Dar (Madhya Pradesh): The three-day Narmada Sahitya Manthan, observed as ‘Bhojparv’, started on Sunday attended by RSS National Public Relations Director, National Public Relations Sunil Ambekar and National Culture Minister Usha Thakur. Narmada Sahitya Manthan’s Coordinator Dr Mukesh Modh also attended the event. This led to the release of a special column in the Jagrut Malwa monthly magazine based on King Raja Bhoj. At the meeting, Ambekar said that for running the country, we need to learn from Raja Bhoj’s system of governance. He also worked on developing advanced technologies for agriculture, and the standards set by Raja Bhoj for architecture are still relevant today, the RSS reader said.
Our past has been glorious. Not only should we read it and take pride in it, we should use it to shape the future of India. Ambekar added that the nation should be first for all of us. In her speech, Thakur said that the case of Sahitya Manthan plays an important role in eradicating deceptive literature and establishing glorious and factual writing. The state government is committed to establishing the real and glorious history of India. The minister said the government was committed to bringing the idol of goddess Vagdevi back from London to the UK. She added that the state government led by Korea will forever be indebted to the great revolutionaries who gave their lives for their country’s independence.
So, in honor of our freedom fighters, the state government has renamed over 30 Mhow schools after freedom fighters. In the second session, the Governor of Uttarakhand, Lt Gen (retd) Gurmeet Singh presented his views on internal security, challenges and solutions. He said that working for the country and society is a noble thing. In a situation where people today are unable to think outside of their families, when youth, writers and thinkers connect to topics like national security through events like Sahitya Manthan, I believe no one can harm the country.
The speaker for the third session was Harsh Chauhan, Chairman of the National Designation Tribal Council. He said we only know that much about the tribe we learned about through books, but if we wanted to study it in depth, we could. It can only be understood by working among them. The research done so far on the tribe has only been done by the British.
In response to research needs, the Commission organized tribal studies programs at 104 universities this time to provide an opportunity to get to know tribal societies up close. More than 1,000 writers and thinkers participate in the three-day event. Eight sessions will be held each day and will feature distinguished authors and subject matter experts from across the country.
