Was YouTube around in 1968?

Dad says that back in 70’s he had had visualized mobile & cellular stuff. Considering how imaginative he is (definitely in top 10) i see no reason why i shouldn’t believe him. Bulk of it comes from his profession but even if he would have been in any other field that won’t make any difference. He is the Alexander in my world. Considering his times 50 years back & that too from where he was born the machine achieved more than it was expected.

I have to say all of this while i read this article about YOUTUBE that shows how eager a human is to be known/famous. Here we go :

Take me away

As always when the mood is hibernated thoughts swril within memories my only resort is the music i am related to :

Shining light
Another day turns into night
Eternal fire
Waited all my life – janatay hoo jub bhi mujya
Take me away – choti say chaoti cheez bhi pasand ati thi
A million miles away from here – tu hamisha mari mom or mari sis
Take me away – us main koi na koi nokhs zaroor nikla
Find a place for you and me – or phir mujhya kabhi bhi
You’re taking me higher – us cheez ho hasilkarnay nahi diya
High as I could be – or main her dafa apni khowaeshat
Take me away – apany hi dil main chupa lati
Forever you and me – or haista hasita apnay app ko
Take me away – apnay under hi kaid kardiya
Tears I cried – ab jub kay apni sari zindagi sirf
Kept them all inside – tumharay sath guzarnay ki khowaesh
I needed time – or kia kia kharabiyan
To make up my mind – un ko nazar ain ge tum main
[To make up my mind]

Take me away

Koi jo mila to mujhe aisa lagta tha

Koi jo mila to mujhe aisa lagta tha
jaise meri saari duniya main geeton ki rut
aur rangon ki barkha hai khushbu ki aakdhi hai
mahki hui si ab saari fizaayen hain
bahki hui si ab saari hawaayen hain
khoyi hui si ab saari dishaayen hain
badli hui se ab saari adaayen hain
jaagi ummengein hain, dhadak raha ahi dil
sapnon main toofaan hain, hoton pe nagme hain
aakhon main sapne hain, sapnon main beete hue
se vo saare lamhe hain
jab koi aaya tha, jazron pe chhaya tha
dil main samaya tha, kaise main bataun tumhe
kaise use paaya tha, pyaar ke chehre pe bikhri jo julphen
to aisa lagta tha jaise kohre ke peechhe
ek os main dhula hua phool khila hai jaise
badal main ik chaand chhupa hai
aur jhaank raha hai jaise raat ke parde main

What you can do in One Million dollars ?

SAM passed on this link over MSN messenger. Frankly, the guy who bought this for a million is a jerk & also is the one who asked for that amount. Read this one but more importantly read the comments & figure out yourself what users think about this one million dollar laptop. Especially check the 7th comment by Allan. I have copied the page here in case the original link goes down.

What Does a One Million Dollar Laptop Look Like?

We’ve seen plenty of expensive gizmos in our days, most of which are not due to advanced electronics, but this is one of the very few times we’ve had to get into seven figures. I’m not exactly sure what it is about this laptop from Luvaglio London that makes it so special, but the current asking price on the computing creation is a cool $1 million.

All about interests

Came across this article in Daily Times. It was about the CJP issue & i was impressed by the way the writer has conveyed his views in rather a blog-impression style. What impressed me more was his simple way of presentation about a complex political issue without involving too much but yet rather touching few good points. I strongly suggest you to just read BOLD text in the end if in case you don’t have time at hand.

THE OTHER COLUMN: All about interests —Ejaz Haider

Before you bracket me with the venerable beards for not sticking to my word, given publicly, I may take the presumption of apportioning the blame for my reappearance on all the friends who wrote and chided me on my decision, out of which Khalid Hasan stands out, and who I cannot refuse

I was in Islamabad and sitting with friend Sherry Rehman when news came that the Chief Justice of Pakistan had been sacked. Suddenly, there was much activity; phones began ringing (not mine), there was excitement all round and, as is the wont of Isloo-ites, much speculation. Scenarios were constructed — this is going to become big; the regime has shot itself in the foot finally; this is the beginning of the end and so on, the motif being that the action would go down in history as the equivalent of the Boston Tea Party.

I was watching the excitement, sipping my tea and taking deep drags on my cigarette, almost as an outsider. Someone invited my opinion.

Valid for Pakistani team too

Australian Cricket logoSo finally India is out of the World cup too but instead of saying anything on it i would like to talk on a more permanent issue right now but not in Indian context, rather in Pakistani context as the problem that has taken over both the sides is quite similar & instead of giving my own view i rather will refer you to this article by Amit Varma that is very much valid for our team too. While my thoughts on all of this is included in extended part following is the crux of the whole point that i strongly want to emphasis on & you should read, just in case if you are in a hurry.

