In Delhi, the city-based Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) and Delhi government yesterday co-hosted cultural programmes near Jehaz Mahal in historic Mehrauli area to mark the occasion.

"The Heritage Week (November 19-25) like the Heritage Day in April is one of the rare occasions to reach out to children and youth of the country to ingrain the values of preservation of heritage. Besides the cultural programme this year, we are focusing on our outreach programme and especially municipal schools.

"During these seven days our volunteers would go to as many schools as possible and develop in children a sense of appreciation and respect for the heritage they see around, but often either miss or feel ignorant about," Convener, INTACH Delhi Chapter, A G K Menon said.
