CHICAGO, IL (ANI) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inspired India to dream big and has shown the world that if acted with determination and perseverance, even bigger dreams can be achieved, said Indian Ambassador Taranjit Singh Sandhu at an event here.
He was speaking as the chief guest at the ‘Sadhbhavana event’ organised by NID Foundation. He launched two books, ‘Heartfelt – The Legacy of Faith’ and ‘Modi@20: Realism Meets Livery’ written on Modi, highlighting his relations with Sikhs, on the occasion.
He said that while the first book depicts the good governance model of Modi, the second book describes the initiatives taken by the Prime Minister for the uplift of the Sikh community.
Praising the NID Foundation, Sandhu said, “The book ‘Heartfelt – The Legacy of Faith’ by NID Foundation is a wonderful and sincere effort to display the respect and affection of the Prime Minister for Punjab and the Sikh community.” He added, “American oncologist Dr Bharat Barai’s second book, ‘Modi@20: Realism Meets Livery’, is a compilation of a few chapters written by intellectual and domain experts, which talks about a unique governance model in Gujarat and the unprecedented transformation of the nation in the last 20 years.”
Speaking on the occasion, Art of Living’s Sri Sri Ravishankar said, “India is at a very crucial stage of transformation, where from the development of infrastructure to reaching out to many other poorest sections of the society and to providing the ease of business to all, the progress and development made by the Prime Minister are phenomenal. I appeal to those who have not been to India in the last few years, please come to India and see the new, modern India.”
Stressing US-India relations, Senator Ron Johnson said that US-Indo bilateral relations have improved since Modi came to power in India. Chief Patron of NID Foundation, Satnam Singh Sandhu also thanked Modi for the pro-Sikh work of the present government. Others present at the event included, the Chancellor of Wisconsin-Parkside University, Dr Deborah L. Ford, Speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly, prominent Indian American businessman Darshan Singh Dheewar and Indian MP Hans Raj Hans were present.
This news is an old song and dance story crafted by Indian governments of all persuasions. The bottom line is the life of an average Indian has made only a modest improvement at a tremendous cost to the environment, interfaith relations, communal disputes, and treatment of Harijans. The democratic foundations have been shaken from their roots by the government’s heavy-handedness and the mistreatment of minorities. The current government has refined the tactics and bullied the media into photoshopping the narrative of its choice. It continues to spend excessive money on crafting unbelievable stories of development and growth that do not exist. Propaganda has become an instrument of choice to fight the truth.June 27, 2022
