Absolutely Not or Why Not?

The timing of a recent #advertisement campaign by one of the top slot beverage company is no #mistake! For ages this company has been marketing its product as a representative of #youth #swag and coolness. Luckily I had a chance to work for IAL Saatchi and Saatchi for a month and took a peek at their advertisement campaign development cycle during their show “Battle of the Bands”۔ Although they have outsourced an agency but it was of no surprise to witness professionalism at each and every step of it from #conception to execution. Each c oncept and idea is properly discussed and studied along with a projected #feasibility of its impact on target audience. Finally after hours and hours of constructive,creative and critical discussion the creative, #branding and agency units secure the action plan. Under such work flow it is very difficult to make a #mistake.

Now in a nation where majority of the reactions against anti-Islamic global incidents ends up in unofficial banning of foreign soft #drinks, how can the marketing department launch a #campaign with a punch-line which is the exact reply to a famous statement of Prime Minister #ImranKhan in his recent interview to #CNN. In the interview the host asked about the willingness of the Government of Pakistan to provide space to the US government during Afghanistan war and the PM Imran Khan clearly replied “Absolutely Not”. From print media to electronic media to digital, this reply by the PM was talk of the town. It remained a top twitter trend for almost a week. One of the core reason for its popularity was that this was the first time that someone representing #Pakistan, stood aggressively against the winds to refuse proclaimed super power of the world. For the first time Pakistan was represented globally as a courageous nation that is aware of its good and bad.

Being the representative of youth of the nation this soft drink beverage company has launched a campaign “Why not meri Jan” right at the time when PM’s statement “#Absolutely Not” was leading the trends. Now the million dollar question is why would an international company with such a professional, #creative and secure work flow would approve such a campaign that contradicts the #government’s point of view.

(Bottle packing، billboards، TVC،Radio branding of pepsi)

The beverage company has released two #songs on this theme. This media is being punched and pumped into satellite and digital media in high frequency۔

The Forbidden Fruit


The #forbidden fruit of #heaven, the first #sin that originated the sense of #shame on the canvas of life, must have been #sexually attractive and full of #lust.

Have you ever felt ashamed?

The pain of molested privacy by unfolding secrets.

Free Masonic Bud

Secrecy is not always #evil. In this art I have tried to project the #FreeMasonic #society in a fresh clean green manner.

The Society

Unaware of the inborn #filths, the #society will never get tired of #judging others.

Nature Heals

Nature always manage to #comfort #soul, all we need to do is to sit back #relax and #observe silently

This picture bloomed a cocktail of ideas in my mind wrapped with nostalgic feelings of my childhood. Finally after some decent input I concluded the image in following manner.


Candy Fly

Up above the world so High
Morning Booze is like a Fly.
Short, full of colors and always wrapped in filth and guilt.


Reminds me of my childhood when there used to be a lot of attractive and eye candy magnets around us, but we were always told to stay away from them for one reason or another. “To the childhood…”

Our Planet in the rehabilitation

Detoxifying for almost two years, mother earth is celebrating its second spring in Corona rehab. Looking at the quality of flora and fauna one can easily claim that such pandamic was Kuch needed to give our planet a break from pollution. The colours of the spring are brighter than every before. Some random clicks of the spring 2021 in Islamabad.

کیا پانی سر سے گزر گیا ہے ؟

گلوبل وارمنگ سے زیادہ بڑا مسئلہ ، موسمیاتی تبدیلی کو سنجیدہ نہ لینا ہے۔
موسمیاتی تبدیلی سے متعلق حکومتی اور انفرادی سطح پر بارہا اور ہر ممکن کوشش کی جا چکی ہیں
کہ شائد لوگوں میں فکر کی چنگاری جلائی جا سکے
پر حقیقت یہ ہے کہ لوگ سچ سننا ہی نہیں چاہتے

کلائمٹ چینج پر کنٹرول پانے سے متعلق تمام تر باتیں بورنگ اس لئے لگتی ہیں کیونکہ ہم حقیقت سے دور نفی کے فیز میں زندگی گزار رہے ہیں۔

ہم جانتے ہوئے بھی ممکنہ تباہی سے انکاری ہیں۔

اگر آپ کو پتہ لگے کہ آپ جس سڑک سے گھر جاتے ہیں وہاں کسی وجہ سے ٹریفک جام ہے تو یقینا” آپ کوئی متبادل روٹ اختیار کریں گے۔
مگر جب میں آپ سے کہوں گا کہ آنے والے سالوں میں آپ کے پاس سانس لینے کو تندرست ہوا نہیں ہو گی تو آپ ایک کان سے سن کر دوسرے سے نکال دیں گے۔

ایسا کیوں ہے؟
اس سوچ کے پیچھے سب سے بڑی وجہ ہے ہماری خود غرضی۔
سب یہ سوچ کر ایزی ہو جاتے ہیں کہ

“ہمیں کیا فرق پڑتا ہے؟”

“آنے والی نسلیں جانیں”
“ہماری زندگی میں تو اس کا کوئی اثر نہیں ۔”

ایسے تمام بھائیوں کے لیئے میرے پاس ایک بری خبر ہے

کلائیمیٹ چینج کے اثرات تیزی سے رونما ہو رہے ہیں ۔

یہ ماسک جسے آپ پہن پہن کر اکتا گئے ہیں سن دو ہزار تیس تک اسموگ کی وجہ سے آپ کی زندگی کا مستقل حصہ بننے جا رہا ہے۔
اسی سال تک دس کڑور لوگ زراعت میں کمی کے باعث غربت کا شکار ہو جائیں گے.
تقریباً ڈھائی لاکھ افراد سالانہ موسمیاتی تبدیلی سے پیدا ہونے والی بیماریوں کی وجہ سے لۡقمہِ اجل بن جائیں گے ۔

