Types of people in your office

The Boss:
This person has authority over everything, even your bathroom breaks. He/she makes you work your butt off and barely gives you credit for it. Some bosses make you work so much that they end up making your dead ancestors dizzy. There’re many kinds of bosses. Some inspire while some make life miserable for their employees. Either you look up to your boss or you absolutely hate your boss; you’re in trouble if you dare to go against him/her.

The BossThe deputy:
This person acts like he’s in charge while the boss is away. He tries to impose office rules everywhere, even in the bathroom. His job is to add to everyone’s worries and to spy on all his colleagues.
The gossip machine:
This colleague of yours has nothing better than to collect gossip all day and then spread it to the far ends of the world. Seems to be ‘the deputy’s’ favourite person.
gossip machineThe hungry one:
This person is always hungry. Only talk about food, all the time. I am sure this one even dreams of food.
hungry oneThe blue-eyed boy:
This one is the boss’ favourite. The boss loves this one no matter what. This one is a perfect example of a perfect employee. Punctual, determined and self-motivated.
The blue-eyed boyThe talkative one:
This employee of yours never shuts up, ever. You’re always hearing boring stories of their life.

Body shaming- a torment

God has made us perfect the way we are, with all our imperfections. We come in all shapes, sizes and colours. We’re beautiful this way, diversity is our beauty. He made some of us taller than the rest and made some of us shorter than the rest. Some people, He made, wider. Some, He made, thinner. Everyone cannot have the same height, width and colour.

We don’t choose how our bodies should have been made. We only choose what to do with this gift of God. He loves us all equally. Then why can’t we accept others the way God has made them. Why must we try to mold everyone to this perception of beauty that has been ingrained in our minds by people who own the fashion industry, people we don’t know even exist. Who gave them the authority to decide what we should consider beautiful and what we should deem ugly.

You pick up any magazine, watch any TV show, all you get to see is people being targeted for their appearance. We are fed a bunch of disgusting lies. That’s beyond shallow. We are being brainwashed into judging people by the way they dress and the way they look. We overlook every other aspect of a person’s personality if he doesn’t fit our delusional beauty standards. We claim him to be undesirable and unworthy of any respect and acknowledgement. Only those are revered who come up to our beauty standards. This is outrageous.
Nobody gave us a license to judge others or a license to force people to change their bodies to our liking. We don’t own anybody. Their bodies are their own. Don’t let magazines and TV define beauty for you. Ever wonder what body shaming victims go through? It may seem harmful to you but ask victims. They’ll tell you how your brutal words shatter their confidence, how they can’t seem to look at themselves in the mirror. There are so many effects of body shaming, one can’t even imagine. Victims suffer with social anxiety, higher amounts of infections, poorer health, crushed self esteem and eating disorders like Bulimia and Anorexia.

This is what a few victims had to say when they were asked about their body shaming experiences.
”My in-laws body shame me all the time, their words shatter my confidence and make me feel ugly and unworthy.” – Sadia
“I was body shamed as a child. I was called fat. I suffered Bulimia first and then Anorexia because of this. I was a fat child and an extremely skinny 23 year old. I finally overcame these disorders. I am happy with my weight and the way I look.”- Hina
“My friends always make fun of my body. It’s not proportionate according to them. I have no self-confidence. I hate my body. I just want to wear baggy clothes and hide myself that nobody ever gets to see me. It’s not in my hands to fix my body.” – Anum

According to Mehwish Siddiqui, an art student, “People in our society claim to go ‘see’ a potential marriage proposal rather than ‘meet’ a potential marriage proposal.” We must change the way we think, even help change the way our elders think because nobody has the right to body shame another. Remember it’s not love or concern, it’s bullying.

When there is a university for all, we actually do get ALL and every type!

People from all over the country are admitted in Universities, education is a necessity of life. A place where everyone is accepted and appreciated to achieve something they couldn’t have on their own, a higher level education platform, which is the place where all sorts of people are found, if you look in the right places:

  1. The Parhakoos:

The Parhaakoos are the rarest breeds, they are seen with notes and books in hand, and weird faces with sharp noticing eyes, always looking for extra stuff to lay there filthy parhaakoo paws on, first to enter classes last to leave.

