Sitting back and rewinding the pages of my memories I recall a person who's more than a person to me. Someone who is more like a "comfort zone". That's who you were dad, that's who you have always been! One of my earliest memories was waking up early in the morning when no one else was awake and talking to you because you were an early riser too and I picked up little habits from you: rising early, punctuality etc.I remember your first angioplasty when I was perhaps three years old and everyone...

One of the leading causes of infertility in otherwise young and healthy females is PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). Women with PCOS suffer at various levels in life when compared to the lives of their friends who don’t have it. Here are a few instances:- This friend of mine was very slim in comparison to me but a few months later I visited her and found out that she had put on some 10 kilos which was very surprising since she was one of those people who had a very fast metabolism and could eat...

Sometimes I just want to be happy. Feel nothing but happiness. Yes I am aware that there can be such moments of mere, sheer joy for I certainly have lived through them but they haven't been up for some time now. I feel desperate: desperate for happiness. I try building little pools of joy for myself. I try imagining happy things. I try hanging out more. I try going to my happy places. I try reliving memories. I try the peace that nature brings at the crack of dawn. But it doesn't help. I started...


Dear best friend, Five years from now I will have finished my educational career and we'll have split ways. A few months into your job you'll have too many other worries to keep a check on me. And then you'll have a life where certainly I'll have no place. You'll be busy and so will I. Maybe after years, after months, on certain occasions you will miss me or my presence but you will have people who will fill that void better than I ever did, or will, or could. And years after that I'll perhaps b...


Don’t choke yourself with dark thoughts

Over here in the East how we handle life’s challenges hasn't exactly been the centre of buzz as it has in the West. Even so I, as a medical student in one of the most prestigious institutions of Pakistan, have noticed people going through the scenario I am about to describe: 'Some days I feel like choking myself. It's hard, life. It's so hard that I wonder how I have made it through up until now. Lacking motivation and lagging behind in work is all that it is. Add to this a crumb...

I am me. This is all I have got. I know my talents and I know my weaknesses. I know how my brain works and how my heart yearns. I know when to let my mind take over and when it's time for my passions to drive me. I do not waste my talents. I utilize them. I am young and I know that I can get things done in lesser time so I spend just the right amount of time on my responsibilities. The rest goes to enjoying. What is it that I enjoy? I enjoy the fact that I am me. But more...

We all want to be heroes. The protege of people's lives. We fear dying in anonymity. Why is it that we can't stand being ordinary even though being ordinary has its perks? Not everybody can afford fame. Not everybody can stand fame. For some to be talked about, the rest must become talkers. For some to be the subject of rumours, the rest must be the ones spreading them. Yet, why is it that those in the limelight are in the end, the most depressed. The ordinary ones migh...

Have you ever wondered how Muslim women ever bear with layers of covering that they are made to wear? How hard it must be for them to be so careful as to not expose their body parts? How do they manage to actually go anywhere or do anything with the dangling "abayas"? However, being a hijabi, I can assure you it is not so! Islam does not impose things on us that we can't follow. We are not oppressed. This is our choice! From behind the veil, life is different. Let's take a glim...

If I were to explain my life in a few words, how would it go? "A few years after I was born, I was sent to school where I spent all my teenage years until university and college came along." Yes, this has been my life! Pretty much! But all that was for a BRIGHT future, wasn’t it? Yeah sure! Are you promising me a future after I get aching joints and sciatica? I'd rather say “No thanks!” Sometimes I feel that the social hierarchy we have built is far too restraining. I d...
