Another gold moment

… except that I haven’t shared the first one yet. But I’m doing it now, okay? Let’s start!

Spoiler: It’s about university. And becoming a gold medalist. Twice.

Okay so remember when I posted that ‘when you’re happy and you know it’ kinda post about happy news and desi reactions and all that? I totally meant to share the news itself as well later but… you know me, and I know me, and well, yeah. So what happened was that I topped from my department in my BA (Honors) course. And then, now that is, I topped again in my Masters. Woohoo, Alhamdulillah!

What were my subjects? Glad you asked. Because it’s funny I never shared anything here. Yikes, I mean. I always meant to, though. Just like how I always meant to write about my vacations last (se bhi last? will have to check) year, about meeting some fav people from the blog, about university life itself, about this and that and everything. I had to write. (And I did, y’know. Just not here. Just not on a paper or a screen.) Also, obviously, I had to write about why I didn’t write any of those or whatever which is getting boriiing now AND ANYWAY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS GOLD MOMENT which means this should be a happy post and yayyy virtual cakes and all that. We were talking about my subjects?

My main one was URDU. YEP. Could have you guessed? I actually just tried to master (like, well technically I did just that so yeah?) my own language and I am super happy about that right now. My side subjects (also called minors/ subsidiary subs) were English literature and Psychology. And in the same duration I also did a two-year certificate and diploma course in Persian language. So as it looks, I was completely surrounded (entangled? absorbed?) with languages and literature, and then cultures and histories and zindagis and everything. It was a good time. Wait. I miss university.

But I also can’t wait for the good adventures ahead Inshaa Allah, and some day I’ll update you on that. Sup, you?

  1. Woahhhh I’m beyond impressed! Congratulations! That’s so cool! So now you can be some sort of language guru or something lol. But mannnn, this was amazing news!

  2. MashaAllah!
    You make me proud!
    Also wow I wish my parents let me pursue my interest in languages too 😢
    But well, since you’ve done your MASTERS in Urdu and minor in English and diploma on FARSI(💕), you can teach me 😛

  3. Well, after lifetimes we meet again, dear one. And what more auspicious time than this to cross paths again in life! Congratulations on your wonderful achievements! Hope you begin life with open wings. Aameen.

    And.. Sweet of your look for me throughout the years. Mamnoon azizam! *smiles*

  4. جناب اب تو آپکے دولت خانے کو اور چار چاند لگ گئے ۔۔۔

    Quite literally

    اب ہم غریبوں کی طرف نظرِ الفت کون کرے گا ؟

    ویسے بہت بہت مُبارک ہو حضور ۔۔۔ ہمیں تو ایک نہی لبا ۔۔۔ آپ نے دو اپنے قبضے میں کر لیے ۔۔۔ اللہ تعالٰی آپ اور ڈھیروں کامیابیاں عطا کرے ۔۔۔ یوں ہی صدا اپنی رحمت برسائے ۔۔۔ اور آپ کا دامن یونہی خوشیوں سے بھرا رہے ۔۔۔ ماشااللّہ ۔۔۔ آمین

    • Hahah hii, you!
      جزاک اللہ خیرا کثیرا
      بہت شکریہ! جناب آپ تو آتے ہی برسوں بعد ہیں۔ کہیں کیا احوال ہیں؟
      No but seriously, LONG TIME MANI! I hope everything is great at your end. And again, thank you so much for the kind prayers! 🙂

      “تم ہو ، کہ نہ ۔۔۔
      عشق وہی رہتا ہے ۔۔۔”

      ^ Is this part of a poetry? Sounds amazing.

      • میں بلکل صحتمند ، ہٹا کھٹا ۔۔۔ الحمد اللہ ۔۔۔

        بُرائی اتنی جلدی نہیں مرتی۔ نہیں تو آج دنیا آدھی خالی ہوتی ۔ ہی ہی ہی ۔۔۔ 😂

        آپ سُنائے حضور ، کیسے مزاج ہیں؟ بال بچے ٹھیک ہیں؟ 😜

        اور رہی بات دعاوں کی ، تو اُس میں ہم کنجوسی نہیں کرتے ۔

        اے کیڑی پلیوں پیسے دے کے دیندے آں ۔

        مفت کی ہیں ۔۔۔ جتنی مرضی دیتے جاؤ ۔ کم خرچ بالا نشین ۔ 😊

      • Bara okha kam ae Urdu type karna.

        Apni nazmain jab likhta tha… sab se zyada mout es kam se parti thi.

        Paper per tou banda likh leta hai … type karna azaab hai!

        Yakeen karlain, jab se comment likha tha , wait kar raha tha reply jab aaye ga… jab aa gya 3 din se itni fursat nai mil rahi kay jawab likh sako… ye to halaat hain!

        • Hahaha I know, I know. But I thought you loved typing in Urdu. :p

          Haalaat ka bhi ilm hai. Ap pehlay bhi isi tarah beech me aye the yehi koi do teen saal pehlay. :p

          Burai khatam honay se dunya adhi khali hojaegi ye nahi pata tha!

  5. I was afraid of this PS part.

    I knew you wouldn’t miss it and you would definitely say something about it.

    The premise is indeed intriguing to myself.

    Bus likh diya us waqt jo dil mai aaya. Per fil haal es dil kay nakhre uthane ki fursat nahi hai … 😅

    آج کل میں کہیں اور دل کہیں رہتا ہے
    تم ہو، کہ نہ ہو ، عشق وہی رہتا ہے

    • Ufff! That’s my first response to it!

      آج کل میں کہیں اور دل کہیں رہتا ہے
      تم ہو، کہ نہ ہو ، عشق وہی رہتا ہے

      This is something to be framed.

      Mainey pehlay Google pe search kia tha ke shayd kisi sha’er ke kalaam me ya kisi ghazal/ geet ke bol me mil jaye. Lekin phir pooch lia aur baqol apkay, poochna hi tha. 🙂 Share karne ke liye shukriya!
