  1. I am not a regular viewer of Indian or English movies and not much interested in Cinemas. However for a balanced , healthy and delightful society Cinemas, Parks, Exhibitions, Cultural shows and different art based activities are required. You have presented this topic very thoughtfully , People like you’re very rare in our society. You know what are issues and how to solve them. Govt should take advantage of your extraordinary skills. Always admire your views and thoughts , you’re a gem of Pakistani media . Keep doing good work.
