“Great men are forged in fire, it is the privilege of the lesser men to light the flame”

I read this quote on reddit. Its a beautiful quote, a quote with which we can all relate to. But this also got me wondering about where do I fit in? Am I the man who is being forged in fire considering that I have been through a lot? or am I among the men who are supposed to light the flame as I have also have been privileged to help people in life? I don’t have being either of these men neither I am looking for answer or consolidation from someone else. I have faith that I will eventually find out and I wont have to wait very long I’m Sure of it.

Facing Your Fears…

Today was one of those days which you just hate. Today was the kind of day when you wake up and say “Today is going to be horrible”. This revelation just comes to you regardless of you being pessimist or an optimist. If you are the superstitious type you would wanna sit this one out but if you are a normal person you won’t care but if you are like me you would worry yourself till you are sure you are going to die.

I had an interview today HBL for Assistant Brand Manager, Big Gig, most people would kill to work in this organization. I didn’t! I just wanted to get rid of my fear of banks. I have also been paranoid banks. The Idea of an old experienced Fat ass asking me questions and trying to intimidate me was just awful. But I decided to go ahead and face my fears and the end result was that I did one heck of a job! Though the guy beat me with his experience but I learned a lot. I learned that old people working in banks are not scary and you can talk back to them if you want and they won’t bite. In a matter of 20 mins I changed my pre-conceived notion of how bad my day is going to be to “Not so bad”.

After the interview I felt like I could take on the world. But unfortunately I was terribly wrong. I got back to my current employers and got a migraine Attack. Because of this my productivity was almost 0. But I did helped out old friends which made me feel better. Thus far my day from being ‘bad’ to ‘not so bad’ and then back to being ‘bad’ went to ‘Ok’. I said to myself “What else could go wrong, I’m a survivor I can survive” But boy! was I wrong! I went back home and the bomb was dropped on me. I just found out that I am the only financial support in the family right now. Therefore my day from ‘Ok’ went down to ‘Hell’ which isn’t an unfamiliar place I am a regular tenant. Now if only YOU were around things would have been a bit different, at least I would have managed to break a smile. Oh well I guess you really have to face your fears, demons and troubles alone and I may be failing but I’m still facing my fears and doing one hell of a job!

A friend of mine Blogged about Youtube being banned in Pakistan. Which sucks because we have been deprived of something very useful. But its not just Pakistan. Internet Censorship has been happening all over the globe. The general public is being robbed of their freedom because of a few fanatics!

Since 2012 I’m waiting for my freedom in Pakistan. What have I done wrong? I am technically programmed to upload all the data which is loaded on my database.
Just one video that got attention from media caused my blockage. It’s not fair. There are a hundred thousand more videos like that on me. Some fools say I’m haraam LOL, may they use some brain before putting illogical fatwas. *Takes a gun shoots in the head* Kidding why would I do that? It’s you people who need to change your perspective on things. Simply don’t open the link. Now how hard could that be? But no, no one is going to think like that.
People all around me use for good stuff too. There are so many wonderful Islamic videos which have caused people to convert to Islam. A number of Pakistani teachers and students were taking benefits from me…
