Hunza Cultural Mela concluded in Islamabad

“Sharing and Caring”, the message!

PT Report

ISLAMABAD, January 30: The Hunza Cultural Mela came to an end today. People from Gojal, Shinaki and Kanjud – the three distinct parts of Hunza Valley, came together to celebrate diversity and entertain themselves, while also giving the younger, urbanized, generation a feel of the culture of their ancestors.

Speakers called for across the board unity among the three parts of Hunza Valley.

Singers, dancers and other artisans presented different shades of the region’s cultures.

“We need to ensure mutual respect and equality for materializing the nice-sounding ideas”, a youth present at the Mela told this scribe. He hailed the organizers for bringing the people together.

The event was held under the banner of Hunza Cultural Forum, an Islamabad based initiative working for revival of the region’s cultural identity.

Hundreds of women, men and children attended the program and spent quality time for two days.
