Expect and live a happy life ahead 

​Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day.

Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?

Each of us has such a bank. It’s name is TIME.

Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.

Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose.

It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.

If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against “tomorrow.”

You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!

The clock is running!! Make the most of today.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why its called the present.

Short Temper Could Be Regret For Life For Husband & Wife

​I am 32 years old.  My ex hubby dated me for six years, I started dating him whilst I was in grade 12, I was 19 years old. We were the  best of friends. I waited until he completed college and started work, my family and his family then met, we got married and had a son. (Now 7 years old ).
My husband was short tempered at times, but our problems started when I wanted to make him feel he can’t control me. Every time we argued, I would pack my bags, go to my family and explain. My sisters would phone my husband and shout at him. If he is controlling me I would always dare him that if you wish divorce me- I never wanted divorce, I just had pride and I never wanted to look as a loser in his eyes.
One day I pushed him to the limit  so  that for the first time he beat me up and locked me out of the house , I returned  to my family, and they took him to the  police to  lay a charge., Every time people saw me , I looked like I was being abused! But to be honest, I used to abuse my husband emotionally.
He was arrested and detained. I was asked by his family to withdraw the case, I felt that what I was doing is wrong.

My husband was never a violent man, he did what he did because I pushed him to the limits. Of which he openly knelt down and apologized. I withdrew the charge, and we reconciled.

After three months, I packed my bags after a small issue, and he remained alone. After two days I received a call that he is in hospital, my family told me that I shouldn’t go there because it will look like am begging him for another  chance, and my sisters believed he is faking the illness.

All this time, people felt sorry for me like I was the one being abused. He spent a week in hospital, after he was discharged , I just received a  summon for a divorce . I wanted to say no to divorce, but because I felt this pride, I wanted him to change his mind and beg me, I called him and said to him that  he will get the divorce because I live like I  am in hell.
When we went to court, I wanted to make him pay, so I told the court that I needed his properties to be divided between us. To my surprise he openly told the court that whatever he and I  acquired together should be given to me, All he wanted was a divorce.
We divorced in 2009 July. Now, this Saturday my husband is getting married again, whilst I am here wasted! My family are gossiping about me, I depend financially on what my ex gives to my son for survival. I know I wasted my marriage. I am here telling all wives to be careful how and who you get advice from . Don’t be cheated. Even my young sisters are much more respected than I am. Those who encouraged me to divorce are always bad mouthing me.

There is no benefit in pride!

Hi Guys! Hope you are all fine and oh wait… Happy Eid-Ul-Azha Mubarak to all. This is the first day of Bakra Eid 2016. So now let’s come to the point. There is a boom of cab service you can find in Pakistan especially in Lahore. I have already explained the way you can book a ride on them easily and  in less price. It includes Albayrak ATaxi, Careem, Uber and EasyCab. Now the question is that many people are asking me for a link to Careem Partner App that they cannot find on the internet. Here I will give you the link careem partner app but it would be useless if you’re not registered with them. Because it asks for mobile number registered with it and pin code that will be set after your first sign in. Anyways, even then I am going to share you an android app apk with you. Not for iOS as of today.

Hawwa Ki Baiti (Urdu) 

​آج صبح سے ہی موسم خشگوار ہے شاید اسی لئےگوگا مرغ چنے جو ماڈل ٹاون میں واقع ہےکا ناشتا کرنے کا من کیا۔ گھر سے اپنی گاڑی نکال کر موسم کو انجوائے کرتا ہوا گوگا چنے پہنچا۔ میرے وہاں پہنچتے ہی ایک ویٹر جو کہ عمومن میرے لیے ناشتا میز پر لگاتا ہے فوراًُ آیا اور میز صاف کر کہ ناشتا لگوا کر لے آیا۔ 

                 بارش بہت تیز ہو چکی تھی،میں موسم کے ساتھ ساتھ لذیذ ناشتے سے بھی لطف اندوز ہو رہا تھا، اسی دوران ایک میاں بیوی (جو کہ شاید نو بیہتا جوڑاتھا) بارش میں مذید بھیگنے سے بچنے کے لئے گوگا چنے والے کے سامنے  اپنی موٹر سائکل پارک کر کہ سائبان کے نیچے کھڑے ہو گئے۔ بارش کافی تیز تھی اسی لیے وہ جوڑا مکمل بارش میں بھیگ چکا تھا۔

                  اتفاق سے میں نے ویٹر کو بل منگوانے کے لئے جب آواز دی تو وه موصوف آنکھیں پھاڈ پھاڈ کر حوّا کی مجبور بیٹی کو اپنی آنکھوں کی حوّس کا نشانہ بنا رہا تھا۔ ذیاده افسوس تب ہوا جب میں نے دیکھا کہ وہاں پر موجود ہر شخص اسی خاتون کی طرف نظریں جمائے ہوئے تھا۔ 

