On the occasion of Granthotsav, Chief Minister Shri Narendrabhai Modi said, “Physical Growth and prosperity can offer the glory and pride. But only the culture of art and literature can offer us the commingling divine experience.” Chief Minister called upon the scholars to create knowledge-encyclopedia that enshrines the eternal cultural glory and rich cultural legacy of our country. The Gujarati language and Gujarati literature would highlight ‘Satya-truth’ and the ‘Satva-basic elements’ of our literature, C.M added.

The terminology of growth and development may revolve around physical progress and prosperity. Chief Minister’s narratives gave succinct account of development that provides facilities, technological systems and physical glory. But the art and literature offers us a commingling divine experience in a true sense. Every society ought to make efforts to strengthen the base of Art& Literature. Without that the physical development becomes soul -less.
