Mann Ki Baat: From farmers to artists, read here 10 big things of PM Modi in ‘Mann Ki Baat’
New Delhi: Prime Minister PM Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the people of the country in his monthly radio program Mann Ki Baat. This is the 69th episode of PM Modi’s monthly radio program. Earlier, PM Modi addressed the countrymen on 30 August through the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ program. The program is broadcast on AIR, Doordarshan’s entire network and the Narendra Modi App.
PM Modi said that we must have realized that the methods that our forefathers had enacted are still important and when there is no, then we feel so lacking. He said, “In every family, some elderly or older people used to tell stories of the family, and they fill the house with new inspiration, new energy.”
The Prime Minister said, even in the era of Corona crisis, the agricultural sector has shown its strength. The stronger the farmers of the country, the stronger the village, the more independent the country becomes. The Prime Minister said that the foundation of a self-reliant India will be built only with the strength of the farmers. If the farmer is strong then India will become self-sufficient. The PM said, it is said here that the one who is attached to the ground, he remains adamant even in the biggest storms. In this difficult time of Corona, our agricultural sector, our farmer is a living example of this. Today, farmers have got the freedom to sell produce on their own. In recent times, these areas have liberated themselves from many restrictions, have tried to break many myths.
Remembering the martyr Bhagat Singh, the Prime Minister said, Bhagat Singh’s passion should be in our hearts. Bhagat Singh has a huge contribution in the independence of the country. I bow to Shaheed Veer Bhagat Singh. The British government was frightened by the 23-year-old man.
- The Prime Minister said, a farmer brother of Haryana told me how there was a time when he used to have trouble selling his fruits and vegetables outside the market. But in 2014, fruits and vegetables were removed from the APMC Act, benefitting them and fellow farmers around. These farmers have the power to sell their fruits and vegetables anywhere, to anyone and this power is the basis of their progress.
- Prime Minister Modi said, I lived as a family for a very long time in my life. It was my life. New villages, new people, new families every day. Storytelling, or anecdote in India, has been a rich tradition. We have a tradition of fiction here. This is the ancient method of telling religious stories.
-PM Modi further said that in every family, some elderly, older people used to narrate stories of the family and fill the house with new inspiration, new energy. The stories reveal the creative and sensitive side of people, revealing them. To feel the power of the story, when a mother is telling the story to make her young child sleep or feed her.
He said that in this period of Corona, the whole world is going through many changes. Today, when two yards distance has become an essential requirement, this crisis period has also worked to bring family members closer and closer.
- He said that we must have realized that the methods that our forefathers had enacted are still important and when they are not, then we feel so lacking. In every family, some elderly or older people used to tell stories of the family, and they fill the house with new inspiration, new energy.
