Sindh is one of the provinces of Pakistan. It has importance because of its historical heritages, poets, Sufi singers, art, literature, and architecture among others. The culture of the Sindh is one of the traditional, and most colourful culture and people of the Sindh love their culture from their heart and soul.
The first-ever Sindh Literature Festival (SLF) was held on 4th to 6th November in Karachi. The most important reason for organizing this festival was to promote Sindhi Culture, Sindhi Language, and to attract the Sindhi people throughout the country.
The three-day festival was formally inaugurated when Sufi singer Abida Parveen cut a ribbon alongside SLF chairperson Abdullah Hussain Haroon.
The three days festival was truly amazing, knowledgeable, interactive, and worth attending. It was divided into sessions i.e. bookstalls, exhibition area, and food area among others.
When Abida Parveen went on stage and gave her soulful performance, the audience became crazy. From beginning to end, her performance grabbed the hearts of the audience.
The second day of the festival included Book Launching session by Sindhi writers, Speaking session on different topics i.e. Literary and Intellectual tendencies of contemporary Sindhi literature, the economic development in Sindh: Vision and Mystery, Languages in a Globalizing World, Journalism: New trends, Impact of visual media on society, etc. Mushaairo session and Music session. In which Natasha Baig gave her energetic performance, which made youth energetic, and they started dancing.
