In conversation with Mathira

At the start of her interview, she revealed that “since moving to Pakistan from Zimbabwe, where she was born and raised, she’s had to sleep hungry, travel in rickshaws, and the adversity followed by a series of bad relationships, made her lose faith in God.

But now, she prays tahajjud, salatul hajat and even recites the Quran in English to understand it better. She’s also decided to upgrade her wardrobe in an attempt to grow with time.”

She further revealed, “I do not socialize because I don’t like parties. Some bad energies come all the way to your home, especially after you return from places where people are drunk, can’t hear each other, and don’t talk to each other,” Mathira shared.

“Before you are able to recover from the aftermath, another weekend steps in. So, I don’t like that lifestyle. I’m an extrovert and a very big introvert.”

‘I didn’t drink until I was in a bad relationship’, Mathira 

Mooro went on to acknowledge that she may have appeared “very bold” during her VJ days but “didn’t drink until I was in a bad relationship because of depression and anxiety.”

She is, however, over that phase now and content in life. “The time during which we get into these meaningless relationships is the time we need to spend on establishing a base for ourselves.

Our life is a building, if the pillars are weak, the building will never be strong. If the investment you’re supposed to make on establishing that base, you instead make on partying, your building will collapse,” she remarked.

Mathira went on share her journey, “I hadn’t completed my education, left Zimbabwe, and came here. Nobody accepted us from the maternal side of our family because they knew they’d have to feed us and get us married. We were girls after all. And we had to work. So, we faced many problems but thankfully I’ve always been a solution-oriented person.”

How to interact with locals

Mathira shared that one of the biggest problems she had was how to interact with locals. “I didn’t know Urdu. And I would say ‘darling, sweetheart, thank you, good morning, good afternoon to random people and give compliments left, right, and center. Where I came from, that was normal. I didn’t know that here, even if you call someone ‘jaanu’, in their head, they’ll have made babies with you,” she laughed.

She even recalled her old times when she had to face a lot. “I’ve had to travel in rikshaws, buses, my mom and us, we’ve had to sleep hungry. We’ve seen dark times. From being born with a golden spoon to having no roof on our heads, we’ve seen it all. And I had to change myself a lot to adjust.”

She further added, “But when God gives problems, He also gives solutions. For me, my guardian angel was my first boss. He told me, no parties, no drinking, he walked me through as a guardian should. He trusted me with his channel and I owed it to him to make it shine. I ended up moving, buying a car, and my favorite shoes. I’d walk past this shop every day and tell myself I’d get those shoes one day and I finally did,” she chuckled. “That’s when I started establishing my base.”

Coming back stronger

Mathira also shared that she got to hit rock bottom twice in her life, losing her religion and then returning back stronger and more spiritual than ever. 

“We lost everything and I ended up becoming a semi-atheist because I didn’t understand why these things were happening to me. 

But that path made me who I am now and I thank God for a hundred times because of it. Had He not made me walk that difficult path, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” she assured.

She further revealed that “Whenever a person breaks, always remember, it’s because they are being made to undergo a transformation. Now, I believe that a person should never be comfortable in life. 

If you find comfort in your wealth, you will lose it all. If you find comfort in your poverty, you will gain nothing. If you’re broken and having a sorrowful party you will never taste happiness. If you’re happy and start thinking it’ll stay the same, you will be disappointed very soon.”

Spiritual side 

Mathira shed some light on her “very private” and spiritual side, she reflected, “When you fall in love with God, the world becomes dust under your feet. When you fall in love with the world, you become insignificant to it. 

I speak to God as I would speak to my father, my friend. Irrespective of the problem, I will eat and sleep in peace. Because I talk to God about my problems and leave it to Him to solve them and He does.

I have seen failed relationships and bad marriages, and I have been in horrible places in life. Now, I’m trying to become a better human.”

Mathira also believes that people cannot serve religion before serving humanity. “Humans first need to focus on serving humanity, then they can move on to the religion bit. Here, we just skip to the religion part, which leads us to pick and choose facts that we are comfortable with.

I am still finding myself. Recently I’ve decided that I will bring a change in my clothing. I’ve changed my wardrobe. 

I need more covered clothes, no shorts, no cleavage. I just thought it was about time. I’m thirty, I’ve done it all, now I want to try this and see where it takes me.”

‘I have been judged all of my life,’ Mathira

Mathira concluded her interview, “I’ve been judged all my life. I’ve seen people tell others that I’m a ‘buri aurat’ just because of the way I dress. But these people don’t even know me. This change, however, is sole because change is important to me.

I feel one should move with time. I feel I’m growing mentally and I have to change myself. And I’ve learned from this guru that whenever you have an excess of anything in life, it becomes toxic for you. 

Anything that exceeds its limit is poison so you should know your capacity and everyone’s capacity is different.” Mathira recently shared her views on religion and bold dressing.
