Sanskrit scholar ‘Maha Mahopadyaya’ Viswanatha Gopala Krishna Sastry has called upon the public to encourage and protect the cultural heritage of the country and asked the children to feel proud for being born in the great nation with long history and rich heritage.

Speaking on the occasion of the World Heritage Day organised by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan at Anam Kalakendram here on Thursday, he said that the country possesses rich cultural heritage and this has to be shared with coming generations for nations’ development. Mr. Gopalakrishna quoted Sanskrit slokas in which importance of travelling and meeting with intellectuals was stressed.

M. Francis, Assistant Director, State Information Centre, who was the chief guest, said that the fundamental values based on Indian culture and heritage have to be protected and study of historical monuments would help students to improve their knowledge.

He also suggested students to emulate the great leaders who fought for the nations’ development. G.S. Negi, Dean of BVB, said that heritage walk was proposed to the students of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan to create awareness about the Indian culture and heritage.

He also said that a science centre would be established in Rajahmundry with the cooperation of the municipal corporation. V.S.S.
