India: External Affairs Minister of India- S Jaishankar applauded the Indian community residing in foreign countries on Sunday during his address at the Youth Pravasi Bharatiya Divas held in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. 

While addressing the gathering, Jaishankar said that India has the largest and most talented diaspora in the world. The most appreciable part of the Indian community is their sense of bonding, and the conventions like the Pravasi Bhartiya Divas helped to promote it. 

The convention was attended by the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Chouhan, Union Sports Minister Anurag Singh Thakur, and Australian Parliamentarian Zaneta Mascarenhas. 

It is the 18th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas Convention which will be held for three days under the theme“Diaspora: Reliable partners for India’s progress in Amrit Kaal”.

While addressing, EAM mentioned that India shared a cordial relationship with its diaspora, and it was quite evident in the times of the COVID pandemic. He outlined that the government of India started Vande Bharat Mission, the Vaccine Maitri initiative, to focus on diaspora-centred partners. 

S Jaishankar also hailed the response they have received from the PIO-NRI community during the most difficult moments of our own Covid experience. He asserted that they met today, which shows the great bonds between them. 

He mentioned that their bonds have become stronger due to these trials and tribulations caused by the COVID period. The identity of diaspora is described by the fact of how closely they are connected to their roots

“So as we meet today, I can truly say that our bonds have become even stronger as a result of all the trials and tribulations that we went through during the Covid period,” he added.

“Here too, our efforts have been to encourage easier exposure to Indian culture and traditions abroad. Many of our Embassies, in fact I think most of them today now offer yoga, dance and music classes,” he said.
