Cooking my passion

Cooking My Passion

 

A hobby is a theme or an object considered as unduly occupying one’s interests or attention. To me it is the reflection of a sort of mental weakness for a particular thing. By having certain hobbies I have provided my restless mind with a healthy cultural sport. I have few hobbies some are major and some are minor. Hobbies vary person to person. Some love travelling other love reading, but I love cooking. Cooking has been my passion since my childhood. I still remember when I was a kid I used to stand by my mother and watch her cooking. According to me every one can cook, it is not difficult at all. But the main ingredient to cooking is presentation.

I love making Pakistani dishes, and healthy food which is nourishing and is good for health. When I was 14 I made my first dish which was Biryani. Mostly I prefer to cook my favourite food. Being a gourmet I love to eat food. I bake pizzas and muffins too whenever I am free from my busy routine. I think that cooking is an evolving art. Everyday people are experimenting with new dishes and adding different flavours to it. So as I do. I make something different and unique. I think that one should always try new things and it need not be repetitive and boring.

Cooking as a hobby is easiest among all hobbies. For instance if you want to paint you should have talent, for photography you need equipment. Cooking might not need that much equipment. All it needs is love for food, taste and one’s own talent. In my case my mom has been my cooking expert and the greatest inspiration. I still remember how she used to cook me a variety of dishes on weekends. At time she would bake a steak or make sushi or cook continental.

Euthanasia of Youth

To pinpoint that the youth of today faces a lot of problems would not reveal something new. Every generation of youth has encountered difficulties. But this specific era of our nation’s history appears to offer the young complications that were not always that pressing before. Their problems seem to be overshadowing the good things of their life. According to my personal observation, the youth seems to be confused, aggressive, indulged in wrongdoings, involved in riots, rebelling against authority and the age is characterized by suicide.

One of the major sources of the problems of youth is home- a place that is meant to be the comfort zone of a person. Home is a place filled of love, care, relief, discipline, hope and provision. But nowadays this concept isn’t valid at many places. This modern era has altered the traditional way of living as a family. Parents are too busy in the money making process hardly paying any attention to their children. Young children demand love and care and when they are deprived of it, they indulge themselves in attention seeking activities. They fail to respect their parents and are frequently observed to be involved in quarrels and arguments with them. Children learn disrespect for authority in the home. It carries into the school and other avenues of life.

Drug usage is an upcoming trend in the teenagers. Whenever I visit any restaurant or cafe, I see teenagers smoking cigarettes or shisha. This has become a symbol of belonging to a “socially acceptable” class. The youth is confused as to what is the right step to be taken- whether they should let themselves go with the flow of the society or they should take a stand and not indulge in such activities. If they opt for latter, then they are somehow isolated from others. But they need to realize the fact that how harmful it is to use all these drugs and how prone they are to different health problems. Our youth is our future, and if they are headed towards a wrong path then our future is at stake.

Moreover with the advancement in terms of technology, the youth has become so much techno-savvy that they seem to have time for nothing else. All the time, they are busy with their mobile phones or laptops; they have isolated themselves from other things and are engrossed in their own secluded world of technology. This has created a communication gap between parents and children which in turn has made matters worse.

Nowadays, we see that competition exist in almost every field of life be it be studies, work or job. Everyone is running a race; a race for moving ahead and leaving others behind and this has created serious consequences for the nation. The youth has become very materialistic.  Money, comfort and luxury are the topmost priority whereas love for relations and humanity is somehow being left behind.

We need to take these problems and their deadly consequences under consideration because this is high time we should take an action. Guidance is truly needed for the youth and we should work for them and with them to overcome these challenges rather than simply hope that everything will work out all right. I am doing my part… Are you doing yours?
