Since its inception in 1947, Pakistan has faced various issues from social inequality, political instability, to economic disparity. These issues have been and are still thwarting the growth of Pakistan. To this, many such measures were taken to eradicate this menace. However, stability in the country is still a distant dream. Pakistan has been bestowed upon by nature many natural resources. Unfortunately, they have been unevenly distributed by the elite class of society, creating social inequality. Moreover, politicians and their personnel have won seats on the rhetoric that they will bring social equality and justice in society. On this point, the country’s various governments have, in particular, failed to provide the fundamental rights to its people. And unless these inequalities are eradicated, peace and prosperity for this countr...
If paintings could say everything on a 24 × 40 cm board, I would be the opposite of not being an artist. The flow, the glow, the soul, the whole, the excitement, the tranquility amidst fulfilment, O me, O God! Paint me a rose and thorn my stems- leave me imperfect. Wall my walls with humanity and save me an inn to live in. At least thence I would tell my stories outside a frame. Outside acrylic. Outside canvas.
Howbeit that a painting be more peaceful than sunshine and safer than moonlight yet spring from a taunting mind? Maybe art cares less about our insecurities. Maybe she does care. Maybe the pose of the wired lady with beads on her waist and ankle is erotic rather than an epitome of pain. Maybe the Yin and Yang symbol was just drawn to be an emblem of unity rather than the light and darkness, or masculine and femi...
The management are beginning to express fears over the spate of indecent dressing on our campus, especially by ladies, noting this phenomenon, that was once alien to Africa, is gradually becoming a norm and is contributing to the increase in the rate of immorality and other ills plaguing the society and campus.
Recalled that, the management through the student affairs division in collaboration with the security unit ordered the men in blue (Security) to be chasing back to hostel any student seen dress indecently. The men in blue are mounted at various corner in the university at early hour of the day assessing the outfits of every students particularly ladies.
One of the notable values of Africa is its rich cultural background, and as such, there is no time in our history that indecent dressing can be linked to our heritage...
By the end of the year 2019, it is estimated that 7.7 billion individuals will inhabit the Earth and from that statistic, a sizeable 32% belongs to the multitasking, globally competitive and technologically – attached young adults under the banner of the Generation Z (Gen Z).
Spanning from the late 90s to the early 2000s, Gen Z upholds a reputation for being digital natives --- the kind that has powerful digital tools and transformative tech innovations at its beck and call. Studies reveal that the Gen Z acquire their first phone by the time they reach the age of 10 and further research notes that 12% spend 15 hours on their phones each day and this occurs at a global scale....
- Education System
Ok, before you lash out on me, I’m not blaming the whole education system of the country. I’m just pointing out some aspects of the education system that result in mental stress in the youth.
The reservation system: The reservation system in India depends upon the cast of the people. According to the reservation system, 50% of quota in government jobs and education will be reserved for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs) and the Other Backward Classes (OBCs). This m...
In society, a major influence in the way people act or express themselves lies in how people in the community perceive their roles to be. For example, mainstream entertainment casts female actors to portray affectionate, dramatic or even flirtatious characters often wearing frilly dresses or those that depict the feminine nature of fashion whereas male actors are represented as apathetic, guarded or even sadistic. The preconceived notions and beliefs regarding the attributes or characteristics that must be possessed by a particular gender are known as gender stereotyping.
Gender stereotype, in its most harmful form, limits the capacity of genders to optimize their skills and take on opportunities simply because it goes aga...
I love darkness from my childhood nevertheless it is true that I afraid like every kid but my chaios for it never ends up.
Dark usually nights don't discriminate. Colour & geometry of traditional eyes view don't capture night's vision.
Nights began with a new world that is everyday just right at the top of us but we get a chance to look at it only at night. Generally it is said that day gives us clarity which is true but night gives us the possibility!!
The darkness of infinite space & millions of stars make me ever clueless about the possibility of new existence & the presence of deep world. I listened dozens & dozens of story from my grandpa.
I never wonder how people miss the sunrise but more then that I wonder how people miss the night sky.
Technically it's dark but in rea...
Around the globe, over 60% of children aged sixteen years old and above have an account on a particular social network which encompasses Facebook, Twitter and Instagram among others. This is not a surprising phenomenon. When you look around, schoolchildren are often preoccupied with their phones in an attempt to battle their fear of missing out on the latest happenings surrounding their lives and the lives of their peers. They spend 116 minutes a day sharing content and browsing images and videos on online platforms.
In most academes, social media is viewed as a menace towards the educational growth of learners thus the ban of its use with...
Liberia has since advanced its development programs and partially revitalized its priority sectors through a United Nations Mission(UNMIL); and a set of assistance provided by the United States, China, European Union, and other donor institutions, has buttressed the country in the rebuilding of its health care sector, education sector, and natural resource management sectors.
The country has also stabilized politically with two democratically-elected presidents since a 1980 coup that led to sequential eras of civil wars across the country. Liberia former President and 2011 Nobel Prize Winner, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, was elected in 2005 as the very first woman president in Africa’s p...
A need is something that is an absolute requirement for survival primarily and every living thing, man especially has got survival instinct in him. On this side of Creation, we all do all we can to make ends meet, in order to keep body and soul together; no breathing human is exempted from the rat race for relevance, eminence, and excellence to keep one's social influence or prominence. If one doesn't achieve all in his life time , he transfers the desire to his children and that continues fro generations. There is, no end to the craving.
Why do we feel a greater sense of responsibility and desire to amass more even when we seem to have laid hold on our needs so to speak?
This could only mean one thing. THERE IS A NEED STILL LEFT TO BE MET!
Every man is in need of a NEED! Build all t...
The family found themselves on the wrong end as many who criticised them do not understand their customs and traditions. Granted that as with many good things there is always bound to be some level of abuse, it is not different in this regard. That said, the issue of bride price and its significance is an entire discussion on its own which is beyond the scope of this article.
For many Nilotic communities in Africa, cattle are a hot commodity such that those who have them are willing to die protecting them and those who do not are ready to kill to acquire them. Previously, young boys who would go herding cattle would use traditional spears to protect the cattle however this has changed. Nowadays, many of these herders carry automatic rifles which have caused a tremendous shift in the age-old cattle raids issue. A...

