Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat will address the Kashmiri Hindu community through video conference during Navreh celebrations on April 3. Sanjeevani Sharda Kendra (SSK), Jammu is organizing a three-day event from April 1-3 to celebrate ‘Tyaag’. And urge ‘Shaurya Divas’ and ‘Kashmiri Samaj’ to take a pledge to return to their homeland on the auspicious occasion of Navreh.
SSK has been celebrating ‘Navreh, Tyag and Shaurya Divas’ with community members and school children since many years and used to organize seminars, essay writing and quiz competitions.
According to SSK, the Navreh celebrations will begin on April 1 with ‘Tyag (sacrifice) day’ in memory of Shriya Bhat (a historical symbol, said to be the savior of Kashmiri Hindus). Navreh (the first day of the new year) on 2nd April is celebrated as Navreh Sankalp Diwas.
On 3 April, Shaurya Diwas will be celebrated in honor of Laltaditya Muktapida, the eighth-century king of Kashmir, for his valor and victory over the Turks and for expanding his kingdom from Central Asia to Bengal in East and South India.
The Navreh celebrations will conclude with a virtual address by RSS Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat to the Kashmiri Hindu community. The word ‘Navreh’ is believed to be derived from the Sanskrit ‘Navavarsha’ which means new year.
This Chaitra (spring) coincides with the first day of Navratras. Kashmiri Pandits dedicate the Navreh festival to their goddess Sharika and pay tribute to her during the festival.
