The books penned by Shri Bhagyesh Jha, Secretary – Sports, Youth & Cultural Activities Department, are ‘Samay Stotra’, ‘Aamukh’ and ‘Sankochayelu Maun’. On this occasion, CM Smt Patel complimented Shri Bhagyeshbhai for his thought provoking books and said that she knows Bhagyeshbhai as an able administrator as well as a litterateur.

Giving information about the books, she said that ‘Samay Stotra’, an essay collection, portrays everyday life and echoes the shrinking existence of Gujarati language in today’s information era. ‘Aamukh’ is a compilation of articles written by bhagyeshbhai in ‘Gujarat’, the biweekly magazine of Gujarat Government and ‘Sankochayelu Maun’ is a wonderful poetry collection.

CM Smt Patel pointed out that various forms of arts should get the opportunity of expression in the society. We must preserve and revive our magnificent ancient heritage of art and culture, she added. She also mentioned about ‘Vanche Gujarat’ campaign initiated by Shri Narendra Modi. She appealed to create an atmosphere to inculcate morale values in children with the help of illustrated children literature.
