Sind Festival at Park Towers (till 6th November)

Last night, after Uzi’s seminar at T2F, I headed off to Park Towers to buy my wife a (belated) birthday gift. On reaching there, I found out that it is the venue for a Sind Festival being held till the 6th of November. It looked pretty interesting. There’s a stage with local performers singing folk and traditional songs of Sind, some stalls selling Sindhi mithais, Sindhi books, even the bangles that cover your whole arm. One of the best stalls is a potter’s stall where the potter was helping a cute little kid make his own bowl. All in all, something worth commending. Do go there, and buy something to support the local craftsmen.

Since pictures are worth a thousand words, there’s a few thousand words for the readers after the jump.

    How interesting! I wonder why the ‘festival’ has been so poorly marketed…

    Khurram, how about a post on Urooj’s event at T2F for those of us unfortunate not able to attend?

    Thanks for sharing Khurram, like all standard Mall enviornment, Park Towers always have something going on … but never propely publicised.

    I have experienced there from Car launchs to book launchs and from fun events to travel related fairs.

    I hope the Prime Management Services (the parent organisation of Park Towers) need to manage there services primely.

    On a pvt note: So bad … to buy the gift so late.

    Beautiful Sindh of beautiful people :)

    This is what culture is about. More power to ethnic diversity and cultural understanding and appeciation.

    Khurram, I too would like to request to read a few words that you may have about the T2F event that you attended. Im sure myself, along with many others that were unable to attend for many reasons, would really appreciate it. Only if you’re up for it though, no pressure. Thank you.
