The ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 mania in full swing!

Suddenly all of those applications are alive on my facebook home feed! Zong’s Super Predictor! One Big Stadium! and I’m sure there are loads of more applications happening out there! Well cool! Though, being a Pakistani, Cricket is like an active gene in most of us. Getting cricket fans to participate in such games just arouses the cricket spirit more, plus there are prizes as incentives :p

The first match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is between India and Bangladesh, toss for which has been won by the Bengalis who have decided to BOWL first!

A tip from Super Predictor:

Bangladesh has won the toss and decided to bowl first. They want to take the early advantage of dew, also in last 12 matches team batting 2nd has won, consider it a tip for your predictions 🙂

& here’s the Sports Quote shared by One Big Stadium:

Most games are lost, not won. ~Casey Stengel

Enjoy the game! Participate! Let’s see who wins! 😉

Friday…

Not too much of a TGIF feelin’ today..

Here’s the friday song that was playin’ the entire day at my end:

Today is friday, it is my day to do what i want | Mama can tell me that i’m goin nowhere, i’m just a prisoner of my fate | Would you come along, bring me in | Would you come along, bring me in… Bring me in | Today is friday, it is my day to disappear | To kings and queens and make-believe and the demons in my head | Would you come along, bring me in | Would you come along, bring me in… Bring me in | If you were around in my sleep | If you could be found in my sleep | Give me a sign | Give me a sign… agar tum hotay khuabon main | agar tum mil jaao khuabon main | isharaaa dou… isharaaa dou! | Today is friday, it is my day to live a simple life | Put on my make-up, dress up in color | Maybe you might see me down here | Could you come along, bring me in | Would you come along, bring me in… Bring me in | If you were around in my sleep | If you could be found in my sleep | Give me a sign | Give me a sign… agar tum hotay khuabon main | agar tum mil jaao khuabon main | isharaaa dou | isharaaa dou! | Maybe we’ll walk into the rain | To ease what’s on my mind- You both hand in hand | And you’re living your life over again | Today is friday it is my day to do what i want | Mama can tell me i’m goin nowhere | I’m just a prisoner of my fate | Would you come along, bring me in | Could you come along, bring me in | Bring me in | If you were around in my sleep | If you could be found in my sleep | Give me a sign | Give me a sign… agar tum hotay khuabon main | agar tum mil jaao khuabon main | isharaaa dou | isharaaa dou! | Today is friday, it is my day to live a simple life | Put on my make-up, dress up in color | Maybe you might see me down here | Can you come along, bring me in | Will you come along, bring me in… Bring me in……………

 

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the song!

Friday- Goldspot

Leave Allah’s plans to Him..

I was watching a movie today.. hadn’t cried in a while.. my heart felt light. For a change, in the past 3 and a half weeks, my head didn’t seem to ache.. everything seemed quiet, and peaceful… At the end of the day, once I was done with my good-nites and sleep-tites, I just lay down thinking.. all that happens around us… most of the things that spontaneously happen and take our breath away, leaving an overjoyed stupid smile on our faces, with genuine happiness reflecting in the gleaming eyes, well most of these things are actually those which we don’t plan for- which only makes me realize, how much I detest planning. Number 1, most things don’t exactly go according to the plan; number 2, the excitement upon achieving the goal as planned is not as hot as that super cool feeling you get when achieving something that hadn’t exactly been planned out; number 3, I strongly believe, there’s a time for everything, which I also believe strongly negates the mere idea of planning! And number 4, planning requires more of a human’s brain to work, than the heart– for me, I would opt for the ♥ touch any given day.. any given time. Though more often than not, I’ve begun with worrying, for things which I later realized left me exhausted uselessly, mainly ‘coz they’d already been planned out by the One Who is the Greatest of Planners. I’m trying to be at peace with myself for now..

Reminds me of a quote by Omar Khayyám, the Phisopher of the World..

“Why ponder thus the future to foresee,
and jade thy brain to vain perplexity?
Cast off thy care, leave Allah’s plans to him –
He formed them all without consulting thee.”

Makes sense now, does it not? 🙂 hmmm…

If you’re lost, you can look, and you will find me– Time after time…

This is one of my favorite songs… I would like to dedicate it…….

 

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Caught up in circles confusion–
Is nothing new
Flashback–to warm nights–
Almost left behind
Suitcase of memories,
Time after–

Sometimes you picture me–
I’m walking too far ahead
You’re calling to me, I can’t hear
What you have said–
Then you say– go slow–
I’ve fallen behind–
The second hand unwinds

If you’re lost you can look, and you will find me
Time after time…

If you fall I will catch you, I’ll be waiting..
Time after time

If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time…
Time after time…

After your picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
Watching through windows–I’m wondering
If you’re okay
and you say go slow..
I’ve fallen behind
The drum beats out of time–

If you’re lost you can look, and you will find me– Time after time…
If you fall I will catch you, I’ll be waiting.. Time after time…

If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting… Time after time

Time after time…

Time after time…
