Year-end issue

The year-end issue of the Young World magazine (December 29, 2012) was terrific. Last year’s important sports and entertainment events were covered thoroughly. I enjoyed reading the issue very much.

The year that was

This is with reference to the article The year that was (December 29, 2012). The writer nicely summarised last year’s important releases from the entertainment industry. The article enlightened me as well as entertained me.

Young World always brings out lovely year-end issues giving thorough coverage to the year’s important events.

Nature’s sweetest treat

Nature’s sweetest treat by Mohammad Niaz (December 22, 2012) was a very informative article and I request you to publish more such useful features. The writer beautifully described the process through which we obtain honey from honeybees.

Honey is indeed nature’s sweetest treat and we must value it. Not only as a food item but honey is also a very useful ingredient of beauty products. It’s used in bath soaps and beauty cream. When it’s applied raw on the face, hands and feet for just 10 to 15 minutes, honey provides our skin with natural glow.

During winter — when skin gets chapped due to dry weather — we should use moisturising lotions, with honey as their main ingredient.

Bates files

This is regarding Bates files by O.A. I’m really impressed with Alfred Bates’ strong observation and analytical skills. We too, should have a habit of observing and analysing people and events — such skills do help us a lot in solving various problems. A person with strong analytical skills is able to make correct decisions and is better at resolving various small and big issues of every day life.

Poet’s corner

My favourite section in the Young World magazine is Poet’s corner as it gives me the opportunity to get to know the young poets in our society. Their work is really praiseworthy. The poems written by young poets aged around six years to 14 years show the hidden talent in our country. It also indicates that not all youngsters remain engrossed in videogames and mobile phones, there are many who love to write and who are extremely creative and want to further polish their writing skills.

I also appreciate Young World’s editorial team for providing children with such a wonderful platform where young poets can showcase their work.

A chocolate world

This is with reference to the story A chocolate world by Ali Hassan Zaidi (YW, December 8, 2012). It was a lovely story which gave me an important lesson of life that every thing has its importance!

Nothing is useless in the world and not everything can satisfy all our needs. Therefore, everything should be used for its true purpose and we must not have extraordinary expectations from anything or any individual.

Cat tales

Cat tales by Fouzia Nasir Ahmed is a lovely column and is a very useful for readers who possess cat as their pet.

I also love to have pets at home and have got a little puppy last month as a birthday present from my mom. I, therefore, request you to publish an article to guide dog owners about taking better care of their faithful friend. I would also like to highlight an important issue here: many people purchase pet animals but not all are very sensitive towards them.

Keeping a pet is not an easy task so please think twice before having a pet. If you can’t take care of it properly, don’t have it. But if you really want to have one, kindly give it the best care it deserves. Because pets, too are living beings like us!

Pakistan versus India

I love cricket and I am a Pakistani. The year 2012 ended on an interesting note with the Pakistan-India cricket series going on in India.

My favorite team is Pakistan, and they are playing two T20 matches and three One-Day internationals and no Test match.

Although I wish the series had been a longer one, it is still nice to see our team play against our arch rivals and do so well. Good luck Pakistan!
