Dramatics Society in Lahore School of Economics organized two plays on 11th and 12th April 2016: Punjabi classical folklore Heer by Warish Shah and a farcical comedy Charley’s Aunt by Brandon Thomas.
It has been 250 years since Waris Shah’s magnum opus, Heer was written in Malka Hans, Punjab. The qissa undoubtedly stands at the centre of the Punjabi literary tradition, echoing across time, across genres, reinventing itself through the works of poetic giants such as Madhu Lal Hussain, Bulleh Shah and Sachal Sarmast. In addition to its intellectual value, Heer Waris has also had a vibrant performative life, animating Punjab’s folk tradition and consciousness through popular music and theatre. Today, the place of Heer Waris in the local imaginary is shrinking rapidly, making it more important than ever to re-visit the monumental epic to try to re-vitalise the historical cultural links which Punjab has lost.Read more »

Since the 1980s, and until recently, rapid globalisation — driven in part by the unprecedented pace of technological change, especially in information and communications technologies (ICT) — has allowed several developing countries (including China and India) to take advantage of these developments and achieve exceptionally high rates of economic growth, even soaring to double digits.
Unfortunately, Pakistan, which was among the 10 fastest-growing economies of the world during 1960-90, has not been one of them. This is despite the fact that, in many ways, Pakistan was a more open and globalised economy than either China or India in the early 1980s. While Pakistan’s low and declining economic growth during 1990-2015 (except for a brief spurt in 2003-06) has been the subject of considerable rumination, an important factor responsible for this outcome, ie labour productivity, has not received the attention it deserves.
