Several opportunities are awaiting us, so a nation that is young, full of enthusiasm & a nation that is making efforts to realise the dreams, with a resolve, will never let these opportunities simply pass by.”
During COVID, situations are around the globe were disastrous. Helping anyone seemed a massive challenge. Countries couldn’t help each other, and even family members failed to help each other.
Doubts over India’s handling of the pandemic were seething all across the world. COVID wasn’t just a threat on India, but on entire humankind.
India fought an unknown enemy to save its citizens with a new attitude and frame of mind.
We had to find ways, build ways and save people. The entire country performed well and the world accepts that India has played a big role in saving mankind.
PM said, “The eyes of the world are on India. There are expectations from India and there is the confidence that India will contribute to the betterment of our planet”

PM Modi said, “You might’ve seen on the social media-an an old woman sitting outside her hut on a footpath, with a lit earthen lamp, praying for the welfare of India. We’re mocking her! If somebody who never went to school thinks they can serve India by lighting lamps, they can do it. It’s being mocked!”
PM further said, “India has seen days when there was a large threat of polio, smallpox. Nobody knew whether India will get a vaccine or how many people will get it. From those days, we’re now here, when our nation is making vaccines for world. This increases our self-confidence.”
PM Modi slams TMC
TMC MPs walked out of Rajya Sabha as soon as Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his address. PM slammed TMC by saying, “I was listening to Derek ji, he had chosen good words – Freedom of Speech, Intimidation. When I was listening to him, I was wondering if he is talking about Bengal or the country. He sees all this for 24 hours, so he might have said the same here too.”
