To avoid being called a plagiarist, here are the credits. Let me know if I miss anything.


All blog posts are written by me. If this is not the case, I mention it in the beginning of the post. All photographs that appear in the posts are also taken by me. Again, if I have borrowed them from anywhere else, I mention it in the post and link to the source whenever possible.

Comments are, of course, left by the readers. Except the ones that are mine. (Duh!)

And despite what you might think, the name of this blog is not inspired by any TV show. Honestly.

Visual look

The current theme is designed by me. Please don’t look into its CSS, it’s horrible!

The juicy picture of apples that you see on every page is taken from stock.xchng. Photographer: Esther Groen.

The cute little balloon, magnifier, and feed icons are from pinvoke. Other images (Ulta Seedha logo and bullets etc.) are created by me.

Let’s get technical

Hosting is provided by Nexus. (I am a poor fellow, you see.)

Blogging platform is WordPress — code is poetry!

There are a few WordPress plugins that I have used for customizing the behaviour of this blog. They are listed below.

Plugin Description
Akismet Spam protection!
Search Excerpt Modifies the_excerpt() template code during search to return snippets containing the search phrase.
Similar Posts Displays a list of related posts.
Text Filter Suite Adds advanced text filtering functions which can mangle text in amusing ways.

If you know WordPress and its plugins, you might want to ask if the above table is generated with the help of some plugin. No, it isn’t. I wrote it down manually. (Yes, I am a nutcase like that!)

The code used for generating list of posts on the archive page is written by me. I didn’t write it as a plugin and instead used the theme’s functions.php file.


The current theme uses webfonts for headings and, more importantly, Urdu posts. (Webfonts refer to fonts which are embedded in websites and thus do not need to be installed on a user’s computer.)

The fonts used are:

Conversion to webfonts from regular font files was done using Font Squirrel’s @font-face Kit Generator.

License and stuff

All content of this blog (including but not limited to text, images, other media, and visual design) is authored/created by me, i.e. Saadat M., and is copyright 2003–2013 with all rights reserved (phew, that was a mouthful).

Basically, just don’t copy my stuff and pass it as your own. Excerpts are fine, but you must attribute them back to this blog and cite the respective URL. Also, do not copy the images, and specially do not hotlink to them. Images that I have borrowed from somewhere else mention their sources and do not fall under the above mentioned copyright, and should be used according to their original licenses. Borrowed blog posts also credit the original authors in the beginning of the respective post. Finally, comments left by readers belong to them.

Superb work absolutely. I would like to see .css file for learning some technique. :razz: is it possible?

Thank you. And yes, you can view the CSS of Ulta Seedha. In fact, you can view the CSS of any website that uses it…

If you are using Firefox, then just install the Web Developer Toolbar add-on (it’s brilliant, and I strongly recommend it if you wish to do web design/development), and click “CSS” > “View CSS”. If, however, you don’t use Firefox, then just view the source of the page you are on, find the path to the CSS file, and then copy and enter it into you browser’s address/location bar. Voila!
