Dear Friends!

It is quite shameful that the VIRASAT is organizing such a big events in Uttarkhand, and totally ignoring, disrespecting the Uttarkhand Sanskriti & the people.

 It’s time for us to act on a serious issue against the ‘so called cultural organization’-“VIRSAT” organized by REACH - Dehradun (Rural Entrepreneurship for Art & Cultural Heritage) who claims to be the biggest cultural festival in Asia .

It is established with regards to promote culture and heritage but the fact is that, they don’t know how to respect the culture & people of uttarakhand which has been proved when they humiliated the legend of uttarakhand Shri.Narendra Singh Negiji.

 

They have also been partial every time with the local uttarakhandi artist and the other artists while serving them.

 
 

Why can’t they involve more uttarakhandi member, when our govt. is contributing money in the welfare?

 


 

Please join hands for this cause .

Thanks Rajneesh Ji, for sharing this information.

It is indeed a very sad and shameful incident that people who are organizing this Programme in Uttarakhand and are totally ignoring our concern.

Strong protest is required to be done for this.

"Virasat" had already done the same thing in past too... This is totally illogical to organize a "Rural Cultural and Heritage Festival" without involving local artists. 

Why state govt. is putting its money to this program, if they are not showcasing the rich art and culture of Uttarakhand?

This is really a shameful repeat of past. Government should have learned from the mistakes of past but they are again repeating the same.

Really awful.

To counter such things all shall have to come  on one platform and organize a  own  virasat programme  in repy to  the so called virsat protectors.    All the  cultural groups  should  protest.  Media should also make a note of it  and Uttrakhand Goverment should be more sensitive to local  cultural heritage-   It can  have two elements  -  ist local heritage and 2nd National heritage.   In the national hertiage part     the  elements of   our   national unity and cultural heritage can be included.   The  focus  should be on synthesis of  both  elements.

Hi Rajneesh,

Dehradun, 16 Oct: Virasat, which is being organised by Rural Entrepreneurship for Art and Cultural Heritage (REACH) these days, claims to be the biggest cultural festival of its kind in Asia. But, on Monday, a shocking incident took place that casts doubt about the organisation’s credentials with regard to promoting culture and heritage.
The musical programme of renowned Uttaranchali folk singer Narendra Singh Negi was cancelled at the last second, today. This clearly indicates the approach of the organisers toward local artists. If this can happen to the voice of Uttaranchal, Negi, one can guess how the Virasat people would treat other unsung artists of the hill state.
A festival of culture cannot just base itself on the art forms of the past, if it cannot countenance living culture of the present, however politically sensitive.
Narendra Negi, after performing at Chamyala, was on his way to Dehradun. He was informed when he was at Byasi that his musical performance had been cancelled. Negi’s artists from New Delhi and Garhwal had already arrived to give the performance at Virasat. But for dubious reasons, his show was cancelled.
Speculation was rife that due to pressure from the State Government, REACH was not interested in hosting Narendra Negi’s programme. When Garhwal Post approached Lokesh Ohri, Joint Secretary of REACH, a few days ago he said, “We are interested but are finalising the dates.” When asked about alleged pressure from the state government to cancel Negi’s
Pankaj bhai just go- through this articles and for more details you can talk to Uttarakhand swar samrat Shri Narender Singh Negi ji. who have face this humiliation by Virasat. 

performance, RK Singh, Secretary, claimed, “The State Government is well aware that our organisation does not brook interference. If the Narendra Negi programme is listed, it will take place.”
But, on Monday, all the claims proved hollow and Negi had to return to Pauri without performing. An insult to the folk arts of Garhwal that the people here, whose money is funding the programme, are unlikely to forget.
It will be recalled that Narendra Negi’s musical album ‘Nauchami Narayan’ is one of the most in demand VCDs ever in Uttaranchal. It is a satirical comment on the emerging political culture of the state which has struck a chord with the people. By turning away Negi, Virasat has proved to be merely the outward form of the performing arts, a mere marketing exercise – certainly not the repository of artistic conscience.

यह वास्तव मे यह बहुत ही निंदनीय घटना है! हमारे राज्य में इस प्रकार के आयोजन हो रहा है और राज्य के सबसे लोकप्रिय एव वरिष्ठ लोक गायक के प्रोग्राम को अंतिम समय में निरस्त कर दिया जाता है !

और सबसे चौकाने वाली बात है हमारे राज्य सरकार बिलकुल चुप है ! इससे यह प्रतीत होता है कही ना कही नेता लोगो की भी इसमें मेहरवानी होगी !

ये शायद " नौछमी" नारायणा एल्बम जिसमे नेगी जी ने नेताओ की अच्छी क्लास लगाई थी, उसके बदले की राजनीती हो सकते है !

फिर भी शर्म आणि चाहिए यह राज्य के गौरव का सवाल है !

ये एक उदाहरण है । जब एक प्रतिशठित कलाकार के साथ एसा व्यवहार हो रहा हो तो आम उत्तराखन्डी का क्या हाल होगा?
एसे बहुत से लक्ष्य प्रश्न हैं जिनका समाधान होना उत्तराखंड के अस्तित्व में आने से लेकर उसके भविष्य के निर्धारण के लिये जरूरी हैं ।
