Social Media, Pain In The Neck !


download        Day by day as we grow up we started to encounter new things in life. Some were good while others were not and some were made to be used for a little while. Life always taught us that amusement objects are not made to have impact on life relations but while growing up people stopped paying heed to it; so social media became their first priority and relations went on after that, sad!

No doubt, technology is taking over the present day living beings so is social media though number and number of benefits are obtained out of it but still then a I feel it being bound in box if I make technology my ultimate goal. Despite of everything available online I don’t feel satisfaction in reading newspaper or books online. Some stuff only pleases you the way you have been doing since your birth. A few things can be evolved in life but predominantly can’t be altered.

To believe it or not in our society social media is proving to be a great menace not just in youth but in every important matter of life; ranging from friendships to relationships, family disputes or political affairs. Where social media is proving itself best in providing freelance jobs and general knowledge it is  being a great pain in the neck and a point of egoistic assumptions destroying peaceful lives.

Knowing Friends On A Friendship Day!



Today, 7th August 2016 being the friendship day is one of the most meaningful days of all the days we celebrate but after years of growth I have finally recognized that everybody you meet is not your friend. Every passerby, workmate or any one you socialize with cannot be labeled as friend neither a friend is someone you have spent about years along.

Being friends and knowing the exact meaning to it is not something like opening a mathematical formula but just a little feeling of intimacy which can make anybody your friend with a glimpse of a rolling eye, though. That friend can be anybody you feel comfortable around, who understands you well and is your friend without any false purpose or the urge of betrayal.

As true friendship is a bond which holds tight like fish are in pond. In life by the time I can clearly differentiate between a friend and a foe while the most poisonous is the one who remained your friend on purpose.

Keeping the mean ones aside I have got a few people in life who to say are the best and without a doubt I consider them my friends and yes they are my family. I also encountered people in life who were not happy with the point of I appreciate a lot that I think life on earth is not possible without a particular group of people I call my friends.

To appreciate those friends we celebrate this day known as “friendship day.” I am glad to the best ones in life naming them this one group is the one who gave me a rebirth after baba passed away.  Standing by me through thick and thin and without you all I could not have been what I am today as that point was the one I thought I could not survive ahead.

So I am thankful my dear friends and the best of the best ones. Saad Butt, Gibran bin Tahir, Muneeb Khalid, Abdul Aala, Asad Nawaz, Sara Khan, Noor Tariq, Chaudary (Khurram Masood), Khadija Shafquat  & Aqdus Viqar .

Moreover the two best ones over the internet Nikolas Kremer and Carol Scott.

Other lovelies from university Bazil Zafar, Shafeh Ali Butt, Iqra Rana, Zarnab Tariq, Asfand Yar Dar, Sana Barkaat, Saad Altaf, Umer Bashir, Waqas (Banta), Malik Rehan, Nubla Farrukh, Arslan Warraich, Fatima Tariq, Osman Zaman Kumail, Ali Ahmad, Aresha Sohail.

Happy to be with the other best people Elsa Imdad, Zain Saleem, Uzair (fauji), Rahat Izhar, Mona Shahid & Sharjeel Qureshi.

While came and went.

At times meeting once or twice turns out to be as lovely as it has been ages to know someone so well that it twirls in to friendship. The meeting with the Punjab University group over a hill station for about 2 days gave me more of the amazing friends; Zain ul Hasan, Ashu Khan and Arslan Sheikh.

Life is so small but it gives us so many people to live by. Some so sweet that your mind functions to receive them as friends.

Happy Friendship Day!
