Social Media use, hype & fall


20 years back, i have heard that how people struggled to get positive fame in the society / country / world and there were very few opportunities available to show-up their talent. Like many stood at the gates of TV channel, film studios or visiting the houses of directors / producers to get a chance in movies, dramas, theater etc. But after the arrival of YouTube, Instagram, Whats app, Snap-chat, Twitter etc etc, many got fame and recognition without much struggle. They just launched their video or pic and got famous in the entire world within minutes and earning a lot from social media tools may be in millions.

But social media is not only helpful in earning and giving fame but also destroying your built image in some seconds. In some recent months, i have seen many top names went down and become a devil in the eyes of public who got hype through using the social media tools and their followers are in millions. About five days back, one Pakistani photographer/YouTuber/Videomaker graduate of NCA-Lahore lost his image when a girl leaked his whatsapp chat in which he used some sentences which people consider are sexual harassment. The person claim that someone used his photograph & name (he used to display) on twitter/Whatsapp and talked to the girl on his behalf whereas he was not involved in the conversation. There were some other girls who used the same allegation against him. Now, twitter is full with abusive language against him used by both male and female and the image he made after a long struggle being destroyed within 3 to 4 days.

The point i want to bring in your notice that if someone display a image against anyone and make allegations like sexual harassment etc etc then it is our prime responsibility to check that either those evidence based allegations are true or not. whereas, most of us start believing in the claims / evidences and then destroy anyone’s image within seconds by spreading it on social media with our perspective against the person. When we know that any image, video or chat can easily be built against anyone by using tools like adobe Photoshop or with available cellphone software’s on google play etc.

I was amazed to see how one face can easily be replaced with other face and you cannot judge it so as the chat, you can easily built and replace sentences with the real one in order to defame other or you can replace one body with other. So as the videos are, you can cut a certain portion and use it for different meaning or for the meaning you want to display against your opponent or for the one whom you don’t like or want to destroy his/her career.

When i started Instagram, i used my name and displayed it all on the photos so that other wont copy or used that in negative meaning against me but one of my friend informed that even if you can write your name one million times on the photos it is not dificult to remove that and can easily be replaced with other.

I don’t know when can someone destroy my positive image in-front of my followers / people who know me by bringing and developing false evidences / allegations by displaying it in-front of you and the question is that how i going to prove my innocence and whether you will believe in me or not.

The other thing that i want you to think about is the negative use of Metoo movement and everything is fired with one bullet i.e. Sexual Harassment. Unfortunately, this has been used negatively against the innocent males who have done nothing except maybe flirting / flirt chating. Mixing flirting with sexual harassment is another main fault of many people. If you are chating with anyone and using flirt language either by male or by female doesn’t come under the umbrella of sexual harassment which we normally mix it and use it for our purpose in order to malign other. The people used to chat share pics, use slang words, sexual talk etc are not to be count in sexual harassment. In my opinion, sexual harassment only occurs when two people are physically present with each other and the other person tries to touch your (others) body without his/her consent. But we put everything in one plate in order to get benefit and other manipulate it according to our own desire.

Minutes are required in destroying honor / image / fame and years are required to built or re-built it again

If you can easily drive a car in cities of Pakistan then driving will not get difficult in any part of the world…


People claim that if anyone can easily drive a car in Pakistan then driving will not get difficult in any part of the world. Especially in the oldest parts of Lahore city, Karachi, Rawalpindi oldest areas like Mall road, Peshawer and many others.

There are number of reasons that why driving in Pakistan is difficult then that of other countries. Congested roads, huge number of vehicles include motorcycles, rickshaws, loaders, chingchi (also called moon car), luxury cars to oldest cars having age of 80 years, tractor & trolleys, buses and what not.

Majority of the drivers have no sense of diving especially commercial vehicle drivers and Rickshaw divers are on number one position. The drivers obey law only in front of the Traffic Police Officers and when they pass them then they don’t. About 4 years back, no body have cared either they have driving licence or not but after some strong measures taken up by Traffic Police Lahore especially under the supervision of martyred CTO Lahore Capt. Mubeen , people went for exams to get the proper licence. Otherwise, licences were issued to people on the basis of there references / contact with government officials, by giving bribe to traffic officials and even you did’t need to come to the examination center for any type of driving licence exam, you can get it at your home (It happened in Lahore before 2012 or still happening in many parts / provinces of Pakistan).

