Evanescing Dogra heritage, culture cause of concern in J&K: Harsh
1/13/2020 9:30:51 PM
Early times Report
Mumbai, Jan 13: Eulogizing the credibility of the Dogra Samaj Trust, Mumbai in a grand cultural bonanza organized by it on the eve of Lohri, Harsh Dev Singh lauded the efforts of the trust for bringing all the members of the Dogra community staying in Maharashtra and particularly in Mumbai on a single platform to promote the Dogri language and culture among the people. "Its noble mission to extend all possible help to the community members at the time of critical junctures and medical exigencies during their visit here tantamount to benevolence which is praise worthy. At the same time, the matter of serious concern which bothers me is the fading Dogra culture and heritage back home which needs urgent attention before it's too late. We must all unite and work in synergy to save, restore and preserve the pristine glory of the Dogras in J&K which is evanescing gradually with time", asserted Harsh. He was addressing a star studded gathering from Bollywood and Entertainment industry besides thousands of people from Dogra community in the mega function yesterday which lasted till midnight as Chief guest at Chatterpati Shivaji Raje Ground in Bhawindi, Mumbai.
Addressing the gathering about the Dogra clan, Harsh Dev Singh elucidated that a Greek astrologer Pulomi, accompanying Alexander in campaign into Indian sub-continent, referred inhabitants of Duggar as "a brave Dogra family living in the mountain ranges of Shivalik". We should be proud of our history and language. But it's painful to see that the parents these days don't encourage their children to speak Dogri. They often rebuke their children when they converse in Dogri. One of the old Indo-Aryan languages spoken by about 5 million people is shockingly disappearing from towns, cities and districts. As Dogras we should not let the language be forgotten. Instead, we should start making efforts to communicate in it, read it, share it and promote it on individual level, asserted Harsh.
