congratulations Deepakji,
In my view there are many items which could be addede and made this effort alive. Knowledge or culture has not been important in dead terms like remains, architecture,etc. Once up on a time all has been alive with personal and social practices and still the great heritage is not confined within dead items. in my view if we are realy serious we must include alive items and try to conserve those.For example Dance, drama, worship,faith, festival, deities and there followers, cultural inter religious excange and impact.