  • Hangout Spots: Library
  • How to locate them: people in stealth mode, and hurried walks with a focused face and noticing eyes.

  1. The Wanna bees:

They are observing and carrying it out immediately kinda people, they care about everything and anything that inspires them (which is usually everything), everything is image and image is everything to them, they hang out in groups of odd people, odd as in odd numbers (but I like the way your mind works).

Love birds walking as close as the traffic of Karachi at 6:00pm, they sit together, move together, blend in classes together, eat, walk, laugh, smile, wink, sneeze, cough and what not, they are the walking definition of the word “Together”.

  • Hangout Spots: Corners
  • How to locate them: Opposite gender sitting as close as Karachi’s traffic.
  • How to avoid them: Avoid the corners and you will avoid them.
  • Frequent sightings: Corners
  1. The loners:

Poorest souls, lurk in the shadows like vampires, never steps out in the light, avoids teachers and does everything in their power to NOT give a presentation, teachers see them and try to motivate them but fail.

Hangout Spots: No one knows.

How to locate them: Catch them in classes, as they disappear in a whiff of smoke after class.

How to avoid them: Never avoid them as you might be their only friend.

Frequent sightings: Only in classes.

  1. The Stags

Group of care free boys, roaming around in a gang like manor, swearing like there’s no hereafter and literally LOLing like there ain’t no tomorrow.

  • How to avoid them: become a “Maila”(see point No. 10 for assistance)
  • Frequent sightings: 1st benches in class, and expensive restaurants check-ins on Facebook.
  1. The Sisters:

Two types of The Sisters exist in every university;

1.The Badmash Company(Female version): sisters in arms, unbreakable and non penetrating group of Badmash Girls, carefree and independent, not even the stags and mailas can stand up to them.

2.The Calm Company: highly careful and sophisticated group of girls, good students and their life’s aim is to gossip and only gossip, no boys allowed within a 10 meter radius.

  • Hangout Spots: Wherever they want.
  • How to locate them: Group of strictly Females, with a few losers guys following.
  • How to avoid them: Men MUST avoid them at all costs, the way has not yet been figured out but as experience teaches us we must not linger near them.
  • Frequent sightings: In the grounds roaming or running from one place to another.
  1. The All rounder’s:

All rounder’s, are the best people in any university, they blend in with everyone and everywhere, wherever they go the meet and greet people on their way, as they know everyone everywhere. They are the people who are the nicest breed of humans.

  • Hangout Spots: Where ever they stand for 5 minutes that becomes their spot.
  • How to locate them: Just be in need and wish for help, you’ll see an all rounder walking towards you.
  • How to avoid them: Whatever might be the reason “NEVER” avoid an all rounder, as that will be the last time you’ll ever see them.
  • Frequent sightings: Difficult to see as they blend in pretty well with the crowd.
  1. The Mailaas:

Even after songs released on them they just can’t get enough of the university, they are the black spot on a white wall, a punctured tire on a Mercedes, an anday vala burger served with timaatar, a pizza without cheese, a coke without gas, a lassi without malai etc. Their life overflows with color, they flaunt florescent colors as if these were invented for them. Lame jokes, highly vulgar comments, questions that doesn’t make any sense, makes teachers go crazy,
they are like grease, once you touch it, it doesn’t comes off easily.

  • Hangout Spots: They are like air, sadly they are everywhere.
  • How to locate them: WHY! Why in the world would anyone even think of locating them?
  • How to avoid them: If you see them approaching, run like hell, DO NOT look back!
  • Frequent sightings: In the purest form of their language if asked “Kahan ho” and I quote “ MANDI mai ”; for those who don’t know mandi can exist anywhere, where ever there are a whole lot of girls in the vicinity, you’ll see them glaring and smirking.

