    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.

    1 Apr 2014 | 12:21 am
    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. On April 1 eleven years ago Ammi breathed her last and left a gap in our lives that no-one can…
  • 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…

  • 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…

    Raza Habib Raja I have written before also that for me India holds a special place in my heart and I feel connected to it emotionally. Besides that as a student of politics also, India for me is an enigma with respect to its ability to sustain a balanced combination of democracy, secularism and stability over almost seven decades. It has to be understood that even in relatively homogeneous countries, these factors are difficult to combine and balance. And yet, India despite being so diverse and complex, has so far done well. It has not been a smooth ride but political will has always been…
  • The Legacy of Bhutto: Hero or Villain?

    4 Apr 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Raza Habib Raja I remember going through Stanley Wolpert’s very good book on this enigmatic politician. The first sentence more or less defines Bhutto’s legacy. Wolpert while researching his book on Jinnah wrote that during his stay in Pakistan, he found out that people either hated or loved Bhutto. He also wondered about the amazing contradictions in the personality of this amazing politician. Today, as we stand in the middle of 2014, and look back into the strange chequered history of this country, no discussion on politics, culture, economic and social ideology, military and its role…

At this hour of night while we all await for that sun to shine again on all of us which Pakistan’s non-Muslim and Muslim founding fathers and mothers thought of. Jews have lived among different Islamic cultures and got accustomed to it, at times total assimilation of different cultures and religions may not be…

  • Super Bowl Betting in Perspective

    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…

    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…

    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…
