A calligraphic exhibition by a group of women calligraphers was put on display at the Punjab Council of the Arts-Rawalpindi (PUCAR) on Tuesday.

The two-day exhibition, titled “Takhlique”, had been organised under the banner of Musawareen in collaboration with the council. It was inaugurated by PUCAR Director Waqar Ahmed while flanked by senior calligraphers Moyyad Fazil, Abdul Rehman Tabani and Muhammad Azeem Iqbal.
