“It was during this very year that our country has successfully accomplished the Nuclear Triad, which means we are now armed with nuclear capabilities-in water, on land and in the sky as well.”
“India clinched a large number of medals in Asian Games and performed very well in Para Asian Games too. If I continue enumerating examples of ‘Purusharth’, character & mettle of Indians, or those of our collective endeavour, this episode of Mann Ki Baat will go on till the beginning of 2019.”
The PM gave special mentions to the 20-year-old Vedangi Kulkarni from Pune who became the fastest Asian to traverse the globe riding bicycle, 12-year-old Hanaya from Kashmir who won Gold Medal in Korea Karate Championship and 16-year-old Rajani who won a gold medal in the Junior Women’s Boxing Championship.
“In 2018, the world’s largest health insurance scheme ‘ Ayushaman India’ was introduced. Electricity was reached by every village in the country. The world’s dignitaries have believed India is taking the country out of poverty with record momentum.”
He advised citizens to make “positivity go viral and avoid negativity”. He recommended websites like positiveindia.com, thebetterindia.com to share positive news and samskritabharati. in to learn Sanskrit language.
If during course of Kumbh mela , if sanitation prevails along with reverence, then it will lead to a positive message reaching far and wide.This time every devotee will be able to have darshan of pious Akshayavat after holy dip.”
“This year we are celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of revered Bapu. We are fortunate that South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is going to be our chief guest. It was South Africa where our Mohan transformed into ‘Mahatma’.”
“Mandela said “Mahatma (Bapu) is an integral part of our history, because it was here that he used his first experiment with truth. He had developed philosophy of his satyagraha and his methods of struggle. “Mandela considered Bapu as his role model.”
“At times, government organizations are tagged as a regulator, but it is commendable that FSSAI has been working beyond this brief for public awareness and public education. A clean and healthy India will spell a prosperous India also.”
On the birth anniversary of Shri Gobind Singh, PM Modi said, “Shri Gobind Singh Ji believed that biggest service is to alleviate human suffering. He was a divine figure full of heroism, valor, courage, sacrifice and devotion. He had beatific knowledge of both weapons and Shaastras. He was an archer, and a pundit of Gurmukhi, Braj Bhasha, Sanskrit, Persian, Hindi and Urdu and many other languages. I once again bow paying my obeisance to him.”
