On September 1, Sindh Madresstul Islam (SMI) celebrated its 129th Foundation Day. Situated in the commercial heart of Karachi, it began as a school in 1885, became a college in 1943 and was elevated to university, in 2012.

While going through Inaam Zafar's painting at Sanat Initiative Gallery, Karachi I feel a different style of handling paintings. More you go away from a painting more its details are revealed on you. Seemingly blur figures when viewing his painting closely appears clearer when you view it from some distance and much more clear when you see it from far.

The skin of the lip is slightly elevated from the rest of the face.
For British author Mark Lewisohn, telling the story of the world's greatest rock band the way it deserves to be told will take time - a quarter-century, to be exact. The noted Beatles scholar, 56, fell in love with the Fab Four as a child, and published his first Beatles-related reference work in 1986. His latest book, "Tune In," was published late last year.
"Wizard of Oz" heroine Dorothy only had to click her ruby red slippers together and they would spirit her home to Kansas. Now, an Indian high-tech start-up is promising to do the same in real life with a new, GPS-enabled smart sports shoe that vibrates to give the wearer directions.
