Hi Ed,
It has always been a great experience reading Us. The issue of August 22 was entertaining as well as informative. The cover story by Muhammad Asif Nawaz and Madiha Asif “Making a difference” was nice to read. However, I think there are a lot of people who don’t like to come into limelight although they help the needy ones. My heart goes to them as well. Overall, it was an interesting issue. ....

8804_8_29_2014_1.gifHere, in Pakistan, we have watched as a mass of men and women and children (not a million, but a multitude nonetheless) have marched mutinously to make a strong statement of dissatisfaction with so many different governments.

The mind always needs to be engaged in something. If we don’t give it something to do, it grabs hold of the nearest energetic thought and magnifies it. Of course, the thoughts we give most attention to are the ones that bother us. Being a worrywart is the easiest thing to do. ....

Dear Roznamah!

Today, I met someone who couldn’t speak Urdu properly. Again.

I know I shouldn’t overreact but, dear Roznamah, it just annoys me that some people can’t speak their national language properly and make fun of me for speaking in Urdu. ....

8808_8_29_2014_1.gifThe lecture had ended before time, an eventuality that sent a wave of short-lived joy through everyone and made the next part of the day bearable. My friend and I decided to take a walk down a corridor of the college where usually no one bothers to wander. We sat against the wall and started our trivial chatter. Students were passing across the corridor parallel to ours and we could watch them easily. It was pretty hot but we didn’t realise that sweat beads had embellished our faces until we saw a young boy of hardly eight years approaching us, distracting us from our never-ending conversation. ....

My step mother is an alien

Dear Guru,
I am a 13-year-old boy. I am studying in class eight in an elite school. My dad is a rich businessman and he is a doting father. He has provided me with all material comfort, but has failed to provide a peaceful atmosphere at home for me. Actually, my parents got separated two years back. My father was having an extra marital affair and my mother found it out. ....
