Department of Hindi, JU celebrates Hindi Diwas
Sep 15, 2023
JAMMU: On the occasion of Hindi diwas, a programme has been jointly organised by the department of Hindi, University of Jammu, and Yuva Hindi Lekhak Sangh, Jammu, today, in which two research papers and one short story were presented.
Dr. Shiksha Rani evaluated the short story of Kalpana Jasrotia, which was read out to critics and literature lovers in the Yuva Hindi Lekhak Sangh's Goshthis during the past several months.
In her paper, she explained anxiety, tension, and depression and their relations to different dimensions and situations prevailing in our society.
The characters of the short stories experience unfortunate and disagreeable family or social conditions that firstly lead them towards anxiety, then tension, and then depression, as the paper reader has established.
It is an irony that in our society or within our families we don't discuss the beginning of such situations that may bring horror and pain of bad mental health upon a member, she opined.
Ashok Kumar read out a paper projecting the budding Hindi writers.
In the paper, it has been established that Mehnaaz and Archna kept rhythm with the far-back history of Hindi poetry and the problems of our society. Ranjit and Devendra are trying to keep pace with modernism.
Aarti and Dr. Parshottam Kumar have projected the inner conflicts of our society.
They have crafted sensitivity artistically. The short story by Kalpana Jasrotia presented a kaleidoscopic view of the world around us.
Speaking from the dais, Sheikh Mohammad Kalyan gave an account of Yuva Hindi Lekhak Sangh's activities.
Maharaj Krishan Santoshi, who presided over the function, eulogised the efforts of the organisation in lifting up the standard of young poets. He spoke at length about the two papers and the short story.
Amita Mehta compared the programme majestically, and Dr. Vandana Thakur presented the vote of thanks.
Earlier, the president of the organisation, Dr. Parshottam Kumar welcomed the audience.
