VIJAYAWADA:The disappearing manuscripts of Andhra Pradesh history and culture should be preserved, as most of them are left unprotected, felt deputy speaker Mandali Buddha Prasad.
Addressing a seminar on ‘History, culture and glory of Andhras’ conducted by the Andhra Pradesh Journalists’ Forum, at cultural center of Vijayawada, here Saturday, Buddha Prasad ensured that efforts would be made to preserve the history of this region to the next generation and explained the changes in the history of Andhras from past to the present.
However, he expressed his dissatisfaction over lack of historical knowledge among the youngsters and observed that the younger generation, these days, was more attracted towards the latest technology and completely neglecting the history and cultural.
“The youth should adopt the advancements in technology to compete in this world, but should not neglect our culture,” he stressed.
On the occasion, several paintings were exhibited depicting the history and culture of Andhras. Proposals were also submitted to establish a new modern library in the city with books on Andhra history, for the sake of younger generations.
