About Me

I am Dr Sumaiya Hasan from Karachi, Pakistan.I have done my bachelors in dental surgery.I am a dry and antisocial yet a simple person.My philosophy of life is "be different and do different".I have special affection with nature. If I was not a dentist, I would have been a nature photographer or an artist. I have a poor power of expression and for this reason you wont find any frequent posts on my blog. I usually donot find enough time and words to express my feelings and experiences and most of the times post videos and pictures in relation to my feelings on my blog.

Just A Thought

Sad but I possess almost half of the qualities of the unsuccessful people column. Someone rightly said "Man is a social animal"..yes animals we are!! ready to kill each other, blame each other, let down eachother inorder to reach the stars of glory and success..I miss those times when I used to be the owner of the qualities of the left hand column..the successful people!!not much time has passed..just 4 years have converted me to an unsuccessful creature!! aniimal...yes thats a more appropriate word not just for me but for many people out there..it was just 4 or 5 years back that i did nothing, did not struggle at all but achieved all my dreams..some magic used to work for me and used to help me...magic of sense of gratitude, forgiving each other..it was unfortunate that this magic was broken by the curse of  sense of entitlement, criticism,anger. I was probably not able to absorb the shock as I saw people changing faces, changing personalities after every 24 hours to get their benefits. Unfortunately I was not determined to save my magical qualities and the curse turned me into an animal...one more ANIMAL added to this world of animals and one HUMAN subtracted!

Durre Shehwaar

This is not the first time I am writing a review for a Pakistani drama on my blog. I am a big fan of Pakistani dramas since always and specially after the launch of HUM TV which is now the leading drama channel of Pakistan with its great producers like Momina Duraid and some talented directors like Babar Javed. HUM TV has been adopting stories from the novels of a very talented  and versatile writer Umera Ahmed. One such story is Durre Shehwaar which recently ended. An absorbing play which got famous primarily because of the dialogues and also due to the atural acting from Sanam Baloch, the rising Sun amongst the female Pakistani drama actresses; who played the main role of Durre Shehwaar in this drama. I dont wont to write a summary of the serial here as it might spoil the fun and joy of watching the drama for those who still havent seen it; although am sure most of the people must have seen the serial already and as usual am a bit late in writing the review. Its basically a story of a girl who is raised up in a small family which consists of loving parents and two daughters who are raised by their parents like rincesses but the elder daughter is married in a small home crowded with 4 siblings and a bad tempered mother in law who expects too much from Shehwaar and is never happy with the efforts of her daughter in law and never bothers to appreciate her. Its not just her mother in law..Shehwaar has to change herself entirely to make her husband happy who says he wont be happy with Shehwaar unless she makes his mother and sisters happy. In all the chaos, Shehwaar's father's letters to her are a source of hope and life for her. He advices her through his letters which are full of hope and care. two such letters am putting here:

Is school mai aur is imtihaan mai main kabhi position nahi lay sakti is liye mere result card mai kabhi distinction nahi hosakti shayad grace marks say pass hojaun laiken ziada imkaan hai main fail hojaoon.Kabhi kabhar apna aap mujhay bilkul sifar lagta hai zero jis ki koi value nahi hoti useless.Aap ki beti is ghar mai sifar jesi zindagi guzar rahi hai sirf aik sifar aur aap kehtay hain k u
meed rakkho cheezain badlain gi.Roaz subha say lekar raat tak Umeed ko khojti rehti hun laiken Abba umeed tu kahin nazar nahi aati.

Meri Piyari Beti Durre Shehwar,
Umeed ko dhoonda nahi jata umeed ko rakha jata hai apnay andar apnay dil mai apnay zehan mai yeh nannhay beej ki tarah hoti hai chand dinon mai beej zameen ki matti say bahar tu ajata hai laiken ussay darakht ban’nay mai bohat dair lagti hai laiken wo darakht banta zaroor hai agar us ko pani diya jata rahay agar matti ko narm rakkha jaye.Sifar ki zaroorat her adad ko parti hai kuch ban’nay k liye sifar jis adad k saath lagay us ki qadar-o-qeemat kayi guna barha deta hai tu agar apnay aap ko sidar samajhti ho tab bhi tum qeemti ho tab bhi tum bekaar nahi tab bhi tum her ginti say pehlay aao gi her ginti ka aghaaz tum hi say hoga aur her 9 adad k baad aik daffa tumhari zaroorat paray gi.Aglay moar per janay k liye tabdeeli jab bhi aye gi tum say aye gi.Sifar say aye gi

and...when her mother in law refuses to buy her some important eatables and medicines necessary in pregnancy, Shehwaar does not complain but is spell bound to see a box full of eatables and snacks which her parents send to her from the other city where they live.

Durreshehwaar: “maa baap ko kaisy pata chal jata hai k unki aulad ko kis chez ki zarorat hai,wo kis chez k lye hath phela rahy hai”

Witness Karachi Rain

You know you are in Karachi when you get stuck in one such complicated traffic jams as soon as it starts raining ;) You know you are in Karachi when its a typical sunny day and then just two seconds later, the grey black clouds of rain cover the whole city presenting a scene of dusk when its still 12:00 in noon. You know you are in Karachi when Sun says goodbye to the people all of a sudden without a warning and the rainy clouds conquer the city with suffocation. You know you are a typical Karachi citizen if you know what this sudden suffocation with darkness at noon time indicates...MONSOON RAIN!! :D
Lets go out now...You know you are in Karachi when you see people dancing on roads while its raining cats and dogs. You know you are standing on a Karachi street or road when you see water coming up till your knees and you are a typical Karachi citizen if you enjoy this situation ;) You know you are in Karachi when you see almost every car on the road which has stopped working due to the increased amount of water due to rain on roads. You know you are in Karachi when you help the other person to push his car inorder to start it in the rain water ;) 

You know you are in Karachi when you do not get frightened of the thundering clouds and lightning

You are a typical Karachiite when you call such a dangerous rainfall as EPIC ;)
