Pakistan, the heaven on earth

Harmony2

Commonalities and differences determine the love and hatred, there are approximately 6.5 Billion Human being inhabiting the only living planet that is called earth, not a single person exactly matches any other person in the whole wide world, and we all have our individuality that make each person distinct from the others.

God has made us humans from one father and one mother, Adam and Eves, we have different races, skin tones, languages, dialects, ethnicity  cultures, tribes, religions, sects, professions, social status, beliefs, political affiliations etc etc., which makes us distinct from any other person. The beauty of diversity in human culture is a result of combination of these elements, it’s great if we respect each other the way they are and get connected to others by finding the commonalities between ourselves and others, the world can only be a peaceful place by relating otherwise it can become hell.

Not even identical twins are totally the similar you can find a mole on the face of one of them and start hating him.

Look around the world that we are living in today, how much of hatred and killing is going on in the name of these difference. Let’s talk about our country now, in Pakistan there are people who will say that we are Pakistanis from the past 65 years, Muslim from a few hundred years but Punjabi, Pathan, Sindhi, Balochi, Saraiki, Kashmiri etc from thousands of year, there are others who will say that they are better as they belong to a particular religious belief, it’s not bad to be proud of being what you are, the problem begins when you start considering others inferior to you and hating them for what they are, why do we forget that God made us humans first, it’s important to become a human being rather than just wearing a title of a specific political, religious, national, linguistic identity.

To take Pakistan forward the people of this nation has to shed these petty differences and start respecting each others as humans, don’t worry about the believes of others as you will not be judged on their believes or acts, God will only question you about your own acts.

Look at the sorry state that we are in these days, our country is on the brink of collapse, there is a complete absence of harmony, respect among groups, institutions, different believes, our youth’s biggest pastime these days is to share hate material against their rivals in terms of politics, religions, sects, believes, even the jokes they share are against others, no matter it’s a video or audio clip, a picture, a thought, or a joke, it is meant to hurt others feeling in one way or other. We don’t just hate people of different backgrounds in Pakistan but also other nations and religions, we share our hateful thoughts not only in our social circles but on social forums like Tweeter, Facebook, Youtube etc.

God has bestowed His blessings on our country, we have the largest irrigational system which means there is no shortage of food and water, we have the most magnificent mountains which are full of minerals, be it desert, rivers, sea, mountains, glaciers, we have it all in our land. The only things that we don’t have are trust, peace, positivity and respect, which all come from education.

Can we all resort to make the heaven that God has given us to live an example of harmony and development for others to follow?

Let’s be better human beings and be respectful to others, let’s start it from ourselves, let’s begin it by applying these rules on us first as charity begins from home. Remember if we all do a little, we can do a lot!

What’s the solution?

Posted in About Me, PAKISTAN, Uncategorized, WAR ON TERROR on June 11, 2011 by ramzzi

I am one of you guys, a regular person who loves his birth place and the place I was born in is called Pakistan. It’s a beautiful country of 180 Million people, it has some of the most astounding landscapes and the most beautiful cultures in the world, it is a unique country in terms of the variety of landscapes it holds in it’s boundaries, it stretches from the roof of the world (Himalaya ranges) to the warm waters of Arabian sea (Indian Ocean),  it has world’s largest irrigation systems, Cholistan desert, mountains of all colours and shades which are full of natural resources, large deposits of natural resources like Gem stones, Gold, Copper, Natural Gas, Milestone petroleum, salt, coal, iron and many other large deposits in it, it has a vibrant human resource, world’s ninth largest English speaking population, it has the seventh largest pool of doctors and engineers,  63% of it’s total population is under 25 years of age which means the country is full of resources but sadly yet impoverish, which puts a big question mark on our systems and society, at this point in the history we should realize and own the problems that we have before moving towards any solution, I am just one of those who are gravely concerned about the ongoing situation of our beautiful motherland, which I believe is one of the greatest nations of the world.

I have been thinking of the ongoing situation of Pakistan and will like to suggest a multi-layered solution approach which need to be adopted in Pakistan sooner than later as otherwise our future generations will not spare us or God forbidden we might not even have a future at all.

Before discussing  the solutions first we need to identify the problems. To me the mother of all problems at the moment is lack of leadership, direction and vision.

In today’s sorry situation when our economy is in tatters, currency at the weakest, power production is just a fraction of what is required,  the security situation is distorted with a civil war like situation, with enemy’s invasion in our country both in the shape of drone by US and suicide bomb blasts of the extremists, radicalized trends in the society which has produced incidents like Lal Masjid, Swat and Malakand situation and assassination of Salman Taseer, intolerance incidences like Sialkot lynching, Mukhtara Mai and Ranger’s involvement in the cold blooded killing of citizen.

As a nation we have already hit the rock bottom, nothing can be worst then this but as a nation we need to get united and to agree upon a plan to come out of the problems that we currently have.

