From Fouzia Sadiq:

Re: Ladies second: are we sexist in writing? (March 16): Very interesting to find out that in English languauge name of the male romantic partner, He/His and MR precedes She/Her and Mrs respectively In Urdu language, folk romantic stories have a different perspective. The names of the stories go like:

Heer and Ranjha
Sohni and Mahiwal
Sussi and Punno
Shirin and Farhad
Laila and Majnu

I must tell you that Heer, Sohni, Sussi, Shirin and Laila are the females.
