Hey fellow readers, I couldn’t keep up with my blog recently because my prelims were going on. These exams were really important. Now, finally I have got some time to blog again.
I recently interviewed a well known celebrity, who is smart, awesome, cool. The interview went well. Just kidding, I interviewed my 10 year old cousin. (She is not a celebrity)
I basically asked her some philosophical and abstract questions like “how would you define life?” “What do you think is death” etc. I would like to share some of the excerpts from the interview. Would you like to read how she answered?
Around 8 am, this puppy was sitting at our front door. He was cross breed, and was shivering. Maybe he was frightened by crackers burst on 31st December. We gave him an old shawl. He stopped shivering after I cuddled him, and slept peacefully. He was sleeping for about 4-5 hours so I got worried that he must be ill. I gave him something to eat and then he was energetic. He started jumping and all. I decided to give him for adoption, but sadly after posting his photos, no one enquired about him. In the evening,finally, when I decided to leave him somewhere, I found some puppies who looked just like him, I left him there, and I am happy to announce that he finally found his siblings and mother!! He was so sad the whole day, I was happy to send him.
When I gave the puppy something to eat and then went out for some time, my father came home. The puppy hadn’t seen my father, and he didn’t let him enter our house. My father was laughing, knowing that the puppy had come just 2-3 hours ago, was now bossing around him.
I recently read the book “I am malala” and got inspired by that. I wrote a letter to malala yusufzai, but couldn’t post as I don’t know her postal address. Anyways, I decided to post the letter here. Hopefully, she’ll stumble upon here, and read this. This letter is edited version of original letter.
Hello, how are you? I am a 14 years old girl from India. I read your book “I am malala” and found it interesting. I found it awesome that you fought for your and other girls’ basic right of education. I am so fascinated by your work, that I have made a poster about your work for our school’s Phalak Sajawat competition. Phalak Sajawat competition is our school’s competition. In which, each class has to choose a theme and decorate the classroom accordingly. Our class chose the topic “struggle” and I wrote about your struggle for education.
Do you know, the night I finished reading your book, I had a dream that I am eating mutton biryani with you! From then, I keepthe book with me while eating biryani.
I would really like to meet you, but I know it’s not possible because of Taliban’s threat to you.
So, which school/college do you go to now?
I go to aksharnandan school. I feel I am lucky to be in this school. Our school is great! And you’ll be happy to know that here, in India we don’t have to struggle for going to school.
You lived in Pakistan earlier, and now live in UK ( I don’t know for sure, I read somewhere). So what difference do you feel in UK’s education system?
Please reply to my letter, tell me more about your new school, friends etc. I have told my friends that I am writing a letter to malala, so I would like to show them your reply. If possible, give your autograph on the letter.
Dogs have been evolved from wolves. They used to live in packs. Pet dogs thinks of its family as it’s own pack and the owner, generally 1 or 2 people, is the pack leader. In nature, every animal that lives in groups preys on Animals, and brings it to the pack leader. The pack leader divides the dead animal for each member. Same thing happens here. The dog brings the food to you, as you are the pack leader.
But it’s not the same with cats. They kinda think of us as their young ones. After all, they are superior to us! So, if your cat ever brings you a dead animal, she is trying to teach you how to prey. She will further bring you half-dead Animals, if you are able to pass the test(!) , she will take you on an adventure of killing animals!
So, you better practice preying before your cat decides that you are a lazy fella.
Do you know, when a baby giraffe comes out of the mother’s womb, he falls on the ground from 10 feet generally on his back.
The baby giraffe immediately rolls over and tucks his legs under his body.
Here, mother giraffe teaches its baby a lesson of lifetime. She kicks him hard. The baby rolls over. She keeps kicking him till he doesn’t get up. When he gets up, she kicks for the last time, so that he remembers how he got up.
This is important for animals to survive who have to get up immediately after they’ve fallen.
“Next time you get kicked, baby giraffe, remember you have got kicked just so you remember how you got up. “
