“You can find happiness in the darkest of times”
Happiness makes you feel that you are floating on a cloud in a clear sky. It helps you to abate your depression, anxiety, and sadness in life. Although without these dark times you won't be able to value happiness. So to some extent, these obnoxious moments are very important. There are many things which make you feel exhilarated and maintain peace and harmony in your life. But in reality, happiness comes from within your self. If you take an example of a poor man sitting on a footpath, wearing worn-out clothes, who eats dry stale pieces of bread. You might feel commiserated towards him and help him. Do you think this poor man is happy in the condition in which he is going through? The answer is absolutely no. To go through these harsh conditions a lot of effort is needed. Whereas a man living in a mansion would live his life to the fullest.
It has become a mannerism in our society that people always associate happiness with wealth. To some extent, it is true but in my opinion family and friends also have a very important role in our life. They are not only there to support you. But to motivate and cherish every moment of your life. No one has a perfect life. These ups and downs and all these horrendous moments which make you feel hopeless are the most important ones. To live a happy life we should stay positive and never care what anyone thinks.
The water dripped from the sky. It was the end of the rainy season. I was walking alone in the dark night at around 6.30 pm waiting for the clock to reach the time when my father would come home and let me in. I had the keys in my hands but my experiences in the retrospect supported the coward person inside me and held me back. The darkness creeped me out. It scared me to death. Various tragic situations flashed before my eyes and so I completely lost the courage to get inside.
My cloak had soaked from the rain and my hands were freezing to an extent that I reckoned that I might lose my fingers. I didn’t know how to abate thee absurd ideas from arising in my mind. As they incarcerated me within myself and staggered me to realize myself. I stood in the porch of a distant relative and didn’t have the courage to go inside. Not because I am an introvert person but because I was unable to find a valid reason or excuse. They weren’t my grandparents, whose house I could barge in at any hour of the day. And still, they never complained and always welcomed me in with a benevolent smile.But unfortunately those days were gone and i was here standing alone.
Modern advancements have revolutionized our world. Modern media influences various means of communication e.g radio, internet, newspaper, and television. There are many positives and negatives associated with social media. If someone cajoled you to spend the day without any electronic devices. Can you abate this mannerism of clicking on-screen all day long? Obviously the answer will be no. Because we have become so indulged in it that it is now an intricate task to abandon it.The positive impacts have outnumbered the negative ones. Hundred of years ago people were completely obscured of the fact that it would be possible to communicate with distant relatives easily. Modern media creates a better understanding among people and embrace their differences.
Moreover, different apps and news channels make us cognizant about what is happening in the world. From my vantage point, I think that attaining knowledge about your surroundings is necessary,
Furthermore, reading articles on social media can influence a person in many ways. It embellishes your personality and makes a person strong-headed and straight-minded. Nowadays, people are not incarcerated to take part only in school competitions but they can also compete with students worldwide. This boosts up your confidence level and prepares them to face the music and conquer their fears. Most people are oblivious of their congenital and innate abilities.perhaps if you might start writing today, you might become a renowned writer tomorrow. Modern media help us to identify who we really are.
Although if a person is not vigilant social media can have a unscrupulous and detrimental effect. But it's up to us which path to choose. However, most people in our society have a narrow mindset and they consider social medias a major source of distraction in the lives of teenagers, subsiding them away from their goals.
These people can never be successful in life. As there is a famous saying by George Bernard shah
‘those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything’
The mesmerizing beauty of the sun beguiled me to look outside and observe the charisma of nature. The light illuminated the dark sky and shunted away all my obnoxious thoughts out of my mind. The intangible light of the sun filled my heart with hope that today God will bring before me an incredible case so that I can prove myself in front of the people who think I am a complete failure. I was so indulged in my thoughts that I didn’t seem to notice that someone was knocking on the door. It was my secretary. For the first time excitement and exhilaration reflected from her face. This time I was sure that God had listened to me earlier than usual.
