Trending Improv theatre..

A person who is tuned into Karachi’s burgeoning art and music sight will know exactly what Improv theatre is all about as Improvs are happening almost every other weekend at places like T2F, PACC, Thotspot, etc. However, for those of you who don’t know, Improv theatre is a form of live performance where the scenario, the plot, characters, and dialogues are all created on the spot i.e. with no script as a reference, along with the perfect combination of standup comedy. Doesn’t sound easy, does it? Well, it really isn’t. But that is exactly what makes it fun.
This past weekend, the weather wasn’t the only crazy thing happening in Karachi, the Pakistan’s all-girls comedy troupe “The Khawatoons” presented lighthearted show. All girls pulled off yet another startling dramaturgical performance, which took place at Thotspot on 29th April 2017. Following The Auratnaak Show, there were high expectations and a lot of buzz over Lovers Point. Girls successfully captured the confusion and hilarity of the situation, and all the girls did a fantastic job in performing their respective leading lady. The spot was created in an interesting manner, where most of the action takes place. There were more than nine situations to this room, and timing was essential in executing humorous situations, with the characters continuously entering and leaving the scenes. The spontaneity is applauding and up roaring. The audience found themselves relating to unfortunate lovers (Nakam Ashiq’s) situations who gets stuck in a very challenging situation, trying to cover up lies with more lies. Other charms include the situations and typescripts they were completely turning into bringing a whole new life and nostalgic to audience shadowed by heartbreaks. (hehe Evil laugh)
notwithstanding, while watching ladies performing so well my personal favorite Faiza and being not bias at the moment I plummet for Amtul’s performance, the way she dives into the character for myself the Oscar performance was the moment she was stand-in so well for a plastic girl. (Those who were there, can relate to). And those who missed it just look at the happy faces below to get the idea 😉

All things considered, the performance was very well performed, with the lively characters and engaging abrupt interchanges being the highlight of the show, this light-hearted comedy provided a breath of fresh air. Brought a smile to everyone’s face, as it was quite unexpected and much needed to the dire folks of Karachi: D

The Khawatoons rises up to the challenge with a new genre. I for one am already excited to see what they will have in store for us next time!

A Promise …

Pinky-Ring-2 Pinky promise to love yourself ..
I call it Panache self-reminders it is been known fact that the most important person to keep your promises to, is yourself.
well here i’m not talking about you to be selfish or narcissist. Being conceited is one thing but there is a need for understanding not vengeance, ubuntu not victimization.
A small smackerel of something sweet can make a big difference. ❤ so, this little love for yourself is always needed in the living existence. Its about essence of self fidelity & adherence .
Trend follow by this year will be showing the intrinsic trend of  empowerment. my self is not a feminist but her i say empowerment is not its reflection rather i call it a process of growth in ones journey, treating yourself as a priority can make big difference in its own ways and nevertheless to keep the notification alive a sign for self reminder is a must, who can ever overlook the finesse brilliance. 😉
So, all the ladies put your rings up ..  💍

Perspectives are not everyone’s reality.!!

People see from not what God has gifted but through the invisible specs that they have set for them. As it’s been heard quite a few times that you can’t see what I see.

But if we talk about Shakespeare; In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet asks “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet;”
She concludes that it is not a name which gives a thing its essential qualities. A name, in fact, is arbitrary, a rose would still smell sweet even if it were not called a rose. The other way some person’s loom perhaps factitious moreover fictitious. We all know the half full and half empty story since childhood but ever wondered the competence may be extensive perhaps Perspective is everything. You only paint the picture of what your mind chooses to see. It’s just all you need to do is reverence other’s opinion.
Keeping resolutions in mind on trivial level it looks like a fun to do list but for some people it can be a game changer completely, as we grow older and mature our desires turn into wishes and wishes turn into goals and whilst turn out to be destined to do we call it faith, so never stop yourself promising even promise are meant to be broken  😉
The basic connote of all this philosophical debate is I like pondering with ingeniously artistic factors as I second Tim Burton’s saying; “One person’s craziness is another person’s reality.”
What are your thoughts on this?

