AFTER ALIEN SIGHTINGS COME THE MEN IN BLACK, UNRESOLVED MYSTERY
CHUGHTAI MUSEUM VISITED BY STRANGE APPARITIONS DISGUISED AS ART LOVERS
DISGUST PREVAILS OVER SUCH NINCOMPOOPS
M.A. Rahman Chughtai used to make a very aristocratic statement, which we could not understand then. He would says EXPOSING COMMON PEOPLE TO FINE ARTS DOES THEM MORE HARM THAN GOOD. We did not follow his suggestion. We would let every Tom, Dick and Harry into our museum. And what happened? It startled us. People with no knowledge of Art of any kind, were ready to make sweeping statements which bewildered us beyond comprehension.
We really cannot understand these MEN IN BLACK. The strangest statements are made to us. Why we have trees on our site? Why we have pet birds? Why we do not have thirty shops in front for us to raise money every month? Why we have a museum at all? What is a museum? What benefits do we get out of same? It is mind boggllng how ridiculous people can get? Some people have a word or two as a stereotype. Where is the Murraqqa Chughtai? Where is Amal e Chughtai? Why is there a MATT finish. Glossy is in! Why not better for us to open a shadi ghar? Rent out the upper portion. Young men claim to be above hundred. Teachers from Okara promise me Desi Ghee as compensation for my time. Stone specialists from Khanewal trying to bribe my guards. People claiming to be close buddies of those in power, promising immediate changing of our future. Disgust is all that remains at low IQ and EQ of people
Then there are those SELF STYLED CRITICS who try to tell us and find faults with the Art in itself. This line should have gone straight, this arm is too long, the face too broad and what not? Why so many clothes in the Art? Why there are no clothes in the Art? Geometrical drawing is not right. ALLAH MAFI DO IN ULOO KAY PATHAON SAY! No knowledge of Art and claiming to be Master Critics.
The people on the internet are no different. Countless enquiries, when we reply with love and gusto, no reply at all. Sending us attachments to open to hack us, to destroy us, to bombard us out of existence. Yes, there are individual ZEROS like this, but there are also lobbies. Lobbies working at behest of foreign lobbies, who get irritated at our national work. My computer person tells me with a laughter., People get paid by millions to destroy the Ideology of Pakistan, you are doing it free to stop the same. You are promoting Ideology with your heart and soul.
I had good,loving parents. They were true Muslims and true lovers of Pakistan. They used to say PAISA TO KANGEROAN KAY PASS BE HOTA HAI, IZZAT KISI KISI KO MILTI HAI. Low IQ governmental people have no idea of people who can sacrifice for their country. Who would understand Sir Syed Ahmad Khan today? And yet Aligarh is still there. I thank all those who have given us love and respect and dignity to our souls. There are good guys who came here but with each moment, the number is getting less and less.
I specially indebted to all foreigners who come here, amazing people. They enjoy Art to the fullest. I feel proud of their visit. Thousands of foreigners have come here, hardly any one has disappointed me. A simple fact, Pakistanis are not aesthetically knowledgeable people. And the followers of Art Gimmicky in Pakistan has put them in total spin of anarchy. In the end artists like M.A. Rahman Chughtai are essential for the Identity of Pakistan. When it was words for Dr Allama Iqbal, here there are images. An image of Pakistan to come! It is this future which keeps us kicking. It is the future which gives us hope. We know we are essential to Pakistan, and Pakistan is essential to us. Yes, Pakistan Forever!
