Respect Indian cultural heritage: Govind Namdev
Mumbai: Ahead of the release of his feature film titled “Decent Boy”, which is based on Indian education system, veteran actor Govind Namdev has urged students to respect Indian cultural heritage rather than miming western countries.
“The commercialisation of education in India has led to educational institutions aping the western education system, without paying heed to the necessity of the future Indian generation to put India on the world map as a superpower, or equipping the young generation with a formula for individualistic development and staying relevant by keeping up with the modern millennial society,” Govind said in a statement.
According to the “Bandit Queen” actor, it is very important for a person to have a strong sense of their own culture.
He said: “A balance should be maintained by cultivating a respect for Indian cultural heritage rather than miming western countries. In addition to a comprehensive modern education, providing the opportunity to know one’s cultural heritage will ensure a stronger sense of belonging amongst the youngsters which will lead a successful, content and wholesome life.”
In “Decent Boy”, Govind plays a father who is against the commercialisation of education. The film also features actor Ravi Kishan.