Primarily we have to make sure that the people we elect should be the best amongst us, we should have people of good repute and education to lead the nation, the next government should be of technocrats who are experts in there fields, not a corrupt politician with a filthy past and a fake degree.

The assembly should pass a resolution which should ask political parties to conduct in party reforms by inducting or selecting people with a proven education and experience in their respective ministries.

As only people of good repute and education can ask US to leave the country and to convince them to wrap up it’s drone attack and Raymond Davis kind of operations on our soil as they are of no help and can only pile the heap of our miseries.

The government with NGOs and friendly countries like china and turkey should invest in the future of the nation by reforming it’s public schools, colleges and universities, all the top universities schools and colleges should be encouraged to open their branches in the rural and tribal areas.

All the foreign aid offers should be declined and the government should demand to halt or a reduction in the debt servicing for at least 20 years, in which there should be a ban on any kind of loan from IMF, World Bank or any other financial institute.

We should adopt a friendly policy toward our neighbouring countries and should revisit our policies towards India and Afghanistan as well, as we can only focus on our development once we get out of such kind of rivalries with our neighbouring countries.

We should also control our population and should impose a law in order to discourage people from having a family of more then 4.

We should have a full database of population in our country with matching DNA database and a full control of our borders specially the one which we share with Afghanistan.

After all what has been happening in my country I am still proud to be a Pakistan and as love knows no conditions so my love for my country is unconditional as well, I just want it to become one of the most progressing countries and want to see the change before I hit my bucket.

We should not just wait for a just and fair government to come by itself and solve our problems but should start solving problems ourselves.

SAP HR and HCM training tutorial

Posted in About Me, SAP, Uncategorized on October 14, 2010 by ramzzi

This training tutorial is designed to help human resources (HR) administrators better utilize the SAP HR module, SAP human capital management (HCM) and the entire collection of SAP HR tools as a single platform for monitoring, managing and analyzing an organization’s HR processes.

In this guide, SAP HR administrators will find tips for SAP HR planning, such as:

  1. How to create a business case for SAP HR in your organization;
  2. How to plan an SAP HR implementation;
  3. How to manage employees better;
  4. How to build in organizational controls;
  5. How to execute SAP HR projects; and
  6. How to improve human resources training.

This SAP HR/HCM training tutorial will walk HR managers, HR directors and SAP developers through SAP’s HR/HCM modules, while providing tips from SAP HR and SAP /HCM experts that will help an organization improve its SAP HR system.

   

SAP HR/HCM planning

There are many different kinds of HR software and many enterprise HR software vendors. If you’re an HR director evaluating HR software solutions, ERP vendor SAP will probably be on your short-list of prospective vendors. No matter whether your HR-related function is technology- or business-oriented, you’ll find information in this training tutorial to help with your company’s SAP HR/HCM planning.

Understanding HR

HR applications touch upon many processes in an organization, not to mention every employee. Implementing or upgrading to SAP HR is a major commitment in terms of time and money that may make the HR department reconsider all of its people-facing policies, rules and goals in such a way as to ease the transition to SAP-supported business processes, taxonomies and tools.

HR managers may be interested in reading books about SAP HR such as HR Personnel Planning and Development Using SAP and mySAP HR: Technical Principles and Programming. These two books explain the strategic scope of an SAP HR project as well as the technical details involved. In order to better understand the practice of HR in the e-business era, check out e-HR: Human Resources in the Digital Age. Excerpts from other books chapter books on SAP HR an HCM from SAP Press books on the SearchSAP.com site.

For SAP HR planning, begin with the SAP Human Capital Management (HCM) Solution Map to see what SAP is offering in terms of high-level functionality. You might also want to examine Structures in SAP HR for a look at nuts-and-bolts functionality. If you still need more business context, read the SAP ERP HCM overview.

 Another important skill is being able to change settings in SAP HCM, so you can configure SAP HCM to your company’s specific policies. It might come in handy to know where to find the settings pertaining to retroactive accounting in SAP HR payroll. Other good HR skills to have are knowing how to limit quota deduction amounts or how to change the calendar year to the fiscal year..

Making a business case for SAP HR

An HR manager or IT manager may have to make a business case for SAP HR. They can get the ROI numbers and benefits lined up by measuring the value of HR solutions. It will help to know the weaknesses of SAP HR. Deploying an SAP enterprise application is often a long-term commitment, and you’ll need to conduct your due diligence throughout the evaluation process. One idea is to specify key functionality and use weighted criteria in picking your human resources software vendor of choice.

The ROI of SAP HR and human capital management (HCM) benefits In some cases, return on investment (ROI) can be the determining factor in choosing an HR solution or looking at SAP ERP HCM. For example, the city of Mississauga, in Ontario, Canada, decided to implement SAP ERP HCM after years of using Oracle’s PeopleSoft HR software, citing a need for a greater ROI.

