Baat naheen ho paati

Guzar auqaat naheen ho paati
Din say ab raat naheen ho paati

Sari duniya main bus ik tum say hee
Ab mulaqat naheen ho paati

Jo dharakti hay merey dil main kaheen
Ik wohee baat naheen ho paati

Jama karta hoon sar-e-chasham bohat
Phir bhi barsaat naheen ho paati

Lab Pe Aati Hai Dua Banke Tamanna Meri

Lab Pe Aati Hay Dua Banke Tamanna Meri
– Allama Iqbal

Lab pe aati hai dua banke tamanna meri
Zindagi shama ki surat ho khudaya meri

Door duniya ka mere dam se andhera ho jaaye
Har jagah mere chamakne se ujaala ho jaaye

Ho mere dam se yoon hi mere watan ki zeenat
Jis tarah phool se hoti hai chaman ki zeenat

Zindagi ho meri parwaane ki surat ya rab
Ilm ki shama se ho mujhko mohabbat ya rab

Ho mera kaam garibon ki himaayat karna
Dard-mandon se zaiifon se mohabbat karna

Mere Allah buraai se bachaanaa mujhko
Nek jo raah ho us raah pe chalaanaa mujhko

شائد ہر انسان کی زندگی میں کبھی نا کبھی ایک وقت ایسا آتا ہے، جب اُسّے احساس ہوتا ہے کہ اسکی یادّاشت میں موجود سینکڑوں چہروں میں سے ایک چہرہ ایسا بھی ہے جو اس کو بند آنکھوں سے بھی نظر آتا ہے۔ جو اسوقت بھی قریب نظر آتا ہے جب وہ چہرہ درحقیقت اس سے دور ہو۔ ایک چہرہ جو اسکی گہری نیند کی تاریکی کو بھی چیر کے خوابوں کے پردے پر نظر آتا ہے۔

کچھ لوگوں کی خواہش ہوتی ہے کہ یہ چہرہ آنکھہ کھولنے پر بھی ان کے سامنے ہو۔ ان کے نذدیک ہو۔ اور انہیں اتنی ہی محبت سے دیکھہ رہا ہو جتنی محبت سے وہ اس چہرے کے بارے میں سوچ رہے تھے۔

اِس کے برعکس کچھ لوگ ایسے بھی ہیں جن کے لئے سب سے اہم بس یہ ہوتا ہے کہ یہ چہرہ  جہاں بھی ہو، ان کے پاس ان سے دور، نیند میں ہو یا بیدار، بس خوش ہو۔ بہت خوش ہو۔ اس سے زیادہ نہ تو وہ کچھہ چاہتے ہیں، نا ہی اس سے زیادہ کی کبھی دعا کرتے ہیں۔

مجھے نہیں پتا کے ان دونوں میں سے کون سے لوگ زیادہ بہتر ہیں، وہ جو بس اس چہرے کو خوش دیکھنا چاہتے ہیں، یا وہ جو اس چہرے کو صرف اپنے ساتھہ خوش دیکھنا چاہتے ہیں۔

Pakistan to require premarital blood screening

No Comments

* Draft of law suggests Rs 50,000-100,000 fine, 6 month-one year jail for violators
By Afnan Khan

LAHORE: The National Assembly may soon introduce legislation regarding pre-marital blood screening to control the spread of HIV/AIDS, Thalassemia, Hepatitis and other diseases that are transmitted through genetic abnormalities; blood transmission; and sexual relations, sources within the National Assembly said on Tuesday

They said the government would impose stern punishment to enforce the law, which would be binding on every Pakistani couple The punishments would range from a fine of Rs 50,000 to Rs 100,000; six months to a year’s imprisonment; or both Parliament is also planning on adding a provision to the law to collect the medical history of all Pakistanis deported from foreign countries, especially the Middle East, upon their arrival at airports The sources said this was necessary as many people are deported from Middle Eastern countries after being found positive for HIV, hepatitis C, etc Such people rarely inform the government or their families of these conditions to escape stigma and can thus spread the infections, they added

The parliamentary sources said the law would be implemented through the thousands of basic health units (BHUs) functioning throughout the country They said the officials working in these BHUs to keep a check on people violating the law

The Standing Committee for Health in the National Assembly is due to meet today (Wednesday) to discuss the final timetable for placement of the bill before parliament and conduct a final debate on its pros and cons According to committee Chairman Yasmeen Rehman, they would also discuss the issue of spurious drugs; shortage of life-saving medicine; and the high prices of medicines being sold by multinational companies

She told Daily Times the committee had already drawn up the outline and major clauses of pre-marital blood screening law She said passage of this law would ensure the safety of future generations from several deadly diseases