The reason of writing all this was just to describe a normal everyday university life, which we go through but don’t usually talk about.

10 Relationship Advice from a Married Woman!

As people say, ““shaadi woh laddoo jo na khaaye woh pachtaye, jo khaaye woh bhi pachtaaye” now it’s on you how you want to pachtaofay in this mithai ki dukaan and which specific laddu you want to have in life.  Just to make it a little easier for the ones who recently have eaten that laddoo (it can be till ka lado, moti chooor ka laddo, besun k laddu etc)

Here are the 10 tips or advises:

  1. Don’t get married!
  2. If you do, then don’t lose yourself in the marriage. Understand yourself, your self-importance, goals and achievements. You got married doesn’t mean you mentally devote yourself to each other, emotionally yes! Mentally a big no.
  3. Don’t follow the advice of others on how you should live your married life. You are in the marriage with only one other person (hopefully) take his advice not others, mutually discuss how to make things better in your marriage.
  4. Compromise is a two-way game.
  5. Respect his space and make him respect yours. Leave him alone to watch his favourite game and allow yourself to have your own me-time. In simple words; don’t be a chipku wife!
  6. Don’t depend on your husband completely for finance. Yes, no doubt it’s his obligation to financially support you but give that poor man a break! Feel the satisfaction of earning and spending your own money without being answerable to him on why you brought another lawn ka suit when you already have closest full of them.
  7. Never bad-mouth about your husband and in-laws to anyone, I repeat not to anyone! We, women, tend to be very complaining and just to take our anger out we end up bad-mouthing or gossiping about our husbands and in-laws, later we might forget it but the person who we spitted that gossip too will not and tell ten more people with an addition of ten more things to it.
  8. Don’t hide things or lie to your husband, the only time you should lie is how much the new lawn ka suit or how much the new purse which you will most probably only use twice or thrice cost you, otherwise hiding things should be out of the question. A marriage only fails when communication fails! Make sure your husband knows the story before any other source other then you tell him.
  9. Support him; in his downfall and in his success support him. Men are like kids they need self appreciations to keep them moving in life and that too especially from their wife.
  10. Last but not the least; don’t compete with your husband as to who is better, as to who has the last line in the argument. Sometimes staying quite for 5 minutes can do wonders in a relationship. Equality is the best policy.

9 Types of Dancers We See at a Mehndi

One of the very few things people are excited about at a Shaadi is the mehndi dances. No Shaadi is complete without mehndi dances, in fact, the Shaadi actually starts, when the dance practices for the mehndi begins. When there is mehndi, there are dance practices, when there are dance practices there are dancers, the overly hyper excited dancer to the lousy bored dancers to the and the list goes one.

Here are 9 types of dancers we all get to see on every mehndi.

1.The so call leader: That one person who self proclaims him/her self the leader, from how many songs to dance on, who will dance on which song and what steps are be included and excluded. Turns a dance practice into a battlefield.

2.The overexcited one: Wants to dance on all the songs despite the fact he/she is a really bad dancer. Plays the whole game on their Govinda expressions.

3.The robot: Has zero flexibility and is stiff as a stick. You give them any step and they will do it with a straight face and a straight body.

4.The ditcherz: Show up on the first and only dance practice. That is the first and the last of them you will ever see, they are full of excuses, Job mein busy hu, family mein shaadi hai, exams horahy hai yaar!

5.The under pressure choreography:  If you are a good dancer, everybody expects you to come out with magical dance steps in seconds. They put on the song and sit down to look at you with expectant eyes while you stand there for a while saying “Sochnay tou dou” and desperately waiting for some miraculous help. So much pressure!

6.The “important” dancer: The bride’s sister, first cousin, brother in law and best friend, the ones who get all the best songs, solos and front-of-the-line attention, even if they are a bad dancer. It’s just unfair and makes you want to beg your sister/best friend to marry soon.

7.The leftie: The life and death situation at every dance practice, the nerve racking moment to hear at every dance step “Ye right sey karna hai ya left sey?” until someone inevitably shouts “SAB KUCH RIGHT SEY HOGA!” to which there comes a scared voice “Yaar mein leftie hun!

