Unforgettable Walk of My Life!


Hello   precious  friends  hope   you  are   enjoying   you  lovely   life  sublimely  with   your   dear   loved  ones !




        Walking   is   best   exercise   as  it  is  said   by  doctors .But   some   walkes   stay   special   in        
   our  life   and    their  memories   last   in  our  
 heart  forever. 

  These  memories   work   as       therapy  when   our   soul   needs    mending   or   healing  from  any   visible   or   invisible   injury .

   I  had  a   weird   exciting   soul  .I  loved  moving  ,wondering ,wandering,thinking (lot) ,writing  and  walking .

I  mentioned  many   times   that   back   in  my  native   village   there  was  big   house   with   huge  

 front   yard   where   mom  had  a   quite   big   garden   area  .To   water   it   she   had   pipe  

 though ,   but   to   invest   my   energies   i   never   used  pipe  .Instead  of  pipe  i  used  to  fill  

 bucket  (which   was  almost   15kg  )   with   water   and  watered   the   all   plants  and  vegetables .

By   my   constant     telling  about   our   culture   may   be   you   know   that   girls  of  my  age  

 meant   to   learn   cooking    sewing    knitting   crochet   and   
many   other  art   works   to   prepare  their   dowry   .Unlike  

 them   i   was   interested   in  supports    ,reading  and   writing  

 along  with   gathering   lots   of  knowledge   about   life ,world ,  movies  ,media ,  games   ,politics   and  history  blah blah  blah .


 I   loved  running  round  and   round   inside  our  front    yard  ,as   a   bird   flips   and  flaps   restlessly   in   cage   to  

 find   the  way  . When  i  entered   in   my   teens  i   was  not   allowed  outdoors   but   only   for   wedding   ceremonies   or  

any   other   kind   of   parties   in   families   which  i   found   completely   boring .


Our   country   has   many   national   teams   of  women  for  various   games   among   which   i   found  athletics    most   appealing.

I   was   fascinated   by   running   ladies   as   fast   as   possible   while  watching  support   channels  !  It   was   compelling!

i   wanted   to  do  this  ,  wanted   to   run   as   fast  as  i   could   until   i  could   find   the  end  of  this   universe. 

Sometimes   i  would      practice       punching    in   sack   full   of   sand  and  get   my   hands   wounded  .I   loved   my   wounds !  In   sack   i  imagined   the  men   of   my   society  

 because   of   whom   i   was   caged   in   my     home   and  was   going   to   die  without  

 exploring   the   beauty   of   my   surroundings. How   painful   that   one  comes   in   this   world  

 and  can   not   EVEN   SEE   IT  THIS   FAIRLY    just    because   she   has   fear   of    oppression   or   abusing   behaviours  of   opposite     gender  .


But   life   gave   me   chance   to   walk   carefreely  later   when   i   got   married   and   had   a   friend   like   spouse  

 to   walk   along   with   me .  Here   it  is  not  necessary   that    husband   fulfill  such  

 childish   wish  (according to narrow heads)  of   his   wife  .Still   i   felt   special    and  blessed   when   one   day   hubby   took   me   to   the   walk   in   morning   and  it   ended     when   night   fell .

It   was   second   year    of   our   marriage  . Our   eldest    son   was   few   months  old   with   us   and  we   were  in  

Islamabad .  Winter    was   spreading   it's   wings   slowly  as   it   was  october  .Rains   were  often   and  sky   was   moody   with   changing   shades !

One   morning   after   breakfast   when  my     son    was   sleeping   in  cradle  .Hubby   asked   me   to   go   for   walk   with   him   . I   asked   my   mom   to  take   care   of   my   son   and  left   the  prepared   milk   bottles   in   heating  pot ..


Islamabad   is   beautiful   city   surrounded   by   margalla    hills   and  weather  is   magical .  Due  

 to   being  capital   it  is  very   well   designed   and    has   extraordinary   beauties   both   the    modern  architecture   and  natural !


While   we   taking  our   early   steps   we  both   were  not  aware   that   our   walk   will   be   as   long   ,romantic   and   unforgettable!

(With   the help of  google image  sharing some views of Islamabad among which we  walked like never !)























There   was  long  shing  roads   with   heavy  noisy   traffic  ,   high   buildings  ,lashing   sceneries    but   we   both   were   walking    lost   in   each   other    ,our   talk   was   endless   as   it  will   never   finish   and   everything   was  JUST   ABOUT   TWO   oF   US   as  we   were  the  only   living   beings   on  planet  !


I   still   remember   that   almost   23   years   back   that   day   was  most   beautiful   day   for   us   ,as   it   was   meant   to   be   and   rise   for   us  . We   walked   along  for  hours   unconsciously   ,crossed   the  many   features  of   city   almost   half   city  went   under   our   feet   that   day  .


It   rained  slightly   in   the   way   and   we   had   no   umbrella  .   Then   we   walked   into   a   very   famous   ice cream   parlor   that   we   found  front  of  us  that   moment  .   There  was  coffee   available   too   but   first   we   had   ice   cream   while   looking   at   the   foggy   green   hills   around   the   city  .

