The universal spirit of the Vedic texts and the sublime beauty of Indian culture are enshrined in the immortal literary works of Vālmīki, Vyāsa, and Kālidāsa. The past, the present, and the future of Indian ethos are captured in the works of these three poets. This unbroken heritage deeply rooted in all strata of the society finds expression in art and craftsmanship spanning entire civilizational area of Bhārat. Dr. R. Ganesh gave a broad vision of this transcendental tradition through lectures and lecture-demonstrations.
