SZABIST and Indus School of Art & Architecture – Keeping the spirit alive

While the world is not willing to trust our government, the private sector, NGO, Social Org, Student Org, media and all others are still playing a crucial role in putting an effort to lessen the miseries of the flood victims, estimated to be around 15+ million all over Pakistan. [ How & Where i can help ?  Click here ]

Every day I receive many email/SMS notifications/requests on flood relief work. Dawn captured these moments from a similar initiative taken by the students of SZABIST and Indus School of Arts & Architecture Karachi to raise money for flood victims. The student witnessed some inspiring moments. “One guy just dropped Rs. 10,000 – just like that” said one student.What’s more interesting is that the people in the more affluent cars are not stopping yet continuously rickshaw drivers gave as much as 10 or 20 rupeessaid another student.

    I was surprised by the lack of posts regarding flood relief. Now, after reading the comments above and on other posts, the general hatred shown to fellow Pakistanis, I am merely saddened – no longer surprised.
    A people’s character shows in how they treat the poor – and based on reading the blogs and comments here,Pakistan shows no character whatsoever.

    Dil bhar sa gaya hai aap ki aap-beeti sun kar. Aap sang-dil k jigar per kitni ‘chootein’ lagi hain? Aur aap ab bhi apna shokh mizaaj liyey comments likhney se guraiz nahi kartay. Daad deni paday gi aap kay iss jiya`lay qirdaar ki jisse ‘chootein hi chootein’ lagney k baawajood koi tassalli nahi kerta. Itni ‘chootein’ lagney k baad aap ka rawai`ya nahi badla, jaanay aur kitni ‘chooton’ ka khasara hoga.


    You made me ponder on a term, ‘Chootiya’
    Now according to you, it should be someone who is HURT, I on the other hand cant stop laughing my ass off!!

  16. بستنی (wasiq) on August 18th, 2010 @ 2:38 am

    @prait-atma saab…..sir with all due respect this playing devil has definitely made me wonder how and with whom do you intend to play GOD…I hope its not Balma jee….lol

    What I meant and was not able to explain due to cable net fault for which I apologies from my behalf,and not from the behalf of worldcall and all the agencies under mr rehman malik….
    Every Ramadan people of pakistan , and especially karachi…not directly affected by the disaster somewhere in the far flung area of the country are forced to believe that they can help their fellow country folk….and people instead of praying and asking GOD for help….say O’GOD and start saving people and helping people they don’t even know…and this has been going on for the past couple of years….pak Army,navy ,Air force is mobilized and even the US forces in Afghanistan most graciously come to the rescue….nobody could suspects fowl play because the disaster is so natural….but the question remains Why the poor people of pakistan are constantly in need of a rescue operation for more than half a century….?
    when I was in sixth grade in school I read in my geography book that Pakistan is an agricultural country it has the BEST irrigation system with rivers and canals… it seems that there exist no irrigation and storage system at all…..every year the united nation help pakistan survive the floods….if they were any serious and concentrated on even one headwork a year…..imagine how many headworks have been made flood free….believe you me this is not ever going to change….next year Inshallah there will be worse floods than this year because of the damage caused this year is going to multiply as well as the population….next year you will see more new born babies crying for food and milk….so I request to the people of Karachi and the readers of KMB …let us completely forget about the floods and pray to God for forgiveness and blessing….because taking away the laptops and books from the hands of our kids and giving them the begging bowl….will not solve the problem….collecting a few hundred thousand tons of wheat and rice and sending it up north is like throwing it in the ocean….the people we are supposed to be helping are those who grow or should grow millions of tons of wheat and rice…..and look at them now….don’t you guys see something very wrong in this picture….????
    now back to the worsening situation in karachi….last year we were all praise for the nazim and city government for the unbelievable construction of fly-overs and roads…saving us from the traffic jams…this year after a little drizzle….the jams re-appeared….WOW ! next year I am predicting the worst jam of karachi….unless the number of new vehicles coming on the roads every day is checked….which I am sure will not be….so

  17. Prait-atma (unregistered) on August 18th, 2010 @ 5:19 am

    @ wasiq.

    wow…me tu akela hi chala tha….abadi barthi gai rush lagta giya.

    guess we have a tag team agsint flood mufta khoors now…:D:D

    thats exactly my point of view.

    mufta khoors ratio in our contury is increasing by the day…..and these poeple trying to play god think they are doing some great dead..while i say they all donation makers will go to hell, coz they are not lettign these ever earn a respectable income by ADDICTING them to free moaching.

    life is for those who earn it by there hard work…so please let them enjoy the benefits of those hard work by eating out ina 1200+ buffets if they like..adn dont try to make em guility conscious…..and lets make your priorites claer.

