445 students conferred degrees at IBA convocation
Karachi: A total of 445 students were conferred degrees at the IBA's Convocation held at the institute's main campus at the University of Karachi enclave here on Saturday. Speaker Sindh Assembly Nisar Khuhro was the chief guest at the event.

Welcoming the guests on the occasion, Dr Ishrat Husain, the Dean and Director IBA, declared 2012 as "the year of infrastructural development and international linkages".

He claimed that the 2011/1202 term was the best in his four-and-half years tenure at IBA as it "witnessed the successful culmination of a series of initiatives adopted in 2008 to achieve the ambition of becoming the leading business school in Asia and in the world".

Dr. Ishrat informed that the availability of new capacity of classrooms, labs, seminar rooms, hostel facilities etc. has allowed IBA to expand its annual intake of students to various programs, particularly MBA morning program, which was 63 this year as compared to 25 last Fall.

Out of the total pass-outs, 69 per cent were males and 31 per cent females, who graduated under various Bachelors and Masters' programs including 49 Executive MBA students.

As a parting message to the students, Dr. Hussain said that the institute expects from its students to adhere to the ethical values that IBA attempted to imbibe in them.

"There will be many challenges, many temptations and many urges for short-cuts but I am sure that you will not deviate from the path of integrity, honesty, truthfulness and merit in whatever you do in your life," he said.

This year the first batch of MBA students with two-year post-grad experience has gone into the market.

Renowned Urologist Dr. Adeeb Rizvi, who founded the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT), was conferred with an honorary doctorate in management sciences for his outstanding leadership and philanthropic services.

In his brief speech, Dr. Rizvi cautioned the students to make their own decisions in life and avoid those having "the-ship-is-sinking" approach towards the county.

"You will often come across the people who will say that this country is going down, and there is no hope left," said Dr. Adeeb Rizvi. "Keep yourself away from them. Never pay heed to these prophets of doom.

Cling to the example of your teachers here – make them your role model. They managed to carve out the best business institution in this country, instilling in you –the students – the ability to compete as leaders in any part of the world," he said.

Fifth International Urdu Conference concludes
Karachi: The well-attended four-day fifth international Urdu conference concluded at the Arts Council on Sunday evening.

Speakers and participants heaped plaudits on the organisers, the Arts Council of Pakistan, for having staged such a splendid event.

Lahore-based journalist Masood Asher, congratulating the organisers, said that the commencement of the conference was most timely and said people in places like Lahore had the impression that Karachi was all about targeted killings, robberies, and clashes, that people were confined indoors after dark for fear of being robbed or killed. He said that apart from being a very enriching exercise intellectually, the conference went a long way in erasing the fearsome image of the city that had been projected. He said that it was so reassuring to see that people in Karachi had this thirst for intellectual pursuits and that there was such a lot of literary talent.

Dr Nomanul Haq, of the Lahore University of Management Science (LUMS), lauding the venture said that it was a real source of pride that so many speakers and participants came from all over the country. Urdu, he said, was an international heritage and this conference had done the cause of the language a real service in perpetuating this heritage.

Mehmood Ahmed Khan, Vice-President, Arts Council recounted all the spadework that had gone into planning and holding the conference amid such trying and uncertain civic conditions. "We don't have words to thank all those who helped us make the conference such a success", Khan said.

Noted Urdu scholar from India Dr Shamim Hanafi, was highly impressed with the moot and hoped that travel restrictions between the two countries would be further eased so that people on both sides of the divide could participate in such productive ventures more often.

The first session of the day , titled, "Urdu ka ahd-e-afreen mazah", pertained to humour in Urdu literature. There were readings from the works of Zameer Jaffrey, Ibne Insha, Patras Bokhari, and Dilawar Firagh by Asjad Bokhari, Anjum Rizvi, Nusrat Ali, and Iqbal Lateef.

The third session was titled, "Urdu Adb Aalmi Tanazar Mmein" (Urdu literature in the international context). Aamir Hussain, a UK-based Pakistan author said that very few books of Urdu literature had been translated into English or other global languages. He said that there was need for more books in Urdu to throw light on our literary heritage.

Durmesh Ulger from Turkey, speaking in fluent Urdu but with an accent, said that Urdu teaching in Turkey had started 60 years ago. Presently, he said, the universities of Ankara, Istanbul, and Koniya had very well developed Urdu departments.

Farhat Parveen, a US-based Pakistani, said that Pakistani literature in Urdu was second to none and said that she had seen translations of Allama Iqbal's works in Italy and said that the University of Rochester in New York had perhaps the best translation of Mirza Ghalib's works. At the end of the conference certain resolutions were passed some of which were:

i)Urdu be declared the official language of Pakistan as engendered in the 1973 constitution

ii)Postal rates for the transmission of books and literary material between India and Pakistan be reduced by a substantial margin.

iii)Special efforts be made to acquaint the young generation with the rich, cultural and linguistic heritage and inculcate in them a love for Urdu.

iv) Bodies like the Academy of Letters and the National Book Foundation be declared autonomus organizations.

v)An Indian diplomatic mission be re-established in Karachi to facilitate travel, tourism and literary exchanges between the two countries.

Honorary membership of the Arts Council was conferred on Dr Shamim Hanafi, Naseer Turabi, and Dr. Nomanul Haq. The news

"Evidences suggest that obesity is a major risk factor for many diseases and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality.

Bariatric surgery is currently the only modality that provides a significant, sustained weight loss for the patient who is morbidly obese, with resultant improvement in obesity-related comorbidities. "

They informed that in Pakistan, 22 percent male and 27 percent women were obese, while1.5 billion people were obese worldwide. Obesity causes adverse effects on your health like heart diseases, diabetes mellitus, sleep disturbance and joint pain psychiatric problems."
