BENGALURU: Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala stressed on the need to follow Indian culture and philosophies instead of blindly aping the West.
He was speaking at an award ceremony organised by Doordarshan in the city on Sunday.
“Blindly following the West will definitely have adverse effects. We must make efforts to protect Indian culture and heritage. India has a high standing across the world and we must not lose our identity. The status of women in the country also needs a fillip,” he said.
On the occasion, Vala conferred the ‘Doordarshan Chandana Award’ to 10 individuals and two organisations for their contributions to society.
