Chandigarh,  A floating light and sound show was organised at Ropar town of Punjab in the Satluj river to commemorate the 550th Parkash Purab of Guru Nanak Dev.

Vidhan Sabha Speaker K. P. Rana inaugurated the show, while Tourism and Cultural Affairs Minister Charanjit Singh Channi was also present.
