10252_2_27_2015_1.gifThis is not us!
Dear Ed,
It is a heartbreaking truth that the young generation of our nation has lost all its spirit and enthusiasm towards their beloved country, Pakistan.

I attended the Sports Day at my college a few days back, and I was extremely shocked to see that more than half of the students did not stand up for the national anthem, and kept sitting on their seats. Instead of staying quiet throughout the national anthem, they kept blaming their country. ....

All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.

By Faiz Ahmed Faiz
Today, again, the mind searches for a word:
A word imbibed with wine or filled with venom,
Replete with love, or fraught with dread.

A word of affection:
Like a joyful glance -
One which carries the caress of soft, warm lips.
Brilliant - like a surge of the molten gold. ....

Twins- are they double trouble?
By Moomal Ahmed
10255_2_27_2015_1.gifI have always fancied having an identical twin. After years of reading those frisky ‘twin mysteries’ and ‘two of a kind’, having a twin seems like the most excellent thing that could have happened to me. Just any other twin would certainly NOT be fine; they start to contradict and distinguish with the course of time. It is only identical twins who neither change nor become different, even over a long period of time; you could paint one with melted lipstick and dress the other in ludicrous circus clothes, but you would just find them the same mirror images of each other. ....

This world is not for me
By Shumaila Irshad
10256_2_27_2015_1.gifYes, this world is not for me because it is largely built for right-handed people. We, the left-handed people, are also a part of this world. There should be arrangements for us in every institute and workplaces. Sure, lefties make up about 10 percent of the population, but frankly, it seems like society has forgotten about them. Right-handed gadgets are like awkwardly designed desks, cooking tools that fit comfortably in your right hand … they are all just so wrong! Being a lefty, I have always had trouble with scissors, pens, notebooks, desks, sewing machines, cameras, etc… ....

Dear Kpop Girl,
You don’t need to feel so dejected, young girl. The way your parents are treating you is quite common. Most parents treat their youngest child like a baby, even if they are big enough to take care of themselves. Same is the case with you; since you are the youngest in the family, everyone treats you like a baby doll. Actually, your older sisters and parents feel protective of you and they think that it is their responsibility to take care of you, and to keep you away from this bad wild world. ....

10260_2_27_2015_1.gifWrong e-mail

A few days after her husband’s death, a grieving widow accidentally receives an e-mail from a man waiting for his wife in Miami.

The e-mail reads: ....