                   اس حوّا کی بیٹی کو شائد یہ بھی معلوم نہ تھا کہ کتنے بھیڑئے شکاری کی نظر سے اسے دیکھ رہے ہیں۔  ایمان کا تو یہ عالم تھا کہ ایک شخص اپنی لالچی نظروں سے مسکراتے ہوئے اس خاتون کی طرف آس پاس کے لوگوں کی توجہ مرکوز کروا رہا تھا اور ساتھ استغفرالللہ کا ورد کئے جا رہا تھا۔ کیش کائونٹر پر  ایک شخص جو کہ سر پر ٹوپی اور ہاتھ میں تسبیح لئے بیٹھا تھا اچانک بولا ” یا الللہ ہور بارش پا”

کائونٹر پر بل ادا کر کہ باہر نکلتے وقت میرے ذہن میں ایک ہی بات گردش کر رہی تھی کہ کاش یہی وقت ایک دن ان لوگوں پر آئے، پھر انکو احساس ہو کہ اپنی عزت جب ایسے بھوکے بھیڑیوں کی نظروں کا شکار ہوتی ہے تو کیسا محسوس ہوتا ہے۔

Guide For Getting a better taxi ride in Lahore

The general environment of Lahore is changing day by day. People are getting more techy because of the recent IT boom in the city. There are more IT companies are being registered in Punjab as compared to other provinces of Pakistan. It is the proof that Punjab Information Technology Board is very serious about getting a better and smart lifestyle to its citizens. Due to increased population of human and vehicles, people are becoming tired of driving their cars on the roads just because of rush and some psychological issues.

Let’s come to the Taxi Business in Lahore. There are 3 major Taxi companies in Lahore. These are Careem (Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad), Uber (Lahore, More Cities Soon) and A-Taxi (Lahore). All have the nose to nose tough competition in getting a market share. But make sure that those companies who are linked with IT industry will get more market share. Careem and Uber are all set and working through mobile platform where as A-Taxi is not.

When you are ready to move anywhere through taxi, you first compare the prices. So this guide will help you in getting a cheap and comfortable taxi and some tips also.

If we compare the tariff of these companies, Careem is a bit expensive than A Taxi and Uber. Uber is cheaper than Careem.

How To Choose Cheaper Taxi?

There are 2 ways you can book a ride for your within city trip. One is through the company’s app and second is to call on their hotline. A Taxi and Careem can book you a taxi through its hotline number where as Uber doesn’t allow it. You will have to use its app to call the taxi.

Booking a ride through hotline:

You can call Careem at 042-111-CAREEM and for A Taxi, you can call 042-111-961-961.

How To Sign UP?

Click Here for signing up to Careem. Click Here to singing up to uber.

Fares and Tariff:

In regular tariff, uber is more cheaper than Careem. If you have a Careem promotion code, then it becomes cheaper than Uber. So always check for the Careem Promotional Codes before booking any of two rides. For the promotional code, you can sign up for Careem newsletters. The email you the codes that can make your ride more cheaper. In Uber, if it is your first time to take a ride, please call the person who have already uber installed in their phone and account is active. Ask him to provide you his personal invitation code. Apply that code in your uber app’s Promotion page and you will get a first ride free worth up to 500PKR. After your complete ride, your friend will also be rewarded. To find your personal invitiation code, click here and share it with your friends so that you could also earn more free rides.

Careem’s Business and Economy Rides:

Minimum fare for Careem economy is 200 and business is 250. Sometimes using a promotional code, your business ride can be less in price than economy. So make sure that you check your fare both in business and economy and do put your promotional code. Promotional codes do not work on Economy rides.

REMEMBER, DON’T LET YOUR DRIVER WAIT. IT WILL COST YOU.

Tips For Using Uber:

  1. Do not let your driver wait as it costs you.
  2. When taking a free ride, do not cancel the ride FOR ANY REASON if your ride has been accepted.
  3. Some people cancels the ride when they see a small car is coming to them. Make sure it will lose your free trip. So beware.
  4. Uber accepts cars from 1000CC to onward and the car is not old enough. So don’t worry.
  5. Uber’s cars are always good in AC. If you get a malfunctioning AC in your car, you can complain to them on their twitter or facebook account.

Example of Getting A Ride

I would like to go from Liberty Market to Shaukat Khanam Hospital in Johar Town.

Total distance is around 14KM if I go by Canal Bank road. Make sure we have Careem’s promotional code which makes your 2 rides at 50% discount. The code is STUCKPAK. For uber, we have friend share code that makes your trip totally waive off until 500 PKR. And A-Taxi doesn’t give discounts.

Below is the simple chart for better understanding.

NAME OF COMPANY
Careem Uber A-Taxi
Regular Fare (PKR) 481-553 320-393 Around 500
Discounted Fare (PKR) 240-276 0 Not Available
Distance 14KM 14KM 14KM
  • Bases on the above chart, we can see that if you have a free ride available in your uber account, it is best option
  • If you don’t have a free ride available in uber then you must check your email for this month’s promotional code of careem. You can contact them via facebook and twitter for more.
  • If you have a careem code, It is best option among three.
  • If you don’t have a careem code and a free ride, then Uber is more cheaper than other two.

