Thatta Kedona

Culture is a Basic Need

Quality of Life Competition 2013

 
Another beautiful tradition that is part of Thatta Ghulamka Dheroka life is quality of life competition held each year under the preservation of cultural heritages program since 2000 jointly by village NGO AFA, SPARC, FPAC and DGFK. Each year prizes are awarded to house owners for specially interesting details on mud buildings and taking good care of their own homes. This has been a great way to keep the environment of the village lively and traditional. The program was redesigned in 2009 and certain mud houses in the village were selected to receive financial help, through donations from friendly architects, for repairs after two extended monsoon rain periods. This year Professor Mansoor Durrani (from Punjab University) was the chief guest in the award ceremony. Here are the images from award ceremony this year:
