Pillow houses

When we were younger, we made these play-houses out of blankets and pillows. There is this small area under a fixed computer table in one of our bedrooms where we would sit, and because it would be so hot we’d also put a portable fan to the side. Then we would close the frontal opening with stuff and take different roles.

A few days ago when my nephew was here, I fixed a pillow house for him. He was sitting by the wall where a rolled carpet stood leaning, and he was sad and angry because his uncle had refused to share the computer with him. I saw that his eyes were brimming with tears—I mean, can you visualize that? A three year old gorgeous guy who is just about to cry? So I came into action and pulled pillows from my bed. Then, with the rolled-carpet as our main pillar, we put a pillow-gate and a pillow-wall, and went inside. Excited as we now were, we played pretend, took pictures, laughed together, and once again a different world was created in our lives: awesome and away.


Just felt like writing it down here. On a side note, Eid Mubarak, you!! 🙂 Also, as 6th September marked my blog’s 6th anniversary, here’s a yayay. *passes balloons*

To be honest, I used to be very passionate about blogging before but now I’m not. I still do love this space like home but things have since then changed. My stats tell me this is only my 10th post for the present year, which, if compared to a yearly average of 80+, is of course amazingly low. HOWEVER, I do believe I will reclaim it soon enough like I want to. Not too soon but still soon inshaAllah. I hope to do that.

LOVE. Lost and found.

I love it to bits, Pamela.

Some connections are just meant to be. And no borders, orders, or fences can help separate those. This is one such and I am EXTREMELY grateful!
Thanks a million, and another million! YOUR EIDI MADE MY DAY. ❤

A Hindu married a Muslim,
And two sisters grew in the womb,
Little then did they know,
They will build each others tomb…

Borders are like birds,
They will fly wherever they want to.
Nations are like clouds,
They will drift wherever they like to.

But people are the skies,
They will have to stay back,
To witness all birds and clouds,
Good-bad, light and dark.

Soldiers, wars, battles, gun fights,
Matters trivial, wrongs and rights…
One after the other, shot after shot,
The opportunity for love- lost.

Mountains, rivers, valleys and snow.
What do we fight for,
Do we really know?

We are warring over the Indus,
So much blood, so much loss!
Diplomacy…

It’s Mae-Mae Time!

‘Look, there’s such a rush! What are those so many people doing over there? That huge group circling that van, what’s all the hip hop for? Or has the vehicle suffered from a serious accident? WHAT ARE THEY ALL UP TO? Oh move aside, I have GOT TO LOOK!’

And lo! A royal cow has arrived in our locality, for tomorrow’s Baqra Eid!!! And oh, not just one, there are four of them!

Its Eid-ul-Adha, or Baqra Eid as we call, the second Eid that Muslims around the globe celebrate (this one after the holy Pilgrimage), in the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim and Ismail (A.S)’s exemplary sacrifice.

This event brings a lot of happy (and yummy) moments together, that start even before the day comes, and lasts long after Eid is finally over.

After a long wait when the cattle finally arrives, (not to mention the mandi process since oops, I’ve NEVER been there) that excitement to play and feed and taking them for a walk and then finally having them slaughtered *tears* and then feasting with those DELICIOUS steaks and seekh-kababs and this and that, and that, and that, it’s SCRUMPTIOUS!!

This Eid also brings a lot of cherish-able moments with it, the best of which include those MEGA-RUNS when one of the bechari goats (or in some cases, a wild buffalo) runs away and a crazy crowd start running after it, leaving rest of the world (or women) laughing behind!

Or the other way round.

Or the other way round.

Anyways, I wish you all a very happy Eid! Party hard and don’t forget to care for those deprived.

Eid Mubarak 😀

Eid Mubarak!

Variety of piquant,scrumptious and finger-licking dishes take place of the Ramzan’s special fried items,samosas and rolls and the beautiful moon announces the event of Eid!!!

The blissful day of Eid is a blessing of God for all Muslims who fasted in the month of Ramadhan.This is the day for which everybody is excited,from toddlers to wrinkled-poor to rich!This is the day when all discriminations,all woes and worries and enemities are forgotten and all hearts sing merrily-the praise of Almighty!

Yesterday Eid-ul-fitr was celebrated with full swing in all Muslim countries!The beatitude and euphoria makes each heart happy.Hugs and caresses are spread to deliver the message of love!the night before Eid,popularly known as Chand Raat is the night when Almighty judges our deeds and bleeses people who made Him and His people contened during Ramadhan!On this night,there is a huge traffic in shops where women tend to buy elegant,beautiful dresses,fragnant perfumes and appealing jewellery!

My eid day started after Fajr when I along with my sisters tidied up our home.Every nook and corner was cleaned and decorated.Then we dressed ourselves beautifully and enjoyed wonderful sweet dishes.sheer khurma  and kheer are special sweet-dishes for eid!Giving of EIDI was the most wonderful part! The television and media kept all Muslims informed of the flood that had hit Pakistan so that we could share their tears and keep them happy,like us!Afterwards we went to our neighbours to wish them the blissful day (and receive eidi!!).Later I will goto a party at  my grandmother’s house and I hope I will enjoy alot there!

EID MUBARAK TO YOU ALL!
