The Arts and Culture Society of Zakir Husain Delhi College organized Jashn-e Adab: Hindustani Sahityotsav on 30 October 2019 in the college auditorium to commemorate the shared cultural legacy of Hindi and Urdu languages.

The Principal of the College, Dr. Masroor Ahmad Beg delivered the inaugural address in which he emphasized the need for organizing such festivals in present day India. Professor Sudha Singh, Department of Hindi, University of Delhi, delivered a lecture on this topic. Highlighting the shared literary heritage of Hindi and Urdu languages, Professor Singh said that our country is founded on the principles of composite culture and civilization.

The rift created by narrow considerations on both sides of the communal divide needs to be bridged to strengthen this united legacy. A progress can be made in this direction through a comprehensive cultural dialogue and research.

Aman, student of the theatre society of Zakir Husain Delhi College, performed a mono act, which was based on Arvind Jain’s book ‘Aurat Hone ka Arth”. Daksh Sharma, student of the Music Society of college, mesmerised the audience with his rendition of Mirza Ghalib’s ghazals. The principal highlights of the programme were Vicky Ahuja’s enactment of Vijaydan Detha’s story “Fitrati Chor” and K C Shankar’s solo performance based on Patras Bokhari’s “Marhoom ki Yaad Mein”.

Dr. Waseem Rashid captivated the audience with his poetry. The festival also featured Devesh Bisht’s singing performance and Nabeel Khan’s sarangi performance. They are students of Indian Classical Music Society of Zakir Husain Delhi College. Illume, Western Music Society of the College, performed a group song. Mr. Abdul Hameed, Convenor of Arts and Culture Society, delivered vote of thanks. Dr. Suraiya Khan and Dr. Laxman Yadav hosted the event.
