The kids on the street who are usually found cleaning the wind screen of the cars were now vendors of bouquets of roses to the commuters. Celebrating this particular festivity is deteriorating the culture of Pakistan to the lowest ebb. It is a festival which we do not dare to celebrate openly.

(A)Bhutto family is considered as one of the most dominant and influential political……..He tried his best to portray their Sindhi culture appealingly.

ANS: Enculturation

CRITICAL ANALYSIS:
The life of SHAEED BANEZIR BHUTTO is the best and true example of enculturation. , being a daughter of famous politician SHAEED ZULFIQAR ALI BHUTTO, she spends her entire life living with his norm and values. Being a sindhi but raised in abroad does not change her life style and love for his culture .She was not only true reflection of her culture but also passes her values norm and traditions into her children too.....her three children SPECIALLY her son BILAWAL BHUTTO are mirror image of her, TRUE representator of her culture .After the death of this great leader her children are carrying on their work where their mother Benazir Bhutto left off indeed.

(B) Basant celebration have reached the point that invitation cards are printed out………
Our culture as it our culture.

CRITICAL ANALYSIS:
BASANT festival is not apart of Pakistani culture. Basically the word BASANT is an Hindus origin and its dedicated to the Hindus goddess of knowledge and art sarswati .Before partition the festival religious roots took a back seat and it was celebrated by HINDUS and MUSLIM of that time, Moreover BASANT is not accordance with Pakistani traditions and Islamic values that men and women dance together in public place this might be Hindus practice which no we have INCO-OPERATED it.

It is a day of love when people gave gifts and cards to their loved once .VALENTINE is against Islamic values, norms and culture .This tradition reflects in sensitivity and ignorance of Islam and destroying are youth too. Basically it’s a propaganda of western capitalist society which wants to celebrate all those days where people can come out to shopping mall and spent money.
