Srinagar, July 18: The KU Vice-Chancellor Prof Talat Ahmad has assured his full support to the development and activities of the varsity’s Department of Kashmiri.
He was addressing a national level seminar on “Changing styles of Nazam writing”, organized by the Kashmiri Department.
Addressing scholars, academics and students, Prof Talat said the Department of Kashmiri has to be a flagship institution of the university and my administration would do everything to strength it in terms of infrastructure and faculty.”
“Now that the department has been provided new spacious accommodation, we will focus on its infrastructure building and faculty support,” he said, receiving appreciation from the audience.
Prof Talat said the people of Kashmir should be proud of their mother-tongue. “One should be proud of his native language,” he said, asserting that “I would learn Kashmir language during my tenure.”
Head, Department of Kashmiri, Prof Majrooh Rashid talked about various aspects of the theme, saying “the present seminar will go a long way in understanding various dimensions and evolution of Kashmir Nazam.”
Prof Rashid said the seminar is an attempt to understand the rich literature in the form of “nazm” and see the challenges this genre of poetry is facing.
Noted writer and poet Prof Shafi Shouq pleaded for lifting all restrictions on the style of “Nazam.” “Kashmir Nazam has to free itself from traditional restrictions and it has to be in tune with the present day needs of both readers and writers,” said Prof Rehman Rahi.
Member Legislative Council Muhammad Yousuf Teng delivered presidential address. “In the scenario of changing attitudes, values, life style and changing meanings to relationships, Ghazal has lost its relevance today,” he said.
He advocated that in the present age, Nazam can best portray and give catharsis to these feelings and attitudes.
The seminar proceedings were conducted by Prof Ratan Lal Talashi.
