“Mediocrity is accepted everywhere in Pakistan so why not in Art?” questions Quddus Mirza

I paint life, but basically images and ideas that deal with the political and social scene, making them interesting in a creative but not in any obscure way. No, not like Picasso. It’s not abstract but based on reality, real images, like writing in a way, ordinary symbols that people can understand.” By Fareeha Qayoom

I can get no satisfaction!

At all costs, protect your brain from atrophying or getting stuck in a rut. By the way, boring jobs sap your creativity and mentally fatigue you. You become depressed without knowing it and nothing seems interesting anymore. You stop taking interest in your hobbies, your family and friends or even in normal every day activities…at the end of the day, everything becomes a major effort. When you get home, you just want to flop down somewhere and not move if you can help it. You might also become irritable, pick fights with little or no provocation and usually snap at family and friends and are generally lethargic at weekends. Bottom line, boring job is detrimental to your mental health. Change it as soon as possible. By Fareeha Qayoom
