Guwahati: Vice President of India Jagdeep Dhankhar inaugurates the 3rd edition of Lokmanthan organised by Prajna Prabah in Guwahati. Governor of Assam Jagdish Mukhi and Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma were also present in the inaugural session of the three-day celebration of the Lok Parampara of the nation. The third edition of the Lokmanthan which will have several brainstorming sessions on cultural and lok parampara of the nation especially of the North East region is being observed with the theme to seek the cultural and traditional heritages hidden in the various corners of our country.
Speaking at the inaugural function of Lok Manthan 2022 Vice President of India Jagdeep Dhankhar Said, “Dialogue, debates and discussions are the soul of governance. Contemporaneous scenario on this count, particularly in legislature, is worrisome. Entire ecosystem upliftment can be effected by drawing lessons from our rich past. The thriving space for discussion and dialogue must be protected from the many dangers it faces. In a race for one-upmanship and under the constant glare of the public eye, debates – televised or on social media – are turning into cacophonous fighting arenas. The media should take the initiative here – they should introspect, pass on the mike and let unique, original and marginalized voices come to the mainstream.”
On the occasion Assam CM Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said Bharat is not a country formed after independence in 1947. Rather it is a civilization running for more than 5000 years. The left liberals and the so called secularists have been attacking the culture, heritage and tradition of this great country for years. We Indians have to reply to them intellectually, culturally and make them understand that Bharat is not an union of states, it is a living goddess and our living motherland.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Sahkaryabah Dattatreya Hosabale, Dr. Manmohan Vaidya, Prajna Prabah national coordinator J Nanadkumar and many eminent cultural and intellectual personalities of the country were present in the inaugural function of Lokmanthan 2022. Several sessions of intellectual and cultural brainstorming will take place in the Sankardev Kalakshetra venue in Guwahati in the next three days to rejuvenate the hidden tradition and cultural treasure of our country through Lokmanthan.
