Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the 72nd edition of his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’ on Sunday. This episode, being the last of 2020, will focus on the events of last year and plans for the next year.
On Friday, the prime minister asked for suggestions for his address and asked people to contact him on the MyGov website, the NaMo mobile app or to record his messages over the phone. “How would you summarize last year? What are you looking forward to the most in 2021? Share this and more at the 2020 final #MannKiBaat on December 27. Write to MyGov, the NaMo app or record your message at 1800-11-7800, ”tweeted PM Modi.
In the previous edition of the show, Prime Minister Modi had spoken about the importance of culture and said that it acts as an emotional recharge during crises. “An ancient idol of Devi Annapurna, which was stolen from a temple in Varanasi almost 100 years ago, is being brought from Canada to India. This coincided with Heritage Week, which gives culture enthusiasts the opportunity to look back at the past and discover important phases in history. Despite the Covid-19 crisis, we saw people celebrating Heritage Week in innovative ways, ”said Prime Minister Modi.
“The culture and scriptures of India have always been a center of attraction for the whole world. Some people came to India looking for them and stayed here for life. While some returned to their countries as cultural ambassadors for India, “he added.
The prime minister also stressed the need for a strong, vibrant and active alumni network and urged educational institutions to adopt innovative methods and develop creative platforms for alumni engagement. This was not only necessary in colleges and universities, but also in schools in our towns, he said.
