PNCA Quaid week
Islamabad: The weeklong cultural activities to mark the 133rd birth anniversary of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah concluded here Saturday at Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA).

The events of 'Quaid-e-Azam Week' included the screening of the movie 'Jinnah', a puppet show, and painting and speech competitions.

Students from various educational institutions of the twin cities delivered speeches and created paintings on the life and struggles of Quaid-e-Azam during the freedom movement.

On the topic of `Hum Ne Quaid-e-Azam Ke Pakistan Ko Kia Dia', children expressed their views in a speech competition, in which 17 schools and colleges participated.

While in the painting competition, 80 students painted images of historical and popular buildings and landscapes of Pakistan, and portraits of Quaid-e-Azam.

The painting and speech competitions were followed by the performances of students in tableaus.

The puppet show presented short stories and other items with reference to the struggle of Quaid-e-Azam, and social issues. With the movement of puppets, the show depicted folk tales and skits to provide entertainment and education about social problems including health, education, environment, etc.

Based on the life of Quaid-e-Azam, the movie 'Jinnah' is a historical saga, which features outstanding cast, direction and production. It highlights the various shades of the Quaid's life and thoughts that have remained out of public focus.

According to the organisers of the event, the much debated and publicised film has three goals - to correct history, to present the liberal side of Islam and bring to life a person largely unknown to younger Pakistanis, both at home and abroad.

The lead role of Jinnah has been played by Christopher Lee, while the strength of the film is its dialogues, mostly quotes, that are strategically placed. It also portrays Jinnah's early life as an ambitious lawyer in London. The news

Parveen Shakir remembered
Islamabad: Literary figures across the country eulogised literary services of noted poetess Parveen Shakir on her 15th death anniversary.

Paying rich tribute to her services they said that she was one of those female poets who could be regarded as pioneers in defying tradition by expressing the "female experience" in Urdu poetry.

Renowned literary figure Iftikhar Arif while talking to this agency on Saturday said that Parveen Shakir was the most prominent figure of literary circle who impressed the young lot through her thematic variety and realistic poetry.

Parveen Shakir has skillfully portrayed complexities of life through her profound insight, he added.

Her poetic collection reflects the universal feelings of anger, happiness, pain and love, besides feminine perspective of love and the associated social problems, he said.

Her published collection of works including Khushboo, Sad-barg, Khud Kalami, Inkar, Mah-e-Tamam are considered as the most popular collections in literary history and admired by people, Iftikhar Arif said.

Elaborating, Iftikhar Arif said that her poems reflect a simple yet deep lucidity that is generally associated with folk songs. However, her ghazals represent a combination of classical tradition with modern sensitivity.

Using beautiful stylistic devices like metaphors, simile and personification in musical way, she has introduced a broad concept of romanticism in her poetry, he commented.

Parveen Shakir has added a new dimension to the traditional theme of love by giving expression to her emotions in a simple style and she has used variety of words to convey different thoughts with varying intensities using imaginative insight, Iftikhar Arif said.

He added that she has given the most beautiful female touch to Urdu poetry. Her poetry was a breath of fresh air. She used the first-person feminine pronoun, which is rarely used in Urdu poetry even by female poets.

Parveen Shakir's death was a major loss for the Urdu poets' community and fans. The literary pieces she left would be remembered for a long period of time, he said.

Her first book 'Khushboo' won the Adamjee Award. Later she was awarded the Pride of Performance.

She got masters degrees in English literature and linguistics. She also did Ph.D and masters in Bank Administration. Parveen Shakir died in a car accident in Islamabad. Her death has deprived Urdu literature of an outstanding poet who had yet to reach the peak of her creativity. The nation
