Department of Culture launches novel initiative to promote JK’s treasured art

Badam Vaer to celebrate Mehjoor’s legacy with strings of Rabab

“Beginning from the historic city of Srinagar, I have asked the department to convene series of programs mostly on weekends in public places like Badam Vaer, Iqbal Park, Sunday market, Lal Chowk, Pratap Park and other places,” said Minister for Finance & Culture, Dr Haseeb Drabu, known for his inspiring initiatives as J&K Bank Chairman to preserve and promote J&K’s cherished cultural heritage.

As a part of this initiative, a musical evening, which will resonate the historic Badam Vaer in Srinagar with the strings of Rabab, is being organized tomorrow to celebrate the legacy of Shair-e-Kashmir, Ghulam Ahmad Mehjoor.

“By organizing such programmes, we want to bring Art in Public Spaces,” said Dr Drabu adding it is being done in a different way to bring out the richness of J&K’s culture through theme based programs by dedicating evenings to legendary poets, musical instruments, poetic genres etc.
