More Monday Blues and Torrential Rains!

Why can’t they save the rain water? Conservation is the new buzz word all over the world! Does that take a lot of investment? Funnily enough, we know Pakistan comes under the Monsoon belt. Somebody should be working on this but we seem to be never prepared… By Fareeha Qayoom

Everything happens on TV – life in the fast lane

The whole of Pakistan or at least the more vocals ones (talking heads on cable TV, internet and print media) has dismissed the assassination of Governor Salman Taseer as a case of ‘a lack of religious tolerance for their fellow man by one of Pakistanis’, in this case, a symbol of an ‘English Medium, educated, rich, modern, liberal, progressive, not to mention one of the top ‘political and business elite,’ and a self-confessed ‘proud’ Muslim who reportedly carried the verses of the Quran around his neck on a chain by an ‘Urdu Medium, extremist, narrow-minded, brain-washed’ so-called ‘fanatic fundamentalist’ relatively ‘young’ slightly better trained and paid ‘security guard’ a member of elite force who cold-blooded bided his time to kill his targeted victim in a quiet moment long after the event which apparently triggered and provoked his so called ‘crime of passion’ By Fareeha Qayoom
