GCU HOSTS PATRAS-FAIZ SEMINAR

 

The Urdu Department GCU hosted a Patras-Faiz Seminar to mark the death anniversary of Prof. Ahmed Shah Bokhari 'Patras' – the great writer, translator, teacher, broadcaster and finally a diplomat at the highest levels of the United Nations, and to pay tribute to Fiaz Ahmad Fiaz – a noted poet and student Prof. Ahmed Shah Bokhari 'Patras'. GCU Vice Chancellor Prof. (Meritorious) Dr. Muhammad Khaleeq ur Rehman; Izaz-I-Kamal was the chief guest at the seminar which was also addressed by Faiz’ grandson Ali Madeeh Hashmi, Faiz’ daughter Muneeza Hashmi, Patras’ son Haroon Bokhari, Dr. Saadat Saeed and Dr. Shafeeq Aajmi.

 

Addressing the seminar, Prof. Khaleeq said that the GC University is proud to be the alma mater of great poets and men of letters like Allama Muhammad Iqbal, Prof. Ahmed Shah Bokhari 'Patras' and Faiz Ahmed Faiz and will keep their traditions alive. He said the literary works of these great men are like lampposts which guide them to peace and progress. The Vice Chancellor also highlighted the various aspects of 'Patras' and Faiz’s personality.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Ali Madeeh Hashmi remembered Prof. Ahmed Shah Bokhari 'Patras', as Professor of English at Government College Lahore, was merciless on students who did not display originality of thought. One former student, author Kanhaiya Lal Kapoor, writes in an essay: "In my first exam, I wrote several quotes from famous critics and writers. Mr. Bokhari gave me a zero and wrote 'you have written verbatim quotes in several places from FL Lucas and Professor Quiller-Couch. They were my teachers in Cambridge and obviously I am not qualified to be their examiner. I am examining you.'"

 

He said that 'Faiz’ and ‘Patras’ had a close personal friendship in addition to a student-mentor one. While Faiz always spoke reverently of his teacher, Bokhari, in typically irreverent style, once wrote to Faiz's wife Alys from London a few months before his death in 1958: "I would love to hear news of your household but also know that he [Faiz] never will write since he is an intoxicated poet ["shair-e-must"]. I heard somewhere that he is being sent to jail then heard that the offer of hospitality had been withdrawn. I cannot decide what I find funnier, that they are going to lock him up or that they are not. You and I would prefer, of course, that he remain with us rather than us going around filling forms to see him." Speaking on the occasion, Faiz’ daughter Muneeza Hashmi shared her childhood interactions with legendary Patras Bokhari who had come to share a few moments with a pupil he loved dearly, Faiz.

 

Dr. Saadat Saeed and Dr. Shafeeq Aajmi also paid tribute of ‘Patras’ and ‘Faiz’. The Debating Society’s public-speakers presented an oratorical rendition of Faiz’s verses and Patras Bokhari’s literary writings in the tradition of the legendary Zulfiqar Bokhari and Zia Moeud Deen, while the musicians and singer of GCU Nazir Ahmed Music Society also presented Kalam-e-Faiz.

GC UNIVERSITY LAHORE HOLDS SEMINAR ON IQBAL’S PHILOSOPHY AND CONTEMPORARY PAKISTAN

 

GC University Lahore organized a one-day seminar on “Iqbal’s Philosophy and Cotemporary Pakistan,” (Fiqr-e-Iqbal and Aaj Ka Pakistan) to enlighten the youth about the visionary thoughts of the great national poet.  GCU Vice Chancellor Prof. (Meritorious) Dr. Muhammad Khaleeq-ur-Rahman chaired the seminar while PML-N Member National Assembly Ahsan Iqbal was the Key Speaker. Opening the seminar, the members of Nazir Ahmed Music Society (NAMS) presented several poems of Allama Muhammad Iqbal which were composed Tariq Farani, while GCU Debating Society orators presented an oratorical rendition of Iqbal’s verses.

