However, sports anchoring - an exciting new field in Pakistan - still remains largely untapped and has, as such, a lot of scope for the right talent.

Most of the sports journalists we see on different sports channel have been uprooted from newspapers and transplanted in the electronic media. There is a serious dearth of new faces to carry the ball forward. Altamish Jiwa, GEO TV’s sports presenter and correspondent, is a charismatic young anchor. ....

Mystic Vibes
By Hafiz-e Shiraz
My friend has fled! Alas, my friend has fled,
And left me nought but tears and pain behind!
Like smoke above a flame caught by the wind,

Drunk with desire, I seized Love’s cup divine,
But she that held it poured the bitter wine
Of Separation into it and fled. ....

9594_11_28_2014_1.gifWhen it comes to fast bowling, this country is seemingly blessed with a conveyor belt that produces one gem after the other. Not so long ago the extraordinarily talented left arm fast bowler Muhammad Aamer emerged from nowhere to carry the baton from the likes of Shoaib Akhtar.

Pakistan already had pacemen like Umar Gul and Muhammad Asif in the setup back then. The spot fixing fiasco derailed the process big time and Muhammad Aamer and Muhammad Asif who were on the verge of forming the deadliest opening bowling pair in International cricket were then banned from the game. ....

Our teachers are so rude

Dear Guru,
I am 15 years old. I am studying in 9th grade. Next year, I’ll appear for board exams. I know that I have to work really hard for the next two years because my admission to a reputed college will depend on my matriculation result. But, unfortunately, I am not lucky enough to have good teachers. It’s not that they are not qualified! It’s their method of teaching, which is very conventional. ....
