It was just the second day of an interesting exhibition of prehistoric pottery from Balochistan at the National Museum of Pakistan, Karachi. Nobody came, barring four or five visitors, including myself. If the same exhibition is held in Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, German, (one of the organisers of the exhibition), crowds of people would be milling around the display cabinets. The world is fascinated by Pakistan's ancient past, but we Pakistanis want to forget such things as Mohenjo Daro, Kot Diji, Harappa, Mehrgarh, Nal, Amri exist.

I have always pondered with admiration that anonymous individual who coined this famous adage. He knew what takes a life time experience for an ordinary man to discover. Let me elaborate. All women must marry but no man should. Marriage by no stretch of imagination is an equalizer between two roaring individuals. Infact it is a mere legalised surrender of the man to the wife. No wonder, that Samuel Butler, in retrospect voiced an inner feeling to say, in matrimony to hesitate is sometimes to be saved.' But man was born impatient!
It is no split-second decision. In fact, countries are at such odds over whether to do away with the "leap second" - an extra second periodically added to compensate for irregularities in the earth's rotation around the sun - that they have put off deciding the matter until 2023, the United Nations announced Thursday. Country representatives gathered for a conference in Geneva hosted by the UN's International Telecommunication Union (ITU) have been haggling over the issue since the beginning of the month without reaching agreement.
Quddus Mirza took a new look at art in his recent solo exhibition at Canvas Gallery, Karachi. The artworks may seem illogical, perverted, distorted, hallucinatory and absurd but the paintings have been designed in such a way so that ignorant people can visualise the truth in these illusive works.
Winter season brings with it many noticeable changes to all types of skin. The low humidity, dry atmosphere and harsh wind of winter can suck away skin moisture. Low moisture level leaves your skin dry, flaky, dull and itchy. Changing your skincare routine with the season can keep winter from drying your skin.
On the front line of climate change in the Canadian Arctic, scientists hunt for clues to a potentially catastrophic global warming trend: melting permafrost. On the rolling landscape of shrubs and moss around Hudson Bay, they probe the once impenetrable ground now thawing in places due to global warming. Teams are measuring the soil's carbon content, temperature, pace of melt and the resulting release of once-trapped greenhouse gases.
A healthy food for one person may lead another to gain weight, according to a study that suggests a one-size-fits-all approach to dieting is fundamentally wrong. For instance, one woman in the study repeatedly experienced a spike in blood sugar after eating tomatoes, which would generally be considered a low-fat, nutritious food.
