A Happy Eid Post!!!

                

         Hey    Dear    Friends!



    Hope   all    of   you   are   celebrating   life   with   grace   and   gratitude   as   each    breath   that   we   take   is   chance   to   acknowledge    the     blessings   of   our   creator   and   serve    humanity   most    possible   way    that   we   can.



   Tomorrow    Muslims    all   over   the   world   celebrating   the   Eid   festival   and    everybody   looks   like  in   rush   to   get   prepare   for   it .   I   just   got   back   from   the   market  which   was    packed   with   people   mostly   ladies   who   were   buying   Mehandi   [ most  important item to  decorate  hands] and  bangles . I   was   nervous   to  see   such   crowd  as   i  was  not   expecting    it   at   this   hot   sunny   day   with  43 c  temp  but   noting   could    decrease   the   enthusiasm   of   people  so   i   just   bought   bangles   in   hurry   and   asked   hubby   to    get   me   out   of    here.

       Chand   Rat  celebrations  by   girls are  most  popular event  before  Eid mornng 

I     wear   bangles    for  only   one   day   of   Eid  just   to   count   myself   among   normal   ladies  around  ,i  do   it   to   remind   myself   my   teenage    life   when   on   Chand  Rat [moon's first night  of   new   month]  my   parents   used   to   take   us   to   the   market  and   buy  bangles  and  Mehandi . Ladies    though   keep    shopping   for   Eid   whole   month   but   these   two   items   they   leave   for   chand  rat . 

                            Chand  Rat  is   celebrated  with   great   sensation  and  enthusiasm.[ Google image]


On   such   special   day   this   thought   still   makes   me   happy   and   excited   that   there   are   so   many   people   out   there    celebrating   this   day  and   wearing   new   clothes   of   bright   colors  eating   various   favorite   dishes  and   visiting    relatives   and  other   picnic   spots.


             No  hard   feelings  anymore ,lets  embrace  and  celebrate  love  together  [image google ]

It   is   tradition   that   on   Eid   everybody  resolve   their   issues  and   forget   all   annoying   and   complaints   just   meet   and   greet   each   other   with   love   and   dignity   for    new   beginning   of   relationships. Children   and   youngsters   take   Eidi [ special  pocket money] and  enjoy  fav   foods   and   rides   together .

                         Delightful  Eid   Gatherings  are  very   important  here   [ image google]                           

Though   after   the   death   of   my   parents   Eid   is   never   same   again  but   i   love   my   kids   and   hubby   so   much   i   wear   new   dress  ,cook  dishes  and  try   my   best   to   make   this  day  memorable   for   them .When   they    leave   for   Eid   prayer   i   recite   some   holy   verses   and   pray   for   my   late   parent ,my   tears   give  them   tribute   of   my   deep   love   for   them  but   before   hubby   and   kids   get   back   i   be   normal    and    well   come   them   with   cheering   smiles .

   My   heart  strongly ,deeply  wants peace  and  love  for   this  earth ,humanity  and  for  the whole  universe !


I    feel    sorry   for   those   who   suffer   any   kind   of   sadness    or    mishap   on    this   beautiful   day   and   cannot   enjoy   the   true   spirit   of   it ,I   pray   for   them   that  May   Lord   take   away    their   sorrows   and    bless   them   with   joy    and   peace.  We   have   custom   to   giveaway    some   appropriate   amount    of   money   to    needy   people   to   celebrate    Eid    with  self respect    and   grace  . This   gives   me   peace   of   mind   satisfaction.  

 My  son   will   reach   today  inshaallah [with God's will]  and  we  will be  hopefully  having  great  time  together tomorrow  on  Eid day.  

I  will  give  last part  of  my  previous  post next week  hopefully ,see   you  all  soon.
Please  take   great  care ,love  yourself ,love life ,never give up ,if still no  victory it means there is more effort to  apply so  stay happy ,content,strong and positive to turn all in your favor.

God   Bless  You  All!!!my  dear dear fellows .Happy  Eid to  all of  you who  know abpout it  : )

Karachi ,The City Of Flats





     Hello   My  Precious   Fellows!


   Hope   and   Pray  that   all   of   you  are   doing   great  and   enjoying   each   bit   of   your   beautiful   life   with   positive   attitude  and   pleasant   smile .  Hope   weather   at   your   side  of   the   world   is   friendly   and   cooperative   enough   to   do   all   your   works   and   hobbies .

We    reached   back   to  our   home   yesterday  morning .Weather   was   hot   and  dry     as   we   left   19   day    ago   ,though   due   to   being   slightly    cloudy   and   airy   temperature   was   46 c instead   of   52 c [19 days ago]

House   looked   miserable    due   to  dust    and   dry   leaves  ,so     hubby   and   me   put   our   luggage   aside   ,   took   the   water   pipe   and   wiper   and   washed   whole  house   including  all  three  rooms.  It   was    exhausting  though ,  but   we   felt   better   when   had   evening   tea   in  cleaned   environment  later .

Today   we   did   laundry,  mostly   did   hubby  i   only   hang   out   the   clothes  or   removed   or    put   back   the   curtains.  Feeling   happy   that   most   part   of    cleaning   is   done .  Only   kitchen   cupboards   remained   to   be   emptied   and   cleaned  as   i  do   whole   cleaning    resolution   before   every   Eid  [our   yearly   festival   followed   by   month  of  Ramadan  the  fasting month ,  Eid  is  only  few  days  away now].


