Hey Ed,
This is the first time I am writing to you and I think your magazine is just superb. I love how you come up with a cover story for every occasion. One thing that I try not to miss is the ‘Trust Us’ section. I like how sensibly the Guru handles each and every problem. All in all, you guys are doing a great job. Keep it up!

8738_8_22_2014_1.gifYet another Independence anniversary has been celebrated with joy and pride by the Pakistani people all over the country. It would be so good to somehow retain this spirit of patriotism beyond 14 August and carry it forward through out the year! Most people tend to forget their differences while listening to ‘milli naghmay’, decorating their houses with flags and streamers and of course setting the inevitable crackers and gunfire at midnight, but that is where it ends for them. From 15 August, most of us usually get busy complaining about the inefficiency of our government. ....

Rhyme ‘n’ Reason
In literature, one of the strongest devices is imagery wherein the author uses words and phrases to create “mental images” for the reader. Imagery helps the reader to visualize more realistically the author’s writings. The usage of metaphors, allusions, descriptive words and similes amongst other literary forms in order to “tickle” and awaken the readers’ sensory perceptions is referred to as imagery. Imagery is not limited to only visual sensations, but also refers to igniting kinesthetic, olfactory, tactile, gustatory, thermal and auditory sensations as well. For example, “the gushing brook stole its way down the lush green mountains, dotted with tiny flowers in a riot of colours and trees coming alive with gaily chirping birds.” ....

8741_8_22_2014_1.gif‘Click, click, clickety clack … bang!’ The sudden noise woke me up. I looked around in confusion, and realised where I was. It definitely wasn’t my bed and this definitely wasn’t my mum waking me up. Slowly, I pulled the sheets off and looked around the dingy little room and saw the baby cockroach climb across the light switch. I was in the doctor’s lounge on duty! I checked my watch; it was one o’ clock in the morning. So I’d only slept for thirty minutes, I thought to myself.

Dear Diary,

It is miraculous what a hot cuppa tea does to a bruised ego and aching nerves. It is also therapeutic for throbbing guilt, arising from a sense of helplessness against “imposed idleness”. (No, I am not grounded)

Is she fake or genuine?

Salam Guru,

You have solved my problems before, but this time my problem is quite serious. I am doing O’ levels. I belong to a middle-class, educated family. My parents are very liberal and they never stop me from going out with my friends or from doing anything that I want to. ....
