All work and no play makes Johnny a fat boy! For sure I mean! What did ya expect?! These software jobs with their odd timings and sedentary styles are the perfect recipe to become chubby and overweight. So much for all my efforts of last year when I managed to lose no less than 7Kgs! (Seriously!) Now I would give just about anything to go back to that state :(!

'Rotund' describes me (with my considerable girth) just about perfectly. Damn you Mcdonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, Chocolates and M&Ms!! I'll have my revenge ya'hear! Speaking of M&Ms, I know there's a packet lying in the freezer right now and I know it won't be there by tonight! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah ...

Violence grips Karachi - AGAIN!

I woke up this morning from the plangent sound of my mobile alerting me to the receipt of a new message; who knew what calamity it was going to report. It was Teeth Maestro's message through the Twitter Karachi channel that over a 100 people had been killed in a bomb explosion near Benazir's convoy! What the #$#%$! I said to myself. If there was one thing we'd been grateful for the previous day, it was that there'd been no untoward incidents reported all day across the city. But sadly, the day ended on a bloody note - yet again.

The name Karachi must have become synonymous with violence and bloodshed for those foreign folk. No wonder they don't want to travel here, because you never know who might blow up what in pursuit of their twisted and hidden (or perhaps not so hidden) agendas. Another thing that saddens me is the sort of response from the so called "educated" people on a prominent place like Karachi MetBlogs. Just by going through the comments here and here, you could why we are the way we are. When the educated lot are truly "jaahil" by nature, when such people harbor feelings of hatred and animosity towards a fellow human being, no wonder the entire nation has become intolerant beyond recognition!

I don't know what else to say really; the death toll from last night leaves May 12 and 12 Rabbi ul Awwal calamities in the shadows. May ALLAH grant peace and patience to the dead and their families, and destroy all those connected with this heinous act and fail them in such sick and demented agenda of theirs. Amen.

Eid Mubaraks!

Ramzan whizzed by faster than ever for me this time! And here we are, once again, on the eve of that delirious day we all look forward to. Sadly, not even such a joyous occasion is riddled with controversy in this dear country of ours. The disunity is so evident! :( I'll leave the ranting to another post; for now, wishing everyone who reads this post bauhat bauhat EID MUBARAK! :)

God Bless us All - especially our country! Amen!

On the current political scene

This couldn't be more appropriate right now ....

Sham Democracy

I am left utterly speechless as the crème de la crème of corrupt politicians are once again joining hands to rule this dear country of ours! The sight of all those losers in National Assembly clapping and celebrating Mushy's re-election was truly sickening! I mean how freaking low can you get?! Selling your soul to the man who has America's blessings, and what about BB - who's going to pay back the billions she's looted and will loot over the next 5 years?!! What will happen to Zardari - will he be let loose to fill his pockets with state wealth YET AGAIN?! Are their previous deeds all forgotten, JUST LIKE THAT?!

No one has the right to absolve the criminals of the state - no one! Where is the Supreme Court now?! If there's any semblance of law and order left in this country, they should immediately take notice of this disgraceful ordinance and render it null and void at once!

I am simply outraged, incensed and vexed at the hypocrisy of the people who claim to be the representatives of the people of Pakistan. And don't even get me started about Mushy! He has lost what little credibility he had as a leader, as his actions have demonstrated that he'll do just about anything to stay in power - sanction the heinous acts of May 12, violate the constitution, exceed his term in office as Military Chief, hold more office than legally allowed, form alliances with known plunderers - the list goes on and on!

The stage drama of his re-election and the so-called "deal" with BB has exposed everyone and everything. Kinda ironic when you think that such looters are going to be leading the Land of the Pure!
