NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Sunday through his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’. Previously, on November 17, PM Modi had invited suggestions from the people, for the 71st edition of the show.
‘Mann ki Baat’ is the Prime Minister’s monthly radio show for the nation, broadcast on the last Sunday of each month.
Here are the top quotes from PM Modi:

  • I want to share some good news with all of you at the beginning of Mann Ki Baat. All Indians will be proud to know that a very old Devi Annapurna idol will be brought to India from Canada. This idol was stolen from Varanasi and smuggled out of India about 100 years ago.
  • The return of the Mata Annapurna idol also coincides with World Heritage Week held a few days ago.
  • Despite the crown this time, we saw people celebrate World Heritage Week in an innovative way. With the help of technology, culture works as an emotional recharge. Today, many museums and libraries in the country are working to make their collection completely digital.
  • I was recently reading about an interesting project. There is an island called Svalbard in northern Norway. An ‘Arctic World Archive’ project has been launched on this island. Valuable asset data has been stored in this file. Information on the heritage of the Ajanta caves has also been digitized and will be available in this archive.
  • November 12 marked the beginning of the celebrations for the 125th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Salim Ali ji. He has done illustrious work in the field of Bird Watching. I have always been an avid fan of Bird Watchers for their patience. Many bird watching societies are also active in India. You should also connect with this topic.
  • The culture of India and the Shaastras, knowledge has always been a center of attraction for the whole world. Many people came to India to discover them, to study them. I had the opportunity to know the work of Jonas Masetti also known as Vishwanath.
  • Jonas studied Vedanta Philosophy in India and stayed at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Coimbatore for four years. Jonas has another specialty: He’s using technology to spread his message.
  • New Zealand’s newly elected MP, Dr. Gaurav Sharma, was sworn in in Sanskrit. The spread of Indian culture by the Indians fills us with pride. Through Mann Ki Baat, I extend my best wishes to Gaurav Sharma ji.
  • Tomorrow, November 30, we will celebrate the 551st Prakash Parv, the anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. All over the world, the influence of Guru Nanak Dev ji is clearly visible.
  • Shri Guru Nanak ji had stayed at Lakhpat Gurudwara Sahib in Kutch during his Udaasi, his spiritual journeys. I was lucky enough to visit Lakhpat Gurudwara Sahib when I was not even CM. I used to feel immensely energized being there.
