Srinagar: The New Year is expected to bring some smiles in the City as a fun festival -Funstoosh is all set to start from January 7, the hosts said while releasing its mascot.
“It’s a festival to make people laugh and sooth their nerves through theatre and musical shows,” the organizers said.
“People of the valley grow sluggish in winters and prefer to stay indoors. At home, people just remorse over tragic events of the past. This event is a breather in a grim situation,” said Sibet Qureshi, organizer of the event.
