    Patiala Sarswati Award Winner and novelist Dalip Kaur Tiwana today addressed the delegates on the second last day of the National Integration Camp (NIC) being organised by Government of India's Northern Regional Language Centre (NRLC) and Punjabi University's SGTB National Integration Chair. While interacting with the delegates Tiwana said that her creative writing commenced with the publication of her first book of short stories "Sadhna" in 1961 which was declared book in its genre by the Government of Punjab's department of languages.

    Dwelling on the importance of literature, she said "Literary works are portrayals of the thinking patterns and social norms prevalent in society. They are a depiction of the different facets of common man's life. Classical literary works serve as a food for thought and a tonic for imagination, creativity and national integration. Exposing an individual to good literary works is equivalent to providing people with the finest of educational opportunity".

    Giving this information, Chair Professor Baltej Mann said that an Inter-faith prayer and cultural programme were also held today at Jasdev Singh Sandhu Public School in which Sarbjinder Singh, Incharge, Punjabi University's Guru Granth Sahib Studies Department spoke at length on the wisdom of saints of various denominations and regions in Guru Granth Sahib as an act of both religious and secular integration. The participants also visited the historical places at village Ajrawar and paid obeisance at Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurudwara at Bahadurgarh.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
