JAMMU, Jan 21: Bhartiya Lok Sangeet Kala Sansthan (BLSKS) in collaboration with Sangam Tru Art Production today staged its 139th musical play ‘Ladli’ at Government Middle School (GMS), Kot.
Written, produced and directed by ML Dogra (chairman, BLSKS), the play reflects the agony of two conservative families which are hell bent upon getting their daughter and son married at tender age, ignoring the advice of intellectuals of the society.

The cries of baby girl in womb of the mother caution all of us in the society “Don’t kill me. I will be your helping hand in old age”.
