Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Me.

Hey there!

Welcome to my blog. It’s a randomly abstract combination of things I love and hate, and things that matter and matter not.

I write about everything. I love words! I love how one can paint emotions with a pencil, draw poetry with one’s feelings, and exhale life like that. I enjoy reading. I am fond of nights, rains, paintings. Maths and magic.

‘Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’ life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.’ Steve Jobs

Deeply inspired by nature, Sufi music and musings, creativity and literature– I am just another girl scribbling her life out.

Oh, and you call me Maria.

  2. That’s not how i’d describe you.

    December 13, 2011 at 9:42 pm

  3. Your description of ‘you’ reminds me of my daughter, Yolanda, who is in her mid thirties. She is like me, but she is also, like you. πŸ˜€

    Keep posting..!!

            September 25, 2013 at 9:43 pm

          • Well my friend, these are virtual awards that a blogger receives from another blogger and passes to yet another, whom they think deserves it. As in a ‘Versatile Blogger Award’ is given to those who write on variable topics, ‘ABC award’ is for ‘Awesome Blog Content’, Shine On and there are plenty others too.
            Usually, each of them comes with their own set of simple rules like mentioning stuff about oneself, or linking to your favorite bloggers. So an acceptance speech/post is written when it does.πŸ™‚

            September 25, 2013 at 11:00 pm

  13. Maria,
    sometimes Internet/blogging/books/diaries are not enough to come out of yourself, to come out of real yourself, you need to live what’s inside you. But i really like what u write, you are very much expressive.

    July 9, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    • Thanks a lot for your valuable comment! Writing and blogging are merely tools to let out feelings of exhaust and happiness, both. Its true that one must learn to live what is inside them. Thankyou for your appreciation and visit!πŸ™‚

    dont you think the quote you quoted fits practically on me :p

    yes thinking is a huge curse , i was following your blog already but i just scanned it and this is one well maintained blog, i am so much in awe of people who maintain their blog. also your about me is good. its originalπŸ™‚

    July 31, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    • Hey thankyou for stopping by and leaving your thoughts.
      Yes the quote does fit perfect, because you do have the courage to say whatever and not mind about itπŸ˜‰ I will be cautious though, in making comments there. ‘Stupid comments’ are badly-treated, nahee?πŸ˜€
      And thankyou for the appreciation. Keep visiting!

        July 31, 2013 at 12:27 pm

        • I know right? I mean, why won’t you be sarcastic to someone who comes on saying you are the weirdest!πŸ˜€
          Acha you are saying “keep your opinions to yourself” and then you are also saying “don’t be cautious though, have courage to say whatever you want to”. So does that mean, have courage to say whatever you want to, and get criticized more?πŸ˜›
          Well, I will certainly watch out then!πŸ˜‰

      • Hey thanks for the appreciation … thats what keep me going …πŸ˜€

        For urdu typing,

        Can you kindly tell me which Windows you are using or weather it Apple OS

        And in the mean time follow the link,

        http://urdu.ca/1

        In step 1 you can install Urdu Fonts … but since you can easily read my post i think it might already be installed.

        In step 2 you can install Phonetic Keyboard that will be used to type in Urdu.

        Also on step 2 page there will be a layout of Phonetic Keyboard if you are a novice at urdu typing … it will come in handy!!!

        Further instructions after i will know about your OS.

        Sadly … that is all I can do for my Egyptian Brothers for now …!!!😦

        August 29, 2013 at 10:50 pm

          • XP… I was hoping 7 … Its bin a long time since i used XP … Well there are instruction for XP on the page after 2nd step… let me know if you get stuck some where… okay!!!

            August 29, 2013 at 11:06 pm

          • What came of it … Did all of it worked out???

            August 29, 2013 at 11:45 pm

      • Also another question … i forgot to ask … do you post directly on word press or do you use Microsoft Word to directly post you blog post on word press…???

        August 29, 2013 at 10:52 pm

        • Well I post here directly.. i.e. without Word, except when I write a poem.

          August 29, 2013 at 10:56 pm

          • Well i kind of prefer to post using word always … its less fuss specially with Urdu posts…!!!

  40. Thanks for liking ‘She made me happy’ Maria.

    I don’t know if you checked out the film clip of the Divinyls performing Elsie.

    I put it on my personal website for readers who can’t access YouTube.

    • It doesn’t work there too. Says that the ‘plugin is vulnerable and needs updating’.

      October 12, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    • As in my browser’s fault. I need to update the plugin.

      October 12, 2013 at 5:11 pm

      • Alternately you can right click on the link, download the MP4 then double click on the file to play it without using the browser.

