Last week, television channels showed pitiful scenes of people evicted from the eight-storey residential complex called Moon Garden, raised illegally on encroached land of Pakistan Railways. Confused, bewildered, angry and resentful men, women and children, most of them have been living in the building since three years, sat down outside the building, hoping for humanitarian redressal of their problem. Of course the builder is the main culprit who sold the apartments with fake documentations, but let us not pretends the apartment owners are innocent victims.

Disdainful and contemptuous disregard for United Nations standing Resolutions for plebiscite in Kashmir, sponsoring terrorism in neighbouring countries, committing repression and human rights crimes including rape, murder, abduction and conversion of minorities, forced labour and human trafficking besides the spree of intolerance, its population equal to that of the United States living without power, its north emitting foul toxins like mercury and arsenic dangerously polluting the environment, and with a satiated desire to subjugate smaller nations; this is India vying for a permanent seat at the UN Security Council.

Misting ocean clouds with saltwater could multiply the water droplets inside, the theory goes, "brightening" clouds to make them reflect more sunlight away from the earth.
On November 23, 2015 it will be 30 years since Zamir Siddiqi Sahib departed from this mortal world. Zamir Ahmad Siddiqi, popularly known as Zamir Siddiqi, was just Zamir bhai for his wide circle of relatives, friends and journalists. He entered journalism in the late 1930s in undivided India, when hardly any Muslim working journalist was seen in the field of English journalism. It would not be wrong to assign to him the honour of being one of the pioneers in English journalism among the Muslims of the sub-continent.
What is 'harsinghar' in Urdu is the 'Coral Jasmine' in English. 'Harsinghar' is a bushy tree adapted to the tropical and subtropical climatic areas of the world.
