The power of forgiveness

This is with reference to the article “The power of forgiveness” by Rizwana Naqvi (YW, October 31). The article reminds us that we, as humans, make many mistakes but the good thing is we can forgive ourselves and others too.

It is wrong to think forgiveness is a sign of weakness because forgiveness is the attribute of strong people and those who forgive means they are internally strong and brave enough to face their faults and that of others by forgiving them.

Wonder crafts

This is with reference to the Wonder crafts section by Asif Ali. The section is wonderful as it teaches us about how to make seemingly useless things into useful crafts. During this lockdown period, when we got bored inside our houses, I and my friends, tried making various crafts described in this section. One of which was the shoebox basket, it was a wonderful and useful craft and we really enjoyed making it.

I have learnt making a lot of crafts through this section and appreciate YW for giving its readers a bundle of interesting stuff to read and try out.

Little Miss Chaos

This is regarding the story “Little Miss Chaos” by Maryam Habib (YW, October 3). The story taught us to stay clean and not make a mess. If we always clean our house or our room, there would be no clutter laying around and we would always stay organised.

My favourite part was when the girl learned her lesson of staying clean. Apart from that, I would like to share my love for YW. Every section has its uniqueness; I have never seen a versatile magazine like YW. It contains almost everything in it, like opinion, quotes, jokes, riddles, quizzes, features, crafts, recipes, reviews and a lot more.

I just can’t imagine what would have happened without YW. The magazine has proven to be my biggest inspiration in life.

Crazy for a selfie

This is regarding the article “Crazy for a selfie” by Ayesha Ilyas(YW, October 31). The article made me realise how easily we waste our time to impress people by clicking selfies, in which we look good and happy even if we are not happy in reality. Normally, while out with friends and family, we are busy in taking pictures and don’t enjoy the moment in time. This is wrong, one should always live in the present moment and enjoy life rather than wasting time in taking selfies. Articles like this are necessary for the youth of today, as they remind them of all the wrong doings.
