SAI Anniversary Program
Come and Join us in ‘Pakistan Celebrations’
In continuation of the 50 years celebrations of the SAI, we are holding two days Pakistan Celebrations on 24th and
25th of May 2012. There will be lot of activities as variety of programmes has been planned for these two days.
In the academic session scholars will elaborate upon the contemporary Pakistan. Pakistan’s role in the war upon terror and its repercussions on the region will also be discussed. The students and faculty of the SAI, working on Pakistan will also speak briefly about their projects on Pakistan. Moreover, a fascinating documentary would be shown at the occasion to show the real beauty of the country which remained special attraction for the tourists for decades and whose image unfortunately have been tarnished by the rising tide of militancy in the area. This will be followed by an elegant slide presentation by one of the prominent scholars of the SAI working on the Northern areas of Pakistan.
The celebrations also include a charming cultural evening depicting the cultural diversity of Pakistan which is an abode of various cultures and civilisations. For this special event a Pakistani cultural troupe has been invited who will enthral the audience by their performance in presenting the lovely Pakistani songs and dances. Needless to say, the participants would be served with delicious Pakistani delicacies throughout the celebrations.
