From couch potato to a gardener

This is regarding the story “From couch potato to gardener” by Sidra Sozer (YW, March 9). The story shows the importance of being active physically and participating in day-to-day tasks.

These days, kids often spend all day sitting and playing games on their phones, instead of moving around. They often use bikes for short distances instead of walking. Such habits make one lazy and lead to health problems like obesity. But if children become physically active, it will ultimately result in their good health.

Struggles of Farzan

This is with reference to the story “Struggles of Farzan” by Rasheen Fatima (YW, March 16). Farzan’s story teaches us that working hard and believing in ourselves is important for success. Even though he had trouble with school at first, Farzan kept trying and his grades got much better. This shows us that if we work hard and believe in ourselves, we can do well.

The story also shows us how valuable education is and how lucky we are to have it.

Overall, Farzan’s story reminds us that with determination and effort, we can reach our goals.

The blessed iftar experience

This is regarding the article “The blessed iftar experience” by Shahmeer Asif (YW, March 23). The writer highlighted the true essence of Ramazan and how special and joyful iftar gatherings are during this time.

The writer added that how breaking the fast together brings people closer to each other, making them feel connected and caring towards one another. Sharing iftar meals help break down barriers between different groups in society.

Ramazan is seen as a time for families and communities to come together, enjoy each other’s company, and make happy memories that will last a long time.

I agree with the views of Shahmeer Asif in his article “The blessed iftar experience”. The article showed the true meaning of Ramazan, and especially iftar time, which connects people and society even more strongly. Ramazan teaches us to care for each other and be more spiritual.

The article also talked about the messages shared during iftar meals, showing how they connect families and communities.
