Lahore—As a part of its Mental Health Week celebrations, the Government College University Lahore (GCU) Dr Ajmal Psychological Society organized a Performing Arts Festival on the theme of ‘positive psychology’ on Tuesday.
About eight teams of different colleges and universities participated in the theatrical festival to project the conflict between good and evil forces within a human mind. Lahore College for Women University’s performance was most appreciated by the audience. It revolved around the story of an argument between the devils (of anger, hatred and greed) and angels (of love, hope and generosity) which were trying to lure a human mind with their rewards.
The Beconhouse University staged a play about the miseries of man suffering from a psychological ailment, and ultimately finds a way out from his superstitions and hallucinations in Sufism. The script tried to highlight the unexplained and mysterious healing power in Sufism.
The University of Central Punjab staged a play about people who called themselves spiritual healers and misguided people in the name of religion. The GCU Psychology Department presented a mime touching on Sufi traditions.
