Kathmandu: Vice President Nanda Bahadur Pun has expressed concern over the encroachment on the indigenous art, culture and languages, and drawn the attention of the sides concerned for their preservation.

Inaugurating the 10th congress of the Nepal Folklore Council here today, he called for preservation and promotion of the indigenous culture and hand it over to the future generation. The congress is organised in collaboration with Nepal Academy.

“The indigenous languages, culture and art are coming under increasing infringement. We are knowingly or unknowingly coming under this encroachment. Imagine what will happen to our identity if we lose our indigenous language, culture and art,” the Vice President said, warning of the consequences of losing our unique art, culture and language.

Stating that geography alone could not preserve our identity, he said the nation is not only the geography but it incorporated the indigenous art, culture, language and traditions as well. “My request is that let us preserve our unique languages, art, culture and rituals. Let us preserve them and hand them over to the future generation.”

The Vice President on the occasion reminded us that it is the responsibility of the State to preserve and promote all sectors concerned with folklore. The State should not shy away from this responsibility.

“The individuals and community-related to the sector as well as the academicians, intelligentsia and researchers should join hands in this campaign. Study and research have to be conducted on many areas related to folklore.

Along with this, we have the obligation to preserve and promote our uniqueness and our languages, culture, heritage and art that we are proud of for the promotion of Nepal’s identity in the world and for handing it over to the future generation,” he stressed.

The Vice President appreciated the works being carried out by the Council and the support provided by the Nepal Academy for the study, research, protection and promotion of the folklore.

Five books related to Nepal’s folklore were also launched on the occasion.
