Even this challenging situation would ease
Honesty is the best policy.
This information is definitely to be taught in schools and colleges as a compulsory subject so that the younger generation will know about our culture and tradition. In some families by virtue of their parents and grandparents the children are able to know about it. But many are missing. So definitely it should be a portion in the curriculum
Recently what I have observed is the social media is doing a lot of propaganda for this which is most welcome. However if we make everybody to study this subject, the outcome will be definitely good. .
This is an unfortunate scenario and we must understand that a person is known by his culture and not by the things he has copied from other countries and their cultures.
We have got a magnificent and knowledgeable system of cultural legacy in our country and we must honour and respect it if we want to say with proud in front of the world that look here, we are Indians and we are proud of our heritage.
The school syllabus should be biased to our culture and anything related to it. There is a lot of mathematics in our Vedas and Upnishads. There are already books on Vedic Mathematics and they mesmerise the readers with their simplicity but power to solve mathematical problems. These things can be easily mentioned in between the usual syllabus of schools so that students get familiar with these highlights of our culture.
We must preserve our culture and getting any opportunity try to convince our youngsters its importance and need in our life.
Knowledge is power.
