For 19 years, since i was born, i did Eid-ul-Fitr in Makkah. We would charter a bus, all the family friends, and go to Makkah to perform Umrah, do Eid there and then goto Madina. thats one of the major advantages of living in khajoor land.. just pack your bags and goto Makkah, just like that. I didnt realise that until i moved to Karachi. you have no idea how i miss it. the feeling, the absolute peace of mind that the sight of Ka'ba brings. its like words can define alot of things.. but i dont think words can do justice with what one feels when one is at the Masjid-ul-Haram.

The whole trip used to be an adventure in its self. even though we did it every year, sometimes twice a year.. it was always somehow different. and it was more fun year after year. i just miss those days :(

A couple of days back... I had a long talk with a kid... well not exactly talk.. it was more like screaming and stuff, but it was a connection. I came home from my shop to find a 7-8 month year old kid sitting watching tv in the lounge.. He was my neighbour's kid. apparently he was driving his mother crazy so mom brought him home. after lunch i sat with him to watch some tv, but i had to watch what he was watching because as soon i changed the channel he started screaming :/ after one hour of screaming, gaga-goo-ing and 2 biscuits later i realized that life is as complicated as you make it. to him, all he cared about were the pretty colors on the tv and how to get his hands on my share of the biscuits (which he did actually manage to get, coz he had the upper hand at screaming :/)

As you grow up, you absorb information. alot of information. Gain experiences from different situations at different times. as time goes by, things get complicated. life gets complicated. things that used to be so simple, becomes a dilemma. Things that took us a split second to decide now takes us days to make our mind about. the point being? life is as simple as you make it to be :)
