Mountain girl

Last month, I participated in a workshop organized by Right to Play (Pakistan office) for athletes, journalists & bloggers. Initially, my plan was to talk about workshop, theme and other details.

Struggles of MMA Athletes in Pakistan

Playing the Game

 Life is a game with a glorious prize,
If we can only play it right.
It is give and take,build and break,
And often it ends in a fight;
But he surely wins who honestly tries (Regardless of wealth or fame),
He can never despair who plays it fair
How are you playing the game??????
