I enjoy reading poetry and that’s why I never forget to buy Us magazine every Friday. The poets’ corner has really helped me developed my own voice. I was afraid to experiment with my writing style and would always write in a typical way. Looking for rhyming words was a challenge, but after reading poems by Pakistani youth, I could see that that’s no longer a rule. They can be as creative as they want.
Grow green breathe clean by DUHS
According to Assistant Professor Biochemistry, Dow International Medical College (DUHS), Dr. Mehnaz Nuruddin Gitay, planting trees has fortunately become a national agenda with growing awareness among the patriotic people of Pakistan. Plants play a vital role in controlling climate and can impact global warming by absorbing Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere which is a significant greenhouse gas. With plantation happening all around Pakistan, the idea of planting trees at the sea side is extremely important for environmental betterment.
In this regard, DUHS is initiating a community drive to plant trees and bring about a reforestation change. The name of the Drive is ‘Grow Green Breathe Clean’. Volunteers of DUHS will be planting at Manora naval base on the 28th of April 2019. “It will be hard work and exercise so get prepared with water and some energy supplies in your kit to keep you energized and hydrated, independently of the whole unit,” advises Dr Mehnaz to the volunteers.
She said that trees at the sea side serve as a wind shield against the strong winds of the sea. Plantation here serves as habitat for sea fauna and flora. It serves as a barrier against storms and floods. It draws minerals towards land making the land more fertile. More oxygen is generated to help life in and around the sea. Above all, it does not demand a lot of care and attention from us.
The need for plantation and growing green is a global requirement today. Not only to give generations ahead a stable, green world for survival, but to have a pleasant today, it is our duty to take care of the needs of mother earth.
Narrated by Abu Huraira (R.A)
Allah’s Apostle (S.A.W) said, “During your sleep, Satan knots three knots at the back of the head of each of you, and he breathes the following words at each knot, ‘The night is, long, so keep on sleeping,’ If that person wakes up and celebrates the praises of Allah, then one knot is undone, and when he performs ablution the second knot is undone, and when he prays, all the knots are undone, and he gets up in the morning lively and gay, otherwise he gets up dull and gloomy.”
