India did not see COVID-19 as problem, it became source of pharmacy for world: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Sunday, virtually addressed the 125th anniversary celebrations of Prabuddha Bharata, a monthly journal of Ramakrishna order, started by Swami Vivekananda.

 

It is a matter of joy that we are celebrating the 125th anniversary of Prabuddha Bharat. This is no ordinary journal, it was started by none other than Swami Vivekananda back in 1896, that too, at the young age of 33. It is among the longest running English journals of the country, PM Modi said.

 

There is a very powerful thought behind the name Prabuddha Bharat. Swami Vivekananda named this journal Prabuddha Bharat? to manifest the spirit of our nation. He wanted to create an awakened India. Those, who understand Bharat are aware that it is beyond just a political or territorial entity. Swami Vivekananda expressed this very boldly and proudly.
He saw India as a cultural consciousness that has been living and breathing for centuries, an India that only emerges stronger after every challenge despite contrary predictions. He wanted to make India Prabuddha? or awakened, PM Modi added.
Swami Vivekananda said that the remedy of weakness was not brooding over it, but thinking of strength. When we are thinking of obstacles we get buried in them, but when we think in terms of opportunities, we get the way to move forward.
Take the COVID-19 global pandemic as an example, what did India do? It did not see the pandemic as a problem and remain in the same place, India focused on solutions. From producing PPE kits, to becoming a pharmacy of the world, our country had gone from strength to strength. It has become the source of support to the world, he said.
During the crisis, India is at the forefront of developing COVID-19 vaccines. Just a few days ago, India had launched the largest vaccination drive. We are also using this capacity to help other nations, he added.

An elderly couple was mauled by a tiger in Chor Bawali on January 25 while on their way from Narsinghpur (Madhya Pradesh) to Nagpur on January 25. The couple was accompanied by their 25-year-old son in a car. Following the tiger attack, the couple was admitted to Kingsway Hospital in Nagpur.

While on their way to Nagpur, the family of three stopped near Chor Bawali for passing urine. When the 58-year-old woman got out of the car, the tiger, which was probably wounded by a previous vehicular assault, caught hold of the woman’s hand and bit her thumb. When the woman’s husband stepped out of the car to help his wife, the tiger attacked him as well and injured his right leg. A terrfied son started throwing stones at the tiger, who eventually ran away.

The couple was given first aid by the bystanders before being driven to Nagpur by the son to Kingsway hospital. Speaking to Nation Next, treating surgeon Dr Prakash Jain informed that the family was terrified when it arrived at the hospital. Dr Jain said: “The couple is now stable. Tiger mauling is always serious. The couple was lucky to have sustained minor injuries in the incident.”
