Don’t Fall In Love With A Virgo

I am a believing Virgo and this is my view on why you should not fall in love with a Virgo.

Virgos are some of the most real people you will ever come across in your lives. It is hard to meet anyone as honest and real as Virgos. Their brutal honesty, practical approach to life, and their ability to just be open about who they really are will force you to accept your true self. If not sooner, then there will come a time when you will become so motivated to be the person you always wanted to be, all thanks to the fact that you fell in love with a Virgo. If you are scared of realizing yourself, don’t fall in love with a Virgo.

They are the ones who are going to stand beside you when you make the decision to change your life for good. They will keep pushing you towards your goals. They will make you realize your fears in life and overcome them. They will stand beside you in your most gruesome fight of your life – The Brain vs The Heart. They will help you understand what your heart actually wants and why your brain keeps on saying no. The craziness is not a matter of concern when it comes to achieving one’s goals. That is the motto Virgos live by and if you are afraid of being crazy, don’t fall in love with a Virgo.

Virgos are pergectionist by nature. It doesn’t matter how much you tell them they are good enough, they will always find a way to look at the things they lack the most. They are good at heart and strive hard to achieve their goals, often overpowering others in their struggle to be the best. This leads to those around them assume that they are making them look inferior, but that is not the case. The truth is that they are simply trying to make sure that, at the end of the day, they are good enough for themselves. No, they are not selfish. They are just programmed to believe that everyone’s extraordinary is their average. At the same time, they are extremely modest and don’t like giving themselves credit where it is due. That is why Virgos make really good ghost writers. If you can’t handle them at their worst, don’t fall in love with a Virgo.

Don’t fall in love with a Virgo because they have a hard time letting go of their past and find it extremely hard to forgive themselves. On the other hand, they are usually the first one’s to forgive you and let of of the grudge.

No matter how high their own standard might be, they will never hold you to those standard. Virgos will value you more than anyone you know. They are well aware of the fact that it is hard to love because they struggle to love themselves. They will shower unconditional love upon you if they are loved the same way and would never judge you for falling short of their expectations. Exceptions do exist and depend a lot on the situation at hand. They love others so much that you wish they might just somehow channel all that love into themselves. But that is not the case as Virgos are not known for being self-centered.

Don’t ever fall in love with a Virgo if you are not down with conviction and a full life, including love and relationships. Virgos give it their all and never work towards anything half-heartedly. You will be left wondering whether you can keep up with the pace.

A Virgo will never stop fighting for you and will never give up on you. Ever. Your dreams and goals in life matter to them more than they matter to you. Their belief in your and your abilities will only grow as time goes on. They want to stand by you when you get there so if you don’t want them to be there, don’t fall in love with a Virgo.

Virgos are always work in progress. They are constantly fighting this inner battle to improve and be better than they were a second ago. Their mind is constantly buzzing with voices from their heart to keep on improving. Don’t fall in love with a Virgo if this irritates you but if you are one of those partners who can keep up with the self-improvement, then you will become an envious couple.

Pakistan Independence Day

71 Years of Pakistan – Where Did We Go Wrong?

70 years later, we are still divided among ourselves. 71 years later, we are still searching for an independent nation.

As I pen this article down, I am sitting inside a McDonalds, sipping a Strawberry Shake, the whole place is filled with Green and White lights, and the streets are buzzing with fireworks, aerial firing, whooshing motorcycles and the evergreen Dil Dil Pakistan. Some kids are ecstatic with the new found toy from China – a colorful blow trumpet made out of plastic – that has a very annoying sound to it. From where I am sitting, just across the street, a traffic police officer is busy in doing his routine collection from the parking ticket mafia. And behind me is a couple discussing about their next upcoming trip to Thailand because they are bored from their routine and want something good in life. The two young fella’s sitting across from my table are sipping Caramel Cappuccino (mind you, it is awesome!) and having a great discussion around one question: What is Pakistan for you? The discussion came to a stand still when one of the fella cracked a joke:

“Pakistan meri jaan hai, mujhe Pakistan se bahot pyaar hai…par mujhe shiddat se mere visa ka intizaar hai.”

It is time to leave.

.

.

.

Wait.

I meant, it is time for them to leave. You have to hang around and read what I have to say!

Isn’t it Amazing? 71 long years. Every year or in a decade or so, we see and hear different people claim that for Pakistan, this is it. It is do or die. It is over for Pakistan. They often forget this one saying of Mohammad Ali Jinnah:

Jinnah once said, ‘’There is no power on Earth that can undo Pakistan.”

If I may, using the powers bestowed to me by the virtue of this very website, edit this statement a bit to make it look like this:

‘’There is no power on Earth that can undo Pakistan, except for the Pakistani’s themselves.”

Pakistan, just now, entered its 71st year of independence. 71 years on, and we are still stuck at that one question that we need to ask ourselves: WHERE DID WE ACTUALLY GO WRONG?

Often, we ask ourselves, what has Pakistan done for me? What has Pakistan given me? Plethora of trash on the streets? Water-crisis? Gas-crisis? Political Crisis? Economic Crisis? Terrorism? Street Crimes? Pollution? Weak Institutions? Corrupt Politicians? Weak Infrastructure? Weak Justice System? Educations Crisis? Gender Crisis?

