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

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.

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).

The Good Fight: Propaganda or just a story?

The good wife

The aver­age Amer­i­can (includ­ing the blog­ger who wrote the above review!) prob­a­bly doesn’t even know that Waziris­tan is actu­ally located in Pak­istan and Pak­istan is not at war (offi­cially or oth­er­wise) with USA or Afghanistan!

Television: Hooray for commercials!

Television screen

Some com­mer­cials are bet­ter than pro­grams – for exam­ple, Ufone ads. Some make you laugh like Shahid Afridi’s ad for Head and Shoul­ders sham­poo – “mera mind may bahut kuch…except dan­druff ki par­shani kay” (Trans­la­tion : I have lots on my mind except wor­ry­ing about dan­druff)– some leave you mys­ti­fied – like Super bis­cuits ad.

My Top 5 favorite videos on the net right now

Map of Pakistan

Clin­ton again reit­er­ated that Bin Laden is hid­ing in Pak­istan dur­ing her two day recent trip to Pak­istan, even though Prime Min­is­ter Gilani was quick to refute this publicly…The west­ern media has also joined the pro­pa­ganda band­wagon and keeps such ideas alive, check out the video pro­duced by Adam E Ellick of New York Times, “Tun­ing out the Tal­ibans”

Coke Studio – season 3 Unleashed

Coke Studio

The show stop­per was not Abida Parveen sur­pris­ingly even if she’s a vet­eran and has a huge fan fol­low­ing among the young and old. For some rea­son, I didn’t like her song selec­tion. It was Arif Lohar and Mee­sha Shafi’s Alif Allah Cham­bay di booti num­ber while the runner’s up was def­i­nitely Zeb and Haniya’s Bibi Sanam Janem

Ahmed Ali Butt, not your typical actor

“Any­body can be on Tele­vi­sion. Peo­ple who last are true to their art. I have no hang ups work­ing with new peo­ple, the more you work, the more you learn. As long as the direc­tor knows what he wants from his actors, things work out. There is con­flict some­times if the direc­tor doesn’t know what he is doing. How­ever, I am a flex­i­ble per­son and I have learnt to deal with con­flict – rule num­ber one — leave your ego at the door” says Butt
