Education is the most important instrument for any society, it is the way to aware someone

Pakistan was established in 1947, it is more than 68 years of independence but it seems it is still not respected in the world community. Pakistan got independence with lots of difficulties. A very crucial time had passed by the great leaders during independence. At that time when there was nothing, all the things were pointless but Quaid-e-Azam was hopeful, he never lost his hope at that time. He knew the art of leading the nation, he knew how to guide the dishearten people, to keep hand in hand he told us the art of living life. The man with great power stood us as the Pakistani nation in the map of the world.

But now after independence,we do all those things which are wrong, we do wrong in our basic necessities too. Education is one of our basic necessity of life. In Pakistan, we always complain regarding our education system. More than 40% of population is illiterate. Karachi is the biggest city of Pakistan, although there are so many schools in karachi. One can easily find a school at the corner of every street.The students who are studying in government schools,they don’t know how to write & read.I usually see these type of students daily in my life. The person who earns 17000/- per month,he is not able to send his child to private school ultimately he sends them to government schools. The duty of parent is to send their children to school either government or private.

It’s a common saying in English, “Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.”

The duty of teachers start then. The duty is to teach the student in a way so that he starts thinking intensively and critically but unfortunately it doesn’t happen in reality.I called such schools ‘ghoost schools’ because they are not providing basic education. The female teachers usually talk about their homes, gossiping, talk about someone else if they attend the school. If she is not teaching to the best of her ability and is not putting in the requisite effort, she is also not being honest with her commitments,her profession and with herself.

It is a duty of every individual Pakistani to educate themselves and their child too but providing the education based on thinking deeply. ‘Education For Everyone’ it is a slogan of every government but they are not sincere about it. We have to solve the issues regarding our education system,we have to do something against all those issues. First starts with individual. PAKISTAN ZINDABAD

Being alive in a broad sense means you are happy and contended with your life

If one wants an explanation of life it’s a huge debate. Life is all about having faith,a faith which remains at it’s place despite of facing so many cruel waves. Yes I know how it feels when things go wrong, I know how it feels when hope seems to be your worst enemy and disappointment comes to meet you without knocking your door, I know how it feels when you can”t find peace without bursting into tears and your soul like a slave caught under the toe like a thunderstorm, I know how it feels when heart wrenching darkness capture you and throw you out into the thorny garden, in short so many bad things happen to you that you start losing faith.

a31376abb82b6ccae6db8e9041f1f498On the other hand I also know times of pure joy and happiness and keeping my mind set on those I can make through all of the hard times because faith is a way beyond imagination,a shadow beneath an old wrinkled tree,a shinning star residing somewhere in our hearts,a magical spark that invade your inner being with grope for hope,a firm belief on the existence of supreme authority,a sea with faithful nature despite of having so many cruel waves.All we need to do is to kill sharp cravings of life at the edge where our strength bows down with sparkling faith and live a happy and contended life.

imagesLet faith be the killer of all the painful sorrows and deep grieves that eats you up.As Martin Luther King said and i quote “Take the first step in faith,you don’t have to see the whole staircase,just take the first step!” Crave a tunnel of hope through the dark mountain of disappointment. Start accepting the things with a belief that you are not alone on the way to life.If the world weakens you with harsh words move on believing that creator is with you.Those who appreciate you are always there for you and those who demoralize continuously adopt measures to disgrace you so kill them with your kindness and reach your destiny.Hey there you are alive.! The world is just a temporary land where we all are just wanderers , what we need to learn is to struggle hard in a nutshell without any aim of show off. Believe me if you do this you are on top to the sky.Lets live our life and crave a remarkable story in the history which could left a deep mark of inspiration for the future generations.
