Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that keeping humanism at the core of our policies further saying that the discussions with respect to global growth can not be restricted to a few wanting a bigger table and broader agendas.
While addressing the India-Japan Samwad, PM Modi said, “Discussions on global growth cannot happen only between a few. The table must be bigger. The agenda must be broader. Growth patterns must follow a human centric approach. And, be in harmony with our surroundings.”
Modi further added, “In the past, humanity often took the oath of confrontation instead of collaboration. From Imperialism to World Wars. From the arms race to the space race. We had dialogues but they were aimed at pulling others down. Now, let us rise together… We must keep humanism at the core of our policies. We must keep harmonious co-existence with nature as the central pillar of our existence.”
PM Modi, at the beginning of his speech, presented a proposal for building a library for archiving the Buddhist literature, stating that the library will be a platform for research and dialogue.
“Samwad should be one that spreads the spirit of positivity, unity and compassion across our planet. That too, at a time when we need it most. This is the first Samvad of a new decade — it is happening at a critical moment of human history. Our actions today will shape the discourse in the coming times,” PM Modi said.
Modi termed this decade for nurturing young minds who will add value to humanity for the future. He said, “This decade and beyond will belong to the societies that play a premium on learning and innovating together. This decade will be about nurturing bright young minds, who will add value to the humanity in the times to come. Learning should be such that furthers innovation. After all, innovation is the cornerstone of human empowerment.”
