Karachi: Pakistani writers in English are the introductory cards that
writers of older Pakistani languages sent out to the world.
were expressed by noted poetess, political, and social activist Fehmida Riaz.
She was speaking as chief guest at the ceremony to honour the winners of the
Commonwealth Writers' Prize 2010 at the Indus Valley School of Art and
Architecture Thursday evening.
Ms Riaz said that these writers carried a
big responsibility since they had to speak to audiences from the West where
highly critical and analytical thinking was the order of the day. She reminded
them of the difficulty such a role entailed in the present-day world given the
turbulent times we all were living in, what with all the suicide bombings, the
crippling ethnic and sectarian strife, the ever-deepening economic depression,
and all the killings and mayhem.
It was amid this scenario, she said,
that a heavy responsibility devolved on the writers in English to positively
project their culture and their heritage, "A writer in English is such a novelty
to the West", she remarked.
Pakistan, she said, was a late starter in the
field of English writers vis-‡-vis India and the gap had to be filled in, she
said. However, she lauded the achievements of Pakistani writers.
Best First Book Prize (regional) for 2010 was bagged by Danyal Moeenuddin for
his work, "Other Rooms, other wonders". The book is set mostly in southern

Regional Chairperson of the Commonwealth Writers Prize, 2010, Committee, said
that appreciation of different cultures was imperative to international
understanding. She stressed the correlation between literature, art, culture,
and architecture. Freedom of thought and expression, she said, was essential to
nurturing an intellectually flowering society. She said this while announcing
the setting up of the liberal arts department at the school.
head of the nascent liberal arts department, said that liberal arts fostered
creativity, creative thinking, effective communication, strength of character,
and a spirit of enquiry.
Muhammad Hanif, the first-ever Pakistani winner
of the Commonwealth Prize in 2009, for his book, "A Case of Exploding Mangoes",
read portions from his book, including the one recounting the first meeting of
General Ziaul Haq's first cabinet meeting after clamping of martial law in 1977.
The portion was punctuated with highly witty and humorous remarks and
quips and gave a humorous twist to an otherwise somber subject.
television personality, Nimra Bucha, read passages from Danyal Moeenuddin's
book, "Other Rooms, Other Wonders". It was a good presentation with Ms Bucha's
crisp accent, well-modulated voice, and effective cadences.
celebrity, Talat Hussain, read passages from "Solo" by British prize winner,
Rana Dasgupta. Talat's well-modulated voice, conforming to the rules of
theatrics, gave a poignant colour to the passage he read. The programme was
compered by noted TV talk show host, Ayesha (Tammy) Haq.

waste in the area. The committee led to the formation of a small NGO - Society
for Safe and Healthy Environment. The "action committee" filed a petition in
court; and Faisal Siddiqui advocate fought the case pro bono and emerged

to court. The judge asked me what happened to me and I said I was playing
cricket and went to the dump to fetch the ball and got burnt," he
Though the court has ordered that toxic and industrial waste should
only be dumped in filling sites meant for this purpose, unscrupulous
industrialists continue to dump it unabashedly in open plots.
children - Umar, Zulfiqar, Mazhar, Abid Ali and Niaz Mohammad - were burnt in
Mansehra Colony, Landhi, recently where some industrial units had dumped
industrial waste in an open plot despite specific court orders that such
material should be dumped in filling sites only. The Sindh Environmental

practices. The news
