International Day of the Girl Child: Areeba

International day of the Girl Child, which is celebrated on October 11, aims to create awareness about the rights of a girl child across the globe. One of the basic rights every child has is that of getting equal opportunity to acquire education, which in a country like ours is usually neglected, especially in case of a girl child. According to a report published by UNESCO, Pakistan ranks the second with the most out-of-school children in the world with only Nigeria ahead of us. It also revealed that Pakistan is in the bottom 10 countries in terms of the proportion of poor girls who have never gone to school. It stated that 62% girls in Pakistan, aged between 7 and 15, have never spent time in a classroom. These stats are much higher in comparison to 30% in India and 9% in Bangladesh.

Tale: The end of story!

Not much to know, not much to say, but i am pretty sure, it wasn't planned to end this way. Wish i could have done something, sad that the time flied, not much to explain, not much to understand, with the bitter taste of love's distrust, i watched their hearts, turn into dust...

The tale disturbed me, confused me, shook me, kind of destroyed me. But the belief is strong, and the faith still exist: "Everything happens for a reason, and the reason is always good."

Transportation and Issues: Karachi

Karachi, one of the largest cities of the world, the only mega city of the world where a middle-age mode of public transport is still in fashion. Its local transport consists of minibuses, coaches and large buses (all with a separate compartment for women) typically provide the cheapest way to commute across the city. Then comes rickshaws and taxis cater to the travelling needs of upper middle class, after that radio cabs or white cabs are frequently used by upper class travellers.
