Apna hai tau doosron ko kyun copy karta hai? Hai koi jawab iss sawaal ka?

Wow, has it really come down to this, Mobilink? You were once the leading mobile operator in Pakistan but (No More) after seeing your latest few ads which were copycat approach of ufone,I would like to ask simple questions:

where is the leadership?
What is UP with your advertising style?
Where is the uniqueness?
When will you decide what you want your communication to be like?

Within a year you swings from Aur sunao to No Samjhota to Jazz On Hai, and now Apna hai  made us confused about what message has been conveyed till now. One day you have us in near tears with an emotional apna hai song about the climb to fame and accomplishment of a local sports hero, then you try to get us all warm and fuzzy inside with very family oriented ads showing a father daughter and now after a span of almost a year you decide, hey lets be funny again with those two cheap funny chaps, only because they seem so blunt and seem like they are trying a bit too hard to make us laugh. But you know what we ARE doing? For Gods sake cant you at least TRY to be original? I just think youre becoming lame and confusing and you
need to stop give us peace of mind, and then maybe perhaps everyone else
will hopefully follow suit.

CEO Vs. Teacher: Interesting Dialogue.

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education.

He argued, 'What a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?'

He reminded the other dinner guests what they say about teachers: 'Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach.'

To emphasize his point he said to another guest; 'You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?'

Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, 'You want to know what I make?'

(She paused for a second, then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.
I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental."

You want to know what I make?' (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table.)

''I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math. They use their God-given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know in English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life."

(Bonnie paused one last time, then continued.)

"Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything,
I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant..."

You want to know what I make?


'What do you make, Mr. CEO?'

His jaw dropped, he went silent.

Nisaar teri galiyon k

Nisaar  teri  galiyo'n  k ae watan k jahan
Chli hai rasam ke koi naa sar utha k jiye

Jo   koi  chahnay  wala   twaf  ko   niklay
Nazar jhuka k chalay jism bcha k chaleay

کیا بیت گئی دیس پہ سیلاب کے ہاتھوں .. ..

کیسے کوئی اس کرب کو الفاظ میں ڈھالے

انساں بھی،فصلیں بھی،مو یشی بھی،مکاں بھی .. ..
ہر چیز ہے بپھرے ہوۓ پانی کے حوالے .. !!
