"For me, Delhi's heritage value are its tombs. These tombs are indeed priceless. I hope they remain forever," said Sudeepti Selvam. The class 6 student of Sardar Patel Vidyalaya just echoed the sentiments of scores of students from 35 schools across Delhi, as part of a heritage awareness campaign at a function on Wednesday, where chief minister Sheila Dikshit released a set of tourism literature.
The tourism literature, has been prepared by the Indian National Trust for Arts and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), ahead of Delhi's nomination as a World Heritage City by UNESCO. The students also took a pledge to preserve the heritage of the city.
It comprises books on heritage walks, maps with details about heritage and places of tourist interest. The posters and paintings prepared by students of these 35 schools were converted into greeting cards and printed posters.
