We are not merely reforming India but are transforming India: PM Modi
An India free from poverty, terrorism, corruption, communalism, casteism is being created: PM
Good infrastructure is no longer about roads and rail only. It includes several other aspects that bring a qualitative change in society: PM
We have not shied away from taking decisions that are tough. For us, the nation is bigger than politics: PM
In addition to infrastructure, we are focussing on infraculture, which will help our hardworking farmers: PM Modi

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today addressed the Indian community in Yangon, Myanmar.

“You represent thousands of years of the shared culture and civilisation, geography and history, aspiration and achievements of the great sons and daughters of India and Myanmar,” the Prime Minister said, addressing the gathering. The Prime Minister elaborated on the rich spiritual traditions of Myanmar.

The Prime Minister said that the Indian diaspora is like “Rashtra-doot” for India. He said that the global recognition of Yoga is the achievement of the diaspora, who took it to all corners of the world.

 “When I meet you, I also feel that communication of our people living in foreign countries with government authorities in India is not a one way traffic any more,” the Prime Minister said.

“We are not merely reforming our country, we are transforming it,” the Prime Minister asserted, adding that an India free from poverty, terrorism, corruption, communalism, and casteism is being created. 

The Prime Minister said that the Union Government in India is focusing on infrastructure. He said that good infrastructure is no longer about roads and railways alone - it includes several other aspects that bring about a qualitative change in society. He said that the Government has not shied away from taking decisions that are tough.

The Prime Minister said GST is ushering in a new culture across the nation. He said that the people of India have the confidence that India can be transformed and we can break free from some of the evils that entered our system.

The Prime Minister said that people-to-people ties are the strength of India-Myanmar relations.

Mr. Phyo Min Thein, Chief Minister of Yangon Region, was present at the gathering.

S Aishwarya and S Saundarya, great grand-daughters of Bharat Ratna M.S. Subbulakshmi meets PM

S Aishwarya and S Saundarya, great grand-daughters of Bharat Ratna M.S. Subbulakshmi, today called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with their parents, V Shrinivasan and Geetha Shrinivasan.

Ms. Aishwarya and Ms. Saundarya briefly performed the "Maithreem Bhajatha." This is a benediction which was also rendered by M.S. Subbulakshmi herself in October 1966, at the United Nations.

The benediction was composed in Sanskrit by Acharya Shri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati of Kanchi.

It is an anthem for universal friendship and world peace, which was sung by M.S. Subbulakshmi, in most of her subsequent concerts, after the UN concert. It ends with the words “Srey o bhooyat sakala jananam” - Let grace and happiness abound for all mankind.
