Venice was much better than I expected. I thought that boat would be the primary mode of transportation between places, but it was an excellent walking city with narrow streets and beautiful shops. The different sections of the city are connected via small bridges that allows you to explore entire city bt foot.
I finally launched project MoUSICi with the finest music composer Arshad Mahmud. We are targeting to revive the music industry through creation of fresh and quality content.
The following is the article by Dawn on the launch of the portal:
KARACHI: A web-based music portal called MoUSICi was launched at the Arts Council on Friday evening. The idea is the brainchild of renowned music composer Arshad Mahmud.
Talking to the media about the genesis of the project, Mr Mahmud said for a long time he and some of his friends had a feeling that the kind of fervour and enthusiasm (gahma gahmi) that was once associated with the field of music was lacking. He said when he was 22 years old he began composing music at Pakistan television for different programmes. He said he did that for six years and every week he had to compose three to four tunes. But, he said, such opportunities were available in the country for people like him. At the time, he recalled, he and singer Nayyara Noor used to look for places to rehearse but would invariably find the rehearsal rooms occupied by luminaries such as Khalil Ahmed or Master Manzoor, composing or teaching music. He said all week round, five to six composers would be creating music and all that material was being heard and enjoyed to date.
Mr Mahmud said he thought that today the youth of the country did not have similar opportunities. To tackle the problem, he said, he had this idea in mind which he discussed with his friend Nafees Ahmed (sitar player).

I shared my racket with Sony Smart Sensor with a friend yesterday and got my data mixed up with his. While trying to delete partial data, I found the following:
- You can delete data only of a particular date, not partial data based on shots or time within a single date
- To delete data, press and hold the date in the app and select delete from the popup menu
- The data will be immediately deleted from your smartphone/tablet and Sony server if connected to internet
- The data will NOT be deleted from sensor if the sensor was disconnected from your device at time of deletion. The same data will be imported back when you synchronize the Sensor with the App. In order to delete from the sensor as well, make sure that the sensor is connected to the app while deleting.
This applies to the following version:
- Application Version: 1.1.2
- Sensor Version 1.0.2
After experimenting with tennis for a couple of weeks on beginners racket, my coach told me that I will get at least 25% improvement in game by getting a better racket. While searching for suitable racket on forums, I found this Sony Smart Sensor that works in couple of compatible rackets of selected manufacturers.
Based on availability, reviews and other playing preferences, I decided to go with Prince 107T racket that was on compatible with Sony Smart Sensors.
The feel and crispy sound of new racket felt great on first day of play. The sensor generated lots of data in 30 minutes of playing. I can’t make sense of data at this time, but hopefully it will give trends in longer run and hint the flaws and improvements in the game.
I used the sensor with iPhone and iPad and it was quite easy to setup through its app.
