Vice President calls for promotion and preservation of our rich linguistic and cultural heritage
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday emphasized on the need to preserve the rich cultural and linguistic heritage and urged everyone to make efforts individually and collectively for it.
The Vice President made these remarks at the virtual release of the 100th book of the Vanguri Foundation of America. The book titled as ‘7va Prapancha Sahiti Sadassu Sabha Vishesha Sanchika’ is based on the 7th World Telugu Literary Summit organised by the Vanguri Foundation of America in collaboration with other Telugu cultural organisations in October last year.
Congratulating the editors, authors and publishers for dedicating the book to renowned singer S P Balasubrahmanyam, the Vice President called for more such initiatives to promote our rich cultural heritage. He also lauded the Vanguri Foundation for organizing Telugu language conferences during the past 27 years.
Noting that emergence of internet and digital technologies provides people with new opportunities for preservation and development of the languages, the Vice President called for making effective use of these technologies. He said, the day our language is forgotten, our culture will also disappear. Mr Naidu said, our ancient literature should be brought closer to the youth.
