Students organizing charity show

The students of Greenwich University are organizing a show featuring Begum Nawazish Ali (we all know who she is by now). All the preceedings from the show would be donated to Dar-ul-Sukoon. The show is scheduled for November 25 at the university’s main campus.

They are also looking for sponsors and general donations to help them organize the show. Contact Zain if you want to contribute (or attend).

    A cross dresser or Eunuch?

    Sami that eunush is better than THE ARMY generals dear. At least he is not making people suffer this much. He is trying to entertain for a cause (though we may have personal opinion about him, otherwise).

    He is not taking anything from us. All he is trying to give us something, whether we like his way or not. But instead of these charity shows we need more of organizations taking care of destitute than few people attempting to work at their own to get some money for the needy. And govt, he has already distanced itself from any help to the poor. the philanthropist at the only option.

    MB, there are hundreds of NGOs working in Pakistan who are doing much more to help the less privileged. This is our class project and we are making a point to donate the net savings to Darul Sukoon. Please assist if you can.

    Secondly, please guys do not post comments on Begum Nawazish (Ali Saleem). This is not a post to discuss him. All we are asking from KMB readers to help. We have got some good sponsors but still we are running short of some 50K.

    Thanks to those who have contacted me and confirmed the donations. Much appreciated.

    Take care

    I have lived in Malaysia for a long time. Its a beautiful country and a great place to live. But when I first moved there, among the things that I noticed was the number of openly gay men – from seemingly innocuous “softies” to cross-dressing gay prostitutes and drag queens.

    After a while I began to see why homosexuality was so rampant. Social acceptance is always the first thing before a taboo practice becomes mainstream. And in Malaysia homosexuality has become socially accepted. It is common to see gay men hanging out with their girlfriends, pretending to be “just another girl”.

    Its the same with the legalization of marijuana, same-sex marriage, prostitution, etc. These once taboo practices became socially acceptable and are now legal in many Western countries, including Canada.

    Having been out of Karachi for more than 15 years, I was shocked and saddened to see this man who calls himself “Begum Nawazish Ali” with his own tv show. From what I know, it’s quite a popular program. And it is so mainstream and socially acceptable that political figures regularly feature as guests (I saw Shaikh Rasheed and Makhdoom Ameen Fahim on Youtube).

    I know homosexuality has always existed in Pakistan. But to bring it out in the open where it is no longer taboo can only mean disaster. Whether you admit it or not, social conformance is an important and legitimate motivating factor for those who are trying to lead a responsible life as Muslims and Pakistanis.

    Unless we are prepared to accept homosexuality as a social norm in the not-very-distant future, we must consider it taboo, and we must maintain the stigma that is attached to homosexual behaviour.

    Fading everything to black and blue
    You look a lot like you
    Shatter in the blink of an eye
    You keep sailing right on through
    Every time you say you’re learning
    You just look a lot like me
    Pale under the blistering sky
    White and red
    Black and blue
    You’ve been waiting a long time
    You’ve been waiting a long time
    To fall down on your knees
    Cut your hands
    Cut yourself until you bleed
    Fall asleep next to me
    Wait for everyone to go away
    And in a dimly lit
    room where you’ve got nothing to hide
    Say your goodbyes
    Tell yourself we’ll read
    a note that says
    I’m sorry everyone
    I’m tired of feeling nothing goodbye
    Wash your face
    Dry your eyes
    Cause you’ve been waiting a long time
    You’ve been waiting a long long time
    To fall down on your knees
    Cut your hands
    Cut yourself until you bleed
    But fall asleep next to me
    Have a dream I’m falling down
    On my face
    Scrape my knees
    Scrape my hands until they bleed
    Cause you’re fast asleep next to me
    Next to me

    wasiq bro, abhi time nahi hai. i am extremely occupied with this charity stuff. get back to you later. you should have contributed though. if interested call me at 0333-2405770.

    @ZAIN….MY man you gave your private cell # on a public domain….you must be desperate….by now you must have received a million calls from prank callers pretending to be me…..!lol.

    @unaiza nasim(oh Really???)…..see there are so many guys all around you doing mustn’t give up hope.
    One sunny afternoon,i had the opportunity of visiting this place on kashmir road with a friend for obvious reasons,if i remember correctly it was a little earlier than the era you have mentioned….never the less the two groups were locked horns over the donated animal hides all over the karachi….snatching and burning the roadside camps… was hopeless but the few minutes i spend with these special people and the angels who take care of them made a great impact on my life…first of all i decided never to be a part of that insanity and secondly,i madeup my mind that even if i can not find a solution to the problems of the city i will atleast try to understand the problems…..