 

Addressing the seminar, Ahsan Iqbal pointed that Allama Muhammad Iqbal made four invaluable contributions for the Pakistan movement. He emancipated the South Asian Muslims from the slavish mentality and revived their faith in their collective strength. Secondly, he advised them to take up untiring struggle in every walk of life and preserve their self-esteem at all costs. Thirdly, he asserted that a separate homeland for the Muslims of South Asia was indispensable. Last but not the least, Allama Iqbal persuaded the Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah to lead the movement for the independence of South Asian Muslims at a time when Quaid-i-Azam had settled down in Britain due to disillusionment, Ahsan Iqbal said.  

 

Speaking on the occasion, Vice Chancellor Prof. (Meritorious) Dr. Muhammad Khaleeq-ur-Rahman said that Iqbal’s concept of Khudi guides us to regain our lost glory. “His philosophy tells how to set right the affairs of politics, economy and education in line with the injunctions of Islam,” he added.  The Vice Chancellor asserted that it was knowledge and creativity rather than wealth and weapons that afforded superiority to any nation in the current age. Therefore, we must strive for academic excellence in the light of Iqbal’s vision.

Prof. Dr. Saadat Saeed said that the eradication of economic exploitation was the corner stone of Iqbal’s political thought. He had predicted the fall of capitalism and communism since both these regimes are contravenes to the principles of natural justice. Prof. Dr. Khursheed Rizvi; Distinguished Professor GCU, opined that Iqbal was to the Muslims what Sheakhsphere was to the English. “No other thinker or poet in the Muslim tradition has ever come close the pedestal where destiny has placed Iqbal,” he added. GCU Urdu Department Chairperson Dr. Shafiq Aajmi also addressed the seminar.

 

Later, the Vice Chancellor gave away shields to the guest speakers.

GcU ZOOLOGY DEPARTMENT recommends bio-control of dengue

 

The Government College University Lahore Zoology Department has recommended biological control of dengue, saying that fumigation and sprays can be used as emergency measures but they are not the permanent solutions. “Mosquitoes after sometime develop resistance against the chemicals used in fumigation and sprays,” said Zoology Department Chairperson Prof. Dr. Nusrat Jahan while addressing the university’s faculty members on “prevention and control of dengue fever”. GCU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Khaleeq-ur-Rahman was also present on the occasion.

 

Prof. Dr. Nusrat Jahan said that biological control or "biocontrol" is the use of natural enemies to manage mosquito populations with a minimum risk to humans, wildlife and the environment. “The use of biological agents includes predatory insects and other invertebrates, such as copepods, parasitic nematodes, larvivorous fish, and microbial entomopathogens including Bacillus thuringiensis. The different formulations of these biological insecticides are commercially available and due to their environmental safety and specificity to nematoceran Diptera (including mosquitoes) have become mosquito control agents of choice almost throughout the world,” Prof. Dr. Nusrat Jahan added. She further said that after the first outbreak, a research was started in GCU using many biological control agents and results were evaluated on the base of lethal concentrations, percentage larval mortalities and pupae/adult emergence both in laboratory and field bioassays. At present the Department are in the process of detecting dengue viruses in vector mosquitoes which will act as early warning tool for the control of dengue in Pakistan.  She laid a particular stress on the need to support the research in the area of Medical entomology for developing population management strategies of dengue vectors in Pakistan.

 

Prof. Nusrat Jahan also highlighted the use of “lethal ovitraps” in houses and other places to control mosquitoes’ population. “These ovitrap can be made through a black plastic container filled with water containing a thin paddle of wood. The ovitrap could be made lethal for mosquitoes by using chemical/biological insecticides,” she added. Dr. Nusrat said the use of small crustaceans known as copepods; two species identified recently in Vector Biology laboratory as “Mesocyclops” when mixed with Bti were found highly successful (100%) to control Ist instars Aedes larvae in large ornamental pounds or in other containers with large volume of water. She said in Pakistan first outbreak of Dengue Fever was reported from Karachi in 1994. She called on students and teachers to develop a habit of emptying and cleaning water storage containers, gutters, flower vases and desert coolers, proper disposal of discarded containers and tyres; removal of ornamental or wild plants that collect water in the leaf axils.

 

Speaking on the occasion, the Vice Chancellor GC University Lahore Prof. Dr. Muhammad Khaleeq-ur-Rahman said that the university will support the research being conducted by the Zoology Department on biological control of dengue fever. He said that the GC University Lahore is using the best available chemicals for fumigation. He announced that the university is also holding fumigation in surrounding areas besides distributing posters especially prepared by the university to raise awareness among people about the dengue fever and its prevention. He said that it is our collective duty to fight against dengue.

