Narendra Modi to join Shreshta Bharat Diwas celebrations in Mumbai

On 27 th January, 2014, Shri Narendra Modi will address the Shreshta Bharat Divas at Polo Grounds, Mahalaxmi Race Course, in Mumbai, at 8.30 pm.

Shreshta Bharat Divas is a one-of-its-kind tribute to recognize and honour the valiant sacrifice made by our brave soldiers. The date 27th January has another special significance in the contemporary history of India. It was on this day, 51 years ago, when Bharat Ratna and Nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar sang the soul stirring song ‘Ae Mere Vatan Ke Logon’ in the backdrop of the Indo-China war.

The Honourable Chief Minister of Gujarat and the Prime Ministerial Candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Shri Narendra Modi shall be the guest of honour and will personally felicitate Lataji and hundreds of other war veterans. Also for the first time ever, more than a lakh Indians will unite to sing ‘Ae Mere Vatan Ke Logon’. This unprecedented and collective feat would be a rich tribute to the invaluable contributions of our selfless jawans, who risk everything to keep our borders safe and secure.

Shreshta Bharat Divas is being organized by the youth body Citizens for Accountable Governance (CAG) in association with Lodha Foundation and Shahid Gaurav Samiti. The run up to Shreshta Bharat Divas also saw a series of online initiatives being launched by the organizers to spread awareness about the heroic feat of our martyrs and reinvigorate a sense of patriotism and oneness amongst the youth. The prominent amongst these was a nationwide patriotic poetry contest titled ‘Zara Yaad Karo Kurbaani’. The winners of this contest will receive a certificate signed by Shri Narendra Modi and Lataji. In an effort to create the largest online repository of articles about of the life of army personnel and their families, the organizers are also running a ‘Share Your Story’ online campaign on the event website. As a part of the Shreshta Bharat Divas, the ‘Write to the Heroes’ campaign has been launched, whereby every citizen of the country can write a message to our jawans. These messages will be printed and sent out to the soldiers through post cards. Shreshta Bharat Divas is also a platform for socially conscious citizens to support martyr families. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Army Welfare Fund and Zilla Sainiki Welfare Office.

Shreshta Bharat Divas will be one of the largest citizen driven initiatives to honour the men in uniform. The organizers have personally visited prominent colleges across Mumbai to invite students to participate in full strength for this historic event.  Alongside with former chiefs of the Air force, Army and Param Vir Chakra Awardees, representatives from the world of art, cinema and politics will also be participating in this show of unity.  Param Vir Chakra Awardee Bana Singh, parents of valiant martyrs Captain Manoj Pandey and Captain Vikram Batra are some of the prominent invitees who have confirmed their attendance. Some of the other prominent invitees include Former Army Chief General Ved Prakash Mallik, Shiv Sena President Mr. Uddhav Thackeray, Bhojpuri super star Manoj Tiwari and Marathi artist Ashok Hande. This event is open to all and shall be beamed live across all army cantonments in India.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an unprecedented disruption. And, it is not yet over. Much of the world is still to be vaccinated. That is why this initiative by President Biden is timely and welcome.


India has always seen humanity as one family. India's pharmaceutical industry has produced cost-effective diagnostic kits, drugs, medical devices, and PPE kits. These are providing affordable options to many developing countries. And, we have shared medicines and medical supplies with over 150 countries. Two indigenously developed vaccines have received "Emergency Use Authorization" in India, including the world's first DNA-based vaccine.

Several Indian companies are also involved in licensed production of various vaccines.

Earlier this year, we shared our vaccine production with 95 other countries, and with UN peace-keepers. And, like a family, the world also stood with India when we were going through a second wave.

For the solidarity and support extended to India, I thank you all.


India is now running the world's largest vaccination campaign. Recently, we vaccinated about 25 million people on a single day. Our grassroots level healthcare system has delivered over 800 million vaccine dose so far.

Over 200 million Indians are now fully vaccinated. This has been enabled through the use of our innovative digital platform called CO-WIN.

In the spirit of sharing, India has made CO-WIN and many other digital solutions available freely as open-source software.


As newer Indian vaccines get developed, we are also ramping up production capacity of existing vaccines.

As our production increases, we will be able to resume vaccine supply to others too. For this, the supply chains of raw materials must be kept open.

With our Quad partners, we are leveraging India's manufacturing strengths to produce vaccines for the Indo-Pacific region.

India and the South Africa have proposed a TRIPS waiver at the WTO for COVID vaccines, diagnostics and medicines.

This will enable rapid scaling up of the fight against the pandemic. We also need to focus on addressing the pandemic economic effects.

To that end, international travel should be made easier, through mutual recognition of vaccine certificates.


I once again endorse the objectives of this Summit and President Biden's vision.

India stand ready to work with the world to end the pandemic.

Thank you.
Thank you very much
