CHANDIGARH,22.09.21-The Foreign Students Cell of Mehr Chand Mahajan DAV College for Women, Chandigarh, in collaboration with Government College Chamba, Himachal Pradesh, organised an online International Poetry Writing Competition to celebrate International Day of Peace. More than 80 participants sent in their thought provoking self composed poems that stressed on strengthening the ideals of peace and transforming the world into a more equitable, inclusive and peaceful one. The participants, through their poetic expression, beseeched humanity to commit to peace above all differences and to contribute towards building a culture of peace. Reminding everyone of the beautiful creation of God that this world is, Principal Dr. Nisha Bhargava shared her self composed poem 'Aman aur Jung' wherein she questioned humanity that when each particle of this world craves for peace then why humans hold on to the feeling of hatred. Giving the message of winning hearts and not wars, Dr. Bhargava urged everyone to celebrate peace by standing up against acts of hate and by spreading compassion, kindness, and hope. The best three entries of the competition were awarded cash prizes and all the participants were given e-certificates.
