This blog is no longer being updated. Last post was “Farewell”.
“You are a highly absurd person.” Imran informed me this morning as I was walking towards him and Wse after entering the university’s campus.
I smiled interrogatively.
“If you could come just a couple of minutes later, and we would have gone, assuming that you are also enjoying the weather.” He explained, and I silently agreed that I had really been absurd there.
I mean who would like to go and attend two boring lectures in a weather such as this morning’s, when clouds were scattered all over the sky, and you could hear that cold winter breeze swooshing past your body, making you think why you didn’t listen to your mother who asked you to put your leather-jacket on. Add to it the fact that we came to know our score in one of the exams we have had last week, and it was sufficient to make us feel more absurd.
Then it rained. The same rain for which people had been praying at the end of every namaz. It wasn’t cats and dogs actually, but it was comfortable. Highly comfortable.
So you can ask me why I am sitting here writing these lines when I should be out enjoying the weather as there are no lectures to attend now. The answer would be that the highly comfortable rain has stopped. Those clouds, which were scattered all over the sky, are still there with the change that they are now highly scattered, letting the sunlight pass through. And, although it is cold, there’s no cold breeze anymore. The weather altogether is pleasant, and I might have gone out for a walk if I could find any way of walking over the water of those ponds made by the rain and supported by Rawalpindi’s roads.
And here’s some news: I noticed a great deal of traffic to this journal of mine (which was, well, quite surprising) and as I was tracking my visitors, I came to know of these Asia Weblog Awards 2003, having a category named “Best Pakistan Blog”. So go there, nominate your favourite blog, or vote for the ones already existing there.
And I would highly appreciate if somebody could tell me that who on earth nominated me?
