Is it my fault to be a Girl
Khushbakht from Ghizer Yasin was moved to karachi in 16 Feb 2017 to perceive her dream as a nurse and serve humanity, despite knowing the fact that she has to face a lot of challenges as a girl in this society. She was living with her sister in Ali jiwani. She strive hard and got admission in a course as a nurse assistant in Saifee Hospital, North Nazimabad Karachi and recently she started her job as an NA in the same hospital. On Friday at 12:30 PM she woke up and prepared for her job,wearing her uniform with the zeal of serving humanity left Ali Jiwani towards her hospital and disappeared. unfortunately she didn't have cell because it was snatched from her few days ago so her arrival according to her schedule at home was 9:00 PM. On Friday when she didn't reached home her family started contacting her friends and then they came to know that she didn't attended hospital that day, within few seconds they started searching in every place they can and they contacted police station. On further investigation her family came to know about an incident in Hospital which happened few days ago. They went to hospital for CCTV footage of that day but they refused to show them.Today is 5th day after her disappearance and their is no any clue. Now its time to raise our voice for our sister and daughter Khushbakht. In this developing era security for women is a big issue,so if today we didn't raise our voice then tomorrow may be we,our sisters or any daughter of a father will become victim of this cruel society.

Who's read a good book lately that they can recommend to me?
During my 5 days in Phander, Pakistan the weather looked like this almost all the time.
Contrary to what my photos may look like, there was an unusually cold and rainy spell going on in the region.
Thick clouds blocked the sun, and all anyone in Phander could talk about was how freezing it was given the time of year 😣
Aside from the fact that my fingers and toes felt like they were going to fall off, I kind of enjoyed the gloomy weather.
It was a good excuse to linger beside Phander Lake or hide under blankets on the porch of my guesthouse and get lost in a good book. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara in this case.
On drizzly days I'd read and write during the day, stroll around in the mornings and afternoons to get my blood flowing, then burrow under blankets while chatting with curious locals under the starry sky at night.
Adventuring under the sun is my MO by far, but I think slow rainy days every once in a while are just as important.
Most people visiting Phander Valley just pass through or spend one night there. I ended up spending 5 nights there 😅
The locals I met were delighted that I was spending so much time in their village, and took immensely good care of me as a result.
One morning I wandered outside with no specific plans for the day. My guesthouse's owner saw me walking around aimlessly and invited me to come with him to a higher village an hour away called Teru.
Why not? I hopped on the back of his motorbike and we started off on our grand adventure.
He'd heard me asking about trekking trails the day before, and though his English wasn't the best he understood that I wanted to go a bit into the mountains.
Upon reaching Teru he asked everyone where the best trail up the mountain was, then led us on a merry jaunt up the mountainside through farm fields and grazing pastures filled with sheep.
We were both huffing and puffing from being woefully out of shape and walking at more than 3000m above sea level, but we laughed it off and slowly carried on.
Together we scrambled up rocky outcrops, got lost on the winding dirt roads through the village, and had tea and a very dairy lunch with a shepherdess in her hillside home.
Returning to Phander he even tried to convince me to drive us both back... then he snatched the bike back from me after seeing how rusty my motorbike skills are 😂
It restored my faith in Pakistani men. We had a fun day out as friends without things getting creepy or uncomfortable.
Days like these and people like him are what bring me back to Pakistan over and over again.
