A seminar was organized by Sindh University, Thatta Campus with collaboration of Department of Culture, Tourism and Antiquities, Government of Sindh on “Digital promotion and preservation of archaeological sites in Sindh”. Students of the campus who were from different departments have participated in this lecture with interactive session. Mr. Amar Fayaz Buriro, a well-known language engineer and programmer of Sindhi and Urdu language was guest speaker where he elaborated the ongoing rapid revolution of digital media and incorporation of social media in it. Where opportunities are vastly opened for all users of the world. “We are in that opportunity so we can enlist our historical monuments, landmarks as well as our villages, towns and cities. We can add the information of our daily lives and our archaeological ruins on Wikipedia, google maps and other social media channels like facebook, twitter for giving eternal age to our landmarks.” Said Amar Fayaz.
“One another threat is, if we may not participate in this informational revolution then we will be backward and will be pushed to past.” He emphasized that it is our basic responsibility to protect and preserve our archaeological sites and ruins and feel proud that we have a glazed past and take development paces for the better future.
In the last session of questions and answers students shown keen interests in this regard. Mr. Aftab Ahmed member of the faculty had offered thanks to participants and Antiquities department for raising this awareness program.
