December 4, New Delhi, India (ANI): “Bharat is a statement of independence,” said External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Monday, underscoring the need to develop a cohesive narrative for “Bharat.”</p>
<p>In a speech given at the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) “Knowledge India Visitors Programme,” the EAM thanked the ICCR for its effort and praised the participants’ commitment to India.</p>
<p>Jaishankar started off by elucidating the many connotations of the name “Bharat” across different fields.</p>
<p>Building a Bharat story is the topic, which I felt would be fitting at this time because, in many respects, that is precisely what is occurring in India. What does creating a Bharat story entail now?” said Jaishankar.</p>
<p>“People sometimes see it as politics; sometimes they look at the wordplay and think that this is some kind of linguistic message but if you really look at the term Bharat, it today actually has multiple symbolisms in different domains,” he said.</p>
<p>According to the EAM, ‘Bharat’ has economic importance that goes beyond political and linguistic intricacies, as embodied in the idea of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat.’ He pointed out that this exhibits talent expression, self-sufficiency, and perseverance.</p>
<p>We will talk about Aatmanirbhar Bharat from an economic perspective. Therefore, it implies a certain amount of resiliency, self-sufficiency, contribution, or skill that is being expressed,” he said.</p>
<p>From a developmental perspective, Jaishankar said that “Bharat” represents a dedication to building an equitable, just, and inclusive society in which no one is left behind—a real litmus test for progress.</p>
<p>“Developmentally today, when we speak about Bharat, it also implies a commitment to creating an inclusive, just, fair society where no one is left behind and that is actually, in many ways, the true test of development,” he said.</p>
<p>Politically speaking, Jaishankar said, Bharat emphasizes that India’s interactions with the outside world should not be limited to rigid adherence to foreign frameworks but rather should highlight the nation’s own character and attributes.</p>
<p>“Bharat is a political declaration of independence. It is a proclamation that India’s global participation need not be conducted only within predetermined parameters or terms; our goal is, in many respects, to really express our unique character and attributes,” the EAM said.</p>
<p>‘Bharat’ refers to the languages, customs, legacy, and practices that make up its culture. The image of India that Jaishankar emphasized is one of a “Vishwamitra,” a friend who stands by you through difficult times and goes above and beyond what is often expected of it in international relations.</p>
<p>“Of course, there is also the cultural realm. Whenever we talk about Bharat, we may discuss about customs, languages, history, and language use. Furthermore, the India we aim to portray in the world is a Bharat that aspires to be seen as a “Vishwamitra,” a friend, and that has, at key junctures, truly stepped up in a manner that nations and societies ordinarily don’t do in international relations,” the speaker continued.</p>
<p>Jaishankar highlighted India’s G20 chairmanship as evidence of the country’s progress while considering its place in the world. He emphasized India’s capacity to unite the East and West, North and South, by presenting a harmonious culture in the face of extreme division.</p>
<p>“We attended the G20 with a purpose and a dedication to the global South… We demonstrated a harmonizing culture during the G20. Not everyone predicted that we would be successful in our G20 leadership, especially at a time when the globe is so polarized. We succeeded in building a bridge that connects the North and the South as well as the East and the West,” EAM Jaishankar remarked.</p>
<p>Jaishankar went on to describe India’s bold “Amrit Kaal,” a 25-year plan aimed at resolving historical grievances and carving out a prominent place for the country in the global order.</p>
<p>“Tomorrow’s India is dependent on our future outlook. Governments usually consider the period that lies ahead of them. A government’s perspective is based on successive elections. And it’s the finest five-year strategy you can have in that nation. We are discussing an Amrit Kaal today. a 25-year plan in which we really believe that our nation will undergo a profound change. In the process of securing our position in the global order, we will be able to resolve many historical issues,” he said.</p>
<p>Sarbananda Sonowal, Minister of Ports, Shipping Waterways, and Ayush, launched the ICCR’s “Knowledge India Visitors Programme.”</p>
<p>The minister emphasized in his inauguration speech the Ministry of Ayush’s worldwide successes in advancing traditional medicine.</p>
<p>Meenakshi Lekhi, the Minister of State for External Affairs and Culture, also spoke at the event. She said, “If we go back to the knowledge systems, we will find far more in common in the world than the differences, everybody is connected.”</p>
<p>In Delhi from December 4 to 6, around 80 distinguished academics, mostly heads of departments teaching Indian Knowledge Systems topics, attended the ‘Knowledge-India Visitors’ Programme’ organized by the ICCR.</p>
<p>This ICCR program aims to improve higher education in Indian knowledge systems globally by promoting cross-cultural communication. (ANI)</p>
