I Heart PSL<3

PSL is the abbreviation form of Pakistan Super League. It has been created in 2015. The Pakistan Super League is a professional Twenty20 cricket franchise league in Pakistan. Its Headquartered in Lahore. The PSL is the major professional cricket league in Pakistan. It has 5 member clubs.

PSL is a professional cricket league in nature but it is more than that to Pakistani cricket lovers. The PSL had spread the liveliness everywhere in Pakistan. Pakistani cricket lovers have filled the internet with memes about league, its players, their performance, the victors, the losers, the sixers, the fours, the passion, the gratitude, the harmony between member clubs, the friendliness among the opposing captains and players, everything about PSL is the party to Pakistan cricket lovers.

Every match of PSL is breathtaking. Every catch of PSL has been heart-wrenching. Every four in PSL has ensued among the dances, joyful screaming of the crowd and jumps of the audience in the stadium. PSL has filled the enthusiasts with the joy that we had seen never before. It had brought us a different kind of happiness to the national feelings we possess. I am not exaggerating at all. PSL has done all this most certainly.

The most amazing thing about PSL is that there is no rivalry among the member clubs. The captains of the member clubs are the players in national cricket team resulting in the most amicable environment. The players and captains greet and felicitate each other after each play. Though two players had an assault in the pitch but later they officially apologized each other. These sentiments make the PSL one of a kind.

Another amazing thing about PSL is that the coaches, captains and the players are seem very emotionally attached to their performance. The scenes that displayed on TV when Darren Sammy was run out in the important playoff match, he was seen crying. In the same match, Sir Vivian Richards was seen emotionally disturbed in the last over the match for his team and jumped right after that when team made it to the finals in the very same match. PSL is all about passion. The passion had made PSL very popular and made it to the hearts of the Pakistani Cricket lovers.

PSL is all about the highest quality cricket. Every catch, every fielding, every bowling and every batting had been of the highest quality during the matches.

I have supported Peshawar Zalmis. They have played fantastically during the match and gave us entertainment throughout the matches. They were defeated by the 2nd qualifiers of the finale. Today is the Finale. After Zalmis, I support the Quetta Gladiators. I congratulate the winner in advance. We all wait for PSL till next year.



Equality is Inherent!

In our society today, I see settled superior and inferior positions. Most individuals desire superiority as a result while indulging themselves in a task. Competition is a recent phenomenon as we can see it. Society has been divided into most talented and less talented people. But does talent determine the superiority and inferiority tags on people?

There are two kinds of knowledge and skills we are imparted. The knowledge and skills for survival and propagation are prerequisite for the formation of life. The knowledge and skills transmitted by education are collectively called the culture of a human being. So, former is built in knowledge and latter is a learned knowledge. Today, competitions designate the superiority and inferiority certificates to the participants which in return divides the society into winners and losers. The question arises: Is it necessary to divide people into winners and losers? Many would agree that competition is not prerequisite to progress, development and stability of the individual minds. Arrangement of competition invite rivalry and resentment more than healthy competition objective intended. Few things aren’t just inadequate because they’re done to excess; few things are prevailing destruction inherently. Competition, which simply means that one person can succeed only if fellow beings fail, is one of those things. Competition does not define the winners, I reckon. The trouble lies with competition itself. The best amount of competition for everyone is none at all. The healthy competition is a contradiction term itself. It may be said that it is an extreme view but competition serves nothing but failures to everyone in the competition except one person.

The relationships I cherish, the home I have, the threads woven clothes which I wear, the water I consume, the colors I see, the grain I intake or the breath I inhale are all things which every human being does and possess. Every entity on this planet Earth have these things. The nature has provided everyone with certain rights and values equally. By virtue of natural law giveaways, the equality prevails over everyone. That is why, competitions can not snatch away the equality of human being.

There are many questions which we should ask. So Where do we excel to superiority? Do I excel to superiority when I cook the recipe in the best way? Or was it that the ingredients turn out the recipe into divine bites or swallows? Or were the farmers perfectly trained in sowing the seeds into the soil? Or the oil company provided with best quality? WHO is to be appreciated and given medals? There is always a chain that follows everything we do today. Without the best input of the other human or field, the global village would shutter down in a blink of an eye. No one is superior. Everyone is equal.

To sustain a life, there are some requirements. These requirements are water, food and air. One has to work their butt off to earn these requirements. Today, if some do not have these requirements in excess are poor and those who possess these requirements in excess are rich. But where does the doctrine lie that those who possess these requirements in excess have superiority over those who does not possess them in excess? Surely, there is no such doctrine. And the fact is deducted that rich are in no way superior to poor. Excess of food or cloth does not designate the person superior over other.

