Not impressed at all.

Problem with the kids like Zakia Belkhiri is that they are confused.

 They are living in free democratic society of first worlds where religion is personal thing, where having rallies of anti any religion is no big deal. They are second generation of immigrants from the  third world countries where religion, culture, languages, ethnicity, tradition is so important.  However,  these kids are so far away from their parents' homeland, and have no desire to ever leave the comfort, and freedom of the west for their parents' homeland which is Islamic in their values. However, they don't want to be known as Western either. They try to find answer of their identity crisis in religion.

Someone please tell them that they can't have  a cake and eat it too.

On a serious note, despite living in the western world, these kids have so much  pressure of not becoming like western. And this is the saddest part.

Anyway, this whole selfie episode of Zakia makes the west hero. It shows how easily a head covered girl  can go out  and take selfie freely.

I can bet, Ms. Belkhiri would be asking permission to go out first from her father and brothers on a sunny day with her friends just for outing  if she was living in any Muslim majority country. Countries like Belgium give them full freedom. None of them harmed her.

Those protesters were peaceful. They are actually group of non significant peeps in the western world.

Sometimes I feel so pity for our girls. How much over  thinking they do  before going out, taking selfies and posting it on the social media.

Parents of such confused kids should also understand this dilemma. Islam can protect them from becoming western. It is they who decided the  west to be their home. Sailing on two boats is a risky business.

Ferer Hall.

During group photo shot Dr.S told me about some vintage cars' display at the Ferer Hall.

  She is an easy person, still single like me and fond of going out unlike my other single female friends who prefer to stay at home, go home after work or hang out with family only.

We  like fresh air.We like having channa chaat from  Jamma  after a long day in university. We like going places.   And most of the time we decide our outings at bus stop. Chalna hai?

 So as usual after signing out, she asked me again at gate.  I was all ready to go.

We got the rickshaw and the didn't know the route.  Neither S knew where it is. I have been there once and all I remembered was that it is somewhere near the Arts Council.

Rickshaw wala should know routes ..please !

Anyway, deal was for 60 rupees but we passed the Arts Council and then  came to the Press Club, driver started  getting pissed off. We asked police peeps who were standing side outside the PC.

We finally reached the Ferer Hall and gave 100 rupees. The chik chik !!!!

There was no sign of vintage cars dur dur taak. Boys were playing cricket outside the main Sadeqien Gallery. And it was not evening yet according to Karachites' standard. Park/garden was kinda empty.

Actually people prefer to go out after 6 pm. It is with almost every park in Karachi. In summer, days are long. They stay their after sunset. We are night people.

It become obvious to us that there is no vintage car exhibition anymore. We went to the Sadqeen  Gallery. It was open.

A self taught artist, Mushtaq Lashari's  painting  exhibition was going on. Theme of the exhibition was old buildings of Karachi. He covered almost all of them. It was technically my first ever visit to any art exhibition. I loved it.  His work is neat and unique. All his paintings were made by real tea and coffee.

Unique, innt?

We stay there for 20 minutes and had good chat with him.

There are few other pics but they are in Raw format which are heavier than JPGs files. I can't develop them as my PC as  ram is exceeding its limit. Developing Raw files into JPGs is quite a work.

Sharing those I could developed.

I was doing at least OK.

I wanna be back to blogging. It kept  me sane for so long. It gave me motivation. It gave  me hope that everything will be fine no matter what.

I used to be so focused. Despite having less time due to university I was doing OK. There was purpose, there was hope.  There was routine. I was  doing at least OK.  Then heaven knows why...how..but something  happened..... I lost the track. 

I am clueless..more confused than ever. 

Despite having  3 days off, I did nothing productive. Papers are unchecked. Camera is still on my table, three novels I bought are still untouched. Only thing I did was cooking.

There is no sadness, no depression, a bit frustrating but that is also almost gone after making myself understand that what I want is too much, my expectations are way high ...however it just feel like I am lacking motivation. I have gave up on things so long ago. I guess I have hit the rock bottom in a nice way. 

My emotions made me fool. My happiness mislead me.

Letting it go.

It is hard to let it go. All wrong calculation, assumption, emotions, and  feelings brought me once again where I was in 2010 😕. No one realized how hard it  was for me to accept it once again. I was happy just to see it and starting thinking it is for me.  It was another illusion. I  was wrong once again.  It wasn't for me. Despite knowing  all that I  fooled and humiliate  my self once again. There is this loser type pattern I have been following for so long. In the end I am just hurt. Let's call it a phase. I'm fixing it. All I'm  paying  that if it is not for me then it ends as quickly as possible so I get outta this funk.