    we as a hyer emoptional and dillisuional nation try to be SUPER DIYALOO in ramadan by stuffing up poor upto the ass….while leaving those mufta khoors high and dry the rest of 11 months…..baki mahinay kiy awoh kaam ker ke khaian gay…? muftay tu muftay hotay hainna

    so i make aconciosu effort not to spend a single penny in donation zakkat etc etc….call me a devil….but thats the way i am….coz there are so many chotiyas stuffing every beggig bwol….so i dont boter.

    afte rend of ramadan….i bring out my purse….and spend my zakkat , donations etc etc…which alhamdulilah…jitna allah ne bakhsa hai us ke bando ki help kernay ki choti si koshis kerta hooon……but not in ramadan.

    call me a sanki..but i think suffocating donations and witing for ramadan to realse all those funds..takay ” sattar guna sawab “milay…it makes us the worst greedy people in front of allah……i try to do the invers…i spend in the rest of 11 months..adn not in ramadan.

    allah meray gunahon ko maaf farmaiyee…but thats hte way i think and do.

    call me a devil….maybe i am….but its a devil who is at peace with himself….no matter what i do.

    so if you see me hogging on a buffet…never think i wud have any slight remorse or anything…..:D:D

    apna tu mechansim hi ulta hai boss

  18. بستنی (wasiq) on August 18th, 2010 @ 2:09 pm

    @prait-atma saab….sir that is a very good thinking….to save your hard earned zakat in this month….my Papa (god bless his soul) used to save a portion of zakat for the rest of the year….usually what happens is that if you give a smaller denomination note to a begger in this month of ramadan…they throw it back at you….yeah kya…hum ko zakat doo…and the same person…gladly takes whatever you give and also appear thankful….over saturation and high expectation is the holy month of Ramadan ….and the money you give the poor this month is usually not utilized because they are often getting free food and clothes as well….so they usually waste it on drugs and other wasteful things….and have nothing left for the food in the later months when the hands of the rich donors are tied as well….so I must say bravo sir…you are turning out to be a very charitable person….I like it…!

    Now about the floods tag team…..I for one firmly believe that here in Pakistan….Flood is not a natural disaster…..we have the best barrages and dams ,headworks, canals, tributaries…..and a whole army of people to run and maintain them all year round….plus the water level is also monitored by the neighboring countries like china,India and Afghanistan….and also by the UN.
    A flood of this magnitude can only be attributed to the mismanagement,indecision and criminal negligence in checking the flow ….somebody definitely is responsible and needs to be brought to justice so that this thing never ever happens again….and that same person or agency should pay for the damages and rescue….its not an issue to turn the whole nation and specially the innocent kids and students in beggers or cheats….and give the opportunity to the enemies of pakistan to ridicule even more ….
    since we are studying the cause of this devastating floods don’t you feel a little suspisious about the fact that in the last qurashi-krishna meeting on Water issues…there was some dispute….and then this happened….the worst in history….my guess is that either one wanted this to happen anyway….which one…?????

  19. Prait-atma (unregistered) on August 18th, 2010 @ 2:38 pm

    @ wasiq

    sir thanks for appriciating my way of thinking…..but whenever somebody appricates me, my atma feels uneasy for a lot of days.

    jisay jo bacteria sulpher oxide pe jeeta hu usay pure oxygen envirnoent me choor diya jai…lol

    and yes i second your throey…it was a engligence of hte bigget magnitude….but with all hige negligences this wud never comne on front.

    how many of the losses in all our wars due to tactical or stretegic deccison made were put to justice.

    why in last weeks before wars anti perosnal mines were removed, why important personel were transfered on cruicla junctures….we will never know.

    as for the beggars…its gald they get an early triangin in there life for what we all do for the rest of our lifes being pakistanis…

    sali bihikari qoum yehi kuch karay gi…lol

    see…this is the epitome of chutiyapanaisation of this phaticher qoum.

    “buger people collection funds from phaticher’s hard earned halal income, to rebuild phatichers form village’s illegae houses that were constructed on illegally occupied govt land, with kundas form KESC never paid bills for which we all suffered brown outs and black outs.

    i say it was god;s silencer wali beawaz pari…..per zaroor pari.

    but this chutipanasied qoum is spending mor eof there hard earned money on that shit hole..nto real.ised that govt is further imposing FST and flood tax to further sqeezed ther halal income for that haram good deed work of commison laced construction spree on illgal lands again.

    gosgh…am i the only non chutiya left in this contry…arghhhhh

    We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine and a whole multicolored collection of uppers, downers, laughers, screamers . . . Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge and I knew we’d get into that rotten stuff pretty soon . . .

    hmmm..after trying all n bored n feeling wasted..why not go for stuff that the bormal down trodden use….kuppi n garday say start karoo..u will enjoy the raw unrefined shade of life…a buddy advised me , not to be myself for a while…coz its not the world i hate, may be its me myself that is becomign unebarable to myself….so why not change ourselfs to give world a sporting chance to amuse us.
