The message above was tweeted by Boona Mohammed back in February 2012 and I loved it! I re-tweeted it and posted it on my networks to share.. 2 days ago, I came across a colleague of mine and there was that word mentioned during the conversation and I very reluctantly sunk deep… and deeper into that thought which I had with utmost difficulty managed to lose track of! And yet, when the word was brought up again, I couldn’t resist indulging back into those disturbing thoughts.
Anger. One word short of Danger. So it is!
Anger blocks out the human sense and takes over the mind and heart and keeps spreading throughout till it eventually takes over the whole body, and once that happens, one has the power and capacity to hurt another.. with words, actions or even physically. Anger is dangerous on more levels if one realizes that not just others, it makes one sensitive and susceptible to getting hurt with the same force as well. The truth is that at the end of the day, anger does cool off. Whatever that takes over the body and soul of the being as anger, does bid adieu. Anger carves itself a place to adjust.. and when it departs, it leaves an empty space.. a hole in the soul.. and all one is left with is remorse of the much conveniently questionable .. “what ifs?”
Till about a couple of years back, I did not know I had so much anger within me. When I am angry, I later realize how different I have become from the person I was.. it is because I have started to let worldly things, factors and people effect me. I have come across many angry people in the course of my existence that make me wonder if it is even remotely possible for one to be free of anger.. only if we ponder and question ourselves in isolation, is there really such a thing as an angry person? Do we really get angry and do hurtful things to others and ourselves with an evil intention? Well you’d be judged anyway but that’s a different story 🙂 And we gradually begin to comprehend the supporting factors to this emotion that we call anger. We realize that all of us, each and every one of us is fighting a battle of sorts; if only there were a way to stop ourselves being taken over by such a negative emotion..
I don’t know which blog the following text belongs to, but it made complete sense..
There is so much that we are and so much that we aspire to be, that it is a shame for us to define ourselves by the very emotion that smothers our voices and only extends hurt, fear, and pain to others, especially our spouses and children.
There is a reason why the wise remind us time and again: ghussa haram hai.. (Anger is forbidden)..

Was watching these pics from my last few days at CC.. I knew I’d miss my team! Got my hands on the HOT office camera n made memories with my team and some friends! For a change I was glad we were stayin’ back after work hours! 😀
And so, here it is.. this was my 2nd last evenin’ at Creative Chaos!
Miss you guys!
My Team: <Muhammad Furqan, Muhammad Faizan Anwer, Alishah Chagani>

Maybe it’s got somethin’ to do with spiritualism… urm.. I dunno.. well it does seem like there’s a connection… It did seem ambiguous when the mind dismissed the idea with the possible inference; smiling and convincing yourself that things’re not TOO bad when in fact they aren’t TOO great, wouldn’t that be a case of 1st degree deception? eeeeee!! sounds almost like a murder! And so I shook my head to let go of the negative thought!
I couldn’t help laughing when a friend pointed why it isn’t possible to smile all the time.. the jaw would start hurting for one, another one pointed out! 😛 well, the point could be taken into consideration.
It was one of those days when I was lost and blue. Everything seemed normal otherwise.. with the exception of something.. important missing.. Only the kids’ excited chitter chatter in the playground kept me from breaking up..
I lay down in the dark with my eyes closed; sweet memories rushing in all at once.. yanked harshly almost immediately by realizations of the loneliness that I felt then… I must admit it took a hell lot of effort to pull in thoughts of better times.. my heart winning out on all the reasonings little by little, as I felt my mind surrendering in vain.. and that’s when I noticed that my lips had automatically curved into a smile..
That a smile does increase a couple of ounces on the amount of calmness contained within one… was all I could conclude with by the time I was all set to make my way back home..
and it sure does help not to let anger take over a bad feelin’ n make things worse..
Instead, the realization of accepting things, people, their natures, their mood swings, circumstances.. n in a nutshell, the world in its entirety… just as it is… comes to life… as time passes… at a *very* slow pace…
well I guess… 🙂
n yeah, the ticks go on…
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!
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…
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,
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…