The Ravi 2010  (Volume XCVII)

The 97th edition of the oldest academic literary magazine of the sub-continent “The Ravi” has come out on Saturday with literary and research articles by noted writers, professors, old Ravians and the university students.

He said people like Nobel Laureate Prof. Dr. Abdus Salam, A.S Bukhari and N.M Rashid are among its former editors.

He further said that in present era, the number of books was increasing rapidly but unfortunately trend of book reading was declining day-by-day. Reminiscing his time spent at the Government College as a student back in 1950, he paid homage to his outstanding professors particularly Sufi Ghulam Mustafa Tabassum. He said he used to pen down articles while sitting in the lash green Oval Ground of GCU. He urged the youth to inculcate among them the love for book-reading.

 

He also shared his memories of moments of Pakistan with audience, he said “Late Liaquat Ali Khan awarded me sword with a certificate of ‘Mujahid-e-Pakistan’ so I am a certified Mujahid and fighting through speech and writings in my newspaper, and Nawa-i-Waqt/The Nation raise voice against every dictator”, he said adding that from Ayub Khan to Pervaiz Musharaf, he always questioned all of them in their briefings that ‘Saadi jann kadon chaddo ge’ (when will they go?). He said that the real task of the army was to secure our national frontiers, while the nation was ready to render any sacrifice for the soldiers standing at guard on the national borders to counter any threat from our traditional enemy, India.

 

Later, Mr. Majid Nizami unveiled the commemorative plaque at the Amt-ul-Arifa Reading Room.

Chief Minister Punjab presides over a debate on Economic Sovereignty and Self-reliance At GCU

 

The students of the GC University Lahore passed a resolution after a heated debate that Pakistan ought to break the begging bowl and embark on the journey of self-reliance culminating in economic sovereignty. It transpired at the historic seminar where Punjab Chief Minister Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif presided over the debate on “Economic Sovereignty and Self-reliance” and candidly responded to a volley of fire-brand questions put to him by the young Ravians. The GCU students argued about the dire need and viability of self-reliance in connection with Pakistan’s current economic landscape at the backdrop of national security situation and multi-faceted challenges. A large number of members of the Punjab cabinet and Punjab Assembly were also present on the occasion.

 

Speaking on the occasion, GCU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ikram-ul-Haq (SI) recalled that all the great socio-political movements were initiated or spearheaded by Ravians. “Likewise, the movement for economic self-reliance has been ignited by an old Ravain from the GCU podium,” he added.

Opening the debate, Zeenia Mansoor, a student BSc (Honors) in Biotechnology, drew the audience’s attention to the vast economic potential of Pakistan in minerals, agriculture, livestock, dairy and above all human resource. Looking at the negative side of the motion, Kamran Hussain Hashmi, a student of intermediate, opined that sovereignty – economic and political – could only be safeguarded through across the board accountability so that foreign loans could be rightly utilized for national uplift and paid back within the stipulated time. The center point of his debate was that a knife is not harmful per say. Rather, it was the peculiar use that labeled it as good or bad. The most vociferous defense of economic self-reliance came from Saadul Hassan, a student of BA (Hons) in English literature. He came down heavily on the political elite who put the nation’s destiny in jeopardy in return for their vested interests. He chided the decision makers who held reins of this country for the last 63 years for having proved to be a modern-day Faustus who sell their souls to the Devil for the sake of power and vanity. He deplored the fate of every new-born Pakistani baby who inherits a debt of Rs 30,000 at the time of his/her birth – a gift from the ruling junta! Concluding the debate Noorus Saba, a student of BSc (Hons) in Chemistry, stressed the dire need to strengthen the mechanism of accountability, so that the looters and plunderers could be brought to the book. She believed that there was no harm if the countries helped each other. All that was needed was the right utilization of foreign debt.

 

The speakers interspersed their discourse with emotionally charged verses by Mirza Ghalib, Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Habib Jalib. Nazir Ahmed Music Society played Kalam-e-Iqbal and inspirational national songs at the occasion.
