Eid Mubarak to all. Its Eidul Adha and as usual I was at home all the day, doing nothing. I watched a movie and surfed net, that was my eid. The only thing unusual was Mustansar Hussain Tarar's travel log Barfeeli Bulandian. I was reading him after a long time, after months. His unique style of writing always appeals me. His use of past simple tense to describe things as habitualized universal truths makes it something unique. I haven't studied his style very much but I have a plan to study his style properly. Uptil now I am learning Literary Stylistics, at the end of this semester I would like to have an analysis of some piece of writing of Tarar.

English has always been a remote language for me. I am just comfortable with it in Education domain. As I am studying Linguistics, mostly materials in our filed is related to English Applied Linguistics and we are taught using English. So I am very much familiar with English in my university and educational life and can write lengthy articles on my daily routine linguistics topics. But when case comes for writing on my blog, I always try to avoid it. Simply I can't gather courage to write on my blog. I want to make some money from internet and I know it would be possible by writing in English only but still I am unable to make it a routine to write in English. Once again, by this post, I am gathering my courages and to shed the hesitation and write in English. May Allah help me to do this.
