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.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

Launch Party:

Every Potterhead were eagerly waiting for 31st July 2016, why ? July 31st is Harry Potter’s birthday! It is also J.K. Rowling’s birthday and the release date of the new Potter book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It is the 8th Harry Potter book came out after 9 years. I was super excited.

Liberty Books and Dolmen Mall had organized the Launch Party for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Dolmen Mall, Clifton. I reached at the launch party at 10:30am and the ground floor was filled with muggles, wizards and witches. People were dressed up as the Severus Snape, Harry Potter and Bellatrix Lestrange. I’ve seen long queues at the HP themed photo booth and at the Liberty Books stall to get the new book. I waited till 2pm just to get my book.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child review

The book I’ve been waiting for 9yrs

The book is a two-part stage play written by Jack Thorne based on an original new story by Thorne, J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. The story is set nineteen years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and follows Harry Potter who is now a Ministry of Magic employee, and his younger son Albus Severus Potter.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child review

Its a script not a novel

I was so excited that I read it within two hours coz I couldn’t put it down. Those who bought it without realizing it is a script should read the product description more carefully, it is not the fault of the author, it was clearly advertised as a script. I am delighted to say that the magic within the script was very real and soared way above my, very high, expectations. I loved the twists and turns and call backs. There are so many surprises in the book with few new characters. The book will make you want to go see the play – so in a sense it’s a wordy trailer that you’re actually paying for. I feel like a child again, reading the series for the first time.

    For any Harry Potter fan this is a must read. Brings back memories of reading my way through the first seven books. I really want to see that play on stage in Pakistan.

My Rating: 4/5
