PM addresses nation through Mann ki Baat: Top 10 takeaways

Today the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi addressed the nation through the 37th episode of the monthly radio broadcast, Mann ki Baat. Starting with coming to a close of the festive season to remembering a memorable Diwali spent with the Indian Army, he spoke on a variety of topics. Here are the top 10 highlights of today’s address in the words of the Prime Minister:

          • India is the land of ‘Vasudhiva Kutumbakam‘, which means the whole world is our family. It is because of this belief that India has been actively contributing to the vital initiatives led by the United Nations. India has always spread the message of peace, unity and goodwill.
          • The entire nation salutes the courageous soldiers who, with their strong determination and acts of bravery, secure our borders and keep the nation safe. It was an honor for me that I got to spend Diwali with our brave jawans. Our soldiers are not only safeguarding our country at the borders, but they play a vital role in the UN peacekeeping missions throughout the world.
          • India’s role is not limited to just peacekeeping operations, but India is also training peacekeepers in about 85 countries. Being from this land of Mahatma Gandhi and Gautama Buddha, our brave peacekeepers have conveyed the message of peace and harmony around the world.

        • From the days of ‘Khadi for Nation‘, we came to see ‘Khadi for Fashion‘, and now the country is moving towards ‘Khadi for Transformation‘. Khadi and handloom are empowering the poor by bringing positive and qualitative changes in their lives

      • Diseases like Diabetes are now also affecting the young. Yoga will help our children from lifestyle disorders.
      • Greetings to children on Children’s Day that is celebrated on our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru‘s birthday. Every child is a hero in the making of a ‘New India’.
      • The British not only ruled our country, but also undermined and treated our culture as inferior. It was Sister Nivedita who revived the pride of Indian traditions. She worked to unite people by awakening national consciousness.

  • Be it Hockey, badminton, football or cricket, India has been steadily rising globally in sports. Our sportspersons have made the nation proud. I had the privilege of watching one of games during the FIFA U-17 World Cup tournament which was held in India.
  • Guru Nanak Devji is not only the first Guru of the Sikhs, but also a ‘Jagat Guru’. He thought about the welfare of all of humanity, treated everyone equally and emphasized empowerment and dignity of women. Through his acts, he showed the path of truth, sacrifice and devotion.

  • Sardar Patel shaped the Nation as whole. He united the entire country. On Sardar Patel’s birth anniversary on October 31, let us all ‘Run for Unity‘… On the occasion of Sardar Sahib’s birth anniversary, ‘Run for Unity’ will be organised across the country on October 31. I urge everyone – men, women, children and youth to participate in the event.
