Jammu: Chief Secretary, Atal Duloo received a Kenzi Khoass, a bronze cup symbolizing Kashmiri Pandit culture, from Kanwal Peshin, a distinguished poet, writer, and cultural activist. Concurrently, Peshin presented “Roop Dedh,” a book delineating the life and teachings of Mata Shree Roopa Bhawani.
The event culminated in the unveiling of a compiled video showcasing 7 Waakhs of Mata Shree Roopa Bhawani, meticulously selected by Kanwal Peshin from authenticated rahesyaupdesh translated into a book by Satish Dhar.
Vocal renditions were delivered by Sumita Bhat, accompanied by musical direction from Ravi Bhan. The video, conceptualized by Peshin, integrates footage from the Mata Roopa Bhawani film, ensuring comprehensive preservation of Mata Shree Roopa Bhawani’s spiritual legacy.
This initiative, facilitated and presented by the Athrot Cultural Foundation in collaboration with the Athrot Productions YouTube channel and The Modern Kashmiri Pandits Facebook page, will be available for viewing on the Athrot Productions YouTube channel starting from February 1, 2024.
