He was imprisoned by Zia but released by Gen. Aslam Beig after Zia plane crashed on Hindu Shamshan Ghat on basti Lal Kamal on the historic 17 August 1988. He was released by his successor General Beig who restored his full military rank and honors.
He published his autobiography, The Story Of My Struggle, in 1991


Snow Angels | Poem By Arfa Karim Randhawa

3 Comments
Snow Angels
Snow angels dancing in the breeze,
Brother and sister fall on their knees.
They lay down in the bitter snow,
And figures of angels begin to show.
The pair giggle and smile at each other,
And each prays they will never lose the other.

Snow angels playing on the river,
Then the ice begins to quiver.
He lets out a dreadful scream;
She hopes it's just a dream.
She reaches out her hand,
But he slips away just like sand.

Snow angels in the white field,
A little heart looking to be healed.
She lays down in the bitter snow,
And a figure of an angel begins to show.
She lets out and sheds a tear,
Yet she will always hold her angel near.

Examining newspapers and blogs, It always ends up in politics sections this lead to ignoring some beautiful facts about Pakistan, that there are more than just killings and bombings in streets of Pakistan. Pakistan is country, enriched with a heritage of natural beauty that is so beautiful and variant that it is hard to surpass.
In a science fiction novel Calculating God By Sawyer, in which he mentioned Pakistan. It never came across my mind that any fictional writer might be scribbling about Pakistan on a topic else than the most acknowledged one that is off course the Terrorism. It was a surprising to see writer mentioning Pakistan in context of its beautiful and abundant types of flowers.

Mr. Bill Gates | Poem By Arfa Karim Randha

1 Comments
 Born in October 1955
Proggraming was his only aim of life

Started proggraming at the age of 13
In his work he was really very keen

Entered Harvard in 1973
Thought more than a child could think to be

In 1975 begun Microsoft
With children he's very soft

At the end I would just like to say
I like Bill Gates in every way

No doubt Pakistan is full of talent, all a child needs is a little caring like a plant needs nourishments to advance and evolve.
If children grew up according to early indications, we should have nothing but geniuses.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Arfa Karim Randhawa is young IT prodigy from Pakistan who in 2004 at the age of 9 became the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional from Pakistan. Sharing her story on ARCast she said:
Actually when I was six years old, I saw my first computer; whenever you see something new you want to find What is it ? How does is it work ? so I ask my dad to get me a PC. He bought me one, so I used to mess around and I got to know quite a lot of things about it from the hit and trial method and in about two years I got to know how to operate windows and different softwares completely. After that, I used to make a lot of presentations for my father and my mother. My father and my mother used to watch me and say "she got some talents in computers" so then they took me to an institute near by our house and there I started to learn C sharp and then I appeared for exam of MCP.

Years from 1992 to 1994 can be considered as one of the golden reign in history of Pakistan sports, as Pakistan was the leader in three sports. In 1994, at the IBSF World Snooker Championship, Muhammad Yousaf a Pakistani snooker player defeated Iceland’s Johannes R. Johannesson and became the IBSF World Snooker Champion.

His passion of snooker is a story of life long alone struggle with a society that have no respect for talent.
Yusuf said if ever in the future someone or I myself will write my biography, Champion sportsmen will be astonished scared out of their wits knowing how I struggled.

Stars | Poetry By Arfa Karim Randhawa

1 Comments
 Stars
  I look to the sky at night and admire the beauty of the stars.
I stand in awe of their brilliance;
They are as shining and constant
and they have been since the beginning of time.

They light the heavens and fill our hearts with wonder.
When one burns out, another takes its place;
for they are eternal.
Wherever you are, they guide you from their home high above the earth.
At times, they seem close enough to touch,
as they transport your dreams far away.

Their magic compels us to offer up wishes for their consideration.
They make us realize that even when the sky is the darkest,
a tiny beacon of light still shines through.
They are God's reminder to us that some things really do go on forever.

