Eastview Estate

where science meets art

is an aesthetic of attitude, behavior, comportment, appearance and style, influenced by and a product of the Zeitgeist. Because of the varied and changing connotations of cool, as well its subjective nature, the word has no single meaning. It has associations of composure and self-control (cf. the OED definition) and often is used as an expression of admiration or approval.

There is cool, then there is Uber-Cool this clip of Zinda Laash dancing in the 1967 horror film “Dracula in Pakistan” is right up there. Zinda Laash was the Urdu version of Audrey Hepburn this too cool for school dance was all the rage in the streets of Pakistan, and demonstrates that the west does not have a mortgage on cool!
