Updated I: My blog is fabulous too!


Long ago (well only in Oct 2009) Mr. Harish Gulzar blessed my lonely blog with this award, I's too lazy to publish it here ;) but not disinterested to show gratitude - inly sciences should have a disinterested attitude towards things. The award has some interesting and engaging rules as well. Here's the proof (for skeptic within). I'll mention them:

Rules of the Award:
* List five current obsessions.

* Pass the award on to five more fabulous blogs.

* On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person that gave you the award and link it back to them.

* When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well.

* Don’t forget to let your winners know they won an award from you by leaving a comment on their blog.
Soon I'll update, insha Allah.

Update:

List of 5 current obsessions:

This is a very pertinent question, for today's age seems to be an age of obsessions, maybe word obsession came into being in the previous century; an alternative for it can be the word 'worship' as Quran says, "Seest thou such a one as taketh for his God his own passion (or impulse)?" (Sura 2s, verse 43), and this seems to have a striking resemblance with the kinds of obsessions moderns find themselves caught up in, Allah knows best. I do tread such passions which are deified. I seek refuge from such a mentality.

Nonetheless, here are my current bizarre obsessions:

1. Blogging: I blog too much, without sitting down to reflect deeply, to make effort to write no matter how concise, but original a post. I blog on my class as well, and some other places as well. Here again, like in this material civilization of West which has successfully invaded the Oriental and imposed its insane, extremist thought-patterns on it, quality is being sacrificed for the sake of quantity, for the sake of being 'regular' and building more traffic, to get comments, which is a source of happiness for many bloggers! - how vain are such pursuits Umer!

2. Eating: I graze all day like any modern. That's not the characteristic of those societies which map the sunna of Prophet and lead a traditional life. I used to follow the traditional line of meal patterns; but thanks to the high trade and commerce activities that take place 24/7, I am consumed by it, although they like to think that I am a consumer. What I have now in my stomach, for instance, is enough to help me survive till noon on 2/Jan; yet I am susceptible to consume something 4-5 times before even it's going to be noon, God forbid. Even so, my over eating, if coupled with persistent exercise routine, is justified, rather a need - that's the point of view of my friend who's doing MBBS, who gave this prescription after observing my physical existence. So happy over-eating, join me again my buddies :)

3. Day-dreaming: Although I've come out the childish phase of fantasizing strange homes, building, missions to other planets, and what not when I's a little boy - I still miss the fun and remarkable creativity - but even today, when something bad happens, for example, my mind doesn't stop replaying and modifying again and again all sequences of that non-adorable event to make it better.

4. Lahore: I don't miss home anymore, though I miss my family. Wherever I go, I wish to come back to this complicated and strange place, a blend of so many colours... B'cause: Lore lore ay...!

5. Fighter Jets: Well, this obsession is not as strong as it used to be 2 years back, when I's just mad about flying, jets, air-to-air missiles, dog-fights, cockpit, combat helmets, the style, the risk, runways, after-burner, barrel rolls, aerobatics - What's interesting is that all that ravish madness vanished in a very short-time period right when i had become able to join the Pakistan Air Force, perhaps for political reasons, seeing PAF serving America, bombing its own people, false beliefs in nationalism. I believe Allah saved me even from attempting ISSB. Yet the smell of air, the experience of hanging the canopy sky is, pulling high 'Gs' (g-force), blacking out.... It's just too thrilling to imagine. The usefulness of this obsession is that it has the potential to boil the blood of this otherwise cold-blooded creature known as Umer Toor.

Please wait for the last update as well, until jury sits, searches and awards most stupendously maniac blogs.

Nice to see this post, and I'm Haris, not Harish :-P

Man I so miss Lahore, I miss my home, I miss my family, I miss everything... By the way, are you staying away from family coz of your studies?

M. Umer Toor said...

Oh! I won't correct it for it'd make your comment somewhat meaningless.

I hope soon you'd reunite with everything... Yes, I am staying here for studies, though with my father, who half the week lives here and rest back home, in Sargodha, the city of Shaheens...
