Ludhiana February 18
The Shaheed Baba Bhan Singh Memorial Trust performed a play in the memory of martyr Shaheed Bhan Singh at Sunet village here last evening. On this occasion, ‘vaar’ singing was also performed by the women of Baddowal.

Artistes of Lok Kala Manch, Mullanpur, performed the play titled "Choran De Vas Pai Ke Bharat Ma Kurlandi". It was a sarcastic dig at the corrupt politicians of the country. Through other short skits, same artistes spread the message that political leaders invited vulgar artistes to perform on stage during their rallies. Such tactics were used to woo the voters but vulgarity and violence disturbed the moral balance of youth.
