Workshop on Oral Tradition of Dha-Hanu

 Dha-Hanu is a remote area consisting of four major villages and small hamlets situated on both sides of the banks of Sindhu (River Indus). The four major villages are known as Dha, Hanu, Garkhan and Darchik. The inhabitants of these villages have preserved racial purity down the centuries. Their cultural practices are very old. They worship the forces of nature. They call their gods as Yendrin (Indra), Narayan, Bhumi Devata etc. This world they call Saket. These are some of the examples from the terminology used by them, which is very interesting and indicates connections with the Vedic era also to some extent. On the name of modern development such belief systems are now getting extinct day by day and the region of Dha-Hanu is also getting affected by this development. Documenting the conversations will facilitate a rare opportunity to have an insight into the belief system which is expected to uncover the mysteries of their origin and throw light on their cultural practices.
