EFFECT OF FASTING ON A WORKING INDIVIDUAL
We all know that Fasting in the month of Ramadan has a multitude of benefits regarding physical, spiritual, and mental benefits. Without undermining the benefits, I will lay my focus on the effect Fasting has on a working individual. So let’s start.
The first effect Fasting has on a working individual is the impossibility to maintain a balance between work and personal life. Still, people manage without complaining as it is God who will reward them for this virtue.
Secondly, while Fasting, it is very difficult to write about anything. It is like all ideas are in the state of fasting. It took me nearly 2 hours to get here at this point.
The third effect that Fasting has on an individual is that after a certain time of the day, the mind fails to even think about what one wants to say. That is the time when one only reverts to solitude and thinks about what is expected from him as a believer.
Fifthly, the effects may vary from person to person depending on the number of responsibilities a person has to perform. Some may experience nothing at all but most may.
Sixth, Fasting takes us to greater levels of self-exploration and to understand the whole concept of Fast. People may interpret fast according to their culture and religion but there is a need of going beyond basic interpretations and understand the manifold benefits.
And Lastly, one needs to go through these effects only to be more grateful to what God Almighty has given us in terms of blessings. As an individual, I will thank Almighty for allowing me to observe fast and observe myself and let others know the effects it has on a working, responsible individual.
There is nothing wrong with accepting what you cannot do while fasting. Focus on what you can do and make the best of that time. That is the true essence of fasting. Think about it.
Until next time stay safe and healthy.
THE BLAME GAME
UPCLOSE AND PERSONAL
Recently, I have been going through a lot of turmoil regarding the online classes and the problems at hand. Today, I aim at discussing these problems, the Blame Game, and the suffering party. So let’s start.
The foremost problem that students are facing online is regarding I.T issues. Even the most competent lot has failed to understand basic issues related to I.T; let alone the teachers.
How hard is it to turn on a simple computer and apply the appropriate software to the system? What are the so-called big systems installed in school doing in this regard except blaming each other regarding the responsibility?
The second problem that students are facing online is the lack of delivery regarding lessons. I won’t deny the fact that people who have been teaching all their life face to face find this mode of delivery rather difficult but trust me guys it’s not that difficult. You just need to get the hang of it. There is a way to everything if one has the will to do it.
Our children have proved this by grasping the new modes then why can’t the deliverers do the same. There is no insult to learning something new. At the age of 43, I am learning each day from my children, surroundings, and like-minded people. So can you.
The third problem that students are facing is the biases on part of the teachers. All students deserve attention and no single student should be sidelined for your meaningless biases.
The fourth problem that students are facing online is regarding the explanation of a topic. Research is good no doubt but even to research children/students need concepts. Without explanation, you can’t expect a student to write a Research paper. So stop giving video links in the first place rather, start explaining.
The fifth problem that students are facing is the blame game. Every time a student account is locked, the one responsible doesn’t take the responsibility rather the vicious cycle begins of blaming; switching from one department to the other.
And in this whole blame game who is the sufferer? Not the schools. It is the students who suffer each day. The institutions are getting their share in the form of fees. Why should they even care for the loss a student has to go through?
And Lastly, the problem that students have to face is the wrath of the teachers who are exposed at the hands of students for telling the truth. It’s a shame such teachers bring on the whole community of teachers/Educationists.
Dear Institutions, it is not COVID that is to be blamed. Rather it has always been your attitude due to which the endless number of students have suffered as well as their parents who are just clients to you.
Of all private schools, The CITY SCHOOL is, unfortunately, the worst institution, I have found so far. All corrupt to the core. The more you try to analyze, the more darkness you will find within. It’s too late for you to even think about it as you are at a point of no return.
May God Almighty help you and ease the pains of the sufferer.
IMPORTANCE OF GENDER EQUALITY IN FASHION INDUSTRY
Have you ever wondered about Gender Equality and its importance in the Fashion Industry? Today, I will lay my emphasis on the topic under discussion. So let’s start.
