The first of them was commitment and dedication. He stated how through the same values, India successfully emerged from the recent pandemic. By practicing commitment and dedication, India took great strides in vaccination and various other aspects of dealing with the pandemic. Furthermore, he stated that belief was quintessential in leading a productive and successful life, and correlated this to the 360 degrees approachof our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi who laid his trust and confidence in the scientists for the vaccination drive, for the industrialists to facilitate financial and economic growth amongst many others. He mentioned how these principles have brought India to the centre-stage of world politics by elevating its stature, and how we can do the same by incorporating these principles in our way of life, by taking inspiration from Sir Shri Ram and what he stood for.
