Banking for Dummies

Dog days and Lord of the Flies syndrome

Bottom line, absolute power corrupts absolutely and for some weird reason, most people in their puny capacity always but always cross the line if they can help it. Anyone who is in any position of power over others likes to exercise his muscles, even when there is no need. I see so many examples – big cars hog the roads…gate keepers try to teach you your place. Front Desk personnel try to block you to give you just three examples. Bully’s bully, its not personal – the powerful prey on the weak. It’s the survival of the fittest. The list goes on and on and on… By Fareeha Qayoom

The Good Fight: Propaganda or just a story?

Year 2013: Fabric Report – Prices Hit the Roof!

Most of these fabric yardages do not endure beyond one summer – they wear out too quickly – they might not even last ten washes. This is why a ready to wear trouser or top or woven button down shirt from an international brand feels like a bargain now. The other day, a senior colleague purchased a very nice embellished woven top from Mango for about PKR 3000 at full price while we were browsing the malls - I told her to go for it as the price seemed reasonable to me. Mango is a high street brand in UK – know what I mean? By Fareeha Qayoom
