The Lahore Arts Council is set to re-launch the monthly literary and cultural sessions of “Kuch Yaadain, Kuch Baatain” and “Roshan Sitaray” online to entertain and educate the audience.
A meeting was held at Alhamra Art Centre on Tuesday to discuss the re-launch of these programmes.
On the occasion, Lahore Arts Council Board of Governors Chairperson Moneeza Hashmi said: “From the very beginning, the purpose of these programmes has been to pay homage to the legends and to educate our young generation. Through these sessions, prominent personalities and legendary figures will share with the audience the personal and professional experiences of their lives.”
She said the other reason to re-launch these series was that due to Covid, not only physical, but also mental health of people had been severely affected, which is a wake-up call for everyone.
“That is why we are resuming these sessions online to improve the mental state of the people because we all know that a healthy mind is the guarantor of a healthy body and life,” she maintained.
LAC Executive Director Saman Rai claimed that people of all ages and from different walks of life were taking immense interest in both programmes.
“We are going to release them online so that people can get safe and positive entertainment while sitting at their homes.”
