I have waited for so long to establish my new blog website as I had lately very bad support from my previous hosting company.

My new blog that I called "DevLog" is now hosted by Server Intellect server ( Very special thanks for their generous support and continuous technical support that helped me during the past few days to finalize all server setup and be able to go live again!

Hopefully in the coming few days, I will be back to continuous and scheduled blogging. See you Smile

They pretend to be dealers in all kinds of mobile phones, yet they forgot to mention on their website that they are thieves and liars.

My Name Is Khan …

Category: .Life[email protected] @ 21:41

I haven’t been watching lately any touching or nice movies out there in the cinema until recently, few hours ago, when I watched the movie “My Name Is Khan …. and I am not a terrorist” [My Name Is Khan]

I am not here to go into the religion clash problems we witnessed in the far past, modern past and present, I am here to shed some light on some values and concepts we have lost in our daily life nowadays or even most of them are still present but we hide them or our fast-running life forces us to hide them …

My Name is Khan and I am not a terrorist! It could have been My Name is Bilal, Michael, Bill, George, Doris, Laura, Andy, James, etc … and I am not a terrorist! A human is a human …

Look at the wisdom that our mothers have, any mother out there, no matter to what country she belongs and religion she believes in … There are two types of people “good” and “evil”. The combination is solely binary “0” or “1” .. “True” or “False” …. “Yes” or “No” … How wise is that teaching from Khan’s mother which lead Khan’s entire life while seeking the truth … A saying that can lead any one of us … to find the truth … which could be any truth … The important thing to be a “truth” and not a lie! Fight for the right for the truth for the real and don’t fight for something you don’t believe in … When you’re honest about what you are fighting for you will reach your goal in one way or another!

When someone wants to help … he/she can help any person who is in need regardless of the person’s skin color, race, religion, social status … regardless of the situation we put ourselves in … the important thing to help!

When someone does a mistake … even if he/she stayed long before fixing that mistake, the important thing to fix that mistake and make it up …

Sometimes we lose people in our life only to find new people around us filling our life … our mind … our heart …

When your brother, sister, friend, colleague, girl friend, boy friend, etc … does an evil act, try to explain to them how wrong they are with the goal to change them to act in a good way and stop their evil things … if they didn’t listen you have to stop their evil acts … using the proper ways and not evil ways!

When open for each other frankly, discuss our problems or worries, with good intentions in mind … I believe we can all reach a peaceful state of living … violence brings more violence … patience, understanding, accepting … are much better than all other means …

Just thought of sharing my ideas on a commercial movie that is really touching, painful, funny and above all full of wisdom and lessons to be taught and applied!


Thanks for reading the above,

Kind Regards
