Akin to the Founder of Pakistan, Right Honorable Mohammad Ali Jinnah, my father, the late HAJI BHAI ESMAIL DOSSA had a very close affinity with the Zoroastrian community of Bombay and subsequently, also had many a Parsi friend, like Ardeshir Cowasjee in Karachi. Neighbors of our Bombay building apartment, Moti Mahal, Church Gate, were the Parsi Dr. Jal Daeboo and his beautiful, light skinned daughter Homie. Dr. Daeboo was an X-ray specialist. He certified in the last week of July 1947 that Right Honorable Mohammad Ali Jinnah had terminal tuberculosis.

Badin and Thatta will drown by 2050 and Karachi by 2060 if immediate steps are not taken to check sea intrusion along the coastal area of Sindh. It is our nature to shrug off news of a disaster which will strike decades from now, about 45 years, into the future. We simply do not have the capacity to make such long-term plans. The five-year economic plan was our limit, and even that didn't quite pen out well. We are in the habit of being wise after the event.

I was always surprising while visiting an exhibition at Sanat Gallery, Karachi every time I was impressed by the artworks of the artist displaying his/her works at the gallery. The solo exhibitions as well as residencies at the gallery bring forth the talented creative artists whose artworks proved a delight for art enthusiasts. This time it was Suleman Aqeel Khilji's art pieces that caught attention of the art lovers.

This year, the centrepiece of the mammoth urban engineering project that ensued - the resplendent, five-kilometre (three-mile) "Ringstrasse" boulevard ringing old Vienna - turns 150.
Women who wear glasses are familiar with the problem of putting on facial make-up without being able to see properly. If they want to apply make-up to eyelids and lashes, they have to take their glasses off. That means they often cannot see what they are doing. But now there is a new type of spectacles frame available through opticians that allows you to put on cosmetics and see perfectly at the same time.
"Ada Jafri is the first and only lady Poet who carries in her poetry the eternal colours of Ghalib, Iqbal and Jigar." (Jazib Qureshi). The sad day of the March 12 marked the end of the luminous chapter of Urdu literature. The first lady of the Urdu poetry Ada Jafri left the literary scene on March 12 and has created a vacuum, which cannot be fulfilled easily. Ada Jafri known for her poetry that surrounds with the beauty of emotions, traditional sensuality, and cultural values. She was a prominent figure of contemporary Urdu literature. She had left deep marks in male dominated poetic world.
Every time Paul Moller gets stuck in a traffic jam, his blood boils as he frets at the wasted time. Unlike most motorists resigned to their fate, Moller is doing something about what is an everyday bugbear in the world's increasingly gridlocked cities.
