Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation via his radio programme, Mann Ki Baat, on Sunday, 29 July.

PM Modi began his address by expressing concern about the heavy rains lashing the country. He called for patience and responsibility in tackling the monsoon.

On Hima Das and Ekta Bhayan

The Prime Minister expressed adulation for India’s “brave daughters” – athletes Hima Das and Ekta Bhyan. Ekta won the gold and bronze medals in World Para Athletics Grand Prix 2018, held in Tunisia.

On Students

July and August are crucial for the youth, PM Modi said, addressing young Indians who are headed to college. He also congratulated Asharam Choudhury, the son of a rag-picker, for having cleared his Jodhpur AIIMS exam in his first attempt. The prime minister shed light on other young Indians who have overcome odds through their dedication.

On New India

PM Modi acknowledged the efforts of two young IIT professionals from Rae Bareilly, who used their skills and technology to develop the ‘Smart Gaon’ App. He lauded them for contributing towards the vision of “New India.”

He said that it was time to re-emphasise what Bal Gangadhar Tilak had once said: “Swaraj is my birth right and I shall have it,” pointing that everyone must be able to reap the benefits of good governance and development, the true foundation of “New India”.

On Saints and Festivals

Speaking of the Wari pilgrimage, PM Modi said that the “teachings of our saints continue to inspire us in the fight against social evils”. The pilgrimage is proof that India’s youth uphold and respect tradition, he says.

He paid tribute to Indian nationalist Lokmanya Tilak and his resistance of the British Rule. Tilak used Ganesh Utsav to promote values of harmony and equality against the British, he said.

Other highlights of Mann ki baat: 

  • Lokmanya Tilak evoked self-confidence amongst our countrymen and gave the slogan ‘Swaraj is our birth right and I shall have it’. Today is the time to say that good governance is our birth right and we will have it.
  • Every Indian should have access to good governance and positive results of development. It is the factoring in of this outreach that will create a new India
  • After 50 years of Tilak’s birth, on the same day, that is, July 23, another son of Mother India was born who sacrificed his life so that his countrymen could breathe freely in an atmosphere of freedom. I am talking about none other than Chandra Shekhar Azad
  • Just a few days ago, in the Junior Under-20 World Athletics Championship in Finland, India’s brave daughter and a farmer’s daughter Hima Das made history by winning the gold medal in the 400 m race event
  • Bhyan, another daughter of the country, has brought glory to the nation. Ekta, we all are proud of you. Ekta has won the gold and bronze medals in World Para Athletics Grand Prix 2018 held in Tunisia. Her achievement is all the more special because she has made the imposing challenges in her life the key to her success
  • Celebrate Ganesh Utsav with great enthusiasm and fervour whole heartedly but insist on keeping these celebrations eco-friendly
