ART LANGAR – REDEFINING FESTIVALS

Standard
ART LANGAR – REDEFINING FESTIVALS

ART LANGAR

Hello!

Sweet and sugary people of the twin cities it is the great time of the year 2017. Well it is on the ending notes of the circle 365 days yet it is an amazing end.

I am not saying it because the days and nights are chilled but because we are about to practically see a new concept of art.

To me art is just not a three alphabets composition but it holds the way of life in it.

“The music we  listen, the  creativity that  comes  out  of  us in any form, even the way you love is a pure  form of art or to  be  exact the writer I am. It is the part of an artistic attribution given to me by the ALLAH Almighty.” – Fatima Hasan Zaidi

So, here on 2nd and 3rd of December 2017, you all are about to witness the great festival ART LANGAR which has been designed by Arieb Azhar. He calls himself a musician for life and not a singer, whereas I agree to it. And if dear readers you do not believe what your eyes just read, please do come join us at the Rock Musicarium near Lake View Park in Islamabad.

After the successful establishment of Music Mela since 2014, Arieb Azhar wanted to establish a more inclusive platform through the ART LANGAR to gather a vibrant community around Art & Music based on the principles of Creativity, Self-Expression, Innovation, Active Participation, Inclusion, Civic Responsibility and Service to Humanity.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS ART LANGAR?

ART LANGAR is a ground breaking initiative that connects the concept of ‘Langar’ (Communal Kitchen; Gift of Food; Ship’s Anchor) with Music and Arts, to demonstrate the practical and humanist worth of Art; as well as to emphasize that Food does not only come in material form, but can also be ‘Food-for-the-Soul’.

ART LANGAR will include three components:

  1. Art Installations
  2. Musical Performances & Collaborations
  3. Langar – the Gift of Food

Art Installations & Manifestations

23031230_366930427062394_8713690823589095698_n

For the first time in Pakistan, Art Installations will be promoted through the platform of an outdoor festival. Professional Artists, as well as Art and Design departments of multiple educational institutions shall engage in creating innovative and interactive works of Art.

Musical Performances & Collaborations

Performances of the best folk, rock and contemporary music from across the country will be held in the amphitheater and grounds, as well as original collaborations. An open drum circle will be organized around a bonfire as well as interactive sessions with music mentors.

Music, here  is  so  much  of  it you  can see  who  is  your  favorite and you want to  listen to.

L

Well, take a little of the  writer’s  advice all of them are  great  musicians. Each has something amazing  to provide to  your ears. So do not skip a beat that can make you  groove.

Langar

The Gift of Food – Contributions will be collected on the first day for a “Langar” or communal kitchen to be established on the second day of the festival. The food will be distributed for Sunday lunch among street children of Mashal Model School, who will be specially brought to the festival. Interactive sessions will be organized with the children in order to provide them a full day of music, art, games, food and fun.

You  will be getting  so  much in  just a little amount so  get  up  buy the passes soon and by  entertaining  yourselves you will  be making  your  contribution for the society  as well. The give and take process of love, wisdom and care is the most peaceful for the soul.

See you  soon and let us all grab a way to redefine ourselves too.

When Love Becomes Needle like

Standard

So, people who  follow my blog must get into a thought  that i posts lame stuff and i  agree i  do because  it may  not  be  lame for me. I  am a person who  write  and  writes on all social  mediums yet i get at a point  when writing is the  only  solution i have may  be to  get  out of  my anxiety zone and i  can not  put  my  thoughts to anyone ears. Yet i want to  departure in peace..

The  feeling of loneliness is  dreadful I have  been  through it once. Yet  to get out  of  loneliness i  can write  only.  When tear  flow out all day long you  keep  on  absorbing  them in so  that  people  around you do  not  know  what  you  are  through. You  call it love. When you start  hating  long winter nights you  call it  love.

When you  are left  lonely yet in love, it is when love becomes needle like. I wonder I have been a strong woman or the almighty can end my beats so I wont have to go through the weak part where i  feel the stuff so  deep yet i  think the  dictionary should  not  had have a  word like love in it. it hurts and it hurts a lot and loneliness hurts more.

 

Equality Is As Blind As Love

Standard

love_is_blind-t2

We all are liars. Generally to make people believe us we use the term that we all are equal. Equal for the man kind or as sent by the God all equal. It  is  just another way of  satisfaction, but  the  reality  is  always different and  believe me.

Life is not a fairly-tale it is  a reality and  reality  is always sad! – Fatima Hasan Zaidi

Finally  surprised I m  at  myself because knowing a lot  of things I always kept  myself in an illusion. well I still do. Just  because all the  times I  do  not  want to face the anxiety  attacks.

So I  prefer  not  to  bother  about  what  is  the  next  outcome  of the stupidity  I  m going to do right  at  any moment. As I  want to fully enjoy  the life I have. Indulging  my self  in illusions keep  me  away  from negative thinking though.

Same  it is  we  often hear that  love is blind. So, is equality but the  only  difference is that, people who  fall in love; fall for each other  despite knowing the specifications about the other. It is something so pure that has no answer to  the  question that

Why did  you  fall in love?

Loving someone does not get you  into  the  details of caste, creed, color, face, height, weight, religion, sect etc. It happens  out  of nowhere. That  is  why, it  is  said that  love  follows  no  religion. Animals we love follows  no religion too. Love is all about selflessness. This is  what  love is to me…

Keep  your eyes  here, soon I shall post  in verses  that  what  is love but love  demands  equality. I know writing  here  I am  not  specific  about the  heading  I  stated above But I write to escape  the anxiety attacks I go through.

 

The EYELINER Story After Graduation

Standard

So, after clearing up 9th semester happily – it is almost a year about this thing.

I learnt so many things after i was no more in NUML.

The most important to me is this one, stated as

Finally I can apply eyeliner on my eyes myself.

Well this is the most creepiest of things to write about at the moment, 5am at night (As yet i m wide awake and have to take good night sleep soon)

But what I do when the cough is not letting me sleep and my brain is wandering around.

So, i was remembering the time I was never able to apply eyeliner to myself. Each time either a cousin, neighbours,

The Eyeliner

classfellow, junior, senior, teachers or even at times any body random in university had to do the honour of applying eyeliner to me.

Where I went through the lovlingly irritating words

  • Yar tumhari ankhy bht choti hy
  • Color hi krna prta hy nzr nhi ata
  • Ankhy na hilao na

As if I did that intentionally :/

Well, I remember while I had an interview travelling through Metro. I asked the lady at metro station who checks you before entrance to apply eyeliner to me..

Well later on even in office I got a friend (water) i call her she used to do that.

But Now finally, I apply the eyeliner on my eyes my self

Yayyyy!

Nothing much it is just an excerpt from my mind at 5am.
