Build­ing the na­tional spirit

Slogan - - EVENT - – S.F.

Two days of a cul­tural fes­ti­val and colour­ful de­pic­tion of arts, crafts, mu­sic, stage per­for­mances, drama, dance, qawalis, theatre and food de­scribe the Youth Arts and Lit­er­ary Ex­hi­bi­tion 2015 held in Karachi.

Or­ga­nized by the Lit­er­ary So­ci­ety of the In­sti­tute of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Anti Coun­ter­feit and In­fringe­ment Fo­rum (ACIF), the event cel­e­brated Pak­istan Day on March 22 and 23. The fes­ti­val was held at the Al­liance Fran­caise in Karachi.

Vis­i­tors came from dif­fer­ent walks of life. Ty­ing up with the Pak­istan Day, the na­tional spirit at the fes­ti­val was quite vis­i­ble and was man­i­fest in the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties.

The first day, March 22, opened with dance per­for­mances and was fol­lowed by a po­etry com­pe­ti­tion. The fes­ti­val then moved on to the ex­hi­bi­tion gallery and an ex­clu­sive screen­ing of Shoaib Man­soor’s Bol.

A panel dis­cus­sion was mod­er­ated by Dr. Framji Min­walla which fo­cused on the topic, ‘Struck Be­tween Grow­ing Tech­nol­ogy and Poverty: In­fring­ing Art And Lit­er­a­ture, Bad or Not.’ An­other panel dis­cus­sion was themed on ‘Pi­rated Designer Wear - Lawn Prints Mak­ing Fash­ion Af­ford­able The Only So­lu­tion‘.

The sec­ond day fea­tured Jin­nah. This was fol­lowed by an ex­hi­bi­tion and a mushaira.

Such ini­tia­tives build the na­tional cul­tural spirit and the IBA pulled to­gether en­thu­si­as­tic peo­ple at the lit­er­ary and theatre fes­ti­val.
