The First Pages

It’s almost mid of December 2016 and a new year will open up its gates soon. Life is going so fast, isn’t it?

It feels like you did something just few moments ago but in reality, it wasn’t just few moments. I feel the same whenever I look at the old photos of Uzair (my son). He is three and half years old now but those pictures in which he is just a little baby, reminds me how quick time is flying. Continue reading

A Young Mind Is A Young Tree

Is there a difference between a 5-year old kid, who is just about to get enrolled in a school, and a plant which has just burst open the ground to grow high?

I believe there is no difference. Both are young and they have so much to explore in a  new world, whether by opening their eyes or branching out with stems.

June 20 Challenge – Hello Ainee!

Day 20 Twenty Minutes

June 20, 1963. The United States and Soviet Union signed an agreement to set up a hot line communication link between the two countries. 

If you could have a hot line to any person, dead or alive, who would it be? Who would you want to chat with if you only had twenty minutes on the hot line? What would you tell them?


Hello Ainee!

You may not remember me but I do remember you so well, even after so many years. The last time we met was more than 25 years ago and yes, that’s a long long time. We were 5th graders back then, so it is okay if you have no memory about me or what happened the last time we met. Continue reading

A Shop Like No Other

Last year, during my early days of blogging, I posted about a little stationary shop in my area from where I used to buy all my stuff during my childhood.

That shop is still in business and since today is Uzair (my son’s) first day in school, so I find it appropriate to re-blog it. Because those days are now here when I would take him up to that same shop from where his father bought his pencils or erasers or rulers or colors and so much more.

Blog of Hammad Rais

Pencils, Erasers, Pencil Sharpeners, Geometry Tools, Pens, Rulers, Marking Pens. What does all these things have common? You might say school or a classroom or things a student need most. Ask me this & I will say just two words: Sweet memories
