Indian scouts enthralled by GCU’s ‘Deewar’


The Government College University Dramatics Club’s (GCUDC) symbolic play ‘Deewar’ enthralled the visiting delegation of 200 Indian scouts at a special cultural evening “Camp Fire” organised by the GCU Rovers Club at the university’s Bukhari Auditorium on Wednesday.
GCU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Muhammad Khaleeq-ur-Rahman was the chief guest at the evening which was marked by performance of musical compositions, folk tunes, cultural dances, peace songs and skits. The highlight of the evening, the Urdu play Deewar opened at a rural locality with two squabbling neighbours. Both families are shown to be from the farming community living in modest houses. There is a line of bricks that divides the houses. This wall is extended beyond its physical contours by the two farmers who keep blaming each other for creating problems in their homes. The audience were easily able to identify the two families as representing Pakistan and India. At the conclusion of the play, the scouts from Pakistan gave their salute to the GCU Dramatics Club, saying that India and Pakistan should also give peace a chance. The Indian scouts were highly appreciative of the symbolism and acting in Deewar. They were amazed at the actors’ mastery over the Indian dialect. Some of them went to the stage to laud the performers.


  1. Indeed it was a marvelous play. It is need of an hour to maintain peace between these two countries rather than blaming each other.
