Pop quiz - who was Vasistha? Uh-huh? He was the sage who taught the sons of Dasaratha
the basic fundas of life - the scriptures, warfare, ruling and all other stuff
that princes need to know. The Vasistha Cultural Association is working on similar
lines - it encourages people who try hard to create awareness of our culture,
tradition, scriptures and the Vedic concepts.
Founded in the year 1984, the Association has also been encouraging meritorious students and individuals who work hard in their domains. Each year, the organization felicitates some eminent personalities who have been helpful to our society through their endeavors. And as part of this, on the anniversary of its inception today, it is felicitating 3 distinguished personalities - Dr. C Ganguly, Chief Executive of NFC; Dr. P Viswanatham, Professor; and Uma Rama Rao, Kuchipudi exponent.
There will also be a Veda Pathanam (recital of the Vedas) by V Venkataramana Sarma Ghanapati and 5 other Ghanapatis, and a Kuchipudi recital by Soujanya, a disciple of Uma Rama Rao.
