Pakistan has a diversified culture and its people have one of the oldest cultures and civilisations, Ambassador of Japan Takashi Kurai said at the launching ceremony of a book by Lok Virsa Executive Director Dr Fouzia Saeed. He said that the book, Folk Heritage of Pakistan, gave historical linkages, which was beautifully done. It is a richly illustrated book with deep reading stuff about all positive aspects of Pakistan. It is an anthology of highly researched articles edited by Executive Director Lok Virsa, a PhD scholar chiefly known for her books Taboo and Working with Sharks. The book had touched almost all aspects of life of a highly diversified nation on the western fringes of South Asia. ‘Such a book was extremely required that we can present to foreigners who generally, and quite misleadingly, knew all sensational things about Pakistan which associates it with extremism, but don’t know how rich and diversified our society really is, said Dr. Fouzia Saeed.
