Sabeen Mehmood & Creative Karachi Festival

Sabeen Mehmood, the founder of The Second Floor (T2F) and one of the brightest flowers in the most beautiful garden of Pakistan’s ideology seemed blooming even after death on 24th April, 2016 at Creative Karachi Festival (CKF).

T2F is like a heaven to all the creative angels of Karachi. On this day, Sabeen’s mother planted an Amaltas tree at the exact spot where her daughter was shot to symbolize hope. She believed that her daughter is still alive in the hope and spirit of all the creative people looking forward for a better change.

Creative Karachi Festival elevated the idea of Sabeen, which was truly about art and freedom. The show gave an opportunity to all the people in Karachi, to come out and display all their art and craft talents. There were too many start-up art franchises and products being displayed. Families, kids and youngsters gathered to have a look at all the items on display and remember Sabeen with true sentiments. As Sabeen said that the show must go on!

All the people, who knew Sabeen by any means, shed tears of both grief and joy at the same. Artists from India also tweeted their memories and love for Sabeen. Giving Sabeen the Tribute, Zoha Jabbar mentioned how the killers of Sabeen stand out as fools because something they thought would die with Sabeen is still alive with such intensity. It is not her death, which should be mourned but her life to be celebrated!

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.
