Exams, security concerns force boarders to stay on
Lahore: A number of students from others cities of the country, studying in various institutions of the city, will not be able to celebrate Eid in their hometowns due to exams and security concerns.
A large number of boarders from across the country study in the city's intuitions, including King Edward Medical University (KEMU), University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Beaconhouse National University (BNU), Allama Iqbal Medical College (AIMC), Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Government College University (GCU), Forman Christian College and Punjab University (PU).
An FJMC final year student from Dera Ghazi Khan said she would not go to her hometown, as she had to sit exam in the first week of December. Hajra, a GCU student from Bahawalpur, said her schedule was tight so she had decided not to visit her hometown on this Eid.
Gulshan, an MPhil student at PU, said roads to her hometown Gilgit were closed due to heavy snowfall. She said a majority of Gilgitian students visited their hometown only in summer holidays. "This is not for the first time I am celebrating Eid away from home," she added.
Fatima, another PU student from Hunza, said, "As students of Gilgit-Baltistan cannot visit their hometown on Eid and other events they arrange gatherings at hostels. Some of them also visit their city fellows living in Lahore."
Tanzeelur Rehman, a KEMU student from Waziristan, said he would celebrate Eid in Lahore due to the ongoing military offensive in his hometown. He said financial compulsions also refrained them from visiting their hometown on such occasions. Qamar Zaman Khan, a PU student from Swat, said he would not visit his hometown as his family had suffered a lot in the offensive against Taliban.
PU Registrar Dr Naeem Ahmad Khan said the university had given a fee concession to students from war-torn areas. He said they would financially assist such students on Eid. Daily times
Shortage of funds, Mismanagement at art institute
Lahore: The shortage of funds and mismanagement has been affecting the Punjab Institute of Language Art and Culture (PILAC) for the last many years, sources informed. There has been no board of governors of the institute and no curator for its museum.
An official said the only money available with the institute was to pay salaries to staff and utility bills. The paucity of funds has hit hard the transmission of an FM Punjab rang radio and the museum that features Punjab's heritage. No new artifacts could be bought to update the museum. The government allocated Rs25,000 as annual library grant and a few books can be bought through the money.
According to one official, the bad shape of the institute reflects the government's seriousness with culture which has always been at the lowest priority.
He said PILAC lacked appropriate staff for various posts which has affected cultural activities such as exhibitions, theatrical performances and dialogue on art. The monthly magazine of PILAC, Tarinjan, could not be published for over one year and even now the magazine is not being published on a regular basis. An official said that they would be able to publish the magazine regularly from December.
The post of curator has been lying vacant for the last four months. A meeting of experts was held early this year to improve the museum not only the collection but also to improve the standard of display. Since there is no curator at the museum, things witnessed hardly any improvement.
The FM Punjab Rang Radio has not been able to start its regular transmission for over a year. An official say that they have demanded that the government grant them Rs10 million. For the last couple of years, the institute does not have any board of governors. The first board was made in Nov 2004 and it was reconstituted in August 16, 2005.
Information and Culture Secretary Shoaib Bin Aziz said PILAC did not lack funds but with their supply. "I will look into PILAC affairs soon after Eid holidays," he said. Dawn
