Jaane na kahan woh duniya hai

“Jaane na kahan woh duniya hai

Jaane na woh bhi ya nahi

Jahan meri zindagi mujhse

Itni khafa nahi”

More than a week since I last posted. Its been a difficult and challenging last 8-10 days. Pressure every where. Work, life, health etc. I’m not one to rant on blogs but cant help it today.

Work has been killing me lately. Not the amount but the changes at work. Totally demotivating. Lets just say that despite getting promoted, I am going to make significantly less money in commissions as compared to the last 12 months. Several reasons to that. Our roles and powers have been made limited now. Our compensation plans have changed. And add the shrinking economy to that. All in all, its sucks!

Several other personal and domestic things are bothering me which I cannot mention here. Actually more than bothering, they are all disappointments.

Even my car, my prized Audi is giving me trouble these days. Some niggle in the gearbox and front left axle.

Only ray of light, only hope is my darling kiddo. He’s all that I actually look forward to these days. Always brings back the smile on my face.

And what is most disappointing is that, despite giving all that I have, all that I can, with every ounce of blood and sweat, I am still here. All I want is a simple and peaceful life. Stress, pressure, ups and downs are part and parcel and am aware and game for all that. But what I hate are the complications, politics, hypocrisy and the compromises.

I wish I could just get away from all this.

  1. time for a break i guess… !!!

    life gets to all of us at times …. !!!!

    just hold your kid for a while… hug him tight… you will feel better…

    if that doesnt help..

    hug your wife… as if i need to tell that… it surely will work !!! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. just yday i was telling amit that ur not to be seen around here.. n then he said u are visiting the doc..I hope things get better real soon.. all the best dear.

    go for a long drive, have a long heart to heart chit chat with iram and get yourselves some sinful icecream or anything that u both like. come back to face life, you will feel lighter, better. Or talk to your friends.. it helps.

    take care. cheer up.

  3. *********hugs************

    Take care of your health Masood! hope you are feeling better now…

    take care and cheer up…

    get your car fixed, go for a long drive… hug your wife, kiddo ๐Ÿ™‚

    and yea, as Tara says, eat ice cream or do some retail therapy! that always helps!! ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. Hey Come On, Masood !!! Life is never smooth sailing…
    Only during such depressing times, do we appreciate what we have got !!!
    So, no need to feel down – cheer up – spend some quality time with Ibbu and wife – then everything will look rosy and cheerful again.
    This is the best part of blogging – you open your heart out to your blogofriends and there you get all the moral support you want – and then you are back to normal again. Once, you have let the worries out, you become more light in mind and fresh for another challenge.
    Come on, Cheer up !!!

  5. Yes some days are like that Masood ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Do take care of your health, bad health can make many other bad things look worse! Things like cars and Jobs can be upsetting, I am sure you will be able to sort both the problems… Politics can be maddening!

    But our blogs are a good place to rant, you have all of us ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kiddos, like Monika says are our real stress busters. I used to have a list of ‘feel good facts’ for such times, just thinking about all the things that made me feel good were real mood uplifters.

  6. *super tight hugs*

    will ask God to give u more courage and strength masood…

    i hope this testing time passes out very soon and u can relax from al the disaapointments

    u take care of ur health okie?


  7. Hey, firstly I believe it’s a matter of immense strength to be able to express one’s pain!! I can understand and believe that when the phase is bad no amont of consoling helps..one has to face it. Just that is the fact! However, everything would be fine…trust me! Remember time heals ๐Ÿ™‚ and there’s always a sunrise after the sunset!!! Besides everthing, it’s the holy month of Ramzaan and God would surely take you through it ๐Ÿ™‚

    God bless you and your entire family!

  8. I know some days can just seem difficult..but they will pass,Masood.Yes our kids are our energizers ๐Ÿ˜€ !
    You take good care of yourself and when Ramadan is over go on a good much needed holiday during the Eid..it will rejuvenate you,I’m sure ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. this too shall pass…utilise this holy month to pray and it’ll help ease out your tensions…
    Thank Allah that you have a job….i read in the papers today that an ex- senior executive of an MNC was stealing laptops from conferences to earn his livelihood because he was thrown out of his job due to recession..
    Be strong..take a break and come back rejuvenated!!

  10. Assalm-U-Alaikum-Wa-Rahmatullah-hi-Wabarkatahu (May Peace & Mercy of Almighty Allah be with you)

    I guess changes @ work are every where, thanks to bad economy, So pay cuts, no appraisals, less commisions are everywhere resulting into more competition & rest will follow (complications, politics, hypocrisy and the compromises).. So bro I think u are not the only person going through this situation, more or less every one one of us is struggling to get out of it…. So I would say, cheer up and Enjoy every moment of life leaving everything behind…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Oh Masood! Hugs! Hope it all gets better soon.. I am sure it will.

    You are the third person in the last few days to tell me this.. Take care, and Baby Ibrahim and his antics will help you tide over this quickly.

    Take care

  12. hang in there dude. this too shall pass. we all have our phases. what is happiness and joy if not clouded with a little sorrow and struggle ๐Ÿ™‚

    take care

  13. You can make a post on all the good things happnd to you in recent past…it will definitely make ur mood happy…..

    and ya as all above said…there is no better stress buster than kiddos smile….the best thing happnd to us….is becoming proud parent ๐Ÿ™‚

    cheers !!

  14. I am late here,but i am sure you have come out all these.These are just passing clouds,they just pass away.
    Spend max time with the little ibu all your worries vanishes in a jiff.


  15. Masood, I am so sorry yaar for being late here. Can you add a RSS feed button to your blog? It doesn’t get updated on mine. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I just casually hopped here to find a new post which is not that new.

    Take care. Ramadaan and Iftar must be keeping you busy. When is Eid? 20th or 21st Sep? How is Ibbu doing?

    Stress and pressure are part and parcel of life. You know it is because of bad things, we are able to appreciate the good. Imagine if everything was so rosy…there would be no fun and we would get so bored.

    When you are so stressed, think about the best things in your life. Look at Ibbu smiling, talk to your wife, your parents. A loving family works wonders in such situations.

    Then there is also this virtual family and some tapori dosts. ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Its really refreshing to see a blog that is not vigilance these days (Yes, I am guilty too!!) but nice blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sorry to hear about work. All of us going through the grind I guess!

  17. Hey, can you tell me which movie is that song from “Jaane ne kahan woh duniya hai … “.
    I have heard this song only once on radio and haven’t been able to find the collection it is from.
