2014, Event, Pakistan

Youth Arts & Literary Exhibition, Khi.

5YALE, the Youth Arts & Literary Exhibition, was held in Karachi yesterday on 13th April 2014, with its superb vision of fostering creativity and ingenuity, and its mission of promoting the Pakistani culture. The event focused on many artistic and creative fields like conceptual photography, painting, poetry, and theater performances. Debates on piracy and plagiarism, literature, and meetings with writers and “Typewriter” kept the audience engaged and awed through 11am to 8pm.

Many artists had their works displayed at the YALE Arts Gallery, and several photographs based on “Mar gaya Insaan (Man has died)” and “Jagenge Zaroor (We will rise)” were showcased in the exhibit hall. Pain, miseries, struggle, and sacrifice were portrayed powerfully through paint strokes and camera films on YALE’s canvas.

Other things like “The Unseen Pakistan” and “Glimpses of Lollywood” showed to the public what potential this land has got, what it has become, and what is still left.

Even with all that chaos and miseries, Pakistan is a homeland to people who are destined not to give up. These people with their outstanding visions choose to bring back the glory this land deserves. This is what YALE meant to me.

Farewell 2011: Happy 2012!!!!!

Greetings!

2011 was a beautiful year for me. Never had I been so related to something like a ‘year’ or a ‘month’ as I feel now. I experienced love, hatred, tears, cheer, fights, fame, gain, loss , lessons, hopes, and unforgettable moments!! I discovered myself. (atleast I tried to) and deaths. And I discovered a number of great blogs!!!!

2011 was a great blogging year for me! I got a total of 26 followers, among which 25 are from this year only..!
I pay them huge thanks and I hereby tell them how fond I am of their blogs too;)
