A MONUMENT OF NEGLECT: QUILA MUBARAK AT CHHACHHRAULI

Masooma Rizvi

Abstract


This article highlights the priceless heritage in form of wall art that is decaying due to neglect. The overall objective is to preserve our culture and make each citizen aware of the rich treasures of the wall paintings of Punjab. To that end, restoration efforts can be linked with community development activities. Only if the community participates then slowly and surely our neglected monuments will come back to their original glory. A sense of belonging and a sense of ownership must be developed for this feeling and work to evolve. While this is crucial for our heritage it is also important for our National pride.
Awareness and immediate corrective action at every level with attention given to local bodies and the government is the only way our heritage will not get further lost to apathy and nature.
