Now, I want send a message to all of these people. Not just them but to all of the others too. Why are they trying to send money to NED University? A Corrupt Government system where no one works. Their hardly earnt money is of almost no use.

People working in NED University don't give a shit about the students. I am glad that the alumi working around the world are so generous. My concerns are that NED University has no future. The reason being that the admins placed in NED University are so bad that they can't utilize the resources (money, place etc) to the maximum. My advice for the people sending money from all over the world to NED University would be to think twice before you send money to this organization.

There are so many things that are influencing education in NED University. From bad admins to interference of political parties.

I have a better plan for NED University. Connecting NED University students to NED University alumni using the resources present in NED University.

This could be the best way to achieve what the alumni have been working for several years.

Many thanks,

Fahad Uddin.

Do schools really kill the creativity?



I started to talk about this with Prof. Khurram and we both started to like this video. Now I am starting to collect data and play with big data to prove this.

Mama updates her Facebook picture with children
One more mama updates her picture with children
One more mama updates her picture with her children
Another mumma uploads her pic with her children
The TED talk is right. Schools kill creativity. Lesson learnt: Never go for a good GPA.

Whoa! Our very own Umar Saif gets a Sitara e Imtiaz from the Government of Pakistan


Umar Saif has been the brain behind Punjab Government's IT initiatives and creating cool tools for the Government to watch out for terrorists.

I got an email from Plan9 that the Founder, Umar Saif has been chosen for Sitara e Imtiaz.

Dr. Umar Saif, Chairman PITB was recently awarded with Sitara – e – Imtiaz for his countless contributions towards academics and other accomplishments in the public sector

The man is deserving. I have never met the person but I have seen his initiatives and I have started to like the guy.

We live in a country where people keep criticizing each other no matter how good or bad the other person might be. I am setting a new example by liking other persons success. Good going Umar Saif.

I collected some nerd jokes



  1. The root is at the top of the tree!
  2. "A parent may kill its children if the task assigned to them is no longer needed"
  3. "Programming" is thinking, not typing.  Most of programming is spent sleeping, walking around, staring out the window, or doing anything else that helps you relax and think.
  4. That about 25% of the hours spent writing an application are spent figuring out ways the end user will do something wrong.
  5. Counting starts from zero, not one.
  6. Most people think that I'm just staring into the screen and wasting time, when I'm actually hard working. But if I switch to a console terminal (you know, that window with white letters on black) they are thinking I'm hacking Pentagon security or doing some wild magic things.
  7. A programmer is not a PC repair man
Haha. These are so funny.
