HUM Network Limited has announced Women Leaders Award, an initiative to honour and pay tribute to women achievers from Pakistan and abroad. The event will be held on February 19, 2020 at the Governor House, Karachi, which will be attended by President Islamic Republic of Pakistan Dr Arif Alvi.
The announcement was made during a press conference by Sultana Siddiqui, President HUM Network who is also a women’s rights advocate and social activist. She was accompanied by the advisory committee members of HWLA Ameena Saiyid, Rehana Hakim, Amin Hashwani and Dr Huma Baqai.
Speaking on the occasion Sultana Siddiqui said, “Women in Pakistan are not celebrated the way they should be considering their contributions and achievements. HWLA is an effort to project these role models and I would like to thank my esteemed advisory committee, our sponsors and Governor Sindh for making it possible.”
“These awards are being presented to acknowledge and recognize the contributions made by women in Pakistan and abroad to inspire the youth who are waiting in the wings and who can emulate these role models and, in the process, present the real image of Pakistan to the world,” said Ameena Saiyid.
“I am really delighted to be part of this initiative which intends to celebrate and honour women who have made a mark in life and whose stories are very inspiring,” said Rehan Hakim.
“We have a very young population and it is essential to establish role models with diversity and characteristics such as courage and resilience that helps make one successful in life,” said Amin Hashwani.
“Every woman has to put up a fight to achieve success in life. HWLA is an attempt to highlight and present the courage and determination of women achievers to the world and is a huge initiative to inspire young women,” said Dr Huma Baqai.
HUM Women Leaders Award will be held annually and televised on International Women’s Day on HUM globally. HWLA aims to recognize and honour the contributions and achievements of iconic women from Pakistan and around the world who are change makers in their respective fields and a symbol and source of hope, courage, determination and inspiration for women across the globe. These iconic women are mentors and role models for girls who aspire to be achievers. The aim of these awards is to encourage women to think big and continue the legacy of HUM Network which has always advocated empowerment of women through its content.

‘Tere Saath’- a ballad of love and heartbreak
Abdullah Qureshi is back with another superb single, which is sure to become your favorite song of this season. The single titled ‘Tere Saath’ is Qureshi’s first collaboration with renowned music producer Eahab Akhtar. The song has been sung and penned by both the artists while Akhtar has composed and produced the music.
The song was recorded over two days after Qureshi got a call from Akhtar to give a listen to the new track that he had made. Things came together from that point on, and here we are with a beautiful composition that is fun, quirky, sad, and impactful at the same time.
The song comes as a breather of fresh air in the current times when everyone is confined to their houses because of the global pandemic. The song, written in English and Urdu, is a fusion of contemporary and pop music. It’s a happy-sad song, something that hasn’t been done before.
The song is about a lover asking his beloved the age-old question that people usually ask in love, “How could you do this to me?” The lover reminisces about the dreams he had for them, but they could never be fulfilled. He says there isn’t anything left to be said between the two of them and that things happen in life. According to him, the world is full of liars. That is why he wants to speak the truth because he isn’t like others. All of that is said through an upbeat melody that is sure to get you grooving.
The overall feel of the song is very western but retains its flavor and soul with the use of simple yet powerful lyrics in Urdu. The arrangement of the song is equally unique with the use of instruments such as guitar, drums, and techno beats that transform you into a musical world.
