In this changing world, it is necessary to save our rich heritage and culture – Padmashree B Jayashree during Alva’s Traditional day
Moodbidri: It is important to learn about our culture in order to exchange the traditional aspects of different religions of the country said Padmashree awardee B Jayashree in the Traditional day function held at Alva’s college, Mijar.
“In this changing world, it is necessary to save our rich heritage and culture for our future generations. We must strive hard and stand firm for our regional languages to spread our cultural heritage for the next generations,” she added.
Presiding over the function Alva’s Education Foundation Chairman, Dr M Mohan Alva said, “Youth must have clarity between beliefs and superstitions. We cannot consider all the traditions as myths. We must appreciate some of the beliefs of our culture and traditions to spread and save the rich cultural heritage of our country. All religions have their own diverse aspects in terms of food, language, costume, dance forms and music. These traditional aspects and their beauty will remain long-lasting only if we practice it in our daily life”. Dr Mohan Alva added and said, Technology should not take over culture.
On this auspicious occasion, the new logo of the foundation was launched by the chief guest Padmashree B Jayashree by sprinkling colours on the magic art.
