Why close our eyes?

Apart from the concerts, Hotels, eat-outs, clubs and all the fun in our lives, this is what the other side of Karachi is.
Let’s help make this city a better place to live by not closing our eyes towards them.

    Indefinite quest exceeds the limitations of this limited wordly life.

    In any form, life in itself is the most valuable gift of Almighty. Thank you Unaiza for such a good contribution this friday.

    Definitely we should realise how blessed we are, as opposed to millions :|

    MONA’s point is the crux of the matter. But i am sorry that i had to edit the line the other side of Karachi is to ” the real side of Karachi” . Excellent post Unaiza

    Thanks, Mansoor.
    What I wanted from this post was to make people realise what we owe to this society, this city or rather this city.
    There are thousands who do not eat before going to sleep, hundreds who die due to unaffordable treatments and so many who are trodden.
    What we should do is save a 10Rs. note on daily basis and when find someone who deserves, empty that account.
    It gives hell lot of satisfaction to the heart.

    No, I’m ashamed I could not.
    I don’t know why this thought did not come to me.
    I will visit that place again.

    What an amazing balance of Allah. I know of familes willing to spend $$ to have just one child and here you see who are blessed are so care free.


  13. Dee (unregistered) on November 3rd, 2006 @ 9:59 pm

    @Unaiza….> I didnt mean to embarrass you.But saftey of the child was the first thought crossed my mind when i looked at the the pic.Anyway good thoughts and wonderful pic.
    @SS…..>Yes its always wonderful to see the carefree nature of childhood.
    Dee.

    @ DEE: Oh no, Im not embarassed, just that how carried away I got to write about it and ignored the importance of the act that should have been taken.
    Thanks for making me realise that.


  15. SS (unregistered) on November 3rd, 2006 @ 10:08 pm

    Dee. Care free parents, who don’t seem to be concerned if they loose one


  16. Dee (unregistered) on November 4th, 2006 @ 12:25 am

    @SS, I dont agree with your comment.I wouldnt pass the judgement so easily to parents as i dont know what their situation(finacial and physical or who knows if they have a parent) is so i will give parents the benefit of doubt.But there is no question in my mind that every kid deserve parent’s love and attention.

    What ever the situation is, do you allow your loved one play like this (care free)in front of Death Train??


  18. Naeem (unregistered) on November 4th, 2006 @ 2:33 am

    my question to the one who took the picture…was taking the picture more important than quickly getting the kid out of the way? :)


  19. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on November 4th, 2006 @ 5:47 am

    Unaiza you didnt realize coz you were more intrested to take pics than getting kid out of the way so that you could upload on KMB and show off. In a single word term, its called “Riakari”. If you would have thought about God rather than about the site then it could be better for you. Naiki is never shown off, thats the simple thing.

    I know my words would piss you off but I do know you and consider a friend so i said all these things. I can guess what would be coming from your site or some of your *chamcha* wil stand up to say something in favor of you to earn your favor but wise people will realize that I am not harming you and foolish people would curse me for sure. Sorry and have a nice day.

    Since only ALLAH knows the whole truth, without knowing if a KMB post was in her mind or the kid’s life I won’t say much about her “niyyaat” but yes Adnan is quite right. Your first priority should have been to forget anything but to get to the kid and guide him to a side so he would be safe. You could take few pics then and make a post.

    Apart from that aspect this is for sure excellent post. Do keep the underprivileged in your heart & mind the next time you use a privilege, i guess that was the message that the author wanted to deliver.


  22. unaiza nasim (unregistered) on November 4th, 2006 @ 11:23 am

    @ Adnan Siddiqi: I agree, but then I was in car and the barrier was there.Not justifying, I know I should have come out of teh car and tell teh kid to stay away. Secondly, the kid seems too near in the picture. I don’t think it was that close to the track, else definitely would have attracted.
    And please don’t say anything to my “chamchas” :-D I expected you to be one too;)


  23. unaiza nasim (unregistered) on November 4th, 2006 @ 11:24 am

    Again, Did my post made some one (not think, but) take an action for the poor and the needy??


  24. Adnan Siddiqi (unregistered) on November 4th, 2006 @ 12:41 pm


    my “chamchas” :-D I expected you to be one too;)

    Lahol walaquat Illah billah. Stop dreaming:d
