On the occasion of the 400th Parkash Purb of Hind-Di-Chaddar Guru Teg Bahadur, senior faculty of IK Gujral Punjab Technical University composed and sang a spiritually devotional song.

The senior faculty of Electronics Department Prof Avtar Singh Buttar initiated this job out of his educational teaching track.

The lyrics and the background music of this religious song dedicated to Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib were also performed by Prof Buttar.

The song was released by Vice-Chancellor of the university Prof Ajay Kumar Sharma during a special but limited function at the university. Before the release of the song, a prayer (ardaas) was also offered. On this occasion, Prof Ajay Kumar Sharma said the university was planning a number of programmes in the series of 400th Parkash Purb including seminars, workshops on the Guru’s life and message, kavi darbar and releasing books.
