First girls of the Kirpal Sagar Academy showed beautiful dances as in the days before and in the afternoon. Then students of the B.Ed. College, Kirpal Sagar, performed a choreography which demonstrated how people belonging to different religions are set to fight against each by an agitator. Different scenes made evident that finally women and children become the innocent victims and that it is in our hand to live in peace if we respect one another and meet from man to man.
