When I joined Lok Virsa, about a year and a half ago, we only had employees from Punjab and Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa. Over the last year I have tried hard to search for young candidates to be inducted from other province. To get good candidates from Balochistan has been a challenge as it is difficult to get people to move to Islamabad on such low renumeration, However, I am happy to share that we now have six young professionals from Balochistan at Lok Virsa, providing thier services for various jobs.
Abdullah Baloch, the head of the Culture Department, Balochistan Government, visted us yesterday and was so happy when I introduced him to these young professionals. He said, “This was a dream for me. I had been associated with Lok virsa for over three decades and always wanted to see bright people from Balochistan here and now it has come true.” He thanked me for being true to my claim that Balochistan and GB were my priority. I am sharing a picture of Abdullah Baloch with young professionals from Balochistan who are providing thier services as internal auditor, PRO, store keeper of the museum, Media program executive, Electrical Engineer and ethnomusicologist.
I would also like to share that we have 5 young professionals from GB who are providing thier services to Lok Virsa as head of Media, head of accounts, cameraman and two in the Museum. This diversity is already changing the environment of the Institute and influencing, positively, the programs of lok virsa. I strongly beleive that for it to be a true ‘National’ Institute, it has to have the voices of all the provinces. We continue to work on achieving that balance!
Lok Virsa in its effort to promote folk music and bring back the creative space to our community, Lok Virsa announces its music classes schedule. You are requested to be a part of this effort and take time out to learn an instrument or have your children learn a musical instrument. That will be the best gift you can give to your children.
Most of the classes will be a three-month course. Therefore, it is better to register from the beginning and go until the end. We will however be flexible in the first month to accommodate people.
