Mughalia Tarz-e-Ishq – Promotion of Mughal Culture via Ramp Walk!

We live in a country that has forgotten its identity because of too much influence of western culture, and we feel proud to adopt western culture, instead of adopting our own traditional culture that having long history. In fact we feel shame in adopting our culture. If we see the history so how beautiful and vast our culture was, and Mughal culture is one of those. Indeed Mughal era was the golden era of subcontinent, their culture, traditions, customs, and so on. Each and everything was royal.

Pakistan Fashion Industry is playing major role in destroying norms and customs of the society by continue promoting Western Culture in the society. Just because of it, the society has started adopting western culture, and has forgotten their own golden culture. And unfortunately media is playing major role in promoting instead of stopping it.

To highlight this issue Kamran Javaid (famous for organizing Karachi Advertising Festival, Karachi Short Film Festival, and Motivational campaign IQbalance) took stand to promote Mughal Culture at the opening ceremony of IQbalance season 3. Event took place at Park Towers, Karachi. It was divided into 2 parts in which the first part was the opening ceremony of IQbalance season 3, while the second part was Mughalia Ramp Walk with the name “Mughalia Tarz-e-Ishq”

The aim of the event was to promote not only Mughal culture but also new talent including Designers, Models, Make-up artists, etc. Plus, it was also the trainer launching ceremony (TLC) so in the first part of the event, trainers were introduced in TLC, while in the second part Mughlia Tarz-e-Ishq took place.

The event was attended by bloggers, photographers, press, media, and socialites among others. Although the TLC couldn’t brought the attention of attendees but the Mughlia Tarz-e-Ishq capture the hearts of audience, and in between the performance of very talented singer Syed Hassaan was trying to keep the energy level high. Although he’s new in the industry but his voice will soon make him the popular singer in the field of Music industry.

Mughalia Ramp walk was divided into 3 parts. In first part story of Salim/Anarkali and Jahanghir/Noor Jahan, in second part Nawabi culture and Umra-o-Jahan, while in third part story of Joda Akbar was shown with ramp walk of models.

While talking about the event Kamran Javaid said,
In our industry, we’re promoting western culture. So, someone has to take stand to promote Eastern culture, and I tried my best to introduce Mughia Tarz-e-Ishq for promotion of eastern culture.

Arif Dawood (Director of the Mughlia Tarz-e-Ishq) revealed,
The aim of the show is not only providing entertainment but also providing platform to all those designers who don’t get a chance to showcase their collection on renowned platforms.

It is such a great step by Mr. Kamran Javiad to promote eastern culture, and we should highly appreciate his efforts. This kind of shows should be held in each city of Pakistan, and media should give it good coverage for the betterment of society.

Here are few pictures from the event.

Rise & Fall of Pakistan Drama Industry – PDI

There was a time when Pakistani dramas were considered as the best dramas of sub-continent. Pakistan Drama Industry (PDI) started in 1960s and since the beginning of television, PTV was the only channel to produced Pakistani dramas, and the 1st ever super hit drama was “Khuda Ki Basti” which went on air on PTV in 1969.

After that many super hit dramas were produced including 50-50, Alif Noon, Sona Chandi, Aangan Tehra, Ankahi, Dhoop Kinare, Sunehray Din, and Alpha Bravo Charlie among others.

Surely, it was the rise of PDI, and the golden era of PTV that produced such super hit dramas which made records in the history of Pakistan. But unfortunately, PDI became commercialized after 1990s; and not only forget to produced such quality dramas, but also lost their level at which they were during the decades of 1970s, 80s, & 90s.

It was the downfall of our industry. But soon PEMRA issued licenses to many private channels, and the channels took responsibility to get theirs level back.

And finally HUM TV took one step forward to bring back PDI at their rise. And produced such amazing dramas which not only played a major role to bring our industry level back at rise but also made new records. Humsafar, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Dastaan, Mera Naseeb, Kankar, Durr e Shehwar, and Dil e Muztar were the dramas which set new records in the drama history of our country.

Now a days, Pakistani dramas are being produced on not only typical themes but also promoting Indian culture in our dramas. And producers are crossing all the limits for the sake of TRPs by broadcasting bold scenes, and adopting Western & Indian culture etc. It seems our industry is going to suffer downfall once again.

If our industry stop showing Indian culture in our dramas, and start promoting our own culture, then our industry will not go at rise but also our culture will be highly promoted across the world.
