Rise of Pakistani Entertainment Industry
Entertainment is an action or activity which holds the interest of audience or provides them amusement. The modern forms of entertainment have a long history. Most recognizable forms of entertainment are theatre, circus drama, dance, music, games and storytelling. The primarily purpose of entertainment is having fun and laughter. Although some forms of entertainment can have serious purposes. The audience may have active or passive roles during an entertainment activity. Modern technology has provided new dimensions to entertainment. The term show business covers all aspects of entertainment including fashion industry. There are two main elements of entertainment (creative and business). The creative element includes actors, singers, dancers, writers, models, musicians and directors etc. The business element includes producers, managers, agents, advertisers, distributors, designers and editors etc.
After partition, many Muslim entertainers migrated to Pakistan and most of them settled in Lahore. In those days, the entertainment industry was limited to movies, theatres and radio. A few famous names of this era are Noor Jehan, Nisar Bazmi, Khawaja Pervaiz, Agha Talish, Darpan, Santosh Kumar, Nayyar Sultana, Shamim Ara, Ahmed Rushdi, Neelo and Aslam Pervaiz. These legends produced quality stuff suitable for watching with family. When Pakistan Television was launched, it gave new opportunities to artists. Radio Pakistan and Pakistan Television were under government control and there were no private radio and TV channels. The entertainers of old era did not have ample opportunity to utilize their talent in government controlled media.
Surprisingly, a military dictator (General Pervez Musharraf) is credited with promoting the freedom of speech and expression. During his rule, a number of licenses were issued to private TV channels. At the moment, several TV channels are contributing to entertainment stuff. HumTV, Geo Entertainment, ARY Digital, Urdu One, Geo Kahani, ARY Zindagi, A-Plus, Express Entertainment, Filmazia, TV One, ATV, PTV Home and Hum Sitaray are leading entertainment TV channels. Pakistani websites such as http://www.paktangle.com/ have dedicated sections for entertainment. In the past few years, these entertainment channels have produced quality dramas, short films, sitcoms, telefilms, movies, award shows, talent hunt shows, late night shows and fashion shows.
Dramas like Humsafar, Meri Zaat Zarra-e-Benishan, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Diyar-e-Dil, Sheh-e-Zaat, Meray Qatil Meray Dildar, Digest Writer, Mann Mayal and Dillagi have been worth watching. In the laughter arena, sitcom like Bulbulay, Shadi Ka Laddu, Kis Din Mera Viah Howay Ga, Double Trouble, Hum Sub Umeed Say Hain, Timmy G and S.H.E have made the audience smile and laugh. We have also seen great telefimls like Kitni Girhain Baqi Hain, Daam-e-Mohabbat, Uff Tera Jalwa, Resham Si Shaam, Aakhri Saans, Ishq For Sale, Ishq Wala Love Pyar Say Dartay Huay, Dil Tum Pay Aagya and Lady Boxer, Yoon Hum Miley, Gulabi Saree, Ishq For Sale, Behadd, Sitara Ko Mohabbat and Burns Road Ki Neelofar. Game shows like Jeeto Pakistan, Eidi Sub Kay Liye and Inaam Ghar have provided the audience suitable alternatives of Tariq Aziz Show. Morning shows like Jago Pakistan, Good Morning Pakistan, Morning with Farah, Nadia Khan Show, The Morning Show, Satrangi and Salam Zindagi have made our mornings pleasant and refreshing. Talent hunt shows like Pakistan Idol, Veet Super Model, Hero Ban’nay Ki Tarang, Pakistan Got Talent and Voice of Pakistan have identified talented individuals for the industry. Late night shows Hasb-e-Haal, Khabarnak, Khabardar and Mazak Raat make their audience smile before going to bed. Movies such as Khuda Kay Liye, Bol, Jawani Phir Nahi Ani, Manto, War, Wrong Number, Na Maloom Afraad, Karachi Say Lahore, Jaleebi and Mah-e-Mir have revived our film industry.

Homeschooling the Sick Child
Homeschooling your child gives you the flexibility to adjust schedules, especially if you are on the go. You don’t need to worry that your child will miss any school days. If they are sick, you can allow them to recuperate generously with time, and this is crucial to your children’s comfort and level of learning.
Depending on the severity of your child’s illness, you can gauge if they are still able to study while they are sick. If in case they really need to be sleeping the illness off, then you should allow them to.
Homeschooling brings you closer to your child and their needs. It allows you to take care of their overall health and focus on keeping them at the optimal learning state.
Exposing your child to viruses in regular schools doesn’t really help anyone in any way. There will be times when illnesses go unnoticed. In homeschooling, they don’t need to catch up on lessons missed since if they’re sick and they can’t study, and then there will be no lessons for that day. This saves you and your child the effort of repeating the lessons.
Things you might want to consider when you are homeschooling a sick child based on how severe the child’s illness is you need to gauge what pace, duration, and lessons they can possibly study during the illness. If your child is suffering from severe colds or gastroenteritis then it would be best to have them rest. If your child has the common cold or cough you might be able to teach them math or subjects they don’t need to do much oral recitations. You’re the teacher and parent, regardless of the severity you have the option to just let them rest for faster recovery. If you already know that they need to go potty several times in an hour, or they are coughing and sneezing ten times per minute don’t increase their suffering and this isn’t necessary.
Don’t pressure yourself and your child to push through study time when they are sick. It’s very important to be considerate towards their health. Don’t miss out on the advantages of having flexible study times and days. There will be times when your child gets sick and you should be really focusing on their health rather than their education at this time.
A child might associate study time with sick days and this might drive them to the point of resentment. Having someone continuously shoving work in your face when you are sick is really an awful feeling.
Have you ever had a boss at work that makes you come to work even if you are supposed to be at home resting as per your doctor’s advice? Is this really the message you want to convey to your student. Yes, there will be times when they need to be tough through illnesses and it’s up to you as the teacher to help them pick which those ones are without causing greater damage to their future health.
