Pakistani pop singer Hadiqa Kiani walks for Charu Parashar's show at the Bridal Couture Week 2012 in Lahore. Indian designer Charu Parashar opened the Bridal Couture Week 2012 at Lahore by showcasing her dazzling collection of bridal lehnagas and saris on the Day 1 of the show. She displayed her latest collection of bridal couture that left the audience spellbound. Renowned Pakistani singer, songwriter and model Hadiqa Kiani was the showstopper of the show and was seen confidently walking the ramp wearing a green lehanga. At the end of the show, Hadiqa spoke to DT from Lahore and shared her experience of walking the ramp, "I was introduced to Charu through an Indian friend. When I met Charu first time I found her to be an extremely calm and collective person and her work is not only embellished with intricate designs but also with sheer honesty and purity. It is needless to say, that its clear reflection of her humble down to earth personality. To me , green is one of the colours of spirituality and I couldnt have felt this humbled. Wearing Charu's finely crafted work of art was a highly overwhelming experience. It was a wonderful experience to walk the ramp as showstopper and the non stop applause throughout by the crowd was a proof of its own. Finally, I 'm really glad that my song kamlee'' gelled well while I walked the ramp . Overall it was a moving experience."Charu who got back home on Sunday from Lahore shared with us,'It was one of the most memorable moment of my life to visit Pakistan.I never imagined that I shall ever get the opportunity to showcase my collection across the border. The response was stupendous. I was so touched with the hospitality, warmth and love people showed towards me.It was a different experience for me and my husband Anupam who had also accompanied with me for the show at Lahore. It was a very short trip so we could hardly go around teh city but we did meet lot of people from the fashion fraternity and everyone appreciated my collection. Hadiqa and the models did a very good job on the ramp , the show was a hit because of the entire team work. I personally thank Sultana Siddique, president of HUM TV channel for hosting such a grand event and making it so special for us. I strongly believe that sometimes when you perform beyond everyones expectations its seriously overwhelming and you feel more estatic about it."

Hadiqa Kiani UNDP Goodwill Ambassador Visits Thatta, Sindh (for post flood relief efforts)

Karachi: United Nations Development Programme’s National Goodwill Ambassador, Hadiqa Kiani visited communities of district Thatta of Sindh Province and interacted with village women, children, elders and other beneficiaries of UNDP support in restoring their socio-economic conditions with enhanced sustainability and disaster-resilience. 

Hadiqa was accompanied by the UNDP team led by the Country Director, Toshihiro Tanaka as well as local implementing partner representatives from Health and Nutrition Development Society (HANDS), Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) Pakistan and Sindh Rural Support Program (SRSP). The localities visited included Makli, Allahdino Khaskheli and Suleman Jutt village. Thatta is among the 29 districts affected by floods in 2010 where UNDP has implemented an Early Recovery programme through financial support from the Government of Japan, EU, USAID, AusAid, Government of Italy, Government of Kuwait and COFRA foundation. Hadiqa visited the display centre for handicrafts produced by beneficiaries of Makli. The centre was established through HANDS for enhancing the linkages of local village women groups with the main markets of Thatta city. Hadiqa and the UNDP team were also welcomed by the children, members of community and disaster risk management committee of the village Suleman Jutt supported through SRSP. One of the main objectives of the visit was to highlight the importance of linking Early Recovery interventions with climate change mitigation, adaptation strategy and disaster management at the community level. In this regard, Hadiqa visited the biogas plants established through WWF which provide rural poor families with sustainable access to alternate renewable energy, which is clean and requires no running cost. She also interacted with the staff of Disaster Management Center established by HANDS.  
This center has provided capacity building support to the communities and strengthened the preparedness and ability to respond to any possible disasters. Addressing a community gathering, Hadiqa said, “I am pleased to meet all of you. I appreciate UNDP’s efforts in introducing environmental awareness and the ability to respond to any future disasters.” She also underlined the importance of disaster risk reduction and environment. “I am impressed by the efforts of the communities which have shown resilience and cooperation in rebuilding their lives”. Hadiqa previously led the campaign with UNDP to raise awareness about environmental issues. “We are grateful to Hadiqa for her personal commitment and selfless efforts in helping the disaster-hit communities. She is a wonderful and admirable person and demonstrates a role model for Pakistani youth to follow,” said Toshihiro Tanaka, UNDP Country Director. “In partnership with UN agencies, NGOs, donors and the Government, we will continue to give support to local and national capacity building in creating more resilient and sustainable society that adapt and mitigate climate change risks through community based disaster risk management and providing sustainable renewable energy.”

We humbly thank Coke Studio & Rohail Hayatt for the wise decision of picking hadiqa kiani's, "kamli" to start of this season. Could it get any better than this? But wait! Is there more of Hadiqa Kiani to come in Coke Studio season 5? 
The answer is definitely YES and as much as people seem to love Kamli, it is without a doubt that Hadiqa herself has set her stakes higher and we all would be expecting another soul touching song produced within the musical vicinity of Coke Studio through Hadiqa Kiani's voice.
