Handwara: Handwara town today witnessed the grand finale of a Music & Cultural festival. Renowned artists like Kabul Bukhari, Waqar Khan, MC Musaaib, Anil Pandit Chingari & Shagufta performed on the occasion and enthralled the crowds with their mesmerising performances. It was the first time that an event of such a magnitude has been conducted in North Kashmir. The presence of a large crowd which overflowed the performance ground, in Government Degree College, Handwara was witnessed for the first time in the area. The spectacular sight of ‘Badalta Kashmir’ was evident during the event.
Maj Gen HS Sahi, GOC Kilo Force, was the Chief Guest for the event. Speaking to the assembled gathering, he appreciated the artists as well as participation of people of Rajwar, Langate & Qaziabad. Maj Gen HS Sahi felicitated the Artists & Anchors, and also appreciated the zeal and enthusiasm of locals for whole-heartedly accepting the progressive change in the Kashmiri Society.
