Book Review: The trouble with Islam today, a wakeup call for honesty and change

An excruciatingly bad read if you are a practicing Muslim in the third world but a politically correct view if you are ‘secular’ westernized born-again wanna-be north American! Correction – Canadian! By Fareeha Qayoom

August 14th, 2010 – Independence Day

Pakistan will rise again like a phoenix from the ashes because Pakistani citizens have one trait in common – resilience, endurance and the spirit of carrying on no matter what life throws at them, as Shahzad Roy put it in his song, “Laga Reh,” (“Tu hai aik Aam admi or bus,” translation: “You are just a common man, and that's it” – the common man replies, “to Kia karoon, himat har doon?” “So what else should I do? Should I just give up?” Roy replies, “naheen, Laga Reh!” no, carry on!) - The only way is up when you are all the way down. I have faith we will get through this. By Fareeha Qayoom

Technology: Why is blogging so popular anyway?

I like blogging. Not because I am tech savvy. Far from it, I don’t know beans about technology. I am the most tech challenged person around. I don’t even know how to tweet for God’s sakes, my fake made in China iPhone has more gadgets than my watch and my watch is some kind of complicated digital space-age device of modern technology!

Time

Time is relative. Unfortunately, it waits for no man (and woman). It relentlessly marches on. Sometimes, it passes in a blur and sometimes, it slows down so much that each second is excruciating. By Fareeha Qayoom

Negotiating the Communication Minefield

Effective communication is an acquired skill – though, not all managers know how to communicate effectively. Words have meanings and associations – same words can mean different things to different people. Then, there are hidden meanings, fine nuances, body language, and outright contradictions between actions and words, not to mention, human nature…walking through this minefield can be tough – on top of that, you need emotional intelligence and people skills. I don’t think you can ever say you have mastered all the skills of communication and now you have become an effective communicator. You live and learn - it’s always a process. by Fareeha Qayoom
