Marghdeen: I got this idea from Allama Iqbal a renowned poet and philosopher, who spent his life thinking of a place which will be free from poverty, corrupt government, wicked landlords, thieves and beggars.

Farmers would take care of their land and will not share the produce with landlords, they’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor without worrying about wicked landlords.

The residents will be able to own their home.

The school will be built to teach important subjects that will be beneficial to keep up with worldly affairs. No one will be left out.

The hospital would be built for the sick and also proper lessons will be given on how to live a healthy life.

A playground will be an important place to run around and play games.

A supermarket would have meat,fish,poultry and vegetables and grains and everything from tea coffee etc.  for the consumers.

A drug store will provide medication and other things.

A business center will provide knowledge to anyone who needs to know how to carry out their daily business.

Thieves and beggars will not be seen here,because the citizens will be self sufficient.

DP Challenge Weekly Writing Challenge: Staring Off Into Space

Whenever there are moments I have the leisure of sitting down, I think about me. What I have accomplished.What I missed. The people I’ve met, sincere and not. My life as a whole.

I studied as much as I could given the resources I had. There was one degree I wanted to get. Some how it didn’t happen. I had all the prerequisites needed to get in,I was even selected three times. Each time there was a different reason.

When I first received a letter of acceptance for the M.Ed. course I was excited. I had taken a teaching job only few months ago. I thought no problem ,I’d resign, unfortunately my resignation was not accepted. I was in my early twenties, I thought I’ll try next year.The following year I applied and was accepted,this time I couldn’t go because I received a scholarship to study in London. I was waiting for this miracle to happen. I postponed studying M.Ed. for next year.

I was again selected to study the third time, but missed it. I was married. I couldn’t try any more . I moved out of the country to join my husband.

When I think about how many times I tried and how the circumstances were never in my favor, I take solace in thinking maybe I was never meant to do that course.

I consider myself lucky for getting the chance to go for higher studies and come out successful.
