  3. A futile effort because from pictures i can see that all the “buyers” at stalls and participants in the venue are the people working in departments related to this event or engaged with same activity or business. In our greed for dollars we spent whole our marketing energies on earning dollars from tourists in 1980s and 90s. After the 9/11 we lost foreign visitors and came to realise that we do not even have local market. I can bet we cannot compete with embroidery and other stuff from Balochistan and NWFP for they are of highest quality and cheap.
    Such events are a good opportunity for our local officials to have a stay in five star hotels, which presents a picture of military barracks than a cosy hotel. As a nation we do not know what to do. therefore, we are imitating what others do. hence our abysmal condition.
