Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 12: In its efforts to revive the disappearing Dogra cultural ethos, Team Jammu today organized impressive Lohri procession to educate the younger generation about age old traditions of Jammu region.
The Lohri procession started from historical Mubarak Mandi complex-seat of erstwhile Dogra rulers and culminated at the world famous Shri Raghunath Temple before passing through different routes of the city including Chowk Chabutra, Jain Bazar, Link Road, Purani Mandi, Center Basic School Road, Super Bazaar Market and City Chowk. Route of the procession was especially decorated with buntings, flowers and banners. Various shopkeeper associations, from Mubarak Mandi to Raghunath Bazar had set up stalls of water, juice, fruits and dry fruits to welcome the participants who were beating dhols and singing traditional Dogri songs. People welcomed the procession including Nat Manch artists performing Dhandiya at several places by showering flower petals.
Interacting with the people, chairman of the Team Jammu Zorawar Singh Jamwal said that culture and ethos of Dogras were under threat due to cultural aggression by the successive democratic elected government of State after 1947. "We are facing identity crisis. It is high time for Dogra to wake up otherwise Dogra culture and ethos would be a history", he warned and added that aim of today's event is to educate younger generation about our cultural festivals like Lohri. While interacting with youth, chairman Team Jammu, Zorawar Singh Jamwal especially appealed to the people to encourage their wards in speaking mother tongue Dogri language and also educate them about the Dogra history and its contribution towards developing erstwhile J&K state that once had its territory upto Gilgit, Baltistan, Balochistan as well as upto Tibet.
