The Fault in Our Stars!

the fault in our stars

I couldn’t stop crying in every bit of watching “The Fault in our stars”. Though people say it’s a teens movie but it was beautifully scripted. Leaving hope for people who are dying.

Everyone is dying eventually. Some go fast and some make it longer. Movie shows you how can you live every second you have in your hands.

Live your dreams, make it fullest and die the way so you could be remembered by everyone. Leave your impression on everyone’s heart.

When you die, leave the hope of living behind.

And I am dying! so do you!




We have number of channels, broadcasting hundreds of Dramas but none can stand in front of PTV. Nevertheless era of Drama has left behind so far which could gather the audience from every city and make roads become crowd less.

Countless Drama serials in line by amazing writers are the worth possession of PTV. 80’s and 90’s were the Golden Eras without doubt which unanimously broadcasted An-Kahi, Dhoop Kinarey, Waris, Zaib un Nisa and none other than TANHAIAN.

Shahzad Khalil’s “Tanhaian” was family Drama based on the domestic issues which was not only presenting the serious issues in light mood but also highlighting the family bond. Above all cast of the Drama kept the freshness till end without allowing audience to switch off.

Zara (Shehnaz Sheikh), Sunnia (Marina Khan), Zain (Asif Raza Mir), Kutbuddin in short Kabacha (Behroz Sabzwari), Aani (Badar Khalil) and rest of the cast including Durdana Butt, Ishrat Apa and Qazi Wajid.

The entire cast with strong characters grabbed the attention of every single and did complete justice with their existence in “Tanhaian”.

Though Shehnaz Sheikh didn’t appear in any other character in any other Drama after Tanhaian but her magical performance couldn’t be reciprocated by any other actress till now.

Asif Raza Mir was shown in one of his best characters ever which still refreshes his entry in PTV world.

Last but not least PINK PANTHER was the icon of the Drama World. Marina Khan’s (Sunnia’s) Pink Panther.

Alphabets of 2009

I strongly got the idea to write History of Pakistan 2009 in Alphabetical order by INSTEP Mag of “The News”.

Tried at my best knowledge to do justice, rest nothing is perfect so excuse in advance. Moreover A-Z of my readers is welcomed on my Blog, will definatly publish by their names…. 🙂

A for Ali Hamza…

Ali hamza the tonba player and singer in Coke Studio Session II got popularity by his Naat “Madiney Main” and ofcource part of Noori. Year 2009 was surely the year of Ali Hamza as a brilliant upcoming talent.

B for Bomb disposal Squads

Surely 2009 was the year to highlight bomb disposal squads and their activities regarding bomb diffusing and reaching on blast spot after huge disaster…. They might be shown the V for victory to encourage; we hope.

C for Coke Studio “Dastan e Ishq”

Coke Studio Session II shocked the Pakistan by fetched up the polished Ali Zafar singing “Dastan e Ishq”, the melody, vocals and Ali Zafar’s tuneful voice made a bloom in music industry of Pakistan; the Sufi poetry with new age band surely hit the hearts of listeners. 2009 was a complete bracket for Ali Zafar’s “Dastan e Ishq”.

D for Dumb Soaps

Star plus Soaps no doubt casted huge after effects on Pakistani Drama themes which are converted to Indians Paranormals whilst lost their charm and audience. 2009 was the year of dumb soaps with Zero story line and low standard shows but ofcource bundle of jewellery and Sarhi’s which they use to wear at night too and yea how can plaster makeup be ignored in all such dumb plays; thumbs up.

E for Elite DJ’s

Every other show is messed up with DJ’s Vj’s and Rj’s and their nonsense talk can only be understood by themselves, they behave Elite, speak Elite, act Elite; Non of their behavior represents the gesture of normal human. What the heck are these shows only to be watched by Elite class of society or the poor mediocre can have the privilege to enjoy watching TV for quiet less time? 2009 Rocked with Elite Anchors.

F for Foreign policies

Foreign policies were adopted in 2009 not only in political games but also in every other aspect of life… Fashion, media, Dressing, Style, Is there anything left to mention; O really Religion too. Look around, don’t you feel foreign touch in religious behavior? We better need to wake up before it’s too late.

G for Grand shows

I was amazed to watch TV shows, award shows and what not shows, Pakistani shows with Indian Songs, dressing, style and stage acts. Every other channel wants to put behind every next channel to be the most watchable. Are they really? I don’t feel comfortable watching all such nonsense; do you?

H for Hollywood

2009 was the year of Hollywood in my opinion as neither Lollywood nor Bollywood could rock the world. It’s an impression that Bollywood movies seem influenced by Hollywood though they couldn’t be copy cat but their masala drama outweigh…

I for Independence

2009 was surely the year of independence with respect to all aspects, morality, dignity, modesty, religion, honesty and ofcource corruption; our society has become independent of everything, thumbs up.

J for Jal

Jal rocked with their new song “Kash key yeh Pal”, the melodious with rhythm and fragrant vocals; I am a die hard fan or I could die. 2009 vows for jal.

K for Kayamat

2009 was the year to predict Kayamat “Dooms Day” by all nuts, and they ended up on 2012. Crappy predictions by jerks had year 2009.

L for Local brands

Local brands achieved local and international market with bang in 2009, it’s another thing that they could launch their brands in Punjab and Sindh but couldn’t skim in NWFP and Baluchistan. Fashion festival of November 2009 truly proved the grasping International Media.

