Spinning Wheel is ruling over the Crescent


Just have an eye around; people are so distracted that the entertainment is more becoming a hunger than just a past-time. People want to be entertained even at the cost of their religion, values, ethics, culture and country. In the society we are living the main source of entertainment is Indian Media: Indian movies, Indian dramas, and Indian songs. Be aware of the fact that how badly it portraits Islam, Muslims and Pakistan, we are giving business to them. Isn’t it like we are paying for being insulted?

Where the dignity, culture, ethics and religion gone when people put on posters of actress wearing mini-skirts just to market the cinema’s latest show – a movie just released on the other side of border. In the lust of entertainment are we becoming shame-proof? That we are demanding more and more of such supplies which are insulting and getting the wrong impression about our believes and humiliating our values.

Agreed! Completely agreed with the argument that our film industry is lacking behind in the quality of movies. But, is the movies only source of entertainment or the Indian media is only entertainment provider? We have a very good and well establish television industry which aired better quality stuff as compare to the material coming from that side of border.

Isn’t it feels heartbreaking that a kid studying in pre-school or primary school knows nothing about august 14, March 23, Shawal 1 or Rabi –ul- Awwal 12, but know each and everything about January 26, Diwali and Holi, Not know the name of founder of Pakistan but have knowledge about ever idol lord. What we are teaching to our youth? These are not our values.

Our forefathers have fought for more than a century to let the world know that we – the Muslims – have an identity of our own. We have our own ethical values we have our own believes. This identity is not supposed to be lost that easily. Do not let anyone take over your identity. Do not let other values to forget your own. Don’t let the ache for entertainment take over your ethical values.

“It is good to be helpful and kindly, but don’t give yourself to be melted into candle grease for the benefit of the tallow trade.”   – George Eliot.

Econo-Lovely Candle Light Dinner


Candle light dinner, consider as most romantic idea to have twilight with the one you love. That is a past now that you have a pay a big amount to have a romantic diner or you have to drive more than an hour to reach that restaurant. Now, all you have to do is just cook your favourite food, set the table and the lights will be turned off exactly on the time of time dinner. Power supply corporations even don’t let you to bother you to get up from your place to make the moment most. They also let you disappoint about the timings the of power breakdown.

We must be thankful to our power supply corporations that they made poor have a joy of candle light dinner. Although it was scorching summer nights, but they made their efforts to let poor enjoy the delightful diner which is considered only as rich’s lavishness. Where in the whole world else the this piece of land we are going to find such a ‘caring’ and ‘concerned’ ministries who believe in equals rights for all and Who made such luxuries affordable for all.

In spite of all the blame, bad remarks, protests and harsh situations they – the ministries – are on their way to keep the love alive between people in an ‘economical’ way. Hats off and thumbs up to them.

P.S.  electricity bills are another issue…  🙂

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again… :) – George Carlin


This is a master piece. If you have not read it take the time to read it now. If you have read it take time to read it again! GEORGE CARLIN (His wife recently died….)

Isn’t it amazing that George Carlin – comedian of the 70’s and 80’s – could write something so very eloquent…and so very appropriate.

A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways , but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.

A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it.

An embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

If you don’t send this to other people….Who cares?

-George Carlin
