This is Junaid, Pakistani by national, Engineer by profession, Muslim by Religion and human by nature. I started writing to sort out my thoughts just to understand why I have been sent to this world. I have always wanted to be a good writer to the level that people could understand what is buried inside me, how I see the world and how I want the world to be.
But it’s been more than 26 years since I put my first feet in this world; still my mind is not able to understand its creation and existence. May be my participation in blog sphere will pave a way for me to write, to meet and to understand the very existence.
This was my informal introduction. Formally, I was born in 1984 in my home city of Lahore, in the lovely country of Pakistan. This makes my constellation of Sagittarius and Chinese zodiac of MOUSE; I don’t know I shall be proud of it or … but one of my friend convinced me that MOUSE is considered as the leader zodiac animal in Chinese legend. Though I don’t believe in zodiac and constellations, but it was interesting analysis about my personality.
I passed my secondary school level in year 2000, just between us I scored highest in my school among boys and girls and was awarded scholarship for being in the highest 60 students all over Pakistan. After passing my higher secondary in 2002 with second position overall, this time one girl took over me, no hard feelings by they way; I got admission in the largest and oldest engineering university of Pakistan University of Engineering and Technology Lahore. I did my bachelors in electrical engineering with majors in Electronics and Communication in the beginning of 2007. No doubt these 4 years were most exciting and learning period of my life.
In 2007 I entered the so-called practical life, the real world where I met many people just like me. After doing small job in one telecom subcontractor I joined ZTE Saudi Arabia branch in March 2008. Woking in world largest telecom vendor with more than 80,000 employees around the world is definitely an exciting and thrilling experience. I hope working in ZTE, blogging and writing for ZTElite might help me understand the world.
You people might be thinking after reading this article that Junaid is crazy, this article doesn’t make any sense. But what can I do, these stupid things go through my mind all the time.
So the story I want to share is that, today I left my laptop charger at my office. Yes!! My laptop charger, not my wallet, not my official documents, by LAAPTOOOP charger. Then I had to go back to office to pick it up as my laptop battery is not healthy enough to live more than two hours.
I came home and turned on my laptop to skype with my family back home. I searched my bag but wasn’t able to find the charger. If I want to chat, I got to have the charger otherwise I will be disconnected very soon. So I took my car and started driving towards the office. It took me almost one hour to reach my office with congested traffic and crazy drivers on the road. When I reached my office, entered the building and looked for my charger. Got the charger but found couple of my friends there doing overtime, chatted with them for couple of minutes asking what they are doing and how is their work going. Talked little bit about and what projects are going. On my way out of the building greeted the security guard, went to my car and started driving back home, again one more hour drive with crazy traffic. On my whole way I kept on thinking what the point of this? What have I done within these two hours? What I achieved by doing this? Seems like there are many things we do which are pointless, having no meaning and having no reason on the face of it.
We have always been told that time is an essence and we should be utilizing ever minute of our lives productively. So what the productivity of the one hour I spent to go back to work, chatted with couple of friends, took my charger, hello hi the security guard and again drove back to home. Don’t you think I have wasted almost 2 hours of my day for nothing?
Everyone have such non-productive hours in their day. Like I said going to work in one hour, why can’t I just fly to work or appear automatically without wasting any time. Like cooking, why can’t I just by magic cook my meal in a second so I can save hours of my cooking time? Like trying to write good article for more than an hour, but still not able to. I hope someone can explain me these parts of our lives.
