The Lok Virsa (National Institute of Folk & Traditional Heritage) has launched its official website (www.lokvirsa.org.pk).
A statment said that website provides up-to-date information on Lok Virsa’s activities, programmes and functions as well as its products, including books, CDs, DVDs, cassettes, cultural documentaries, documented dramas and full-length feature films produced by Lok Virsa, including ‘Akhri Geet’ and ‘Rohi Dhoop Jali’.
The website also provides a virtual tour of the Heritage Museum at Shakarparian with information on almost all creative three-dimensional cultural displays, spreading over an area of 60,000 square feet.
In his opening remarks, Lok Virsa Executive Director Khalid Javaid explained the salient features of the website which would make public access easy to all activities and products of Lok Virsa. “The website provides information on history, creation, structure and functioning of Lok Virsa as a representative cultural body in the capital city, having a legal statutory status,” he said.
On a query about the maintenance and updating of the website, the executive director said that Lok Virsa has recently created a full-fledged Public Relations (PR) Section, which is handling special visits, special programmes, protocol and all public related matters in a smooth and efficient manner. “Special arrangement has also been made under the PR Section to ensure that the Lok Virsa website is maintained and updated on a day-to-day basis,” he added.
