Packt celebrates International Day Against DRM, May 6th 2014

Packt2

According to the definition of DRM on Wikipedia, Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a class of technologies that are used by hardware manufacturers, publishers, copyright holders, and individuals with the intent to control the use of digital content and devices after sale.

However, Packt Publishing firmly believes that you should be able to read and interact with your content when you want, where you want, and how you want – to that end they have been advocates of DRM-free content since their very first eBook was published back in 2004.

To show their continuing support for Day Against DRM, Packt Publishing is offering all its DRM-free content at $10 for 24 hours only on May 6th – that’s all 2000+ eBooks and Videos. Check it out at: http://bit.ly/1q6bpha.

When Dreams Come True

Well well well…. its been a while I haven’t talked about anything on my lovely blog… haha… :D

Well, today its kind of big day, actually no, its kind of bigger day for me. Why? You might be thinking why? Well, answer is simply the title of this article. Yes, when dreams come true… So, you haven’t asked it yet, but I am sure that you would be thinking about dreams or maybe dream which came true. So, let’s see them then.

Background
Life is tough and complicated when you choose path of achieving some goal and making some dreams true. There are lots of problems and obstacles which tackle you, make you slow, even stop you or simply misguide you in wrong direction so that you can’t get your goals. Now, that’s how I am feeling about it. Its been almost 2 years literally and I am waiting for this day. And then finally and atlast the day came today and dreams came true.
So, what you think guys, what would I be feeling? Well, thanks to GOD, my family, my friends, all those who helped me through this directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally, and You guys….. I finally did it.

I would like to thanks to all who supported me directly or indirectly, but I would like to thanks more to those who didn’t help me, because they taught me some very important lessons of life. Thanks.

But, is this end?
Ofcourse not, this isn’t an end. Its the start of very long journey. Life is gift, and gift is precious to everyone. So is to me as well. But, you feel more alive when you make your life better on your own guts by your own hardwork. I have been dreaming all the life for something really really big. I don’t know whether I can get it or not, whether i will get it or not, but I am trying and I will keep trying it until life is over. Sometimes, my friends or my own tell me about my dreams and say that its impossible dream to accomplish. You shouldn’t be supposed to work on impossible dream at all. And, instantly i say:

Dreams aren’t supposed to be classified on some criteria like this is possible and this is not. What i can do about my dreams is to try and work hard even harder when it seems to be impossible. I will die trying rather than keep quite and do nothing thinking that its impossible.

According to my life experience, when you choose path of achieving some dream, then a lot of things will try to stop you for various reasons. I observed that whatever you do, the very first one to question you is your spouse. Next in the list is parent or gaurdian, and finally your surrounding like friends, neighborhood, society etc. Its not like you ignore everyone, and choose path of achieving your goals. If i would do like this, let’s say i get my dreams, then what? I got none to share my success with.

when it comes to achieving goals, then there are two kinds of people. Those who step on others’ shoulders and move up, and those who on their guts and hard work goes up.

Well, i am talking about this dream for 2 years. What really I saw regarding changes in my circle. At very first, people in my circle appreciated me, motivated me, became happy, even said to pray for me. Gradually, I always used to say same thing over and over again, and people instead of motivation, they used to laugh at me and say something like you have been talking about it for a while. Saying is easy and doing is the hard thing. I took them as positive and increased my motivation. Some other time spent, and same people started making fun on me like repeating my dream in teasing style and they were hurting me indirectly and my motivation was decreasing. What I did was again to speak same dream over and over again. I used to speak it because sharing dreams with others was giving me motivation. During all time, some people even tried to lend me help, i wanted to take it but i was in no situation of taking it. You know how risk management works. So, it was almost there, and people even used hursh words this time like you can’t do anything, you are all just talk and nothing more. Literally, this incident really hurt me very deeply. I was so much demotivated and discouraged that i changed my plans and so the dreams. I started to ask people that will you like me when i forget my dreams and do some other thing instead. Haha, now same people are saying stuff like are you crazy, why you are thinking like that, you can’t do that etc. So, i really don’t get the point. When you were following your dreams, people were stopping you directly or indirectly, and when you thought of leaving it, same people asked you and pushed you to your dreams. I really didn’t get the point. What i did was that i stopped speaking about my dreams with others, and was working harder silently. Though it was quite hard and tough one for me to keep silence, but i did it. And, thanks to ALLAH, i did it. Those people are really proud of it, and those are creating roles of how they helped me through this journey, and share my success. I don’t mind it.

When you choose to follow dreams, people will stop you. When you think of stopping it, people will push you towards dreams or pull you out of it saying you are taking right step. And when you finally stop it, they will make fun of you and will say something like see, i told you earlier, or i already knew you haven’t got guts to do it, or share your story as bad example to learn from with others.
I will say only thing. No matter what they say, you just have to move forward and don’t look back. It is hard path even for a very little dream but you just have to make it true. At end, when you achieve your dream, those same people will be proud of you and will share your story with others.

I am glad that i did it. It was my first step to my life. Still a lot of path is left. It was just start. And thanks to all those people, who stopped me along my way, made fun of me, laughed at me, teased me, because they made me realize that how hard whole path is when taking first step is like this. Thanks and a big applause to all of those people.

More thanks to those, who believed me, appreciated me, motivated me, guide me. I am really thankful to all such guys. Hats off to you for listening my senseless dreams and believing on me and showing positive feedback. I can’t forget it whole life. Thanks For reading this.