She gave me a file which stated the case of a 25 years old man who was found in a forest by the police. He had been lost since when he was 10 years old. I was kind of shocked and perplexed that such a unique case had been handed over to me. It was more like a job of a curious detective rather than a therapist. But I couldn’t repudiate it because it was an order by the police. Even if I did I would have created problems only for myself. I asked my secretary to send the person inside. An enraged uncanny and decrepit looking person with a long beard and wearing a black T-shirt and trousers below entered the room and sat down on the chair. I wanted to make him feel comfortable so that he would open up to me.
So I introduced myself to him and expected him to do the same but he kept quiet and I could only hear the tapping sound of his finger And he was constantly staring at the painting behind me.
So I rephrased my question ‘If you don’t like to talk or it is difficult for you to fathom and absorb the details, you may write or paint in order to express your thoughts'
For the first time I heard a courteous voice from inside his heart that he was willing to paint. Days passed and he used to come in to my room and sit by the window and paint. It was difficult for me to concede that living away from civilization for a copious amount of time. He had such impeccable manners. Even though his face was Apathetic but his paintings left me bedazzled his life. Although he had painted his life in black and white but there were colours inside his bashful heart. He was innocent but the bravest person had ever met. I noticed that day by day as he let out his frustration through these paintings his dressing got better and better he started to lighten up. The reality was that his father had died fighting in the war. However his son was incarcerated by some enemy forces for 15 years. His mother had abandoned him and ran off with another guy.
Harry spent his childhood in the under cellar with pain and agony. Every day he used to go to the door and try to open it. But he was too frail and his strength didn’t allow him to. Then he would start crying and end up gnashing his teeth in rage. The only things he found solace in the books provided by the spectator. He had no hope of escaping from cellar. To his surprise one day when he woke up the cellar door was unlocked. And so he ran away until the police caught him. After critical investigations he was sent to me for treatment.
When you spend lashing amount of time with someone and its time to leave then melancholy and sadness takes over you. We both were sad. He was going back to his mother to start his new life and I was going to stay here. With his beautiful memories. A month had been passed and there was a strong emotional connection created between us. This connection grew stronger as the days of his departure came closer. He knew I was completely heartbroken. So he promised me that he would come and visit me for the last time. I was very happy and exhilarated for our next meeting and this time I decided to pour out my heart in front of them. And tell him the affection that I felt towards me. I took every preemptive action for this special occasion of my life. The next day I picked up the phone and was shattered to hear that harry had died from cardiac arrest and had left me before fulfilling my wish.
Responsibility is an important thing when it comes to baby sitting.I thought that babysitting would be a great way to learn more about how a child’s minds works. But eventually it turned out to be the most loathsome experience of my life. When my aunt requested me to take care of her 3 years old daughter. I readily accepted it and assured her that she would not regret it later.
You might find this absurd but I literally contemplated and did a research on the do’s and don’ts of taking care of a child. Sarah became exhilarated as she saw me. From that I reckoned that we might have a good time together. She merily played with her toys and watched her favourite show. She was so indulged in it that she didn’t even bother to notice what was happening in her vicinity.
As the time passed I felt very proud of myself that I had almost accomplished the most troublesome task. I started reading my novel and before I knew Sarah had disappeared from the living room. My face turned in to a frantic scowl because I couldn’t find her.
After a while I heard some noise from the kitchen. Sarah was sitting inside the fridge cherishing on a black forest cake. I let out a scream of anguish. The whole fridge was enshrouded with copious amounts of chocolate .I was baffled and perplexed on how to the handle the situation.
I wiped all the chocolate from Sarah’s face and gave her a bath. I told her to play in the living room while I cleaned up the kitchen. However ,I was oblivious that another disaster was on my way. After cleaning the kitchen , I returned. The living room was filled with a horrendous smell.
At first I couldn’t figure out what it was.But then Sarah indicated at something brown and disgusting. She resembled it with chocolate. Her diaper had leaked. This was the most disgusting thing I had ever seen. I cleaned it up so I wouldn’t get scolded.
