Sant Ram Udasi stands out in revolutionary tradition

‘Udasi stands out in revolutionary tradition’

The Sant Ram Udasi Memorial International Trust today organised seminar “From Culture to Politics in context of Sant Ram Udasi” on the 70th birth anniversary of the revolutionary Punjabi poet.

Key speaker Sumail Singh Sidhu of Department of History, Khalsa College Delhi said Sant Ram Udasi was poet of anti-establishment tradition. Udasi stood tall in Punjab’s rich revolutionary tradition, he stressed.

Tracing history of culture and literature embodying revolutionary spirit in folklore, Sufism, the Gurbani and revolutionary literature, he referred to ongoing debate on the poetry and politics of Sant Ram Udasi and Paash stating ‘doctored’ antagonism and other distortions were politically motivated.

These distortions were aimed at appropriating the poet’s legacy and his poetry in favour of terrorist movement of the 1980s. Iqbal Udasi, daughter of Sant Ram Udasi, started the talk with a song of Udasi.