That is too much to get, without even asking for it.

But is this the fault of Pakistan or the people that live inside Pakistan? The people that like to be called Pakistani’s. Whose fault is it?

For 71 years, Pakistan tried to give everything it had to its people. Unfortunately, owing to some disgusting pests, it failed to deliver upon its promise of being the best nation in the world.

71 years have passed. We really can’t do much about them. They are gone. But we sure can do a lot about the coming 70 years.

Where to Start?

As Pakistanis, we have to take a simple step. We have to rise above hate for each other. We have to keep the religious, political, ethnically, or educational differences aside and come forward as one single nation. The time has come for us to look inside ourselves and ask our souls the question we have ignored for long:

What are you giving back to Pakistan?

We have to keep on asking this question till we finally realize that we have wasted a lot of time. We have already sacrificed a lot of innocent lives. We have to realize that we have lost a lot of resources and are running out of time. We have to realize that we have become divided on the basis of color, caste, ethnicity, and status. We have to stop ignoring the stark realities and put our feet on ground zero. We have to start afresh. We have to unlearn and undo all that we have seen, done, or have become in the past 71 years.

As Pakistanis, it is time for us to realize that we have a separate identity. We cannot allow our culture to be outdone by the culture of the west. We have to resist the temptations. We have to step out of our comfort zones and start doing our bit for Pakistan. This is something we have not done for the past 70 years of our independence. It is time for us to stand and make Pakistan our pride and dignity. It is time for us to leave aside the external and internal forces destroying our nation and focus on what we, as Pakistanis, can do for our nations prosperity.

Everybody wants Independence. Everybody around the globe love Independence. But, now I believe that – like me – many other citizens of Pakistan are waiting for another Independence for our Nation. Not all the citizens, but some of them are desperately waiting and are willing to fight for freedom from the idiotically chosen “ones”. We have already witnessed the table turn on a few corrupt politicians and diplomats during the past year or so. We have already seen people being held accountable for their wrong doings and sent to prison for violating the agreement of a nation’s responsibility.

We are already witnessing a ray of hope in the form of a new and freshly elected third democratic government in a row in a nation that saw martial laws after martial laws.

If, we have to survive as a nation, we have to forget about “Lahore Lahore hai”, “Karachi ki toh baat hi kuch aur hai”, “I love being Islamabadi..”; We have to strive as ONE BIG NATION OF CITIZENS WILLING TO BE TOGETHER!

We have to forget about our Provinces, because the means in which this word is now being used is proving disastrous for Pakistan. We have to come together for our Pakistan. Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Issai, Shia’a, Sunni, Memon, Mahajir, Pathan, Punjabi, Afghani, Kashmiri, Balochi etc etc …all the hatred for each other is to be put aside and we have to start following on the right path, seek for our forgiveness from the Lord Almighty, ask HIM (Subhan Wa Tallah) for help in even the teeniest of the matters and start working and molding our lives accordingly.

If each and everyone of us is going to take a stand, maybe tomorrow, we’ll have one, next week, it might be two and who knows, by the Grace of God, it might turn into millions in a short time, but we have to be patient and keep on working hard if we are willing to exist as a Nation, as ONE NATION, AS ONE “ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN!” Yes, that is the name of the country, ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN!

For us, it is now or never. We have to decide the path we are going to choose to walk on. We have to brush aside the differences and focus on our Pakistan. Because the Time Is Now! There is definitely a passionate Pakistani inside all of us, we just need to bring that out!

 

,اس وقت کے ساتھ چلنا ھوگا آج

اپنے کل کو بدلنا ھوگا آج۔

,نکلنا ھوگا بہار خوابون کی دنیا سے

اور پھچاننا ھوگا حقیقت کی گہرائی کو آج۔

,کرنا ھوگاّ قربان اہنکار کو اپنے

اور کندھون سے کندھے ملاکر چلنا ہوگا اب ساتھ۔

,نا کاراچی، نا لاہور۔۔۔ نا کوئٹہ، نا پشاور

کرنا ہوگا بندھ ان انگلیون کو اپنی اور اُترنا ہوگا میدان مین اب ایک ساتھ۔

,کرنا ہوگا اپنی ہمت سے زیادہ برداشت

کیون کہ اب لرنا ہے ہمین ایک ساتھ۔

,نا حکمران، نا سیاستدان

!اب خود ہی سنوارنا ہے ہمین اپنا پاکستان

To make it easy, I am going to write this in Roman Urdu as well.

Is waqt ke saath chalna hoga aaj,
Apnal aane waale kal ko badalna hoga aaj.

Nikalna hoga bahar khawabon ki duniya se,
Aur pehchaanna hoga haqeeqat ki gehraayi ko aaj.

Karna hoga Qurbaan Ana ko apni,
Kandhon se kandhay mila kar chalna hoga saath.

Naa Karachi, Naa Lahore, Naa Peshawar, Naa Quetta,
Karna hoga bandh in ungliyon ko apni aur utarna hoga maidaan main ab ek saath.

Karna hoga apni himmat se ziada bardaasht,
Kyun k ab larna hai hamain ek saath.

Naa Hukumraan, Naa Siasatdaan,
Ab Khud Hi Sanwaarna Hai Hamain Apna Pakistan!