M for Madhab (Religion)

Madhab (Religion) was the most controversial phenomenon of the current year which suppressed every next issue of 2009, Religion in Politics, Religion in Media, and Religion in Social activities, hence neither was left without making Madhab a hard core issue with respect to every next activity. From humanitarian to Non Profit organizations, From Political agenda to Media conspiracies; unanimously every single took full benefit by wearing sheep skin. “Hum sab Umeed sey hain”.

N for NRO

National Reconciliation ordinance or Nation Ruin Objective; Pakistan is facing and will face the challenges ahead. Hopefully all debts with interests would be released by collecting all loot money back from black bulls. NAB rocked in 2009.

O for Orkut

It’s debatable to talk about social forums like Orkut, facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and so many. I am again switched to Orkut cause of some reasons of my interests but mostly Orkut lost the attention of its users in 2009 by raise in Facebook monopoly. Though both have their own trades to grab maximum audience but Orkut is more skimmed for those who actually want to be facilitated by social forums for not only to be socialized but to learn useful as well.

P for Pakistan

No one can deny the fact that 2009 was the year of Pakistan with respect to Al-Qaeda, terrorism, Corruption, Political decline, Bomb Blasts, Economy rapture and American’s focal point. No other channel is publicizing without the news about Pakistan whether National or International. But still after being morally and ethically declined, I must say “Proud to be Pakistani and be Pakistani”.

Q for Quaid e Azam

Portrait of Quaid e Azam is restored in Parliament house in 2009, as we all know it was replaced by BB and Bhutto. Did they bring Pakistan on World’s map? Are we breathing in Pakistan cause of them? No one in near or far can replace Quaid e Azam; Voice of Pakistanis, isn’t it?

R for Rohail Hayat

Coke Studio is no doubt the most fabulous version of music to bring for down audience by Rohail Hayat in 2009 which not only grabbed the public but also brought up their fused passion.

S for Saein Zahoor

Saein Zahoor and his vigilant voice heard in Coke studio which lifted up the deprived citizens by his “Aik Alif”. Singer of the year award goes to Saein Zahoor.

T for Twitter

Twitter a socialized forum for short messages and blogs with featured applications signify an impact on entire world by grabbing the people around the globe related to every next profession. 2009 comprise the world in bottle neck by Twitter.

U for “Us”

Us weekly Magazine of “The News” lost its allure in 2009 and couldn’t receive enough reviews in the year whilst readers didn’t judge it to the extent it was expecting; down expectations.

V for Vampire

2009 was the year of Vampire which hilariously mad the watch outs across the globe by “Twilight” and “Twilight saga: New Moon”. A human fall in love with Vampire; truly unrealistic but accepted by the viewers up to max. Go go Vampires; Woohooo!.

W for Waziristan

Which countryman doesn’t know about Waziristan and brutal 2009 history of drone attacks by US on Waziristan civilians, the worst situation started blooming in Pakistan with the situation of war created in Waziristan and adjacent areas. Can anyone deny the fact?

X for X-President

X-President of Pakistan Pervez Mushurraf remained big highlight in 2009 among media and played role to be existent and non-existent directly or indirectly in Pakistani politics, critical situation, Economic downfall, suicide attacks and getting worst than most worst incidents across the country by giving his dialogue time to time. God knows; who will change the fate!

Y for Youth

Pakistani youth with their energetic and motivated obsession to cope with the critical situation and continue to fight for their motherland proved to be the patriotic and passionate with respect to their norms and responsibilities in favor of their own Pakistan. 2009 woke up the youth, hats off!

Z for Zeb and Haniya

Zeb and Haniya shinned as a new talent through Coke Studio Session II by singing “Paimona” and “Chal diye”, made a commendable history in 2009.

Peer e Kamil

The inspiration, the stimulation, the brainwave, everything suits to the must read Novel Peer e Kamil by Umaira Ahmed. I was referred by one of my colleague three years back saying :If you haven’t read Peer e Kamil, you read nothing”, the statement amused me to the end that I ended up issuing novel from library and started first page but the Story haunted me like I couldn’t resist to read it till last word in one go. It was not infatuation but seemed reality that remains to be converted into reality by many but no one dares to take a step.
From the cover page it seems a book based on Islamic values or religion but it’s more then its cover portrays. Writer brought the story in black and white in a manner that couldn’t be done better then that anyway. It just grasps the person in its illusion and mesmerizes the world which gives the affection as everything is unreal and we are just lying in fantasy of being Muslim. We are impudent living in a shell of our own designed life along materials and luxuries.


Story of Elite class girl, who left everything for the Love of Allah and his messenger Muhammad Mustafa SWS; her origin was different, her values were burdened over her by her family; Qadyani.
Story of Elite class boy with the IQ Level 150+, but who learnt to follow the Sirat e Mustaqim by the person with ordinary IQ Level. Who was living hell and beyond ecstasy was the only question for him, but his origin was Muslim Family.
Umama and Salaar; characters will teach you how to straighten your lines and where to head, who is there to follow and what can bring you out from Darkness. Where is the light and what should be the motive.
Vocabulary will be ended but words couldn’t count the immense novelty of Novel. For me; it changed my life in many ways. I bought it, read it uncountable times and every time I feel more stirred of it.
