ISLAMABAD: With little over a month left to the 70th independence day celebrations, leading art and cultural organisations in the capital have started preparations for the big day.

In this regards, the PNCA, the National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage (Lok Virsa), Pakistan Academy of Letters and Nazaria-e-Pakistan Council will hold events engaging the youth in various activities such as tableau, skits, songs competitions and folk dances.

The National Puppet Theater of PNCA will also colour perform a show on the theme of the Independence Day. Colourful puppets will portray the history of the Pakistan movement in the form of stories.

The week-long programmes would focus on the freedom movement, heroes of the Pakistan movement and the rich culture and traditions of Pakistan through performing arts.

Apart from depicting the culture and traditions of the country, the shows would also educate the youth regarding the struggle of freedom fighters through soft expressions of art, said an official of the PNCA.