Always good to hear about your experience with you and your. I am writing to apply my calibre and you??
When I wrote less seems complicated as if someone don't understand what I have been working on. But the secret is in reading the silent message that is not written. But the question is how can you read what's not written??
Think upon it for a while. And you be me you know it all. But how you will be me that's even a bigger question??
So what about human psychology in all this...
Well it's just you!!
The study of you is human psychology. And that you for you is "me" and not I. With such little ease I can say you be I but don't know who be you!
To find you in you is your job. I can stay with you but don't just rely on I. Rely on You!

As per data, provided by WHO around 450 million or 1 out of 4 people are suffering from mental health disorders. More than 40% of countries have no policies regarding mental health issue. There are several mental health disorders, anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsion where depression is ranked on 4th as disease burden cause. It is estimated that by 2020 it will be ranking 2nd. This data and reading about mental health sounds really big, and unrealistic to many. Many of us can’t imagine 1 out of 4 of us is suffering from a mental disorder, it sounds like umm no not us, right?
Major causes of stress and depression are found out to be any kind of abuse (majorly emotional), conflict, and loss of your close people, genetics and certain medication. If we discuss and go ...
Our country is everything that surrounds us, but an individual cannot care about all of the numerous/millions of issues and problems that occurs in the country. It is realistically impossible to suffer for every appalling acts of ill in the country or perhaps, agonize over every single poor person who lacks good drinking water, hospitals, basic sanitation, quality education etc…. This is why my ambition is not to concentrate on helping the entire country or help solve the issues of the entire country now, but to focus on lending a hand to a hungry child in my neighborhood and community. I improve the country by improving a tiny part of it.
Several years ago, I was convinced that solving the problems of country was the job of the government or so...
Homesickness. If you traveled abroad at least once before, then you definitely know how it feels. If not, and you are planning to study abroad in the near future, then this is something you must be ready to face – and overcome.
Basically, homesickness is the feeling of anxiety and loneliness when you are being away from home. Being pulled out of your usual ‘nest’ and thrown into an entirely new culture, forced to communicate only in a tongue not your own, is a radical change that gives rise to those negative feelings. Sooner or later, you will begin to miss everything back at your home country (your bed, your family, your country food, etc.). Eventually, you will become homesick, and the exciting journey of studying abroad that you always looked forward to becomes a gloomy nightmare you wish would end as fast as ...
My mind cannot unsee the images screaming through my ears.
My mind cannot unsee the lies of a promised forever.
My mind cannot filter through the memories of cries.
My mind cannot hold back the raging anger for lost time.
I truly cannot unsee what it would be without anything being wrong with me.
There are always some times when I want to forget what I felt.
There are always times when I want to un-touch people and their reflection in my life alone.
There are times when I want to un-walk a path taken with a friend.
There are times I want to un-say things to My family.
There are times when we want to run into wild places with oddities for us to fit perfectly in.
And then there are these gushing, golly smiles that make all this un-familiarity very much basic.<...
Equality is a wrong way that is implanted largely in heads. The direction itself is wrong. Because of past struggles & various infrastructure to torture the people's in slavery. The rights & revolutions took place & boomed the situation & we're in a better life right now.
For that time the requirements & mindset was struggling with situations & fights are going on at all possible levels of slaveries. Which was right that's why we're here in a position to take charge of the life that comes out of it. But due to slavery periods majority people's around the globe got a tendency to manage & maintain the self security & deep inside be defensive which seems right at surface level observation but when we analyse & go deep inside it's only a sensitivity that is always in alert mode with all senses ope...
Although I wasn’t sure of what my passion is, by early 2015, I was a young, innocent First Degree Holder in Zoology waiting to be deployed by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). It finally came in May, anxiety rushed through my guts, I zoomed to the Café to print my call-up letter and see where I had been posted.
