Current affairs, security issues and challenges, local and international politics, social, cultural and legal issues, sports (mostly cricket and tennis), astronomy and cosmology (to the extent of watching documentaries), music, movies and literature – everything interests me.

    Yeah right! Next you will tell us you lent Dali a hand in painting The persistance of memory. *raised eyebrow*

    Ayesha, I’ve listened so many times a song on ptv, sung by ‘malka-e-tarrannum’ ‘Kabhi kitabon main phool rakhna’.I think that should be a red rose but ‘aap ki kitab main yellow’ What does its logic?

    But I am planning to keep it for a while. There ain’t much to choose from. And actually in every theme some thing is missing. I like this one too much but if you notice the category and tags don’t appear under, above or on the side of the post.

    Ayesha – I had a room in my moms house – I loved it – kept it nice and clean – my room – and had colur theme in it – it was practice – when I got house of my own – I was already trained – I had issues cooking proper pakistani food – that was the real challange.

  28. July 16, 2008 10:08 am

    LOL – Rashid ji aap darr gaey – khoon sookh jaaey to insaan GGONGA ho hi jaata hai – Aapi ka danda – i like that – chalo parh to liya karo – khairiat ki khabar de diya kejiye please!

    I had watched it more than 50 times in one year when it was released. I had memorized its dialogues as we friends had a game of playing any of role(called by friends) any time at random. And I never got failed whenever I was challenged. {Raj: You son of a gun!}

  34. Ayesha permalink
    July 17, 2008 10:25 am

    I can’t tell how many times I have watched it. But what I know is that it is my all time favorite movie. And DDLJ made it to the Guniese Book of World Records as a longest running movie in the history of cinema.

    If I am not wrong it still runs in some theater in Mumbai (since it’s release – non stop), one show per day (matinee show) πŸ˜€

    I checked the settings in my cell phone. They are fine and still the problem hasn’t been solved 😦

  37. July 19, 2008 3:56 am

    I bet Rashid here is testing his Shahrukh Khan accent – please dont go shahrukh on me – I have had a crush on him since he came out – and he is 42 – right age for me too πŸ˜‰

    Hey Goonga, I wish you would use your name Rashid in here – Its such a nice name – use it!

    July 19, 2008 11:32 am

    I know Raj and Simran πŸ˜›

    But Darr is my second favorite… so I thought he might be testing KKKKK- Kiran

  41. July 21, 2008 7:15 am

    I was just testing configurations for N-Series which I mentioned elsewhere.

    Yes its Simran (Simi) & Raj and Guljeeta and chutki & O potchi, O koka, O bobi, O lola etc.

    KKKK-Kiran has been real controversy involving SRK, Amir Khan and KKKK-Karan.

    I recently came across your blog and was moved by your words and your story. I am writing from World Pulse Magazine, a media organization dedicated to broadcasting global issues through the eyes of women.

    I would like to invite you to share your story on our social networking newswire, PulseWire, for possible syndication in our upcoming online and print editions. A newly created group on PulseWire called the “Pakistan Cafe” provides a platform for the unheard voices of women leaders and changemakers from Pakistan. This group offers a collaborative and safe discussion forum for you to share your thoughts, ideas, struggles, and emotions surrounding Pakistan. We invite you to speak about the issues and obstacles women are facing in your community, and to share the solutions that are already underway, or that we can develop together.

    Our next print magazine, to be published in June, will include a Country Focus piece on Pakistan. We are looking to offer perspectives on the country that go beyond the image portrayed by mainstream media. By joining the Pakistan Cafe on PulseWire and posting a blog entry, your story has the chance to be included in our upcoming print issue. We welcome you to utilize this space to share whatever you’d likeβ€”be it your own portrait of Pakistan, your stories of struggle and conflict or your hopes and visions for the future of your country and people — with a supportive community of other women from Pakistan and across the globe.

