When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it

“I have forgiven mistakes that were indeed almost unforgivable. I’ve tried to replace people who were irreplaceable and tried to forget those who were unforgettable. I’ve acted on impulse, have been disappointed by people when I thought that this could never be possible… But I have also disappointed those who I love. I have laughed at inappropriate occasions. I’ve made friends that are now friends for life. I’ve screamed and jumped for joy. I’ve loved and I’ve been loved. But I have also been rejected and I have been loved without loving the person back. I’ve lived for love alone and made vows of eternal love. I’ve had my heart broken many, many times! I’ve cried while listening to music and looking at old pictures. I’ve called someone just to hear their voice on the other side. I have fallen in love with a smile. At times, I thought I would die because I missed someone so much. At other times, I felt very afraid that I might lose someone very special (which ended up happening anyway). But I have lived! And I still continue living everyday. I’m not just passing through life and you shouldn’t either… Live! The best thing in life is to go ahead with all your plans and your dreams, to embrace life and to live everyday with passion, to lose and still keep the faith and to win while being grateful. All of this because the world belongs to those who dare to go after what they want. And because life is really too short to be insignificant.” Charlie Chaplin

Innovation is not about money. Steve Jobs.

‎”Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.”

Steve Jobs — Fortune Magazine, Nov. 9, 1998

Technology. Changing our lives.

What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Saluting all our martyrs of the Rawalpindi Parade Lane tragedy! [we. condemn. terrorism. anywhere. and. everywhere!]

Dedicated to one of the most beautiful individuals I’ve had the good fortune of knowing – Muhammad Bilal Riaz Shaheed.

==

Last year, on Friday, the 4th of December, ’09, our truly beloved friend, brother, mentor.. a gem of a person, passed away in a horrible act of terrorism at the Westridge mosque in Pindi.

40+ others also lost their lives whilst offering the Juma prayers at the tragic event. As informed, Bilal gave his life whilst protecting his young nephew by lying over him and successfully sheltering him from the spraying bullets.

The nation lost a true eloquent leader, the parents their irreplaceable child, a fiancé her to-be hubby, academic institutions (Beacon House, PK; GIKI, PK; Imperial, UK) their blue-eyed alum, and all others who had had the privilege of having known him- a lovely lovely and truly lovely ‘dost’ (friend).

Please, please pray for his Maghfirat, and his journey in the Life Ahead; and for strength to his family and his loved ones who today bear.. an irreparable loss.

May Allah bless him with the Heavens *Ameen*
