``It was Acharya Suriji who inspired us to do something for Murshidabad after he was appalled at the dereliction of the district`s culture and heritage. The Azimganj-Jiaganj-
Murshidabad circuit, with its huge wealth of culture and heritage, is just waiting for the right kind of initiative and public support for its resurgence,`` he said.
