A major series of events are being organized at the University of Delhi to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the 1857 Revolt. Apart from the fact that this was an event of great significance in the history of modern India, it is also very relevant that a great deal of the activity associated with this event was centred in places in and around what is today the University North Campus. The events are being organized by teachers and students of various Departments and Colleges of the University, with a view to generating a wider interest in the Revolt both within and beyond the confines of the University community.
A Dastan-goi performance is also a part of this extravaganza. Details are as given below:
