The Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu today called for inculcating reading habit among children from a young age to strengthen their foundational literacy. He wanted  educationists, intellectuals, parents and teachers to bestow special attention in promoting the reading habit among children.He underlined the importance of reading in the  development of children’s personalities and to wean them away from excessive use of gadgets.Shri Naidu stressed that schools should make the fascinating world of books come  alive in classrooms and called for more authors to write books for children. These books should be written and illustrated keeping in view the children’s varying interests and  abilities, he said.Speaking at the 600th birth anniversary event of Adikabi Sarala Das, the Vice President highlighted the fact that the Mahabharata written by Sarala Das has not  dimmed among Odia people even after hundreds of years because of his unique style and diction. Reflecting on this, Shri Naidu said that this shows the importance of writing and  communicating with the people in simple, colloquial language.In this context, Shri Naidu suggested the administration and the judiciary to use the local language increasingly to  effectively communicate with people. He also called for the medium of instruction up to primary school to be in the mother tongue or local language. He also referred to studies  that have shown the advantages of mother tongue in early schooling.

Hailing Sarala Das as not just Adi Kabi, but also as Adi Aitihasika and Adi Bhougolbith, Shri Naidu said Sarala Das was a pioneer in democratizing literature as he had used  colloquial language as early as the 15th century. Comparing Sarala Das with Kabir and Yogi Vemana, Shri Naidu said that great poets have an extraordinary ability to  communicate complex emotions and ideas in a simple language and leave a lasting impression on a wide cross-section of readers.The Vice President also noted how Sarala  Das’s characterization of heroes and heroines in his Mahabharata inspired many later authors to take a character or two and weave a full novel around them. Sarala’s women  characters are strong and endowed with remarkable qualities of head and heart, and they act with great courage and confidence, he observed.Hailing Sarala Das as a literary  genius, who earned the title of ‘The Father of Odia Language’, he said that he has enriched Odia language and culture. “No wonder, Odia came to be recognized by the  Government of India as a Classical Language of India with Sarala Das standing as a beacon’, he added.On this occasion, Shri Naidu complimented Shri Biswa Bhushan  Harchandan, Governor of Andhra Pradesh, for being conferred with the prestigious ‘Kalinga Ratna’. Earlier in the day, Shri Naidu planted a sapling at the Raj Bhawan,  Bhubaneswar.Shri Ganeshi Lal, Hon’ble Governor of Odisha, Shri Biswa Bhusan Harichandan, Hon’ble Governor of Andhra Pradesh, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister  of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Shri Pratap Jena, State Minister, Dr. Pravakar Swain, President, Sarala Sahitya Sansad, Shri Sahadev Sahoo, Former Chief Secretary, members of  Sarla Sahitya Sansad and others were present during the event.
