Scientific Exhibition @ Alliance Française

2009 is the international year of astronomy.

This international year of astronomy aims at helping the world citizens to rediscover the universe by observing the sky, during day and at night, and at making everyone feel the wonder of discovery.

The international year of astronomy is a global celebration of astronomy and its contribution to society and culture, motivated by the 400th anniversary of the first use of the telescope by Galileo.

On this occasion, Alliance Française de Karachi invites you to discover an exhibition dealing with the history, the projects in process and those to come up, the discoveries and the technologies related to one of the most exciting and fascinating field of science.

12 to 19 June at Alliance Française de Karachi.

PS: Got this in email, and it seems to be worth checking.

    @ balma

    What does a science exibition has do to in karachi..?? Or in pakistan as a matter of fact.

    All innovations in past 1400 years are all sin.

    Death to all, no use of modren technology….only exemptions being grantd to loudspeakers, SUVs, kalashankofs and FM 89.

    Jazak allah

    I wasn’t trying to be funny or anything. I just thought Muslim scientists had worked on optics before Galileo bhai.

    Coming to fussy’s point, loud speaker was a shaitani aalah until my father’s childhood, and TV was a shaitani Dibbah until my childhood:-)

    Good for u sir, it has a pethetic parking place, as a matter of fact, all so called 5 star hotels have pethetic parking places, and worse, they r gobling up there space to make more room and let the visitors suffer……today am sitting in sheraton after an ugly hour going thru shearton, PC, and plot infront of gymkhana parking all full….I had to park near PIDC bridge and walk there from my phatphati… much for a lavish experience…it sucks big time yar

  10. بستنی (wasiq) on June 19th, 2009 @ 1:31 am

    Yup, I get the idea, infact the wacky security there was a bund of paraniod, hyper yet visibly non trained staff doing there best to check who was a bomber who is not.

    What I fail to understand is, I carry a bag in the car boot ,which in any xray vision wud look like a bomb, coz it has fire extinguisher, water bottle, petrol bottle, jumper cables, batteries and a torch and lotsa rope and tools.

    My friends have suggested and I agree, that all such things in a compact bag shows in xray some canisters, with lotsa tangled wire and lota metal pieces and some batteries……now even a kid wud smell it as a bomb with a timer.

    Yet never on airport, or any hotel or shoping mart never ever have anyone asked me what the hell this bag is, or even bothered to open that…….shud I feel safe with that level of security…??

    Ohh just last week, in 2 years, only one guy asked me, sahab aisi chezin mat rakha karin, halat sai nai, bilawaja kaheen phans na jain…..and that was my mechanic at honda…:)guess he shud be the head of security then A.R.rehman

  12. بستنی (wasiq) on June 19th, 2009 @ 8:23 am

    @fasee sab….sir aap ka toh pata nahein….per I have had wacky security at the corner of the street…so when ever I visit such a place where I have to pass the security check…and they try to be extra efficient…I think to my self…."kya ghar walay scanner ki batteries low thein…?"

  13. fasee on June 19th, 2009 @ 12:28 pm

    @ wasiq

    I wud suggest that sleepy pathan chowkiadar with a whistle, hired in name of security, and buy a scarecrow…it will look more clean an smart, and will be on almost equal payscale

  14. بستنی (wasiq) on June 20th, 2009 @ 9:25 am

    @fasee sab….you wont believe this sir…the centuries old chowkidar with a whistle who used to whistle at anybody anytime during the night has now been banned by the security….he brought his father to complain only day before yesterday…

    Bar rule:by proving that hamari setee goum hai you cannot win extra time…!
