No one can deny the importance and significance of the Sindh Festival and the Youth Festival in both Punjab and Sindh. It is great to see that the provinces arranged such festivals in their own ways. They promote love, peace, cultural values, our past and are also a source of finding talent from among our youth. They have helped greatly in showing the world a soft image of our country in an atmosphere filled with pain, destruction and terrorism. I would suggest that such festivities should be held on a federal level and a combined cultural show would bind the country together and bring us closer to each other. This will further promote unity, cooperation and brotherhood among people of all provinces and also portray a global image of an integrated nation.