One principle / thumb rule of safe driving in Lahore city;

You safe your vehicle and i save mine

More then new 200 cars and 500 motorcycles are registered in Lahore city each single day (reports). Government has failed to provide cheap public transport to the inhabitants in Lahore and it is difficult for the inhabitants to move from one place to other with that public buses which are few in number. The roads length & width are same and even taken up by the illegal occupants like shops / commercial buildings etc. Moreover, many high rise commercial building wont have parking floors within their area and they made shops by giving bribes to the building inspectors of government. So, the people used to park on roads make roads more stretch and difficult for drivers to drive properly.

Rickshaws drivers (small passenger carrier found in Pakistan, India & Bangladesh) hate to see left or right & they drive straight, so when ever you see them coming then let them go first & dont disturb them if you want to remain safe from a disaster.

Rickshaw

The other worst thing in Pakistan are the motorcyclists (not all but many) which is being drive by all types of age from 8 years old to 80 years. They violate law more then any other vehicle drivers especially they don’t care about signals either they are red or green except if Traffic Sargent’s are standing and have a ticket book in their hands.

You have to keep Rs.500 or more in your pocket for denting or painting of your car in case of any situation when other vehicle hit you from any of the sides or from back even if you are stopped on signal.

The attitudes of drivers are different and hardly any one is accepting his / her mistake of any violation or traffic accident. About three years back, i was moving from China Chowk to Jail road at Lahore when suddenly a pickup van having 7 to 8 school going kids wee coming in my direction as he was not allowed to use the same road in which i was driving. When i said “what are you doing putting your , school kids and my life in danger by taking short cut and violating law”, instead of accepting his mistake he stated shouting on me that he is on the right direction.

The other common thing in Lahore or throughout Pakistan is that all are in a hurry like they have participated in a race and ready to beat others at what ever the cost is. Vehicle drivers especially Rickshaw drivers and motorcyclists try to enter from the wrong side when ever traffic is blocked in order to get away.

Recently, i stopped my car on a turn because one women was crossing the road, another car coming from the opposite direction drove by a young boy started shouting on me that why am i not letting him turn. I was amazed to see that the boy was not seeing someone crossing and he was in so much hurry and lost his patience.

Debatable Lines – 37 (Does age gap matters in Love?)


Though, its a wise thinking in the society that two individuals (male & female) should be equal in age or have less age gap difference in order to fall in love and then marry. Because of equal or less age gap / difference, they can live a prosperous life together till death and can easily understand each others emotions / sentiments or any other physical requirements. Whereas, society is against those who fall in love or marry having a higher age difference / gap and consider it a sin or against norms / rules. For example, if a 50 & 20 years fall in love or want to marry then society (means we) posses many barriers through words or actions and do not let them do (love or marriage) easily what they want. Its not a matter of Pedophile where rules and law matters but we in the society link it with them.

Many countries may have this rule in their proper law books but i never studied in the books or come across that two individuals with biggest age gap can’t love or marry. On the other side, i have witnessed the successful marriages between these people. For example, one of the Professor having an age around 55 in my current university has married a girl with age around 20 and have a daughter living a prosperous life. The opinion of the students / faculty members of this university is very broaden and they support this type of intervention whereas, the opinion of students / faculty members of my previous university was narrow in nature & they never supported this. I also have witnessed one of my relative have an age of 56 married a 22 years girl now have four children’s and happily living a life since last 14 years.

In my opinion, love has no age boundaries nor depend upon color or ethnicity. What is the wrong if two people having a wider age difference fall in love with each other (its wrong if its-love is a one sided) and want to live together. They are not killing anyone except others consider themselves being killed due to their own fear that what society will say. It means we support majority due to our fear instead of supporting the right one who are in minority. We should broaden our minds & hearts instead of narrowing it down.

(You may agree or not)

Following are the results of survey being conducted on social media site where about 6251 participants voted either those individuals (male & female) having a wider age gap may fall in love & then marry or they are not allowed to means society is against it (wider age gap is not accepted by the society). Most of the participants who voted were belong to USA & some were from Canada, UK, India, Europe & Australia.
