Mysuru, December 13:- “Students who learn art and culture become more intelligent than others,” said the director of Dance Department of Fine Arts College of University of Mysore (UoM) Dr Sheela Sridhar.
She was speaking after inaugurating Manasadhara Utsava, Inter-High School Classical Duet Dance and Debate Competition at JSS Public School at JP Nagar here on Thursday.
“Education plays a major role in the development of culture. Home is the first school for children. They don’t grow listening to English, Science, but by listening to Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagavata stories. Such children uphold the culture of the land. Dance is not about shaking legs and body. Participating and exhibiting your talent is more important than winning,” she said.
Deputy director of the Education Department of JSS Mahavidyapeetha H V Sheshagiri Rao, principal S L Nagendra and others were present. (MR/GK)
