Rubina, in her student life, was already keen to express her writing skills and there she always participated with College and University level forums. Her writing passion travelled along with her though, she never got enough liberty to spend her full time on writing.
Her regular writing era started when she had joined a weekly Urdu news paper and started writing weekly column. Rubina first published column was on General Zia-ul-Haq while she compared Zia with Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. She expressed her own views in this attracted readers. In this column she did not insist people to agree with her views but she provided a venue to those who like to think and who may have ability to judge and who may feel the differences by own. This was noted and appreciated by readers.
It seems, this was a turning point in Rubina’s writing career, from that point, she appropriately composed her skills, aligned her Objectives, created her Mission Statement and started sparing time towards her writing projects.