    I sincerely hope you will accept this invitation to join PulseWire and make a post in the Pakistan Cafe. We encourage you to post something new, or something you’ve written in the past. Poetry, stories, opinion pieces, or just a simple introduction are encouraged! The idea is to truly provide a space for women to join hands across borders, and all opinions and experiences are welcome.

    To join this group, please visit and click “Join this group.”

    You will need to register an account on PulseWire to be able to participate. If you need help doing this, please let me know!

    And of course, I also encourage you to pass this invitation on to other friends, family, or colleague to spread the dialogue!

      I was simply bored of those nature based headers. I tried uploading a painting but it didn’t work so I instead uploaded this beautiful illustration by Jeremy.

      This is basically a desktop wallpaper. The concept, honestly, is not known to me. Let’s use our imagination and figure out. πŸ™‚ By looking at the picture I feel the boy and the girl are about to start a new life but separately.

    Hey Ayesha,

    hope you are doing well. for past some months i am trying to start Peshawar Metblog and put Peshawar on the metblogs group. but, facing lack of regular contributors from the city.
    as your r a Peshawari and have been quite active blogger, so i wanna ask u to join this group @
    and could also invite ur bloggers friends from the city to join the group and start posting abt city, so that we could put Peshawar on the metblogs network.

      Thank you for stopping by. There are quite a few bloggers from Peshawar. I think being a regular, female blogger from this city gives me a little edge πŸ™‚

    Ayesha! It’s really a very interesting blog.. U have got a great taste and habits.. Here I should really mention my heartiest feelings about Peshawar, the city where though I lived only two years of my life at the start of my career when I was posted there after graduating from Punjab University Lahore. I really loved my old memories of those two years I spent at that Lovely city of Roses, Great Peshawar. I really enjoyed my time and I used to go Peshawar University, Islamia College and The British Council and French Cultural Centre at University Town. I am very sad about recent bombing going out in this great city. I really feel sorry for the city and the peace living citizens of Peshawar and let me tell U that we the people of Punjab and other provinces are with U in this time of sorrow and grief. May your great city finds its old peace and calm. Let us pray for that….


    • November 24, 2009 5:45 pm

      Thank you for the kind words. Things have been changed quite a lot though all the places you mentioned still exist but common people aren’t allowed to visit.

      Amen to your prayers for peace.

    ok ok calm down calm down…. πŸ™‚

    Posts should have back up copies too – note to wordpress – please leave room for a genuine mistake.

    I have made new one from scratch. You know me. I can redo anything.

    • February 24, 2010 9:35 am

      Is my ethnicity important for you or one should see whether a person is good or not?

      Oh well, even good or bad shouldn’t be the criteria even. As Oscar Wilde put it:

      “It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious”

      Welcome to my blog! πŸ˜€

  136. February 24, 2010 12:50 pm

    heh! Ethnicity, definitely, takes a backstage =D. It’s just very “exhilarating” to see another pathan out there πŸ˜€

    Oscar Wilde is too plain awesome ;).

    Thanks! :D. I’m going to .. erm.. stalk you on your blog regularly now (not because you are a pathan though :P. )

    Hi Ayesha,

    Very nice effort at your blog – enjoyed reading it. I am a Masters student from School of Oriental and African Studies and I am actually doing my thesis on studying blogs written around the cases of Dr. Afia (and the girl-flogging video and news around it that came up from Swat). Your blogs popped up when I put in Dr. Afia in wordpress tags search engine. I was wondering, if you have come across other “bloggers” writing about Dr. Afia or if you wrote more stuff about her. I would very much like to include these in my thesis studies. Was wondering if you would be so kind to give me some leads if you have an idea.

    Thank you so much and look forward to hearing from you,

    • May 8, 2010 7:28 am

      You can check out Tazeen’s blog. The link is in ‘I like to read’ on the right side bar of my blog. She has written some blogs about her but she holds a totally different view.
