Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi inaugurates the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra in New Delhi.
He said the Indian diaspora should be looked at, not just in terms of its numbers, but also in terms of its strength. He said that for years the term “brain drain” has been in vogue. But if we look at the diaspora as our strength we can convert it this to “brain gain.”
PM said that India has never attacked another nation. He recalled the sacrifices made by Indian soldiers protecting foreign lands in the two world wars, and added that the world must recognize this sacrifice.
He visited the exhibition on “Gandhi – Ek Pravasi.” He launched a booklet on Yoga Protocol for Diabetes control, and distributed prizes to winners of the ‘Know India’ Quiz.
