Sensitively Brave Young Fellow, Muhammad Ali, 18, Pakistani Writer, beautifully described the agonizing truth …
Human being is one of the finest creatures of God. He is optimum yet so complicated. Life is a big struggle and the story of man’s scarification starts from a very fledgling age. He is one creature who has to compromise even his own self, to acquire his own uttermost desires. Especially, all those who belong to middling families. Boys from mediocre families are very much dejected due to their financial glitches. Their brawl starts from. They have to take charge even when they are not able to take it. Heart throbbing but truth – “this is how life is”, they say, but nevertheless, they believe when you have determination you can do anything in life and rise as a star.
I would like to narrate the story of a young boy of Karachi. Young, sensitive, daring and yes a part of middle class family. He is the eldest son, a brother and a fighter. He make little efforts for his family but if we compare those efforts to his age those efforts were “mile stone”.
Bright student with sharp mind. His parents always considered him as a hope for their family. These hopes were always courageous for him but yet sometimes he feared. It was the beginning of his fear which increases with his brilliant performance in class. Better results – stronger the hopes. Rather than enjoying his one and only life but he sank deeper into fear; always thinking about his future and family establishment. Each and every time he ponder about his family – result “depression, stress and anxiety.” None of his family member realized his despair but it was felt by his dad, because he passed through the same situation. The life goes on and this tension created a lasting impact on his mind.
When the boy turned 18 , depression took place as mountain but till yet it wasn’t noticed by anyone. His sacrifices for his family was taken as duty not as love. The boy tried his best every time for his family.
His name was Ahmed, Muhammad Ahmed. Sensitive, fighter and brave Ahmed – who was not probed by anyone about his wishes, his dream but only ordered by everyone to do like this , like that. One day he went to the market with his family for shopping no one noticed that he was not buying anything because he wanted to save his father’s money. He wanted to see his family happy. After facing huge problems in his life finally he completed his education, which wasn’t an easy journey for him. When he was searching for a job, it was a refusal every time. No one gave him job because he was just an ordinary citizen. He didn’t have any source or references, which is the major reason of unemployment in Pakistan.
After the refutation from many interviews his hopelessness level was reached to the peak and he tried to committed suicide. Fortunately, he was saved but many other students.
The suicide rate in Pakistan is increasing day by day which roots the lost of many valuable and intellectual minds. These students are the hope of their families but meanwhile the reason behind the loss of their lives are also their families. It’s not about the standard; it is about the about pressure. His life was a contant juggling between struggle and depression because of his family problems.
Life comes only once, it never gives a second chance, so let these beautiful minds bloom freely and happily. Their lives are also precious – same like yours.
God surely gives the strength to men of middle class than high society people but that doesn’t mean that we ruin their life for our own cause. It doesn’t mean that they don’t have the reason to live. It doesn’t mean that they have to strive just to breathe. It’s time to seriously think and stand for these brilliant 70% and let them show what they have.
