Out of love for the living.

there are times when the sudden urge arises and it’s almost as though God is giving you a sign. Yes truly a *green signal* exactly that when your standing at a traffic signal. The feeling was exactly the same. Upon sitting at the caffeteria right after having lunch I spot a kitty limping with pain. Her paw crumpled and curled inwards, tail tucked tightly in between her legs. Clearly the leg was ruptured, the ligaments were damaged, flesh hanging, bones jutting out. The sight was gruesome and unbearable. I called for the car and due to crazy days at home the car was as usual busy. I called a friend and said we have got to take her now. This little kitty limped her way to behind the bush and lay there lifeless as though almost ready to submit to her Creator. Pale,weak and lifeless she lay there. A friend and I picked her up and suddenly all around us people just began helping. I don’t exactly remember who did what but to be exact i just saw a number of hands just ready to do things. Some one brought a carton, another ran for the car keys and in a span of a few seconds we were off in search of a veterinary hospital in the vicinity. We went to Dr. Pirzada’s clinic in Khadda market and found that we had just missed him by a matter of minutes. Running on a spare tyre, we were un sure if we should make a trip down to phase 2 defense to the animal hospital. We did it anyway. Kitty was in agony all this time, a friend and myself held her down in a carton, trying to restrict her from salivating her wounds and making them worse. However a several calls to my aunt for directions etc and asking around the shops near by we made it to Animal hospital. We got kitty treated and the screams and howls were truly unpleasant. She seems to be on her way to recovery now, but prayers for her would clearly do wonder. It’s been a day worth living, a day of giving and for once not taking back for or from anything but just GIVING. Life is gorgeous and doing things for others makes life even more worth living. We need to spread love and just do it even in the tinniest way possible. Do it for yourself and benefit the nation. Tiny acts can become big one fine day and hopefully we shall live to see PAKISTAN blossom.

Life is an eternal quest about knowing oneself.The deep root of failure in our lives is to think, 'Oh how useless and powerless I am.' It is essential to think strongly and forcefully, 'I can do it,' without boasting or fretting.I am one of those people who love the why of things.
