Aliza Brohi ... A Ray of Hope for Girl Education in Pakistan



       ایک پاگل لڑکی !


ALiza Brohi, Saving Future Girls School


جن کے مظبوط ارادے ہوں پہچان اُن کی
منزلیں آپ ہی ہوجاتی ہیں آسان اُن کی
وہ پرندے جنہیں منزل کی لگن ہوتی ہے
ایک پرواز مسلسل ہی  ہے پہچان   اُن کی



علیز ہ کا نام سُنتے ہی یہ شعر بے اختیار میرے ذہن میں در آتاہے۔ جی ہاں علیزہ بروہی ایک دبلی پتلی درمیانہ قد کی لڑکی جس کے بُلند حوصلے اور مظبوط ارادے اُس کی بڑی بڑی خوبصورت آنکھوں سے صاف عیاں ہوتے ہیں۔بڑے بڑے لوگ بڑی بڑی باتیں کرتے رہ جاتے ہیں اور اس چھوٹی سی لڑکی نے ایک بہت بڑا کام صرف اپنی مسلسل کوششوں اور مظبوط ارادوں کے ساتھ مکمل کیا۔ گو کہ ابھی صرف پہلے سیڑھی پر قدم رکھا ہے لیکن کہتے کہیں کہ ہزاروں مِیل کا سفر صرف ایک قدم سے شروع ہوتا ہے۔


ایک ایسے معاشرے میں جہاں اچھے اچھے خاندانوں میں بھی لڑکیوں کی تعلیم کوغیر ضروری سمجھا جاتا ہو وہاں سڑکوں پربھیک مانگتی چھوٹی چھوٹی معصوم بچیوں کو سڑک سے اُٹھا کر اپنے گھر میں واقع ایک کمرے پر مشتمل اسکول میں لے کر آنے اور ان کو تعلیم دینے کیلئے اُس نے جو پریشانیاں اُٹھائیں اور جن رُکاوٹوں کا سامنا کیا، ہم اُن کا تصوّر بھی نہیں کرسکتے۔اُس ایک کمرے کے اسکول سے لے کر ایک چار کمرے کے اسکول تک کا سفر بلاشُبہ اس نے اپنے بلند اور مظبوط 
ارادوں کی مدد سے ہی طے کیا، لیکن یہ اُس کی منزل نہیں یہ تو آغاز ہے اُسے تو ابھی بہت آگے جانا ہے۔


سیونگ فیوچر کے نام سے بنے اس اسکول میں اس وقت ۱۰۰ سے زیادہ بچیاں تعلیم حاصل کر رہی ہیں۔ جہاں نہ صرف تعلیم مفت ہے بلکہ اس کے ساتھ بستے، کتابیں اور یونیفارم بھی اسکول سے فراہم کیا جاتا ہے۔ صرف اس لئے کہ ان کی تعلیم کا سلسلہ صرف اس لئے نہ ٹوٹ جائے کہ ان کے ماں باپ یہ اخراجات برداشت نہیں کرسکتے یا کرنا نہیں چاہتے۔ یہ تمام چیزیں فراہم کرنا علیزہ کے لئے جوئے شیر لانے سے کم نہیں تھا لیکن اس نے حو صلہ نہ  ہارا۔ کُچھ مُخیّر اور درد مند افراد نے بھی مدد کا ہاتھ آگے بڑھایا اور ناممکن کو ممکن بنانے میں مدد کی۔ لیکن ابھی اور آگے جانا ہے۔ علیزہ سے بات کرتے وقت میں نے اُس کے لب و لہجہ میں نہ صرف اُس کے ارادوں کی پُختگی دیکھی بلکہ اپنے اسکول کی بچیوں کیلئے اس کی بے لوث محبت بھی محسوس کی۔ اﷲ کرے کہ لڑکیوں کی تعلیم کے لئے اس کا جُنوں کبھی ختم نہ ہو اور اس چراغ سے چراغ جلتے رہیں۔

My Angels My Angels

Dreams Love and Relations
from the eye of an artist.
Blessings



Wow!!  That was my expression when I entered into thesis display hall at NCS Karachi.  The work on display at the North City School of Art  is anything but the work of this upcoming artist,  
Naveed Siddiqui  is amazing. His creative work on wooden panels is one of the first striking pieces when I entered in the school.

Fears and uncertainty in relations emanates in the work produced by the artist. His work was a personal statement. He took a cue from his life and expressed his feelings in a fanciful manner. The way he showed his dreams, love and a fear of uncertainty in relations, proved that imagination has no limits.

Naveed said: We have some relations in our life which have no significant recognition in our society but somehow those are the most considerable than anyone,  and for me, those are the best I have. In other words you can call them “Spiritual Relations.” In these art pieces I tried to portray my relationship with my loved ones and to express visually what these people mean to me.

The tagline of thesis attracted me a lot “My Angels My Angels”. For paintings, Naveed used oil on wood. He designed typical wall hanging painting style in standing form and divided paintings into different levels so that they could be tried to be understood through a particular angle which I found very interesting.
When I asked Naveed that why you chose angels and wings? He answered, I used angels and wings because they are the sign of purity and freedom which I found in some of incredible relations I have in my life.

Including me other guests have also commented effusively in the guest book.

Women can Bootstrap their Career too

Bootstrapping Your Career 

Bootstrapping your career 


Bootstrapping YourCareer is written by Hammad Siddiqui . A book about career development, Job recruitments, personal grooming and everything which can help you to boost not only your career but your life too. If you think that the book may contain a lot of pages, difficult tasks, and complex processes, then you are wrong, a book of 125 pages written in a very simple way.  Book based on real life experiences of Hammad sahib with daily life examples. He simplified the tangled processes in a very possible way.

