India must educate youth on ‘pluralistic heritage’: Vice President

AMN / NEW DELHI

VP at MANNUThe Vice President of India, M. Hamid Ansari has said that educating youth about the value of ‘pluralistic heritage’ is the best way to preserve India’s heritage.

He was addressing an event to mark the celebration of World Heritage Day, organized by the Indian Trust for Rural Heritage and Development, here today.

The Vice President said: “Indian culture is distinguished from others in respect of its continuity and heterogeneity, its accommodating ethos and its composite, plural character”.

He further said that India has played host to cultural streams from different parts of the world. In the course of time they were assimilated and adapted to life in India, he added.

The Vice President said that few people celebrate diversity and plurality the way India does and despite this diversity, people in India have lived in harmony for centuries and will continue to do so.

“Diversity of Indian cultural landscape is a result of not just toleration of newer and different elements, but of its acceptance. There may be reason to believe that the current tide of globalization would not submerge the Indian cultural identity but would add an Indian dimension to a globalizing culture”, he stressed.

“Culture is more than just song and dance or architecture. It is the cumulative deposit of knowledge, experience, beliefs, values, attitudes, meanings, hierarchies, religion, notions of time, roles, spatial relations, concepts of the universe, and material objects and possessions acquired by a group of people in the course of generations through individual and group striving”.
