Manual Work In
When on one hand the multi-national companies and other organisations in private sector are making the best use of computer technology, on the other hand, government offices are still carrying out their official work manually. All the record is maintained in large registers and files. It is a common knowledge that it takes more time to work manually whereas the same task can be performed within minutes with the help of a computer. All public sector departments like the Water and Power Development Authority, Pakistan Post, and other government organisations are operating manually. The authorities concerned should see to it that all official work in government organisations must be computerised.
Smoking At Karachi University
I am a student of Karachi University. Recently I have started noticing a vast majority of students smoking inside the premises of the university and the number is growing steadily. Cigarettes of all kinds and brands, from cheapest to expensive are easily available to all students. Moreover, it is not only male students who smoke but the female students have also started smoking inside the premises, though not openly. It is my humble request to the vice chancellor to take strict action against smoking inside the university as it is ruining the future of our generation.
MAG - Simply The Best
I have been a MAG reader for more than a decade now. Over the years my relationship with the magazine has become multifaceted. Like a sincere friend, it offers me advice; like a mother it comforts me when I feel lonely; and like a teacher, it guides me to achieve my goals. Cheers to the magazine I have been reading for the past ten years. Without you MAG, my life would be incomplete. Keep up the good work guys!
Dismal State Of
Through this letter I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned towards the dismal state of our government schools. Pakistan invests only two per cent on education which is why it has a large number of state-owned schools lacking in basic facilities. Most of these government schools lack chairs, desks, proper staffrooms for teachers, and clean drinking water facilities. Some of them are even without electricity and washrooms. Owing to the lack of these basic facilities, children are facing great hardships in attaining education. Thus, both the federal and provincial governments need to put their heads together in addressing the matter on an urgent basis. Development of Pakistan relies only in promoting the educational sector.
Pakistan's Poultry Industry
Poultry sector is an important element of Pakistan's agriculture and economy. It is also the fastest growing industry, considering the increasing demand for poultry products. However, it is facing a lot of problems and challenges nowadays. The factors needed to be pondered for improvement include collaboration between academia and the poultry industry. Moreover, the quality of poultry meat is dependent upon the quality of life of poultry birds therefore we need to provide them with nutrient-rich feed to keep them healthy. Other factors involved in achieving the optimal growth rate at harvest include proper vaccinations, dry clean housing, proper handling of sick birds and ensuring the working condition of ventilation systems. Hence if we follow these simple guidelines then our poultry industry can definitely progress more.
Our media appears to be crumbling with what had happened recently on a private news channel. The episode that comprised the 'hard talk' was infact a farce: a planned and planted programme. One is at a loss to understand why the management of the channel allowed the programme by the two hosts who damaged the reputation of an otherwise prominent channel and also the much-cherished profession of journalism. I believe that a thorough probe should be conducted to ascertain the facts of the matter.
