    Urdu Media War and the Wakf properties tussle in Hyd ; MiM Leader Akbaruddin Owaisi
    (Friday, Dec 09, 2005 – 09:00 pm) TeamMedia war among Urdu dailies was taken to Assembly in Hyderabad, when MIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi accused Siasat and Munsif Urdu daily owners of grabbing Wakf properties and demanded stern action against them.Mr Owaisi armed with statistics and details of all Waqf Lands which are being encroached upon said govt is going soft on these editors as they are trying to threaten the govt through there newspapers .In the same breath he also alleged that no action was taken against grabbers of Wakf properties in city and outside including Viceroy Hotel, Shaam and Sensation theatres, local reports inform. Turning his ire on owners of rival Urdu dailies, Siasat and Musif, he said, “Mr Zahid Ali Khan has illegally encroached Wakf property. He is a white collar land grabber. Why is the government keeping quite? You should put them behind bars.” Shifting his heat on another Urdu daily Munsif owner, he remarked, “Mr Khan Lateef Khan…the double Khan.. too has encroached Wakf properties housing Santosh and Sapna theatres, yet no action has been taken. The government should take stringent action against encroachers of Wakf properties,” he alleged. Reacting to Mr Owaisi’s demand, minister for minorities welfare Mohd Fareeduddin assured that the government would enquire into the matter and would not “spare anyone however big he might be.” Referring to allotment of land to one Tajuddin, he said the land was given on a lease for three years for agricultural purposes and the renewal would depend on the government He also accused them of trying to cover there illegal grabbing of land by bribing some high officals in the govt .

    Down with me for always saying down with lunda! This is awesome; what an eye you have, Jamash. I am going looking for junk next, junk if you call it… I spent my childhood carefully prodding the trash, because I once found Strepsils in there. Could never give up hope.

    I used to think that paintings are the only form of art, But now I know art can be anything, Sculpting, writing , Photography, Video, performance, music, Dance.. Any thing with feelings and a soul is art.

    The only sad thing which I often protest is that some people try to commercialize art, it can be feelings to emotionally blackmailing friends or relatives or a television production just to attract the audience, It can be Catchy music or glamorized dramas. But one thing is for sure, art is something which can’t be commercialized, its soul is from the real dimension, the dimension of feelings, love emotions, spirituality, and commercialism kills the soul of art.

    As for City Art Gallery, I must confess I don’t have a clue where it is, It’s a new art Gallery and this is the first time I have heard of it. Will post a complete address and contact information as soon as I get the location of this gallery confirmed.