I smiled at her innocence and admired her serenity. That in the midst of so much chaos she remained tranquiled and unruffled.
I was standing alone oblivious of where I was going.I knew that I had to induce bravery with in my self like a lion. The trees around me were breathing heavily.The Autumn leaves on the ground were like crispy chips.They made crunchy sound as I stepped on them.The sky was clear and the clouds were soft as a pillow. The ambience was calm and beautiful as dawn. But with all these beguiled and charming things around me I was furious like an eagle.I was hopeless.It was impossible for me to bear the agony. I was blind as a bat unable to escape this terror.Suddenly the snow started drifting softly down on the grass. A breeze which created a cold sensation helped me abate my fears.
thoughts shunted away from my mind and my mood started to lighten up.I was trolling in the corridor of my college when I heard belligerent screams from the adjacent classroom. I got really scared and hid behind the door to get a better view of what was happening.
From my vantage point I could see a boy forcing a girl to sit on the rickety chair.He mercilessly abused her and cajoled her to keep her mouth closed as it will over in just afew minutes.But that girl wasn’t naïve enough to let an unknown guy blacken her reputation. The boy constantly denigrated her but she got more and more stronger.She tried hard to untangle the ropes around around her neck which made her suffocate.
She seemed unruffled by his filthy words.which made the guy even more belligerent. He stabbed her in her back as a result she fell down on the marble floor. He enshrouded her with a black blanket so that she wasn’t visible to other people.and then he grabbed her hair and dragged the girl on the floor. The girl was screaming with terror . I knew that she could no longer bear the excruciating pain. I really wanted to help her but I was waiting for the right moment. Or else we both would be stuck in this precarious situation. Suddenly I saw the guy coming towards the door . I escaped and hid in the other room. He had locked and incarcerated her in the room.I felt terrible for her. He had told her that he would be back with his friends for more pleasure.I was very indignant and belligerent by his horrendous attitude. For a moment I stood there perplexed that how can someone be so cruel and ruthless to not feel ashamed of abusing a naïve girl. As soon as the guy left I rescued the girl and even notified the management of the college to take strict action about this incident and file a case against this guy.I took her to the hospital so that she could get proper medication.I felt a sense of accomplishment by helping her.
I didn’t feel commiserated for her but I was actually bedazzled because she didn’t relinquish in fighting the war between life and death but struggled to stay alive. The injuries on her body will fade away from her skin but the repercussions will stay on her mind for the rest of her life making her gloom and doom.
I want to express my extreme dissatisfaction towards the problem of litter amalgamation in Northern areas of Pakistan.
On 25th July 2019, I was standing in khunjerab pass frowning at the heap of trash which was thrown adjacent to the trashcan.No one could have ever imagined seeing such an awful scene at the height of 4693 metres . where it is almost impossible to breath for some people. For the first time in my life I was completely blown away with how much fidelity and sense of belonging Pakistani people have for their land.
Furthermore, Attabad lake which is one of the most mesmerizing and beautiful lakes of Pakistan has also been left to rack and ruin.
With great disappointment, I would have to admit that Throwing litter (plastic bottles, wrappers, pampers, etc) everywhere has become a mannerism of our society. As much as this norm has fully contributed to polluting our cities if proper decisive actions are not taken we will bring ugliness to the northern areas of Pakistan. And soon the tourism industry for which the stakes are high will be demolished.
Furthermore, the unfortunate country of Pakistan and its people will be left empty-handed.
Consequently, we should join our hands together and tackle the issue with great care. Because leaving this problem unsolved only depicts the laziness and carelessness of our higher authorities. Secondly, the copious amount of diseases are caused due to litter accumulation. If trash collects water it will provide misquotes a place to harbor.which spreads malaria. It also has adverse effects on wildlife. Similarly, it is also not pleasing to eyes which will decrease our local tourism in the near future. The main solution that I can see to overcome this problem is to enforce liter laws and impose a heavy fine on people who commit this unpleasant act.
