It has become the international medium of communication because before World War II, the English People dominated the world and after World War II the Americans, who also speak English, dominate the world. But the importance of English in Pakistan is far greater than in other countries. To speak English is considered by people as something very superior and those who speak English consider themselves to be more cultured. Using English wards in daily Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi and Pakhtoon conversations has become the fashion and all persons using these words foci proud of this. Under these circumstances, when the entire nation has become mental slave of her former masters, the importance of English cannot be ignored.

Under these circumstances we have no option but to learn English and continue to keep English as medium of instruction in our country, those who are learned and considered authorities on their subjects do not bother to write books in Urdu. They feel that they can better express their thoughts in English.

English Essay on "A Journey By Boat"

A journey by boat is very pleasant, of course, as long as the river is not flooded. Two years ago I went with my family to Sukkur. One day we decided to go to Sadhu Bella and to the ruins of Bhakkar. My father hired a boat for the purpose. We all, I, my father, my mother and my younger brother clambered into the boat.
It was a beautiful evening. A gentle breeze, which is unusual in Sukkur, was blowing. We started from the barrage and rowed down the river. Then, I went and sat by the side of the boat man and asked him to let me row. Father did not approve it but I insisted. Seeing me so adamant, the boatman told father that he would help me and no harm would come to me. He, at last, agreed to it.
I took the oars. But they were too heavy for me to row with. So I asked the boat man to give me one oar only and I held it carefully with both hands. He asked to me to keep rhythm with him while rowing. I moved my hands, keeping in sight, the movements of his hand. It was thrilling for me to row and I looked with proud eyes at my younger brother.
We reached Sadhu Bella soon. We got down the boat and saw the temple. Sadhu Bella is a very old temple built in the river just in front of the Railway bridge. There were some idols. Then we rowed up to the ruins of Bhakkar. The ruins looked desolated and dreary in the darkness of the evening and the shading trees. Every where, there were bushes or trees. We saw the ruins of the Jamia Masjid, the palace and the houses. As darkness was overtaking us, we decided to return.
