The Border Security Force (BSF) has decided to resume the “Retreat Ceremony” at the Hussainiwala joint check post (JCP), Ferozepur, from Monday. It was stopped in view of the pandemic

The Border Security Force (BSF) has decided to resume the “Retreat Ceremony” at the Hussainiwala joint check post (JCP), Ferozepur, from Monday.

The audience gallery at the Hussainiwala JCP, which often hosts more than 1,200 visitors daily, has been wearing a deserted look for the last two years as the BSF had stopped the entry of the public to witness the “Retreat Ceremony” in view of the pandemic.

The Pakistan Rangers had allowed visitors about a year ago but their Indian counterparts had kept it closed yet.

“It’s a welcome decision on part of the BSF to resume the ‘Retreat Ceremony’ for visitors at Hussainiwala as the absence of visitors had hit the local economy,’’ said Ishu Sood, a restaurant owner.

“Though a light-and-sound show has been recently introduced at Hussainiwala, a majority of visitors were disappointed in the absence of permission to witness the Retreat Ceremony,” said Sachin Narang, a local.

  • An all-encompassing education system should provide knowledge seekers quality and affordable education at their doorstep to create effective learners endowed with domain knowledge, soft and hard skills and the ability to communicate across cultures, time and space.

    Bring higher education to Gen-Next’s doorstep

    “Can we be equal and excellent at the same time?” Former United States education secretary, John Gardner, had asked back in the 1960s. Since then, access, equity, quality and affordability in education have been widely debated. Technological advancements in the modern world are so prolific that higher education institutions (HEIs) unable to embrace the changes taking place in teaching and learning processes will lose relevance. Digitalisation will help learners who cannot come to the classroom, and those who are differently abled. Vidwan (a digital database of experts) allows expertise sharing and collaboration among academics and institutions.
