An open letter (Part I) to the Chief Minister of Punjab, Sardar Parkash Singh Badal, by the students of Anad Conservatory.

I think he has to choose whether he is only to the CM of Akali Dal affiliates or is he also be the leader of all Punjabis, especially the ones who have given up their careers, jobs, ambitions and personal comforts to selflessly contribute to the rebuilding of Punjab, in particular!

A film by Singh TejInder. As part of the Oral History project, over 38 interviews have been done by Tejinder Singh, the runaway kuDee Banipreet Kaur when there were zillion things to be done, supported by Ashmita Lucktoo, Harpreet Kaur, Guddu Shailender, Kawaldeep Singh, Ajiteshwar Singh, Gaurav Kapoor(I hate Rupal Jain for he hasn’t called me in a hundred years), the abscondingPreeti Kathuria, Eknoor Kaur – but especially our staff at Sultanpur Lodhi,Jatinder Singh, Jagwinder Singh, tens of students and faculty. I am so grateful to the Akal-Sat Purkha for the gift of you all. Well, I do hate several amongst you if not all, but overall its cool to be at Anad!

I am going to fight tooth and nail to get the Qila for you all and countless others who deserve to have this thematically chosen locale for adaptive reuse as home to the cultural resurgence and blah blah blah —even though we, at Anad, are amongst the most plagiarized people on the planet but aren’t we a spring-sui-generis people?

It’s game on fellows – brace up!
