Swat Smiles Again

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani inaugurated a three-day photographic exhibition titled ‘Swat Smiles Again’ at Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA), Islamabad, on Saturday, May 29, 2010.  Some 12 local photographers had put on display over 300 photographs to showcase the revival of life in war-ravaged area of Swat. The exhibition reminded the acts how security forces of the country backed by the people of Pakistan has brought back smiles on the faces of the people of Swat. It was also a tribute to the resilience of the people of Swat and their sacrifices that they offered in a tough fight against terrorism. “Swat Smiles Again”… three very short words, but today these are the most powerful ones. Because these reflect the resolve and commitment of a country, its armed forces and its people to win back peace and tranquility in a valley whose image had been turned ghoulish from one of serenity.  The exhibition was organized by Communications Research Strategoies Pvt. Ltd. (CRS). The organisers said they believed the exhibition would be helpful in making people understand and appreciate the revival of Swat. “A great deal has been done to restore Swat to its former self but a lot needs to be done further and all of us can play a role in that,” they said. The organisers said the exhibition would strengthen the nation’s resolve to protect its identity as a modern, progressive and peaceful nation.
