• Gujarat is not only competing but also partnering with China • All the humanitarian forces should come together to fight terrorism • Zero tolerance is required to check terrorism

A group of 27 students of Yale School of Management paid courtesy visit to Chief Minister Narendra Modi and discussed various aspects of Gujarat’s multi-sectorial growth.

In a reply to a question from the students Mr. Modi said that India can not only compete but can also partner with China. Gujarat and China both are on top in manufacturing sector. But, at the same time both the regions are also developing partnerships. Many Chinese companies are now coming forward to set up their projects in Gujarat. Similarly entrepreneurs from Gujarat are also developing industrial relationship with China.

Chief Minister expressed his desire that the three major countries of Asia – India, China and Japan create their influence over world economy in 21st century.

In a reply to the question related to the strategy for curbing corruption Mr. Modi said Gujarat has adopted a strategy of policy-driven governance to keep corruption at bay. Biases do not have place in decision making as the policies are transparent. This helps to put a stop on corruption.

On a question on naxalism he said that economical and social inequality is not the only reason behind naxalism. The naxalism is emerging as Maoism in north-east regions of India and have its focus on seizing political power through weapons.

Chief Minister also gave outline of the state government’s work in education sector. The number of universities has increased to 41 from 11 during last decade. There are 12 universities which are taking new initiatives for human resource development, he said.

All the humanitarian forces should come together to fight terrorism. Unfortunately the country like USA is weighing India and Pakistan with different scales in the matter of terrorism. The terrorism does not have any religion or community. Zero tolerance is required to check it, he said.

Gujarat is emerging as a model for growth polity and it is an answer to all the problems India is facing currently.

Talking about Chief Minister’s dynamic leadership Prof. Shyamsundar said the students of Yale University are highly impressed with Gujarat’s growth.

Pranaam Amma

Respected Dignitaries on the Dais

Namaskaram!

On this pious and sacred occasion, I offer my deep regards to Amma. I also pray to the Almighty to give long life and good health to her. She is the guiding light for millions of devotees. Not only that, she has become the synonym of life for many devotees. Like a real Maa, she nurtures her devotees through direct and indirect acts; visible and invisible hands.

I am very fortunate to be among those who have been receiving Amma’s blessings and unconditional love. Three years ago, I had the opportunity to be present at Amritapuri, to pay my respects on the occasion of Amma’s 60th birthday celebrations. Today, though I am not so lucky as to be present at the celebrations in person, I am delighted to be able to greet her, through technology. I have just returned from Kerala, and I was touched by the love and affection showered on me by the people of Kerala.

India is the land of such saints who have seen God in everything that can be seen. Mankind is prominent among those things. That is why service to mankind has become their main motto. I am aware that even in her childhood Amma was fond of giving her own food to others. Serving the old and the aged, and helping the needy have been her childhood passions.

Also, she used to worship Lord Krishna in her childhood.

These two qualities have been her strength. Devotion to God and Dedication to the Poor is thus, the message which I have personally taken from my association with Amma. Millions of devotees from all over the world also believe in the same.

I am aware of the social and charitable works done by various institutions and programmes run by Amma. She is always keen to help the world’s poor in meeting their five basic needs: food, shelter, health care, education, and livelihood.

I would like to particularly mention the works done and donations made in the field of sanitation, water, housing, education and health. I understand that some of those beneficiaries will get their certificates today. Particularly, Amma’s initiative on building toilets has been a great help in our Swachh Bharat Programme. Amma has pledged to contribute one hundred crore rupees towards sanitation efforts in Kerala. This pledge includes the construction of fifteen thousand toilets for the poor. Today, I am informed that throughout the State, Amma’s ashram has already completed construction of two thousand toilets.

I know that this is just one example of various works being done in the fields of environmental conservation and sustainability. One year ago, Amma generously donated one hundred crore rupees to the Namami Gange programme. I am also aware of Amma’s helping hands to mitigate the sufferings in the aftermath of natural disasters. It is also heartening to note that the Researchers at Amrita University are innovating new approaches to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.

At the end, I would like to convey my sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity of joining the celebrations.

Once again I express my deep regards to Amma.
