Tour de` hostel

Saturday, February 17th, 2007

Its 7:00 in the morning. The sun is sodsc00549.JPG wonderful that anyone can predict of having a great day. Everyone in hostel is preparing to run off. Where? Destination is unknown. We were just told by hostel representatives to be ready for an enlightened and extended drive.

Just after a quick breakfast and having loaded with ourdsc00436.JPG drinks and Korma for lunch we finally departed. It was almost shocking for few of us to ride a coaster without a cassette player. Do you believe that? In this severe circumstance the cell phones were of great help and best utilized.

Time there and left for `hala`.We reached `bhit shah` in three hours with only one tea break at hand. This is a tomb of great and most famous Sindhi poet and Sufi Shah Abduldsc00470.JPG Latif Bhitai. We spent some another historical and Spiritual town of Sindh. This town is also famous through the subcontinent in Art, Pottery, wood works, Cloth printing, Woven cloth in various beautiful designs. We did some shopping and admired the market.

Had our lunch at road side café because we would have died On our way back to Kheenjher Lake also known as Kalridsc00566.JPG the next movement.

She prepared the synopsis for her PhD, which she was in the process of submitting to the University of Karachi for registration as a doctorate fellow.

Psuedo evil geniuses at work

How about…. Umm… Ok this really ultra genius friend of ours keeps messaging people stuff making really really nice jokes about our friends…!” – Rida, TMM1

So that’s for our sad long story. We still don’t have anything to write so we pester freshmen to contribute. Unfortunately or fortunately they are quite the evil geniuses themselves and come up with extremely creative ways to avoid writing for Quack!

And so shameless they are. This one keeps standing right here, interested, intrigued and curious about whats happening, happily giggling away in the bubbly mode she always acquires as I continue to type my saga of nothing much.

So we promptly ask her to join our team telling her that Quack! is all about you and us and the wider world and she soon tries to slip away by saying.

“Ummm… when does the third class start? 11:50 na?”

Don’t you worry, it’s 11 25 and you have ample time at hand. Poor Rida, can’t walk away or do anything about what’s happening with her. Anyhow, We’re running of space. Seems like Rida’s prophecy has come true. She has been spared because we’ve run out of space. But beware…

The Enduring Argument


Bravo for your insightful “God Vs. Science” debate between Richard Dawkins and Francis Collins [Jan. 15]. The discussion is not only important to Christians but to humans of other faiths as well. How can you compare God with science, which is merely a way of analyzing material things? Darwin’s theory of evolution doesn’t contradict the existence of a Supreme Being, since time and space have no relevance to God—our billion years could be a single moment to him. I disagree with Dawkins’ assertion that science doesn’t deal with metaphysics. Science is not in competition with God but is one way to approach him. That is apparently the experience of Collins, whose faith rests on reason. We require both religion and science to reach beyond ourselves.
