ImageMacaroni and cheese in the shape of Darth Vader, Yoda and R2-D2? Check. Action figures? Check. A Jedi robe for your dog? You can have that too. Disney is pulling out all the stops ahead of the hotly-anticipated release of the next film in the blockbuster "Star Wars" series, with a massive merchandising blitz expected to reap billions of dollars.

In Bridge a grand slam is the highest prize one can aspire for. But it is not easy to bid up to a grand unless and until one can perceive that 13 tricks are a near certainty if not 100% certain. Of course, say with a king missing, good declarers never take the risk of losing a small slam at the risk of bidding a grand on a finesse of the missing king.
Daniel Craig makes his fourth appearance as James Bond in "Spectre", which premieres Monday, but his time as 007 may be nearing an end if his recent jaded comments are anything to go by. The 47-year-old British actor has said he would "rather slash my wrists" than play the suave spy again, telling Time Out magazine: "All I want to do is move on."
Polls to the Local Bodies considered to be the benchmark for empowerment of the people at the grass-roots, are being held half-heartedly in the country, courtesy warnings and deadlines variously served upon governments of the day by the judiciary during the last nearly eight years since they have boasted of wresting the reins of power from dictators.
By the very nature of his avocation, a poet is obligated to mirror the prevailing milieu, his people's hopes and fears, their ambitions and aspirations, their travails and dilemmas.

Iqbal was, of course, both a thinker and a poet, but since he chose to convey his thoughts, however profound, through the medium of poetry, he would, in the first place, be considered a poet.

Hasn't anyone in the government, the bureaucracy and especially the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) realised that raising the price of petrol and diesel always, always, always leads to inflation across the board? The labour class will be happy. It always leads to demand for higher wages. The affluent class will grumble. We in the middle-class alone will feel the pinch.
A feeling that something desirable is likely to happen, a wish to get or do something or want something to happen or be true. These all desires, expectations and beliefs are hope. Manisha Gera Baswani tried to capture 'Hope' in her paintings. She created artworks using many different forms, lines and space, which reflected her vision of hope in a solo exhibition titled 'Hope is the thing with feathers' at Sanat Gallery, Karachi.
