JAMMU, JUN 11: Hindustani Play ‘Toot-te Rishtey Khalakti Sarhadein’ was presented by Viraj Kendra, Jammu at Punjab Naatshala, Amritsar. The play was written by Additional Commissioner of Income Tax, J&K S K Sharma and directed by Rajneesh Gupta, Income Tax Officer, Jammu.
The play was successful in portraying the message that no matter distances have been created between India and Pakistan but emotions and sentiments are same in the hearts of Indians and Pakistanis. A large number of Indians and Pakistanis only seem to hate each other even though they have never spoken to or known anybody from across the border of both the countries. In fact, this hatred may be unfounded. The people across the border have the same dreams, same aspirations, same worries and face the similar propaganda from some sections of the society. A sense of resentment for others has unfortunately been kept within us. But, the other is not always the way we think of them. We are the ones that have made them the other.
The artists who performed were Sapna Soni, Meera Tapasvi, Dimple Sharma, Balwinder Singh, Pawan Verma, Aaditya Bhanu, Love Anand, Sudesh Thakur. Tarun Sharma. Ankush Bhasin besides dance artists. The lights of the play were executed by Arun whereas Rohit Verma rendered the music, Shammi Dameer, Make-up, Jagpal sets and Kusum Tickoo costumes of the play. Narinder Singh, Chief Commissioner of Income Tax, Bhatinda. Amritsar and J&K was chief guest on the occasion. He praised the performance of artists and said such types of plays are the need of the hour.
Jatinder Brar, founder of Punjab Naatshala distributed the certificates of Merit among the artists.
