Indo-Pak Peace Calendar 2019: Call for Paintings


Aaghaz-e-Dosti, an Indo-Pak friendship initiative of Mission Bhartiyam (India) and Hum Sab Aik Hain (Pakistan), 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.

The importance of the calendar is that it is a collection of shared dreams and hopes for friendship which we will be reminded of everyday. 

This will be the seventh calendar. We have received great response for this calendar in the last 6 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, Panipat and Surat in India, in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Toba Tek Singh in Pakistan, and and in Kyrgyz Republic. 

We invite paintings from students of India and Pakistan. Students can participate individually or through school. Indian and Pakistani students studying in other countries are also invited. Twelve paintings, six from each country, will be selected.
