In India God Is Seen In Plants And Land Is Worshipped As Mother: PM Modi On Constitution Day 2021

Recent reports have been coming in from PM Narendra Modi who on the occasion of Constitution Day 2021 has said that it's unfortunate that obstacles are created in development of our nation, sometimes in the name of freedom of expression and sometimes through other means. 

It's attempted to judge our nation on parameters of other nations, without knowing our situation or aspirations of our youth according to PM.

The Prime Minister further added that today no nation directly exists as a colony to any other nation. But it doesn't mean that colonial mindset has ended. 

This mindset is giving rise to many distortions. We can see a clear example of this in the hurdles cropping up in development journey of developing nations.

Attempts are made to shut the path and resources for developing nations through which developed nations reached where they are today. 

In past decades, a web of different terminologies was spun for this. But the aim has always been one -to stop the progress of developing nations as per PM Modi.

The issue of environment is also being attempted to be hijacked for this purpose. We saw an example of this in the recent COP26 Summit. 

If we talk of absolute cumulative emissions, developed nations have caused 15% more emissions than India since 1850 to date.

Still, India is lectured on environmental conservation - that India that has living with nature embedded in its tradition, where God is seen even in plants, where the land is worshipped as the mother. 

For us, these values are not just confined to books as stated by PM Narendra Modi.

It's a reality that even after decades post-Independence, a large section of people in the country had to suffer exclusion.

Crores of those people who didn't even have a toilet at their house, who were living in the dark in the absence of electricity, who were without water according to PM.

Investing oneself in understanding their problems, their pain to make their lives easier - I consider this the real honour of the Constitution. 

I'm satisfied that in line with this sentiment of the Constitution, a vigorous drive is going on to convert exclusion into inclusion according to PM.

Hundreds of years of dependence pushed India into several problems. The India that was once called a golden bird was suffering from poverty, starvation and diseases. 

In that background, the Constitution always helped us in taking forward the nation according to PM Modi on Constitution Day, 2021.

If we compare to other countries, then the nations that became independent around the same time as India, are way ahead of us today. 

It means, that a lot of things still need to be done. We have to reach the goal together.

Our Constitution drafters gave us the Constitution in the light of the dreams seen by the people who lived and died for the independence and by cherishing the thousands of years long great traditions of India.
