Where is Saad?
I have been a silent reader of your mag for a long time. I really love it. Where’s Saad Javed? I haven’t seen his articles since ‘Begums and broomsticks’. Please publish ‘Graffiti’ regularly. Your magazine is an awesome place for young writers. Keep up the good work!

I wanted to say that your magazine is awesome. I am a regular reader; thumbs up to your nice edition. This mag is really crucial for the youngsters as it gives guidance to them through the cover stories and other articles. My most favourite section is the ‘Poets’ Corner’ and I also like the way Guru solves problems.

Anime time – again!
Kon’nichiwa (Hello) Ed-sama!!!!
It’s been a while since I last wrote to you, and it was all due to my exams! They just never end. I just wanted to request our great authors to write something about Japanese culture. I would have written some articles of my own, but I think I’m no good! If not Japanese culture, maybe something more on Anime? I’m sure my fellow Anime lovers would agree. The article on Anime by Maida Nadeem Janjua was a huge hit. I’d love to read more articles by her or anybody else. Anime lovers of Pakistan should unite! Who wants the Naruto team to come to Pakistan? Anyway, enough of the excited talk. I hope you publish my letter Ed-sama!
What say you, readers?
The mag’s going quite good these days, and I liked the article ‘And the acceptance letter goes to…’ by Noor Ejaz Chaudhry (June 1)! It was hilarious. I also wanted to say that a lot of readers are requesting the old writers to come back. Ed, I also miss them but one should be patient. Besides, the old ones started as teenagers and now must be in professional colleges. I think it’s better if we let them to pursue their careers and try to give the new writers a chance, don’t you think?
Uh, hats off to you, if you say so!:P
I appreciate Us because of the wonderful articles published in it. I have discovered Guru’s gender: it’s not a particular person man or woman actually; many people solve our problems. Hats off to me!
Respecting women … so difficult!
Refer to Fiza Zia letter (May 25) in which she stated that these boys are like hungry lions and wolves. I strongly object to this sentence, lions and wolves are very majestic, disciplined and royal animals they will never behave like these two legged creatures who call themselves `ashraf ul mukhloqat` (superior beings).
That sentence should have been: there are many boys out there in our society who act like hungry dogs and jackals. Also, I want to comment on Maria Javed’s letter. (May 25). She says that boys are not taught to respect girls. Right, mainly for two reasons. They are brought up on money got through worst kind of corruption. Then, tell me how they can act normally? Secondly, too many children in a family makes it difficult to manage or control them. Tell me, how can they be taught?

Us enjoys vast readership, and I’m a big fan of your magazine. Through Us, I want to draw the attention of people towards a serious issue: suicide. Suicide rate in Pakistan is becoming higher and higher. Recently, three children between 12 – 14 years of age committed suicide in different areas of Pakistan. What compelled those children to take their own lives? We need to find the reason, the cause of this problem. Are we becoming intolerant or, is this simply because we can’t face a single problem? Could this be happening because of poverty and terrorism? We have to answer these questions.

Dear Us magazine,
I would suggest that you add a recipe corner in your magazine. I love to cook and would love to see the recipes of new desserts in Us, instead of a lot of adverts. I hope you would accept my suggestion.

Narrated ‘Abdullah (R.A):
The Prophet (S.A.W) said, “I am your predecessor at the Lake-Fount (Kauthar) and some men amongst you will be brought to me, and when I will try to hand them some water, they will be pulled away from me by force whereupon I will say, ‘O Lord, my companions!’ Then the Almighty will say, ‘You do not know what they did after you left, they introduced new things into the religion after you.’”