I   also    have   to   supervise    my   both   kids   in   their   vacation   work  as   they   spent   most   of   June   in   games   and   fun   visits   to   their   favorite   place  ,now   time   to   pay   attention   to  their   studies   again .    


     View   of   city   from   17th   floor   of    building    where  is   the    office   of   my   son 


We   lived   in   Karachi   for   19  days   and   i   found   weather   really   beautiful . Due   to   being   close   to   Arabian   sea    Karachi    has   mild   summer   and   mild   winters.  Unlike   Khairpur [ our city] temperature   was   only   30  plus   ,mostly   cloudy   with   chilled    breeze .


My  son   lives   in   the   top   floor  of   five   story    building   so   each   outing   caused   us   quite     an   exercise   everyday.  I   found   it   nice   workout  after   two   earlier   days  . While    visiting   this   Largest   city   of   my   country   i   observed   that    there   99%   people   live   in    vertical   order  unlike   other   cites  .  I   belonged    to   a   village    where   people   live   in   huge   houses  with   lush   and   serene   surroundings   and   feel    free    to   view   nature   from    far  and    breath   under   open   blue   sky .

In    Karachi   i    saw    people    who   born   in    such   congested    flats ,spent   their   whole   lives  in   such   narrowness   among   many   other   members   of   family   .They   find    living   in   big   houses  as   luxury   which   remains  an   unfulfilled   desire   for   them.

I   realized  that    a  place   where   people   live   affects   people 's   nature   to   a   great   extent . People    who   grow   among    stern   weather   and   hard   surrounding   such   as   mountains     have   different   characteristics    than   people   who   live   in   smooth   valleys   beside   water.  People   grown   in   rude   unkind    desert   are   surly    part    than   who   live   in   flourishing    cities    with    completely   different    environments   like   banglows   or    such   small   flats .


There   were    four    flats   on  top   including   one   that   occupied   my   son .All   families    living   in  the  building   belonged    to   a   certain    community ,only   my    son   was    outsider   and   lived   alone   or   sometime   his   friends   come    to   live   with   him   for   weekends. My   son's   class   fellow   who   belongs   to   the   same    community    helped   my   son   to   get    this   flat    on   rent   as   this   area   was   better   though   little   more    expensive  .


 I    think   this   is   enough    for   today ,as   i    am    feeling    little    tired   right   now  ,in   next   post   i   will   share    with    you   little   more   about   my    stay  in   Karachi ,till   then   saying   you   goodbye    with   lots    and   lots    of    best    wishes    for    you   guys  .

please   take   great    care   stay    happy   and   positive  as    life    is   so    short  ,so   unpredictable  yet  gift    from   someone    who   loves   you   even    more    than    you.God   Bless   You   All!!!

Visit To My Son

          


 Hello  precious  Fellows!

 Hope   and   pray   that   all    of    you    are    having   beautiful   time   with   your    families .

I   missed    all    of    you   so   much   as    on   the   insistence  of   my   eldest   son   we   had   to   come    to    Karachi    where    summers    are    less    crucial    due   it's   nearness    to    the   Arabian sea    i   think  .After    my    surgery   my   son   was   very    concerned     about    my    healing   process   which   could   be   affect    negatively   by   extreme    heat   in  city   where   i   live   [Khairpur ] ,So   he   insisted   and    invited   us   to   spend   few   weeks   with   him  until   i   cross   initial   stage  of   healing   atleast..

On   2nd   June   we   arrived   in   Karachi    and   i    was   quite   pampered   by   my   son   and   whole   family  which   made   me   cry   sometime [yes,  tears  of  gratitude ofcourse].

This   weekend   we   visited   to   the   sea  and   spent   almost   three   amazing   hours   at   the   beach ,glorious  experience indeed :)

I   am   sharing   few   photos   of   this   beautiful   day  below  hope   you   will   like   them .



  It  was  5 pm when we reached at beach ,wind was  humid but pleasant ,people were enjoying playing with waves and camel or small four wheel  rides that help people to reach out of sandy area of the beach .my  first  photo was this one .



  We  spent  almost hour among waves , but i felt need  to sit somewhere then and my  son asked us to walk towards dating point .



                                        Heading   to   the  dating point before  us.   Lots   of  people  were enjoying view from above but we preferred  sitting on  rocks  and next  hours proved that it was  great decision as we had great time and observed waves closely which were growing stronger  as sun was setting . 



 I   felt  tired  and  wanted to sit  ,this weakness is irritating believe me for workaholic person like me.



                                            View   of   beach  from  dating  point  



  Sitting   finally  and  felt  relaxed ,spent  tow  beautiful   hours  here ,talked ,sang ,laughed and my  younger  son  tried hard to teach  my eldest son how to whistle but he  could learn only  a  little  lol. 





  Took  this  pic  before  leaving  at  7 45 pm evening , we stood  still ,heard  the  whispers  of  waves and  felt   the   restlessness  of   sea .we  said  goodbye  with  our  last  look  at  it  and  left .

Hope   to   see   you   very   soon   my   friends  ,next   week   hopefully   we   will   be   leaving   for   our   city   back   ,I   visit   your   lovely   places  whenever   find   time  ,today   managing   to  give  a  quick  post .

Take   great   care   dear   fellows ,stay   positive ,happy  and   strong to  turn  everything  better   for   you   and   your   surroundings! God   Bless  You  All!!!
