“An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.”(Anonymous)
Ever heard of a magic mirror that answered the queries of a queen in some fairy tale (I fall short to recollect the name). The other day I desperately felt the need of it. Because at the end of everyday I ask myself the same bloody question; what is life? I fail to hear any answer.
I don’t label myself “The religious” kind, neither do i have any degree(if there is any) but to trace the solution to my query I had to look into the way God has been running the world for centuries. The religion teaches us something; it educate us how to discipline ourselves in order to be a productive part of the society. The confusing part that I find is that God want us to be independent at the same time dependent on others. No men can claim that he can live his life on his own at the same time he has to. It’s just like to tell some one that all you need to do is to walk on the rope but wait I have to take one of your legs away.
Imam Ali (A.S.) once stated “I found Allah from the failures of my intentions”. We work hard but fail to achieve what we want. We bounce back and work harder to achieve the same but our luck screws us. We get to listen, “Shit happens, life’s unfair”. Its not only about you and me. Go and look at the world,we are not always responsible for what happens in our lives and yet we are characterized by our lives. I don’t find my self going any where form this discussion reason I am confused. The magic mirror inside me is behaving like a silent host.
Question: Do I ever have a normal day?
Ans: Yeah once, it was a Wednesday I guess….
Now here is a perfect example of me over exaggerating, again. How typical of me eh? I am not Bond; James Bond, though I wish I was like him. Talk about living a fantasy life, this guy drives BMW, get frisky with the hotties on weekdays, beat a shit out of the villain on Saturday and takes a day off on Sunday. Damn he’s good!!
I am not sure if anyone wants to hear this but last two weeks have been extremely hectic for me and I am sure the upcoming weeks will do equal justice. Do you know, meeting deadlines is an art and I am proud to announce that I suck at it. Hey don’t try to be judgmental with me okay. I am no superman and even superman can’t win in my situation when the teachers start grading you on the basis of favoritism. Imagine superman saves the world and spider man gets all the credit. But then I am no superman. But still I am crossing my fingers for the upcoming days. I hope they bring some luck to me. Rumor has it, there is a strike tomorrow it has been a while that the Karachiites have experienced any strike call lately. It’s sad because Karachi without strike is just like Islamabad without gay parades. I Keed! I Keed!
