GOOD GOVERNANCE

What can be the worst example of our ill fate that attitudes of western heads of state give the glimpses of Khulfa-e-Rashdeen’s rule while the rulers of the third world countries remind us Pharaohs. Mr. Joe Biden, the former vice President of a superpower like United States had to sell his house to bear the expenditures of the medical treatment of his son. Justin Trudeau, the current prime minister of ...


World Gets Trumped

President seems appears to be convinced that Asian economies had always taken advantage of the United States, becoming rich at its expense

President Trump seems to be making good on his promises by taking initial steps, through executive orders, to build a wall across Mexico, banning the Muslims from entering the United States (initially for seven Muslim countries) and renegotiating ...

Away we Fly

Inspired by the pigeons indigenous to Lahore's streets and buildings, the work in question creates a very soothing picture. The flurry of activity, as the birds descend to eat, drink and make merry in the streets, is captured in grey tones off-set by an abundance of ochre and mustard.

YOUTH AS A FORCE FOR CHANGE

‘Youth' is best understood as a period of transition from the dependence of childhood to adulthood's independence. That's why, as a category, youth is more fluid than other fixed age-groups. Yet, age is the easiest way to define this group, particularly in relation to education and employment, because 'youth' is often referred to a person between the ages of leaving compulsory education, and finding the...

VLAD THE IMPALER (1431-1476) THE REAL DRACULA

Facts remain facts unchanging, unyielding before any attempt to distort them despite the fact any such attempt is made by an ordinary folk or Hollywood filmmaker like Michael De Luca who produced horror movie "Dracula untold" in 2014 in which the central character is "Vlad the impaler" portrayed as a hero who, at first, for the safety of his son, refuses to obey the orders of Turk Sultan Mehmed-II.
