We have produced not only good actors and artists but also meritorious professionals and civil servants. This is the first occasion when a product of Natrang has ventured in politics and has remarkably succeeded in achieving that. Entry of an artist in politics is a very healthy sign for the civil society and I am not only sure but confident that she will make a difference. He hoped that she will set new standards of politics and public governance in this country.Interestingly she won the Vice-Chairmanship through lucky draw as both the candidates who were fighting for Vice-Chairmanship received 7 votes each. It was indeed a dramatic moment and one can easily see the big upsurge. Adv.

Her performances as Jojan in the longest living contemporary theatre play of India ‘Bawa Jitto has made her more popular when she performed in the Aghar Jitto Mela.Daughter of a well-known poet of urdu and dogri Abdul Qadir Kundria, Sajra has received National Scholarship in the year 2011 for two years from Ministry of Culture, Government of India for folk and traditional and indigenous arts. Sharing her views, she shares “I believe that theatre makes a person disciplined, punctual, regular and most of all a socially aware and responsible human being. And a person having all these qualities can set herself in any field with a huge scope” and today if I have achieved this position is because of my active participation in theatre in association with Natrang which shaped me into a better person.
