Every show of M.A. Rahman Chughtai in his life time was inaugurated at leading places by the serving Head of State. All newspapers reported those events as big happenings. Our archives are full of them. We hare a headline from Daily Imroze, the leading Urdu newspaper of its time. Culturally oriented to the extreme. And compare the narrow minded reporting that happens today. Newspapers hired their best persons to write on Art, today no best persons are even around. The tenacity of Pakistan Art to hang here without support is familiar to Pakistan itself, which has the resilience to survive the 4th and 5th generation wars launched by enemy lobbies.
