Jalandhar, September 12, 2016: CT Group of Institutions in association with North Zone Cultural Centre, Patiala, organized 3-Day Theatre festival in the premises of Sardarni Manjit Kaur Auditorium, Shahpur Campus. Bohemians Theatre’s Pupil Association also coordinated the festival.
The mesmerizing festival showcasing art concluded on Sunday with “Babu Jee” play. It was directed by Sh. Zafar Sanjari of Saakaar Foundation & Parivartan Samodh from Gwalior and written by Sh. Mithileshwar. He said that there is a need to encourage art and art activities.
The adaptation is based on the Nautanki style. Babuji is based on the North Indian folk art of Nautanki and the entire lifestyle of Babuji (Lallan Singh) is completely attached with dance and music. His feelings, his inspirations, his pain, his joy, his agony - everything is linked with the music. Babuji wants to attain perfection in his musical prayer. Disregarded and dishonoured by his own family and society, he establishes himself independently in music.
The play highlights the importance of Art. In this, artists totally convinced everyone to come up and work for the promotion and uplifting its value among the society.
Deputy Commissioner, Sh. Kamal Kishore Yadav applauded the performances and motivated everyone to encourage art. He said, “On one side the story depicted people still attached to feudalistic ideologies and on the other side goes on to describe the value of art. The play was very effective and impacting.” Sh. Kamal Kishore Yadav also appreciated the organizers for giving stage to such activities of encouraging art and theatre.
S. Charanjit Singh Channi (Chairman, CT Group of Institutions) said, “The theatre festival has encouraged and motivated the audience to uplift themselves, uplift their souls and mind towards the betterment of society, encourage art & Theatrical activities by fighting with the prevailing evils among us.”
