Heritage Education and Communication Service


HECS has produced several publications with interesting information and ready-to-do heritage and creative activities:

'Hands on Heritage'(a Teacher's Manual)
designed HECS to provide teachers with ideas for over 100 projects and creative heritage programmes for schools

Indian Culture for Everyone
is a fully illustrated book designed as an introduction to the history of India’s architecture, painting, sculpture and crafts for young people

Capital Story'
an attractive palm size guide to the buildings of New Delhi

HECS brings out a quarterly newsletter called Young INTACH for Heritage Club members across the country. This theme-based interactive newsletter carries articles, drawings and poems by children for children on heritage issues, natural, built, living and intangible heritage. It is heartening to know children's concern for their country amidst a sea of apathy.
