Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has fulfilled a very important role in the cultural vitalization of the country. The need of the day is for our youngsters to appreciate all the good things that India has. Our culture, our language, our dance, our music, our compassion, our family values. These are all extra ordinary values. And Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan through its programmes has been able to communicate to our youngsters not just in India, in New York, in London, in many other cities as well as many countries. Second, I think Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has played a very important role in communicating to the society the importance of inclusive prosperity.
That is where the efforts of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan to start schools in slums, in providing opportunities to the bottom of the pyramid, in accessing high quality education becomes extremely important.
The third thing is the efforts of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan enhancing the quality of governance in the country by impressing upon the need for following the modern ideas combined very judiciously with the ideas that this great country has brought to fore through its 4000+ years of history. Therefore I would say that Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has been extremely successful in fulfilling an important role in revitalizing the cultural heritage of India.
