Saf ____my only left over like minded girl friend had been flown to Rawalpindi today . Her father worked at some pvt airline and she wanted to be a stewardesses. Mine ran an advertising company and I wanted to be an anchor woman .However, life has some things totally different for us .We ended up being some thing else.
Both were so vain in university.
She was from different department. One day she was sitting in corridor of my department and doing her revision. I was doing mine .Those were exams days. First thing I asked was:
Permed or real curls?
She said 100% real curls !!And then she asked, " Real straight or re-bonding something."
I replied 100% real straight .And we became friends.
When ever I meet someone I check hair out and its cut for sure.
I have off today so I went airport to see her off . Friday was also off because of 23rd March and today is Saturday . Tomorrow Sunday .OMG, I wanna die :D .
It's 4: 11 p.m. at moment over here . Came back home from airport an hour ago .Chow down rice with curry and hit computer to check out what you commented on my Jihad post . Not bad, ahan .You know ,that post was much needed . It hurts when peeps call me 'Paki" or " Muzzie" .
Anyway, Sonia is online . She does not even know I am writing this post while chewing the fat with her . My first Indian friend :) . She is also a southern like me. I haven't told her that I am coming from an airport. She will read it by her self. No sweat ..
Also listening Hasan Nisar's interview on you tube he gave to the CNBC's show "Syasat Mana Hai " ( here ) for 23rd March . He rocks , man . Not watching ,just listening because it's pretty impossible to watch while chatting and blogging .What a juggler I am .
OK before Ammi yells at me, let me complete this post .
I am sad but happy for her as well . Lets be optimistic she be back for Eid , or for any other occasion . Rawalpindi is not that far . I will not have to wait for her like I do for my other friends , cousins and relatives who lives overseas____million miles away from me .
I only have one real uncle ,who is a loner and doesn't interact with us at all and few not so-interesting -relatives over here.I don’t see them all that much . They are totally cool people , but I don’t know . We meet sometimes, out of the blue, very often_____occasionally .Whatever the word is ! Kabhi Kabar .
All my mother's real siblings and other relatives had been immigrated overseas long ago in 90's and my fathers peeps are still in Bangladesh . I haven't meet them yet .
I met my Seattle aunt, her husband, and my 3 cousins after some 15 years in May 2011 . It was a fine experience .She was here for her in-law's daughter's wedding . Most of the time they stay at their place.
Last year, one of my first cousin got married in Toronto . Can you believe the whole USA was there___Every man and his dog. Then three of my other kissing cousins got married in USA, the whole Canada went to USA. This May another cousin is getting married in Toronto, and USA peeps are getting ready !!!!!!
However ,I love this scenarios .Yes.I know cousins can be way fun. But in my case friends are quite better. And you know, this part of me is like super cool. Well, I do share a special bond with them which I can not share with my millions miles away cousins . And I also don't wanna be in their dangerous gossip loving circle ,where everyone knows everyone.
No other scientific logic why I love this scenario. Only thing is that friends are also living their lives and moving on which is a wake up call for me I reckon , isn't?
In 90's when everyone was leaving I also wanted to go there but not any more ! Now, I am much better in my own world by the grace of Alla'ah . Living my life because this is what Alla'ah has decided for me .
I am more mature, more lucky , more happy .
Who knows about the future ?
I might be traveling around the world.
Karachi is not that bad place to live, neither that good .Cool mornings, long noons. Evenings full with life. Beaches .No matter its heat sucks other .It's smoking hot.
There are evil things too: Political unrest, target killing, strikes, etc etc .So,yeah ......Living here ain't that easy .It's rich peep's city.
However, right now I am here, chilling.
Loving Karachi Jan !
( Ja'an =Love )
