KU introduces computerised system to prevent 'corruption'
Karachi: The University of Karachi (KU) has introduced an Oracle-based system to stop corruption and malpractices in the examination department.

The university would now issue a computerised voucher on a daily basis for maintaining a record of fees submitted for the issuance of mark sheets, said KU officials on Friday. Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Pirzada Qasim was informed that students paid a standard fee to collect their marks sheets, but that they would regularly influence or pressure the administration into releasing marks within a few days.

"After the implementation of this system, the university administration will be able to keep a close eye on malpractices in the examination department. This is expected to save Rs2.5 to Rs3 million annually," they added.

The officials also said that a monitoring cell had been established to check the performance of the computerised system. Fee submission date extended; Students enrolled in Karachi University's masters and BS degree programmes (morning) for the 2012 academic session can deposit their admission fees on January 4. The students have been directed to bring their educational documents along with the fees, which can be submitted between 9am and 1pm.

"If students fail to submit their fees on January 4, their admissions will be cancelled," said the admission committee director of the university.

Sindhi literature: three books of distinction in 2011
Karachi: Looking at the Sindhi literary works published in the year 2011, three books - two poetry collections and one short stories book - made distinction in terms of content, creativity and diversity of themes.

The poetry collection of late Hassan Dars with the title Hassan Dars jo Risalo published by the Indus Foundation gave him the status of a leading poet after Shaikh Ayaz because of the above mentioned criteria. Dars was born on September 5, 1966 and died in a road accident in Hyderabad on June 16, 2011. Hassan Dars jo Risalo, which was published in a hurried manner, is said to be incomplete because the works of the lyricist had been scattered and his writer friends and family members are still trying to collect all of his works that could be compiled later.

Born in the scenic village Mashaikh Hothi of Tando Allahyar district, late Hassan Dars earned more respect in Sindhi poetry and prose because of having a different style, lyrics and craftsmanship. He was very much inspired by Sufi poets and folk singers as he used to visit traditional melas (festivals) in the province and gained more knowledge about music, sur and the art of composition, which made him different from his contemporary poets and writers.

However, his untimely death shattered his dreams and Sindh lost a lovely poet. Hassan Dar's family members and friends paid him tribute by publishing his 400-page book that was dedicated to his three children and the preface was written by his beloved wife Erum Mahboob, who herself is a renowned poetess.

Mohan Madhosh, who runs his Kaweeta Publication, claims to have produced 10 books on creative literature as well as supporting other writers individually for publishing 30 more books on different topics. He says that since the market mechanism is not favourable for sending books to other provinces or abroad, publishers here are reluctant to invest more specifically on publication.

The Sindhi Language Authority has published 20 books among which none is based on creative literature, poetry and fiction. Similar is the status of government-run Sindhi Adabi Board, which is now facing administrative crisis because of political interference. The Sindh Culture Department has published five books focusing on the poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai during the ending year.

Rakhial Morai, a poet and well aware of the books being produced in Sindhi language in Pakistan and India, says: "We did not receive a single book of poetry and fiction during the last 20 years. The books being produced here had already been written earlier." He named few writers like Hassan Dars, Bakhshan Mahranvi and Ahmed Solangi as the poets and Liaquat Rizvi as fiction writer, who have made significant contributions to this effect.

Bakhshan Mahranvi is another poet and a contemporary to Hassan Dars, whose poetry collection "Iltaja" has been published by Roshni Publication Hyderabad. Both the books contain old works created in eighties and afterwards. However, despite being most creative poets they never took it seriously to get their books published by themselves. Bakhshan approached a private publisher after a long time for getting his book published with the remarks of various poets, including Shaikh Ayaz.

Going through these books one may observe the influence of the Movement for Restoration of Democracy (MRD), 1983-86, which inspired several poets and short story writers. Dars and Mahranvi contributed a lot by portraying the brutalities and what the people of the province faced during the struggle against dictatorship. The two books contain poems, mostly free verses, which depicts the scenario of that period.

Bakhshan claims to have still sufficient work with him that will be published soon. He says that the book Iltaja contains selective poems created during eighties, nineties and later on.

The similarity between both the poet friends (Bakhshan and Hassan) is that several leading musicians have composed their poetry and performed at literary functions. Romance, photographic idiom and aestheticism have refined their poetry.

The second short stories collection of Liaquat Rizvi, published by the Creators Publication with the title "233" is another landmark piece in Sindhi literature during the ending year. His book contains themes that differ from his contemporary writers and those who greatly inspired the readers in the past. Critics call him "the advocate of surrealism and existentialism". He is a strange and disconcerting genius of Sindhi literature.

Madad Ali Sindhi, who himself is one of the leading modern short story writers of Sindh, describes Rizvi's style and themes as different from his contemporaries. The work of three writers is yet to be assessed by literary critics.

However, in the year 2011 Sindh suffered unbearable loss to its literature in the death of three highly reputable writers - Hassan Dars, Tariq Alam Abro and Dr Mansoor Malik. The news
