By Agha Iqrar Haroon


Dispatch News Desk News Agency (DND) tries to integrate people of South Asian, Central Asian and Eastern European regions through providing information about similarities and commonness among these cultures.

The DND previously has been promoting Central Asian cultures and social norms to readers to show commonness and cultural linkage of Central Asia with South Asia and now this initiative enters into another phase—- exploring and promoting cultural of Eastern Europe.

Ukraine, the land of black fertile soil is bread basket of Europe and its cultural norms are based on agrarian social norms. If you visit any house in countryside of Ukraine, hens and cocks will welcome you as in any village house of Pakistan.

Women milking cows, working in fields, sewing and doing embroidery work is still an integral part of Ukrainian society. Homemade looms had been an integral part of every village of western Ukraine.  A loom is a device used to weave cloth and tapestry. The precise shape of the loom and its mechanics may vary, but the basic function is the same shape of looms is similar of being used in subcontinent.

Pottery of Ukraine is so similar with subcontinental design that one cannot judge weather a clay glass or clay cooking pot is produced in Gujrat city of Pakistan or in a Ukrainian town. Traditional wooden fodder cutter of Ukrainian village has same design of any one can find in the area of Gujranwala—-
