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.

Do the right thing do the right thing
do it all the time do it all the time
make your­self right, never mind them
don’t you know you’re not the only one suf­fer­ing

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 Tomorrow People – the ‘Us and Them’ Syndrome

the tomorrow people

Big­otry exists.

It’s a fact. There’s no get­ting away from it. We dis­crim­i­nate, we judge, we eval­u­ate, daily on the basis of ‘like’ and ‘dis­like’ which is quite a sub­jec­tive qual­ity if you think about it – we might not even notice we are doing it. It’s human nature.

Coke Studio: Season 6 —  Same Old, Same Old, Blah, Blah…

coke studio 2

Not that I want to rain on his parade but I think Coke Stu­dio needs fresh new blood.

Its same old, same old; it started with the sin­gle “Jogi” and it went down­hill fast from there

Things have Changed

know what's hot

Peo­ple are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

Playing Ostrich

on-the-cliff

In my dream I was drown­ing my sor­rows
But my sor­rows, they learned to swim
Sur­round­ing me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
Waves of regret and waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You…you said you’d wait
’til the end of the world

Procrastination and Writer’s block – My Typical Day

flat screen tv

I am suf­fer­ing from over work. Yes, I think it’s a dis­ease too. You develop a tun­nel vision. You become com­pul­sive and obses­sive (about your cur­rent obses­sion). Which I am any­way – com­pul­sively obsessive…when you add work to the mix, it becomes some­thing totally beyond nor­mal. All work and no play makes you a dull Jill (or Jack what­ever your par­tic­u­lar case).

Doom and Gloom Galore

Cit­i­zens should be allowed to let off steam in peace­ful healthy ways. There is a lot of hid­den anger that comes out when peo­ple are protest­ing on the roads, on tele­vi­sion and in the news, but espe­cially when they are protest­ing against power out­ages.

Coke Studio – Season 5 Kicks off May 13th with a bang!

atif aslam

Coke Stu­dio has finally arrived as a team (Orches­tra). Tech­ni­cally it was a great episode – no jar­ring notes at all in the music col­lab­o­ra­tions — the house band, the backup vocal­ists and of course, Rohail Hayat all pro­vided great musi­cal sup­port and back up to the vocal­ists – it’s now up to them (vocal­ists) to shine and come up with great new mate­r­ial.

Carl Orff — Carmina Burana — O fortuna played by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (with lyrics)

Fate, in health and in virtue, is against me dri­ven on and weighted down, always enslaved.
So at this hour with­out delay pluck the vibrat­ing string; since Fate strikes down the strong man,
every­one weep with me!
