Monuments to become hubs of arts and culture


Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Neglected historical structures will get a new lease of life since the Delhi government plans to promote and preserve them as centres of arts and cultural heritage, where weekly performances and exhibitions will be held from February. State archaeology department undertakes restoration of several ancient structures every year but due to lack of proper mechanism for their safety, monuments are prone to wear and tear.

In order to overcome these issues, the department recently decided to organise frequent cultural events — mushairas, exhibitions, kavi sammelans, dastangoi sessions, plays, folk dances and musical events — at these historical buildings on Saturdays.
