Palette of Souls – a book published on small-scale, was a collection of enlightening stories, poetries, thoughts and articles. It was prepared and produced by us – the then Matriculate students (Tenth Graders) with us being the sub editors, layout designers and writers!
Our teacher Mrs. Tasneem Vali was in charge of the project while another teacher Mrs. Talat Jabeen was the editor. Mrs. Uzma Shahnawaz being the Graphic designer and our school as the approval head.
I was one of the six SUB-EDITORS and submitted a total of three writings: A poem and two articles. This book was a HUGE SUCCESS for the LINGOVINZA! Actually, it had been designed for the lingovinza exhibition at our school: a show where different cultures were displayed and different languages were utilised in a variety of programs. There were so many dramas, cultural setups and the most amazing part was the presence of famous writers and poets of the past who walked and chatted in their own beautiful ways! 😀
There was Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Shah Bhitai, and so many other writers of ancient times who were impersonated by the students. They dressed in their style and talked about their works so casually that it attracted the audience way too much!
A special logo for the lingovinza was designed – which itself was written in a number of languages! The book ‘Palette of Souls’ was distributed to all of us, of course and to the many schools who visited. It was supposed to be published later at large-scale, but the idea hasn’t been accomplished yet.
All of this happened a lot of time ago, but these memories – oh, they are always so cherish-able and beautiful!
