Another week, more changes. I hope the readers are enjoying our new "Backpack". Taskin's back this week with some more witty words of wisdom, and he is joined by our in-house historian Durdana Ghias, who'll be introducing us to a famous face from the past. There are a lot more new things to come, so you'll have to keep reading the RS to keep track of all the changes.
The biggest thing that's happening at the RS is the fiction contest. Send us an original short story not more than 800 words. Does the word limit sound too tight? Well, that's the challenge. If your work is authentic, and we like it, you could be our next Rising Star. The best entry will be published in the RS, and the author stands a chance to work for us over the summer. Now isn't that an unbeatable offer?
Just send your entries along with your name and contact number to email@example.com. Or you could just mail me.
Well, this week is special because on June 20, we celebrate Father's Day. With that in mind, I'll leave you with a poem this anonymous person sent us:
My dear father
