I cannot live without books. (Thomas Jefferson)
Books are water for mind. Fortunately, everyone wants water, without which life would never exist. Without books, one is living a lifeless life.Though living without books seems simple and normal, but there lies an inner part that strives for books' hunger. Only a book has caused revolutions in people's lives. A society saturated with the need of book is the society that shines with the beauty of progress. Books are the gates that open into the city of knowledge. A hand holding a book is ensuring the better future of its possessor.
When we leaf through the pages full of quotes of famous authors, we come to know that all read books before writing a book. When you buy a book, you actually don't buy a book, you achieve whole secret of life. When you hold a book, you are actually holding life in your hands.

After a wait of several seconds, a jet of blue light came from the watch, fizzled, and started revolving us at a great speed, giving us a relaxation and a cold mist, which we breathed while in the cage of light––a cage of a luxurious life. A thick fog came from my right side, snoozed, and interfered with our vision and sense of olfaction for a small interval of time. The jet of blue light bolted away beneath my shoes, leaving us alone and locked in the whiteness of the fogged world's cage from where I was unable to move and was like a lame floating in the dilute air of the nowhere world. My right hand was glued hard with the old man's hand that seemed to be unaffected by the atmosphere surrounding us. I was going higher and higher, having no signs of a ground or floor beneath my shoes. I was like a helpless reactant going through a chemical reaction. Slowly and gradually the fog started to fade and we landed on a soft ground which felt like sand. Soon, the fog vanished away, showing a red hot desert in front of us.

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page. (SAINT AUGUSTINE)
First, we decided to go to Taxila Cantt where my uncle lived. On our way, we stopped at Rohtas Fort in Jehlum. Its history goes to Sher Shah Suri. He was a mughal emperor and constructed it. It was indeed a beautiful place.
Well, that's me in the picture and that historical building standing behind me is a gate of Rohtas Fort. We also went in that gate. The picture shown below has a little close view.
|House of Man Singh In Rohtas Fort|
In the above picture, you can see that some part of the house is missing. I hope it was broken by environmental changes. After enjoying this, we went to a place we called the helipad of Sher Shah Suri because the top part of it resembled much like a helipad..... lol.
In the meanwhile, it started raining. We ran in our cars and went to Texila Cantt in our uncle's home. It was only a night stay there. The next day, we went to Murree. There on express way, we stopped for a moment and ate maize. It was very tasty! The scenery was quite delightsome. We went to our rest house. Our neighbours were quite silent but we were like being noisy neighbours for them.They would be desiring a sound proofing wall :) We rested for a while and then went to mall road at evening. The next day, we went to nathia gali, ayubia and kalabagh. All the pictures are below.
|A gate to forest. It was in front of our room in rest house.|
|An accident! My cousin's just making fun!|

|Lol.... It's Pakistan.|

Education is the necessity of ones life. An educated person knows the right path of life, whereas, an uneducated person is lost in the swarthy darkness of ignorance. An educated person remains successful and prosperous in his life. He spends a better life than one can imagine because education is a dictionary of life. I am completely in favour of what John Dewey said:
“Education is not preparation of life; education is life itself.”
A school is that rose which spreads the aroma of education everywhere. The day you open the school door, you close the door of ignorance forever. A school gives us the elixir of eternal knowledge. The first and last days of school are of great importance. The first day is the day of the entrance in the luminous life; however, this day may cause anxiety, fear and nervousness. The last day at school is the day of success, hope and smiles.
My last day at school has a prominent position in my memory. I woke up at the crack of dawn. I was feeling much relaxed that day because I had no burden of studies on my head. At last my heavy satchel was off my back. I was feeling the fresh air of relief. I put on my clothes and headed towards my school. Every student at my school was grinning like a Cheshire cat. I made my way towards my class fellows who were embracing one another and were promising to meet again. Our juniors of ninth class had arranged a great farewell party for us.
Our honourable principal and praiseworthy teachers also participated. Formal farewell speeches were made on the occasion. A boy sang a melodious “ghazal” and everyone enjoyed listening it. Finally, the principal addressed the gathering. He advised us to struggle for a better life. He said that we were the only hope of our nation and we would have to lead our country to the height of success and prosperity. At that time, I was reminded of the saying of Hazrat Ali (A.S):
“Whoever wants to be a leader should educate himself before educating others.”
Everything went great guns during the party. We ate our favourite dishes and enjoyed a lot. Before dispersing, we thanked our juniors for their indispensable party.

Even if you have done a work never witnessed by sun,
Patience is the best weapon you can use
To kill the doubts and never to loose.
Always talk when it's the time to talk;
Always see whether it's light or dark.
You have read, "Look before you leap."
For the abyss of problems is very deep.

I can elaborate that nature is the hand writing of God which is very difficult, but important too. For example, a doctor's writing is difficult to understand but it may contain information about the life and death of a person. Similarly, writing of God contains an extraordinary and eminent beauty.

