Hey Ed,
I have only recently started reading your magazine and this is like my first ever letter to you. To be honest, I used to think that ‘Us’ is a kid’s magazine which is why I never bothered reading it. But recently I was just flipping through the pages and found the content very catchy and interesting. Since then my perception about your magazine has totally changed. I think your magazine is really informative and interesting. And I recommend it to all the avid readers out there. ....

COVER STORY

8909_9_12_2014_1.gifIt’s hard to get tired of books. There’s just something about them. Think about it. The immense power of words so artfully written and beautifully strung together that they enable your brain to conjure up pictures from the depths of your imagination and pull relentlessly at your emotions and feelings. Words which conjure up new ideas, beautiful or dangerous, that add a new dimension to your personality and leave you for days onwards to ponder over the oddities of life.

HUMOUR
By Mohammad Zuhaib
8912_9_12_2014_1.gifI am a student. My name is not important. My address is not necessary. My phone number … well, I don’t have any. My problem is, well … a problem for all those who are students. The Quaid told us to study hard, for that is our obligation to ourselves, our parents and our state.

But WAPDA advises: Bijli bachayai, Apnay liye, Quom kay Liye. ....
 
 

 
STORY
By Saba Fatima Ali
8913_9_12_2014_1.gifHis sparkling white uniform was shining in the sunlight casting a shadow. Shoes polished to perfection stood out amongst the crowd. He stood tall, without a wrinkle on his face appearing as a strong pillar of strength. Ironically his heart was acting in deep contrast. It was a bundle of fear. Beating in a chaotic rhythm anticipating what was to happen.

Actually, I am an introvert and find it very hard to converse with people. That’s why it is difficult for me to leave a good impression on folks I come across. Secondly, I have a very bad relationship with my mom. ....
