(PTV)  Pakistan Television’s Drama serial with a difference. Play is based on a crack squad of 5 commandoes. All actors performed well and had a tremendously relaxed, charming style. Neat outdoor shooting, liberal use of ammunition to convey realism ( rather than the usual smokeless, flashless bangs with unrealistic recoils that we’re used to), all add to the high production values of the play. All characters (more film like than what we are used to in dramas) pack a lot of style and charisma.

Story of Appreciation.

One young academically excellent person went to apply for a managerial position
in a big company.

He passed the first interview; the director did the last interview, made the
last decision.
The director discovered from the CV, that the youth’s academic result is
excellent all the way, from the secondary school until the postgraduate
research, never was a year he did not score.

The director asked, “Did you obtain any scholarship in school?” and the youth
answered “none”.

The director asked, ” Is it your father who paid for your school fees?” the
youth answered, my father passed away when I was one year old, it is my mother
who paid for my school fees.

The director asked, ” Where did your mother work?” the youth answered, my
mother worked as a cloth cleaner. The director requested the youth to show his
hand, the youth showed a pair of hand that were smooth and perfect to the

The director asked, ” Did you ever help your mother wash the clothes before?”
The youth answered, never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more
books, furthermore, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.The director
said, I have a request, when you go back today, go and help to clean your
mother’s hand, and then see me tomorrow morning.

The youth felt that as the chance of landing the job is high, when he went
back, he happily wanted to clean his mother’s hand, his mother felt strange,
happy but mixed with fear, she showed her hands to the kid.

The youth cleaned his mother’s hand slowly, his ***** dropped down as he did
that. It is the first time he found his mother’s hands so wrinkled, and there
are so many bruises in her hand. Some bruises incite pains so strong that
shiver his mother’s body when cleaned with water.

This is the first time the youth realized and experienced that it is this pair
of hand that washed the cloth everyday to earn him the school fees, the bruises
in the mother’s hand is the price that the mother paid for his graduation and
academic excellence and probably his future.

After finishing the cleaning of his mother hand, the youth quietly cleaned all
remaining clothes for his mother. That night, mother and son talked for a very
long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director’s office.
The director noticed the tear in the youth’s eye, asked: “Can you tell what have
you done and learned yesterday in your house?”

The youth answered, ” I cleaned my mother’s hand, and also finished cleaning all
the remaining clothes’

The director asked, “please tell me your feeling.”

The youth said :
Number 1, I knew what is appreciation, without my mother, there would not the
successful me today.

Number 2, I knew how to work together with my mother, then only I can realize
how difficult and tough to get something done.

Number 3, I knew the importance and value of family relationship.

The director said, ” This is what I am asking, I want to recruit a person that
can appreciate the help of other, a person that knew the suffering of others to
get thing done, and a person that would not put money as his only goal in life
to be my manager. You are hired.

White Rose – A Poem By Arfa Karim Randhawa

In the storm
Stands the white rose
tumultuous waves
of destruction abound her

Yet tall is the white rose
strong in the face
Of the sensed doom around her
And she does not bow down
Pure is the white rose
In the compost earth
growing eternal strength
in the nights that so hurt I see not the white rose
She is so far away
But I long to protect her
But only the words can I say So I send her my words
And my poets heart
To help her when
there is hope to see her through Be Strong little flower
Your heart will guide true
And as long as you want
I will always talk to you …

Even after so many years, Shalwar Kameez remains to be the traditional clothing in Pakistani dresses. 

It is true that our clothing has gone through various innovations and Pakistani dresses today are much different from what they used to be, but fashion only adds a little spice here and a little there to give Pakistani dresses a new look every year.

As you move from one province to another, you get to see a new flavour added into the Pakistani dresses. Every province’s traditional clothing has its own beauty and has a novelty into it. Today, when Pakistani dresses have evolved so much, people love to have possession of cultural Pakistani dresses because they have become such a novelty.

Balochis have maintained their traditional clothing till the present day. If you look into history, you will not find a lot of difference in Balochi Pakistani dresses of today and earlier times. Balochi men wear shalwar kameez with long and loose sleeves and loose shalwar which are usually in white colour. Balochi men also tend to wear a turban on their head which is perceived as respectable. This dress code has a special significance for the Balochi people and they find any other dress as in-appropriate.

The Pakistani dresses for Balochi women are truly exquisite. Pakistani dresses for Baluchi women have beautiful needlework done on the front and a large pocket at the front of the dress is also a cultural part of the dress. The needlework is done by the women themselves and the Balochi women are well-known for it.

Pakistani dresses show a new colour as you cross the boundaries of Sindh. Although, the people of Sindh have not preserved their traditional clothing the way Balochi’s have, but you still get to see the traditional “Ajrak and Sindhi Topi” in rural areas of Sindh. Ajrak is a piece of cloth with a unique print on it with specific colors (Brown and maroon mainly) and Sindhi Topi is hat which is a significant part of sindhi Culture. The needle and mirror work done on Sindhi topi is popular all over Pakistan and people of all cultures like to possess it is not a part of National Pakistani dresses.

Punjab has evolved the most in term of Pakistani dresses. The traditional clothing of Punjab used to be Lacha (Lower part of the dress, without any partition for legs), and Paranda (a colourful piece of accessory which women used to weave into their hair). Today, we see these only in some formal demonstration of cultural Pakistani dresses.

Apart from the Balochi dresses, Pakistani dresses have become similar irrespective of geographical location. With an increasing number of designers, we get to see a new fashion in every season and people follow it irrespective of their province. In a way, this elimination of provincial difference is good, but the beauty of Balochi dresses, Sindhi dresses and Punjabi dresses is something which cannot be found anywhere else in the world and should be preserved.