Based on my personal experience of Uber and Careem, I like both the services. But I prefer Careem because it is more professional than Uber. I will not recommend A-Taxi because I can’t guide them the way actually I am on the phone. Because they don’t have an app for this.

I hope someday there will be an app which will compare the fare of Careem, Uber and any third company. Anyone who creates it, please remember my this post as this is my idea and label me the co-founder. :)

 

Dolat aur aik glass pani

ایک بادشاہ نے اپنی رعایا پر ظلم و ستم کرکے بہت سا خزانہ جمع کیا تھا۔ اور شہر سے باہر جنگل بیابان میں ایک خفیہ غار میں چھپا دیا تھا اس خزانہ کی دو چابیاں تھیں ایک بادشاہ کے پاس دوسری اس کے معتمد وزیر کے پاس ان دو کے علاوہ کسی کو اس خفیہ خزانہ کا پتہ نہیں تھا۔.ایک دن صبح کو بادشاہ اکیلا سیر کو نکلا۔ اور اپنے خزانہ کو دیکھنے کے لئے دروازہ کھول کر اس میں داخل ہوگیا۔ خزانے کے کمروں میں سونے چاندی کے ڈھیر لگے ہوئے تھے۔ ہیرے جواہرات الماریوں میں سجے ہوئے تھے۔ دنیا کے نوادرات کونے کونے میں بکھرے ہوئے تھے۔ وہ ان کو دیکھ کر بہت خوش ہوا۔. اسی دوران وزیر کا اس علاقہ سے گذر ہوا۔ اس نے خزانے کا دروازہ کھلا دیکھا تو حیران رہ گیا اسے خیال ہوا کہ کل رات جب وہ خزانہ دیکھنے آیا تھا شاید اس وقت وہ دروازہ بند کرنا بھول گیا ہو اس نے جلدی سے دروازہ بند کرکے باہر سے مقفل کردیا۔. ادھر بادشاہ جب اپنے دل پسند خزانہ کے معائنہ سے فارغ ہوا تو واپس دروازہ پر آیا لیکن یہ کیا…؟ دروازہ تو باہر سے مقفل تھا اس نے زور زور سے دروازہ پیٹنا اور چیخنا شروع کیا لیکن افسوس اس کی آواز سننے والا وہاں کوئی نہ تھا ۔ وہ لوٹ کر پھر اپنے خزانے کی طرف گیا اور ان سے دل بہلانے کی کوشش کی لیکن بھوک اور پیاس کی شدت نے اسے تڑپانا شروع کیا وہ پھر بھاگ کر دروازہ کی طرف آیا لیکن وہ بدستور بند تھا۔ وہ زور سے چیخا چلایا۔ لیکن وہاں اس کی فریاد سننے والا کوئی نہ تھا وہ نڈھال ہوکر دروازے کے پاس گرگیا۔. جب بھوک پیاس سے وہ بری طرح تڑپنے لگا تو رینگتا ہوا ہیروں کی تجوری تک گیا اس نے اسے کھول کر بڑے بڑے ہیرے دیکھے جن کی قیمت لاکھوں میں تھی اس نے بڑے خوشامدانہ انداز میں کہا اے لکھ پتی ہیرو! مجھے ایک وقت کا کھانا دیدو۔ اسے ایسا لگا جیسے وہ ہیرے زور زور سے قہقہے لگا رہے ہوں۔ اس نے ان ہیروں کو دیوار پر دے مارا۔ پھر وہ گھسٹتا ہوا موتیوں کے پاس گیا اور ان سے بھیک مانگنے لگا ۔ اے آبدار موتیو! مجھے ایک گلاس پانی دیدو ۔ لیکن موتیوں نے ایک بھر پور قہقہہ لگایا اور کہا اے دولت کے پجاری کاش تو نے دولت کی حقیقت سمجھ لی ہوتی۔ تیری ساری عمر کی کمائی ہوئی دولت تجھے ایک وقت کا کھانااور پانی نہیں دے سکتی۔. بادشاہ چکرا کر گرگیا۔ جب اسے ہوش آیا تو اس نے سارے ہیرے اور موتی بکھیر کر دیوار کے پاس اپنا بستر بنایا اور اس پر لیٹ گیا وہ دنیا کو ایک پیغام دینا چاہتا تھا لیکن اس کے پاس کاغذ اور قلم نہیں تھا ۔ اس نے پتھر سے اپنی انگلی کچلی اور بہتے ہوئے خون سے دیوار پر کچھ لکھ دیا۔. حکومتی عہدیدار بادشاہ کو تلاش کرتے رہے لیکن بادشاہ نہ ملا, جب کئی دن کی تلاش بے سود کے بعد وزیر خزانہ کا معائنہ کرنے آیا تو دیکھا بادشاہ ہیرے جواہرات کے بستر پر مرا پڑا ہے۔ اور سامنے کی دیوارپرخون سے لکھا ہے ۔

’’یہ ساری دولت ایک گلاس پانی کے برابر بھی نہیں ہے”
