Imphal, March 28, 2018 (DIPR): Education Minister Shri Thokchom Radheshyam Singh said that practice of righteousness and fulfilling one’s responsibility can enrich the morals in human while speaking as Chief Guest at the inaugural function of the Two-Day National Seminar on “Purvanchal Mein Bhakti Andolan” organised by the Department of Hindi, Manipur University, Canchipur, and the Central Institute of Hindi, Agra at the Court Hall of Manipur University..
Dharma, he added is the duty, the responsibility that one has to fulfil as a human being as a son-daughter, father-mother, brother-sister and towards the society for the betterment of one and all. The failure to carry out duty by human, leads to the rise in problems in the society and family.
The Minister said change is the only permanent thing in the world. With spread of Bhakti Andolan in the country, different religions also reached the state experiencing both the positive and negative effect. However the positive effect has made huge imprint in terms of art, culture and tradition of the state. Thus, he said, in Manipur the Lainingthou Sanamahi and the Hinduism co – exists together.