Cattitude

Pets are the sweet distraction from the daily life’s hustle bustle .. paws
As any cat owner—or even someone who’s seen a cat—knows, it can only be realised when they would be no more in your life..
Sasha to  Pookie now… 
I still remember her first day when we siblings were actually scared of losing her as Papa was not a pet person.. especially cats .. lol.. yes I use the word “specially cats” especially .. well let us leave it behind.. that’s another story will share some other good day 😀

cats are mostly famous for their Cattitude .. but that’s not all actually they got.. They can be many things.. simultaneously… you can experience … flattering, being playful, the stance-goddess, scratchy-monsters, greedy-lover, felicitous purr. These all are the flavours of joy you can enjoy and can feel deeply attached to your pet this attachment will linger on keep you intact with the feelings in this robotic life

Should I say modern taleem e balighan or Bananistan..!!

imageI will prefer giving Bananistan resembles a famous theatre of all time and calling it as Modern taleem e balighan.
Bananistan is a complete laughter riot one can’t resist.
I myself is the victim of Kopycats‘ deliverance the way they keep you involved, laugher jolts which will give you sustained memories.
Every character was allied ideally incomparable. A stinging satire excellently was written, a flawless lampoon of Pakistani politics.
Heartening to have a new paradigm of theatre art in our country.
All boiled down it’s a must see, a series of bon-mot you will rue missing it out.
P.s. Waiting “Abhi say” for Saray 14 August.

Deadly but I know you will find it adorable.. <3

Not any Encyclopedia is a complete guide for men I must add “as for now” it gives a pint-sized hope to be glad on. 😉

Meanwhile, men still can’t summaries women mutiny and the lucidities behind it, I have rather genuinely relatable lexes which will help you guys and for girls don’t get troubled its” to make us laugh” on our own little jokes.

So here we go..
 Fine

This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Two Minutes

If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Two minutes is only 2 minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Nothing

This is the calm before the storm.(so don’t keep calm and just watch the show) This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

Go Ahead

This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

Loud Sigh or a verbal WOW

This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

That’s Okay

This is one of the most treacherous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Thanks

A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say “you’re welcome” . that will bring on a ‘whatever’).
Whatever

It’s a woman’s way of saying “screw you” (because a lady can’t be more unmannerly)

Don’t know…

It’s the indication to let you know that she knows it all but still wants a confession so simply communicate in her way or take highway

Don’t worry about it, I got it

it is another dangerous statement, meaning there is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself.

This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to which you must have known by now and if not then I must say Nothing. 😀

2016 be My Kallos

January 17, 2016

This year, I want to be able to set aside time for myself and make things rejuvenated . Now at first, that might sound like an odd resolution but I had the opportunity to take a calligraphy class & to be more creative in 2016.

Let me start by saying that taking a calligraphy class has been on my to-do list, my wish list, my bucket list, whatever list it was – learning calligraphy was on it. I’m so happy I was able to take a step forward towards a Calligraphy class this year. Why exactly calligraphy ? Well foremost of all, yes – some chow for the right sided head a bit vivid, knack which is intuitive and make me more passionate in the interim leaves everything stress free and enjoyable.

The best part about learning some new art or in my case the art of calligraphy is…. it gives you that exploring instinct for instance  searching for all of the necessary supplies. How great is that?? going to your local craft store in search of items you have no idea what you’re looking for.  you get all the details about what’s what and what everything is used for… pens, nibs, ink, and even paper! You can’t get more detailed than that! I always thought calligraphy was going to be intimidating or may be nerve wrecking at times because of how hard it looks and how effortless professional calligraphers make it seem.

This was not the case at all. More likely it was Oh My God I Suck At This

the expression of  jeopardy…

but thanks heaven I’m doing impressive trend i always wanted to do …

In this hyper era of techno gadgets penmanship and hand writing art becoming very stumpy.

-Fennel Hudson’s citation is so much inspiring for me at times as he says ..

“I take pride in using fountain pens. They represent craftsmanship and a love of writing. Biros, on the other hand, represent the throwaway culture of modern society, which exists on microwave ready-meals and instant coffee.”

Hope you find your creative-imaginative side too and endeavor this year.. !! 

Here’s a little sneak peek of my practice..
