And the in between moments of quite reprieve
We don’t count on Christmas, nor Eid for cheer
We don’t fool ourselves with “happy new year” ....

There is too much
pressure on me

Salaam Guru,
I am a 16-year-old girl. I am a student of first year (F.S.C). I read your column regularly and now I need your advice. Actually my problem is that I don’t get good grades despite being a bright student. All my teachers say that I have great potential and I can bring better results. ....
