Srinagar: The cultural wing of Kashmir University on Saturday hosted a calligraphy competition after opening following COVID-19 protocols.

The university remained shut for several months amid COVID-19 imposed lockdown.

"In Kashmir, calligraphy has a thousand years of rich history and during the past, calligraphy was so popular among the people. But due to modernization, this art is dying and losing its glory which results in the present generation not having proper knowledge about the calligraphy," Aleeza, a participant, told ANI.

"So that's why cultural wing Kashmir University organized a wonderful calligraphic competition with guidelines that attracts participants, especially girls who enjoyed the competition," added Aleeza.

Iram Malik, another participant, told the news agency: "Just like contemporary art, we are trying to do contemporary calligraphy. whoever has a got hold in their hand can do calligraphy. The paintings related to calligraphy are sold easily in foreign countries and in Kashmir as it is connected to our roots. It has come from Mughal and Persian culture."
