This project is being carried out to praise the little yet significant things of our natural habitat, that usually go unnoticed. The goal is to get a reflection essentially of all the simplicity and complexity, our Earth encompasses. Our primary focus is on natural things around us that we take for granted and don’t genuinely appreciate. Unfortunately, our Planet Earth and its inhabitants are already under a devastating threat due to global warming, excessive urbanization and several other fac...

In a world overcome by hate and disunity people have started emphasizing on barriers among themselves that separate them into various groups rather than as fellow human beings. Our reasons of separation are endless be it through the rifts of religion, nationality, social class or even our skin color. Yet we seldom look upon the many commonalities between us, those which truly characterize us. In light of this I wished to share this detrimental challenge and I wanted to do this in a creative and...

[This piece was originally published in Dawn Newspaper] The debate on climate change — the actions we should or should not take — has long been undermined by political and financial resources. The burgeoning increase in population, escalating consumerism and rising industrialisation have moreover, added further obstacles. But for every cynic and sceptic who believes that either it’s too late to save the planet, or, even worse, that global warming is a myth, there are scores of committed i...

It was only last year that Pakistan faced the massive devastation that came with the 2010 Floods. Since then we have had our share of terrorist attacks, economic catastrophes and political uncertainty. Conversely as time passed and other headliners engrossed our local and international news channels the stories of the flood victims soon began to disappear. Now as we move into 6 months of rehabilitation and recovery, the affected still remain in ill-equipped relief camps waiting for things to rea...

Over 60 youth activists from countries like Thailand, Somalia, Mauritius, Jordan, Indonesia and Sri Lanka among others all gathered to be part of Pakistan’s first International Youth Conference and Festival. With the current nexus of security threat engulfing Pakistan, it was quite hard to im...
