Dastan-e-Dil

Doraha, April 3
The Youth Forum of Doraha with the assistance of Sirjana Art group organised a ‘Natak Mela’, in thememory of freedom fighters, at the open air theatre of the Guru Nanak National College, Doraha, recently.

Two plays were specially staged to celebrate the occasion of the Martyrdom Day of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev.

A play titled ‘Hai Canada’ written by Prof Balwant Singh Pangali and directed by Prof Som Pal Heera was enacted. The play focussed on the craze for ‘foreignness’ among Indians and the agony and torment the Indian brides have to undergo after marrying the NRIs.

‘Dastan-e-Dil’, a solo play enacted by Prof Sompal Heera based on the autobiography of Lal Singh Dil laid stress on the evil of casteism and its adverse effect on society. A choreography titled ‘Mera rang de basanti chola’ was also conducted.

Prof Balwant Singh Pangali, general secretary, College Managing Committee, Mr Jaswant Singh Gill, director, Dr Narinder Singh, principal of the college were among those who spoke on the occasion.

They recalled the services rendered by the martyrs for India’s independence and the lessons today’s generation has to learn from those supreme sacrifices.

Mr Om Parkash Bector, a freedom fighter, Mr Lakhwinder Singh Buani, Mr Pawan Kumar Kaushal, Mr Jandeep Kaushal, Prof Williamjit Singh, Mr Tarlok Singh Jaggi, Prof J.S. Grewal, Mr Mudit Mohindra, Mr Joginder Kirti, Mr Narinder Anand were present on the occasion.

Two outstanding students, Nancy Kapila and Upasana Kaushal, were honoured for their commendable academic performance.
