Caterpillar out of a Cocoon by Maryam Waheed

For other people in this world, my life may not be interesting but for me it is interesting because I do what makes me happy. I maybe just another person with a life but for me, it is my only life which I will get to live only once. This is the reason I want to live with to the fullest without any regrets and worries because life is too short for that. I know this sounds too clichéd and at times and I do not adapt to what I am saying, but I do try all the time and that is what really matters.

I am spending a life that is not much different from other people’s lives and I am currently not doing anything special but I plan to do so that can gain me recognition. Currently I am studying at Lahore School of Economics and completing my under graduation. My life revolves around my family, my studies and some close friends that take up my whole day. Hanging out with friends is occasional but only with a small group. I am very devoted towards studying because I feel it is a learning process that teaches you a lot and in order to be successful in life, being educated is very important. Coming to university means that you are coming to gain knowledge and learn so that is what I do. Apart from that my hobbies include baking, reading and I love spending time with my pets. Baking has been a passion since quite a while since I took Food and nutrition as a subject in O’levels and learnt a lot of cooking from that subject. Apart from that I have a dog that I spend a lot of time with.

I plan to start a job in the marketing department of a well known firm after I am done with my graduation. Along with that I also want to spend more quality time with my family and something for them specially my mother who is my source of inspiration. She is the woman who has made me who I am today and I want to make her proud of me. These are the things that mostly take up my time in life.


Life: A School, A Mission by Yasir Ashraf Bajwa

Sometimes you can read something or have a life experience that hits you over the head with its brilliance and perfection. A huge mind shift takes place, and your life is forever altered for the better. The important thing is the discovery of the purpose of your life and how you apply it to your life. Once you realize these great truths are out there, it becomes a lifelong challenge to discover more of them.

Life is full of crests and troughs and I believe that if your life goes smooth, there will be no fun in living it. Its not the about the time you have to spend alive on this planet, it’s a school in it’s self. Your age is not just the number of years you have lived; it’s the amount of experience you have gained.

My name is Yasir Bajwa and I am studying Marketing and Media with Marketing as my majors, at Lahore School of Economics. My hobbies are to enjoy life at every step and in every condition. Throughout the past twenty years of my period alive, I have seen quite a lot of variations in my life. I have seen the high times, and the low times, but I prefer the low times because they keep you active in search of the high times and while you are at it, you already learn a lot about life and people.

My most recent goal in life is to make other people’s living better and healthier. I started by searching for a way to make the provision of pure, clean, healthy water to the people of this nation easier as the first step in achieving my goal, as pure water is one of the basic and most important necessities of us humans. With success I have found the answer and have recently started promoting high quality water treatment systems in Pakistan. These systems run on solar or wind power and are designed and manufactured by a Swiss company which is one of the top in the world and is involved in the development of high efficiency water treatment systems and renewable energy solutions. Currently I am targeting large institutions, hospitals, NGOs and the government at all levels, that I can take in partnership to achieve my goal.

We all have been born with a mission to attain in life. I made mine to make this world or at least our own nation a better place to live in, a place where every one greets each other with a smile on their faces instead of attitude in their eyes, which unfortunately is the latest trend. I don’t think it is as difficult as we have made it.
