Mumbai, Aug 21: “The essence of our life lies on the upbringing of our ancestors.  Hence, it is essential to respect our ancestors and elders.  Their guidance serves as moral blessing.  Those who respect them will have long life.  It is the religious norm to convey best wishes.  One should serve with total honesty. Better results are assured, if one discharges his duties to the best of his conscience.  The youth are not justified of their notion that yakshagana seems to be only dance for them.  Moreover it is the duty of the elders to educate the youth on the significance of yakshagana, how it evolved for ages, cultural values besides guarding the sanctity of yakshagana”, said Sadashiv Shanthi.
