    واہ کیا یاد دلایا آپ نے.
    تعلیم و تربیت کا ہر شمارہ کئی سال تک ہمارے گھر آتا رہا.
    اس کے علاوہ ہمارے گھر کے بڑے, پاکیزہ اور اردو ڈائجسٹ نامی ماہوار رسالے پڑھتے.
    شاید آپ کو وہ بھی یاد ہوں.

    Bam! - That brought back memories. ToT was my absolute favorite back in the day, second by a large margin was "Nonehal". Could not have summarized it better myself. The cricket tips. My favorite writer was Saleem Khan Gimmi with his hunting stories. He has passed away now, Inna lillah e wa inna alaihe rajiun. His grandson is my junior at work.
    My elder bro got to read it first, when he was done, I always finished it one sitting.
    Its a damn shame I also did not keep a single copy. Would have served as a great reminder of "jab ham jawan thay". The biggest fallacy of life is as a kid one wants to grow up, and once grown up, one regrets every bit of it.....

    Hello,

    Good post. Something I can relate to. The 'Ghaybee-insaan' issue is of my time, as I recall purchasing/collecting it.
    At our village storage, we also have issues dating back to the 60's and 70's. My aunt(father's sister) who is age 75+ was educated through these(a rare feat in those days for women) and when we would buy the 1980s/90s issues, she would reminisce fondly and tell us stories.

    Keep up the good work.

    Wow, looking at today's Pakistani TV(or rather being having to listen when my sisters watch in the next room at high volume), I never imagined Urdu lit could have science fiction or really any genre except drama, romance and incredibly stupid comedy(eg. Bulbulay). I only used to read Young World back in the 90s.

    I came to know about TOT through my brothers I guess I still have that 1992 July one , I started reading it in late 90's when I was in grade 3 I guess , I used to read the old ones which my brother bought in past , I started with the drawings cause I used to love the drawings in it at the 2nd or last page I guess , my brother had 1-2 drawings published to in it , any way stories were full of patriotism war propoganda which is needed at that time cause of tense relations as alwaysx .
    i remember chacha bulakar as well , TOT helped in many ways it indeed improved my urdu which is still weak by the way any way , it made me eat butter I used to eat jam only , but saw a cartoon in it which had some guy spreading butter on toasts and serving .
    It helped my brother a lot as he was avid reader he use to read TOT , inspector jamshid novels any many thing which made him into sci gen fan thus watching sci if movies with him made me sci if fan as well
    though I never bought a copy of it , my brother did , I'm happy that TOT is still published and every child Shuld read it . It opened my imaginations specially the diagrams and pictures .

    I do agree that the current generation does not value what it is like to have independence . And wow those games you played sounds so awesome ! Really gave me goose bumps and touched my heaert mate ! I would admit it damn straight that I am jealous that you had the opportunity to experience all those . Unfortunately for the current generation ,we are born too late . Our parents urge us to stay indoors which makes sense due to many circumstances .

    When I left back in 2006 in Sept. I remember how awesome the 14th August was . Every year my elder brother used to buy alot of Jhandiyan and we would decorate our car with it and everyone who rode in the car with us felt so patriotic . When I came here in this July and saw how there was negligible spirit of 14th august 8 years later,I was really depressed .

    And yes I admit the spirit of patriotism is gone . I guess this is because the people think there is nothing to celebrate about which is not true . Everyday when I go to school in Qingqi,I praise these qingqi people. They are earning the legal way . They could go ahead and become beggers but no they sort out and did this . And the way they decorate the Qingqi it really touches my heart . I mean I love how people can insert our culture to almost everything . Globalisation is something alot of countries are scared of but it's happy to see that our country is not that effected by it

    wow this sounds all so nostalgic ! :') Shows that our country really has talent . I never had a chance to read Eng Lit however I once did read these funny stories in an urdu novel . I don't really remember the name,it was something like Qasim aur .... And yea the drawings on the covers are quite brilliant on those ToT magazines .

    Great blog @Ottoman

    otto what a post
    This is nostalgic turned to level 11.

    I remember Naunehaal, ToT, Imran series, Kamran Series, Young world magazine, phool, Archie comics and other various other super hero comics so vividly . I remember growing up with cousins who were all older than me, getting the copy early and me waiting for them to finish, or sneaking the copy before them and lieing about not seeing them being delivered ...
    Ah what amazing times....Also I remember going to book stalls near nipa and saddar for novels and books..yes I was a book worm...
    and getting in fights with our local newspaper stand, when he didn't deliver it on the day it was supposed to be out

    I never read a lot of these. I simply went for the jokes and the investigation thing. My Urdu has always sucked. My older brother, on the other hand (again, Faisal as you might know), was a die-hard reader and his Urdu vocabulary was and is still amazing. We still have a large collection of every issue from I think 199 to 2009, I suppose? Not sure, but we have a lot.

    Their drawings always rocked.
