To err is human; to forgive, divine…/…Yanılmak insanca; bağışlamak kutsalca bir iştir… Alexander Pope

YA BAKİ ENTEL BAKİ

Life comes down to a series of choices.

To hold on…

To let go…to forget…to forgive…

Which road will you take?

Hayat size bir dizi seçenek sunar.

Tutunmak…

Bırakmak… Unutmak… Affetmek…

Siz hangi yolu seçerdiniz?

Night Road by Kristin Hannah (Gece Yolu)

Take what is given freely, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.

My First University:
When I submitted my magnum opus the critique of my supervisor Dr. Ernie Guptial was: “You write free and easy but with a tendency to toss in extra words or phrases which do not help in the understanding”. In spite of my tendency to be a multifarious Mozart, rather than a Bach with fewer words, I was asked by Professor Guptill to accept a position as a research associate working with him to study electron-tunnelling phenomena, a new field of physics, which had been opened up By Brian Josephson at Cambridge in the early 1960’s. A decade or so later the discovery led to a Nobel Prize for Josephson.

#Justice4Zainab – Stand Up Against Child Sexual Abuse

The Human Lens

Today we mourn the abrupt and chilling end of little Tainub Ansari that leaves many questions on the existing cruel indifference in our society on rape and child sexual abuse. A country where the numbers of such incidents keep rising; according to Sahil a non nongovernmental organization 11 cases of child sexual abuse are reported on a daily basis. 

What happened with little Zainub is a reminder to not only Pakistan but South Asia where sexual violence against girls and women in a norm accepted in society and in certain instances also having cultural approvals.

 is now trending, with every one demanding justice but still my question remains the same. Why we cannot protect our children and young people from falling victims to pedophiles, rapists and molesters? How many more little girls have to die in order for our conscience to wake up. When will we ever think along…

The future and Islam.

Try to get it!

People in general are always worried about tomorrow…they are always scared about their future…

Islam gives us a simple way to think about the future…a way that makes us happier and less worried about the comming moments.

Allah says in Al Hadid Surah(the iron)
No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: That is truly easy for Allah:

22. مَا أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي أَنفُسِكُمْ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مِّن قَبْلِ أَن نَّبْرَأَهَا إِنَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ

In order that ye may not despair over matters that pass you by, nor exult over favours bestowed upon you. For Allah loveth not any vainglorious boaster,-

23. لِّكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا عَلَى مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا بِمَا آتَاكُمْ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ

Have a good day.

Part 42:
My First University:
My Master’s work was completed in one year. The objective of the research was to perfect a method for measuring the conductivity of metals at liquid helium temperatures in order to determine their purity. At very low temperatures effects due to vibrations of the metal atoms are negligible, and most of the conductivity is a function of any impurities that are present…. In the course of the work, relaxation oscillations were discovered, which were reported later on in Professor Brian Pippard’s book: The Physics of Vibrations, published in 1978. A famous professor at Cambridge, Pippard had recently been knighted. When I had to respond to his request to cite my Master’s work, I was at a loss as to how to address him.

Love. 

!ns¡ght


Dunno what to say?

Why am I so numb today?

Was that you left me?

And you pledged that your return

Will never be seen in passing days.

Sanguine chats under the moonlight,

My eyes sparkled each time I saw you

The stardust and gush of amorous aurum,

How can it lay Rusted, lifeless?



Those moments are still alive,

Your smile and coaxing hues,

Created a pliant of the honest love.

Was it never quintessential?

But my heart ached, jostling me.


I wished I stayed away,

And never would have

fell in the cobweb of this

This obfuscating love;

An intricate serenade of heart.


Now you return whilst high tide

Where my heart is void of empty love.

Our togetherness sojourns in empty space.

Now your palatable heart,

Produce no exhilaration,

Though Your sky have many stars,

But mine cannot shine there.

You let go my love,

move on with…

Ban Slaughter and Consumption of Dogs in Africa’s Evala Dog Eating Festival

"OUR WORLD"

Thousands of teenage boys gorge themselves on dog meat each year as part of a festival in Africa. Countless dogs are brutally slaughtered for this purpose, and thousands of people put at risk of rabies. Demand that this practice be banned from the Evala festival.
