What the heck are they showing on the Television?

kaneez

What kind of tele­vi­sion are we show­ing the masses? Are we rais­ing aware­ness or doing its direct oppo­site – giv­ing men the license to behave like that on national TV? You decide.

I per­son­ally do not sub­scribe to show­ing such graphic scenes (that involve hit­ting women) on national TV even if they are a work of fic­tion. You are just endors­ing bad behav­ior. Please do not tell such sto­ries. Find bet­ter sub­jects where women are respected and empow­ered. Not dimin­ished and sup­pressed. I think the pol­icy mak­ers need to take notice.

Please do raise your voice if you agree with me.

Trend Report: Autumn/Winter 2015 fashion week trends from New York, London, Milan and Paris

fendi-eyeliner

Androg­y­nous style, gen­der blur, uni­sex – in fact, no demar­ca­tion between fem­i­nine and mas­cu­line clothes. “On the street these days, you can’t always tell who’s a guy and who’s a girl,” Ed Burstell, the man­ag­ing direc­tor of Lib­erty of Lon­don was reported as say­ing by New York Times and “Sex­u­al­ity is inside. It’s a pri­vate thing,” as Alessan­dro Michele said for Gucci.

Book Review: “Adapt” by Tim Harford

Adapt - book cover

Bot­tom line, an inter­est­ing take on the sci­ence of suc­cess and a good read. It is short, to the point, and doesn’t labor the point. You can fin­ish it in one sit­ting or over a week­end.

Trend Report – Spring Summer 2015 New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion-weeks

Dolce and Gabbana - SS15 Milan - beauty trends

Clothes are essen­tial, every day and rou­tine, they also serve as tribal mark­ers, as a uni­form belong­ing to a par­tic­u­lar group, cul­ture or sec­tion of soci­ety, to describe a par­tic­u­lar period of his­tory, and as a work of art.

Coke Studio – Season 7 – effortless, professional and slick

coke studio - episode 1

Bot­tom line, Sea­son 7, episode one by Strings is an effort­less, pro­fes­sional pro­duc­tion that is indeed “Sound of the Nation” rein­ter­pret­ing the tra­di­tional musi­cal instru­ments of Sitar, Dho­lak, Flute – bring­ing together sur­prise col­lab­o­ra­tions from guest stars and the house band. I have no faults to find, though, the pre­sen­ta­tion is pretty low-key because it bor­rows from our musi­cal roots and tra­di­tions, there­fore, hardly con­tains any ele­ments of sur­prise– very smooth job indeed.

The Empire Strikes Back

brain

Imran Khan and Qadri are not the answer. They are only human and fal­li­ble and sub­ject to the same human frail­ties as the rest of us includ­ing stu­pid­ity and arro­gance. When the dust set­tles, his­tory will record that they were only rab­ble rousers.

The good, the bad and the ugly — Relationships

intereresting image 3

…There are so many unhappy, neg­a­tive peo­ple around, espe­cially in Pak­istan – our whole cul­ture revolves around crit­i­ciz­ing some­one, com­plain­ing about some­one, gang­ing up and bul­ly­ing some­one, pick­ing on some­one who is dif­fer­ent, bitch­ing, com­plain­ing, moan­ing, groan­ing, whin­ing, carp­ing, we spend all our lives just talk­ing neg­a­tive – in our homes, schools, work­places, tele­vi­sion pro­grams, news­pa­pers…

How­ever in spite of all these frus­tra­tions, I am hooked. Gar­den­ing is a very reward­ing hobby. You can lit­er­ally see the fruits of your labor right in front of your eyes! ;D
