worn by Bali Jatti in 1987 while performing at the stage of lok virsa. This is how  lok mela, preserved the heritage best for  Saima Jatti.

As you begin to realize that every different type of music, everybody’s individual music, has its own rhythm, life, language and heritage, you realize how life changes, and you learn how to be more open and adaptive to what is around us.  🙂

 

Talent and Skills Cursed by Reference System

“WE DO NOT HAVE A DEMOCRATIC MEDIA, I WROTE THIS PIECE TO ALL NEWSPAPERS YET NO ONE DARED TO PUBLISH. SO I DECIDED TO BRING IT OUT” Fatima Hasan Zaidi

 

Dream big to achieve big in life, all my 16 years of education circled around this phrase; but nobody told me that I m living in a country where degree, qualification, talent, skills and experience does not matter. It is an insignificant little thing cursed by the reference system.

Where ever I go with my resume with massive experience in my relevant subject, where my publications, skills, experience and my hard work is the only reference I have. I m not entertained by the authorities because either they do not trust in themselves and are afraid to see the resume and hire on what their mind says or they do not have the potential to do so.

All they need is a strong living being to be at the back of the one who wants to do something and they fail to understand that the reference won’t be putting in effort in the work but the person who stand firm with a CV.
I wonder if reputed organizations ever change their policies and optimistically hire the graduates on behalf of what they are and not what their sources are.

Believers of Imam Hussain A.S

Believers of Imam Hussain A.S

And dear ‘so called perfectionists’ of the  society, I am not answerable to anybody for what I write but Allah only. And I write what  I  feel.

Thoughts burn in my heart when I see elderly people doing obnoxious stuff in the sacred month of Muharram, between the Aashura specialy. People full of knowledge do not see the positivism of the Majalis  going around, they never take out minutes to listen any thing to clear their own disturbed thoughts exclaiming things about Shia Sect that mourn over the month.

Instead they  try to  find out the sarcastic stuff and talk over it then share it over the social media.. Wow, indeed for such people who see the photo shopped photographs put  lines over it  and post it as “INNOVATION” in Islam. One can clearly recognize if blood is shown with colors or some thing is genuine out there.

I am no scholar but just a believer of Imam Hussain  (A.S), I write just when thoughts prove me to think.. Just one thing to ponder upon is that, I will directly say non believers of Imam Hussain A.S are those who instead of mourning upon HIS  loss, start blabbing around on others with various statements. Often we  listen ” Shia Kafir” those who speak bad about  a sect of Islam are the ones who hurt their fellow Muslims exclaiming  themselves to be the great one.

In this scenario why do they forget that.

It is stated in QURAN not to hurt.

  • By which Allah guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darkness into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path. (5:16)


    Since the childhood we listen that deeds of a person will remain with the person who is doing so, it will not affect others in  surroundings so why does the living by people are affected by MOURNING and MATAM  others do. That should not be and understand that Allah may not ask them that why you were after that fellow to stop mourning.

The thing is do these kind of people do everything as stated in the Holy Book. Do they not lie? Do they not  hurt others? Do they behave very well with their relatives? Do they not hurt people by their taunts? Do they not backbite. In short if these people are perfect in practicing the teachings of Islam, they may do so or stop people but when they are  not perfect  they must  work on themselves not to create mess over web as part of the proxy wars.

It is a common thing that when a loved one dies you have no control over yourself. You cry, you behave in a different way because you lose your consciousness and crying or mourning over a loved one is not wrong so people should keep their filthy thoughts to themselves though it be Moharram or some ones death.

When you loose a loved one you start to understand the meaning of mourning of the Karbala more because when you see a death from so close ; you start to feel the pain of those who were martyred by the so called Muslims of that time.

Those who say that crying  is wrong over a dead may increase their knowledge as it is not an innovation (.

Quran details the crying of the skies and the earth in the Quran;

  • And neither heaven nor earth shed a tear over them: nor were they given a respite (again). (44:29)

So, all must see themselves and stop poking their noses around, because others mourning will not bother you in your grave and you are nobody to work on what others believe and others will never change the religious practice because of anybody..

Simply, who can not feel the pain of Imam Hussain A.S and the love for HIM by his believers should go and read about it instead of asking others to tell them about Imam Hussain A.S. and reading for increasing self knowledge is as well verily stated in Quran.

(96:1 – 5)

Read in the name of your Lord who created. Created man from a clinging substance. Read, and your Lord is the most Generous. Who taught by the pen . Taught man that which he knew not.
