With a plan to educate understudies on the antiquated legacy of India and its financial aspects, a recommendation to begin another part-time course in Cultural Economics has been moved to the Banaras Hindu University (BHU).
This proposal was supported by Professor Prof. of the Department of Economics, BHU. Manisha A Mehrotra, who explained that the syllabus has a lot of potentials, increases the interest of both Indian and foreign students in the country and its culture. She said that linking the cultural economy with the current mainstream economy can give a boost to the latter, while the former has maintained.
The study of cultural economics is a somewhat new field and not a subject of much conversation in India. Its study encompasses everything associated with our ancient heritage, including art, culture, literature architecture, monuments, and economic aspects.
Beneath the cultural economy, we can integrate all these aspects with the mainstream economy and retain them.
Mehrotra explained, attaching this with the local economy like the handicraft and handlooms can boost the marginalized civilization.
The proposal is still at the department level and after discussion, a conventional presentation can be made to the Executive Council, which will have to formulate a final decision on the course, As per the university officials.