Iran Claims It Has Made World’s Most Powerful Natural Gas Car

The Middle East’s largest automaker has unveiled a four-door sedan, claiming its engine is the world’s most powerful run by natural gas It’s a significant development in a country that has converted more than 250,000 cars to run on the stuff

The company, Iran Khodro, says the turbocharged engine in the Samand Soren ELX produces 150 horsepower, 37 more than the CNG-powered Honda Civic GX and just four short of the gasoline-burning four-cylinder Toyota Camry

Iran Khodro unveiled the car Saturday in Tehran, and the Tehran Times says it was developed “under the intellectual property of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” which explains why there was a picture of the Ayatollah looking over the car

Company CEO Manouchehr Manteqi says the car meets Euro IV emissions standards and adds, “its nominal power will not decline even at the height of 2,000 meters above sea level” That’s 6,561 feet for the metrically challenged, and it’s significant because Tehran, like Denver, is located about 5,000 feet above sea level

Manteqi didn’t offer any other details on the car, but the Samand LX uses a 17-liter four-cylinder that produces 100 horsepower It does 0 to 62 mph in 119 seconds and tops out at 115 mph

Iran Khodro is partially owned by the government, and it has a joint venture with Peugeot to build the Logan econobox (sold in Iran as the Tondar 90) and the 206 compact and 405 sedan Although the global auto industry is slumping, Iran Khodro plans to ramp up production and ease its dependence on foreign suppliers, according to Reuters

Tehran, a city of 12 million people, has long been plagued by pollution That’s changed in recent years as the city has adopted natural gas buses, forced taxis to convert to CNG and taken decrepit old cars off the road More than 250,000 cars have been converted to natural gas since 2004, according to the Los Angeles Times

The boy so set on getting to Cambridge he got 22 A-levels

1 Comment

One ambition was fixed in Ali Moeen Nawazish’s mind as he made his way through school in Pakistan He wanted to win a place at Cambridge

Sitting seven A-levels might easily have done the trick, even though he had started to study some of the subjects only three days before the exam

But he was determined to get some good grades So he sat another three, and three more Then another nine Just in case, he took a couple of AS levels along the way

Qualified success: Ali Moeen Nawazish

The result? The remarkable young student, who modestly explains he has ‘quite a thirst for knowledge’, secured 22 A grades, one B and a C

When he filled out his university application forms at home in Rawalpindi there was barely enough space to list his qualifications

His Cambridge dream came true four months ago when he embarked on a computer science degree course at Trinity Hall Now he is due to win another place – in the Guinness Book of Records

Yesterday Ali, 18, explained, perhaps superfluously, that he rather enjoys hard work He’s got even more qualifications in his sights to fulfil another ambition

‘I’m doing my current degree because I love it,’ he said ‘But what I want to do for the rest of my life is to be a doctor, so I hope to go on to study medicine’

Ali, who speaks Urdu, English and Punjabi, sat all the exams within 12 months at Rawalpindi’s Roots College International His entry was organised through accredited boards Ed-Excel and Cambridge International Examinations

Ali also achieved a top score in the US admissions test and was accepted by most Ivy League institutions, including Harvard and Yale Apart from core science subjects he is almost entirely self taught He studied for up to 12 hours a day, using energy drinks to help concentrate

The 18 year-old boy genius took the long list of exams within 12-months netting himself 22 A grades, one B and one C

He still managed to keep up his leisure pursuits, however, playing the guitar, cricket and table tennis, and editing his school newspaper He even found time for a trip to America to attend a Harvard leadership course

But it wasn’t always like that

Ali’s incredible talent began to emerge only at the age of 15 He was a chubby boy and rather solitary and many of his early results were mediocre

He said: ‘Then one day it all clicked I needed to prove to myself, and to others, that I could do it’ At O-level – still an internationally recognised qualification – he got nine A grades

Then came the A-levels His mother Nisar Malik, 48, father Zaka Ullah, 51, both doctors, though worried about his workload, were very supportive ‘They always said that if I was happy, they were happy,’ he said ‘Now they love the fact that I’ve done so well’

So just how does he manage to achieve so much? One teacher described him as having ‘a mind like a scanner’ but Ali says he does not have a photographic memory

He simply enjoys learning ‘The way I work is by spending ten minutes on one subject, then switching to another, then another It’s a bit haphazard but it works’

He retained the knowledge by linking facts to funny anecdotes he invented, and by reading around the subjects

Hardest part was the exams, which he described as ‘a mental endurance battle’ For two weeks he had a minimum of four every day, sometimes from 8am to midnight to avoid timetable clashes

Dr Nick Bampos, senior tutor at Trinity Hall, said the first time he and his colleagues saw Ali’s application they found it hard to believe

Dr Bampos said: ‘But not only is he really bright, he is really charming He might be a computer scientist but he shatters all the stereotypes We’re delighted to have him’
