Ludhiana, October 22, 2016: A collection of Punjabi ghazals – Amaltas De Patte – by Dr.S.N.Sewak was released by Padmashri Dr.Surjit Patar. The function was jointly organised by Punjabi Sabhyachar Akademi, Ludhiana and Akhar Kav Kabeela, Amritsar in collaboration with Ishmeet Singh Music Institute, Rajguru Nagar, Ludhiana.
