Announcement: Aaghaz-e-Dosti Invites Paintings for 8th Indo-Pak Peace Calendar

Aaghaz-e-Dosti, an Indo-Pak friendship initiative launches an Indo-Pak Peace calendar every year. This calendar is a collection of selected paintings of school students from Pakistan and India and is launched along with a seminar in several cities in both countries. It also carries messages from renowned personalities working on the issue from both the countries.

This will be the 8th calendar. We have received great response for this calendar in the last 7 years. We have received paintings from students and schools in different cities of India and Pakistan and from non-resident Indians and Pakistanis. The calendars have been launched in Delhi, Dehradun, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Mumbai, Nashik, Panipat and Surat in India, in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Toba Tek Singh in Pakistan, and in Kyrgyz Republic, USA and Sweden.
