If someone had told me an year ago that the IKS programme of the Govt of India would attract students from around India to present papers and posters, I'd have been sceptical. Too early to expect a good response I'd have thought. (1)
That is why it was such an eye-opener for me to view the posters and listen to presentations made by students in the 19-25 age group at the National Youth Conference held in Kerala recently. The diverse topics chosen by the children were truly amazing. (2)
If one student spoke about game theory from the perspective of Arthashastra, another one spoke about governance from the perspective of Thirukural. One girl took up Paaka Shastra and extracted from it the attributes needed in a good chef which were relevant even today. (3)

Recent posts on Twitter on Dr. Vasudeva Sharan Agrawalla has filled me with concern about our engagement with the past.

A Civilization distinguishes itself in
- Thought, Concepts in evolves
- Translating that into material life.

Thought simply does not accumulate. It flows, evolves, morphs into something else. Every generation passes its Past into the Future in two ways
- Pure Conceptual Unchanging Thought
- How it applied to specific times and how it can flow into the Future

Its a Relay.

Consequently, engaging with our immediate ancestral generations and their thought is very crucial to how we take things forward in in our times and pass it onto the future.

In this, the world of Kannada is lucky. This continuous flow of Thought is not seriously disturbed.