        That assumes you have an MP4 codex in your default media player.

    well, i don’t know how you stumbled upon my page – by random and regretted accident? but glad you did so i could find yours. i don’t buy into this “following” for the sake of getting followers, and could actually care less if any but a certain few look at my stuff. i will, however, be following you as yours is amazing in appearance and content – beautiful to view and jarring to read. no reciprocation expected or desire. don’t ever waste time and space following some shit that does not interest you. life is too short for that. i will be coming back often to devour every syllable and image. cheers

    October 14, 2013 at 12:20 am

    • Random stumble sounds right, but it wasn’t a ‘regretted accident’ for sure. Why’d you think that?
      Glad you liked my blog’s ‘appearance and content’ and so did I like yours, and I am equally glad to find out your space! Time waste? Trust me, I don’t like things for no reason. I like what I read, and what I ‘like to read’. And don’t worry, I won’t be following things of no interest.πŸ™‚
      Do come back again and I will be honored to have your presence here!πŸ™‚
      Best wishes.

  47. Kya aap mere chhote se blog ko apne keyboard se nikle kuchh alfaaz daan karna chaahengi?

    In short… would you be interested in a guest post on my blog?πŸ™‚

    October 19, 2013 at 7:40 am

    • Itnii Urdu?!πŸ˜‰
      Zarrah nawazi hae ap ki, but my guest post pe likhun gi kiya?πŸ˜› As in mjhy sochny samjhny me kaafi arsa lag jaega, phir bhi I am not sure if I will come up with something up to the mark.

      And look I didn’t respond with half as shock as you once did.πŸ˜‰ ‘Mae? Maria Imran? Aapke, yaani Arindam Saha ke blog pe guest post likhun?’πŸ˜€

      October 19, 2013 at 8:39 am

      • Urdu nahin Mahodayaa… Hindi hai… except ‘alfaaz’πŸ˜‰

        And BTW… Aap shock mein aakar same words nahin bol saktin… cheating hogi… ‘copyright violation’πŸ˜›πŸ˜€

        And upon that… aap shock mein kyun hain?πŸ˜›πŸ˜‰

        Anyways…
        I was thinking of inviting some of my valued readers for a guest post… So I invited you… I can give you a line to think upon… you may or may not use it.
        And time is not at all a problem… fursat mein likhein…πŸ™‚

        So… aap aa rahin hain na…? I would be privileged to host you…

        Do you want the line?

        October 19, 2013 at 8:59 am

        • Haha same words bolti to ziada cheating hoti!πŸ™‚
          Gimme the line, I will surely and happily write ‘something’ at least if you please-be-easy!πŸ™‚

          October 19, 2013 at 9:02 am

            October 19, 2013 at 9:04 am

          • Great. I will write a one-liner then. Or a haiku perhaps!πŸ˜€
            Acha no I will really try to do this. Though this isn’t as easy as you think it is!πŸ˜›

            October 19, 2013 at 9:07 am

          • Ok… Thanks!πŸ™‚

    so many beautiful pieces. what is it about you???

    October 22, 2013 at 8:41 am

    • What is it about me? Beauty comes from beholder’s eyes!

      October 22, 2013 at 1:54 pm

      • rjl2727

        yes, and most people neither see nor appreciate real beauty because they never look deeply. i see (behold) and appreciate.

        October 22, 2013 at 3:18 pm

        • Thank you!

          October 22, 2013 at 3:26 pm

          • rjl2727

            peace. keep bringing you beauty to light in your writing.

            October 22, 2013 at 3:28 pm

          • I will keep bringing ‘myself’ into my writing, beautiful or horrible that I don’t know.πŸ™‚
            P.S. My comments on your blogs are going in spam.

            October 22, 2013 at 3:40 pm

          • rjl2727

            what does that mean? i see you comments on my pages. is it something i am supposed to fix, and how?? technology is above my head, which is obvious by the simplicity of me blog design. le

            October 22, 2013 at 4:21 pm

          • It isn’t basically your fault, but all my comments are currently going to ‘spam’ folders. If you check out your comment manager, you’ll probably find two comments that I last made.

            October 22, 2013 at 4:25 pm

          • rjl2727

            i unspammed them. did it work?

            October 22, 2013 at 5:45 pm

          • Yup. Thank you!

            October 22, 2013 at 5:45 pm

          • rjl2727

            yea, i don’t know what the hell is going on with comments, or much else for that matter. i may need your help.

            October 22, 2013 at 9:32 pm

          • The issue was with my comments, and now that you un-spammed them, it has been resolved.
            Are you having a problem with your comments too?

            October 22, 2013 at 10:39 pm

          • rjl2727

            oh hell, i wouldn’t know. as you may have guessed, i am light years behind technology.

            October 22, 2013 at 10:53 pm

          • Um okay. I think all is well too.

            October 22, 2013 at 10:53 pm

          • rjl2727

            look under ‘music’ category for a song ‘box of rain’, and listen to it several times. it says nothing, and says everything, and is the most beautiful song i know. it’s by the grateful dead, who were to music what rumi is to poetry.

            October 22, 2013 at 5:44 pm

          • Listening to it. And loving it too.

