8453_7_18_2014_1.gifThe Palestine issue
Dear Editor,
I’d like to point out the ignorance and indifference of the general population towards the plight of our Palestinian brethren. Everyone is well informed about the latest developments of the FIFA World Cup, while remaining ignorant about the mass murder of our fellow Muslims in this sacred month. I request the media to shed more light on the Palestinian issue and comparatively less on sports news. ....

8455_7_18_2014_1.gifSmiling … down memory lane

Our first ever fast is always a sweet memory to relive. How we were duped by doting mothers by making us believe in the ‘chirya ka roza’ can still make us smile. Some of our favourite writers share with us the fond memories of their first rozas. Here goes… ....

8456_7_18_2014_1.gifNever did I want to leave the Harry Potter universe. Never did I want to stop marking off days on my calendar until I got my hands on the next book. I read the last page of the seventh and the final installment with this weird sense that I was somehow losing my best friend and while I did get most of my questions answered, there were so many that simply weren’t! We got an epilogue, a chapter called ‘Nineteen years later’ and usually, I am a big fan of epilogues. They give me a sense of closure. This epilogue, however, made me feel like I missed out. Seven books, and seven years of Harry’s life, being party to every thought, every notable event in his world followed by a footnote of sorts with the information that he was alive and well and happy. ....

8457_7_18_2014_1.gif“Ahmad, have a few glasses of water. You are going to be fasting all day!” Nida, Ahmad’s mother, called out. Ahmad, as usual, was playing and tuned Nida’s voice out so much so that it was no more than an annoying hum in the background. His head only turned up when a different, more demanding voice reached his ears. His father’s! Ahmad stood up and walked up to the dining table, dragging his feet, with a stubborn look on his face. This only infuriated his father even more. In respect of Ramazan, he stopped himself from scolding him and continued on with his last-minute suhoor. ....

8458_7_18_2014_1.gifThey’ve spent years asking if they can haz cheezeburger, looking down from ceilings, playing people off on their keyboards, and generally being the overlords of the Internet, and their popularity is showing no signs of waning. Cats very emphatically rule the Web. No matter what they look like or where they come from, post their photos online and the Internet is bound to collectively fall in love with them. Some in particular have won global fame. Here are a few of the most famous kitties in the online world: ....

8459_7_18_2014_1.gif“Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people.”-Nelson Mandela Racial discrimination had been a huge issue in South Africa in the past; there was a constant war between the blacks and whites with neither party willing to back out. As a result, the country was in a state of stagnancy and decline. In such a scenario, Nelson Mandela’s initiative in ending racism came like a candle in an otherwise dark room. It was this selflessness that completely changed the course of history for the South Americans. And it is this selflessness which we want in the youth of today! ....

Dear Pappan Khan,

Thanks for writing to me once again. I am glad that my advice helped you in resolving your dilemma. As for your constant problem, I think you should take the risk and tell your cousin straightforwardly all about your past. I can understand your apprehensions but how long can you hide it from him? ....
