VIJAYAWADA: Tirumala Tirupati Devsathanam’s (TTD) Dharma Prachara Mandali West Godavari secretary TS Ravi Kumar has encouraged students to recognise the great cultural heritage of India which has been a seat of higher learning for the past 5,000 years.

Speaking at the TTD Dharma Prachara Mandali’s Bharat Darshan programme at Siddartha Mahila Kalasala in the city Friday, Ravi Kumar said that it was due to the sacrifices made by the freedom fighters that Indians were living freely today and reminded the students about great personalities Sushrutha, Charaka, Aryabhatta, Rani Rudrama, Jhansi Rani, Bhagat Singh, Mokashagundam Vishweshwaraya and others.

Saying that India’s achievements in various fields and cultural heritage were being ignored due to Western influence, Ravi Kumar urged the students to work hard to come up in their careers and life and strive to uphold the great Indian cultural heritage.

The Bharat Darshan programme has been designed to educate Indian students about the nation’s inspiring heritage and highlight the great Indian achievers and diversity.

About 11,000 students participated in the programme till date across the state, TTD youth coordinator N Sivaji said.

Siddartha Mahila Kalasala principal T Vijayalakshmi and Dharma Prachara Mandali vice-president B Venkata Bola Koteswara Rao participated in the programme attended by about 3,500 students. The Bharat Darshan programme was also held at Vivekananda High School in Singhnagar.
