Independence Day Celebrations at Dolmen Malls

Dolmen Mall, Pakistan’s first international standard mall, is famous for being at the forefront of every major national celebration. With every event, they have continued to raise the bar when it comes to family entertainment and shopping in Karachi.

As our Independence Day approaches, we see the city changing itself to represent the colors of Pakistan, and Dolmen did not stay behind in giving its visitors a flavor of patriotism. This year, their theme, ‘Dolmen loves Pakistan’, was weaved around the concept of #HamariPehchan aimed at giving people a chance to celebrate Pakistan’s identity. Spanning across all three malls, namely Dolmen Mall Clifton, Dolman Mall Tariq Road and Dolmen Mall Hyderi, the event kicked off on 12th of August 2016.

“Living in a time where there is so much uncertainty and negativity surrounding our identity as a nation, we wanted to celebrate the achievements and entertainment aspects of Pakistan which we are known for. These things are relatable to the older as well as the younger generation of this country and they need to be celebrated. This is what makes us proud as Pakistanis,” said Anum Nadeem, Marketing Head of the Dolmen Group at the event.

A weekend worth of activities were executed in all its patriotic glamour and glory. For this, the mall was draped in shades of greens and whites. The walkways saw magnificent replicas of the country’s monuments. From live murals of national heroes to specially dressed guards standing and saluting the customers, the entire mall gave off 14th August vibes. The main atrium was designed to take the mall-goers on a photographic journey through Pakistan and its rich culture. Adding to the desi feel, a dhaaba was set up by Chai Wala offering fresh parathas and chai for all those craving for a cup of tea, Pakistan’s undisputed favorite drink. Folk music and a special Azadi Bazaar selling flags, badges, and other patriotic merchandise set the right mood to the three-day event.

Raise the Flag

To mark the eve of Independence Day, a grandiose performance by Sounds of Kolachi dazzled the audience. The soulful music melted into the beautiful notes of our National Anthem at precisely 12 AM, midst a shower of confetti while the guards raised the flag and saluted. The moment was breathtakingly beautiful.

On the same night, visitors at Dolmen Mall Tariq Road were enthralled to find Noori performing live and did not shy away from fully enjoying patriotic beats.

On the digital front, an instagram competition was hosted, allowing amateur photographers to showcase their talent. Top three photographs were selected and awarded with prizes. More prizes awaited all those who visited Dolmen wearing green. Shoppers and visitors were, thus, pleasantly surprised at various occasions.

KHIBookSwap – Story so far

The Beginning:

I had a dream that there should be a book club where readers from twitter should gather and share their love for the books. Back in August, 2014 that dream became reality thanks to Ifrah Waqar. Together we made Pakistan’s first ever Book-Swapping Book Club called KHIBookSwap. We had our first meeting in August with only three members and now we have 130 members at our Facebook Group.

How it works:

Every month we decide and announced theme for our meetup. It could be ‘Genre of the Month’ or ‘Book of the Month’. Then we meet and discuss it accordingly and swap books at the end of our meeting. In between we do different activities like Book Shopping or Blind Date with a Book.

Projects:

Currently there are three projects in progress. There is an instagram hash-tag series #KBSKitabReview where our members upload a book cover photo which they’ve finished recently on instagram with a small review and its rating out of 5. Recently I started two new projects Word Inc. and KBSSnailMail.

Word Inc. is a yearly online magazine where I include selected prose and poetry shared by our members via email. If you want to be part of it, kindly share your prose or poetry at khibookswap@gmail.com. First issue can be read here.

KBSSnailMail is a project where I combine snail mail with book swap, rules for this project can be found here.

Alhamdulillah! Now we have completed 2 years. In these years we have become a family, where we shared our favorite quotes and books, explored different genres and celebrate birthdays together. It was not possible without my partner in crime Ifrah . . . who always listened to me every time and gave suggestions to make our book club better and our regular members who are always present at our meetups shared their reviews and filled it with so much laughter and unforgettable memories.

If you want to become a part of our book club you can join us here.

United for Healthier Kids by Nestlé Pakistan

Do you know 1 out of 3 children are iron deficient in Pakistan ? We are the third unhealthy nation in the world. Recently Nestlé Pakistan held a sneak peak of the United for Healthier Kids movement for bloggers from Karachi. The movement aims to instill healthier habits in children.  It was launched at an event in Islamabad where various partners came together to pledge “behtarkal, aaj se” – a better future for Pakistan’s children.

 

United for Healthier Kids is a behavior change movement for children aged 3-12 years, where partners such as Nestlé Pakistan, Ministry of Planning, Development and Reform, Lahore Grammar School, Jang Media Group, Geo Network, Service Sales Corporation, Silver Oaks School and Parwaan, among others. The movement aims to help parents establish healthier eating, drinking, and lifestyle habits in children through game-changing education and fun ideas to inspire action and influence behavior.

The nutritional and health conditions in Pakistan have reached an alarming level over the past decade. Currently, Pakistan has the third highest number of children suffering from stunted growth; 43.7% of the total children under the age of 5 suffer from it. 15.1% are wasted and 31.5% are found to be underweight.

The United for Healthier Kids movement will work closely with its partner organizations to address three major behaviors – Move More Sit Less, Choose to Drink Water and Choose Nutritiously Varied Food Options – by not only creating awareness and educating parents’ on different obstacles but also outlining proposed solutions for raising healthier kids.

Misbah Push Up challenge