Symphony of the Sea | Poem By Arfa Karim Randhwa

1 Comments
 Symphony of the Sea
The smoky breath of Poseidon,
Billowing over wintered wings.
Gracefully touched by ice maidens,
Silent thoughts magically sing.

The mother's crystalline wine,
Flows over verdant isles.
Glimmering like an ancient shrine,
A mirror expanding endless miles.

A melody floats upon the tides,
Lingering within cool sprays.
Upon creamy foam the tune rides,
And silver notes gently raise.

Sweetened with an aqua hue,
The mermaid song plays on.
Secrets of the depths are viewed,
Unlocked by the coming dawn.

A symphony soars within the light,
Sea nymph voices floating high.
Within the sound I hear her might,
Echoing where ocean meets sky.

The crystal opera begins to fade,
Becoming now a hymn of the sea.
Memories fall in a final cascade,
Reminding that the song shall always be.

White Rose : Poem By Arfa Karim Randhwa

1 Comments
White Rose   
In the storm
Stands the white rose
tumultuous waves
of destruction abound her

Yet tall is the white rose
strong in the face
Of the sensed doom around her
And she does not bow down

Pure is the white rose
In the compost earth
growing eternal strength
in the nights that so hurt

I see not the white rose
She is so far away
But I long to protect her
But only the words can I say

So I send her my words
And my poets heart
To help her when
there is hope to see her through

Be Strong little flower
Your heart will guide true
And as long as you want
I will always talk to you

The Ghost Poem | By Arfa Karim Randhwa

1 Comments

The Ghost
  I heard a creepy ghost
And down was he creeping
Was it a sound in my head
Or the bedroom door creaking

It was tall as the tallest tree
Playing chase with the wind
It could shrink to the size of a flea
And all it wants is a friend

I heard that ghost
Sliding under the door
It is in my room
Creeping across the floor

It is in my school
Hovering behind my chair
It is behind my friend
Combing cold hands through her hair

It has changed in to a flea
Sitting on a bulb holder
Its next stop to sit would be
Your big smelly shoulder

The Power Of A Poet | Poem By Arfa Karim Randhwa

3 Comments

  Connected to God, in tune with nature,
heartfelt passions spoken in a line.
What better place to find serenity
than in the prayer of a poet online.

Gathered in unity, divided in style;
souls searching for perfect peace
touching lives by a timely rhyme
giving solace and pain's release.

Seeking an emissary to heaven's throne?
To whisper entreaties to Angels there;
No better place to reach God's ear
than through the power of a poet's prayer.

What is a Friend : Poem By Arfa Karim Randhwa

2 Comments
 A friend is someone who understands and
someone you can trust.

They will listen to you both night and day without ever making a fuss.

A friend will stand by your side when you are right and sometimes when you are wrong.

They will hold you up when you are weak and provide support to make you strong.

A friend's love is unconditional and unique in every way.

And when you have problems a true friend will kneel with you and pray.

A friend will stand by your side through thick and thin.

And whenever everyone have deserted you they still will be your friend.

A friend once said to me that a friend is sent from God above and I believe this to be true.

Because God has sent a friend to me and that friend to me is YOU.

Brodcasting politics with Probability and Decission making theories

2 Comments

Studying post-thesis material, came across a topic on cognitive sciences more specifically on efficient decision making in different political sceneries bases on Bayes theorem that is the basis module of decision making under probability. How the developed countries focus on the statistical data more than intuitive reasoning of political analysts. Analyst might not be the proper term used for the bunch of numskulls who seem to call themselves Political analysts appearing on talk shows. Preaching their views publicly is not exactly political analysis, this is a obvious example how many of the positions in society are being manipulated by persons that are quite disqualified and unfit for their Jobs.
These boneheads are lacking in basic skills that are required in the process of prediction of the outcome of a political scenario. Bayes theory, game theory, decision making theory, political game theory, basic applied mathematics are just the tips of an iceberg of the researches that have been done by decades of Nobel laureates like John Nash, Daniel Kahneman have done. Expecting people to read these research is not the idea but at least these they should be skilled enough before to averting general public from their own contours for a political party.
