"You know, Sindhis call us panahagir," my phupi told me. It was sometime in the 1950s. She was married to a doctor who hailed from Mirpur Bathoro, a cultured man with a modern outlook, as all educated Sindhis of that time were. The term panahagir was not used by people like him. My aunt obviously meant it was her villager in-laws who used the term panahagir for Mohajirs. It means refugee but the tone in which it was said clearly expressed prejudice. We didn't mind because it is silly to be insulted by what simple, ignorant folk say.

A top-level sacking, harsh words from the artist's son, delays and a huge budget overrun - Paris's Picasso museum reopens its doors on Saturday amid the fallout from a fraught $71-million renovation. Just over five years after it closed for what was intended to be a two-year refurbishment, the museum - housed in a 17th-century baroque mansion in Paris's historic Marais quarter - has been extensively modernised and is more than twice its previous size.
A previously unseen letter written by Pablo Picasso, complete with sketches, has gone on display in western France. The letter, to his friend the French poet Max Jacob, comes from a private collection and is displayed at the fine arts museum in the western city of Quimper.
Through devotion and determination Rabia Zuberi had achieved both aims of her life - to excel in art and to promote art education, in the form of Karachi School of Arts. The KSA has remarkable contributions in promoting art with a vision to encourage new talent and to expose the art students to the work of senior artists of the country and is still continuing. Here art flourished, producing a galaxy of artists in Pakistan.
The silhouette of a hand on a cave wall in Indonesia is 40,000 years old, showing that Europe was not the birthplace of art as long believed, researchers said. Created by spraying reddish paint around an open hand pressed against rock, the stencil was made about the same time - and possibly before - early humans were leaving artwork on cave walls around Europe that was long thought to be the first in the world.
Hackers are shaking off their reputations as nerdy, loner basement dwellers and rebranding themselves on the world stage as members of Internet age tribes with offbeat codes of conduct and capricious goals. Clans of hackers such as Anonymous, LulzSec and Lizard Squad have caused havoc - and made news - in recent years, but the legacy of the online community stretches back decades.
The lawns of the Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi were jam-packed with exuberant admirers of iconic nonagenarian humour writer Mushtaq Ahmed Yousufi who gave a standing ovation as the ceremony, presided over by poet Zehra Nigah started.
