Hello everyone. I'm Hamza and this is the first time I'm doing a guest post on any blog. And I am thankful to HR for providing the opportunity and honor of writing a post for her amazing blog. Given this is my first time, please ignore all the mishaps and blunders. :)
It's extremely hard to live in Pakistan and ignore the problems this nation is facing. Even if you manage to avoid the news channels and the papers, everyday life makes one ponder upon the numerous problems of the country. From the poor streets to the majestic palaces, Pakistan is submerged in a sea of issues.
Naturally, in such a condition everyone is an intellectual/thinker/philosopher OR pretends to be one. Everyone comes up with their own solution for the problems. Different people, different opinions. According to some 'corrupt politicians' are behind all the problems and for some everything's a 'Jewish conspiracy'. You know what I mean.. We are not even clearly decided what is the reason behind all this chaos.
Likewise, I have my own opinion about it, too. I believe that it is the lack of romance which is behind it all. Wait, don't get me wrong! I surely do NOT mean the kind of romance we witness in Indian films or Pakistani parks. I mean the 'other kind of romance'.
I suppose I'll be rather incoherent now. Because I've no idea how to make myself clear. Nevertheless I'll give it a try. I mean the type of romance Iqbal did, Rumi did. The romantic romance. To think of the impossible in a hapless situation. To think and believe in things that seem totally out of the question at that time.
We have to inject some romance into our lives. We've got to stop asking questions like ,"How can this happen?" "Kaisey theek hungye halaat?" We've got to BELIEVE. Because belief is even more important than work. Than anything.
I think Pakistan, this world need romance, romantic notions and romantic people. Not everything is math, somethings are supposed to be like that.
Stupid yet meaningful. Romantic yet practical.
