Reading between the lines, Divided we fall

First things first, let me clarify my motivation – I have no axes to grind. No, I am not a ‘fundamental’ Muslim as extremists are characterized in popular press. No, I am not a ‘dooms day,’ prophet. No, I am not ‘psychotic.’ No, I am not a ‘mullah.’ No, I do not have any political aspirations nor do I want to lead a long march somewhere, no, sorry, no activism in my past either. No, my views don’t stem from discussions with any of my friends’ politics’ or religion. No, I am not easily influenced either because I like making up my own mind. No, I don’t have a closed mind By Fareeha Qayoom

Ramblings…a working plan for my leisure activities

I was reading about it the other day (Business, the Universe & Everything, Conversations with the world’s greatest management thinkers by Stuart Grainer and Des Dearlove)…the guy who invented mind maps basically had the same problem before he came up with a short hand to organize his thoughts…Tony Buzan’s output trebled and quadrupled after he came up this new system…He’s the “original renaissance man, responsible for over 80 books, a business empire and a legion of other activities.” Everything has been organized to the max, he manages his life and gets to do ton of stuff with his mind maps… By Fareeha Qayoom

Book review – Imran Khan’s Pakistan, a personal history

So what do I think about the book?! – I think, it’s a sales pitch – it screams at you, “Vote for me – I am the only ‘honest’ candidate around for the next prime minister of Pakistan and I am ready to do this job now!” By Fareeha Qayoom

Book Review: Bill Bryson’s ‘A short history of nearly everything’

Unfortunately people who usually write text books or fact books are no writers. I think they should just hire real writers like Bryson…if I had a book like ‘a short history of nearly everything’ at school. Things might have been indeed different. I mean, the book is readable, accessible, and full of fun facts, not to mention, interesting…furthermore, it’s an enjoyable read By Fareeha Qayoom
