Like any other parent having a young child, my worries are beginning to rise as my son has access to media, music, cartoons, games, entertainment and education that is either in a foreign language or it’s localized in an incorrect way. While it is great to access English, Spanish and French content, there has been a big gap when we talk about Urdu content, especially in interactive education, games, cartoons, stories and edu-tainment apps. No I do not like my son watching Hindi content, that is not Urdu beware. There have been several serious efforts like ToffeeTV to fill the gap but we need to speed up the efforts now.

Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan was born on 25th December 1876. Wish our beloved Quaid lived a few more years. May Allah bless your soul and you attain very high ranks in hereafter.

Sachin Tendulkar from India finally completes his record braking hundredth century in international cricket. No soul has done that before. All I can say is “RESPECT!”.
This 100 centuries set contains 51 test centuries and today’s 49th ODI century that he completes in 188 test and 462 ODI matches. And he’s done that in a tenure of 23 years. I’ve not even watched cricket for that long, and he’s been playing it and he’s always been in top 10 batsmen. What a player he is.
While I keep supporting Pakistan cricket and will continue to do that, all I can have for Sachin is admiration and respect. I don’t think I’ll see such a player again in my life time at least.
