In the future, real and virtual mediums are likely to co-exist and artists should fully tap the potential of the virtual medium, he added.
The Vice President emphasized that our cultural treasure of dance, drama, and music is India’s greatest gift to the world and every effort should be made to preserve and propagate them.
