    ArtNow: Pakistan's First Online Art Magazine

    KARACHI: It was in December last year that William Lawrie, the co-owner of a gallery in Dubai, was so inspired by a Pakistani art catalogue that he decided to visit the country to check out its art scene.

    I have seen thousands of catalogues in my life but the one on Rising Tide at Mohatta Palace struck a chord,” he said. “The very next morning I decided to come to Pakistan.”

    He spoke at the launch of ArtNow, the country’s only bilingual online magazine on contemporary art. Although the magazine has been in print for six months, its official launch took place on Friday at Port Grand.

    A jubilant and excited editor-in-chief, Fawzia Naqvi, said that the aim of the magazine was to highlight young and upcoming artists and to create a space for Pakistani artists in foreign galleries. “We want to portray Pakistan’s positive image on the international front,” she said.

    Lawrie also praised the art studies in Pakistan. “I think the standard of art education is high in the country,” he said. “What the National College of Arts (NCA), the Indus Valley of Art and Architecture are doing is great.”

    Rescue at high sea

    It had been 52 days at sea for Jan Sayed and his crew of 17 men – it was time for them to return home to Karachi and their families.

    As the Safina Abdul Wahid, a 42-meter fishing trawler, sailed back towards Karachi, there were some rumblings in the engine. Sayed and his crew tried to figure out the problem, propulsion came to a halt and the engine stopped working.

    With food and fuel enough only for a few more days, the Safina Abdul Wahid was stranded on open waters in the North Arabian Sea – 196 nautical miles away from the coast and only a VHF radio to call for help.

    As the next day rolled in, Sayed and his crew finally managed to get in touch with a near-by trawler, through a satellite phone on board. Within the hour Kamil Yar and Jan Mohammad, the owners of the trawler were at the Headquarters of the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency (PMSA). The PMSA is responsible, among many other things, for search and rescue operations within Pakistan’s maritime borders.

    The Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) sent out a search and rescue mission, first to find the trawler by air. By 4 pm on Monday, the marines had their ship, the Vehdat out at sea. By Tuesday the trawler had been spotted. It was finally on Thursday that the Vehdat reached the fishermen and began towing them home.

    “We found the fishermen 25 nautical miles away from where we had initially located them,” said Commander Rizwan Riaz, captain of the Vehdat. “They were lucky.”

    According to Riaz, the trawler was just a few miles away from drifting out of Pakistan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and towards the east African coast.

    There are almost 20,000 small to medium fishing boats out at sea in Pakistan, along the Balochistan and Sindh coast. It is the PMSA’s responsibility to protect these fishermen if in distress and to make sure they have life-saving equipment on board before they go out to sea.

    Three-day tent-pegging competition begins in capital

    ISLAMABAD: Over 300 horse riders from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Friday took part in a three-day tent pegging competition at Fatima Jinnah Park.

    The Capital Development Authority (CDA) organised the event in which members of prominent tent pegging clubs demonstrated the skills of horse riding as a cavalry sport of ancient origin.

    Horsemen and teams from across Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are participating in the event.

    According to the rules of tent-pegging, riders mounted on horseback running at full gallop, use weapons to strike tent stakes. The event starts the spring festivities in the federal capital. The event was inaugurated by Prime Minister’s Task Force on Islamabad Chairman Faisal Sakhi Butt, who pledged to make the traditional game a regular feature in this region and announced to establish a permanent ground for the purpose, saying “A sports ground of international standard would be set up in the capital for provision of quality sports facility for these traditional games.” Butt said the competition in the capital is taking place after eight years as the last event was held in 2004.

    He said other such events would be held in federal capital on regular basis with the support of different organisations.
