Dil Pardesi Ho Gaya

Words fail me for this post..
If those PIA Guards deserved a salute, then Nida Pasha deserves an standing ovation.

Its a lesson for all of us who never stop ranting, whining & complaining about our almost perfect lives. Its a lesson for those who critize & complain but are too lazy to genuinely do something about the problems that we face.

Nida Pasha, You Are One Brave Girl. Hats off to you!!
And May Allah accept all your prayers of being able to send your mother for Hajj.

Note: Thanks to nofiln for uploading a very interesting Urdu series by BBC about some very inspiring Pakistani People – the true heroes of today. One of the other stories will soon be blogged at Pakistaniat

    Sufi, can you please include a brief synopsis of the video clip as myself and I am definitely sure, there will others as well, who are unable to watch YouTube’s video feeds due to slower or run-down PCs.

    Hence, from now one, if everyone can include a brief summary of a YouTube related news-post will be hugely appreciated…at least by myself……thanks.

    besides slow PCs YouTube Videos require high speed Internet Connetion which is a dream in Pakistan.

    best way to view videos on youtube is downloading them goto http://www.videodownloader.net

    i dont get it, is she a transexual? the video only played for 1.50 mins.

    http://keepvid.com/ is another site to download videos for offline viewing. It supports all video services.

    the site mentioned by newbie also has a firefox extension which is a cool plugin and I use it at home.

    you also need to have a FLV player to run downloaded files.

    @ZAHARA no she is not transexual.. Becasue of our stupid society, this girl has to present herself like a boy infront of others, so she can earn bread and butter for her family.

    I aggree with Arsalan,

    Because i almost neglected this post because there was no caption or a brief synopsis. Just wondered from where PIA Guards came in between and left this page.

  10. Sufi (unregistered) on December 23rd, 2006 @ 11:04 am

    I wanted you all to have the same effect as it had on me and hence did not add a description of the video.

    Arsalan, I think your problem is more of a slow internet connection than a slow pc.

    Abdul Sami, most youtube videos require a medium speed internet, because the resolution, sound quality aren’t the best.. but unfortunately that too is not widely available in Pakistan.

    Sajid, if you have been a frequent visitor to KMB you would realize that all the text in blue are ‘active hyperlinks’ so if you click them, you will be transported to another page. In this case, clicking on PIA Guards would take you to a post about them.

    Zahra, try force refreshing it.

  12. Sajid (unregistered) on December 23rd, 2006 @ 11:29 am

    Sufi, Why focus on active reader? Why not those who read this for the first time?

    To me, this is more about explaining it properly, either first timer read it, or a regular!

    As for the hyperlink, i know that but when you read that first line, it doesn’t convey any idea what this post is all about.

  13. Sajid (unregistered) on December 23rd, 2006 @ 11:32 am

    Though , nice video and coverage of a sensitive topic which most people ignore.

  14. Sufi (unregistered) on December 23rd, 2006 @ 12:32 pm

    Sajid, I did not mention anything about focusing active readers?

    “@ZAHARA no she is not transexual.. Becasue of our stupid society, this girl has to present herself like a boy infront of others, so she can earn bread and butter for her family.”

    It looked transexual to me as well. Cant she earn by living in her self originally? Has our society reached to such an extent? I think NO

  17. ash (unregistered) on December 23rd, 2006 @ 2:09 pm

    oh please. firstly you mean transvestite not transsexual and secondly NO she couldnt find a job or public transport which is why she has to ride a bike (impossible feat for a feminine woman)and dress like a boy.

  18. Sufi (unregistered) on December 23rd, 2006 @ 2:29 pm

    Shahzad, I am not sure if you have been to Multan or other even smaller places and I think you are not familiar with the mentality of the majority of the people there. I being a guy was ashamed at the way they stared me. Nida to phir bhi ladki hai. And a lot of people here do not think of working women as “shareef”.

  19. Shahzad (unregistered) on December 24th, 2006 @ 11:47 am

    Sufi! After reading ur message , i must say
    There is no Alternative to Literacy and Islam .
    We cant afford to lack in any of them.
