Islam, the world, and Pakistan

December 15, 2016

Proud to be a Muslim – No apologies. No excuses.

The world is divided into two: us and them, the first world and the third world, the black and the white, the rich and the poor, the educated and the illiterate, the privileged and the disadvantaged, the favored and the damned, the aristocrats and the peasants, the natives and the immigrants, on and on it goes…like an infinite loop spiral.

Year in Review: 2016

December is the month we take stock and build on the successes and failures of the past. We also create new resolutions. Well, I don’t have any new resolutions. I have only old. By Fareeha Qayoom

The Perfect Sky is Torn!

I just finished editing content for our 1/2016 edition. While I was working on final copy, this song kept playing at the back of my mind like a sad refrain…I have yet to come up with the title of our cover story. However, I think this is our theme song for this edition. Its’ so sad. The perfect sky is torn…sigh. By Fareeha Qayoom

Stuck in the Twilight Zone!

And yes, I have now great respect for people in the government who manage to get anything done – push the paper all the way through to build roads, schools, hospitals - the works. It takes hundreds of engineers to change a single light bulb in this joint. People who can do all that are my heroes. I salute you. You must be relentless, tireless and have a lot of tolerance for putting up with loads of BS and still plowing through all that nonsense to come on the other side. By Fareeha Qayoom

Reality Check!

It’s August again. Pakistan will be celebrating its 62nd birthday this year. Looking back, I think 2009 has been the toughest year yet. No doubt, all businesses are virtually praying for this bad economic patch to be over…however, personally, I think it’s just the ‘perception’ thing...yes, our economic managers are not doing a good (management) job but that’s been true for the past 62 years so what’s changed? Our economy is always on the brink of bankruptcy when the old guard hands over the watch and is always climbing back up after the new guard is sworn in By Fareeha Qayoom
