Painting: Art, issues and hope, A tribute to Ghanshyam

Saima Salman on Arjumand Hussain: The debate whether art should be meaningful or created to titillate the aesthetic sense alone is as old as the hills. It’s an inconclusive issue (yes, it can be categorised as an issue) because if art doesn’t convey a thought (and all thoughts carry meanings) it fails in its pursuit; and if it doesn’t appeal to your aesthetic sense it can’t be an artistic endeavour (for creating art is essentially an aesthetic exercise).

COMMENT: TV talk shows: good, bad or just inane —Dr Syed Mansoor Hussain

Every so often I decide to watch some of the Pakistani TV talk shows.

For the smoother ones, it is ‘the Gliberati’ and for most of the rest it is ‘the Gibberati’.
