2008 – Name Your Change Icons

The New Year is literally ‘new’ today. The tragic incidents of the past few days have taken out a lot of enthusiasm from the city on this eve but most of us still believe in a positive future and are ready to identify with the same.

So what are your change icons? Name the stuff or events you see as icons of a better future. Is it that Is it that white stop lane you and one of your friends have started observing religiously at the traffic signals? Is it that young man in your favorite political party you have started respecting not because of the party flag but the person himself? Is it that air-condition in your car you use 10 minutes less to save burning some of the fuel you can? Is it that clerk you made do the job by-the-book by your calm persistence over the vehicle tax counter? Is it that small receipt you demanded from the guard at the parking lot to make things go as they should be?

Remember – the icons are always small but when you double click on them, new ‘applications’ are launched. And yes, badly done stuff results in ‘fatal errors’ but let us keep that for a subsequent post.

    There are many little things I do in my daily life which may be helpful to the environment and our country, some of them are here with reasons;
    • I don’t smoke [Being Environment Friendly]
    • I don’t have tea on regular basis [Pakistan is the biggest importer of Tea]
    • I use to keep empty wrappers / disposable bottles / tins with me until I see some dustbin [Keep my country clean]
    • Dispose off organic waste from vegetables and fruits etc in garden [Natural Recycle]
    I am sure we can make a difference by doing little things :)

    S M Nabeel, for atleast s/he is leading by example!

    “Is it that young man in your favorite political party you have started respecting not because of the party flag but the person himself? ”

    Seriously??

    Do most people reading this blog actually know who ‘party workers’ are other than the figure-heads that are presented to us, who by the time they’ve sucked up into prominence are a part of the system and hence as corrupt as the rest?
