Guwahati, Nov 14 (IBNS): In order to take forward Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardev’s multifaceted personality and contribution in many hues to humanity at large, the Assam Government would produce a movie on the life and works of the great spiritual reformer.

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal directed the Cultural Affairs Department to initiate necessary steps for making this hallowed objective into a reality.

While reviewing the design and decorative structure of the proposed Srimanta Sankardev International Museum to be set up at Srimanta Sankardev Kalakshetra in Guwahati at a meeting in Janata Bhawan on Wednesday, Chief Minister Sonowal said that, Srimanta Sankardev’s personality stretched beyond the identity of a cultural connoisseur, spiritual reformer and religious preacher.

“He was a legend with universal thought and vision who laid the foundation of a pluralistic Assamese society by bringing people of different ethnicities together to form the greater Assamese identity. The young generation needs to know more about Sankardev’s towering personality, his contributions to world humanity as well as building Assamese culture and society. Along with the proposed international museum, the film would be an appropriate initiative to showcase his universal personality to world audience,” Sonowal said.

Moreover, laying stress on building the proposed international museum into a centre of spiritual learning, the Assam CM viewed that the structure should be able to induce devotional attachment among visitors and delineate a strong message on spirituality and universal values.
