    It was about time that we did the Nokia Lumia 1320 unboxing. Since, earlier this week we reviewed the Nokia Lumia 1320′s big brother, here. If you have read the review than you would notice that there is not much difference between Lumia 1320 and Lumia 1520. Ofcourse, there is a huge price gap and specifications difference as well but physically they are up to some extent the same. Nokia Lumia 1320 also has the same 6″ display, but the device itself is heavier and has rounded corners design. Unlike the big brother, the back is also removable.Enough with the talking, let’s…

Unlike ageing Nazis or Rwandan génocidaires, death squad leader Anwar Congo and his friends have not been forced by history to admit they participated in crimes against humanity. Instead, they have written their own triumphant history, becoming role models for millions of young paramilitaries.

    She was an angel sent down from heaven to make sure that we had an absolutely amazing childhood and she left no stone unturned in ensuring that, as we were growing up, our lives were filled with love and laughter. She taught us what it meant to be gentle, compassionate, loving and generous human beings. Even her silence was comfortine; her smile made all our pain and worries disappear. Her life centered around us – her family. She was the best mother in the world and all of us adored her.

  • Why do we not pay attention to signs?

    12 Jan 2014 | 9:58 pm
    On Sunday morning I found the grocery cupboards were bare so off I went to Metro armed with a long list of things that were needed for the house. As I drove into the Metro carpark, I intuitively parked in the spot closest to the entrance. But as I got out of the car, I noticed this sign. A couple of ‘d’s’ missing no doubt but the message was clear so I got back into the car and looked around for alternative parking. The guard who was stationed in the carpark stopped me and said it was okay for me to park there and asked why I was looking for a new spot. I explained to him…
  • Happy birthday my dearest Ammi

    6 Jan 2014 | 10:00 am
    Midnight  on the night of January 5 and 6 had always been a special occasion for me. It was celebration time. Abbaji’s birthday falls on January 5; Ammi was born on January 6 … they always cut a cake together at midnight. There were smiles all round; exchange of gifts and cards; all of us singing ‘Happy birthday’ slightly off-tune. Those were magical and happy times for our family. I remember how as they grew old together, they still continued the tradition of exchanging birthday cards and gifts – Abbaji still bought for Ammi pieces of jewelery and some of the…

Thousands of people around the world make these resolutions every year only to break them a few days into the New Year. Better not to make them at all. However, there was one resolution I was bent on making and keeping. I was going to start blogging again. There has been too much of a break. Friends, colleagues and youngsters from universities have been messaging me for months to ask why I don’t write…

However, keeping good faith, the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) has put forward “Deceptive Marketing Guidelines” which will maintain the Section 10 of the Competition Act, 2010. In order to enforce this part of the law and stop anti-competitive conduct on part of the telecom companies in advertising, the guidelines…

    A few weeks ago, the prominent journalist Raza Rumi was attacked. Now another prominent journalist and one of the most famous anchorpersons, Hamid Mir too has had a close encounter with death. As these sentences are being written, Mr. Mir still remains in critical state. PTH strongly condemns this cowardly attack.

  • The dangers of being a journalist in Pakistan

    18 Apr 2014 | 5:04 am
    In Pakistan, it is said that discourse is dominated by one kind of narrative. That narrative is primarily right wing in its orientation and is characterized by fusion of religion and ultra nationalism and is further supplemented by hatred and deep mistrust of the outside world. Countering such narrative is essential if we have to get out of this quagmire. However, those who can present arguments against this narrative are few and further more do not get adequate space in the media, particularly Urdu press and electronic media. But even those who do get access, have to face a lot of dangers.

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:31 am
    Raza Habib Raja Right now, as it was being expected by many before the elections, army and the government of PML (N) are in a skirmish. PML (N) has come with a very heavy mandate and since it is the beginning of its tenure, therefore it is in confrontational mode with the powerful military. The case on Musharraf has morphed into a litmus test for the government’s resilience and for its ability to bring armed forces under proper civilian oversight. As the “battle” rages on and civil-military relations once again, look set to be redefined, some quarters, namely TV media and sections of…
  • Are You Sure Nothing Can Change?

    11 Apr 2014 | 3:21 am
    Raza Habib Raja Imran Khan and Modi are two very different politicians. Yet there are some commonalities. Both enjoy support from largely well intentioned white collar class and also other groups, who want better governance and control over corruption. Both politicians have a nationalist outlook with a stress towards “standing up” against the outside world. Both have generated a halo effect where their good reputation about financial honesty has created a positive impression about other attributes also and made the negative traits less important in the eyes of the supporters. And both…
  • A Dysfunctional State

    8 Apr 2014 | 9:46 pm
    by Saad Hafiz Pakistan’s societal, economic and political travails place it in a category of deeply dysfunctional and nearly ungovernable states. Generally speaking, dysfunctional states exhibit high degrees of institutional inconsistency, social malaise, ideological confusion, political malfunction and national paranoia. As a consequence, such states are unable to leverage their people’s histories and traditions to construct effective formal institutions with wide legitimacy; nor can they draw on the social capital embedded in cohesive groups to facilitate economic, political, and social…

  • Super Bowl Betting in Perspective

    David Glisan
    13 Nov 2013 | 8:31 am
    The Super Bowl is this biggest betting event of the year. Actually, a little qualification is necessary—the Super Bowl is the biggest single day betting event in North America. Overall, the NCAA basketball tournament aka ‘March Madness’ is a bigger event and the Champions’ League soccer final is the biggest single day event worldwide. That being said, the Super Bowl is a very big deal. Last year, Nevada sportsbooks took a record $98.9 million dollars worth of action on the event. Since the amount of money wagered in Nevada is only 1% of so of the total amount bet on the…
  • Will the Weather be a Sub Plot of Super Bowl XLVIII

    7 Nov 2013 | 11:14 am
    Super Bowl XLVIII is several months away but there is already a fair amount of trepidation about the possibility of cold—and possibly snowy—weather for the NFL’s marquee game.  That’s because the 2014 NFL championship game will take place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey which is the home field of both the New York Giants and New York Jets.  More significantly, it’ll be the first Super Bowl to ever be held at an outdoor venue in cold weather.  As a result, the weather could play a much greater factor than usual. In most years the Super Bowl is…

  • Is Pakistan Heading for Civil War?

    Syed Muhammad Mujtaba
    22 Apr 2014 | 3:08 pm
    History has numerous records of civil wars, and the the profound subjectivity of each war gives us good reason to think they cannot be grouped under a single empirical umbrella. With the respective contexts of their conditions in view, they defy being seen through one specific prism. Nevertheless, a civil war could be defined as a war having the trait of “insurgency” occurring amid conflicting factors born from within a state. Most commonly, civil wars happen between state powers and citizen groups of a country. Civil wars have also been fought between two or more ethnic-nations inside a…

    This article builds on one of my previous articles in which I argued that education should not be traded as commodities. I was on my way back home, tired and hopeless, when a banner struck all my attention. The banner showed, among a number of best-seller books for schoolchildren, a warning: All Rights Reserved! Wait a second, rights reserved for educational books?? You mean education-related properties need copyrights? Should this social good also become a private property as those of corporations?  c’mon, what is their point to restrict knowledge? Many of us have noticed similar…
