Book Day events at PU,GCU
Lahore: The World Book and Copyright Day was observed across the world on Monday with the objective of promoting reading, publishing and protecting intellectual property through copyright.

The Punjab University and the Government College University celebrated the day by holding an awareness walk and seminar and paying tribute to books and their authors, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and to gain a renewed respect for the extraordinary contributions of those who had furthered the social and cultural progress of humanity.

The day at the Punjab University began with an awareness walk from Department of Library and Information Sciences to Institute of Education and Research and Undergraduate Study Centre. A large number of teachers, librarians and students, holding placards and banners, participated in the walk. A PU spokesman said a record number of 100,616 books were sold at PU's three-day book fair last month.

Speaking at a seminar organised by DLIS, and PU Library and Information Sciences Alumni Association, PU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran said only those nations were powerful and ruled the world that were knowledgeable and loved books.

Columnist Hasan Nisar said books were not all about the words printed on paper but they were from earth to the whole universe. He regretted that knowledge had been divided into religious and non-religious. He said the downfall of Muslims began when they denied the importance of printing press and issued Fatwah against it. "It was one of our great intellectual deceptions that "we" ruled Spain," he said.

He said protection of copy rights was out of question in a society where people were not being provided with their basic rights.

Punjab Education Foundation Chairman Raja Anwar said the culture of tolerance must be promoted in society and book writers must be given liberty to write. He said quality of book was based on quality of reader and only those people loved books who wanted to learn new things.

Later, "Book Lover Award" was distributed among top 10 book users of the Punjab University.

GCU: The GCU Library Society celebrated the day with an aim to promote the habit of book reading.

The celebrations began in the morning from the Vice-Chancellor's Office where students pasted a badge of World Book Day on the shirt of VC Prof Dr Khaleequr Rahman.

The Library Society also pasted badges on the shirts of all faculty members of GCU. A ceremony was held at the GCU Old Library where the Book Anthem was played. Dawn

A brilliant student lost in the plane crash
Rawalpindi: The family of Zaib-un-Nisa, a victim of plane crash, was shocked to see her dead body as she some four days back went to Karachi from Rawalpindi for shopping as her wedding was just around the corner.

Zaib, a resident of House No. 61, Street 1, Shaheed Chowk, KRL, was the student of Fatima Jinnah Women University (FJWU), Rawalpindi. She was a topper throughout. She went to Karachi from Rawalpindi on April 16 through a private airline, but came back through Bhoja Airline that proved her last travel. She also did a beautician's course from England.

Nisar Fatima, Zaib's mother, said that her marriage was fixed on May 5. "I was already in Karachi for some days and called her for shopping there," she said. She said that her another daughter Naureen Fatima died in an accident three years back. "Now I am all alone," she said.

She said that she was also coming through the same flight of Bhoja Air but Zaib did not allow me and said that I should stay in Karachi for some more days.

She demanded of the government to fully investigate the air crash. The news
