Wikileaks: Loose lips sink ships

I think, the series of leaks have been nothing but calculated move on USA’s part on the global chess board; (or board-game of ‘risk’) nothing new ever breaks out - all the old stories that were hashed to death in the media by analysts and investigative reporters and usually termed conspiracy theories by USA officially have come crawling out of the woodwork, yet again…the only twist in the tale this time? We have loads more juicy gossip to laugh over! By Fareeha Qayoom

Kinnaird is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of the country. It has a huge campus with a number of academic blocks, hostels, and wonderful lush green fields and flower gardens. This spring, Kinnaird was recognized by the Horticulture Society for its beautiful landscapes and flower gardens, adding yet another trophy to its already impressive list of honors: ‘best gardens’ among all the Educational Institutions.

Sugar crisis? What sugar Crisis?

I was a little surprised – I mean, why protest sugar price hike only? Why not everything else too that’s going wrong in our lives because of current government’s policies? When the prices of all essential commodities (including indispensable foodstuffs, everyday staples, energy, power and fuel) are rising without rhyme or reason, without any notice, just like that, why were the folk out on the streets to protest the prices of sugar?

A tale of two summer jackets

The so-called tailors in this town don’t seem to understand that cutting fabric patterns is like applied geometry, men’s cuts are straight lines and angles while women’s cuts are soft curves and angles – to get the measurements right – you need the ‘x’ and ‘y’ coordinates of any given point of measurement!

Is organized religion losing its relevance in our world?

Pew research certainly seems to think so. More and more world citizens are opting out of living religious lives –religion is definitely losing its relevance, influence and the ‘cool’ factor By Fareeha Qayoom

Playing Ostrich

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows But my sorrows, they learned to swim Surrounding me, going down on me Spilling over the brim Waves of regret and waves of joy I reached out for the one I tried to destroy You...you said you'd wait 'til the end of the world By Fareeha Qayoom

Procrastination and Writer’s block – My Typical Day

I am suffering from over work. Yes, I think it’s a disease too. You develop a tunnel vision. You become compulsive and obsessive (about your current obsession). Which I am anyway – compulsively obsessive…when you add work to the mix, it becomes something totally beyond normal. All work and no play makes you a dull Jill (or Jack whatever your particular case). By Fareeha Qayoom

New Toys

Anyway, I no longer need to buy loads of books when I can download them on my phone for free and read them whenever and where ever convenient. It’s portable, light-weight, and I can hold it in my hand and can read any time, any place, even in bed. By Fareeha Qayoom
