Rare books ignite spirit

To promote reading of nationalistic literature among youth on Martyrdom Day on Tuesday, March 23, Servants of the People Society, an NGO, displayed rare books at Dwarka Dass Library, Lajpat Rai Bhawan in Sector 15, Chandigarh.

Librarian GS Thakkar said, “In our 80,000-strong collection, there are 16 books and newspapers which date back to the times of Bhagat Singh. But I am yet to come across any college student who has visited this place to read the rich literature.”

In another event organized by students of PEC University of Technology, there were stage shows and music performances. This was reportedly the first time when most clubs jointly participated in Martyrdom Day functions.
