It was such a gory sight when at about 11am on 16th December 2014,a group of Taliban gunmen made their way into Army Public School in Northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar through a graveyard situated behind the school. They fired shots sporadically at the kids and teachers and this claimed the lives of 145 innocent children with about 186 injured. It was a terrible massacre, a targeted one at that. It is not just a Pakistani tragedy but an International Calamity and one that...

The HIV and AIDS awareness day was a while ago (December 1st) .A few weeks ago I watched a video from one of my role models Troye Sivan. In this video he talked about HIV and AIDS, and the importance of being informed about it. He said that some days ago he had watched a movie called The Normal Heart, it was about HIV and AIDS. He gave a brief description of the events in the movie that lead him to come to the sudden realization that him, a 19 year old gay man, who has had a ‘’...

Unlike many movies, Adam doesn’t try to discover the meaning of life when he is faced with cancer. When the doctor delivers the saddening news, he reacts...

There was a time when I dreamed of a future where I would find myself a decent job, and I used to tell myself that education could get me there. I pushed myself to get the best out of the public education system in this country, and although I failed, I still had options. I wanted to get my qualifications right, so that I could get employed, and I’m pretty sure that most of you can relate to this same thought process - after being assured by our parents over and over again in our...

It lights the pathway and gives one the ability to take rational decisions. It is observation, articulation and interpretation of things we see. Education drives the world, hence its indispensable. It bridges the gap between ignorance and cognition. It amplifies ones reasoning, invokes the passion and stirs up latent potentials in an individual...

“I earn more than my husband”, Naila states while a customer approaches her shop.

At first I waited for a miracle; then decided to take the leap of faith,” she continues. “With a start-up loan of PKR 15,000; I set up a small grocery shop. Five years on, the shop has a steady busi...

Terrorism is hurting our world, it’s harming our children, and it’s killing us every day. Thousands or may be even millions of children are suffering because of terrorist groups, because of some people who thought they represent God; any way, killing, bombing and murdering other people is unacceptable, I don’t care about their reasons, I don’t care about their justifications and excuses, it’s just unacceptable no matter what. I feel really bad when I hear about terroris...