"What God does, he does well."
If you have any suggestions, any criticism, do share it.
"Free will is an illusion. People always choose the perceived path of greatest pleasure."
A man has never been a free agent from his birth to death. For example, his daily opinions are based on his personal experience and education which is provided to him by the nature. If he was given a free will, he would be there lying on the floor after jumping from a window on the 6th floor of a building. If he had the right for a free will, he could do anything, whether it was for his welfare or not.
For another example, when we turn a T.V on, we say, "The T.V is working." But actually, if we think deep, it is working because we made it to do this. It is working because of the different parts present in it. It doesn't work on its will. We are the same. Jawaharlal Nehru said:
"Life is like a game of cards. The hand you are dealt is determinism; the way you play it is a free will."

"All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking."
I looked around, I espied and observed everything, but found nothing but nature. I read nothing but the novel of this world where everyone is playing a significant part. William Shakespeare rightly said:
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and thei entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages."
We can see that a plant can even absorb muddy water for its survival. Similarly, we have to face evil to struggle for a true life. Living a life is no more than sitting with paralysed body; surviving for life is the reason for you to be sent down in this world. Hans Christian Anderson said:
"Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
Now, what is life? It's a wide ranging name giving birth to many philosophical ideas but still, the life remains undefined. What is this that we walk, we eat, we run, we laugh, we cry and we do whatever we want to do? Now everywhere I look, I look life. Life is with us, but we are not with life because life can define us, but we can't properly define it in terms of philosophy. Robert Bryne told the meaning of life in general as:
"The purpose of life is a life of purpose."
There is nothing new around us. The world was made for struggle and is existing because of struggle. When we look around, we hope to find something new (and we find something new but it's in our views). The truth is that, when you look beyond the thinking of an ordinary man, you'll know that nothing is new. You are living and just living; nothing else. You desire to run; you run very fast and assume it to be a new thing for you but no! It's in your nature to run. Nothing new.
A new thing happens at that moment when you die because your dying giving something new to this world. Now, let me explain it with the help of a transcendent quote of Richard Bach.
"Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is fininshed. If you're alive, it isn't."

If God was not present, I would rather think that even the present would never exist for the existence of man. If there is some existence, there must be a creator of this existence to exist in this present. Even if a person who doesn't believe in God, he might think some day that someone is up there looking him and helping him in the story which He made for him. Well, explaining this, I want to cite a quote of Homer Simpson:
I am not normally a religious man, but... if you're up there, save me, superman.
The God is the maker - the maker of the makers. If He was not present, how could we make our eyes look around, because every time you look around, you espy on something which reflects the greatness and presence of God. If God was not present, what was the purpose of us to be sent down here; what could be our purpose to look around and talk and hear and taste. When there is some purpose of us to be sent down here, there must also be a reason for him to take us back to him. Winston Churchill said:
I am ready to meet my maker. Whether my Maker is prepare for the ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
If God was not present, we couldn't know when a person was in space and in no time he stood beside us.
There would be blunders. Blunders not committed by us but by the laws of nature. It would be something real to us at that moment, but now it's completely strange. No one can explain what would happen if the God was not present, but little endeavours can be compiled to give a true shape to tell this unanswered question. We have to think differently to explain this topic because different likes different.

Student: Yes madam.
Teacher: Then why is that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position, the blood doesn't flow into my feet?
Student: Because your feet are not empty.

Today's Isaac Newton's 368th birthday.
Date Of Birth:
He was born on December 25, 1642.
Date Of Death:
He died on March 20, 1726.
He was an English physician, astronomer, mathematician, alchemist and theologian. He was a great physician and physics became luminous after his work on law of gravitation, laws of motion and formulation of equations of motion. A common story known by everyone is that once Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple came down and hit his head. This gave him the thought of the reason of this fall. He thought and thought and at last gave his law of gravitation.
Some Funny Jokes About Newton:
1. Physics would have been much easier if the tree had fallen on Newton's head instead of an apple :)
2.Gravity is a law and lawbreaker must be brought down.
3. The force applied by a boy while proposing a girl is equal and opposite to the force by which the girl slaps.
4. Physics would have been much easier if Newton was sitting under a coconut tree instead of an apple tree.

Patiently waiting to welcome the morn.
It had a secret of forest to tell
To one who could keep it well.
Nature blew the wind across.
The tree was ready to break the laws.
But bad! The tree could hardly stare
When the wind became the air.
A giraffe happened to come across.
The tree was ready to break the laws.
The giraffe came and ate its leaves.
It saw something and suddenly flees.
Many days and weeks came across.
The tree was always ready to break the laws.
But bad! The tree could hardly find a day
To say what it wanted to say.
One day, a bird happened to cross.
The tree was ready to break the laws.
But poor! The bird fell on ground
After a deadly firing sound.
A man with a gun happened to cross.
The tree was ready to break the laws.
The hidden secret was at last told.
The secret of forest was at last sold.
The next day, an apocalypse came.
The yesterday and tomorrow were not same.
The destruction of forest could be seen.
Every human was being so mean.
The same man with an axe happened to cross.
The man was ready to break the laws.
The tree which once stood like a wall,
After breaking a trust, had to fall.
