Is that a Cactus on your desk?

Have you ever come across with such a question?
Cacti are possibly one of the coolest plants to have on your desk. A personal escape into the wilderness. Something to look upon and feel as if you’re on a vast stretch of desert, riding a camel with the sun on your back and on a journey to a destination unknown. All of this you can feel in an instant as you shift your gaze from the blinding whiteness of your monitor, covered in last week’s emails and excel documents.

My Cacti

If I talk about the ancient times in European history, cactus considered as an ornamental plant.

Cactus plants are beautiful and dangerous, fascinating and mysterious. Cactus plants are powerful Feng Shui cures, protective talismans and ancient Chinese symbols of balance, wise accumulation, preservation and reasonable spending.
The ancient Chinese symbols of preserving and wise spending, and one of classic Feng Shui cures for shifting the energy and attracting wealth.If you have not ever by any chance heard of  Feng shui philosophy of harmony, or sometimes deemed as Taoism … well well, people who are not into nature thing must be thinking it as why sudden shift to horticulture notwithstanding change can good for the soul 😉
As Robin Sharma says;  change is hard at first, messy in the middle and so gorgeous at the end. On the whole, the robust factor of wildlife limbering up.
So pick up yourself and do a little DIY to your tedious desk and be nifty.
Place a plant in a red pot on the east side of your desk, it will encourage good health and boost your energy levels while working.Talk to me …

Trending Improv theatre..

A person who is tuned into Karachi’s burgeoning art and music sight will know exactly what Improv theatre is all about as Improvs are happening almost every other weekend at places like T2F, PACC, Thotspot, etc. However, for those of you who don’t know, Improv theatre is a form of live performance where the scenario, the plot, characters, and dialogues are all created on the spot i.e. with no script as a reference, along with the perfect combination of standup comedy. Doesn’t sound easy, does it? Well, it really isn’t. But that is exactly what makes it fun.
This past weekend, the weather wasn’t the only crazy thing happening in Karachi, the Pakistan’s all-girls comedy troupe “The Khawatoons” presented lighthearted show. All girls pulled off yet another startling dramaturgical performance, which took place at Thotspot on 29th April 2017. Following The Auratnaak Show, there were high expectations and a lot of buzz over Lovers Point. Girls successfully captured the confusion and hilarity of the situation, and all the girls did a fantastic job in performing their respective leading lady. The spot was created in an interesting manner, where most of the action takes place. There were more than nine situations to this room, and timing was essential in executing humorous situations, with the characters continuously entering and leaving the scenes. The spontaneity is applauding and up roaring. The audience found themselves relating to unfortunate lovers (Nakam Ashiq’s) situations who gets stuck in a very challenging situation, trying to cover up lies with more lies. Other charms include the situations and typescripts they were completely turning into bringing a whole new life and nostalgic to audience shadowed by heartbreaks. (hehe Evil laugh)
notwithstanding, while watching ladies performing so well my personal favorite Faiza and being not bias at the moment I plummet for Amtul’s performance, the way she dives into the character for myself the Oscar performance was the moment she was stand-in so well for a plastic girl. (Those who were there, can relate to). And those who missed it just look at the happy faces below to get the idea 😉

All things considered, the performance was very well performed, with the lively characters and engaging abrupt interchanges being the highlight of the show, this light-hearted comedy provided a breath of fresh air. Brought a smile to everyone’s face, as it was quite unexpected and much needed to the dire folks of Karachi: D

The Khawatoons rises up to the challenge with a new genre. I for one am already excited to see what they will have in store for us next time!

A Promise …

Pinky-Ring-2 Pinky promise to love yourself ..
I call it Panache self-reminders it is been known fact that the most important person to keep your promises to, is yourself.
well here i’m not talking about you to be selfish or narcissist. Being conceited is one thing but there is a need for understanding not vengeance, ubuntu not victimization.
A small smackerel of something sweet can make a big difference. ❤ so, this little love for yourself is always needed in the living existence. Its about essence of self fidelity & adherence .
Trend follow by this year will be showing the intrinsic trend of  empowerment. my self is not a feminist but her i say empowerment is not its reflection rather i call it a process of growth in ones journey, treating yourself as a priority can make big difference in its own ways and nevertheless to keep the notification alive a sign for self reminder is a must, who can ever overlook the finesse brilliance. 😉
So, all the ladies put your rings up ..  💍

Perspectives are not everyone’s reality.!!

People see from not what God has gifted but through the invisible specs that they have set for them. As it’s been heard quite a few times that you can’t see what I see.

But if we talk about Shakespeare; In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet asks “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet;”
She concludes that it is not a name which gives a thing its essential qualities. A name, in fact, is arbitrary, a rose would still smell sweet even if it were not called a rose. The other way some person’s loom perhaps factitious moreover fictitious. We all know the half full and half empty story since childhood but ever wondered the competence may be extensive perhaps Perspective is everything. You only paint the picture of what your mind chooses to see. It’s just all you need to do is reverence other’s opinion.
Keeping resolutions in mind on trivial level it looks like a fun to do list but for some people it can be a game changer completely, as we grow older and mature our desires turn into wishes and wishes turn into goals and whilst turn out to be destined to do we call it faith, so never stop yourself promising even promise are meant to be broken  😉
The basic connote of all this philosophical debate is I like pondering with ingeniously artistic factors as I second Tim Burton’s saying; “One person’s craziness is another person’s reality.”
What are your thoughts on this?


Pets are the sweet distraction from the daily life’s hustle bustle .. paws
As any cat owner—or even someone who’s seen a cat—knows, it can only be realised when they would be no more in your life..
Sasha to  Pookie now… 
I still remember her first day when we siblings were actually scared of losing her as Papa was not a pet person.. especially cats .. lol.. yes I use the word “specially cats” especially .. well let us leave it behind.. that’s another story will share some other good day 😀

cats are mostly famous for their Cattitude .. but that’s not all actually they got.. They can be many things.. simultaneously… you can experience … flattering, being playful, the stance-goddess, scratchy-monsters, greedy-lover, felicitous purr. These all are the flavours of joy you can enjoy and can feel deeply attached to your pet this attachment will linger on keep you intact with the feelings in this robotic life

Should I say modern taleem e balighan or Bananistan..!!

imageI will prefer giving Bananistan resembles a famous theatre of all time and calling it as Modern taleem e balighan.
Bananistan is a complete laughter riot one can’t resist.
I myself is the victim of Kopycats‘ deliverance the way they keep you involved, laugher jolts which will give you sustained memories.
Every character was allied ideally incomparable. A stinging satire excellently was written, a flawless lampoon of Pakistani politics.
Heartening to have a new paradigm of theatre art in our country.
All boiled down it’s a must see, a series of bon-mot you will rue missing it out.
P.s. Waiting “Abhi say” for Saray 14 August.
