I first would like to say that we have the most sublime cultural heritage and one that we all can be most proud of. Having said that... I would like to take point on the matter of email communications with both the Ministry of Culture and in particular the Archaeological Survey of India on how poor they are at responding to emails... the point of having an email system is to enhance communication with the public and from my experience both these division have failed miserably in responding. The 'average' rating is due to this one point.
We are fascinated towards western culture. But don't forget old is gold. Our old social arrangements, oath in religion, discipline, virtues, respect for elders and parents and so many positive attitudes are not forgettable.
Almost every literature or social event etc. produced/run in the past several years has been showing India's own Culture in poor light, exactly opposite to the fact. More factual research based inputs should be urgently brought out and published/implemented. Misinformation spread so far due to vested interests should be corrected. This has to be done faster than being done.
