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

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
