Associate Professor Suroosh Irfani said that the exhibition was to reclaim the
dynamic and progressive thoughts found in Pakistani culture. "Dynamic thinkers
and poets like Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi and Iqbal have been appropriated by the
dogma of tradition, and thereby their message has been stripped of it's energy.
The life force present in Iqbal's work has not been channelled. His message is
vibrant with fresh energy, but that aspect has remained untapped."
said that the students had been encouraged to explore a new dimension of
thoughts and imaginations in terms of present challenges. "The essence of
Iqbal's message is that of originality, which can be gained through a constant
struggle. Transformation is the basic principal of life. Nothing is permanent
except change," he said.
NCA Principal Naazish Ataullah said that the
students had interpreted the theme of Iqbal's poetry and portrayed it on the
canvas. She said that students had worked together, and would have learnt
something from each other.
It was told that selected work would be
