She also said that the literary and Cultural environment will boost the interest of people into the dusted glory of Sindhi culture, and you will find out the new life into the literary circles of Sindh after this event.
She urged the general public and invited them to be a part of this festival and made this effort successful so that this event will be organized on annual basis.
The Sindhi Literature and Cultural Festival will be held from 8th May to 10th May 2015 at Arts Council, Karachi with free entry for general public.
