TAC school System –Keep Passing on the lantern!
When, I passed by the TAC school in Johar Town. I was not
only impressed but amazed by the ambiance the manicured lawns, the meticulously
clean classrooms, the discipline in the students, and their involvement in
extracurricular activities. It gave me a feeling of quite a high brand in expensive
league like LGS and Beacohouse brands.
Then I got a chance to meet the soul behind the body,
General (Retired) Maqbool, the founder of the TAC School concept.
The visionary leader is trying to make a difference in his
own special and humble way and not even making a sound out of it. The fee
structure is Rs. 5/- per month. Yes you read it right it is just five rupees
for the whole month.
This is an English medium school with very high standards.
How do they do it? It is of course not less than a magician feat. It seems like
a magician touch.
Story of Anarkali
Is it a Fact or Fiction?
Who was she …
The interesting thing about history is that it can hardly be
hundred percent true. Even if someone has witnessed it with his or her own eyes,
it will just be the interpretation of that individual.
The story of Anarkali exists somewhere between fact &
fiction. This is because of the reason that in Mughul era, there were some many
palace intrigues, complicated
relationships, schemes amongst the large extended families of nobles and ordinary service people. That is
why many secrets were just got buried in the hearts and minds and the final
truth could sometimes never be revealed. It is only an effort of picking up
some disconnected pieces and trying to re-connect the dots to make up a story
from underneath. So take this with an open mind and you may contemplate and
draw your own conclusions if you may wish.
Foundation – Hope is Still Alive!
The famous TCF - ‘The
Citizens Foundation’. If we all could
know how to make dreams a reality, we all can fly to great heights... But the
world is designed differently. It is those very few who with their sheer
commitment, determination and persistence in their efforts and despite all the difficult
challenges in this world, they still keep moving on and show it to the world
the reality of their dream one day.
The inspiring success story of ‘The Citizens Foundation’ is one of
those dreams achieved. And of course, we are proud that Pakistan is not
lacking in such ambitious success stories for the world to know.
The Value of ‘Effective
We all know that the major contributing factor behind peaceful
& healthy relationships rest on the power of ‘effective communication’, whether
these are personal relations, professional interactions or relations between
tribes and nations.
Knowing is one thing and practicing is another… That is the dilemma
of life. Why we don’t practice this…there are many reasons behind it...
In the first place, there are different kinds of
personalities as per the several defined models in psychology. The Right brained
& Left brained’, the ‘Introvert & Extrovert’, and the famous &
widely used the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) 16 personalities types.

Zero Worries With an iPad
When owning a gadget, the first thing that you do is to get to know the item. Familiarization with the gadget is the best thing to do to be able to get the most out of it. This goes with any gadget that you buy, like your latest iPad and iPad charging station. Of course, you paid good money for it so you would want to maximize its use to the best of its capabilities.
Installing and using applications are the basic things that you can do with your tablet PC. However, if this is the only thing that you are using it for, then you are obviously not making the most out of it. This can be considered a waste of your investment. So make sure that you read up on what your gadget can do before purchasing.
