Year in Review: 2016


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.

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


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.

Double Standards


The con­trast between the ordi­nary and spe­cial is blind­ing –only in Pak­istan. Why can’t all our roads be as green and pic­turesque as these two???

Denim: Another Fashion Note from the Trenches


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.

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…

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
