Private colleges benefit from delay in CAP announcement
Karachi: Like previous year, first-year students of the city's private colleges would have an edge over their counterparts of public sector colleges and higher secondary schools in terms of number of academic days as the process of admission of fresh matriculates to the government institutions under the centralized admission policy (CAP) could not be initiated till Friday although more than five days have elapsed since the declaration of their results.

Senior professors of some government colleges suspected that the delay in initiating the process of admission to first-year classes in the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools was aimed at favouring the private colleges, where admission process had already begun.

They said that it was surprising to note that the Centralised Admission Committee (CAC), whose task was to accomplish the entire admission process before the commencement of the new academic session for first-year students, had not yet been able to announce the centralised admission policy despite knowing the new academic year was scheduled to begin in the first week

of September while it takes almost one-and-a-half month to complete the admission process.

"Isn't it surprising that more than five days have elapsed since the announcement of the Secondary School Certificate, Part-II (Class X) annual examinations by the Board of Secondary Education Karachi but the CAC has neither announced the admission policy nor provided brochures containing admission forms to banks whereas such an exercise earlier used to be carried out a couple of days prior to announcement of the SSC examinations," remarked an associate professor of Govt D J Science College.

He said that at a time when the process of admission to first-year classes in the city's government colleges was being delayed, a considerable number of fresh science matriculates with good grades would prefer to get admission in private colleges of the metropolis.

A number of senior teachers of government colleges deplored that it was for the last couple of years that the first-year students of the city's government colleges had been having much less academic days as compared to their counterparts in private colleges of the city as well as the students of other cities of Sindh and the rest of the country.They said that the CAC had not yet taken measures to initiate the admission process in the government colleges and higher secondary schools and, as such the possibilities of short academic days for the students of public sector institutions of the city could not be ruled out this year, as well.

They called upon the senior Sindh minister, Pir Mazharul Haq, to direct the CAC members to expedite the process of admission to first-year classes in the city's government colleges and higher secondary schools so that their ensuing academic session could begin on schedule.

Works by NCA principal on display
Karachi: An exhibition of paintings, sculptures and ceramics titled 'Remains of Ruins' by Prof Bashir Ahmad, Principal National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore, opened at the Ahmed Pervez Art Gallery, Arts Council, Karachi, on Sunday.

The event, inaugurated by writer Mushtaq Ahmed Yousufi, was also marked by the launch of a book with the same title by Prof Bashir Ahmad.

Prof Ahmed is known and famous for his miniature work. But it's a soul-stirring experience witnessing his oil-on-board and mixed media exhibits highlighting the debilitating effects of war and violence, and the artist's earnest desire for a lasting peace in the world. Each piece is accompanied by a detailed caption, which in a manner of speaking dilutes the impact of the artist's efforts, but is nonetheless understandable because Prof Ahmad, probably, wanted to propagate the seriousness of the issue in clear terms, shunning artistic suggestiveness.

'I Want Peace' and 'Paucity of Peace' (oil on board) are two pieces that immediately make the viewer comprehend the symbolism in Prof Bashir Ahmad's work. The use of the colour red is reflective. In one of the captions he explains that the ratio of red to white vis--vis the violence that has marred our world is 90 to 10, the former being the repercussions of war and the latter, only 10 per cent, the sign of remaining peace. Mind you, the splash of colour is not done in a frenzied way; it's not even blood red; it's red with multilayered implications, one of which is that the whiteness can gain ground only if we wish to and work towards it.

'Nucleus of Heat', 'Mercy for Peace', 'Flying Humans' and 'Catastrophe' (oil on board) more or less touch on the same theme with subtle variations. However, it's 'Impression on the Ground' where the viewer sees the colour green for the first time, reason being it's a comment on 'oxygen depletion' or the dangers that the ecosystem faces. This series culminates in a brilliant work 'Calamity' topped off by 'Uncouth Eye', an eye which sees nothing but 'murder'.

'Terror of War Frozen in Metal', 'Museum of Remains' and some other assorted exhibits called 'Garden of Penguins' and 'Japanese Gardens' are remarkable works of art, particularly the section in which he laments the destruction caused in World War II in Japan. No different are ceramic creations grieving over the dropping of atom bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Commenting on Prof Bashir Ahmad's endeavours Mushtaq Ahmed Yousufi said his diligence and passion had turned the abstract into the concrete.

Critic Marjorie Husain opined the artist had tried to make us remember what we tended to forget.

Artist Shahid Sajjad also lauded Prof Ahmad's attempts. Prof Bashir Ahmed thanked all of them. The display will last till Aug 9. Dawn
