A Kashmiri play, Kahan Gaav Yaad Thaw, was presented at Tagore Hall here on Saturday.
Written by Kashmiri writer late Gh Ali Majboor, the play has been directed by Shah-e Jehan Ahmad Bhagat.
Producer Gh Mohi ud Din Aijaz organized the playunder the banner of National band theatre.
The organizers said that the play was conducted to promote Kashmiri culture and save brotherhood among Kashmiris. “It will also put light on the historical background of Kashmir. It focuses on how to tackle the present problem arising in Kashmir,” they said.
The play started with a combination of Mousiqi and folk song with little scenes of satire on the hatred for each other, how it has divided and harmed the brotherhood in Kashmir.
The play presented “Kashmir as cow” which is “very useful to humankind, but the man for his selfish needs makes its wrong use due to he ultimately lost the cow”.
“We should remove the stigma attached to the Band Paether and should not look it down as it is our own culture,” one of the organizers said on the occasion.
SSP Budgam Fayaz Ahmad Lone who was guest of honour at the function, said, “we have to show respect to our culture and language to promote it. And should include our youngsters to take part in our culture activities like Band Paether.”
On this occasion the artists including Himayun Qaiser and Talat Jahangir were awarded with Karam Buland Award and Khilate Gh Ali Mahjoor Award.
Gulshan Badrini, who moderated the event, announced that from now onwards 15 May will be celebrated as the anniversary of late Gh Ali Majroor.
