“Tilsim-e-Hoshraba” Dastaan Goi

Hassan Zuberi, a friend, emailed about TCF’s recent plan to held this event of “Datsaan Goi” and thought about sharing it with oither Karachiites.Let us(those who can afford) help TCF in educating the children of Pakistan.

Storytelling (Dastaan goi) is the ancient art of conveying events in words, images, and sounds – an art most of us are not aware of in today’s age of automation and speed. It is the medium, by which stories have been shared since time immemorial and have been a means of entertainment, education and the preservation of culture.


Now Karachiites have a chance to capture some enchanting moments through an evening celebrating the spirit of storytelling. STCF (Supporters of The Citizens Foundation), a group of volunteers for The Citizens Foundation, has always strived to make all of its fundraisers exciting ventures, exploring new ideas and themes. This year, STCF has arranged a beautiful evening, filled with the magic of Dastaan goi, on the 4th of April at FTC Auditorium. The event has been organized to raise funds for the nation-wide Education Program of TCF for less-privileged children across Pakistan.

A group of talented young performers from India, Mahmud Farooqui, Danish Hussain and Anousha Rizvi, who have revived this rare art form by presenting shows to packed houses in Dehli, Mumbai and Lucknow, have graciously accepted the invitation to perform in Pakistan. Let this magical event take you back to the make-believe world of magical realms and fakirs, of tender descriptions of love, of evil kings and vanquished demons and jinns.

By your participation, you will be assisting STCF in raising funds for 344 TCF school units educating over 40,000 students in 42 locations, all over Pakistan. Tickets are available at FTC for Rs. 2,500 per person.

    Those who are in US/Canada should find a person working in companies (given on the web page)to double their donations. http://www.tcfusa.org/giftmatch.html