Depression in the elderly is, unfortunately a common occurrence due to loneliness, lack of family support or because of chronic illnesses. Very often depression in the aged is not reported and treated due to the social stigma attached with this condition or due to plain ignorance on part of the family of the elderly person. This not only doesn’t help them, but can worsen their condition and make them susceptible to other ailments…including sometimes suicide. Also, elderly depression can occur due to the death of a spouse…which increases lonliness. Also, side-effects from certain medicines or due to certain long-term illnesses like diabetes and arthritis can have a profound effect on depression. The depression must be treated as soon as possible. Without fast treatment, it can lead to suicidal tendencies on part of the patient or death from premature heart attack, stroke and other serious diseases.

One group known to be at risk from depression in the elderly include widowed women. Others at high risk are those not being able to cope with stress in their lives. Low self-confidence due to diseases like cancer and loss of limb causing disfigurement can easily lead to depression. Many elderly may have a family history of depression and get depressed due to apprehension of dying. Some elderly may have an addiction to alcohol or drugs contributing to their depression.

So, what can be done to help depression in the aged? Counseling and a therapy of antidepressants can help. (note: always see a licensed therapist and physican). The therapist will prescribe antidepressants if they feel they are required. During initial prescriptions of these drugs the patient has to be watched carefully as the side-effects and results of a reaction can be serious. These medicines show their effect over a period of time since they are given in small doses. In fact, it wouldn’t hurt to have a medical alarm for the depressed person just in case they feel the need to contact emergency personnel.

Psychotherapy is very effective in dealing with depression in the elderly as the patient can share their feelings and insecurities with the therapist. This helps them to identify the main problem and initiates a curative process to overcome depression. Of course, a loving family can help tremendously. Depression is a sensitive issue which, can be treated with love and patience along with therapy and medication.



Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The common belief says that you may get a STD, if you indulge in sex. But that is not true. If your partner has an active lesion of syphilis in his/her mouth, you will contact syphilis by a mere kiss. The danger is that the sore may be so insignificant and painless that your partner may also not be aware of that. Learn more about how to protect yourself from Syphilis.

Syphilis- what cause Syphilis?

Syphilis is caused by a bacterium. This bacterium is passed on to partners through open sores. If there is no outward sign, the bacteria may not get passed on. The disease shows itself in phases- primary, secondary and latent. It can kill in the latent stage.

Syphilis- stages of Syphilis

Syphilis develops in three phases/stages. In the first stage a painless sore forms on the genitals or mouth. this gets resolved itself without any treatment in some time. After some days of the first phase, the second phase develops. in this phase red rashes are seen on the palms, feet soles and other body parts . You may also see red patches in mucous membranes. Fever may be present. Sometimes the symptoms are so insignificant that this stage is also ignored. After this the diseases becomes latent and develops after some years.

Syphilis- latent stage of Syphilis

In the latent stage, the bacteria affect most of the body organs and if the disease is severe, it may result in death. The first two stages are most contagious. Please watch for the symptoms before you kiss a new partner.

Throughout the ages, men and women have been fixated on body hair.

So distasteful was the presence of body hair on women in ancient Greece, that Greek artists molded their statues of women without pubic hair.During the height of the Roman Empire, middle and upper-class women engaged in hair removal with regularity, using pumice stones, razors, tweezers, and depilatory creams.In America, the advent of the shorter skirt in the 20th century seems to have generated a renewed focus on woman’s legs–the smoother and shapelier, the better.Today, everybody has their own preference when it comes to their body hair, and a lot of people are going with a less-is-more approach. Little wonder then there are a multitude of hair removal products and systems on the market.Traditionally, hair removal has involved trade-offs. Some approaches, such as waxing and shaving, are inexpensive and can be done at home, but they tend to be painful, harsh on the skin, and have to be repeated frequently, as they aren’t permanent. Other approaches such as laser treatments and electrolysis are expensive and involve time-consuming and uncomfortable visits to aestheticians.If you’re looking for a better way, you’re not alone. So, it’s quite momentous when a new technology emerges and the recent FDA approval of a new hair removal system may signal just such a breakthrough.This new process, which is now available in a product called Finally Free, uses patented radio frequency technology to kill hairs at their roots by sending a cool dry wave through hair and destroying its ability to re-grow. It’s an incredible system that works on both stubborn individual hairs and whole sections of unwanted hair at a time.In clinical tests, this new radio frequency approach was shown to be as effective in permanently removing hair as electrolysis. But, by far, the best news is that the system is designed to be easily used in the privacy and comfort of your home.The Finally Free system allows you to target large patches of hair or individual strands. When you remove hair over a larger area you apply a   patch which sends a radio frequency wave through the hair, killing it at the root, and killing them forever. The patches contain a conductive gel that allows the wave to travel through all of the hairs touching the patch. You don’t pull the hairs out with the patches. You simply treat them and they fall out and don’t grow back.The system also comes with a tweezer-like device which allows you to target individual problematic hairs (again, killing the hair so that it can be gently removed). The Finally Free system works for women and men. It’s effective on legs, chests, underarms, faces, and bikini areas. And, unlike lasers, the technology works safely on all hair colors, skin colors, and hair textures.But, the best thing about it is the price, selling for under $100. That’s an amazing price for the only FDA approved home-use permanent hair removal system.A permanent, painless, easy-to-use hair removal system for under $100–sounds too good to be true. The company, perhaps anticipating some skepticism from consumers, is offering users the ability to try the system for 30 days. If it doesn’t do everything it promises, it can be returned for a complete product refund.
