As part of the ongoing Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, NCC cadets and other artists are making five 75-m scroll paintings.

These paintings, being prepared on the campus of Chitkara University will be displayed at Rajpath, New Delhi, during the Republic Day celebrations.

The painting workshop is being conducted under the Kala Kumbh programme, a joint initiative of the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Culture, to showcase the struggle of the unsung heroes of India’s freedom movement.

Three war heroes, Hony Capt Bana Singh and Subedar Sanjay Kumar, recipients of Param Vir Chakra, and Major DP Singh, a veteran of the Kargil war, were also present on the occasion. They interacted with the students and motivated them to excel in all spheres. — TNS