    I be a painter. I be an over-thinker. I sketch. I read. I be an imaginary.
    I paint abstract. I draw abstract and I write abstract. So many I’s!
    It’s really nice to visit your blog though!πŸ™‚

    August 28, 2014 at 2:52 am

    • Oh God, cool. You draw abstract and you write abstract? I am definitely going to love your blog! Plus we have so many things in common.πŸ™‚

    September 15, 2014 at 10:54 am

    • Heeey. No, I didn’t. Allah Mian Ji. I need that book badly, once again. And Ishq Ka Ain. Will look for it in the library this week inshaAllah. Thank you for reminding and stopping by.πŸ™‚

      September 15, 2014 at 11:11 am

    • Pichlay maheenay ye dono kitabain parhny ka moqua mila. Bookfair laga tou pehly yehi dono khareed leen, kab se ishtiaq tha. Ishq ka Ain zabardast hai. Bohat. “Allah mian ji” se ziada yeh pasand ayi. Bohat shukriya in kitabon ka zikr kerny ke liye! JazakAllah.πŸ™‚

          • zindagi ki masroofiyat main ab parhne ka bohat kam waqt milta hai😦

            naseem hijazi ko parhain agar nahi parha to … aaj kal ke naye writers main bass umera ahmad ko parha hai .. un ke 2-3 novels achay lagay bass ..
            naseem hijazi ke mere sab se pasandeeda ye hain :

            Yousuf bin Tashfain
            Khaak aur Khoon
            Shaheen
            Dastaan e Mujahid

            Aur aap bhi koi books recommend kar dainπŸ™‚

            January 14, 2016 at 1:38 pm

          • Naseem Hijazi ko parha hai kuch mainy. Muhammad Bin Qasim aur khaak aur khoon ke naam yad hain. School library me in ki kafi kitabain hoti theen tou waheen se start liya.

            Aaj kal me bus yehi novels jinka aapne zikr kia tha unhay parha hai aur baqi kuch purani dastanain. Ab Ghazali aur Mumtaz Mufti parhungi aur kuch recommendable hua tou zaroor bataungi.πŸ™‚

  93. Hey I really like your background wallpaper? What does it say?

    June 16, 2015 at 12:13 am

    • Glad you do. That’s Thomas Cole’s ‘Manhood‘, third in the series of “Voyage of Life” which describes stages and phases we undergo. It’s about troubles, storms, and lack of control, etc. But a hint of serenity in the distant background…πŸ™‚

      “The boat is damaged and the tiller is gone. The river has become a terrible rush of white water with menacing rocks, dangerous whirlpools, and surging currents. “Amidst the chaos and confusion of the wild scene in the foreground, one catches a glimpse of possible serenity.”

  94. I LOVE THIS ABOUT SECTION. Mine is so lame in front of yours and some other bloggers’ that I have read from.πŸ˜› Khair, no big deal, it will be better some day, insha Allah. I also ADORE your theme. Too bad it wasn’t introduced when I was making my blog.:/
    Now, can I just tell you how much I love your writing? *Tries* *okay I can’t*
    I am so glad you found my blog cause thats how I found yours :’) Keep this up and you’ll do wonders.

    June 17, 2015 at 1:01 am

    • Haha thank you! Thank you. So much. YOUR ABOUT PAGE IS NOT LAME, BHUI. I love the way it is! I am glad you like my writings; it means more than you’d know. :’) Aur theme toh kuch arsa pehly change kia tha it was black before. I have changed A LOT of themes since the beginning of this blog. xD

      Equally glad to find your place. β™₯

      • Well I always think okay let’s change my theme but I feel like I’ll be betraying this one if i do soπŸ˜› I think someday I will surely when I overcome this stupid feelingπŸ˜€ Insha Allah.

        June 17, 2015 at 6:58 pm

        • Lol I know that feeling. Over-thinking is in the name. :’) Your present theme benefits text in a cool way though, suits the ‘green book’.πŸ™‚

          June 17, 2015 at 7:48 pm

          • Yeah I chose this one because of the same reason I left the green book undecorated and plain for ages. Even now it only has a few stripes of printed tape nothing more on the cover. I wanted the focus of the reader to be on the content, and let the words wander free all about. :’) And yes over-thinking is totally in the nameπŸ˜›

    I write about everything. I love words! I love how one can paint emotions with a pencil, draw poetry with one’s feelings, and exhale life like that. I like writing and reading. I am fond of nights, rains, paintings. Maths and magic.

    YAY! I like alot of things you do but MATH is NOT one of them,yet! <.<

    Are you sure you don't want me to call you Maria BajiπŸ˜„ HahaπŸ˜›

    But hey, congratulations!
    ^there is no escaping.πŸ™‚

    Okay on a serious note. I LOVE blogs that not only have stellar content but are also, aesthetically, PERFECT.
    And It’s safe to say, yours most definitely fills that criteria!πŸ˜€

        That Mysterious fella does help me a lot in getting to know new awesome people and forcing em’ to come meet me.πŸ˜› She’s like our personal megaphone.

        AND BTW, ToW (abbreviations is sorta my thing..) welcomes you, whenever ya like! :$ I’d be ehh, a-word-even-greater-than-hounred by your presence.

        *I have SUCH a horrible habit of blabbering. Sorry if I wrote you a novel instead of a comment..I can’t help it. :s *
