Musical dance drama staged

Patiala: It was a miracle in a real sense of the term with an MA-I student of Punjabi University’s Department of Dance, Puneet Kumar Salhotra, most astutely and judiciously bringing into juxtaposition on stage the indiscriminate massacre of nearly 140 innocent schoolchildren by the Taliban suicide bombers in a Peshawar Army school on December 16, 2014 through a musical dance drama, “Jihaad-Ya Fasaad!”. It was almost singlehandedly portraying the most brutal and ruthless incident-of-its-kind by Salhotra, including its conceptualisation, visualisation, designing, choreographing, acting and direction. The ‘complete theatre’ constituted a part of all-student attempt, named “Aagaaz-2015”, winning a thunderous applause and standing ovation from an unprecedentedly jam-packed audience assembled in the university’s kala bhawan. Completely awed and downrightly impressed by the stupendous performance of musical dance drama, chief guest Vice-Chancellor Dr Jaspal Singh announced staging of multiple shows all around the country, to be sponsored by the university, also offered a cash award of Rs 25,000. Director of North Zone Cultural Centre Dr Rajinder Gill and University’s Dean Academic Affairs Dr AS Chawla eulogised the performance as immaculate. Dr Indira Bali, in charge of the Dance Department, supervised the event.

Educational tour

The Department of Physics, GSSDGS Khalsa College, Patiala, conducted a one-day educational tour for postgraduate students of physics.