The You gets exposed to death in an accident or so just like any other human being. What then would help you sustaining the pride you are giving rise to? Your pride dies with you. Pride is a negative energy. How about prevailing positive energy of thankfulness and equality in your life? The death might stop giving you impression an end to your pride. The death might start seeming a beginning in itself.

Ethically a human being is in no way subject to humiliation. The situations, conditions or position of a human being would deteriorate but he is in no way a lesser object than any other human being. The equality prevails over Everyone. Anything can change or be altered in the human being life but the status of equality can not be snatched away.

Unexpected Turns – Naveeda Shaikh

I wrote it before 2 years! Happy reading it after 2 years.

Pakistani English

Unexpected turns estranges us only within blowing up our every wealth of emotions we accumulate for so long. Unexpected turns are areas of life that I shudder to judge or make any opinion about. Nonetheless I reckon unexpected turns are always healthier for life. In the beginning, we feel odd while dealing with streets we tend to be given at unexpected turns. We shiver at trying new things. We talk and walk newly subtracting every moment we lived before; I think that’s the reason why cheaters/betrayers in life are so much loathed.

Any cheater would do nothing but subtract moments of happiness from the next person’s life, who live it with full honesty, enthusiasm of living up to conditions and situations, the rainbow colors of lively promises at the heart and the beautifying rays of love in life, but a betrayer is only cheating the person and passing time with…

Another Black Day

Pakistan is a very beautiful country with green landscapes, golden deserts, breathtaking valleys, mountains, dry deserts of Sindh, islands and seas and green fields. Every landscape is pure and serene, bathed in blood of innocent citizens and martyrdom of soldiers. Every ‘scenery’ that we citizens see is ‘Pakistani’ due to the bravery and sacrifices of the best men and women recruited in army, naval and air forces. My salutations to them and their families; those who bear the grave sorrows and emptiness entire life.

We are a nation who have stood the worst times. The most grievous and sorrowful event happened on 16-12-14. The Sixteen-twelve is a black day in the history of Pakistan. The little dreams travelled to the APS Peshawar and were erased there with the gunshots by animals who wore skin of the human being. 148 dreams settled down in coffins and were buried in graveyards. The entire nation felt broken and crooked. Not only our hearts were heavy but our souls were shattered. 16-12-15 refreshes the scars of our hearts. We hadn’t forgotten this event till now that today another event of the same kind took place. Bacha khan university was attacked by 10 terrorists in which 25 persons have made their journey to the afterlife this morning. Another Black Day happened in the history of Pakistan. Thanks to the Allah swt less casualties have been reported til now.

I woke up around 11:00 am. The volume of television was unusually loud. I went to drawing room and stood shocked reading headlines. All I could do was to pray for victims, their families, martyrs and their families.

This is another effort of terrorist to disable us towards progress and development. They want to instil dread and terror in our souls which they would never accomplish. We are a brave nation. We have stood the testing times since our inception. The military coups, the political persecution and civil war began the breakdown of the country. The military coups and democracy strife wasn’t enough  that the terrorists organizations entered into the scenario. They kept terrorizing entire Pakistan in which 50,000 innocent citizens have died. The conditions of Pakistan have deteriorated since 9/11 2001. The blasts on mosques and Imam Bargahs, the killings of politicians, the blasts in busy areas of larger cities of Pakistan, abduction of children and later involving them in terrorists organizations are one of those events which had determined us to counter terrorism even more enthusiastically. Zarb e Azab was waged against these animals and it has proved to be the best revenge.


The surprising visit of Indian Prime Minister to Pakistan and then Pathankot airbase attack which resulted in daunting debates in Indian media channels wherein the accusations were hurled towards Pakistan including threats to avenge Pakistan of it led to the attacks in Pakistan. Those attacks in series count today’s Bacha Khan University attack. Death to the terrorists and ‘perpetrators’!

The Pakistani nation has tolerated all the times with great endurance which has resulted in great vow of counterterrorism. Pakistan and Pakistani nation is an exemplary result in counterterrorism studies around the globe. I’m proud of my nation.

HBD the Loveliest Annie

There are many relations that we live. Some relations connect with heart. Some relations are connected with us by blood. Some relations we choose to make. Few happen to us at the time when the freshness and new presence is needed to disparage the sadness. Such is the relation of mine and mine soul Sister’s. “This relation is equivalent to any blood relation,” testifies the heart.

I wish Annie lots of wishes on her birthday, lots of happiness, love, care and joys. I love you Annie, very much.

It had been five years since we met yet the freshness of our sisterhood stays as lovable as it was back then. We both have been to hell and back in these years. She wiped mine and I her when the time was troubled. We both bullied time and made our stars fight for us. Annie is my whole and sole pillar of support. She knows what’s going on in my life literally and what’s keeping me low and sad. The same way I know hers. I have been gifted by Allah swt the sweetest and loveliest sister Annie.

