Heartiest Tribute to Amna Zulfiqar

Heartiest Tribute to Amna Zulfiqar

In the living era we often are in the grip of trends that are obviously  created by humans like us. We habitually listen the word ‘Tribute’ for the ones who live no more. But the fact is strange; what happiness they may have from it. So pay  tribute to the  ones who can seek pleasure from it

What does tribute means?

A tribute is merely an act that is intended to show gratitude, respect, or admiration for a person.

So, just sitting by  it popped up in my head why should not I be the one on changing trends and should write for one of my great mentor from NUML, Mam Amna Zulfiqar. I really adore the beautiful being in the premises of the university. Where as, my story  of inspiration toss around hilarious twists and turns towards Ma’m Amna and I feel no regrets stating it all straight forwardly.

You can say it the story of a student-teacher relationship or in my words the story of immense horrific rays turning into bright shining love.

Who is Amna Zulfiqar?

When you listen her name, in your head a glory of smile captures the scenery with a doll like girl embellished with soft light and blooming flowers. In short, the most glamorous teacher. All the days, dressed up in an amazing  manner.. Simply a beauty.

When We Met

The story of our interaction, is not something less than meeting a monster, I stay very honest in  explaining  my  feelings and not afraid that  she  might read it and I  will  again  feel the monstrous jerks. Not so long ago in 2016, I  graduated from NUML, BS Mass Communication. No doubt, I was  one of the most  creepiest students of my class and felt extreme pride in misbehaving, not studying, bunking with an aim that the  teacher should see me that i a on a bunk… Well about my  creepiness  will write in another blog.

Coming to the point, it was my 5th semester. Mam Amna used to teach Online Journalism. Unfortunately, the hardest period of my life. when baba passed away. So alL the teachers treated me more or less like a baby but in the  fairies she seemed to me like a ghost.

I was so so so afraid of her that each of her class was like a head ache I used to e so afraid because she used to listen the previous day’s lecture from me. I ever tried not to  have an eye contact with her yet I was the first one to repeat the lesson.

I remember a time when she talked to me in a way that I actually wanted to eat her up. So one day, it was  our class on the top floor and it was a rainy day. Not intended to attend  the class I was roaming around. She caught me, brought me to class and I had to sit in. While in between she asked me something and I was to the moon and  back absent minded. I had no clue what was she asking about. She exclaimed ” First you did not want to come to the  class, now you  do not know the answer and you  are looking at me like you want to eat me.”

Though terrified I was, tears rolled down the cheeks!

I exclaimed on a harsh tone ‘Yes I am looking at you like I want to eat you.’ I ran out of the class. Direct to the  staff room.

After the incident for days I was not  in the condition to face her.

But this all the creepy stuff of the student life,settled soon with her by the 7th semester she came to teach somehow we were on the better terms.

But the creepiness I had with Ma’m Amna, made me a strong girl. Later after graduation on my first job, I  was through a situation that I wanted to  smack the office’s door  and run to home but I realized that this was not  possible at a job.

And my brain screeched, this i not Amna Zulfiqar’s class. You need to be patient. My monstrous 5th semester made me tough that I was able to control  my tears rolling down. Not to the whole but had a little stamina built in. This day in my life made me feel that I was missing her to an extent that i  felt colossal love and gratitude for her, ‘Ma’m Amna’

A few day after my  realization, I told it to her and she said. ” I am happy to see you like this Fatima, excelling in the field. I wanted you to be strong so I never pampered you like the other teachers because I saw a rebel in you and I knew being rebellious, you will object my harsh word.”

Listening to this, I became so happy that I started loving her so much. And now I follow as she said.

“Stand straight, chin up and eyes focused on the goal to be achieved.” –  Amna Zulfiqar

Heartiest Tribute to Amna Zulfiqar



The EYELINER Story After Graduation


So, after clearing up 9th semester happily – it is almost a year about this thing.

I learnt so many things after i was no more in NUML.

The most important to me is this one, stated as

Finally I can apply eyeliner on my eyes myself.

Well this is the most creepiest of things to write about at the moment, 5am at night (As yet i m wide awake and have to take good night sleep soon)

But what I do when the cough is not letting me sleep and my brain is wandering around.

So, i was remembering the time I was never able to apply eyeliner to myself. Each time either a cousin, neighbours,


The Eyeliner

classfellow, junior, senior, teachers or even at times any body random in university had to do the honour of applying eyeliner to me.

Where I went through the lovlingly irritating words

  • Yar tumhari ankhy bht choti hy
  • Color hi krna prta hy nzr nhi ata
  • Ankhy na hilao na

As if I did that intentionally :/

Well, I remember while I had an interview travelling through Metro. I asked the lady at metro station who checks you before entrance to apply eyeliner to me..

Well later on even in office I got a friend (water) i call her she used to do that.

But Now finally, I apply the eyeliner on my eyes my self


Nothing much it is just an excerpt from my mind at 5am.


Because Environment Day, SHAME!



On 16 March 2016, under the department of Management Sciences of NUML; Environment Day was conducted by the learned group of people. Students and teachers carried out a peace walk and speeches were narrated on the accountability of save our environment.


Stalls were placed with stuff presenting attractive art work and plants display by the respective groups who were part of the campaign.


All of this campaign proved to be entire waste of time and waste of every possible material or papers used to conduct it. As the ending of the environment campaign resulted in sheer shame.

The ones who were delivering messages to protect environment, stop pollution proved themselves as losers. We can’t say that they are little creatures who do not know how to wrap up things.


The green and white balloons  which were displayed to show colors of environment, were polluting  the environment by being stuck on the trees. People fail to realize or perhaps choose to ignore that once released, balloons become nothing more than floating litter.


While moving on the littered facade, I saw the most embarrassing thing. One of the poster shouting recycling phenomenons  was found lying aimlessly on the grey surface of the mother earth, further more it stated ‘IT CAN MAKE DIFFERENCE’ and yes it made an unbelievable difference that TICK CROSS can be seen visibly.


If you are doing something and then fails to follow it yourself !

Shame! on having such knowledge.





Life is a greatest blessing of Allah, it has been given to all human beings so they can achieve what they want to. Each individual on earth dreams about something, he wants to do or get.

Some people believe that dreams do not come true it has just to be wished with closed eyes and it disappears as eyes are opened but still the people exist too who believe that


and these dreams are seen with open eyes. It means that if you have a strong focus on something and you are determined about it, no force can stop you to reach to your final destination.

There was a time not so long ago, just five to six years back I dreamed a dream and my school’s principal Ma’m Nasreen Tariq said to me that if you dream something, go for big dreaming because if you will dream big a day will come and your dream will come true. I listened to her advice and focused on my dream, which was whenever I will join the first media organization it would be PTV. 

When people around asked me , why PTV? I just  used to say as it was the first channel of Pakistan I am affiliated to it. I want to do something for my land then why not take a start from PAKISTAN TELEVISION.

Days passed by and I got admitted to a university NUML for BS MASS COMMUNICATION the field I am interested in. I met people belonging to PTV ; my teachers and mentors and just thought to struggle until I get my dream fullfiled.

Finally a day came and it said INTERNSHIP and I thought of PTV. Veins in the brain started to clap and then 29TH JULY 2013, came and I joined PTV WORLD. WOAH!! I was overjoyed and it was the best day in hand, it was different. I met people I used to see on screen. I met my inspiration OMAR KHALID BUTT. All the people are too good. My aim was


My dream came true. I am happy , now I want to be a vigilant worker. My dream now is to learn what will be taught, fall for mistakes and get up by learning from them. This is life.
