Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra has emphasised on the need for documenting, preserving and effectively showcasing the rich composite cultural heritage and varied traditional art forms of the state. The Governor, who is also the chairman of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, announced that the Board could consider providing scholarships for undertaking research projects on important aspects of the state’s traditional performing art forms and other arenas of cultural heritage to preserve them for the coming generations.
“A committee of experts could be set up to decide the nature and field of study for which a scholarship may be provided,” the Governor said, after releasing a book titled “Valley of Words”, authored by Shakeel-ur-Rehman, Public Relations Officer, J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages, at a function held at Raj Bhavan. Vohra also highlighted the important role which media, particularly the print media, can play in effectively showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions through publication of well researched articles for enlarging awareness of the people at large.
