The Indian Express Reports on Neglected Ludhianna Rock Garden

The Indian Express Reports on Neglected Ludhianna Rock Garden
December 13, 2013

The Indian Express has reported on the neglected Rock Garden at Punjab Agricultural University in Ludhiana in a story echoing the Nek Chand Foundation website article of 2 March 2012.

The University's small Rock Garden was created over twenty years ago under the direction of Nek Chand and with a gift from him of around 30 statues to his friend and former University Chancellor, Dr M S Randhawa.

Currently the site is neglected with all statues missing, walls in disrepair and an elegantly-shaped pond filled with green stagnant water.  The sad state of affairs was discovered by Nek Chand Foundation volunteers from the UK and Chandigarh on a visit to the Punjab industrial city in spring 2012 and reported on the NCF website.

This is the second time in two weeks that the English-language daily The Indian Express has carried a Rock Garden-related news item.  It is hoped the newspaper now turns its attention to serious issues of lack of funding and support at the main Rock Garden in Chandigarh.
