Dear Editor,
Finally an article that guys must have enjoyed! It was good to read ‘The show of shows creates history’ by Muhammad Omar Iftikhar (17 April issue). I believe wrestling has been unfairly ignored by Us so far, although most guys my age really love it. Anyway, better late than never!

The nameless diary
By Maryam Afzal,Illustrations by Amna Qadir

The idea of spying on someone kept me distracted throughout the day. It was about 10 p.m. I knew there won’t be many people left outside his house. I had a very good look at his back entrance and window in the right wall. A cottage with a back entrance ought to have another passage leading to it.

You’re Getting Old

On the aims of poetry
By John Keats
“We hate poetry that has a palpable design upon us-and if we do not agree, seems to put its hand in its breeches pocket. Poetry should be great & unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one’s soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself but with its subject.-How beautiful are the retired flowers! how would they lose their beauty were they to throng into the highway crying out, ‘admire me I am a violet! dote upon me I am a primrose!”

- Excerpted from the Keats’ letter, ‘On the Aims of Poetry: Letter to J. H. Reynolds, 3 February 1818’ ....

This is because the responsibility for bringing about change, moving towards progress and coming up with different innovation lies on today’s youth. In short, the youth represents the future of any given nation and is therefore, a very important part of the population. Being a developing country, Pakistan takes great pride in the fact that more than 40 per cent of its population comprises of youth.

On 11 April 1970, NASA launched another moon mission that never made it to the moon and came down crashing into the Pacific Ocean six days later. However, to date, NASA thanks the onboard low-tech installed that guaranteed the safety of the crew members back to earth. Apollo 13 was comprised of two spacecrafts, the Odyssey, for taking off and returning to earth, and Aquarius, for landing on the Moon. There were two oxygen tanks that allowed the astronauts to breathe, but also contained the cells to power the command systems. Fifty-six hours into the mission, one of the tanks exploded. ....

I fancy my sister’s fiancé
Salam Guru,
I am 19 years old and I am studying in a renowned college. I belong to a well-to-do family. I have one elder sister and our parents love us tremendously. I have lots of friends and they all say that that I am very beautiful. I am also good at studies, so I am quite popular among my teachers too. Guru, a lot of boys are interested in me, but no one has ever clicked me as such. However, lately, I have developed feelings for my future brother-in-law ‘H’ who happens to be very handsome and has an impressive personality. ....
