Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said the government was securing the knowledge in India’s ancient scriptures and manuscripts for the future through technology.
Inaugurating the ‘Vedic Heritage Portal’ created by the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) in New Delhi, he said that with the help of this, the younger generation would be able to carry forward the knowledge and tradition of the Vedas and the Upanishads.
The IGNCA comes under of Ministry of Culture.
Mr. Shah also inaugurated a virtual museum ‘Kala Vaibhav’ based on 64 arts, through which, he said, the world would be more familiar with India’s architecture, painting, drama, music, and thereby the rich history of the country’s glorious culture.
The portal is a one-stop solution for common users and researchers seeking any information regarding ‘Vedic’ heritage. It gives detailed information about oral traditions, textual tradition in form of published books/manuscripts, or implements, the IGNCA said.