The city was looking for more functionality in its HR software, such as better workflow and employee self-service, which would allow employees to access and update their personal records.

When the city decided in 2008 to replace its Oracle PeopleSoft HR system with SAP ERP HCM, they could not calculate the long-term cost benefits of SAP HCM, but were able to calculate that, in the short term, SAP would wind up costing 45% less per CPU than Oracle PeopleSoft. Another cost benefit was that Mississauga had historically paid less in consulting costs for its SAP upgrades in ERP Financials applications than for PeopleSoft upgrades. Another incentive: The city already used SAP BusinessObjects as a BI platform, so managing one platform – SAP — would save IT administrators a good deal of time.

Another SAP ERP HCM user, the British Satellite Company, decided to replace its separate HR and payroll systems with SAP ERP HCM Personnel Administration, Organizational management, Benefits and Payroll. By centralizing its SAP ERP HCM system, the company was able to integrate the requirements of the new system into one set of processes, and automatic integration with the existing finance system was introduced to help streamline the payroll process.

Implementing SAP HR

If you decide on SAP as your HR/HCM solution, you may want to consult an SAP HR implementation guide. Most companies have to tweak the SAP HR/HCM module, which is why it pays to know about optimizing HR with custom objects.

The core of SAP HR planning is to translate board-, executive- and regulation-driven goals into policies that touch all employees and govern the processes surrounding the employee lifecycle, from recruitment to post-termination record-keeping. That’s a vast undertaking, but one that makes more sense if you break it up into smaller segments. Start by thinking of SAP HR as a set of administrative tools that lets you drive HR policies into the heart of an organization.

Consolidating multiple HR applications

Many companies that have opened offices in other countries or grown through mergers and acquisitions have found themselves with multiple human resources systems from different vendors. More of these organizations are consolidating human resources applications to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of applications and the cost of service delivery, as well as to get more accurate information.

In 2007 Inverness Medical Innovations acquired a company called BioSite, which was using HCM software-as-a-service from Workday Inc. By early 2009, Inverness had acquired a total of 70 companies, and wanted one primary HCM solution. Inverness was considering Workday’s HCM SaaS product as well as SAP HCM, since many of the companies that Inverness had previously acquired were using SAP ERP for financials.

Now, Inverness runs Workday’s HCM software to track compensation, benefits and employee time off and integrates information from outsourced payroll providers and benefits carriers.

Understanding SAP workforce management benefits

Another category of software related to HR is workforce management. Today, companies are looking for ways to get more out of their top (and most expensive) resource — their employees. In that light, many companies are taking another look at workforce management software.

Companies aren’t just using workforce management tools to track employee hours anymore. Tools like labor analytics are helping many companies better meet their strategic objectives as well as increase revenues.

The Poet in me…RIP now!!

Hi there,

Although I am not a poet and that has been decided now, however in the past I did express my then feelings and thoughts that I was indulged in those days, in this form of literature, people in your life come for a reason, at the end they either give you a treasured memory or a good lesson, why don’t I rather start living in the present and cherish the very moment that I have got in my disposal, present is a precious present” ain’t it? 😀
I hope you will enjoy a few poems or may be a few lines which I am sharing with you guys on this forum, so enjoy everyone:)!!

Talaash
…………..
Ye mera pyar nahi hay tou aur kya hay bhala
har ek nigah main tujh ko talash karta hon

hawaoon main kabhi dhondhon teray badan ki mehk
kabhi main raah main tujh ko talaash karta hon

kabhi kisi ki nazar main kabhi badan main kisi
har ek nazare main tujh ko talash karta hon

tou mujh say dour buhut hay yeh jaan kar bhe kabhi
main apnay paas main tujh ko talaash karta hon

tere wafa say mujhay sou shikayatain he sahi
main etibar main tujh ko talaash karta hon

teray jo baa’d mili hain muhabatain mujh ko
main un kay pyar main tujh ko talaash karta hon

Mohabbat Ruth Jati hay!!
———————————
umeedon ki ye dorain kis tarha say tot jati hain
yaqeeni beyaqeeni say yon kyon kar maat khati hay
ye chahat bhe koi mosam hay jo yaksaan nahi rehta?
koi rokay bhalay kitna, mohabbat ruth jati hay!!!

dilon main khwahishain janay kyon itna kasmasati hain
kisi ki yaad aksar khwab say hum ko jagati hain
kabhi sukh day kay jati hain, kabhi dukh day kay jati hain
koi rokay bhalay kitna, mohabbat ruth jati hay!!!

mohabbat roshni hay dil kay angan jagmagati hai
humain pehum chupay kuch ramz jenay kay batati hay
hamaisha ek suhani yad ban kar gudgudati hay
koi rokay bhalay kitna, mohabbat ruth jati hay!!!
