A rare opportunity... By Zahid

10 February, 2014

The Punjab government has provided an excellent opportunity to people in the form of the Punjab Youth Festival. The country was craving for something different, divergent, and sublime. The festival has provided that. The participation was encouraging as if people were waiting for the break. The number of attendance and records has improved on last year's festival.

Last year 24 world records had been set, this year the number might exceed 100. The success of the festival will send a positive image of Pakistan abroad. The festival is not only about sports, it is about culture, peace and brotherhood. It is such events that provide people from different backgrounds and genre a chance to meet, mingle and encounter each other. Even the mentally challenged and prisoners have been made part of the festival. Similarly women in large numbers participated in the event.

Therefore it was an occasion for everyone to celebrate. Pakistan is surrounded by multiple crises and we cannot meet these challenges without an active participation of the youth as a catalyst of change.
