Year in Review: 2016

hows-your-vision

Decem­ber is the month we take stock and build on the suc­cesses and fail­ures of the past. We also cre­ate new res­o­lu­tions. Well, I don’t have any new res­o­lu­tions. I have only old.

Trend Report: Autumn-Winter 2015

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.

Trend Report – Spring Summer 2015

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.

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 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.

Denim: Another Fashion Note from the Trenches

madonna-dsquared

Cuts are about people’s shapes any­way. ‘One cut fits’ all can never be an endur­ing for­mula. Brands and retail­ers that cater to dif­fer­ent shapes, cuts, washes and max­i­mum range of sizes endure. The rest get left behind.

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.

Thank God for Roads!

my daily commute close up

I must com­mend Mian Shah­baz Sharif for his fore­thought in bring­ing a lit­tle san­ity to the chaos that was our roads before he under­took to cre­ate a lit­tle effi­ciency. Sort­ing out the Kalma Chowk Cross­ing, Fer­ozpur Road, Main Canal Bank Road, Peco Road, Khayban-e-Firdosi, Khayban-e-Jinnah, LDA Avenue Cross­ing, link­ing Rai­wind Road to the main city, con­struct­ing bridges and under­passes and traf­fic lights and re-routing traf­fic to move more quickly has made life easy for com­muters who have to get to point Z from point A. A lot of peo­ple live down there now.

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

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

The Power of Negative Thinking

HBR - images

Focus­ing on the neg­a­tive makes peo­ple for­get all the pos­i­tive things (in life that make it worth liv­ing). Moods are con­ta­gious and spread­ing neg­a­tiv­ity and ingrat­i­tude to your fel­low human beings should not be allowed. Unfor­tu­nately, it’s preva­lent across all walks of life in our soci­ety. We are gen­er­ally ungrate­ful folk.

Baked Alaska – Home– Made Style

baked alaska at copper kettle

You can cre­ate your own ver­sion of baked Alaska at home: it doesn’t cost as much as it would in a restau­rant, though it can be equally deli­cious if not more so and best of all, you can serve as many por­tions as you want.
