Combining fantasy and reality the three artists - Imrana Tanveer, Saba Khan and Wardah Shabbir present their personal narratives about life at Chawkandi Art Gallery, Karachi in a group exhibition titled "Waxing Lyrical". I found the shades of different feelings in the paintings at the show. Some have soothing and calming rays of hope which touches the mind and soul while other portrays tense and bad experiences that clinches to the memories.

Night workers who have trouble sleeping after their shifts should under no circumstances rely on sleeping pills, a German psychologist warns, pointing to the danger of becoming psychologically dependent on the little chemical helpers. A relaxing routine can be a healthy alternative.
Making customers cry may not be most shopkeeper's goal, but at Sydney's 101-year-old Doll Hospital workers take tears as a sign of a job well done. In an age of mass-produced plastic dolls, few doll hospitals around the world have survived, the owners said.
A seminar on Paris that Amherst College Professor Ronald Rosbottom gave a decade ago piqued the US academic's curiosity about the Occupation, the four years when German troops held the French capital during World War Two. Rosbottom began sifting through archives, pouring over memoirs and conducting interviews to uncover "how a familiar and beloved city became, even temporarily, threatening and uncanny."
As long as there have been computer games, there have been dreams of ways to immerse people completely into digital worlds. So far, it's just been a dream.

The world celebrated the International Humanitarian Day on August 19. The purpose of the day was to pay tribute to those charitable aid workers who serve the humanity regardless of race, colour, creed, and religious differences. They help millions of people, even in adverse situation and circumstances. Each year on this day the world pay a tribute to aid workers world-wide, a commemoration to those who have lost their lives and a celebration of the spirit of humanitarian work around the world.
For those who believe in the yeti, the news can only be described as, well, abominable. Science has cast its methodical eye on samples of hair reputed to have been left by the Himalayan snowman of legend... and determined they came from a bear or a goat. Similarly crushing disappointment lies in wait for those who believe in Big Foot, the yeti's North American counterpart; in the almasty, the elusive man of the Central Asian wastes; and in the orang pendek, a bipedal hominid reputed to roam the mountainous forests of Sumatra.
