  • Nokia CARE Lahore Customer Service is Pathetic

    Talha Dar
    7 Jan 2015 | 4:41 am
    It’s no hidden fact that Nokia Lumia has been struggling for a while to make its place in the smartphone market. It’s nowhere in the Top 5 smartphone makers of 2014. Although it’s mainly due to the fact that Windows Phone is a relatively new platform but the pathetic Nokia CARE customer service isn’t helping the cause either. I’ve had to visit the Nokia CARE Lahore a several times and I must say that I was almost always disappointed by the quality of service. I thought it was about time that I write about what’s wrong with Nokia CARE Lahore so that…

  • Has it already been a year?

    16 Jan 2015 | 7:37 pm
    As I sat on his bed this morning exactly a year after my Abbaji breathed his last, memories engulfed me of times gone past – of Ammi and Abbaji watching cricket together praying for Team Pakistan to win, of jumping with joy when the team won and forgiving them when they didn’t. Memories of them listening to mushairas, qawwalis and ghazals together or doubling up with laughter while watching Moeen Akhtar, fifty-fifty and other comedy shows on television. Or just watching the news and discussing political issues. That companionship lasted so many decades. It was no wonder then…
  • A tribute to Najma Sadeque who died yesterday at age 72

    8 Jan 2015 | 9:16 pm
    Najma Sadeque was many things to many people – a journalist for over three decades, an activist for many important causes whether it be  human rights, gender rights, the environment, education, economic rights, land rights – you name it. If there was an injustice and Najma spotted it, she would take it on as a personal mission to take a stand against it – not by yelling off the rooftops but by researching the root causes and campaigning for reform through the power of the pen (or the keyboard). Najma was a soft-spoken person with a great sense of humor and the ability to…

    Each January they celebrated their birthdays at midnight together. Abbaji’s birthday fell on January 5 and Ammi’s on January 6. We loved the fact that the celebrations continued for two days. They asked us not to make a fuss but we always did. Our parents were very special and whatever little we could do to show them how much we loved them, was nowhere near enough. They deserved much much more. Ammi was a pillar of strength for Abbaji and for all of us. It was difficult to understand how a soft, gentle and loving woman could be the glue that held us together. She was…
  • He was an amazing father and a great man – Happy birthday Abbaji!

    5 Jan 2015 | 9:22 am
    He would have been 90 today if he had not passed away last year. A lot of people have said that we were lucky to have had him in our lives for so many years – and I know that we were indeed fortunate. But no matter how old a father is when he passes away, it is too soon. It  leaves a vacuum that is impossible to fill. No day passes by that we don’t think of him, of the person that he was, and all the things he did for us and others. I was speaking with someone the other day about Abbaji – and he said “Mushtaque Sahab did so much for so many people. He was…

The Sindh police, based on the notion of “equal opportunity for all classes” has come out with a car numbering scheme that enables the same car to be used by any citizen, criminal or policeman. In simple words, the car is painted, numbered and suitably monogrammed in a manner that it meets all three requirements simultaneously.

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:38 pm
    By Saad Hafiz The ghastly terrorist assault in Paris at the office of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo is a direct attack on freedom of speech, thought and expression, the basis on which all open, democratic societies are created. The bedrock of such societies is the protection of life, pluralism, openness and freedom of religion, conscience and security. Whether we agree or not, the value of publications like Charlie Hebdo lies in what they represent: an aversion to giving in to illogical extremism of any kind and holding the right to offend people on sensitive matters like religion.

    By Shanzeh Iqbal How far lifting the moratorium on death penalty would be effective in curtailing terrorism is a matter of debate now. The executions seen as an antidote to terrorism are discussed by some analysts as a feeble method. They argue that the real terrorist has a genuine faith and is not afraid of death; rather he or she is willing to embrace it. So the death penalty may not act as a strong deterrent. In such a scenario, the need for taking concrete steps for eliminating this hazard of terrorism becomes more important especially when the country is in the grip of an existential…

    In the beginning, Mohammad Ali Jinnah was not too sure that Pakistan was a viable option but slowly he realized that there was no other way to safeguard the interests of the Muslims in the Indian subcontinent. He did not fear that the Muslims would be persecuted because of their religion but what was more evident to him was that unless there was a separate piece of land for the Muslims, they would be excluded from all advancement and the power would become vested in the close-knit structure of Hindu society. This is why in March of 1940, Mohammad Ali Jinnah proposed that the Muslims should be…

    Have you ever wondered why the publication of anti-Pakistan books has become a major growth industry today?
