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.
