Nepal: The Tharu community is currently collecting ancestral materials that reflect the existence of the community. Preparations have been made for the collection of handcraft materials, which have been increasing in recent times in order to raise the identity.
President of Tharu Cultural Conservation Center Kapilvastu, Pawan Kumar Tharu, said that they are collecting materials especially by going to the houses of the Tharu caste in Buddhabhumi Municipality. He said that he has also collected handicrafts such as Dhakia, Delwa, Daekwa, Machiya, Hari, Karwa, Gagri, Helka, Harjaetha, Dehri, Delia, and other handicrafts.
Chairman Tharu said that he has started the work of decorating the city-level Tharu Museum in Buddhibhumi Municipality, which is going to be built at the cost of Karadai, along with the list donated by them. He claimed that there is a history of the community with dance culture including handicrafts, and costumes, which are being used for the purpose of registering the organization of local youths and awakening their identity.
Shiv Ghulam Tharu, co-secretary of the conservation center, said that the organization was established for the rights and interests of the Tharus. He said that the culture and traditions of the Tharu, which have been in danger for some time now, are disappearing because they cannot be transferred to the younger generation. He also said that it is necessary to increase access to politics along with studies, saying that cultural programs that reflect the identity of the Tharu caste will not be fulfilled.
Similarly, Tharu leader Mangal Prasad Tharu said that the time has come for the young generation to study society seriously. Stating that society will be left behind if they do not acquire education, he said that not modern dances that spread distortions in society, but the historical costumes that reflect the identity of the community should also increase the ability to play musical instruments. In recent times, the Tharu youth generation is more active in activities such as laborers, instead of getting an education
Experts say that there is.