Right there, I was staring at the shock of my life!
I had never been out of South-West (Nigeria) but I had been thrown to Zamfara state, an extreme end of North-West (Nigeria), believed to be the least developed part of our developing country. The news was in town, “NYSC had sent call-up letters”. My parents called to ask where I had been posted, after I broke the news, there was silence over the phone, don’t be disturbed by it, we will work on a redeployment for you,
I always seem to make myself somewhat sad, and unconfident, because I always believed that “pretty is not my thing”. So, I cleaned off all my make-up, undressed, ordered a pizza, and cherry coke. Anyway, I thought that I didn’t have to go on a diet because I was “ugly”, even when I was thin or fat I still believed I was ugly! Would you believe me if I said that it was everything I’ve thought for the last 5 years?
I later found out that it wasn’t just me, who was unsatisfied with the way I looked. About 97 percent of girls think that they are ugly, or unsatisfied with the way their body look or different type of unsatisfaction about their appearance.Only 3 percent of them thinks they are perfect.
Another reason why I was unhappy, was because of the...
It is a natural way and the only way. No one comes into this world by his choice of gender. So, naturally, gender based discrimination has to be of no existence. But, unfortunately, the gender inequality exists in the world. Gender equality is something that we have strived for, for a long time. Be it in terms of gender roles, right to education, right to reproduction decisions, etc. The times have changed tremendously, but much more needs to be done. Gender inequality acknowledges the fact that being of a different gender leads to difference in lived experiences.
Women empowerment is the ultimate key to achieve our goal of gender equality. Only if we will be able to let women enjoy the same rights, choices and freedom, then our society will be ideal as it should be. Empowering women is also an indispensable to...
Once I knew this girl who was known by many names in the society. Names that were given to her by different people with different flaws, different habits, and different thoughts. Some were her relatives, some were family members, some were friends, and some were boys having no other logical work to do obviously! They all gave her names as per their amenity. She on the other hand, gathered all of it and tried to do her best with all her vulnerabilities.
I can tell you she wasn't just a normal girl. Yeah yeah she loved to read books, eat cakes n chocolates, dance in bathroom laughing on her own which makes her quite normal. But she wasn't really that of normal. Big fuzzy hair, dark skin, no idea of what she was wearing and why, don't know how to talk to others were some of her attributes. Living like a wallflower wasn't ...

In the dark room
Doors were closed.
Don`t you have plans
open the door?
It is just you
Who locks up himself.
Another year has come,
A little sunlight reaches my room.
As the window opens
The wind blows on my face.
Another year has come,
No sunlight reaches my room.
The window no longer be opened
The winds no longer be felt.
Sitting in the corner
To save me in this room. ...

Students can be children, teenagers, or adults who are going to school, but it may also be other people who are learning, such as in college or university. A younger student is often called a pupil.

I'm willing you to give a reference from an old Hindi movie that is everybody's experience.
"Bura kije, Bura hoga ; Bhala kije Bhala hoga. Yahi likh-likh ke kya hoga. ...." & the song goes on. Let me first translate it with best of my knowledge. It means "When we do good, good happens; When we do bad, Bad will happen. So why to write it over & over again.. ...."

If you look at the definition of social media you will find that it is the interaction amongst people in which they create, share, or exchange information, and idea in virtual communities and network. And Islam appreciate and welcome all forms of advancement as far as it does not go against the teaching of Muhammad (S.A.W) so my brothers and sisters if we look at the time of Prophet most of the people are unlettered that means they rely on memo...
Recall that in December last year, it was reported that a student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Abiodun Babatola was murdered by armed robbers while phones, laptops and other valuables were carted away in Adam and Eve hostel, a private hostel facility.
In the words of the caretaker of the hostel, Mr. Sunday, who corroborated Premium Times report on the murder, “the deceased only came to visit a friend but it was saddening that he was stabbed in the head while other valuables were stolen. It was a day I cannot forget.”
Meanwhile, this correspondent gathered that, a group of bandits invaded a duplex along...
