|"Art in human heritage is a continuity of tradition and
innovation. Both these factors are interlinked not only in the material aspect but in the
metaphysical aspect of art too. If one is to ignore one of these aspects of art, his
concept of the same would biased and misformed. To avoid the error of self delusion which
causes great damage to the field of culture, the roots of the tree of heritage must not be
severed but nourished to help in bearing fruits for the present and posterity"
