Prepare souvenir of deities: Kardar Sangh

Tribune News Service

Mandi, September 12

The Kardar Sangh, Mandi, has urged the district administration to prepare a description souvenir of deities in the district, which will be a great help in promoting spiritual tourism in the district. A majority of tourists visiting Mandi are not aware of the history of deities because there is no such souvenir published earlier, in which the brief history of deities is described.

Kardar Sangh president Shiv Pal Sharma convened a meeting with the members to discuss the issue and decided to submit a memorandum to the district administration regarding it.

Sharma said every year, Shivratri is celebrated with fervour, where hundreds of deities congregate in the town to join the event but so far there is no such souvenir published in which the brief description of deities is given for the knowledge of visitors.

He said apart from this, there are several issues related to the deity culture, which were discussed so that a solution could be found. He said there should be a clear system of payment to the deities participating in the Shivratri fair as there are huge discrepancies. It should be reviewed on priority basis.

The Kardar Sangh has advocated for the registration of a few deities, who are participating in the Shivratri fair for the past many years but due to non -registration, the district administration was providing no financial assistance to these deities. The district administration provides financial assistance to the registered deities only, who visit Mandi town for the weeklong Shivratri fair every year.
