What They Say?

“How noble and good everyone could be if, every evening before falling asleep, they were to recall to their minds the events of the whole day and consider exactly what has been good and bad. Then without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day.”
― Anne Frank

“Do your best, and be a little better than you are.”

Muniba Mazari

Often referred to as the “TED girl”, Muniba is an example of how fighting spirit in a person can take them places!
Read ahead to find out more about her.

When she was 21 years old, Ms. Mazari was left bound to a wheelchair due to a spinal cord injury following a car accident. Nine years ago, while laying in a hospital bed with a broken body, half-paralyzed and barely able to move her hands, Ms. Mazari began to paint in order to distract herself. She says it was painting that kept her alive. Despite the immense pain she has endured because of the accident, she considers her pain “beautiful” since it allows her to connect with others also in pain. Ms. Mazari’s life-changing experience has turned her into an activist, encouraging women and girls that have experienced discrimination or violence to not fear or fight the pain.

It was Ms. Mazari’s motivational speech in November 2014 at a TEDx event organized in Islamabad that propelled her into the public eye. Her speech contained a message of hope, urging people not to give up on life. Her appeal transcends to different generations and represents the voice of women, men, girls and boys across Pakistan on important issues of gender inequality and discrimination.

Ms. Mazari also supports the well-being of under-privileged children and their education. She has spoken out across Pakistan on important issues including gender inequalities and discrimination. She was also named as one of BBC’s 100 Women for 2015.

UN Women appointed Muniba Mazari, 28, as Pakistan’s first National Ambassador during an event in Islamabad to mark the end of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence in December 2015.

Muniba continues her good fight against gender based violence by spreading awareness through her speeches and seminars.

Why do we get hiccups?

We all get them. We all hate them. And once they start, it feels like they never stop. They also tend to happen in the worst possible moments. Hiccups are an annoyance, there is no doubt about that. But have you ever wondered why they happen in the first place? Well, the answer lies in the working of our diaphragm.

Our diaphragm is responsible for maintaining air flow into and out of our respiratory cavity. When we breathe in, it contracts and pulls inwards and when we breathe out it relaxes outwards to form the dome-like shape that we all associate the structure of the diaphragm with. Now, the diaphragm almost always works perfectly...almost always.

Sometimes, when the diaphragm becomes agitated, it pulls down inwards with a jerk leading to the sudden inhalation of air into our throat. When this air hits our voice box, the vocal cords collapse in a sudden fashion and the result is a big, fat *hic*. Some of the reasons why the diaphragm might become agitated are - a stomach irritation, swallowing down a lot of food too quickly, nervousness, etc. It should also be mentioned here that most hiccups last only for a short period of time, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes. However, some hiccups can last for many days and even years and is a sign of some other underlying medical problem(like a tumour or a brain stem seizure) in which case, a physician should be consulted at the earliest.
