A lot of lip-service but nothing on the ground, is the sum total of the desire to bring peace in this potentially most explosive region on mother earth today, allowed to become so by the world conscience failing to force implementation of the Standing UN Resolutions for the last 67 years calling for a plebiscite in Kashmir to decide the fate of the pre-dominantly Muslim state of the subcontinent. This is in stark contrast to the same body acting on US diktats in granting independence to East Timor for the minority Christian community in Indonesia within a matter of days, created by a mass email campaign without anything substantive on the ground, infamously described as an outcome of an 'email crisis.'

My professional pride took a fall recently when I read in a morning newspaper that there were Sikh citizens of Sindh. I was ignorant of this fact. I have travelled all over Sindh, been to remote villages, obscure towns and well known cities except in Nagarparkar. I have never met a Sikh. Now I learn there are 20,000 Sikhs in Sindh.
Scientists on Monday announced "the strongest evidence yet" of liquid water on Mars, raising the distant prospect of microscopic life on the Red Planet. Experts at NASA hailed the findings, made with the US space agency's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and said they were "revolutionising our understanding" of Earth's neighbour.
We have a few women painters in our country as compared to the male artists and often some media are associated with women artists making them practice their art in certain boundaries. They face challenges due to gender biases in the mainstream fine art world till the recent past and some of the women artists broke the boundaries and became known artists in different genre of art.
A trip abroad usually means experiencing new tastes, sounds and architecture. But there are other things to learn when travelling such as local beauty tips. France is famous for its wine so it's no surprise perhaps that some women there treat their skin with a substance called resveratrol which is found in grape vines.
Design students in Estonia have come up with a novel way to help nature lovers enjoy the sights and subtle sounds of their country's vast and cherished forests. The group strategically placed three massive loudspeakers in the heart of a remote woodland in late September to amplify its murmurs, and hikers are both awestruck and inspired.
Keeping calm behind the wheel could get easier thanks to a new car seat that actively monitors a driver's physical and mental status to offer an on the move therapy session. The "Active Wellness" seat is the world's first health-monitoring car seat, according to automotive suppliers Faurecia. It uses a biometric sensing system built into the seat lining that can detect if the driver has a drop in energy levels or is under stress and responds with a specific massage pattern, along with air flow through the seat's ventilation system.
