PM Tags : Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on the 36th episode of his monthly radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’ In his address the prime minister touched upon "powerful ideas" of distant peoples Recounting previous Mann ki Baat addresses Modi stated that critical analysis of the radio programme would help improve its impact Modi then lauded the nation for its diversity and urged Indians to make themselves more aware of this aspect Here’s the full text of Narendra Modi’s address in the 36th episode of Mann ki Baat: My dear countrymen Namaskar to all of you It is now a full three years since I started speaking to you over “Mann Ki Baat” This is the 36th episode today “Mann Ki Baat” has provided me with a unique opportunity to get connected with various feelings and positive energy of the country; emotions of our people which include their desires expectations and at times even grievances which come to their minds And I have never said that these are the expressions of my mind; Mann Ki Baat reflects our countrymen’s minds their expressions their expectations And when I say things in Mann Ki Baat people from across the country send their ideas experiences and feelings to me I am probably not able to convey all these to you but still I get a treasure-full of ideas over e-mail over telephone over mygov or over NarendraModiApp I receive a multitude of such ideas and suggestions Most of these are inspiring to me File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Reuters A large number of these ideas are regarding improvements in the functioning of our government There are personal grievances and complaints and sometimes attention is drawn to community problems I just take half an hour of your time in a month but people keep sending suggestions ideas and other material over Mann Ki Baat during all 30 days of the month And the result of this whole exercise is that the government has started realizing the sensitivities and powerful ideas of the people of far off places And this is why the three-year journey of Mann Ki Baat is in fact a journey of our countrymen their emotions and their feelings I am thankful to our countrymen for having provided me an opportunity to understand the feelings of the common man In Mann Ki Baat I have always remembered one sentence of Acharya Vinoba Bhave He always used to say ‘A- sarkari Asarkari’ meaning non government is effective I have also tried to focus on the people of the country in Mann Ki Baat have kept it away from political hues & tried to remain connected with you with a stable mind rather than being diverted by the heat of the moment or anguish I surely believe and feel that now after three years social scientists universities research scholars media experts would undertake its analysis and highlight its every aspect positive as well as negative And I am sure that this brainstorming could be useful for Mann Ki Baat in future and will infuse a new energy into it And in one episode of Mann Ki Baat I had said that while having our food we must also be conscious of consuming only as much as we need and see to it that there is no wastage But later I received letters from all corners of the country Many social organizations and many youth are already observing this in practice I come to know about a lot many people who were involved in ensuring that leftover food was best utilized I derived much satisfaction and joy to learn this Once in Mann Ki Baat I had mentioned about a retired teacher from Maharashtra Shriman Chandrakant Kulkarni who donated 51 post – dated cheques of Rs 5000/- each for the cleanliness drive out of his total monthly pension of Rs 16000/- And then I saw that a lot many people came forward to donate for this cause Once I saw a selfie of a sarpanch with a daughter and referred to the same in Mann Ki Baat In no time “Selfie with Daughter” became a big campaign not only in India but across the whole world This is not only an issue of social media It became an incident to create a new self-confidence and a feeling of self-pride in every daughter Every parent started feeling that they should take a selfie with their daughter Every daughter started regaining her own self-confidence & self-esteem I was in a meeting with the Tourism Department recently I asked people who were planning to go travelling that where-ever they visit ‘Incredible India’ they must send photographs of those places Lakhs of photographs from every corner of India were received which actually became a treasure for those working in the tourism sector I’ve experienced through ‘Mann Ki Baat’ that even a tiny incident can launch a massive campaign Today I felt like sharing it since I thought that it has been three years and events & incidents over those three years ran across my mind The nation is always ready to move in the right direction Every citizen of the country wants to do something for the benefit of others for social good for the country’s progress This is what I gathered learnt and understood from our countrymen during three years of the Mann Ki Baat campaign This is the most valuable capital and enormous strength for any country I heartily bow to my countrymen In one episode of Mann Ki Baat I had discussed about Khadi and Khadi is not a fabric but an idea a principle I have noticed that these days interest in Khadi has increased very much and I had just said that I was not asking people to makeover into wearing Khadi permanently; rather since there are a number of fabrics then why not Khadi also be one of the fabrics of your choice May be a bed-sheet in the house a handkerchief or a curtain it has been felt that the younger generation has got interested in Khadi Sale of Khadi has increased and as a result of this the poor man’s household has directly got connected to employment Discount is offered on Khadi from 2nd October and people get quite a good rebate I once again urge that we should try and take forward the Khadi movement We should follow the spirit of helping the poor to be able to light a Diwali lamp The poor of our country will derive strength from this and we must do it The increasing interest in Khadi has infused a new thinking in those working in the Khadi sector as well as those connected in any way with Khadi How do we bring in new technology how do we increase productivity how do we introduce looms driven by solar power How do we rejuvenate our traditional heritage which was lying inactive for 20 25 or 30 years Sewapuri Khadi Ashram at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh was lying closed for 26 years but has got a fresh lease of life now A number of thoughts were implemented New employment opportunities were created for a number of people Khadi Gramodyog revived its training centre at Pampore in Kashmir and in this sector Kashmir has so much to offer With the reopening of this training centre the new generation will get a boost in jobs in manufacturing in weaving in creating new things and it feels so good to see that even big corporate Houses have started including Khadi items as Diwali gifts Even people have started exchanging Khadi items as gifts We now experience how something grows naturally My dear countrymen we had taken a resolve in last month’s Mann Ki Baat and had decided to observe a 15-day Cleanliness Festival before Gandhi Jayanti We shall connect people through cleanliness Our Honourable President inaugurated this programme and the country got connected The old or the young men or women city or village everyone has become a part of this Cleanliness campaign now And when I say “Sankalp Se Siddhi” we can see for ourselves as to how a Cleanliness Campagin is advancing towards Sankalp Siddhi that is Attainment through Reslove Everyone accepts this co-operates in this and makes a contribution in realizing this I am grateful to our Honourable President But every section of society has taken this as its own campaign everyone has got connected to this Whether it be people from the sports world academicians schools colleges universities farmers workers officers government employees police or army jawans – every one has got connected with this A kind of a pressure has been created in public places and now people resist if someone tries to spoil or to make a public place dirty in any way and even those spoiling public places are also feeling this pressure It is a good thing and I am pleased to know that just in the first four days of “Swachhata Hi Sewa Abhiyan” more than 75 lakh people joined these activities with
