MARASIS AND PHANDS INVASION OF OUR DRAWING ROOMS
EVERY DAY MEDIA PATRONIZING VULGARITY IN OUR HOMES
It was unthinkable a few decades back. All our children knew the difference between dignity ad vulgarity. Crass jokes of the man on the street were unthinkable in our drawing rooms, and the subjects fulsome in all ways. Innuendos of sexual behavior and making fun of victimized boys, assaulted at working places. Room for jokes here! Has our every day morality sunk to such lows? How and why did this invasion occur?
Most of these actors and actresses are street born and street spun. Undignified behavior. Imtiaz Ali Taj and Hijab Taj would have fainted in the spells of such people at Alhamra Art Center. A cultural place for advancement of Islamic Culture marooned on the threshold of money making mechanism. While our political leaders are devising ways of being scot free from any scrutiny, the quality of our laughter is no longer that of human beings.
Foreign lobbies have fascinated us with stress on FOLK ARTS, while shunning FINE ARTS from society. Our Identity and our Ideology is at stake. While Fine Arts are related to copied narratives of Western Masters, we do not see the evil being generated by this gimmickry of Art in Pakistan. More on that later!
The RAW DEAL spun on our cultural activities. Our celebration of BASANT with kite flying as well as cricket matches. Thanks Allah that our Army is trying to rescue our Cricket sports from the clutches of money makers. One should explore who was responsible for the kite flying debacle. It is time to restore dignity all around to make Pakistan Pakistan again.