The book has 8 chapters and every chapter is a masterpiece. From start to think about your career till grab your dream position,  this book will take you the place where you want to stay forever.   I found the situations and advises more acceptable for us because the book is written particularly for the Pakistani job market.

As I am a big supporter of Social Media, The chapter about social media attracted me a lot. I love the phrase “Your Network is your Net worth”. Readers will get excellent tips for the productive use of social media.

From the chapter about Tools, Trick and Techniques, I got the answer of the most difficult questions of the history of the interviews “Where do you see yourself after five years? “  I hope other readers will also get their desired answers from the book, like me.

Another thing which I like most is “Five biggest career regrets” in chapter 7, which can help to anyone for a better planning for career growth.

Chapter 8, the career questioned answered, is very interesting and readers can express well in their interviews by adopting these wonderful ideas.


Conclusion:  Bootstrapping your career is an exceptionally good helping tool for career development not only for the new comers but for the professionals too. Highly recommended for the masses.


Special Note :  Bootstrapping your career is an   “equal opportunity “ type book, means no gender restrictions, Girls , professional or nonprofessional women can also get help from the book to boost their career and life too.

I read an Article in Daily Dawn under the heading " Women in White "  found it really interesting , written by Ambreen Arshad ,  share here for my online friends.

Women in White 

Women in Pakistan Navy 



Seafarers have always been men, in all eras and cultures — be it as merchants, explorers, pirates or defenders. Is it the sea or the isolation at sea that makes it unwise for men and women to work in close proximity for days and months? Whatever it is, breaking the glass ceiling in the navy is not the done thing, except for a few countries, such as the US, where females are on board naval vessels working in different, traditionally male, domains.
Thus, understandably, women in Pakistan Navy have no combat roles to play. They are inducted in supporting roles in departments deemed more suitable for the fairer sex, such as education, medical, public relations, information technology, law and logistics. When inducted in the Short Service Commission course, they may not have the same career paths as their male counterparts but these ladies undergo the same kind of nine-month intensive training at the Naval Academy, which they undertake along with men. They are required to flex a few muscles while undergoing tough physical training that includes running, sprint, rope climbing, rope skipping, horse riding and swimming. Sailing and handling small arms are also part of their training now.
In addition, they also participate in practical leadership exercises, sports and co-curricular activities to further enhance their skills and strength, making them more suitable for playing their roles, though supporting ones, in the armed forces. Short Service Commission is of five years that can be extended/converted into permanent commission.
The first batch of females was inducted in August 1997, which comprised six females who specialised as pharmacists, dieticians, public relations officers and statisticians, while the latest batch of commissioned officers to pass out on June 30, 2013, had 10 women. But much before these women joined Pakistan Navy through proper induction in a course, many female officers have donned the white uniform whenever their services have been required, to be part of the traditionally more female-friendly corps — education and medical. The largest number of females in Pakistan Navy are inducted in the education department, followed by medical, where many are graduates of Army Medical College, Rawalpindi.
Women in Pakistan Navy have attained the ranks of captain (which is equivalent to the rank of a full colonel in the army) and most of the high-ranking officers are part of the medical corps. Cadet Beenish Zaidi, on receiving the Commandant Gold Medal when passing out from the Naval Academy, has proved that, like in the other branches of the armed forces, women have also stood out during their training period in the navy.
While recent years have shown much progress for women in the other two branches of the armed forces, with women proving their mettle as paratroopers and fighter pilots, they will not be taking to the sea in the foreseeable future as defenders of our sea frontiers. Keeping them safely on land, serving supporting roles and finding their own niche in clearly defined areas of work is all that the navy can promise its female officers.
But who can blame them for this discrimination? It isn’t that they don’t have faith in the capabilities of their female officers — they just don’t have faith in their male officers. (Isn’t this true of all males in our society, a feminist may ask!) Until male attitudes and views change — probably when hell freezes over — this cannot change.

First Women's Rights Activist in Asia

Ms. Fatima Jinnah

Ms. Fatima Jinnah

First Women's Rights Activist in Asia


Tall , lean , decent, sophisticated , a very well dressed white hair lady's very first introduction is , the sister of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of Pakistan.

She is Fatima Jinnah , a dental surgeon, biographer, states woman, and one of the founding leaders of  state of Pakistan, but here I want to point out her role as a women right activist. 


She was the first woman in Asia who found an exclusive female student association , " Women Students Federation " in 1941.   Fatima Jinnah also played a pivotal role in civil rights and introduced the women's rights movement in the Pakistan Movement. She founded the All Pakistan Women Association (APWA) after independence   which to date is functioning as Asia's top institution to serve and protect women's rights.


She herself became a role model not only for the Muslims women of South Asia, but for
the women of whole Asian society. she worked for the promotion of women’s rights and privileges in Pakistan under very difficult circumstances.
She is the name of wisdom and sacrifice and social service. she left all the riches and comfort of her life as well as her career as a surgeon, remaining unmarried and dedicated her life to serving the Pakistan and its people specially the women of Pakistan. 


We are all proud of Miss Fatima Jinnah. May Allah bless her soul.



Paying tribute to his sister, Quaid e Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah once said, "My sister was like a bright ray of light and hope whenever I came back home and met her. Anxieties would have been much greater and my health much worse, but for the restraint imposed by her"
