It Is More Harmful to Compromise One’s Own Beliefs Than to Adhere to Them

By |December 6th, 2016|

Beliefs are an integral part of human life. In fact, most of us shape our lives according to our well-established beliefs. Beliefs provide us an impetus to follow a course of action, to be disciplined and to find satisfaction in practicing our faiths. Beliefs are not devoid of reasoning. Humans tend to lay a strong logical foundation for their fervent beliefs.  Ask a Muslim, he’ll give you a hundred and one reasons behind the sacrifice of animals as instructed by his beliefs and similarly a Hindu has his reasons to not practice this belief.

If we believe that life is not permanent then how can we suppose that our days will remain the same? This life is continuously in the state of change. Day fades into Night, moon replaces sun and even our habits change with time. Change is inevitable and from past 4.5 billion years, earth has been changing. Now let’s talk about humans.

By |August 21st, 2016|

Whether it is a lesson in class or life, you always get to understand it better through examples.  Especially for children, mere moralizing is not enough. The supreme way to spread good values is by setting personal examples for children from early age.  Little kids, especially boys, act and behave like spider man, superman or batman. Why? , because it is not only said but has been proven that children learn by imitating.

Today a non-school going kid knows all rhymes and alphabets by heart since it’s the world of technology. If kids pick up so easily what is shown in […]

In this 21st century, the earth is loaded with people’s narcissism. Narcissism, according to Wikipedia, can be described as ‘excessive interest in or admiration of oneself and one’s physical appearance’ and to speak my mind I see nothing wrong in admiring yourself. In this age of narcissism, our society pictures it always in a negative way like someone arrogant, vain or egocentric. Although it’s arduous to love a narcissist but if we go a little more deep in its scrutiny, we can get to know how we can use it for our own advantages. Today people need to revise the […]

Freedom of speech is something that is authorized to every person. No matter rich or poor, young or old, every person holds different opinion and it’s their right to express it. The definition of Freedom of speech is that every person has the right to express his/her opinion without the fear of government or society. This is why it is said ‘Speech is not limited to public only’. Being individuals, we are all different. We all possess different ideas, tastes and thinking.  Freedom of speech is something like freedom of thoughts.  If we are comfortable with each other’s freedom of […]

Abdul Sattar Edhi; A Symbol of Altruism

By |July 9th, 2016|

Pakistan is a country notorious for corruption, extremism, gender inequality, poor rankings on human development index (HDI) and bad governance. Seeing this, a random thought knocked one’s mind. How could a country survive for 68 years in the midst of the such malpractices by civil military leadership and a general apathy of people towards the state of affairs in the country? Perhaps, the most appropriate answer of this question can be deduced from the following paragraph.

The charisma, which keeps Pakistan moving along and progressing against all odds, is the unconditional support and determined efforts of people like ‘Abdul Sattar Edhi’. People […]
