There was also a Film Festival featuring international films from 6 continents, a Speaker’s corner for author meet and greet, book signings, cultural performances and a Qawwali Night.
جہان تازہ کي افکار تازہ سے ہے نمود
کہ سنگ و خشت سے ہوتے نہيں جہاں پيدا
New worlds derive their pomp from thoughts quite fresh and new
From stones and bricks a world was neither built nor grew