Annie loves solo travelling, climbing, hiking, living in wilderness and all the sports. On the other hand, I’m opposite. I like to live in one place, gather memories and live by them. We both are quite different. Allah swt has made us like real sisters. Sisters are at north and south poles yet they share a bond which is their moral support, emotional support and psychological support. I would not have survived my tough times if she had not been complaining about cold in Gilgit and thus making me feel much comfortable in very warm Karachi. Hehe

To me, she is the most beautiful person I’ve met inside and out. She is very quick and intelligent. She is what a guy dreams for! But hey you have to pass that check process arrangedby me to get her. Whooa! I’m quite possessive for her as an elder sister.

We love to cook together. We bake pizzas, brownies, pretzels and others. I cook a recipe, and tell her. She cook and asks me. What wonderful times we are gonna have when we will cook lasagna and Apple pie.

Once again a very happy birthday to you, my love. I tried to write a few line’s poetry for you. I hope you like them:

We are soul sisters who share
Love and care
Lends hand to each other when
Troubled and shattered
Being different from each other but
share the satisfaction and smiles
We are the soul sisters who share
Love and care

Too Many Advises a Headache

There are varieties of headaches in our lives. One of them includes the advises section we become used to. The advises are a headache because sometimes we don’t achieve them or sometimes we feel literally bored acting upon them. We end up becoming more confused of what to do and what not to. As it happens with me often times, to keep my loved ones happy with their suggestions for me, I follow their advises. At times, I am making myself look like a conservative girl by wearing their suggestions, at times I am looking for something better to eat when I cook their choices and at times I am studying a subject of their choices and reaching the deepest levels of boredom of life.

I am not saying that everyone is bored of advises. It is a phase in everyone’s life when we don’t want advises. We want to do what we want to do. Must, must not, should and should not bores us to sitting in front of tv 24/7. The way maths, science, computer science and anything like this bores me more the same way things you don’t like in this phase might bore us more, irritate us more than usual times and to cure this, just do what you want to do.

It does not affect me so much because of the moderate and good family and people around me. It does affect many fellows dangerously in their life leading to very serious problems in their life. For example, many are advised to (read: told to) from selecting a subject as a major or optional to selecting a life a partner. Narrow mindedness of the conservatives affect the youth excessively. The youth is at times told to follow the usages that are 1000 years old or are out of fashion leading to their embarrassment and feeling of depression in their life. It depends upon person to person how they take a usage or tradition; but imposing them might derange the individuals only. These depressions, embarassments and impositions are reasons of failures of youth at extent.

From the days of my school and college, I had seen many girls only doing what their parents or guardians (brothers) are expecting them to do. They had 0.00% of themselves in things they act upon. It is indeed a big crime to impose things on an individual and killing their favorites, desires, wants and might their talent that way.

Too many advises does have a positive side but that is very little. Too many advises can be very guarding but misleading too. Too many advises are a headache which can not be escaped from or erased from life itself.

I Am Naveeda Shaikh

I am Naveeda Shaikh. I am a very ordinary person. I live a very ordinary life. I try to be good at things I like to do for myself and for people I love. At times, I feel depressed like there is nothing to live for. At times, I feel like a blooming flower ready to shine my world. At times, I am too excited. At times, I am very much nervous. At times, I am too confident to let any perception of any other person affect me. And this is me all the time.

I reckon friends are lifeline to life. If you have gathered a thousand achievements in life without friends, you have achieved materialistic goals and had missed all the exciting though sometimes nostalgic fun which friends bring in with emotions and great positive vibes. Friends convey us true meaning of life. I have my girlfriends who make me feel special at times, who cross a big and wide smile on my face with their one text, one come by, one phone call and one hug. Being felt special in life is a gift which friends can give better than any other thing.

Avoidance of negativity in life is quite inevitable. We all have to go throw them; deal with them. We all have to at one time or another feel the least to praise the most. There is a lot of negativity in life which depresses us. In order to remain positive all the time, we should not ignore the negating thoughts. We should deal with them, make our way through it by sharing them the person we trust and reach another level of patience and good being. By ignoring and escapism, we only worsen our ability to continue being happy.

World is the most beautiful place to live in. I love rains very much. I love the earthy scent when rain falls on dry soil. I love rainbows when it had rained. I owe to travel the world, gather a lot of beautiful clicks of dry, wet, icy and green lands, and learn hello in different languages.

I am a law student. Law is very dry subject to study and keep as profession. The question comes to my mind why I have thought to keep it as my profession. Then, the answer sometimes is vivid and sometimes is ambiguous because I have not completed law yet.

I look forward to posting more. Do introduce yourself if you like my write up.