If   i   put   out   that   day   from   my   life   these   25   years   of   our   married   life   will   be   incomplete   .

That    day    our   attraction   and   exchange   of   countless   words   laid   a   strong    deep   foundation   of   our   life   together.

When   life   got   hard   due   to   some   mother   in   law   issue   and   tension   raised  between   us     that   was  the   magic   of   that   ONE   PERFECT   DAY  of   our   life  that   saved   our    relationships   from   getting   worse !


That    day   when   we   returned   home   it   was  almost   9 pm   and  mood   of   mom  was  not  good   obviously , Though   she   praised   my  son   for   being   good   child   and   not   tiring   her   much   as  he   seemed   to   let   his   mama  and    papa   have   time   together   .Because  here  women   hardly  have   such   chance .

Though   women   can   wander   along   with   their  girlfriends  ,go   for  shopping   movie  or  else   but   in  

 middle   class  family   such   time  (walking as  couple ) is    luxury   for   which    which     loving   hearts   can   starve   only  .

Men  of  this  particular   class  go   on  joint   family   picnics   though  but   holding  wife's   hand  and   wandering   on   

city   by   feet  is   out   of  their  imagination .  Though   traditions  are   changing   and    couple   prefer   to   live  

 separate  after   marriage   so   interference   by   in   laws   is  less  .But   my  man   is  special  and  i   am  grateful   for  this  to   God  who  blessed  me  with  such   caring   and  congenial   life  partner!




                                                                  While  having  evening  tea !

                                                Looking  at   the  small  garden  in  breezy  eve!


                    Enjoying   the   sunset  and   serenity  of   moments  that  speak  silently !

                                        Receiving     the    colorful   smiles    of    nature

                                                      from  other  side looks  more  blooms

                  These   naughty   blooms  love  sun  so  uch  and  disappear  before evening

                                    Life   is   beautiful  if  we  count   the  blessings!

Wishing  you  all  a  happy   and  healthy  life  dears!

take  lots  of  care  and  stay  positive  in  odds  to  turn  them  in  rewards !

God   Bless   You   All!!!

  1. How lovely you have such a wonderful husband as your life partner. It seems you are both made for each other. I love walking but running not so. I've never really understood the term 'fun run', even as a young girl. I have enjoyed reading this post, Baili and the photos, especially those of you and your husband. Islamabad is a lovely city, isn't it. May you have a lovely week, lovely lady.

    1. Thank you dear Kim!

      Most of the women less like running or sports either.

      I was little different from my fellow girls .you can call me Tom boy type then.

      I still love walk and in my life I had few weirdly looong walks that i took for purposes then and feel proud of myself for that.

      In evening I take walk atleast for half hour in my front yard daily.

  16. This is a nice story of you and husband's walk together. A memory that you will cherish always. What a sweet picture of the two of you, Baili. I smiled when you said as a young girl you didn't want to stay inside and you wanted to run around outside and explore. My older sister stayed inside a lot helping my mom, but I was outside building dirt forts with my imagination and going hunting with my dad. : )

    Wishing you sweet October days, Baili.

    1. Thank you dear Sheri!

      yes i wanted to be outdoors wandering and wondering just like boys do ,i was so jealous of them as they could stay and play out where ever they wanted but being girl i was housed as i reached in my teens.That was unfair and still is though so many things are changed and women have better and safer environments in outside world.

  21. It does seem very unfair that women are not allowed outside their homes, and I am so very, very glad that you found your husband agreeable to taking long walks with you. The beauty of the natural world is not for some people only; it is for everyone. What lovely pictures of you and your husband. You look very happy and comfortable together, which is what a married partnership should be!

    1. Dear Jenny!

      IT'S NOT THAT WOMEN ARE NOT ALLOWED OUTSIDE.

      THEY ARE ALLOWED, THEY STUDY THEY GO FOR SHOPPING AND THERE NO BERRIES TO THEIR FREEDOM AT ALL.


      BUT UNLIKE WESTERN WORLD OR EUROPE WOMEN DON'T EXPOSE MUCH .

      THEY COVER THEIR BODIES COMPLETELY.

      SOME COVER HALF OF THEIR FACE BECAUSE MEN OUTSIDE ARE NOT AS LIBERAL AND COOPERATIVE IN STREETS AND MARKETS .


      I MEAN BEING MUSLIM COUNTRU HERE IS STILL CONCEPTION OF WOMEN IS LIMITED TO MOSTLY DOMESTIC LIFE.


      YOUNGSTERS FALL IN LOVE BUT CANT EXPRESS OPENLY.

      HUSBAND CAN'T HUG HIS OWN WIFE FRONT OF OTHERS AS PEOPLE THINK IT IS SHAMEFUL TO EXPRESS YOUR PHYSICAL RELATIONSHIP BEFORE OTHERS .
