"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"
