they said it…

Well this here website claims to have analyzed a writing specimen and have thus concluded that I write like David Foster Wallace. Wait, I meant DAVID FOSTER WALLACE! Here is the proof.

Hmm, if only that:

a) is an underlying, seemingly self-evident truth that makes its debut very very soon

or

b) gives me the motivation (a.k.a. kick in the bottom) to make such an analysis  an undeniable truth.

Either of the two options works for me. Really.

‘liberate the old’

July 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

Your starcast for the week : GEMINI (May 22 – Jun. 21)

If you are feeling uncomfortable, then you are right where you need to be. The restlessness and anxious stream of energy is letting you know that your life is changing and the way things have been are just not going to be allowed to be sustained, end of story. There is great anticipation in the sky as well – the anticipation of a better day, of a new way to live and interrelate and of a new way to love and create. Your ruler Mercury is in Leo and it is making some great angles of stress to radical Uranus and powerful Pluto. You are undergoing your own personal transformation and the sky is doing what it can to liberate the old right out of the stride of your Soul. Take a few humble steps into the unknown this week and your heart will leap right out of your chest and thank you.

notes that drifted my way…

June 24, 2010 § 1 Comment

-while driving on a rather uninspiring side street, when Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice  was to be heard, wafting out of a barely lit construction site, equally pleasant,powerful, masterful so that it overtook any immediate concern,converting a rather flat road into smooth ascent up the musical scale.

-while crossing an uncharacteristically quiet Firdous Market, we were on our way to Iftaar…orange-black road, ‘sunn-saann’, not a pedestrian in sight,  flipped on the radio…NFK’s rendition of ‘Chapp Tilak,Morey Naina Milaike’…bliss

-PTV World, Ghulam Ali, ‘Chupp Chupp ke’, the smiley saas-master, candles dancing…

-Tina Sani’s ‘Thora Saath Chahiye’, Ary TV serial song, earthy magnificence,her renditions of  Faiz/Faraz are quite worth a listen…

The sky has been darkening all morning, and I have a strong reason to believe it shall rain today in Lahore.

Now that is the kind of change I would welcome with open arms!

Call me Mars-Orwell

Just kidding, still Mars.  I just took this ‘ Which Crazy Writer are you?’ quiz that has been floating around in Twitter-istan and apparently, I’m George Orwell.  Nice!

George Orwell

Some call you a martyr; you just like to think of yourself as selfless. Coming from a comfortable, upper-middle-class family, you would choose to live in poverty for years just to see how the other half lives. You don’t always make the best choices – moving to a cold, rainy Scottish Isle, hundreds of miles away from a real hospital, when you’re dying of tuberculosis? Even though you adore Socialist ideals, you doubt that any country can bring it into being without turning to tyrrany. As a matter of fact, you happen to think that power corrupts everyone it touches… but you shouldn’t say too much, in case They’re watching. After all, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they’re not after you.

Cricket in Pakistan

i think this passion towards cricket is displaced. the sport became an enterprise, a corrupt one, a long time ago. #pakistan #cricket
