One of the major problems faced by physically injured patients in our country is the lack of latest medical equipment. There isn't even a trace of latest equipment such as active wheelchairs, gel cushions, writing aids, mobility machines and easy living aids. All we have is the common huge wheelchair as if every single patient in Pakistan is suffering from obesity. Besides that, we have the walking frame and old fashioned surgical equipment which people have been using for at least a decade. Medical facilities abroad focus on making a patient independent and bringing him to a normal life while facilities here help to enforce the fact that a patient remains a patient. The authorities concerned should take notice of the plight of physically injured patients and make available for them all proper medical facilities.

Beneficial of Cats

Dear Editor,

Through the courtesy of your highly acclaimed and circulated newspaper I would like to reveal some important facts and figures about cats. I'm sure we can all agree that cats are adorable, sweet little beings with whom we love to snuggle and play. That's all true, thought they're also lazy little buggers who have very little on their daily to-do lists. I feel kind of bad for them. I mean, don't they want more purpose in their lives?

If you work on the computer all day and your wrists sometimes feel sore and unsupported. cat unwittingly prevents you from being stricken with carpal tunnel, resulting in fewer medical bills. Sitting all day sometimes makes your lower back feel sore. You have always wanted one of those cool lumbar support pillows, but let me tell you that cat often hangs out behind your lower back. You can feel the warms radiating from his little body. You will feel supported just think about it and if we see benefits of cat in terms of medical field. Vittecoq and Thomas determined that there is a positive correlation between this parasite and incidence of brain cancer. Cats can host this bug, and there in lies the "felines are bad for you"
Another study from co-author Frederic Thomas cite a National Institutes of Health Study by G.J. Tranah and colleagues. It found dog and cat owners have a reduced risk of non- Hodgkin lymphoma.
So think about it and be a owner of your own cat and be a problem solver.!

Your Sincerely

Respected Sir,

I would like to take essential opportunity by the reader of your daily news paper in order to share my views and feeling about the Homosexuality. Homosexuality has never been a topic to debate in Pakistan, Being open about sexual orientation, such as lesbian, gay, bisexual person is a considered a taboo in many parts of Pakistan .This has been a taboo subject in Pakistan. Although there is no official or unofficial survey about lesbians in Pakistan. Everything about them is based on hearsay. Itís a very sensitive topic but it should be stopped . Even though homosexual acts are considered illegal and religious and cultural attitudes mean that many gay people are afraid to openly acknowledge their sexuality. Pakistani law is a mixture of both Anglo-Saxon colonial law as well as Islamic law, both which proscribe criminal penalties for same-sex sexual acts. Where there will be no public call for tolerance or acceptance of LGBT people, the subject of sexual orientation and gender identity are becoming more openly discussed, especially in light of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Stop homosexuality!!
