Budding Young Artist Dies!


Vivek Pandher, a 22-year-old UBC student, died on Sunday in Vancouver after he was found unresponsive at the Paradiso music festival in Washington late last month. By all accounts, Pandher was a budding young artist who delved in several art forms. He was well-known in Ludhiana as a street artist, who introduced graffiti in the city as well as forming a band called “Zonks” and had a major photo exhibition. See story on page 5.
