Does appreciation do the job? Shouldn’t street talent be provided education and employment?
It’s been quite long since we are promoting street talent in Pakistan. Viral in Pakistan brought Abdul Qadeer, a very talented child from Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir. He then, was discovered by a philanthropist in Islamabad.
Recently, we promoted a painter from Karachi, Jameel Ahmed singing Sajjad Ali’s Har Zulm in his soulful voice. Jameel Ahmed, who is a painter by profession, later marked his presence on ARY News, where legendary singer Sajjad Ali himself appreciated his talent. There are many examples to follow. Thousands of people appreciated these talented people on Facebook but does appreciation do the job?
Most recently, a video of a little street child appeared on social networking site Facebook. In this video, the child can be heard singing Bollywood song, “Mohabbat Barsa Dena Tum.” Without any doubt, the child is very talented and can become a good singer if given proper training but will that be enough? No education for him? Not for Justin Beebees? And thousands of street children in Pakistan?

Won’t there be a better employment for Jameel Ahmed and scores of thousands people in Pakistan?
It is the time that we should not promote talent just for appreciation but also to raise our voices before authorities concerned to help these people and provide education and better employment. Have your say !
