Lok Mela by Lok Virsa

The National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage, which is more commonly known as Lok Virsa, is going to organize an annual 10-day Folk Festival with the name of Lok Mela from 1st April 2016. This event would take place at the Lok Virsa Complex at Garden Avenue in Shakarparian. The event is majorly organized to continue with the festivities of Nouroz.

Similar to Nouroz’s celebrations, it showcases colors and positive anticipations for the year to come. Lok Mela would particularly celebrate artisans, folk artists, folk musicians and other performances, which are an integral part of Pakistani rural society.

There are art and cultural activities, which take place in the rural areas of Pakistan. These activities are not known by the common people living in big cities. Festivals like Lok Mela are an important means to make sure that people from big cities have knowledge about these activities. Though people cannot be present at rural villages to celebrate those festivities always but they can celebrate once in a while to know the feel of it!

Through active participation of people in these events, they can become a symbol of cultural diversity in Pakistan. Events like these should be covered by media more often to portray the positive image of Pakistan in rest of the world. Folk music and cultural poems have the power to make every person go into the realm of beauty. This folk realm is only full of beautiful nature and humanity.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
