Dog days and Lord of the Flies syndrome

Bottom line, absolute power corrupts absolutely and for some weird reason, most people in their puny capacity always but always cross the line if they can help it. Anyone who is in any position of power over others likes to exercise his muscles, even when there is no need. I see so many examples – big cars hog the roads…gate keepers try to teach you your place. Front Desk personnel try to block you to give you just three examples. Bully’s bully, its not personal – the powerful prey on the weak. It’s the survival of the fittest. The list goes on and on and on… By Fareeha Qayoom

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

Doom and Gloom Galore

Citizens should be allowed to let off steam in peaceful healthy ways. There is a lot of hidden anger that comes out when people are protesting on the roads, on television and in the news, but especially when they are protesting against power outages. By Fareeha Qayoom

Heat, flies, and load-shedding

There are hundreds of road blocks, obstacles, frustrations that dog our average day and yet we find the time to do all that we have to do during the course of our day and still get up the next morning full of hope and courage and go through the same grind again and again. That’s what makes Pakistan amazing. By Fareeha Qayoom
