Secular Educational and Research Centre (SEARCH) was formed in Hyderabad involving intellectuals.
A new and novel socio-cultural association by name SEARCH was formed in Hyderabad on October 22. Secular Educational and Research Centre (SEARCH) founder general secretary JL Narayana (78), said, “The organisation hopes to conduct symposia and lectures and research on Indian culture, history and socio-economic development and also publishing books and booklets at reasonable prices.
Secularism is the concept which vitalises the integrated values in modern society. But the trend of multi-pluralistic society is crippled by the new phraseology of pseudo-secularism. India is having multi-dimensional aspects of political processes starting from religious ethos to modern positive secularism. However the religiosity of Bharatiya society comes across different facet of secular norms. Especially in Bharat from the emergence of the metaphysical society to present materialistic aspects of society the religion was misinterpreted at various levels depending upon who conceives about this, Shri Narayana said.
The word ‘Secular’ was put in single inverted commas stressing that they support the ideas and deeds of President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. The Managing Committee members of Search are already working in different fields and its tagline is 'Think new. Together we grow!' The programme on Vijayadashami Day began with lecture-demonstration on Kuchipudi classical dance of AP by Dandi Venkata Sreenivasa Sastry, a great singer working with Central University of Hyderabad under the stewardship of Prof. Anuradha Jonnalagadda and other students under her. Leading editors of Andhra Pradesh dailies Shri MVR Shastry, Shri Valleshwar and Dr Vijayasaradhi were also present on the occasion. -Nagaraj Rao
