PU zonal heritage fest from Nov 28

Mandi Ahmedgarh, Nov 23

Students and staff at Gobind National College, Narangwal, are gearing up for the five-day Panjab University Zonal Youth and Heritage Festival, which is scheduled to begin on November 28.

A total of 1,700 participants from 21 colleges affiliated to Panjab University, Chandigarh, are expected to showcase their talent in about 70 cultural events spread across five days. The festival is dedicated to the memory of Dr Hardiljit Singh Gosal.

Prof Gurpreet Singh, coordinator of the event, informed that Principal Avinash Kaur had constituted separate teams to oversee the arrangements.

Expressing their gratitude to Dr Nirmal Singh Jaura, Director, Youth Welfare, Panjab University, for allowing the institute host the event, Pritpal Singh Grewal, chairman of the college trust, said display of items highlighting elements of culture and heritage of the border state would enthuse students and locals to revitalise the psychological atmosphere of the region.

“Conducting such an event is actually the need of hour as people have been feeling cultural starvation due to long cessation of extracurricular activities following the Covid outbreak,” said Jagpal Singh Khangura, president of the college trust.

Scheduled competitions would help the students improve their skills, he said.

Khangura also said the authorities had been advised to take proactive measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus or any other pathogen by conducting the event strictly in accordance with the Covid protocol.
