  1. “Traditional yet modern,soft yet strong, is the emerging face of today’s woman, who is opting to live life on her own terms, daring to persue her dreams, indulging, while expressing her individuality.” These are not my words but are the words of a young female DAWN columinst. She has clearly drawn the clear picture of today’s young female faces.
    Love and prayers for all their doings for a better future.


  2. “No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you; we are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live.”
    Mohammad Ali Jinnah,
    Although In recent decades, much progress has been made. On a worldwide level, women’s access to education and proper health care has increased; their participation in the paid labor force has grown; and legislation that promises equal opportunities for women and respect for their human rights has been adopted in many developing countries. The world now has an ever- growing number of women participating in society as policy-makers. But still there are so many countries where women didn’t know about their rights. They are facing discrimination and harassment in all spheres of life. They are victims of violence, with rape and domestic violence listed as significant causes of disability and death among women of reproductive age worldwide.
    The majority of the world’s 1.3 billion absolute poor are women. On average, women receive between 30 and 40 per cent less pay than men earn for the same work and this is observed mostly in developed world.
    Everyone knows that we are celebrating women’s day on 8th of March, in all over the world- but the question arises that why we are celebrating women’s day why not men’s day? It is obvious as human being that women have the same ability and rights as men have- than why there is gender discrimination? I need your opinions in this regard thanks.

    Qalbe mahol me larzan sharare jang he aaj
    hosle waqt ke or zeest ke yak rang he aaj
    Aabginoo me tapan walwalaye sang he aaj
    Husn or ishq ham awaz-o ham aahang he aaj
    Jis me jalta hoon me usi aag me jalna he tujhy
    Uth meri jan mere sath hi chalna he tujhe

    Zindagi jehd me he sabr ke qaboo me nahi
    Nabz hasti ka lahu kampte aansoo me nahi
    Udne khilne me nakhath khame gesoo me nahi
    Janat aik or he jo mard ky pehloon me nahi
    Us ki aazad rawish pe bhi machalna he tujhe
    Uth meri jan mere sath hi chalna he tujhe

    Qadr ab tak teri tarikh ne jani hi nahi
    Tujh me shole bhi he bas ashk fshani hi nahi
    Tu haqiqat bhi he dilchasp kahani hi nahi
    Teri hasti bhi he ik chiz jwani hi nahi
    Apni tarikh ka unwan badalna he tujhe
    Uth meri jan mere sath hi chalna he tujhe

    Tod ke rasm ke but bande qadamat se nikal
    Zofe ishrat se nikal wehme nazakat se nikal
    Nafs ke khanche huwe halqaye azmat se nikal
    Qaid ban jaye muhabat to muhabat se nikal
    Rah ka khar hi kiya gul bhi kuchalna he tujhe
    Uth meri jan mere sath hi chalna he tujhe

    Tod ye azm shikan silsilaye pand bhi tod
    Teri khatir he jo zanjeer wo sogand bhi tod
    Toq ye bhi he zamurud ka gulu band bhi tod
    Tod peymanaye mardan khiradmand bhi tod
    Ban ke tufan chalakna he ubalna he tujhe
    Uth meri jan mere sath hi chalna he tujhe

    Tu Falatoon o Arastu he to zohra, parveen
    Tere qabze me he gadroon teri thokar me zamin
    Han utha jald utha paye muqadar se jabeen
    Me bhi rukne ka nahi waqt bhi rukne ka nahi
    Ladkhdayegi kahan tak ki sanbhalna he tujhe
    Uth meri jan mere sath hi chalna he tujhe
