The Herald Forum Presents a Panel Discussion on Rising Religious Violence

Posted on by manager in Education, Events, Karachi Today | Leave a comment

The highly pressing issues prevalent in Pakistan are far grosser than its political and economic instabilities. Crimes perpetrated in the name of religion reign supreme in a country that is characterized by poor governance and absolute lawlessness. The rising violence and intolerance under the umbrella of religion is now what defines the contemporary Pakistan on the global arena. Why and at what cost these religious war games are active on field and what can be done to combat the problem? Also, is state part of the problem? All of these make up for a heated and highly debatable discussion.

To counteract the situation, The Herald has stepped forward and invited experts of politics, human rights, law, civil society and journalism at Peache Niche, T2F. The panelist include Ali Usman Qasmi, Asad Jamal, Ayesha Khan, Babar Ayaz, and Syed Jaffar Ahmed.

The event will be moderated by Javed Jabbar, noted writer, analyst and media affairs expert, also served as a member of Senate, as well as Federal Information Minister.

Date: Sunday 23rd November, 2014

Time: 6:00 pm

Venue: PeaceNiche, T2F, Karachi

Students at IVSAA Bring Life to a Karachi Street

Posted on by manager in Karachi Today | Leave a comment

What idea would you perceive if you regularly strolled around a random, thoroughly-littered Karachi street and then suddenly one day you see a clean and pristine, and artistically transformed street instead? You nod your head in dismay, figuring out if you just lost your way or that dirt specked street disappeared overnight, right?

Well, it was 7:00 am on a fine morning of 8th November when a group of students from the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture joined hands to take it to a street in Clifton, Block 2 to clean up the mess and paint beautiful graffiti instead.

With oodles of confidence and passion for life, these students began by loading garbage in huge bags in a well-organized manner. In a matter of a couple of hours, the garbage was nowhere to be seen, while students had already started to confer their creative flair onto the walls. They cleared off the wall-chalking into plain white walls and then painted them with the landscape of the city in green. By 2:00 pm, there was creativity oozing out on the street – it had come to life.

Well, this was a terrific idea executed brilliantly – however, the question remains as to what prompted these students to take an initiative so bold. Learning is a 360 degree experience when it comes to giving back, and who could have done it in a better way than those who keep striding on the learning path. On a brighter note, we can rest-assured that the spirit of responsibility still lives on and hope it stays forever.

 

Khoobsurat, brought to you by TUC

TUC brings to you Khoobsurat!
TUC has always maintained its personality as a light hearted snack for untimely hunger pangs and also light hearted humor. So bringing you this movie was a job no one would have done better than them! Fawad Khan has been an ambassador for TUC for four years and been a part of “The Lighter Side of Life”. TUC now chose to bring Khoobsurat to Pakistan and basically spread some love and of course laughter!
The love story of Vikram Rathore with his love interest Dr. Milli Chakravarty is told in Bollywood style but with a big splash from Disney, India. Khoobsurat is directed by Shashanka Ghosh of 2009 comedy Quick Gun Murugun fame and produced by Rhea Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and Siddharth Roy Kapur. The film in its trailer shows bright colors, animated characters and a catchy score by Sunidhi Chauhan!
TUC has made use of all its digital forums to make sure that TUC fans get exclusive movie news, and a little something extra with regards to the movie Khoobsurat. This movie has been waited on for a while because it is starring Pakistan’s heart throb Fawad Khan and India’s Style Icon Sonam Kapoor.
