Dwarka: On 24th March, the annual CCRT Virasat Kamladevi festival commenced. The evening saw a large audience gather in the auditorium to witness the play 'Pahatiya', directed by Dr. Yogendra Choubey from Natya Vibhag Rangmandal, Indira Kala Sangit Vishwavidyalaya. The performance by the artists depicting the life of the unsung hero, Gend Singh from Chhattisgarh, left the audience mesmerized.

He led a guerrilla war with a bow and arrow against the British and ignited the spirit of freedom struggle among the masses of Chhattisgarh.
