Many commended the US consulate for their initiative, applauding the women featured in the video.

Last year, the Consulate shared fun-filled images of a dholki thrown for the consulate employees by their Pakistani colleagues.

The images showed the staff and friends enjoying local traditions of a Pakistani ‘mehndi’ complete with bangles, singing and dancing at a site decorated in traditional Pakistani style canopies, carpets and flowers specifically marigolds.
