Among these newly introduced destinations is Keran, and All India Radio (AIR) Srinagar will be hosting a show near the Line of Control (LoC).
The AIR’s renowned current Programme ‘Shaherbeen’ and the Pahari Programme’s team with the assistance of Army’s 28 Infantry Division Kupwara, are all set to conduct a captivating Pahari Variety Cultural Show.
The event, scheduled for July 27th will take place on the serene banks of Kishenganga River in Keran, district Kupwara.
