I remember I read this quote once somewhere: ‘Life is simple; It’s just not easy’. Whoever said this was a smart person. He/she understood that life can be lived by adapting things that are simple and close to our heart. Simple little things that make us and our loved ones happy. As simple as that. It is just not easy to do so. It is not easy to make everyone happy at the same time. And it is not easy to produce the best results for everything, every single time. Just do your best not hurting anyone and your heart will start taking it easy. Chillax and enjoy these 10 random things I love (released one per day)
If you are a South-Asian, then you know what Monsoon rains are. A true love especially when you are in Islamabad. Clouds touching the earth, long wet and empty roads, a cup of Chai and Margalla Hills. Oh, and breathless scenes.
It is a nice morning as I’m writing this post. Actually, it rained heavily yesterday and so the purple-colored sunlight seemed unusual today. I have never seen it rain so hard but yesterday was the most beautiful day, indeed. And I actually did some photography too. So check out my Flickr (left tab – below!).
Rain showers me with so many ideas that it is for me hard to keep track of them. I just sometimes wonder why people consider rain gloomy. It is so natural and re-freshening and soothing to your eyes, and it actually makes you feel better. I guess people don’t have time to observe the nature which gives them a chance to quickly be judgmental about things so beautiful. Anyway, that’s there problem. No?
So where was I? Yes, the weather. That’s the update about weather. Another nice day of summer. Everything is calm and back-to-life with all the rains. Everything is green now. It feels like I’m just going on and on about nothing. I will go now and take sometime to admire nature. After all, I’m the only one left to do this
A little criticism
So, Coke Studio Season 4 is out. I hope all of you had a chance to listen to all the CS4 songs; after all, that’s the best thing that ever happened to Pakistan after T20 WC win. Some songs are so catchy while some are just too boring, I guess. CS4 is also too Sufi-istic, I guess, like the one where they mixed Jal’s Ik Aarzu with Dam mast Qalandar. That made it a flop, to be honest. If you want to do two songs, do ‘em separately; it’s fine with me (not that it would make a difference but still). But for God’s sake, mix two songs accordingly so that it makes sense to the listeners too. Bilal Khan’s song was a super-hit though.
Anyway, Goodbye for now!
The pressure seems to be mounting up as the exams are getting closer each day. As I sit here, looking through the window examining the nature, the birds, and the weather while inhaling the smell of rain mixed with mud, I try to remember those childhood days. Sometimes, I’m just left to wonder as to why we grow up. Life seems so easy and worth living when you have nothing to worry about. When everything is taken care of and all you have to do is enjoy each and every moment. The giggles behind a mischief, the utter nonsense talks, the stubborn behaviors, etc.; hence, everything seems so beautiful and carries a sense of freedom in itself when you are young. But why is it that as you grow up you are asked to live up to other’s expectations and perform to the best of your ability to achieve what is expected of you.
I guess childhood is meant to be fun and full of life. Sometimes, things happen for the good. We are meant to live for so much more…
