Lahore Punjabi Language Festival From 25th
The festival aims to celebrate the rich literary, linguistic and cultural heritage of the Punjabi community by mobilising children, youth, intellectuals and folk artistes. “The festival houses all forms of creative expressions – both traditional and modern,” said Mehdi, who is head of Lok Sujag, the Lahore-based organisers of the festival. The festival intends to facilitate dialogue on issues that concern the Punjabi community living on both sides of the India-Pakistan border. Children from 60 Pakistani and Indian schools will participate in various competitions at the festival. Cricket matches, live music, story telling sessions and traditional puppet shows are part of the five-day programme.