Sachin bold

” There is a crucial difference to be noted between India and Australia, though. Australia have enormous bench strength. They could fire Healy because Adam Gilchrist waited, sack Michael Slater because Justin Langer was around, let Mark Waugh go because Damien Martyn had been kept out for too long. Outstanding talents like Stuart Law and Matthew Elliott and Stuart MacGill, who would have played a hundred Tests in any other country, spent ages waiting in the sidelines. If Mike Hussey and Brad Hodge played for any other team, they’d be international cricket veterans by now. ”

KMB post

Posted this one ova KMB blog. As evident i had to do lot of hard work, especially with the way internet was slowing down & on few occasions almost died. ———

https://i1.wp.com/karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/03/march/mb/SC-karachi_a-thumb.jpgThe so labeled “more Muslim than Muslims” has taken oath as ACJP in Karachi & with it little focus shifted to Khi too & possibly last for a week considering how eager media is to cover its every bit with opportunities always in abundance (1,2,3). On other front Qazi, as “they always do” finally dragged religion successfully into this.
May God give him some sense.

While everyone, including the silent Altaf bhai has finally spoken too, its now media’s turn to play on its home ground & discuss after benefiting perfectly. So today’s main papers (DAWN, NEWS, JANG & DT) had enough “stuff” on main pages. Cowasjee had, as always, a good article today titled “Straaaaawberry jam” recalling a story about his meeting with president Zia just to free his “secured” tiffin basket (no no , it didn’t have Zia’s secrets, was just a lunch his wife had for him) & in actual sense summarizing as a whole the Army Mentality thus possibly concluding that it’s the Army behind this game & not the poor PM (& also sympathy qualified goats Durrani & W. Zafar).

Its entertainment time

After poetry, my mood is back to normal now. As i was checking orkut an annonymous girl had a message with a link to Chris Angel following which i came across David Copperfield . Then i had a good vid from mun’s profile. Its catchy tune made me watch it full & search its lyrics too (pasted in the end). Check out all of it :

My way of Hibernation & Tranquillity

Recently i visited my orkut profile after a long time (a long long time) & decided to use the new feature of uploading vids in profile. Frankly i liked it very much. Thanks Orkut Büyükkökten. I just cannot forget the days (mostly nights frankly) when i used to glue to orkut like UHU. Those were the days, the honest days when all the users had credible profiles with all the personal info. Having family pics was a normal thing then. I wish i could go back in time……. Well more on my orkut days later…but my initial love for Orkut could be judged by the fact that out of 8000+ scraps , around 7000 something were posted before December 2004, around 2.5 years back, when i decided to quit the nashaa….

But why am i actually recalling those Golden ( yeah !! you can afford a laugh here, its meaning confined to me only, i forgive you)  days is to keep myself make up for the loss of not being able to join KMB meetup & most importantly after having a fight with BoSS i felt like my mood screwed up badly, therefore a requirement of either music or poetry etc.

So let me share some poetry with you . . . .

KMB meetup

The guys at KMB are planning to have a meet-up again & I, as unlucky as I am at times enjoying fever, sitting in office trying to make a check list that is more a shit list then anything else, a torture for any Shift In charge.

I am so desperate to meet the fellows frankly, not because I haven’t met them before but because its been sometime now since I am missing the opportunity to meet this gang of some good souls, who if nothing else are definitely a good source of information (or probably a time pass for few others) in blog world, trying their best to post good topics covering many issues related to my love, Karachi. I must say the team is a good one & the best thing is, its growing. And this meet up was to basically celebrate that growth too. O my GOD that means I shall be paying for the party too? O no, but frankly it’s worth it, honestly.

Life recently has become an STD frankly, thanks to few those who affect me, so any opportunity to live it to full should not be wasted !!!

Reading him again

 I was surfing here & there & am reading him again. A good way to make sure i am unaware of this nazla +light fever +halki khansi. As always he does, he is opening my mind with his knowledge & the power to put it perfectly in words . . . so you read it too. . .

Teaching Science Badly – and Well

Pervez Hoodbhoy
March 1, 2007

A normal, intelligent and curious child – particularly if he or she is Pakistani – must think science to be the most wretched of subjects at school. A few lucky exceptions aside, this is the fate of most. Very few children will actually encounter science in a manner that they enjoy and deserve.

This is sad. Science is taught in schools for a good enough reason – we owe the modern world to it. The prosperity or poverty of nations, and of individuals, has become contingent upon their ability to understand and control science. Take its products away, and we would be back in the dark days of our ancestors when a child at birth was more likely to die than live.

But there is another excellent reason to study science. Far from being a cold and soulless collection of facts, it is delicately beautiful with principles that are amazingly simple and precise. Yet, they are also incredibly powerful and universal. Exactly the same laws explain why stars shine, the blue of the sky, the beating of the human heart, and the flight of birds. Science grips the imagination and fascinates endlessly. It has certainly engaged me for most of my life and I, like most scientists, will never tire of it.

If it is so wonderful, why then do only a few students in Pakistan want to become scientists? The problem is the prevalence of false notions of science. This, in turn, leads to teaching that ranges from bad to terrible, and thus to students who despise what they must study and memorize.
