Child Labour By ‘Syeda Fatima Anjum’


Child labour is very common in our society. We daily see many kids going to their schools in the morning in uniforms. They look very innocent. On the other side there are some kids who kill their dreams and do labour work in their childhood due to the poor financial condition of their families. They overlook all their aspirations and work hard under materialistic and psychological pressures. Child labour is taking place in many areas like industries, road side shops, auto workshops, tea stalls and domestic homes. The age of child labour is usually between 5-10 years. It’s an abuse to our children.

Humanising education By ‘Yasir Hussain’


The post Zarb-e-Azab narrative and the ISPR-sponsored song Hamay Dushman Ke Bachon Ko Parhana Hai (We have to teach enemies’ children) are ignoring the writing on the wall. We might need to shift our attention to ‘fixing’ our education rather than spreading it to every corner of the country. We need to humanise education first before we think of using education as a tool for humanisation. Education is a sociocultural phenomenon, thus existing socio-culturally on the levels where humans exist. It has its history as old as the human history, informing and being informed in a reciprocal relationship

Knowledge or Degree?


When a student passes his college, he reaches the pinnacle of his life in which he has to decide his career which leads him to accomplish his desired goals through education. But sadly in our country education has become a mere "word". People are more towards getting their degrees rather than focusing on what they are learning.

Books Vs Computers


It was only yesterday when my cousins, studying at one of the most elite school, told me that their school's library only had a handful of books while there were more computers there. They said they were supposed to read e-books on them but most children just surfed sites and played games there. I was deeply saddened to know how they did not like reading but watching movies. On a field trip, their school was taking them to a cinema to show the latest Batman movie.
