Sharing my world- May 23, 2022

Melanie, our wonderful host of SYW has posed these questions this week;

QUESTIONS

If You Could Be Best Friends With A Celebrity, Who Would It Be?

I like Garfield ( the cat) and would love to hang out with him. Having lasagna and pizza all the time , making Jon run errands for us!

What is, or should be, the main purpose of law?

To maintain order in the society, to protect the citizens against crimes/ criminals, to protect the rights of people, and to ensure that the society functions seamlessly.

Law should NOT be used by any government or party to pursue their own agendas. Using the law to subvert personal liberties is not right. ( Though mask wearing and mandatory vaccination are in the public interest and don’t benefit anyone group of people)

Do You Care About Reviews?

There are many types of reviews!

Buying something or engaging a service, one should read the reviews so that one can get a feel of the standard of the product. Because these are based on the experiences of the users.

Watching a movie, tv-show or reading a book, reviews aren’t that important as they are based on personal opinions rather than experiences. And we all have different tastes.

Is the ‘mind’ different to the ‘brain’? If so, in what ways?

I think Fandango said it the best. Brain is the hardware and mind is the software. Though these terms are sometimes used interchangeably too; “Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind!”

GRATITUDE SECTION

Overall how sunny is your nature? (Optimistic)?

Very sunny!

Perhaps too much as I manage to irritate my family by always looking at the positives in any given situation.

Thank you Melanie for these interesting questions.

  1. Thank you so much for Sharing Your World Sadje! I find your nature to be very refreshing because, sadly, most folks have become the exact opposite of sunny. It’s great to know a person who can find the silver lining in all those clouds! 😀 Very astute description of reviews, you covered all bases! 🙂 I love Garfield too, what a great choice of buddy! 😄 Also you have a great perspective of the law and what it ought to be used for! I love the photo too, such a lovely peaceful space! Are you traveling? You said “back in Lahore”..? If so I hope you’re having a wonderful time! Have a splendid week! 😀

    1. Thanks a lot Melanie for your kind words. This photo was taken when we went to Lahore for Eid, 3 weeks ago. We will be going to Lahore at the start of June when summer break starts!

  2. These are wonderful analysis. I bet o agree with most of your answers. If I’d have the chance of hanging out with a celebrity or simply having coffee, the first would have been Maya Angelou (may she rest in peace). Her writings and quotes have inspired my life since a kid. The second would be our very own Ngugi Wa Thiong’o, a prolific writer and mentor. Wes used his novel “The River Between” as a set-text in secondary school and I know to a great extent, he inspired me to involve culture, traditions and some bit of vetnacular languages in my writings. He is our literature hero. 🙏❤🙏
