Language shouldn't be barrier but facilitator to develop 'love of science': Modi

PM Modi to address the nation in 39th edition of ‘Mann

"Peace, Unity and Goodwill" will be the driving forces for New India, said Modi.

In a bid to empower the Indian youth, Prime Minister Narenda Modi on Sunday proposed to organize a mock parliamentary session in every district around August 15 next year.

Stating that the science and technology department was working on multi-pronged projects, Modi said the priority was to set up a scientific infrastructure mechanism, drawing reference to the Centre's initiatives such as Start-up India and Skill Development Mission.

Conor McGregor catches DEADLY Aussie Flu - UFC star left 'SHAKING' in bed
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every season. But a number of tragic deaths in Australia also showed how the H3N2 flu strain can prove lethal to healthy adults.

The Prime Minister, who spoke in Hindi, also reached out to 18 to 25-year-olds, calling them "New India Youth" who, he said, stood for "aspirations, enthusiasm and energy", as he linked his call for a "New India" by 2022 while going on to paint a virtually utopian picture.

Modi then mentioned one Anjum Bashir Khan Khattak, who topped the Kashmir Administrative Services Examination despite being surrounded by terrorism and hatred in and around the Valley. Terrorism and violence were so widespread there that his family had to leave their ancestral land and flee from there.

For a young child, such an atmosphere of violence could easily create darkness and bitterness in heart, but Anjum did not let it be so and he never gave up hope. He urged all the people born in the 21st century to register themselves as voters and said that their vote will become the basis for a "new India". "The year 2018 is poised to be a watershed year when every scientist should direct his innovation and research for building a new India", he said. The power of the vote is the greatest strength of a democracy. He said it was important in today's world that the final outcome of the innovation and research should be judged for their positive impact on the lives of poor people. He said, a change can now be seen in the form of public participation in the rural and urban areas alike. He called them the "new India youth" and said that a new India must be free of corruption and casteism. This survey will cover a population of more than 40 crore in over 4,000 cities.

The PM also announced proudly that on this Republic Day, leaders of all ten ASEAN countries would be coming to India as chief guests. This time, not one but 10 chief guests would grace the Republic Day.

"But 26th January, 2018, will especially be remembered through the ages".

He said, 2017 has been special for both ASEAN and India. ASEAN completed its 50 years of formation in 2017 and in 2017, 25 years of India's partnership with ASEAN was completed.
