PU girls artwork showcase
Lahore: The Alhamra Art Gallery was host to the work of 19 female artists from the Punjab University College of Art and Design on Friday. 'Incognito unwrap yourself', as the display was dubbed, showcased the final theses of MA final-year students.

Exploring various social, cultural and even psychological themes, the artists had depicted their interpretation of subjects and emotions such as 'Sufferings', 'Black Magic', 'Present and Future of Pakistan' and 'Sufism' among others. Students' research and ideas shone through in the work, which were set apart by the variety of technique on display. Although subjects overlapped and were neither novel nor unique, most subjects were easy to relate to. From escapism to innocence, spirituality to childhood, class divisions in society and prostitution, the thesis display was a melting pot of ideas and emotions and everyday situations.

PU Vice Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran, who inaugurated exhibit, said the university's Art and Design department had been neglected and many batches had graduated without receiving any encouragement for their work. The VC said all art societies, cultural complexes and art councils had developed under liberal democratic governments, such as that of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

College of Art and Design Principal Rahat Masood reflected on how security concerns had reduced the scope of art and culture in our society and students' talent was a proof that they were sensitive, creative and responsive. "Students through different exercises are exposed to diverse ideas and concepts because many students find it hard to escape the close-mindedness inculcated in them by a conservative society," she said.

Kahkashan Javed, Head of Painting department, praised the students' efforts and said the students had worked hard to make their portfolios a success. "We promised them if their thesis paintings were impressive, we would hold an exhibition. I am glad they have proven themselves," she said smiling.

LUMS students set new standards in emergency response
Lahore: Giving a new dimension to the ongoing struggle to cope with terrorism, student volunteers from the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) have been trained in rescuing people and giving them emergency medical relief in the hour of crisis.

The first batch of rescuers developed by an educational institution on a voluntarily basis comprises of 12 students, including 4 women. They have not only passed their professional training, given to the recruits of rescue 1122, but are all set to launch a small-scale rescue response team for the university campus as well as for the surrounding areas.

The LUMS management has set up a hotline on their PABX system, so people can call these volunteers in case of an emergency. These volunteers have already demonstrated their skills in different sports events on campus, mock drills as well as a professional competition of rescuers organised recently by the Rescue 1122.

The university management has also developed an Emergency Management Services (EMS) club inside the campus to spread awareness about the importance of emergency relief training. This would not only help the volunteers rescue students inside the campus but also give them an opportunity to serve humanity if a natural calamity like the 2005 earthquake hits the country.

The administration of LUMS has fully supported its students in this regard and has assigned them an office on campus to perform their services.The 12-member rescue team is well equipped, and can treat everything from treating minor injuries or medical problems to providing life-saving care to patients. They are also trained to properly assist those with critical injuries and transport them to hospitals in an ambulance if needed.

LUMS EMS Head, Babar Asad Khan said that 12 BS Honours students including eight boys and four girls got the emergency rescue training at Rescue 1122 training centres and they are trained to deal with emergencies like bomb blasts, earthquakes, fire incidents etc. He said they have expanded their network by setting up a volunteers club on campus, and already more than a hundred students have joined this club.

EMS Advisor Zubair Anees said that he and his colleagues have learnt how to provide a wide spectrum of emergency care, including oxygen therapy, bleeding control, automated defibrillation, and assistance with basic medications. One of the rescuers Rania Nasir said that she realised that women could also play a pivotal role in rescue missions, so she came forward as a volunteer.

"I knew right from the beginning that it would not be easy for me to complete this training, but I decided it was worth doing for the sake of humanity, that is why I joined the first ever batch of professional rescuers," she said, urging other universities to do the same.

LUMS Vice Chancellor Dr Ahmad Jaan Durrani said that these students were trained to cope with any emergency situation. Daily times

BISE employees strike continue
Lahore: The Employees Welfare Association of the Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISE), Lahore, continued its pen-down strike on third consecutive day on Friday, protesting against the non-issuance of grants to the boards by the government.

The Lahore board employees, like the employees of seven other BISEs, are on strike on the call of the Employees Federation of Educational Boards Punjab (EFEBP) and protesting against the non issuance of grants to the boards in the wake of the chief minister's decision to abolish examination and registration fees of public sector educational institutions' students.

In a press statement issued here, BISE Lahore's Employees Welfare Association president Aslam Gujjar and General Secretary Ikram ul Haq said the government had, in fact, overburdened the boards after giving fee-waiver to the students. They said conduct of exams and remuneration to the examination staff was given out of students' fee. "How will the boards bear all this if they are not allowed to receive fee from the students? they asked.

They said the BISEs employees had a meeting with the Higher Education secretary on August 3, 2009 who had assured that the grants would be issued to the boards. "It is unfortunate that despite the passage of four months no grant have been given to the boards", they added.

Librarians demanded uniform pay scales
Lahore: The Punjab chapter of All Pakistan Library Staff Association (APLSA) said it was concerned over disparity in basic pay scales (BPS) of assistant librarians of the government sector colleges of the province.

In a press release, the body's Punjab convener, Muhammad Shahbaz Ahmed, said the government had completely ignored library staff as they had been denied upgradation of posts similar as to the clerks, teachers and laboratory staff.

He said it was strange that despite having similar qualifications and workload assistant librarians of government colleges were working in different pay scale. "Some are working in BPS-5, BPS-6, BPS-7 and BPS-12 and some even in BPS-16", he claimed, adding "It is unfortunate that the government has failed to ensure a uniform pay scale for them". The news
