2 days til Song!

2 days til the Song Live Performance. Below is the meaning behind the purpose of the Song, TV show and Music Video.


5 principles I use for Pakistan
(And you can too…)

1. Positivity counts.
Yes, I know the realities about security issues in Pakistan. But, it helps no one to be all negative nancy about it. I want to do something positive, so I have to speak positively. I share my happy memories and talk about all the things I do that are fun in Pakistan. You can too- talk about what you love too…I think we can all collectively swing the pendulum that way.

2. Be the change that you want to see.
This is my principle with Pakistan- You are welcome aboard my utopian ship. You are all so kind and grateful here and that is being the change too.
We are the majority. Small things- become big things. That is the purpose of the song and TV show. I want it to be a big thing- a really big thing- but even if its not- it will still count towards swinging the pendulum shift.

3. Secret night wishes
I make secret night wishes. Well, its one wish every night before I go to sleep. I think about the song, the TV show, the purpose of the project and I make a wish that my utopian ship will sail into vast wide ocean of success and happiness. I learned about this from a success book- positive night visualizations. Try it- let me know if it works for you. This is exactly the same as saying a dua- so I think you are also already doing this. Could you send one to Pelay Hum Pakistani Hay?

4. Social Media rules the new century.
We have the power. I mean the Arab spring was won by twitter! We can share, tag, forward, tweet, Instagram Pelay Hum Pakistani Hay into the social consciousness. We can spread the things we love and stand strong for.

5. Unity through example.
I fell in love with a cute Pakistani guy. Melding these two cultures was made of selfless compromises on both of our parts. I have been returning to Pakistan since our wedding because I feel embraced and part of the country.
So, when people question you about how can I sing a unity song for Pakistan you can say this-
– I have been coming to Pk since 1997.
-Our wedding was in Pakistan and ‘our collective family honeymoon’ as we call it was traveling the vast reaches of Pakistan and we had a blast!
– I have been hurt personally by how intense people get on both sides against America and against Pakistan.
-music is the only way I know how to express these experiences. I began this project as a response to the backlash I was getting in America and in Pakistan.

Welcome aboard the utopian ship we are about to set sail.
