The modern man direly needs to avowedly commit to peace, hope, affection and determination; as he has been unfortunately, wedded to frustration, disappointment, hopelessness and defect. Dale Carnegie expressed his life’s experience, “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”
National Institute of Pakistan Studies (NIPS), National Institute of Psychology (NIP) and Area Studies department of Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad underwent organizing a Funfair Gala here at the University on November 14th, 2012. Head of the departmental societies tended for taking the responsibility of requisite and mandatory arrangements. Gala had been set including song dedication, personality contest, refreshment stalls, handicrafts and garments, and stalls relating studies.
The Gala provided an opportunity to the keen affectionate of music by their participation in “singing competition.” Evidently, dozens of young participants across the University chipped in and kept the assembled spectators entertained with their so-called pleasant and funny sounds except some good fellows who brilliantly performed with their melody sounds.
The folk songs and cultural dances of a nation are its spiritual self portrait. Interestingly, not merely the new and pop songs got the attention of the audience but also the folk songs of all communities, i.e. Balochi, Pashto, Punjabi, Saraiki, Sindhi, and Gilgit Baltistan. Indeed, this robust collection of folk songs and cultural dances brought a great fervor and gusto among all.
The gala continued till late evening and helped the terror hit people forgetting their miseries at least for some hours and enjoy.
