Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated today that India is making progress in many areas, including technology and the economy, even as spiritual places are reviving across the country.
In his virtual address at the inauguration of the Sai Hira Global Convention Centre at Prasanthi Nilayam in Puttaparthi, Andhra Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that India accounted for 40% of total real-time online transactions and urged devotees to transform the entire district of Puttaparthi (Sri Satya Sai district) into a digital economy.

Noting that climate change is a major concern for the entire globe in the twenty-first century, PM Modi stated that India has launched efforts such as Mission LiFE on a global scale.

He stated that the world trusts India’s leadership and that India is the prestigious G-20 presidency this year, with the theme “One Earth, One Family, One Future” inspired from the country’s fundamental thought. He went on to say that India has the world’s third largest startup ecosystem and is competing with other countries in sectors such as digital technology and 5G technology.

“On the one hand, spiritual centres are reviving in the country, while India leads in economy and technology.” “India is now one of the world’s top five economies,” he stated in a video.

PM Modi also praised the ongoing Leaders Conference of the Sri Sathya Sai Global Council, describing it as an effective platform for learning more about India and connecting with its people.

India’s worldwide attractiveness is growing, he added, referring to the International Yoga Day celebrations on June 21 at the United Nations (UN) headquarters in New York, which drew the greatest number of participants from around the world. PM Modi stated that Indian saints have maintained the principles of ‘Ek Bharat-Shreshtha Bharat’ for thousands of years.

The Prime Minister highlighted ‘Prem Taru,’ an effort to plant one crore trees in the next two years, in his call for support for tree planting and making India plastic-free. “I’ve been to Puttaparthi numerous times, but this time I couldn’t make it. I’ve been requested to come and give blessings, but I’ll come to take blessings but not give”, he explained.

The Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust has constructed the Sai Hira Global Convention Centre in Puttaparthi, which was funded by philanthropist Ryuko Hira, reflecting the vision of cultural interchange, spirituality, and global exchange.

The new facility will accommodate conferences, seminars, and cultural events, as well as promote conversation and understanding among people from all walks of life. It also has meditation halls, tranquil grounds, and lodging amenities.