یہ تو تھی دو ہزار تیس کی بات ۔
سن دو ہزار چالیس تک پوری دنیا کا درجہ حرارت دو ڈگری سینٹی گریڈ سے تجاوز کر جائے گا۔
جس سے پاکستان سمیت دوسرے ممالک کو سالانہ کئی سیلابوں کا سامنا کرنا پڑے گا۔
دوسری طرف دنیا کی مزیدآٹھ فیصد آبادی پانی سے محروم ہو جائے گی۔

سمندر کی سطح ساٹھ سینٹی میٹر تک بلند ہو جائے گی اور کئی ممالک رہنے کے قابل نہیں رہیں گے۔
اس سب سے پیدا ہونے والے مالی اور معاشی نتائج کئی جنگوں کی وجہ بن سکتے ہیں ۔

یہ آنے والے بیس سالوں کی کہانی ہے !
جسے لکھنے والا کوئی اور نہیں
ہم خود ہیں۔

صرف بیس سال !

Margalla National Park – “Track V”

Was such a challenge-ingly hectic yet soul refreshing experience on some of the stiffest hills of “#Margala National Park” .

Well it was one of those experiences when you have not been given enough time to anticipate the experience or to do your calculations before concluding to any decision … Hence I agreed to go on a hiking trip with my co-workers…

We went there and it was quite a surprise !

Freshly baked oxygen; detoxing mind and soul…

Smell of green starch; Connecting to the nature.

The sound of the no sound; the piece of the inner peace.

All this simply cuts you off from the world.

A one line summary would be, “Disconnected with the world; Connected with the Earth”

Well the #trail started with an energetic attitude and the overall experience was a multi dynamic cocktail of fresh energy, wild uncertainty and courage.

During the journey the moment the first fresh water stream passes by, the challenges start to mature along with your anticipations….

The tracks are well maintained and they act very well as your only tour guide; Ensuring you are on the right track.

The noticeable presence of #honey bee, birds and #spiders, far away from the metropolitan life of the city, were showing positive and pleasant sings of the post #covid-19 wildlife.

Based on my experience, I would highly recommend following “Must to do” instructions for track 5.

-Although I would recommend all to have an energetic company alongside for constant motivation but being alone in the forest has its own perks.

-There should be at least one litter bottle of water alongside, as you will be needing a lot of watter especially during the second half of the climbing phase.

-Your mobile should be fully charged for the sake of mobile torch and don’t worry as no-one will buzz you since its a mobile signal free zone.

-Do NOT wear casual floats, formal shoes or flip flop for hiking as other than joggers all other options will fail big-time.

-Do carry a cap or a hat, if hiking during bright sunny day as the second part of the climbing phase is mostly shade-less with chances of getting sun burns.

-If lost follow the sunset (West) it will eventually lead you to the road from sheer you can easily grab a taxi. (There are a lot of cabs on the other side of the road and they charge approx 400-500/ PKR to drop you back to the parking lot)

Bringing your children along is not a good idea if your planing to complete the entire length of the track same goes for old people. However they can easily travel till the mid way fresh water stream which indeed is quite a good spot to take a break .

I believe the social media talks about the leopard sightings should be taken seriously although my entire experience was secure and safe.

Oneway hiking of the track will take approximately two hours to complete.

I would highly recommend everyone to at least try this adventure for once in their life.

I also like to thank SAPM Ministry of Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam for awarding margalla hills a National Park status by making it part of the 15 National Parks that are protected and preserved through “Protected Areas Initiative “.

I would love to visit the remaining 14 of them!

Photography in quarantine

In future people would say that there was a time when the entire #planet stood still, shocked and helpless.

When the pride and the confidence of “understanding the #nature” was shattered away . When the world was too busy in studying the black holes, millions of years away, unaware of inhouse unfolded #disasters.

The outbrak of #Covid-19 #Corona virus has lead the entire world population towards #catastrophe .

For the first time world population realized the true meaning of fear on a #global scale….

This Thanos inspired #virus is finally here to wipe off the weak and old part of our society to keep the dice of nature rolling,

Scientists say that till the discovery of actual #cure … self #isolation is the best course of action.

During the #lockdown spell of corona 2020 (covid-19) since there was not much on my plate to do so I decided to do #photography on the roof of my house back in #Lahore.

I love the experience…!

These are the images that I recently took aprox two days ago from the roof of my house.

One can clearly observe a sudden change in the response and mood of the surrounding animals especially birds. They seemed a lot less afraid of us than they used to be. I mean posing for my shots is usually a very patient thing to do as I do take alot of time in capturing frames.

I am sure lack of hoteling and dinning in hotels will be reducing a large amount of food wastage, ultimately resulting in less food for birds and rodents through trash.

I wish I could ask them how is it going out there and when do you think all this will be over … (April 10, 2020)

Learn how to install and play PUBG on window PC instantly.

PUBG is an online gaming server where users from all over the world login to play a single person shooter combat.

The ultimate goal is to stay alive till the end of the game and attain maximum kills.

Each player enters the game through an airborne dive on an island without any weapon.

Players walk and run-through buildings to collect weapons and kill other players that appears on their way.

After a certain time the players have to switch to different zones marked by two blue circles on the map to stay alive.

The inner circle marks the safe zone whereas the health of the players lying outside the external circle (second circle) keeps decreasing.

The purpose of this zone identification system is to encourage traffic flow of the players and to discourage the “hide n seek” phenomenon.

This game is a mixture of Counter Strike fighting pace combined with versatility of GTA game play, enabling it to be the fifth most sold game in the world.

Considering the fact that majority of the players are downloading and playing it for free (through cheat) on PC, I believe that it ranks number one most purchased game in the world.

Some experts say it’s a down sized version of fortnight.
