The arts and artists play an important role in building society, Himachal Pradesh Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla has said.
     
He presided over the closing ceremony of the 68th annual All India Drama and Dance Competition organised by the All India Artist Association (AIAA) in Shimla, according to an official release on Sunday.
     
The governor said that dance and drama have always been an integral part of human civilization.
     
"It is such a powerful form of expression in which there is no boundary of language and it effectively conveys feelings, stories, and ideas where words fall short," he said, adding it can awaken deep emotions in people and broaden their imagination.
     
On the occasion, the governor presented the Sudarshan Gaur Lifetime Achievement Award to Prashant Bhagat, Balraj Sahni Award to Lokinder Trivedi, and Gopi Krishna National Award to Ashish Pillai and Meenu Chadha for their outstanding contributions to the field of art.