Firstly, we need to understand, what is Gender Equality? Gender Equality in simple words is access to the same opportunities and the same, fair treatment to everyone.
As individuals, most of us are aware of the benefits underlying it. It is just a matter of time when we acknowledge it especially if it is sector-specific.
Secondly, the importance of Gender Equality in the fashion industry is witnessed in the diversity of Genders, backgrounds, and ethnicity.
Such diversities within the industry can lead to greater outcomes in terms of product/delivery. This always pays off especially when it comes to decision-making regarding purchases.
Thirdly, the importance of Gender Equality in the fashion industry can lead to greater collaborations in terms of group interactions and communications at a higher scale.
We, as women have a God-gifted trait of understanding things that are not visible to a layman.
Fashion industries cannot succeed if they do not understand, the customer needs and that can only be best addressed by Gender Equality. By someone that shares the same sentiments and needs for that specific product.
And lastly, Gender Equality is best seen in an environment that promotes diversity where the focus is not on just an individual but is also on the assets/value that the individual is bringing along with him/her.
In the end, I will like to say that Gender Equality in the fashion industry can only prevail when the mindsets running businesses focus on inclusiveness and gender parity.
If you actively promote equality and diversity and have the policy to address issues about Gender Equality, then your business will thrive and people of all backgrounds can come together and achieve successes combined. Think about it.
Until next time, stay safe and healthy.
PRETEXT OF CELEBRATING PAKISTAN DAY
National days are of utmost importance for a nation. They not only educate the new generation about their glorious history but also pay tribute to the sacrifices of their forefathers.
Celebration of a day that has some history attached to it should be done with great respect.
One such day for Pakistan is 23rd March. Do You all know why we celebrate this date? Pakistani consider Pakistan Resolution Day a memorable day in the history of Pakistan’s creation.
Let’s discuss the reasons behind celebrating this Day as Pakistan day.
23rd March was the day when the respectable leaders of the Muslim community proposed the idea to have a separate homeland for Muslims.
Moreover, it was the day when leaders made the Muslim community realize that they are different from the Hindu community and therefore they should not live with them.
They should demand a separate place for themselves. Somewhere they can practice their Islamic preachings freely. Indeed they wanted to live their lives according to the Quran and Sunnah.
Allama Iqbal was the first leader who gave the idea to have a separate nation for Muslims. And later on, other respectable leaders also encouraged his idea and convinced Muslims to demand an independent country for themselves.
These respectable Muslim leaders presented the idea of Pakistan resolution on 23rd March 1940 in the Muslim league Conference held at Minto Park Lahore.
The main aspects of the Resolution were that Muslims and Hindu are two different communities. They have different religions and distinct cultures. Therefore, they can not live together.
And secondly, Muslims must have a separate place for them where they can easily practice their Islamic Preachings.
The historical speech of our great leader Quaid e Azam is ample proof of Pakistan’s creation. As said by him;
“Hindus and Muslims belong to two different religions. They are diverse in ideologies, social, traditions, and literature. Besides, they cannot marry or even eat with each other. Furthermore, they relate to two distinct civilizations. Their visions about life are different. Hindus and Muslims originated their inspiration from different sources. They have different epics and different heroes. To chain together two such nations under a single state must lead to the demolition of the two”.
In other words, we desire our people to develop to the greatest spiritual, cultural, economic, social, and political life in a manner that we suppose best.
Based on Quaid-E-Azam’s views and ideas A. K Fazal-ul-Haq presented the historical resolution. Subsequently, we recall this event as Pakistan Resolution.
The Muslims didn’t give up the idea of independence and with continuous struggle and efforts, Pakistan came into being on 14th Aug 1947.
Pakistan Resolution proves to be the basis for the creation of Pakistan. And Pakistanis celebrate this day with great enthusiasm each year.