8.The synchronization officer: Who is in charge of making sure all arms, hands and legs move together. Who feels it’s his/her religious duty to keep a watch, all dancers eat, breathe, sleep, drink and if left up to them even poop together!

9.The zaberdasti invited people: Who basically had no idea when they were getting ready for the event, that they will be brought up on stage to perform. And because of the immense pressure and limelight they end up giving a performance of a lifetime

Now you must be wondering which category have you belonged to in your past dance performances in mehndis, and which roles you will opt for in the upcoming mehndis in future

Signs Nobody likes You

Ever wonder what people think of you. Maybe you’re assuming you’re well-liked. Maybe you think people are dying to invite you to their parties. Maybe… just maybe nobody really likes you. You know that can be a huge possibility. It could be anything about you; your personal hygiene or your boring humour or just the way you suck the fun out of everything.
• You see your friends laughing together at something or you see them absorbed in an interesting conversation. They stop in mid-conversation as you approach them and meaningfully glance at each other. That’s a sign they don’t want to let you in on their conversation.
• You text people randomly or for something important, they never text back.
• Nobody ever responds when you make plans on WhatsApp groups. Even if they text back, it’s just to tell you how busy they are.
• Nobody ever calls you up or texts you.
• You’re never invited to parties or weddings nor are you ever asked to hang out. You only get to know what everyone is doing through their check-ins and pictures that they put up on social media.
• Nobody ever comes over to your place. You’re usually disappointed after inviting people over. They never show up.• Your friends have inside jokes which you do not understand.
• You always get to know things about your friends from social media or other people. That’s because no one ever shares anything with you. In fact, people hide stuff from you.
• You ask a question and everyone pretends not to have heard it. Nobody bothers answering.
• People only come to you when they need favours from you otherwise they pretend not to even recognize you. They’ll only come to you when they are in need.
• They make weird faces at the things you say or at your jokes or simply at the way you blink your eyes.
• They pay no attention to your stories nor do they ever congratulate you for any achievement or bother to cheer you up when you are down.
• No one makes eye contact with you instead they prefer playing on their phones while you speak.
• You are lonely and bored on weekends while everyone is out partying.

If all these signs are relatable then you’re definitely, definitely not like. There could be a gazillion reasons why people don’t like you. It could be because of your personal hygiene or your bad breath. It could be because you can’t control your aggressive streak or you argue way too much on senseless topics or you’re downright mean and insensitive towards other people. You could lack basic manners and not realize that. You could have ridiculous humour or you can’t stop judging everyone around you or you could be a party pooper and simply boring.

It’s Time People Stop Believing In These Fake Pirs And Mureeds!

Ever wondered who these pirs and mureeds are? We’ve all come across wall chalking where the pirs provide their contact numbers claiming to have supernatural powers and cure to every problem.

My question is how do people really know if these people are authentic or not or if they really have superpowers. It’s just psychological thinking that’s set in these peoples minds. Let’s face it, they’ve proved time and again that they’re quite good at their job of scamming, but at the people who happily volunteer to be used and abused by these charlatans and then go whining about their misfortune to the authorities, seeking commiseration and justice. Who else is to blame when a pir shamelessly asks a grown man to leave his grown-up daughter at his place overnight so he can “cure” her, and he agrees?

First of all  Islamic history has witnessed several pirs who have been helping people with their extraordinary powers which are blessing on them from their Lord. But these Wali Allah are not allowed to disclose their powers, superiority over a common man, they live a simple life like any other human and politely help the people who are in treat problems. Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi, Qutub Uddin Aulia, Data Ganj Bakhsh (etc.) are the names of just a few of the saints who lived an honest life and helped people without getting a single penny in return.

We had only seen these Pirs do their publicity through wall chalkings but now these people are marketing themselves through social media and claim to have a solution to everything be it problem regarding marriage, divorce or get anyone screwed they claim to have a cure for everything.
