Hamara Karachi Festival kicks off tomorrow

Karachi is home to many different people and cultures for the past many years now and the festival will focus on their traditional aspects. The festival has been planned in such a way that the less privileged people of the city will also be able to avail the luxuries and facilities that have been limited to the privileged class, said Jalil. She added that above all, the festival will provide a unique opportunity to create harmony amongst different religious schools and religious sects including non-Muslims.
The events of the previous festivals included Qawwalis, debate competitions, Mushaairas, sea carnivals, free boat rides, painting contests, exhibitions of historical documents and manuscripts, flower shows, visits to historical buildings and monuments in the city and particularly special shows for women and children, added Jalil.

“Hamara Karachi Festival is not for the government but in fact it is being held for the entertainment and benefit of the people and I am confident that it will create a sense of ownership in the people,” said Jalil.
This year, the Hamara Karachi Festival will be celebrated in such a way that the financial liabilities will be met by the corporate sector and multi-national companies, she said.
In order to provide physical ease and mental calm to the people of the city, it is equally important that efforts should be made to promote healthy recreational and cultural activities along with taking corrective measures for the city’s infrastructure.

    On thee aft Scotland chows her cood,
    In souple scones, the wale o’food!
    Or tumblin in the boiling flood
    Wi’ kail an’ beef;
    But when thou pours thy strong heart’s blood,
    There thou shines chief.

    Food fills the wame, an’ keeps us leevin;
    Tho’ life’s a gift no worth receivin,
    When heavy-dragg’d wi’ pine an’ grievin;
    But, oil’d by thee,
    The wheels o’ life gae down-hill, scrievin,
    Wi’ rattlin glee.

    Castrating those who talk non-sense is my hobby…and shauq and hobby both these words have the same meaning, genius.

  22. odin on March 8th, 2009 @ 8:07 pm


    yeahan pheir wohi problem hai…sir ya madame?

    Odin is the supreme god,not goddess, of the Norse mythology, so there.

    yeah apna lucknow waley…marsi(pardon my french)oun kay alawa bhi kuch banana jantey hain…amazing!

    marsia banaya nahin jata wasiq sahib, parha jata he. or sab ko ilm he ke lucknawi tehzeeb o tamaddun, adab o adaab, rasm o riwaaj, nafasat o nazakat hi ki waja se urdu bolney walon ki india or pakistan men kuch izzat he. warna sab ko or hum ko bhi haqiqat ka ilm he.

    Btw, yeah dehliwaley apni bahoun ko aksar "raw khel" keh kar (piyar se) pukartey hain….iss ka muzakar (feminist singular) kya hota hai…?

    wasiq sahi, muzak’kar asal men masculine ko kaha jaata he. wesey hamarey ilm meN nahiN ke dilli waley apni bahoo’oN ko raakhel keh ke bulatey heN. jahaN tak hamari kam ilmi ka ta’aluq he raa’khel asal meN kisi shaadi-suhda mard ki lover ko kaha jata he. Hope it helps.

    Btw, yeah dehliwaley apni bahoun ko aksar "raw khel" keh kar (piyar se) pukartey hain….iss ka muzakar (feminist singular) kya hota hai…?
