Dead End at Faislabad…

Surely that’s how everyone must have felt watching the final day of the second test match. But I don’t agree with everyone that it was Lahore Part II. Did we not get some action on Day 3 Session 2 and what about the last day when Pakistan suddenly collapsed to 490 all out? Not enough… Continue reading »

Patriotic Fervor …

I eagerly wait for these two days in the year; 15th August which marks our Independence Day and 26th January, which marks our Republic Day. For the obvious reasons, they mark the most important events in my country’s history. They remind us of the great freedom struggle and the freedom fighters who laid down their… Continue reading »

Lahore Fiasco…

I never thought that post 6 centuries in a match I would be bored to death. Of all the dull draws witnessed this should take cake! Even Virender Sehwag’s blitzkrieg did not pull the match from the depths of boredom it plummeted to. Let me get this right; ever since I started watching this game… Continue reading »

I have finally come to the conclusion why we were the privileged ones.… Continue reading »

Dubai Experience– Shop Till You Drop!

After a week’s trip to the city of shopping fantasies I have come to the conclusion that even a lifetime won’t be enough to look around each and every shop in Dubai. Dubai is famous for its malls which are really huge. I was amazed at their size. The smallest of them were huge. Sounds… Continue reading »

WIs were an easy target but it’s no mean feat to repeat 2 centuries in both the innings of a match in space of 6 matches. To be the first ever cricketer in history… Continue reading »

Talk to Me…

From the Fridge Magnets I picked up in Lifestyle at Centrepoint, Dubai: For my husband: Love conquers everything, even snoring So many men, none as good as mine When I count my blessings, I count you twice For myself: Women who seek equality with men are not setting high standards for themselves For my mumma:… Continue reading »

Give a Thought-7?

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out There are three sides to any argument: your side, my side and the right side Where there is a will there are five hundred relatives I could not repair your brakes so I made your horn louder The brain is a wonderful… Continue reading »

Dubai Experience– The Desert Safari

It’s tough when you land in a country known for its shopping experience for only a week. It’s great when your husband and relatives make all the days count so that you take back home some amazing experience. Last week was one of those times. I traveled abroad for my second trip after 16 years.… Continue reading »
